The Big 800 and a Giveaway to Celebrate!


As I was about to write to you this morning I noticed that this was my eight hundredth post!

On January 18th, 2010, only six people read my first post and I was discouraged but as I continued to share my pet sitting adventures along with stories about my pets (Henry, Buster, and Daisy) I amazingly gained more and more readers who have made my life whole for three and a half years. 

I don't have as much time to comment on your posts as often as I'd like due to time constraints but I do read them! Lately I've found that it is much easier to comment frequently on your Facebook pages because I am obsessive about checking it (who isn't?).


So to celebrate the number 800 I am going to give everyone a chance to win a copy of  Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat  to honor Homer's life that sadly came to a close last Wednesday at 16 due to health complications. You can read all about Homer on his Facebook page here. I've read this book myself and loved it and I'm sure you'd agree!  

How do you win this book, you ask? Just leave a short congratulations-type comment here, on my pet sitting Facebook page, or via e-mail if you follow  me via RSS. 

I will put all of your names in a bowl(perhaps a fish bowl?) and announce the winner on Saturday, August 31, at 9:00 a.m.! So sorry but this contest is for US readers only!

Let the games begin!

    1. I liked the Silly Saturday contest too but it got expensive and I got scatterbrained. LOL. I'm hoping to start it back up soon though, Sarge! You were one of the funniest contestants!
