The Pet Parade Anniversary Hop

Bentley: “Oh, I am soooo excited!  Guess what we celebrate today?”
Pierre: “Woo Hoo!  It’s Friday, let’s have a party!”
Bentley: “Yes, it is Friday, but that’s not what we are celebrating.  Fridays happen every week.  Plus, we don’t work so every day could be Friday to us.  Guess again.”
Pierre: “It’s Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Night!  Woo Hoo, let’s party!”
Bentley: “We don’t celebrate that particular holiday.  Guess again.”
Pierre: “It’s Worldwide Art Day!  Grab some crayons and let’s get this party started!  Woot Woot!”
Bentley: “You know I love to color, but that’s not what we are celebrating.”  *sigh
Pierre: Okay, hang on…I got it!  It’s Happiness Happens Day!  Yippee!  Let’s have cake.  That makes happiness happen, for sure!”
Bentley: “That’s true and cake always makes me happy.  You still aren’t even warm with your

guesses.  Seriously dude, THINK!”
Pierre: *drumming paws and concentrating  “Well, it IS International Cat Day, but we aren’t cats and none of our cat friends live close to us.  Besides, they'll probably have catnip cake.  Wait a minute…is it my birthday again?  Happy birthday to me!  Bring on the presents!  YES!!!”
Bentley: “Good grief!  No, it’s not your birthday.  At least you are getting warmer.  It is the first anniversary of our Pet Parade blog hop!  You don’t get any presents, but we do have a super tremendous giveaway.  There’s no cake, but Rascal and Rocco have some delicious hors d'oeuvres.”
Pierre: “Well, duh.  Everyone knows it is Pet Parade’s one-year celebration.  I thought that you were referring to something else.  Hey, you know how as co-hosts we are always saying that there are no rules?  Does that mean we can enter for the spectacular giveaway?  I’ve seen the prize photos and I’d LOVE to win!”
Bentley: “Sorry, but there are rules to the giveaway.  One is that we can’t enter.  The other is that you must be 18+ years old.  We will ship worldwide and the giveaway ends on August 21, 2014.  The big winner will be announced on August 22nd.  Our friends just need to fill out our Rafflecopter entry.  You know, we make everything easy peasy.  It’d be great for everyone to hop in the parade this week.
Pierre: “Someone is going to make out like a bandit!  We have a list of wonderful prizes for our winner.  Here, let me show y’all”
1 Beautiful Chalcedony Pearl & Silver Necklace on 16" Chain

birthday.  We can feature a close-up of the prizes over the next few days!  Did you notice our banner?  That is all of the Pet Parade co-hosts' pets.  Rascal and Rocco even included the entire Returns gang.  That’s because they will always be our family and we are giving away one of our books.  Our human hosts sure do have a lot of furry companions.”
Pierre: “I just checked with Rascal & Rocco.  We gotta get over to their place.  They have cocktails, nip, and bones!  Once again, I say WooHoo!
Bentley: “Does everyone hear that?  Visit all of our co-hosts and we will meet up at Rascal & Rocco’s for a virtual party!  We will start at Love is being owned by a Husky, hop over to pick up Basil the Bionic Cat, and then swing by Jan’s Funny Farm.  The Pet Parade ROCKS!
