Paw It Forward

WOW, were we excited when we got this lovely box of goodies from Stella!! She must know us pretty well, because the box was stuffed with TREATS, and TENNIS BALLS, and a toy for TUG-OF-WAR!! Wow, what a fun gift for Paw It Forward!! Thank you, Stella, for your thoughtfulness and kindness! We have been having so much fun with our new toys!


If you haven't heard of Paw It Forward before, here's the explanation:

"The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'pay it forward' in their own way. This is how it works... We are going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn you will do the same on your blog. There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness doesn't have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around."

Now, typically you send this to the first 3 people that comment, but we thought we'd have a little fun with it. You can get up to 3 entries in this drawing:

1) Leave a comment on this post, telling us how you like to show kindness to others.

2) Mention this "Paw It Forward" on your blog, and leave a separate comment telling us you did so.

3) Post about "Paw It Forward" on your Twitter account, and leave a separate comment with your Twitter URL saying you did so. While you're at it, go ahead and follow us! We are @GusandWaldo.

We will keep the comments open until Monday, April 20th at 9:00 pm EST. After that, we will draw 3 lucky winners from random.org! Good luck!

p.s. Mommee got this idea from one of her favorite blogs, where she was a winner in a contest kind of like this!! Here's her prize!!

Stella sent you some wonderful things. Is the duck a "Slingshot Duck" or a name like that? Momma was considering getting one for me and wanted to know if it works well.
