After writing about my recent sad and happy experiences with our kitties, so many of you wrote to me with your own stories of your loving pets. Thank you for that!
It was so nice and heartwarming to hear about all the love we have for our beloved animals, that I want to finagle some more pet stories and memories out of you guys! And what better way to do that than with a bribe! A give away bribe to be more specific!
Leave a comment telling me a story or memory about your pet(s), current or remembered. They can be funny, heartfelt or surprising. And it doesn't have to be just about cats or dogs. There are all sorts of pets and I personally have been lucky enough to have made many animal friends of all shaped and sizes over the years.
I'll start off with my own memories of the pet cows I had as a kid. Sequin was a beautiful mostly black girl that won all the ribbons at the fair and had a snotty personality to match. Jaxx was a big fatty with a heart of gold. She was so wide she could hardly fit through the milking parlor doors! Sequin would see me from a distance in the barn or pasture and would look for a second, then turn the other way. Jaxx would see me and come running over to be scratched and patted. Jaxx loved apples and carrots, which I always gave to her on her birthday. Sequin liked to run away from me during walks and roll around on any hill or sand pile that happened to be nearby...a scary thing to watch, as their stomachs can get twisted that way! They were so opposite in personality, but they were my babies and I still smile when I think of them. :)
Ok, now your turn! I'll randomly pick a winner in one week, the evening of Thursday, July 29th. I will announce the winner here and they'll get to choose between the spun cotton dog or cat. Also, I'd love to have a chance to write back to you guys individually when you leave comments. If you'd like for me to write back, just include your email address in the comment. :)
