Howl-a-lejah! Mom's persistence in dressing us in stupid costumes finally pays off — Big Dog Time! Earlier last month, Aunt Cozy sent Mom a link to a Howl-o-ween photo contest being sponsored by BigDogs.com. After having witnessed one fifi dog after another winning contest time and time again, Mom had become jaded about entering us in such popularity contests.
But she figured, what the heck. Aunt Coe took the time to send the information which took less than two minutes to complete, so why not? After completing the entry process, Mom chalked it up to two minutes of her life that she'd never get back and forgot about it. That is until Monday night when her computer chimed, indicating that a new e-mail message had arrived. Expecting nothing but an e-bill, she was greatly surprised to find out that Roger and I were the Grand Prize winners of the Big Dog Howl-o-ween Photo Contest.
What does that mean? Rog and I have a check for $500 and an e-check for $500 to BigDogs.com coming our way. Dad said that the $500 will help offset this year's heating bills. Mom, on the other hand, has plans for a shopping spree. What a fitting birthday present for Roger who turns 4-years-old tomorrow. Happy Birthday, Little Man! We're all so very fortunate to have you in our lives.
While tomorrow is going to be "all about Rog", Saturday marks the one-year Animal-versary of Thelma Lou becoming my little baby Bully sister. Here's to celebrating two momentous occasions in one weekend. Let's get this party started.
