Surprise Doggie Grab Bag 
Who doesn't love a surprise gift? A toy and some treats tucked into a surprise bag is the perfect way to put a wag in your dog's tail. What's more...there's no entry required and the winner has already been selected. The winners of the Grab Bag Surprises are drawn from earlier entries that did not win a prize.


Back in the dark ages, before I started using electronic winner selection via Random.org, I had a manual method. It worked something like this: Copy each entry name onto a slip of paper. Hand draw a winner for each giveaway. Repeat each week.

As you can imagine, after a while the leftovers got pretty overwhelming, so I finally decided to upgrade to the 21st century. Now each giveaway is drawn from entries to that particular post by a computer program at Random.org that selects a winning number from entries at random. 


But what of the leftovers? Well, long ago I had promised readers that if they entered, one day they would get to win something. So this is how I intend to keep that promise. All those leftover entries from the dark ages are now being drawn from for Grab Bag Surprises. This week's winner is Five Sives Mom. I'm guessing she'll have no problem putting this grab bag to work. Send your address to me at AllThingsDogBlog@gmail.com so we can get your Grab Bag Surprise to you pronto.


Watch the blog each week for Grab Bag Surprises. Maybe you'll be lucky and get one next week. Thanks for reading and happy tails!
