Dogs On Thursday Snuggle Drawing

"To err is human:To forgive, canine." ~Anonymous

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to this weeks edition of Dogs on Thursday!
Again, we have quite a short post as there is no new members to announce and no Doggie Spotlight to post (hint, hint to those I talked to about spotlighting their dog.) and I am also sorry that I am late posting today.
I misplaced my brain a while ago and decided to go back to school.
My family tells me it is a midlife crisis, but Elise is supportive as long as I am home in time for her walk and give her lots of treats and cuddles.
Well the registration for summer classes was this morning and now that is why I am late today.
My 21 year old son who is also a math major, is already having a great tease that he gets to tutor his old mom in algebra.
(I think I may need the extra treats and cuddles by the time these classes are over!)
Anyway I also want to remind everyone that I will be leaving for vacation in 10 days.
We are going to Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England for 3 weeks.
It is such a dream vacation for me and I am very excited and quite nervous at the same time, but mostly I will miss my dear Elise while we are away. I have never been away from her for that long.
But, I know she will be quite spoiled and living in the the lap of luxury in my sisters care until we return.
Sooo, now that I have taken up the first half of Dogs on Thursday rambling about myself.

I will move on to some fun and excitement with the DOT Snuggle Project Drawing!
The DoT Snuggle Project ended April 30th and those that participated will be sending or have already sent their snuggles to their favorite Dog Charity.
The DoT Snuggle Blog with it wonderful snuggles can be seen Here.
So go check it out!

I wrote everyone's name down on a piece of paper that participated in the project, folded it 6 times for luck (did you know that it is impossible to fold a piece of paper more than 6 times?) and I put all the pieces of paper a 'special vessel'. (an old clay vase that I got my hand stuck in.)
Mixed up the contents well and drew out a name.

That name is.....(drum roll please)....Mary!

Mary won this fabulous collection to her crochet/knitting corner and a months supply of healthful dog snacks!

Congratulations Mary!

Also...,don't forget to visit Nichole's blog for her wrap up to her contest, Mindy's blog for info on ordering the dog charm bracelets and Natalie's blog to listen to her BarknKnit Podcast and check out pictures of her awesome trip to Washington D.C.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and will be outside with their furbabies enjoying this beautiful weather.
Stay tuned as in June we will announce a new summertime contest and a Dog Days Of Summer DoT Swap.

Congrats Mary!
What a DREAM vacation that is... can't wait to hear all about it when you get back. Have a fabulous time! I'm sure you'll bring Elsie some great treats from abroad...we'll be headed to Charlotte in a couple weeks and sure to stop at the doggy bakery there to bring home goodies for the kids!

Thanks for reminding me about registration for summer classes. I need to go see what our community college is offering this time.

Your trip sounds wonderful and you're lucky to have family to take care of Elise.
