Park Day 2.0!

Attention Blogville!!!  Did you have fun on Park Day?  Completely enjoyed dragging your peeps off their tushies and getting some fresh air and sun?  I bet you did.  Well, Gizmo, Blogville’s Outdoor Woodsman Guide, and I, your Director of Parks and Recreation, are here to tell you about Park Day 2.0.

IMG_7112

What?  You say?  A Park Day 2.0?!  Oh yes, oh yes.  You didn’t think that the best we could do is just ask you to go to a park, did you?  Oh no, no, no.  We have much much more planned for you.  That was just the tip of the iceberg.  I mean hiking trail.  Bol.

See, both Gizmo and I have Park Day 2.0 bingo cards.  Find them on my Park Day 2.0 page on my blog and on Gizmo’s blog.  Pick out a card you want to play.  You have until June 2nd to play your Bingo.  That’s right – one whole month to play Park Day 2.0 Bingo!

Here’s how you play – you download the card and then photograph yourself doing the activities in one of the rows (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally).

When you are ready to submit your Bingo, do a post that shows your Bingo Card you played, which Bingo you earned, and pictures of you doing the activities.    Then come back here and join the linky link!  And, you can have more than one post, which equals more than one entry, for the REALLY GREAT PRIZES!  So that means that you do not have to wait until June 2nd to play your Bingo card, you can play and post any day between now and then, and as many times as you can!

I know you can do it!  And if you need inspiration, I shall remind you between now and then.

Oh…and did I mention prizes?

Our sponsors are Cloud Star Dynamo Dog Functional TreatsKONG Premium Treats and Deidre’s K9 Naturals. They’ve put together some pawsome prize packages and Gizmo and I will be telling you about their products and the prize packages throughout the month.

Good luck Trailblazers!!!  Take the badge!  And please, if you have any questions, HOLLA!  Comment here and I shall do my best to respond quickly.

Oh, and hiking around, it makes us fitter! On Fridays! Woohooo!!!

And, if these squares don’t work for you (like, if it is snowing in your neck of the woods and you can’t find a butterfly), then you can definitely swap out squares.  The idea is just to get out there and get moving!  Have fun.

For my Park Day outing, Momma took me to Mills Pond. What a pretty place!

IMG_7162

It just seemed like whichever path we took to get down to it, there were a lot of down trees!

IMG_7155

So, we hung out at the top of it…

IMG_7163

Did you know today in the US it is Arbor Day? So, Momma made sure she took a picture of me by a tree!

IMG_7158

This is a beech tree! See how close to the top of the soil the roots are?  Yowsa!  This tree is just HUGE.

IMG_7161

Now I know I am here early, but I am hoping Chef Sasha is here making of her possum pizza!  Cause I want a slice real bad!  And I am off to sniff out the rest of you too!

Finn’s Momma here – Hope that you enjoyed hitting up a local park and sniffing somewhere new today!  I can’t wait to go around and see where everyone got to spend some of their park time with their peeps.  Now don’t forget to leave a comment here or with Gizmo so we can draw a name for all our prizes!!  You can do so through Sunday night.  We’ll draw our winner on Monday and announce the lucky someone on Tuesday.

And stay tuned Blogville, rumor has it that Park Day 2.0 is coming real soon…

A Whole Bunch of Stuffs. And TOMORROW

Proud Finnie and Charley here!  Our Momma was asked to contribute to a non-dog related blog and we forgot to tell you about it last week.  So, go here and check it out and then come back here and tell her how fabulous it is!  And, if you are in one of the cities which has Sidetour, join up – there are a ton of adventures to choose from!  Momma has already lead one, will lead another one tomorrow, and is planning a bunch more over the summer!

Now, head on over to the Pet Blogger Mall.  There should be some new features up on that site today, like the FAQs and About Us section.  Want to sell some of the items you make?  Find out how!  Want to know how this whole idea came to fruition?  Head on over.  Want to find out when it’ll open?  Click the link.  And make sure to follow the blog so you get all the updates!

And don’t forget about tomorrow – Park Day!  Get your posts ready!  We CANNOT wait to see where you all went!  And, save some room in your bellies, cause Chef Sasha is bringing her food truck!!!  I love the possum pizza with extra possum.  And NO, I don’t share.  Except with my Wally.  See you tomorrow!2012-10-17 15.29.14
