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

Name Game (WITH A PRIZE!)

Think you have what it takes to pick my new puppy's name??

You have FIVE chances to guess my dogs name.
Try to pick 5 that will match a cute MALE black goldador.

They can be any random name - just note that people are paying $3500 to name a puppy... so each name has a lot of thought & meaning.

To enter:
1). Leave ONE comment on this post - with the 5 names that you chose
2). You have from NOW until midnight on Saturday to leave that comment... so get commenting!
It is THAT easy!

I will be publishing comments when I receive them (feel free to check back to make sure your comment gets published - as blogger likes to "eat" some).

I have decided to publish the comments when I get them, so (if you want) you can look over the names other bloggers' picked - so you don't choose the same ones (more of a chance that someone wins).
(Yes you may use the same name as another blogger - if you want)

IF a blogger happens to have picked the right dog name they will be receiving a prize... !
You will win 1 bar of my dog bone homemade goat milk soap! (picture below).
If more than 1 blogger picked the right name - I will do a drawing to pick the 1 winner.

Have any questions? Feel free to pop me an email at: guidedogawarenessATyahooDOTcom.

I will be posting reminders - just in case you decide not to enter right away.

Remember: 1 comment with FIVE guesses (or less), you may also add a reason of why you picked certain names or a meaning to go with them (if you'd like).

Ready... START NAMING!

(Please note that I DO NOT know my dogs name yet - and most likely won't find out until Saturday/Sunday)
