Oops!!!!! And It's All Parental Unit's Fault!

Well,  Parental Unit must admit to not asking The Bark in advance whether they shipped outside of the U.S. The first winner chosen, Priscilla of "The Life of Eva the Sheltie", just happens to live in Malaysia, and while The Bark does distribute its magazine to some markets outside the U.S., Malasyia is not one of them. So...Parental Unit is forced into the cataclysmic decision of choosing a new winner. 


She wrestled with how to do so, and decided that at least one fair way was to simply choose the first comment on the post (she realizes that there were a variety of other strategies to choose from, but she had used this one before).

So the new winner is Pip from pipinthegame.blogspot.com/! A hearty congratulations to our winner, Pip!

Just so you know, Parental Unit has already written an e-mail of apology to Priscilla, and will try to send her the book anyway, provided the cost of shipping isn't astronomical.

She also wrote an e-mail to Pip to confirm that he lives in the U.S. -Whew!

We apologize profusely for any inconvenience, and we're already getting such issues straightened out in advance for our next give-a-way.

I'm pooped and have already headed to bed for the evening.

I'm sure Eva will understand, she's such a sweetie-pie.

As is that photo. I wish my dog would settle under the covers like that. Too cute!

Mr. Pip said...

I am VERY EXCITED! Thanks Bocci! I live in the U.S., but I am in a bit of jam overseas right now ...

Your pal, Pip

Hi Bocci, don't worry about it! We were happy we had the luck and we are still happy with it.

We're also happy that Pip is chosen and he lives in the States. Congratulations, Pip!!!

Please don't get us the book either, I can assure you that the postage is more than the cost of the book. It's not worth it! So, please don't. Thanks for your kindness and generosity but we don't need the book. If you still feel uncomfortable with it, why not send some green papers to your shelters or any pet organisations?

We completely understand it as Malaysia is actually a far far land from the US. You know from my part to the US, LA is the nearest for direct flight and it takes at least 17 hours, so you can imagine if I wanted to go to some other places of the US. I always shudder whenever I think about it. This is also a reason Rosie keeps on saying that she won't want to study in the US because of the flight. She finds it from the UK to Malaysia which takes 13 hours is already a torture to her : )

Thanks for the fun though! In fact, I needed some lucks and I think I got it at last. I will post in my blog later on. Thanks for giving me that luck too!!!

Bocci, you sure look comfortable. I tried to get under the covers the other day, but someone said something about muddy paws and I got sent to the floor. Mama helped me wash my paws later. I can't help it if they send me outside and the sprinklers had been on. What's a dog to do?

Your pal,

Opie
