Did we have a Winner? By Mercy

The Miss Mercy Monday Mystery is a game to see who can sniff through the clues and come up with the correct answers to WIN!!! If we have more than one pup/person who gets all the answers, then we will have a Corgi Toss to chose the winner.

There were three questions to answer this week to solve the mystery: 1. What was the contraption in the picture, 2. Who used it, and 3. Why?

Remember, the clues to the answer were in the Tidbit Post. There was a link to our post about the 100 Dog Year Squirrel War, and there was this picture with the name, who used it and why: “Our battle [with the squirrels] started way back, in the days of cat –i– pults and tre-bow-shays, with Grandpa Buddy and Grandma Misty manning the huge “feline” flinging machines.” 1. It was a cat-a-pult or tre-bow-shay 2. Buddy & Misty 3. To fling things at the squirrels [in the fight…].

Mango, Khyra, Dory, and Dozer all got the answer to the first question right on the name of the machine. No one got the second question’s answer correct. I would have taken Buddy, Mist, JR, or even OC as they were all involved in this era of the war.

Twinkietinydog, Betty & Koda from A Corgi in S. California, and Dory all got the third answer by saying that it was used for fighting squirrels.

Dory came the closest, because she got two of the three answers needed, but this isn’t horseshoes (that’s a people joke about getting close and has NOTHING to do with real horse’s shoes) so no cigar (which is ANOTHER people joke, but I don’t even think THAT’s very funny because who would want to win one of THOSE nasty things!) Our prizes will be better than cigars, believe ME… and you also get awarded one of our MMMM Winner buttons which you can see in the side bar!

I did go back and leave a comment with a hint in it to try to help… I’m sorry we didn’t have a winner this week either, but better luck next time, and maybe, with these two practices, we will award a prize next time. We might not have a Mystery contest every week, once we get our first winner. We might go to every other Monday after that.

After we have 5 winners, we will do a Corgi Toss of those names and the grand prize will be the winner’s choice of, EITHER one of Dott’s books (See a preview of the first few pages HERE or click the preview button in our sidebar), OR a $20 gift certificate to our Country Corgi CafePress store.

We hope you will join us on our next Miss Mercy Monday Mystery, and good luck to you all!

got it now, Linda. I need to pay more attention to the tidbit post. This is a cute game and I think once I get the hang of it, it will be easier to solve them :)

awesome prizes you have too!

I can't say you didn't try to help us! I guess we were helpless and hopeless, the bunch of us. I loved the presentations and the post in general. I don't foresee winning any of your Mysteries, therefore I offer myself for the Corgi Toss BOL

That sounded like a good game with great organisation!
We are never any use at quizzes!
