And, the Keurig Giveaway Winner is –

Monday, August 1, 2011



Your hubby will be happy to learn that he is now off the hook!  I’ll be in touch soon to get your mailing address, so that Keurig can sent you your very own Platinum Home Brewing System.


Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway.  I wish I had a Keurig brewer to give each and every one of you!  But, don’t fret.  I’ll have a few more fun giveaways up my sleeve in the near future.

In case anyone is wondering how the winner was selected, let me assure you the process was all very high tech and scientific.  Let me introduce you to my brilliant and capable assistant: 

Bella-10-mosThis is Bella.  From an early age, Bella has displayed an intense curiosity and thirst for  learning.  She is very cerebral!

36660_1507507766543_1199779554_31449562_2005057_nBella is much more interested in current events than playing with her bully stick.

Bella was up for the challenge of helping me select our Keurig giveaway winner.  Can’t you tell how interested she was?

keurig-2Well, maybe not at first.  But once she realized that there were hundreds of little slips of paper for her to chew up choose from in that basket, she was definitely “in”.

keurig-3Hmmm.  Any cookies in there?

To make it a little easier for Bella to “nose around”, I dumped all of the entries out on the floor. keurig-5Look at how methodical she is!  See how intently she’s sniffing out just the right one?

keurig-6Round and round and round she goes.  Where she’ll stop, nobody knows…

keurig-7Decisions!  Decisions!

keurig-8Mmmm.  Tasty!

keurig-9Ding, ding, ding! I think we have a winner!

    I have a six year old golden, Sebastian, and this looks just like him. He always spends time investigating whatever he puts in his mouth, whether it’s a treat we give him, a tennis ball vs. a rope, or whatever paper happens to be in front of him. And the picture of Bella with her paws together and mouth around the paper slip is a mirror image of Sebastian. I never understood — and still don’t — his obsession with paper. To this day, he will chew up any paper plates, newspapers, etc. in sight. We have trained him to fetch the newspaper (which fyi is very convenient for us!) but after he is rewarded with a treat, the paper is fair game according to him.

    It’s cruel…You’re making me want to get another golden!

      Sebastian sounds like a sweetheart! Bella is exactly the same way. She never just takes an offered treat. She has to put it down and examine it before she’ll eat it. And, don’t get me started on the paper obsession! Between used up paper towels and socks, she is relentless! :)

    Brilliant! My Golden, Bailey, is available for paperwork, if Bella is unavailable!

      Thanks! I’ll keep that in mind. Lol! 😉
