No, not a new puppy brother or sister!
It all started back in May when Dad saw an announcement about a Purina photo contest and encouraged Mom to enter. There were six categories and we entered each of them. Six Grand Prize winners were to be awarded, along with six First Place prize winners.
Last Thursday, we got a special FEDEX delivery containing a letter and documents indicating we were one of six potential Grand Prize winners pending the return of a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Release form as well as a Copyright Assignment form!!
Mom took care of this right away because it was due back to them today. They included a prepaid overnight return envelope. Well, she got the call today saying all paperwork was in order and to make arrangements to have the check delivered because she has to sign for it! It's coming this week!
The check is for $5,000 made payable to Mom/us!
The picture that won is the 10th picture on my page with my brother Riley. It was entered in the Pair Entries category and the Best Sense of Humor sub-category! Winners were selected by a hired independent judge---my new best friend!
Can you believe it????
I didn't want to tell you before all the forms were received and they made it official!
Mom is already planning on how to spend the money on us, but is still trying to figure out what to buy me. She won't spend all of it right away though.
Here is the link to the Purina contest page but the announcement of the winners won't show up until around July 12! I'll be sure to let you know when it's there!
