Woofing Out Our
Weekly Grab Bag Giveaway

Weekly Surprise Grab Bag
Treats and a Toy for Your Best Friend
The warehouse is getting overstocked AGAIN. Odds and ends of dog toys and dog treats seems to have piled up. Finally last night I had an AHA moment. I have a big box of giveaway entries, the names on which all mean something to me. A promise. I promised each and every one of those people that entered my giveaways that their turn would come--someday.

Now, with extreme and unexpected growth, I find myself in need of using a more mechanized method for handling prize entries. The names written on slips of paper and drawn by hand each week simply isn't an option for me any longer. Yet the promise still lingers.

And so does the AHA! Here's what I plan to do with "The Box". Each week, for a limited time, I will select a toy and a treat or chewie for one winner. We'll call this the Weekly Surprise Grab Bag. When you receive one, you'll be surprised because you won't know what's inside. Hopefully Fido will enjoy the surprise too. What's not to like about treats and a toy, right?

So, there's no entry required. These prizes will go to readers who entered giveaways prior to June 23, 2011. Each toy and treat selected will be suitable for most any dog--Chihuahuas to Great Danes. Although the treats may occasionally specify "for seniors" or "for puppies", your Fido will still be able to enjoy the yummies, even if in smaller nibbles to control calories. Feel free to pass the grab bag along to a local rescue if you win and choose not to keep your prize. 

The weekly Surprise Grab Bag Drawing will be done on Fido's Freebie Friday each week, until it ends. I will draw a name and announce it in the post, so be sure to check in each week to see if you may have won from previous entries. I'll begin this week, so mark your calendars!

If I am unable to contact or hear back from the announced winner by next week's Fido's Freebie Friday event, a new winner will be drawn. So don't let any grass grow under your feet. Be sure to get in touch at and let me know you won the grab bag. 

I'll need your address, and if you share your pup's size and age, I'll do what I can to assure the prize is suitable for your best friend. I'm looking forward to sharing some great goodies with my readers' dogs. Don't miss it!

Occasionally, I may substitute a "Dog Lover Surprise Grab Bag." Any comments on that idea? Hope to see you Friday when the "shopping mall of freebies" is busy adding to its inventory. Have a great week!

Awesome! I don't think any of us would object to winning a cool mystery prize, and on the off chance it ends up a treat or toy my dog can't have, I know for a fact our local HS would love to get some more donations!

Thanks for such great info! I would want to know more regarding dogs chews. I do love pet doggies and I think it is great to have an adoption for dogs.
