We Are #TeamDog

This is football fans favorite time of the year.  It has already been exciting with the first National College Playoff Championship.  The next big unofficial American sports holiday is Super Bowl Sunday.  People have parties planned with enough food to feed an army and enough drinks to float a ship.  There will streamers, balloons, and big foam fingers.  Bets can be placed; some dreams will made, and others crushed.  Loyal fans are ready to cheer for their team.  The question on everyone’s lips is the same; “Are you Team Dog or Team Cat?”  That’s right; it’s almost time for Super Bowl Sunday Kitten Bowl.  It airs February 1, 2015 on the Hallmark channel.
As usual, all of the talk is about this year’s “can’t miss” Bowl commercial.  .  The biggest Bowl commercial this year may be #TheLucyBowl on Kitten Bowl!  The commercial is going to change the way that you feel about your pets.  You don’t want to be the only person at work on Monday that missed it!
You can help spread the word about the commercial and enter for a chance to win some great prizes.  The Lucy Foundation is giving away two iPads Minis with #TeamDog or #TeamCat Pet Jerseys, and four #TeamDog or #TeamCat sports packs!
Entering is easy!
Take a photo of your pet with a #TeamDog or #TeamCat sign.
**This seems like it should be an easy enough thing to accomplish.  Make a sign with #TeamDog written on it.  Dad gets the camera and I get Bentley and Pierre to come sit next to the sign.  Easy peasy, right?
 Me: “Bentley…Pierre…y’all come here.”
Bentley: “Hey Mom!  Hey Dad!  Did I hear you holler treats?  Wait a minute.  What is this sign?”
Pierre: “Don’t go over there dude!  I can’t read that sign from here, but it looks like it spells V-A-C-U-U-M.”
Me: “It’s not a vacuum, it is a sign.  Come on over here and let your Papaw take a picture of you and Bentley.”
Bentley: “Watch me, Pierre.  Look, I’m kissing it.  Smooch, smooch.  See, I’m not scared.”
Pierre: “Don’t do it Bentley!  It’s a trick!  I’ve got a bad feeling about this whole thing.”
Bentley: “You have some serious trust issues.  It’s not a vacu…what?!  Oh no, it's got me!”
Pierre: “Accckk!  I knew it!  It's a dog-eating vacuum sign!  Gramma!  It is sucking Bentley’s face!  Call 9-1-1!  I’m outta here!  I’ll wait in the living room!”
Me: “Oh good grief!  Bentley, please pose by this sign…alone.  You just had to go and stick your head in the sign didn’t you?  Poor Pierre thinks it was eating you.”
Bentley: “Sorry, I couldn’t stop myself!  Besides, now I get the #TeamDog photo all by myself.” Snicker
Me: I’ll just post your photo today on Facebook.  We can enter a picture each day there, on Instagram and Twitter.  The Lucy Foundation will even allow for digital manipulation like PhotoShop.  We can really have some fun!  That way we don’t have to worry about dog eating signs.”  Bahahaha!
Pierre: “I can still hear y’all, ya know!”
