It was also mutual.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 5th Anniversary celebration last month. We had a blast reminiscing and giving a ton of stuff away. Hats, free days, leashes, discounts—it was a whirlwind of excitement for us at both locations.
And we especially enjoyed all of the entries in our “Love Letter Contest.” Over 70 people (and presumably their dogs) entered to win $500 for themselves and $500 for their favorite rescue foundation.
By any measure, that’s a whole lot of love.
And we read through each entry—even the ones that went well beyond our 100-word maximum. And we were blown away!
Thank you again to each and every one of you. Positive encouragement is always welcome at our cage-free canine community. And while wagging tails usually tell us all we need to know, the written word from human companions means a lot as well.
So, without further ado, we are happy to present the winner and the runner up from our first-ever Love Letter Contest…
Miss Mayadoodle! And of course, her highly-literate owner, Kasey Schneider.
Here’s a photo of Maya, and her entry is below.
TWB Love Story
There once was a puppy named Miss Mayadoodle.
Her mommy and dad loved her oodles and oodles.
But during the day,
They both were away
And thoughts of lonely Maya were brutal.
So they searched for a place with people who care,
A trained staff that plays and is always prepared.
And what do you know?
The Watering Bowl
Was the answer to all of their prayers.
From going to leaving and the time in between
They’re friendly, professional, and always so clean.
She’s made lots of friends,
So this story ends
With the happiest doggie that you’ve ever seen!
And the other big winner, alongside Maya, is her rescue foundation of choice: Gateway Pet Guardians.
Our runner up was Shelby whose crafty wording landed her a 5-pack of doggy daycare and a spiffy new TWB leash.
SHELBY LOVES TWB
Shelby, our black lab, loves The Watering Bowl because:
Time flies there, and it’s a
Each dog is treated royally. Dogs are
Wonderfully free to make friends, and there’s an
Terrific prices, with
Everything a dog needs, half- or full-days. Dogs
Run, romp, and socialize, while
Investigating and sniffing others. It’s definitely
Not your average boarding place, and is
Good for dogs of all shapes and sizes. Dogs can be
Boarded overnight, and it’s
Open 7 days a week.
What dog owners want is a caring,
Loving environment, like The Watering Bowl.
Thank you again to all of our fans, and congratulations to Maya and Shelby and Gateway Pet Guardians.
