GABE and Date Night

Global Animal Blogging Event 2010
(Click on the badge to be taken to the GABE webpage)
GABE was designed to bring animal bloggers across the globe together by Twinkie.
Thank you so much Twinkie (and Mom) for all your hard work putting this together.

If this is your first time here, WELCOME!
I'm glad you're visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay.

 I couldn't decide what I wanted to give away for GABE but I knew I wanted to pawticipate.
I was contacted recently by CafePress and they wanted to sponsor a giveaway right here on my blog.
Can you believe it? Could there be better timing?
So, the giveaway includes 2 t-shirts, one for you and one for your human. Mom and I got to pick out a pair too.
This is what we picked:
Dachshund Stripe Dog T'sDachshund Dad Dark T-Shirt
How cute will Dad and I be wearing these?
Shhhh.....he doesn't know yet. 
I would like to thank CafePress for sponsoring this giveaway. Mom and I were very impressed with the selection they have available.....including every dog breed I know of. You can find tons of personalized gifts at CafePress and they have all kinds of things besides t-shirts. You can even get your picture on all kinds of things! Please take a minute and check them out. I would appreciate it! 
If you would like to enter this giveaway, please leave a comment on this post and a way for me to contact you in case you win. You only get one entry and on the 18th I will draw a name and tell you who wins! Easy, huh?
Good luck to all the entrants! 
Thanks again Twinkie for organizing this event! What a wonderful way to meet others who are as crazy as my Mom....you know, having a blog for a dog! 

Now, some info on Date Night.
I have had several of you say that you don't know if you can get a date. You don't have to have a date in order to attend. I've also heard a few of you mention you are really busy and might not have time. That is not a good excuse either.....YOU don't have to do anything except let me know you want to go and who your date is (if you have one). I make Mom do all the rest! One other thing I've heard is concern over if the object of your desire is not available....For one, you don't know till you ask and two, there are a lot of dogs and cats in the treat jar so ask and if you get turned down, ask somepup or somecat else. DUH!
We will be putting up more info this week and leave a post for you to let me know if you will be attending. 
One more thing....here's a photo of me in case you forgot what I look like. I've been doing a lot of "business" on the blog lately and haven't been showing you my beauty....
Sorry about that ;o)

Hi, Twix...

I keep telling My Mom I want to join the GABE event & she is just so busy with Spring Yard Work & Easter Dinner & the New Grand Baby that she has not even figured it all out...I'll ask her to look into it again tonite if it isn't too late...

I think I know who I'm gonna ask for Date Nite...I'm kind of nervous cuz I've never asked a pup out before, but he is soooo sweet...I hope he will say Yes...

Santa and Minnie said...

Hi Twix, we came over from GABE. Nice to meet you! We like your giveaway. Hope to win!

Glad that we came by or else we would have missed your Date Night. Looks like it's going to be fun. So this is what's going around, somebody's asking somebody to be his date...haha...But so far, nobody has asked us yet *ahem*. We are three pretty gals, besides Beckham, our big brother. Anybody wants to be our dates?

ocmist said...

Great giveaway, Twix! We have a CafePress Shop ourselves, as I guess you saw when you visited our GABE post. We can design for our friends if they like, too! We LOVE CafePress!

Mama Dott says that we pups are to young to date yet, but Uncle BG might want to. We will check it out further. The Country Corgi Crew
