A FURRY TAIL - Contest Winner!


The Contest Winner

Once upon a time....

I met a sweet angel at six weeks.  We picked her out on line, since we wanted a female Havanese, and Brindle in color.  How could you not love this face.  She was the perfect dog.

We got to pick her up at 9 weeks, so excited to have a new baby in the house!!

What an innocent face.

She has grown into an amazing young lady, of 7 months now.
She's much more capable of playing...running...jumping...and....
 (hang in there, the winning name is coming)

destroying my list of names for the contest!
Not so innocent now, huh? Ha ha!
Okay, I have to admit, I was a bit ticked.  She got yelled at, we had a very serious conversation, for about three seconds, then she ran to the next thing!

Hang in there, the winning name is coming!

So, I got the bright idea of taping it back together, since I worked on this list every night for a week, being so careful to be accurate, and correct with every entry.  And thank you to SO many who posted the contest on your blog.  Many thanks!

Okay here it is!

I am so happy to announce the winner of my contest is (drum roll please).....

Cat of In the Light of the Moon

I used this website to pick the name for me, snappy easy peasy!

Congratulations Cat!  I hope you enjoy all your goodies!  
Please email me your address and I'll get it sent to you asap.

Thanks to all you wonderful folks who entered.  I was blown away at the response, I mean really blown away.  I was happy to offer these goodies, and look at the new friends we all made.

Good luck on all your resolutions you shared, words for the year you picked, challenges you want to meet head on, and aspirations for those who don't make resolutions.  There seems to be a common thread throughout...

more art, less worry, more play, more organization.

Story of my life.

And the other story of my life, Life with Miss Maddie,
continues on.

They lived happily ever after!

Love and Hugs to all.

Oh I can sooooo relate to our fuzzy lil' babies tearing something up. Or in my case, a male cat peeing on it!! The story is on my blog
"Moses and Foo Foo's Santa" I thought I would clobber him but, I didn't. I DID yell at him, AND chased him around the room! Love your blog, come by and see me! :)
