I did the draw for Pure.Dog.Blog Contest No. 1 last night at 12:01–just couldn’t wait any longer to see who won!
So from all those who’ve left comments, our winner is … Helene Belanger of SassyTails in Markham Ontario.
SassyTails stands for two things: Helene breeds and shows Chinese Crested as SassyTails Reg’d Chinese Crested and it’s also the name of Helene’s small dog-grooming salon for small- to medium-sized breeds that she runs from her home.
Helene’s already a subscriber to Canine Review magazine (good girl Helene!) so we’ll give her a free renewal when her current sub expires. She’s excited about winning and sent us this note about her dogs:
Our goal is to produce healthy, happy, beautiful and versatile puppies to be enjoyed as companions first, in the show ring and/or performance events. Dogs from our bloodlines are Canadian, American and European champions. Our dogs are family members and have first dibs on the couches, chairs and beds.
And just for fun, here’s a historical look at a Crested from 1915.
We had an excellent response to our contest, so much so that we’ll definitely run another. I enjoyed reading all your comments and now that we’ve got a good thing going, don’t stop!
Keep on clicking “Leave a Comment” which you’ll find to the left of every post.
Thanks to all who commented, including our blog reader in Columbia!
