Dogs, dogs everywhere w/lots of faces to lick!

Hi Big People, PeeWee here. And I've got some new friends to introduce you to! But first...the winner of A DOG'S WAY HOME by Bobbie Pyron is....

Karla Nellenbach and her brother and sister pups, Samson and Nickels, who saved the bunny from the owls (it was an animal-filled story!)

Here they are:

Samson is one brave dog to take on a mess of owls!  Most owls are bigger than me, so I wouldn't even try--in fact, is Samson looking for a job?  Because I'm about the size of a bunny, and I need protection!

Read Samson's story and all of the rest in the comments here. There were some really great stories of rescue, daring and bravery.  All of these dog's and their owners would LOVE Tam in A DOG'S WAY HOME.  So even if you didn't win, I highly suggest you pick up a copy!  It hit the shelves last week.  You can buy it here, here, or here.  Go!

Now it's time to meet some of my other new friends!

This is Kaffi.  She was rescued by her owner at a rest stop while on vacation.  She was part chihuahua like me!  You can read her full story in the link above.  Her owner Kelley is a hero in my book!

This here is a surfing pup named )(urley! She can hang twenty, ride the waves, and she's also got a killer sleepy face (see below).  I can swim, but I've never tried surfing!

On Wed we'll meet Cody, Kal, Sera and Bolt!  So stay tuned for more doggie pics.
And just because we love the book so darn much, we'll announce a new winner of A DOG'S WAY HOME on Wednesday!  That's right--two winners.  We chihuahuas can be very giving.

Yay! Congrats to the winner! Also exciting to see Kaffi's pics up there. Thanks, PeeWee!

(That surfing pup is WAY too adorable.)

Congrats Karla!!!

And oh my gosh, I love that surfing pup. So cute!!!

Karla Nellenbach said...

I won? Yay!

Sadly, Samson is one lazy dog. I've suggested many, many, many times that he get off the couch and look for work, considering his big butt costs a whole lot to feed, but he's too spoiled to do anything that I suggest. although if he gets a spurt of owl chasing energy, I will definitely send him up to you all ;)

thanks for having such a fantastic contest! can't wait to read this book :)

Congrats to the winners!

Fun contest! I recognized Karla's dogs before I read her name--just like in the neighborhood, I know the neighbors as "Isaboo's Mom" or "Bodie's Dad". Their dogs' names instead of the people's names.

Congrats Karla! That was a great story. Owls are evil. I know this because my 8-year-old won't read anything but Guardians of Ga'hoole, even though I have tons of other books I want him to read.

Cute dogs! Thanks for sharing.

They are all so cute! I could squeeze and hug them ALL!

Bobbie Pyron said...

Hey! A HUGE thanks to all who sent in their wonderful dog stories and photos! I laughed, I cried (well, got teary-eyed) reading them. You're ALL winners in my book and in your four-footed friend's eyes!

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
