Winning Gets Simpler and Simpler!
This Black Friday giveaway was an interesting experiment in which I offered prizes to winners for simply subscribing to All Things Dog Blog. To win the surprise gifts, I asked readers to Tweet the message below. During this very short Tweet session (only 3 days) I was thrilled to get a pile of new subscribers. Yay!

Today I plugged my total number of email subscribers into Random.org and came up with these two winners: Arabella and Elka. I've left out their internet service providers and portions of their email addresses for privacy, but will notify them today and offer a prize selection for each winner to choose from for their particular pup, or perhaps themselves.
Would you like to get in on this action? I plan to run this sort of giveaway again, and each time it will be a surprise. Prizes will be valued at no less than $20. Each prize package will vary, but you will always be offered a prize suitable to your dog's size and sex. No frilly dresses for your Great Dane or large, heavy balls for your Chihuahua.
So, what do you have to do to win? Let's see how many of you actually got the point, and give you a chance to win AGAIN on December 14. Leave me a comment below (one per reader, please) telling me what you need to do to enter, and I'll do a repeat drawing for one lucky winner. This one will grab 16 pounds of Castor and Pollux Natural Ultramix.
IN ADDITION, I'll also draw one winner from new subscribers starting today, November 27. Keep in mind that your subscription must be activated by returning to your email box and clicking the link inside your confirmation email from Feedburner. Only active subscriptions will qualify for this prize, 16 lbs. of Castor and Pollux Organix. Thanks again for participating and enjoy the ride. Ready, set, go!
