Clean + Green WINNERS!!!

I hope the suspense hasn't been killing you all!  We did the drawing for our CLEAN + GREEN product giveaway on Friday as promised.  Sorry for the delay in posting, as we are getting ready for our next Earlventure & didn't have time to post until now.  In case you didn't see our post announcing the giveaway, the makers of CLEAN + GREEN had let us try out their product, and also gave us some extra cleaners to give away to our readers.

We had about 30 entries (including a handful from those who follow us via Facebook) who commented on our giveaway post.  Since Carmen got to do the original post, I figured it was only fair to let her do the honors of picking a winner.  So I wrote the names of all our entries on pieces of paper & folded them up (not like Carmen can ready them, but still...)

Then I put the box down on the floor and let Carmen go to work, Mason and Brutus waiting expectantly to see who she would pick.

Come on, sis - get on with it!  We can't eat the rest of the names until you pick one!
I'm just a baby, not sure I can handle all this pressure, mom!
For those of you with a high enough bandwidth, I captured the moment on video!

And so that we all know what the outcome was, I'll continue with still photo shots showing our lucky winners
Decisions, decisions.  They all look so tasty, how can I pick just one?
So who is it, Carmen???
How would I know mom??  I can't read yet!

Oh, look!  Carmen picked some fellow frogs - our Frenchie pals Benny & Lilly from the Doggy Days blog!! 

They are such a lovely duo, don't you think?  Even if they made like 39,564 stains, how could you ever get upset with those sweet faces??

OK, everyone knows.  Can I eat it now??
Nom, nom, nom.  Benny & Lilly sure do have good taste - or should I say they taste good!
I SWEAR it was an impartial drawing.  You all know how smart Carmen is and all, but I really don't think she can read yet.  We're just happy to get to send some products to our first furiends (and some of the very few blogging Frenchies for that matter).  Not that we think you guys are messy or anything...  But you put two Frenchies together, and there are bound to be messes (trust me on this one, everybody!).  I'll email our lucky winners so that we can get the products to you ASAP (but don't be too disappointed when you can't eat it...)

Thanks to everyone who played along, and to CLEAN + GREEN for their generosity.  My husband has a saying that "Every stain has a story".  I think Carmen has written a novel with all her stories, how about you all??

Congratulations to Benny and Lilly! Mom has a saying something to the effect of "2 dogs equals 4 times the mess". I have No Idea what she's talking about. Unless Abby makes 3 times the mess of a normal doggie such as myself.... Hey... I'm still running my new tagline contest (Abby won a new tag, and since I haven't exactly grown into 'Dogzilla' Mom thinks I should get a new tag, and I'm looking for suggestions...), so if you've got any great ideas, please let me know - there's a donation to the winner's charity of choice....

Hooray for Benny & Lily & for little Carmen doing such a great job.

Most of our stains have the story of "Oskars Muddy Paws!"

Oh my goodness! We won. We are running 90 mph screaming telling every buddy we are green. The suspense was killing us! Carmen thank you so much for picking our name, our bribe (not really) worked. The treats are in the mail.
