And now…with no further woofing and carrying on,
our Grand Prize Winner is:


Those who know Mel won’t be a bit surprised that when she heard she had won, her first though was OMG! and her second was to ask if she could donate some of the prizes. An active member of the rescue community, many dogs have benefitted from Mel’s generosity and we are so glad to be a part of that. We’re excited to see what prizes she keeps for her pups to enjoy and which rescues will benefit from her kindness!
Thank you so much to everyone who entered and to my fabulous co-hosts, Rescued Insanity, Woof Woof Mama, I Still Want More Puppies and PupLove
All of our winners will be contacting by e-mail no later than Sunday, Jan. 6th with instructions on how to claim your prize!
Even if you weren’t on of our prize winners (this time), I do hope that you’ll stick around. We’ve got BIG PLANS and all sorts of fun things planned for 2013! You never know what kind of mischief we’ll get up to next!
