Winners of Shelby's Christmas Raffle!

JD - Hi everyone! The humans are back from London and we're back from the kennels so we can FINALLY do a post about Shelby's Christmas raffle!

Max - We're sorry it's a bit late - the draw WAS supposed to be last weekend but had to be put off until the 8th because of the bad weather we've had in the UK.

JD - And then as soon as the draw happened the humans went to London and we went to the kennels - it was all a bit up-in-the-air we're afraid! So we mailed the winners to Mona so that she could get the word out about who the lucky winners are.

Max - But, without further ado, here - at last! - is the photo edition of Shelby's Christmas raffle!

JD - On Thursday morning FH wrote down the names of everyone who had entered together with who had purchased the tickets - she wishes she had printed it out as it took her nearly 2 hours to do this, he he he!

Max - We then chose a box for her to put all the tickets into....

We thought this was a most suitable container to hold the tickets!

Just LOOK at all those tickets!! Thank you so much everyone who purchased a ticket!

JD - As quite a few of the prizes have been supplied by Lily's human Jo we asked Jo if she'd draw the 4 winning tickets and were delighted when she said yes!

Our beautiful and generous GSD pal Lily - isn't she just gorgeous?!

Max - We LOVE Jo - she makes such a fuss of us and gives us treats and cuddles and tells us we're good boys and handsome boys - sigh! She's our most favourite human in the whole wide World!

FH - Um, Max?

Max - Oh, er, yeah - I meant our most favourite AFTER you and MH - ahem.....

JD - Nicely backpawed there Max! Anyway, Jo is great! She doesn't blog so we also figured she'd also be a really 'impawtial' person to carry out the prize draw!

We sit like good boys for Jo and get a yummy treat as a reward!

Max - "Jo, Jo! You love ME the most don't you?! I'm sure you're giving ME the biggest cuddle!"
JD - "Nice try Max, but just look how well I fit into Jo's side and look how tightly she's holding me - I'm OBVIOUSLY her favourite!"

Max - After all the obligatory cuddles and smoochies with Jo we waited patiently whilst she drew out the 4 prizewinners!

JD - We gave the box a huge shake between each draw - and these were the tickets that came out.....

1st place winner - Trixie and Minnie with a ticket that Barbara Bassett had bought - well done!!

2nd place winner - JD and Max with a ticket from Oskar! We were so excited, but FH pointed out to us that it was highly likely that Santa Paws could be bringing us some of the items in the prize packages so we agreed that the 2nd place ticket should be drawn again. But we want to say thank you, THANK YOU to Oskar! He's just the best - so generous to get us a ticket and help Shelby - this is why he's our best-est blogging pal! If you don't know Oskar (then you've probably been living on the moon!) then please do visit him, he has such a fun blog. AND he also runs PBU (Pet Blogs United) with his mom person, which is a great blog-forum to meet pals - you really should check it out. Yup - Oskar is the best and we're so happy to be able to call him our best pal!

2nd place winner - Maggie Mae with a ticket that Mona and The Mommy had bought - woo woo!!

3rd place winner - Scampi with a ticket from JD and Max!!

This is Scampi - isn't he cute!! We purchased some tickets for some of our local pals and were delighted when Jo picked out one of these in the draw! Scampi doesn't have a blog but he has appeared on ours a few times - when he knows what he's going to get for his 3rd place prize we'll post some photos for you all to see!

4th place winner - Miss Mayzie with a ticket from Mona and the Mommy!

Max - Thank you so much to everyone who took part in Shelby's raffle - we had a lot of fun hosting it and we raised lots of green papers for Shelby and that's the main thing.

JD - And well done to all the winners! These are the prizes so please look below and let us know what you'd like.....

Puppy pack - medium stuffie octopus toy and lots of doggie toys and treats!

Pet's Eye View Camera and doggie chew toy!

Puppy pack - with giant stuffie octopus and a great selection of doggie toys and snacks!

Digital photo frame complete with 1gb memory card

Max - Winners can check this post below for more details about the prizes if they need to!

JD - We hope you all enjoyed reading our post about the raffle as much as enjoyed doing it!

Max - We need the winners to let us know what they'd like as a prize - please leave a comment below with an e-mail contact.

JD - Before we leave we'd like to remind everyone about Blueberry's Christmas auction which ends in less than 24 hours! Be quick - get your bids in to avoid severe disappointment!

Max - At 12 noon GMT tomorrow the auction ends - we will temporarily disallow all comments and will then post a list of the lucky winning bidders in the afternoon! Good luck everyone!

JD - Thanks again! We're sorry we haven't had a chance to leave comments on your blogs recently - the raffle and the auction have taken up all our time, but rest assured we're still visiting and will start leaving comments again in a few days time - please bear with us!!
