Funtainer Giveaway

Happy Monday everyone!  It's a really soggy day here - warm enough to melt the 6 or so inches of snow we got on Friday, plus lots of thunderstorms to really make things messy.  Think that I should maybe put life vests on the dogs to send them out into the backyard!  Yuck.  Talk about dreary weather.  I've said it before - spring can't get here soon enough!

But until things start looking more promising outside, I've got the perfect thing to help perk you up on a grey Monday - a giveaway!  Our friends at CafePress have come up with another cool idea, and they asked me to help share it with you.

It's called a "Funtainer".  How can that not make you smile?  The name alone is so cheery, plus you can personalize it to your hearts' content!   Of course we have no shortage of photos to use, but picked two of our favorite to adorn our little thermos.  

There are several thermos designs available, we picked this screw-lidded version (so a certain little black bulldog would be unlikely to open it himself).  It can keep things either hot or cold for several hours.

Once again, thwarted by lack of thumbs!
It's perfect to use for taking our Tuna Fudge (go see our last post, the recipe is included there) to agility trials.  Brutus gets totally excited when he sees the thermos, as he knows that's his "jackpot" container.  After an agility run Brutus gets treated repeatedly, rapid-fire style,  for about 30 seconds - that's his "jackpot", and let me tell ya it takes a lot of fudge!

Any goodies in there??

CafePress has so many neat items, we always end up spending tons of time playing around on their website.  That being said, the design page is really easy to use - even a bulldog can do it (no offense, Brutus).

Hey - what's that supposed to mean??
Pick out your Funtainer, then upload a couple of photos of your favorite furkids.  You can also add text in a huge array of fonts & colors.

Decisions, decisions.
Of course there might be more than one dog who wants a say-so in the design process...

Whatcha doin' big brother??
SO would you like your very own FUNTAINER?  As in the past, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post (either via Facebook or through Blogger) and we'll enter you in a drawing to win one, courtesy of our super friends at CafePress.  Whether you use it for yummy doggy treats or actually use it for (*gasp*) yourself, this is really a neat little item.  In fact it's so nifty, there just might be some competition in the house for who gets to use it....

I want one too, mom!
We'll leave the post open for comments until the end of the day Friday (5PM EST, March 4th).  The winner will be chosen by Frenchie-mediated random drawing on Saturday, and announced early next week.

OMD,I would LuRvE a Funtainer. Just for my special goodies. If it had my name and picture on it would I have to share it with BabyRocketDog?? That is soooo cool.

I wouldn't mind having a Funtainer with my very own pic on it. It seems like a very good idea to have ones very own funtainer. Thanks for telling us about this.
