Spinning . . . for . . . PRIZES

Unrelated to POST topic
But I like this picture of me

At the Bay Area Pet Expo, there were all kind of raffles and contests and ways to win products. Most of these I don't even bother with BECAUSE I am not known for being particularly adept at these things. Once in a while, though, I take a chance and get lucky.

Such was the occasion at the SPINNING WHEEL. This particular vendor was collecting money for rescues - I think it was for large dogs, like Pit Bulls or GSD. I like all dogs so thought - why not? My cousin C, who is nine years old and human, helped me out. Her first spin was not too good and the pin stopped kind of in-between prizes. So the nice LADY running the spinning wheel let her try again. This time she SPINNED. . .SPUN . . . whatever. . . it really good and I won a COLLAR!

I have a lot of collars; but you know - they are like shoes and a GIRL just cannot have enough collars. I have some to coordinate with most of my outfits. Anyhow, I was very excited when I won a collar and chose red.

Well, look at the collar compared with the sample food.
Those samples are 3 meals worth of kibble! And that
Milk Bone on the right is the biggest one sold.
Well, I am not sure if this Lady actually LOOKED at me because the collar she handed to me was GIGANTIC! If you can gauge just how large it is from this picture. . . It was B-I-G!

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it because. . . although it is super cute and red and has little Scottie dogs on it. . . there was no adjusting it to fit me. Plus, it was so heavy I think it easily weighed about half of me and that is a lot of weight for a PUG!

So what was I to do with such a collar? Well, I thought of having a contest. But, I thought, what if a small dog wins? Then what? Then I thought. . . who is going to trust me after it took 5 months to send prizes from the LAST contest I ran?

The solution struck me as I was sitting in the dining room enjoying a ray of sun. . . I can give it to my FURiend who I have NEVER met but whose brotheroid, Louie, once greeted me so exuberantly that I ended up in his MOUTH. . . SUNSHINE!!!!

Anyhow - that is just what I did.

Here is a picture of Sunshine, my FURiend, in her new collar. It looks absolutely lovely with her naturally RED fur. I am so pleased that I thought of her.
