Woo hoo! A contest! Everyone loves contests! Especially easy ones. And trust me, this one is super easy.

A while back, I got this awesome book (for free!) called Pukka: The Pup After Merle. Now, I love getting free stuff, because (a) Sarah doesn't get to complain that if I want more stuff, I should get a job and work for it, and (b) free = awesome in general. Sarah, being the jerk that she is, didn't get around to reading the book until this last weekend.

I look much smarter when I have a book in front of me. I should encourage Sarah to take more of these pictures, and fewer of the kind where I am wearing clothes. Also, I think the placement of the book hides some of my girth. Never a bad thing.

Now, the author of this book (Ted Kerasote) also wrote a book called Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog, which Sarah has also read, and she cried A LOT when she read that. I'm sure it had something to do with how much she hates me and would rather have another dog. However, I tend to avoid her when she cries, lest she grab me and try to use my fur as a tissue, so I have no actual idea why she was crying.

Anyway, Merle's Door was a real book, with far-too-few pictures for my taste (Sarah thoroughly enjoyed it though. Typical). However, this Pukka: The Pup After Merle book is almost all pictures, which is awesome. I am sure it would also make a great Christmas present for someone who likes dogs (so, don't buy it for Sarah).

But, the best thing is, one of you is going to get a copy of Pukka without having to buy it! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post or on my Facebook page (it can be any sort of comment), and next Monday, I will randomly pick a winner, and send them the book! Super easy!

Good luck!


  1. I love reading your comments on Facebook. They are so funny sometimes and caring other times like when my best friend lost a new dog she just got. It is not fair that that store sold her a sick dog and she was still grieving for her other dog that died from Cushings disease.

  2. Choppy,I just want to say that Sarah loves you
    so why dont you give her a Big Wet Kiss <3

  3. Oh Choppy!! You KILL Me!!!!! First of all, you know perfectly well that Sarah loves you or why would she feed you every day and dress you up in human clothes??? OK, so she feeds you!!
    Secondly, I love you Choppy!! I have two dogs at home and a cat too, but I have a big heart and I have room to love you and all the other animals in the world too!! Anyway7, Just want you to know how much I enjoy nyour thoughts, Choppy, so please keep sharing!! misty

  4. Hey choppy, I'm just wondering.. What breed of dog are you? Or what cross are you?

  5. Nice book Choppy ! Somehow u look like you don't like the idea of giving it away. Smiles ! Love u Choppy.

  6. Choppy, I love your witty and amazingly well written blog posts. What you write is what I imagine my dog is thinking when I dress him up, color on him with washable markers, or use him as a pillow. I have a feeling the two of you would really get along, lol. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year you adorable mutt!

  7. Nice pic. It's nice to see you with some dignity. And you DO look smart.

  8. HI.CHOPPY.I miss my dog Pepper,she was 17 years old when she became an angel in dog heaven.Pepper is with my other dog SUE.

  9. I don’t want the book. Next time get a free round trip ticket to Tokyo.
    Come & see me! Miss you~~

  10. Hi Choppy - we live with Fran and Wendall, and we think you are really cool! They do the same stuff to us, and get annoyed when we shred a new pillow for them - well, their teeth aren't as good at it as ours, after all! Barks from Brandy, Sophie and Farley, Purrs from Cozzie and Ziggy....

  11. Hey Choppy - I think that my Mom, Sarah, needs that book from me for Christmas. Maybe then she'll be distracted long enough for me to sneak in her bedroom and piddle on the carpet, which is one of my favorite activities and I hardly ever get to do it.

  12. Choppy, this would be a great book for my sister.
