Pippin’s Peek at the Past Puzzle #1

Mercy had her Miss Mercy Monday Mystery game, and my Dad told Grammy that I should get a chance to host a game, too! We decided to call it the Pippin’s Peek at the Past Puzzle, and think that it will also help a lot of our new followers to learn a bit more about the Country Corgis.

It will follow the same format as Mercy’s game, with 5 sessions, and the winners who answer the puzzle correctly will each get a Badge to display for the weekly wins. At the end of the 5 sessions, all of the winner’s names will be put into a Corgi Toss and the Grand Prize Winner will be chosen.

The Grand Prize Winner will get their choice of one of two prizes…

1. A “Little Dott Finds A Home” book  OR

2. A $15 Gift Certificate to our Country Corgi CafePress Shop (We’ve added a LOT of new designs – here are a few…)   









 











AND

A $10 donation in your name to the Unity Thrift and Outreach Dog Rescue that Grammy’s Sister works with. This is also the Dog Rescue Group that Grammy has fostered for during emergencies (including our dad… ooops…)

That is what Oskar chose for his GABE prize. Naunie (Grammy’s Sister) and her friend (Trixie) were very happy to receive this help and say a BIG “Thank You, so much!” to Oskar.

The following 2 links go to Newspaper Articles about Linda Hodges (Trixie) and Unity Thrift and Outreach if you’d like to know more.

Now, for our first Pippin’s Peek at the Past Puzzle. Today, one of our favorite things happened! It happens every two or three months and usually results in a TREASURE HUNT for all of us! What fun! If you follow the link, you will see the very FIRST of the Treasure hunts my brother and sisters got to attend with the rest of my family! Gimli wrote that one, and please remember that we were only 3 months old, and just learning to write at the time, ok?

Below, we are chewing on pieces of the treasure that Grammy brought in for us today (because it started raining outside just as they finished…)

More, Grammy… I need seconds… 

thirds?

Stay back and you won’t lose your nose!

Mama Dott REALLY gets into chewing on HER piece of treasure!

Yummy! This is SOOOOO GOOOOODDD!!!

Pippin’s Peek at the Past Puzzle Questions (You must answer ALL 3 of them to win this week’s challenge)
1. What happens that creates our “treasure?”
2. What IS our chewy “treasure?”
3. What do they have Cory do to make him give up his part of the treasure? (Hint: Gimli got muddy because of this…)

Remember, too, that Grammy will have the comments in a "moderation mode" so that everyone will have a fair chance at figuring out the puzzle. You will have until approximately Wednesday at Noon, Pacific Time to get in your answers.  Hope you enjoy this week's Peek at the Past Puzzle.

let's see:

1. the horse got his hoofs clipped I'm going to say (or whatever it is when he had to use those clippers)

2 the chewy treasure must be the horses hoof nails (remember I'm not a country person, LOL)

3. I think you need to soak the hoofs in water and that's why all the dogs thought it was fun to play in the muddy water and then had to have a bath

cute game again Linda :)

Okay, Okay...I thinks I got it!

1. A man comes and clips Cory's hooves.
2. Part of Cory's hooves. (So lemme get this straight. You guys chew on a horse's toenails. Hmmmm...)
3. They makes him stand in water so his hooves will get soft.

Did I gets it right?

I liked learning stuff abouts you that I didn't know before!

Wiggles & Wags,

Hi, there! Since we saw your comment on our blog, thought we'd stop over to your blog (or rather, I, Rogue, directed my mom to steer the mouse over to your blog)! We're still a bit new to blogging, so we're only just discovering how many corgi blogs are out there! We'll stop back soon!

We can't play cos we have fallen behind with your adventures!
We will go off and read backwards - we would love it if you guys could come over and come hunting deer with us.
You can never have too many dogs with little legs to outsmart these deer!
love
