WOOF! ☺A contest where EVERYONE is a winner! How cool is that!☺ WOOF!

The dog blogging world has lost many of its beloved members over these past weeks. Some of our other members are fighting the good fight for their lives. A lot of sadness has traveled throughout the Universe with buckets, if not rivers, of tears shed in profuse sadness for love lost and love remembered. As we were traveling from blog to blog to offer our condolences, and to hopefully leave words of encouragement, something caught our eye on The Portuguese Water Blog. We made a note that we would come back to it and share the fun with all of our friends when the time was right. Today, we think the time is right and we hope that you do, too.

The Portuguese Water Blog is having it's Second Annual BANDANNA DAY to be held on June 10th over on their bloggy. Here is some information about how you can 'put your bandanna in the ring' as copied from their site:

Fudge and the others can't wait to see what you all decide to wear. We're looking forward to making lots of new friends again this year. Let's beat last year's record of 73. You can start sending your pictures anytime. I'll save them till the 10th.

Here are the 4 easy steps to play along:

1. Find something red to wear.
2. Have your person take your picture.
3. E-mail your picture to me at
Include your name, the state or country where you live, and your blog or website so we can link to you.
4. Check in on this blog on June 10 to see all the pictures.

We know that all well dressed dogs (and c*ts) have a bandanna somewhere in the house. If they don't then they need to grab their leash, tell their human being to grab the car keys and go shopping! The color this year is RED and - who doesn't love red or look pretty in red or look handsome in red!

Here's a sneak peek at our arsenal of bandannas but we're not going to show you the photo of our PURRsonal choices because we want you to be surprised on the 10th when those wacky, wild and crazy Portuguese Water Dogs post all of the photos!

So travel on over to The Portuguese Water Blog (Fudge is a cousin of First Dog Bo Obama) and read all about it! Then grab your momma or dadda's camera, put it in their lap, sit pretty and pose with your snazziest bandanna tied around your neck - or heck, loop it around your tail if that is what suits your fancy! Pick out your best photo and shoot it on over to the momma of those fun lovin' Portuguese Water Dogs!

Gotta run. We just found another bandanna we want our momma to iron! I'm tellin' ya, this modeling thing is gettin' to be kinda fun!

PeeEss: And, if that isn't enough activity to keep you busy this weekend, Miss Mayzie is having a 'guessing contest' over on her bloggie! WOWZA, a fun-filled weekend for all!

Have you gone to Mayzie's blog to get into her grrreat contest??? It is very much super!!

Lola said...

I'm so glad you explained this. I just found the Portugese Water Dog blog - probably from right here but I don't remember now. There were references to this and I wanted to join. I'm pretty sure I have some red bandanas, but I wasn't sure where to look for details. Now I'll go find something red and get ready for a photo shoot this weekend.

wags, Lola

Sue said...

Wow, you guys have a bunch of bandanas!!

Thanks for the great post about Bandana Day. We got some funny shots last year and we made a lot of new friends.

PS-- Fudge and Bo are cousins.

Jake of Florida said...

Not to give anything away --- but since we are baseball lunatics and our favorite team is those Redbirds from St. Louis, you can kind of guess what our bandanananans will look like!!!

We never win anything so it's fun to enter a contest with no winners. That's us!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry
