Today is Beryl’s 6th birthday and she is giving away a present as well as having received some! You will probably remember earlier in the year when many pet blogs were doing reviews on Mr Chewy products and services?
Here’s a link to one at Peggy’s Pet Place for anyone who doesn’t know what I’m referring to:) They offered me the opportunity to give away a $25 credit at their business months ago and I was going to do it for my 2 year blogiversary in July, but I was probably busy stripping wallpaper that day and it didn’t happen! Normally I wouldn’t give away something I can’t personally recommend, and as Mr Chewy only delivers in the US I obviously can’t vouch for their services. But as I never saw a less than favourable review about them I’m quietly confident that whoever gets the $25 credit won’t be disappointed:)
What do you have to do for a chance to get the credit? Just comment by Monday night and wish Beryl a Happy Birthday:) Beryl is hopefully going to choose the winning commenter, as I’m going to write the names of all US residents who comment onto bits of paper, scatter them on the floor and the first one she decides to rip up will be the chosen one:) If that turns out to be an exercise in futility I’ll put the names into one of the random chooser sites! Winner to be announced on Wednesday the 12th. Good luck everyone:)
Disclaimer Beryl and I receive nothing from Mr Chewy except the pleasure of giving something away, and that’s always a nice thing to be able to do:)
So what did Beryl get for her birthday? Well, Frankie and I gave her a stunning new collar that I won on a Facebook auction to help the Spanish Galgos, who are treated horrifically by their hunter owners. But this is a happy post so we won’t go down that path!
The other day she received a present from the UK! It was from her sweetheart, Deccy, and she had a lot of fun opening it this morning:)
By this time I’d put Beryl’s new collar on her with her lovely tassel but they didn’t go quite right together. Fear not, I knew Beryl had the perfect collar ….
And no, Beryl, we are not going to start collecting tassels! Or are we, time will tell:) Big hugs and thank yous to Deccy, and his Mums for helping him to choose a perfect tassel and make Beryl’s special card xxx
Of course, I had to make Beryl a cake. I couldn’t find the recipe for the Bacon and Cheese cake I made for Frankie’s birthday so I hunted the internet and settled on a Peanut Butter and Carrot cake, except I didn’t have any carrots so I grated in some cheese instead. Then I decided I’d make muffins instead of a cake, don’t ask me why, I have no idea!
What did Frankie think of Beryl’s muffins? Well, he doesn’t like Peanut Butter so I wasn’t sure if he’d like the muffins. I thought they tasted OK, lol, yes I had a taste. It’s all human ingredients.
You may have noticed Beryl’s ‘Princess’ bowl? While that wasn’t a birthday present it was a present from Stanley’s family:) They went to the UK to visit relatives in July and saw that bowl in a shop and just HAD to buy it and bring it back to New Zealand for Beryl:) How cool is that? You may also have noticed that Beryl eats her meals off a beer crate? Well, she’s not a snob you know. Even though she prefers champagne. I do have intentions of prettying it up with some nice fabric and maybe some Swarovski crystals some day:) Just kidding;)
It’s time to take off the flash clobber and get into an everyday collar and go for a birthday walk … even though it has rained:( Have a great weekend everyone, and don’t forget to say Happy Birthday to Beryl for a chance to win a $25 credit at Mr Chewy!
