GABE Winner!!!

It's the big day - we are picking our GABE winner! Today marks the grand finale of this great event, sponsored by our friend Twinkie! We met so many new friends, and the prizes are just the icing on the cake! Thanks to all our GABE entrants (we had 50). For those of you with highspeed connections, this video says it all!!

Don't want anyone to be left hanging, so in case you aren't able to enjoy the live video of Brutus choosing our winner, here's a photo blow-by-blow of how he did it!

I wrote the names of all 50 entrants on identical pieces of paper, and folded them all the same way. To be as random & unbiased as possible, I asked Brutus to do the honors (don't let him know I told you, but he can't read...)

Brutus immediately set about the task with his usual vigor:

Let's see... So many papers to choose from, all so tasty!

My peepers are closed, I promise - no peeking! Besides if I did, I might get a papercut on my eye!

And within a few minutes (and some attempts to eat the box), Brutus picked a winner!

Who is it Brutus? The suspense is killing us...

Hooray! It's the wee Scottie lass, Bonnie!

Congratulations, Bonnie! I bet you and your human are going to look great in your new shirts from CafePress!! Maybe not as glamorous as you are in your dress, but hey - everyone needs casual clothes too!

You don't have to get matching shirts like Brutus and I did, but is sure is fun (and I bet you could get "Team Scottie!").

Congrats again Bonnie, we can't wait to see what you choose! I'll contact you via email to give you the instructions on how to claim your fabulous prize!! There are so many things to pick from at CafePress, I'm sure you'll find something really fun!

Even if you didn't win, make sure to still check out all the cool stuff at CafePress. They have something for everyone, and even if you can't find something, you can custom-make you own unique item! While you're there, be sure to visit the Flat Brutus World Tour shop (shameless plug, sorry), all proceeds of which go directly to FBRN!!

Thanks again to Twinkie for organizing this one-of-a-kind event! We appreciate all your hard work! The best prizes of all are all the new friends we've made!

Hi Brutus! I hope you enjoyed playing with your yo yo poop and yes, you should definitely ask mommy to put some more mirrors out.

Flat Brutus Project sounds like something my crazy mom would do.

Wow, you look so shiney! What do you use? Pet Plus with dandruff control or do you eat a raw food diet?
