Lucky Sunday

Standard

Hi Everybody………….

You know how you get to wondering  why you enter contests and giveaways yet NEVER seem to win a thing?  Well that’s kinda how I feel sometimes……….but I sure don’t feel like that anymore!  Nope – sure don’t!  Why?  Well last week I found out I won TWO – – – that’s TWO giveaways!  One from entering a giveaway on my good sheltie doggy friend Dakota’s blog Dakota’s Den and the other one I’ll save to tell you about when my winning box of fun arrives!!  Spread the fun out more or less……..Tee Hee. 

Anyway the package I won from Dakota’s Den arrived yesterday from the ASPCA which is a super organization we totally support and love.  Guess what was in it?????  Well, you don’t have to guess because Mom took a photo of me taking a peek at everything……….

Wow Mom....look at all this great STUFF!

Wow Mom….look at all this great STUFF!

There was a tote bag, an ASPCA magnet (which is now on my refrigerator), a box of animal greeting cards (way cool), an orange ASPCA bracelet, an eco-friendly kitty mouse toy, TWO packages (one in a tin and one not in a tin) of my Dad’s MOST favorite shortbread cookies in the universe – Walker’s Shortbread (the cookies are shaped like scotty dogs!!!!!) and a Christmas stocking with a glitter pen so I can write my name on the paw print on the stocking……….the BEST thing about the stocking is that means I have TWO stockings “hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon will be there”………YAY!

There was one other thing too – a doggy jingle bell collar.  Well you know we have no doggies here and there aren’t any doggies near us either so Mom made a very cool door decoration with the collar – she slipped it over the hook our door wreath is on so it’s now a jingle bell door wreath just perfect for the holiday!  Whenever the front door is opened, it jingles!!

I want to thank my friend Dakota and his “Mom” Miss Caren for having the giveaway and I still can’t believe that MY name came up in the drawing as winner.   They have lots of great contest and giveaways so if you don’t know about Dakota’s Den or Dakota’s brother Cody of CAT CHAT please visit their bloggies and meet them. 

Say – Mom – since I’m a winner – I don’t suppose I can have an extra piece of bacon for Sunday breakfast????????  Awwww….c’mon Mom!!!

Holiday Hugs, Sammy

    • Hi Cupcake! I’ll have to pry it out of my Dad’s hands since he’s a shortbread nut BUT I’m thinking MAYBE I will get a chunk of it as a special treat – after all, I’m the one who won the stuff in the first place – right?????

  1. Sammy that picture of you is so cute! I can see you leaning in with a serious sense of purpose checking out those goodies. How lucky you are and your Dad too getting shortbread cookies. We LOVE shortbread cookies in our house and we dip them in Jif chocolate hazlenut spread! And if that isn’e enough to make your Sammy Self all content and happy you get bacon this morning! Enjoy your Sunday Sammy with your family 🙂

    • Hi Doggy and Leo! How lucky can one old cat get huh? Well, needless to say I DID get extra bacon this morning – – – mostly because I asked very nice for it but maybe the fact I looked so pitiful when I asked? Gets ’em every time! HA HA HA

          • Nylablue one thing I’ve learned in all my years is NEVER give up hope – for anything – including treats like shortbread (or bacon). Sounds like you have some mighty expensive shortbread where you live. I think the small boxes of Walker’s are less than $5 at Mom’s grocery store. You just KEEP ON HOPIN’ girl!
