Y’all, tomorrow we’ll be talking about the Pug wedding, Pugs for Pinky, with Rose and Kismet, but today we’re having a giveaway. Because I love you. So today we’ll talk a little bit about the Dog Writer’s Association of America – did you KNOW there was such a thing?!? Why didn’t you TELL me?! – and the fun swag bag, including two gorgeous Frisbees for dogs. Seriously.
Carol Bryant, Dexter’s mom and the author at Fidose of Reality, invited me to the DWAA Banquet the Sunday night before Westminster, since I was going to be in New York City. And since the banquet was held in my hotel. Carol was nominated for an award for her blog, and given what seem to be millions of dog blogs out in the interwebs, this was a huge honor. I was happy to attend and humbled that she thought to invite me.
I made new friends. Isn’t that the best thing about traveling? About events away from home? Jen Reeder is from Colorado and won a Maxwell award. She’s adorable, y’all, and I can’t wait to read her work.
But what exactly is the Dog Writer’s Association of America? Here’s what they say about themselves:
Dog Writers Association of America encompasses all aspects of the world of dogs ~ showing, performance, behavior, training, health, and the human animal bond. We recognize many kinds of media besides journalism. Artists and photographers have joined our ranks and we include mystery and fiction writers, poets, historians and veterinarians. We have members who host national radio shows and others who appear on TV programs. Blogging, website production, social networking, and videography are among the professional activities of other members.
How cool is THAT?! I know, I know – I’m the hyperbole queen today, but I can’t stress enough how exciting it was to 1) be in New York City, 2) attend the DWAA Maxwell awards banquet, 3) make new dog friends.
In addition, I was fortunate enough to be able to hang out with the handsome Dexter, spokesdog for Fidose of Reality, as well as his other mom, Darlene Bryant. Y’all, it was a fabulous time.
Now! The Frisbee giveaway! This dog Frisbee is blue and yellow for a reason. The second Frisbee is blue and white. According to Wham-O, dogs’ visible color spectrum is blue, white and yellow. The Frisbee is also textured and molded for ease of grip and comfort in a medium to large dog’s mouth. It looks like the perfect catching disk for a dog. And I’m giving them both away! To be the winner:
- Leave a comment before midnight this Friday, February 27th

I’ll announce the winner next Monday. I always use the random number generator page to choose the winners of giveaways.

Until I write again …
