All for Emma...NOT!

A couple of weeks ago, the wonderful Dogs on Thursday crew of Chan, Sue, Natalie and Nichole decided to have a contest to celebrate DOT's 100th post. It was great - to enter, all you had to do was make a donation to your favorite pet cause. Any kind of donation...money, time, blankets, food...whatever. I happened to be participating in a couple of Brittany transports around that time, so it was easy-peasy!

Fudge, one of Sue's very handsome Portuguese Water Dogs chose the winners, and guess who he chose? Me! Actually, according to Emma, she is the winner, but that's just because she thinks that any box that comes into the house is hers and hers alone. Nichole put together a fabulous prize box for all of the residents of Britknitterville.


Doggy shaped pasta, dog biscuit mix, collars and leashes, sticky notes, magnetic calendar, stickers, and more. One very special surprise is a set of three stitch markers made by Nichole. I just love her stitch markers - they don't snag on the yarn the way some do, and they are downright gorgeous!

The fur babes insisted on modeling their new collars from Aunty Nic. Emma chose first (surprise, surprise) and she claimed the ladybug collar. Tara said she would be very pleased with the dragonfly print collar.

And Cooper said the leaf collar's colors are sufficiently manly for a stud such as himself.
Emma says , "Fine, they can each have one of the new collars, as long as I get lots of belly scratches."
Everybody says "Thanks for our goodies, Aunty Nichole!"

I'm glad you're feeling better, I had that virus and love the cough syrup (knocks me out, too). I won't say I'm glad you're back to work......but you would have missed the geese. Imagine sitting on 5 babies.
