Global Animal Blogging Event - It's Time to Start!!

It's Tiiimmmmmmmmeeeeeeee!!

So  today is the very first day leading to GABE, or the 1st Annual Global Animal Blogging Event.
What a wonderful idea our friend Twinkie came up with to help bring all us animals that blog together and help us get to know each other better. 

For those of you visiting for the first time, my name is Dory and I am a 6 year old Lhasa mix doggie. I live with my hooman Mama and Daddy. I am an avid squirrel hunter and the Queen and Ruler of my backyard.I love having fun chasing squirrels and snuggling with Mama and Daddy.

This is my silly brother Bilbo who is a 8 year old Lhasa (he sometimes acts like a kitty cat!). Bilbo is Mama and Daddy's manager and personal herder. I think he someday might want to rule the world....but he hasn't mentioned anything about that to me.We get along most of the time as long as he doesn't try to boss me around.


Enough about us..this is about CELEBRATING FRIENDS!!!
To celebrate both old friends AND hopefully some new friends we are having a GIVEAWAY!!!!

Here are the rules for the GIVEAWAY!!!
1. Leave a Comment on this GABE blog entry between now and 11:59pm CST on April 17th

That's it...that is the ONLY rule (I hate rules)!! On April 18th we will pick the winners, we will announce them on this blog entry (but will also announce them on our April 18th blog entry!)

Mama will use the randomness that is Daddy and he will pick three winners out of our doggie bowl (don't worry, I will make Mama wash it first!) and they will get PRIZE BASKETS!!!

"What kind of baskets? What will be in them?" you might ask.
First, and most important, we will donate $10 in the name of each winner (a total of $30) to Lifelong Friends Shelter and send you a copy of the card that we will be mailing
Mama will be making PRIZE BASKETS!!! These will contain all kinds of fun goodies that Bilbo and I will snoopervise help her make!

Mama will be posting pictures of the making of the stuff in the baskets between now and the big drawing! 

More information about GABE can be found here at Twinkie's!

What a neat post and what a neat idea! Our weiner dog is sadly reluctant to do any blogging...it cuts to much into his napping/scrounging for food time. But I'm going to send this link to my daughter.

We like to chase the squirrels too - when we get the chance. Most of the time we can only look out the window and bark at them.

GABE is such a great idea. We are finding so many new wonderful blogs.

Hi Dory - it's nice to meet you and Bilbo. I like how you have a bird sanctuary in your backyard. My doggies ate the birdfeeder so I don't get to see the birds in my yard very often anymore.
