Paxton Pleads for a Prize!
I'm really proud of you guys this week. You brought out the big guns! As of this writing to prepare for the winners' announcement we have over a hundred entries for the 3 Mini Nesting Mats from Petstages. I am relatively sure Petstages is quite happy about that. Thanks!

Oliver thoroughly enjoyed reviewing this cozy, snuggly bedding and has decided it is definitely the place to hunker down when we have our afternoon thunderstorms here in Central Florida. BTW, did you see his slideshow over at 5 Minutes for Fido? He and Tanner have their own blog where they enjoy being silly. But this wasn't bad. Let's show it off here:

This adorable mat is made with a cushiony center and four flaps that all are different colors made in deliciously soft fabrics. They certainly appeal to my sense of enjoyment of color. Both times that Oliver has been "on camera" with the mat, he seemed to be clueless that i was taking photos and just set his sights on checking out all the layers and figuring out what was under each one. I think he would call it the 'mystery toy'.

It All Started Like This

I particularly loved the shot when he got himself all wrapped up inside the layers. He had no idea this was coming! I got a great laugh at his expense. First he got underneath the whole blanket, and then when he realized he was covered, he began to spin around. The next thing you know, he looked like this:

Swaddled Oliver

If you're wondering whether Oliver disliked this swaddling, think no more. He actually seemed to enjoy the feeling and we've found him looking much like this on several mornings after loud thunderstorms. I think Petstages may be onto something here.

I suppose it's time to announce the winners. Three of the 113 entries we got at our Mini Nesting Mat Review get to have one delivered to their door. The competition was fierce, diligent and hard-working. Bravo for Petstages lovers!
