Basil picks a giveaway winner

With all that’s going on lately, picking the Yumvelope giveaway winner totally slipped my mind.

Basil helped me pick a winner. Okay, he snacked on his peanut butter kong, and I entered the numbers into the random generator.

Isn’t he cute, though? He approved the winner, and sends his congrats.

See Basil’s pick here!

Daaaaaaaah dogs holding things in their little paws makes me smile every time. I love Basil. And you. <3

I knew you’d appreciate that… I just LOVE it. I have too many photos of his paws in general, but when he is holding something? TOO cute.

How good are Kongs?!

Kongs are great! Basil is a small guy (shh, don’t tell HIM that…) so he has the smallest Kong – VERY strong, one of the only things B has not destroyed within FIVE MINUTES, honestly. I fill it with peanut butter or stick a crunchy treat in there, he is happy and busy for an hour!

Well I did not win but there is no way I could get upset with adorable Basil :)

aww, I know Rhonda. Basil eases the disappointments… hopefully I will do another one of these soon!

I had to leave a comment and tell you that Basil is just adorable. I grew up with doxies in the house from the time I could walk until I left home. (Not the same dogs obviously :-) Our shiba inus love a peanut butter kong as much as Basil seems to.

I will be glad to join you for Food ‘n Flix this month and am happy to have found your blog.

hi Tina! thanks for saying hello – I look forward to your Food ‘n Flix creation!

…and Basil says thank you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We had dachshunds all through my childhood, too – the first was Hansel, who my parents had before my brother and I came along! My parents still have 2 dachshunds, Jake and Elwood. They sure are fun dogs, right? and I can’t imagine any dog not liking a peanut butter kong!

Cheers, happy Thursday!
