Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Merry Christmas, everyone! 

We want to thank all of our friends that have sent us such beautiful cards and Holiday wishes.  We appreciate the prayers as well.  Grammy is getting better, though still having some trouble with her breathing (asthma).

We really miss everyone, but think about you often and Grammy says prayers for you all, too!  God be with you all this coming year!

We Are Entering our Friend, Rudy’s, Contest…

Rudy, from “Rudy’s Life…as a Guide Dog in Training” is having a Holiday Giveaway/Contest! There will be prizes for Dogs AND for people! You can go HERE to read the complete blog about this…

Here is a summary of the Prizes, Contest and Rules by Rudy:
Instead of picking the winners at random... my raiser will be picking the 5+ best contest entries - then letting her family pick the 2 grand winners of my contest!

Giveaway One: Dog Fun Pack (pics on their blog)
The Dog Fun Pack will include a leopard squeaker "mat" dog toy (a stuffed toy with SIXTEEN squeakers in it!), a set of 3 puppy face squeaker dog toys, some store bought treats AND homemade dog treats straight from our kitchen (won't be made 'til right before the prize is sent out), and maybe some other surprises along the way!

Giveaway Two: Humans Only
The humans only prize includes a very cute cooking apron; my raiser does owns one - and would wear it to town if she could! This would be the perfect addition to your kitchen; and you could even cook your furry cute fella a dog treat or two! My raiser also may include some of her homemade Goat Milk Soap (which would be dog themed), but more on that later though.

Rules by my furry cool Raiser:
1. In order to be entered in 1 or both giveaways all you need to do is write a very short poem that is Christmas/Holiday & DOG (or pet) themed!

**Please note the poem can be AS SHORT or AS LONG as you want! It won't change you chance of winning!**

2. Once you write the poem (long or short) please either post it in a comment on THIS POST or email it to me at guidedogawareness AT yahoo DOT com (please make sure to include your blog address in the email) Rudy would still love for you to leave a comment on this post!

Please note in the comment you leave on this post (with your poem or without) what prize pack you'd like to win (either or both!). By writing a poem & entering it in this contest you can be entered into BOTH contest prizes - or you can choose to just be entered into one. But please note that in the comment!! (Whether you'd like to be entered in the Dog Lovers Pack, the Humans Only pack, or BOTH)

PLEASE pass this post along; publish the information on your blog & let all your blogging pals know! We want Rudy's first Holiday Giveaway to be a huge hit! Please be sure to read the rest of the rules, etc. on Rudy’s Blog!

The Contest started 12-1-2010 and will be ending on 12-15-2010.

That said, we got together with Grammy and came up with this little poem for our entry. See what you think…

A Country Corgi Christmas Feast
 By Linda Brock © 12-5-10

The Country Corgis got together
To plan their Christmas Feast
For as everyone knows,
Food is very important to these “solid” little beasts!

OC, the Matriarch of our country clan,
Suggested Jerky Treats or a few small “Piggy ear” hams,
While Mercy said there must be mashed potatoes,
And maybe some dried, chewy yams…

Gimli offered, “I’ve got some rawhide
That’s been buried, aged and mellowed…
It’s like stinky cheese,
That’s striped and turning yellow!”

“Carrots are a must,”
Drooled Pip, with a dreamy sigh
“And a horse hoof crust
on horse apple pie!”

BG quietly talked to Auntie Sadie a while…
And finally said, with a shy smile…
We’re providing an aged squirrel
To add to this, tasty pile!

Dott sat and quietly thought
About what she could possibly bring
And finally she brightened up
As she thought of the perfect thing!

As everyone joined their paws
‘Round the best corgi Feast you ever saw,
Dott thanked her Father God above,
For giving His Son, the sign of His Love!
