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.
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!
Here are the horses of Corgi Country. We've had Cory since he was a little over 3 years old, and Tuffy is my son's AQHA Palomino gelding. He is trained to do both western and dressage work, though he is no longer shown.
Below them is our Border Collie, Sadie...
Cory, my 26 yr. old Peruvian Gelding
Tuff is an AQHA 26 yr. old Palomino
Auntie Sadie (aka Shady Sadie Lady)
Sadie is our black Border Collie. She is a big help to Grammy around the house and property...

Proverbs – A Bible Study and A Country Grammy’s Walk With God blogs:
Grammy has 6 kids and 16 grandkids. She worked for 18 years with severely handicapped children, but is retired now, and writes a blog to share God’s wisdom as written by the Bible in Proverbs, as well as a blog that shares the things that God is showing her. She draws in pastels and graphite, and has her own a storefront at: http://www.cafepress.com/GrammysCorgiCountry.
She and Papa have 5 acres in a VERY rural setting. The closest town is a couple of miles away and our nearest neighbor is about a quarter of a mile away on one side with no homes on the other three sides for MANY miles. We are surrounded by BLM land which makes it really nice and quiet. We get to listen to, and watch, many kinds of wild critters.
