Rudy's FIRST Giveaway!

That's right, Rudy's GIVEAWAY is here!!
I've put it off long enough.... It's Time for:
MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!

Remember the products I reviewed a couple weeks back?
My Raiser ordered the totally cute "mini" polka dot bag for me... AND ordered 1 extra one for me to do a giveaway with :)

I've been soo busy I've not had anytime to do the giveaway, but things have settled down a "little" and she gave me the "okay" to do the giveaway!

I'm so excited, as this is my FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY!

My Raiser said I could do it however I wanted, so here are the furry good rules to the giveaway:
1. Leave a comment on THIS post and you'll be entered in the giveaway
(Please make sure you leave a email address in a comment - or have it available on your blog)

2. (if wanted) try and earn a couple extra entries by doing one of my "bonus entries"

3. Watch my blog to find out if you win!
Since I want to give you guys more than 1 chance to win - feel free to do 1+
BONUS ENTRIES!
1. Follow My blog (1 extra entry) - you can be a new follower or an old follower
2. Put Toby's "pawprint award" (picture below) on your blog - and link it back to our blog (2 extra entries)
3. Leave 3 comments on 3 other posts that you haven't already visited/commented on (2 extra entries)
4. Blog about my furry cool giveaway (5 extra entries)
(please note for each extra entry you need to leave a separate comment - otherwise it won't count. So if you put Toby's "pawprint award" on your blog you leave TWO comments not one).

So just leave a comment on THIS post if you want to win... and do a couple extra bonus entries if you want a better chance of winning!
Any Questions? Feel free to email me! (guidedogawareness AT yahoo DOT com)

**This Giveaway ENDS on July 4th at midnight**
(note: Their will be a delay in shipping - as we have another farm camp right after July 4th)
Thanks and good luck!

Rudy, a giveaway from one so young? You are growing up fast. I can tell you Blog Mom likes that bag. She likes it so much that if she doesn't win she just may buy one of them. It looks furry useful. Anyhoo...I am a follower as you know. We'll reread the rest of the rules when one of us is not quite so bleary eyed. The one who reads English, I mean.

wags, Lola
