Competitions

I was reading a magazine the other day and noticed a lot of competitions and it has me thinking, i never hear much about people winning prizes from them. I don't enter them much myself as i'm a bit sceptical, i have tried a few before but dont really bother.
So i was curious if any of you have won any prizes from these competitions in magazines,tv,internet or anywhere really? and what you won.

I used to enter a lot of the giveaways in the monthly dog magazines. One year at Christmas and New Year time I won about 12 different prizes! The dogs were so happy everytime the postman came and there was another present for them. The funny thing was my husband was getting a wee bit jealous and said that it was about time I won a prize for him so I entered a competition to win a hamper and guess what! We won!!

(the strange thing was I remember Jamie praying over the envelope for the hamper competition but he was very sweet and prayed that if there was someone else more deserving who needed it more than us they would win it! He is funny sometimes!)


About 25 years ago my Cairn Terrier Rusty won "Dog of the year" in our local newspaper. He won 288 tins of dog food. The funny thing was he didn't eat dog food as we fed him on chicken at the time as he was quite fussy. Let's just say he ate dog food after that!

They took some lovely professional photos of him and put in the paper. I remember one was of him fetching the newspaper from the letterbox and the photographer had thought it a good idea to bring lots of toilet paper and recreate the Andrex advert and out entire large front garden was strewn with toilet tissue.

I also won a pink dog-carrier suitable for a small dog and Jamie was trying to put poor Parker into it!! We gave it to my Sister for her Bichon Frise though I guess if it had been larger Parker would have enjoyed being carried around as he's quite lazy. Wouldn't have done much for my neck injury though carrying 15kg of dog around!
