GABE Event -- We're In!

We were planning on being passive participants in Twinkie's GABE Event, but we've been thinking about it and have decided to be active participants instead.  That means we'll be giving something away.  I don't think there really are too many rules.  It's a way to find new blogs and perhaps win some great stuff.  If you click on the link in our sidebar, it should take you to a list of other participants and explain more about it.

So, here's what we're giving away.  We wanted it to be something that any dog could use, so we thought and thought about our favorite things and decided that we would give away a Wiggles, Wags and Whiskers harness.  It has been wonderful for Bunny and I know a lot of greyhound people who swear by them for their dogs.  They come in sizes wide enough to fit any dog, though, big or little, so we felt this was a good thing that anybody could make use of.  They come in a variety of colors, so they should suit even the pickiest of pups!

All you need to do to be entered in the giveaway is to make a comment in this thread and tell us something interesting.  Hopefully, we got all the important information in this post!  Good luck!  We'll choose a name at random on April 18, so make your comments by April 17.
Blueberry Types for the Blog

  2. Yippee! Welcome aboard the good ship GABE! I'm Most Excited about the harness thingie. I have one from Sense-ation and it has helped me a lots. But they don't come in all those Most Pretty colors. Thanks for offering such a terrific giveaway!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  3. Great post! Great giveaway. I would like to win one. I've always wanted my own hula hoop :)
    Your link is up, ladies.

  4. What a great giveaway! Dory is always looking for a new harness!!

    Let's see...interesting huh?? Did you know that the Bluebonnet was the Texas State Flower??? They are blooming all over the place now!!

    We are really enjoying the whole GABE experience!

  5. Something interesting... 'I can't think of a thing to give away right now."

    Sigh - so I am in, but as an inactive participant.

    However, if I win this I will donate it to my greyhound rescue group for their yearly raffle to raise money at their Greyfest.

  6. Hey, great to see you are playing too! We'd certainly be able to make use of that prize, as harnesses come in very handy for our hikes in the woods! This GABE event is the best thing since sliced bread!

    Brutus the Frenchie

  7. Ummmmm, Bunny dat's not going to fits me.

  8. Puddles, are you sure? Did you look at the link to the site? They make them small enough to fit Italian Greyhounds and other toy breeds.

  9. yay, miss bunny!! i'm glad you decided to be "active". teehee. i wear a harness just like yours, except mine's black. i think it's boring. i'd love a more exciting color!

  16. That's a lovely harness. Have you used the no pull harness that they have? Oh, wait a minute. What am I saying? I LIKE to pull on the leash. It's my humans who would prefer that I didn't.

    wags, Lola

  17. Oh Boy, I would LOVE to win one of those!!!
    Something interesting... Dachshunds were bred to go into BADGER holes and force them out. I only did in groundmole holes, though.

  18. Hello, we are a house full of cats here... but there is a bunny who would like that harness :)

    Thank you for a great give away!


  19. I hope you find this interesting enough... I love to eat worms. Drives the peeps crazy, but everytime I go outside I scavenge the driveway and sidewalks for dried up worms. They can't be too fresh or I don't like the consistency though.

    Nice giveaway. I'm not sure if I'd like a harness or not, but I'm willing to give it a try. Especially if it's free!

  20. Pawesome prize, Bunny!
    Kisses and hugs

  21. LOve your blog!
    Something interesting? Every Saturday when I take my hounds to the beach for their weekend coffee foam, we meet at least one new greyhound - which means in my sleepy little corner of Western Australia, Greys are slowly taking over peoples' hearts!!!!

  22. LOve your blog!!!

  25. I love hearing about your hounds' adventures! I've got two goofy greyhound boys, one of which might love a harness :-)

    Stratocaster's an interesting color, he's fawn with black brindle, and Folsom eats more grass on our walks than any cow :-P

  26. Well, I actually don't have anything interesting to say...Except, did you know Tibbie run on the race track one time, during a fun run? She didn't even look at the lure, haha, but she had fun. She even won a prize! She won the consolation prize! It was so funny. We got a nice book about sighthound adoption.

    Well, now I'm off to start reading the other blog entries. I haven't been able to read it the past days.. Normally I come everyday. I love to read the adventures of Bunny, Lilac and Blueberry.

  27. My name is Mabel Lou and I was adopted 8 years ago. Before that, I was adopted and adopted and adopted... My mom was my 8th mom by the time I was four months old. They called me "Hell on Paws!" But my mom never gave up on me. It took 8 tries to find my forever home... Oh, and I was "On sale" for 8 dollars!

    Come visit us at creekhiker... My mom makes great jewelry!

  40. Hi Bunny,

    Nice to meet you. Something interesting would be that I refused to walk anywhere for the first year that I was in my new home. I finally gave in and started walking when Mom and Dad started carrying a peanut butter sandwich. You have to train your people right and not give in until they understand your demands. I'm also a fawn houndie, so I would look gorgeous in a Wiggles, Wags and Whiskers harness.



We love hearing your comments!
