About Me

My photo
I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy. She will keep me for (about) 1 year, then I will head off to harness training! Please feel free to follow my blog and keep up with: Brandon's Life... As a guide dog in training

Did you hear?? (and mud puddle visit)

Photo taken at Toby's level - he is staring at the camera with glowing green eyes!
One of my pawesome friends is hosting an event, and in this event there will be GIVEAWAYS!!
Twinkie is one of my newer friends - she's a furry cute doggy and I'm glad to have met her :)
Twinkie has been planning a pawesome global animal event for us! So we can win cool prizes & meet new people!

The name for this event is G.A.B.E (Global Animal Blogging Event).

I don't know to much about this event; but my Raiser said something about "giveaways" so I had to post about it!

To learn lots more, visit Twinkie's page. (make sure to start at the bottom).

I'm told their are 2 categories for us bloggers -


Active being you do a giveaway.
To be Active take the GABE badge (from Twinkie's page) and place it in your sidebar (making sure to link it back to the Twinkie's page) before March 31. On or after March 31 post about your giveaway (making sure to send the link to Twinkie), the quicker you do the giveaway post the higher up you will be on Twinkie's list - so you may have more people viewing/entering your contest. April 18th the winner (s) will be picked.
(you can still enter other giveaways if you are active)

Passive being you only have to ENTER all those giveaways!!
(please note that I am just a dog - I may have gotten a fact/date wrong & of course left many things out - so if you are interested in this cool event please read Twinkie's page & if something is different, feel free to let me know - and of course follow what Twinkie says not me!)
We were planning on just being "passive" but my Raiser is thinking about letting me be an Active doggy (as a birthday gift!)- of course I will be leaving for IFT at the guide dog school before GABE ends, so Liberty or my Raiser (unless the new puppy is here) will announce the winner (s) on my blog :(
Unless something unexpected happens & we get really busy we (hopefully) will be active - so make sure to enter our giveaway when it comes time! My Raiser is thinking about her homemade goat milk soap as the prize... (her soap is very nice - so you guys will LOVE it - and they were quite popular at the slient auction at SEGDI'S Walk-A-thon!!)

So make sure to look into this event!

Guess what I did today??
My Raiser took me out back (a 2+ acre fenced in for goats/horses/) this fence just so happened to have been sitting empty for a couple months & my Raiser decided to let me play in it! (just now, what about the other 2 months??). What she DIDN'T NO - their just so "happened" to be a nice LARGE, MUD, PUDDLE in it...
Not wanting to get wet - I decided to jump OVER it - not realizing it was a "little" to long... yes, my Raiser watched me land in the MIDDLE of the puddle, straight in the mud! She laughed SOOO loud, til she realized that I now needed a shower:)
So that was my fun thing today :) (and no she didn't have her camera!)
P.S. My Raiser went shopping for birthday presents today...

Hope you enjoyed my long, informative but (hopefully) fun post!

Sounds like a pawesome contest. I'll have to check it out! That's a funny story about you jumping into the mud puddle- I'm sure Don would've loved to join you.

Lola said...

Toby, thanks for the information. I'll have to check that out. Also, I edited my post at my blog to tag you, too. I really thought you were too busy but if you can find time, I'd love to see you do it.

BOL now who needs the soap??? Toby does :) I think you did a better job explaining G.A.B.E. than I did. Want to take over? BOL
Seriously now, I think you've come up with a lovely giveaway idea. I'm going to make sure I leave you a comment in order to be eligible. But if I don't win your prize, maybe you can tell me where I can buy some. See? That's the beauty of these events, we get to meet one another better, find out more about each-other and meet more furiends.
