Tiney’s Bicentennial MYSTERY Giveaway!!!

That’s right!  It’s my blog’s 200th anniversary and it’s time to par-TAY and get jiggy with the mystery giveaway!!!

So who’s up for a little celebrating?

I’m pulling out  all the stops for this one!  There are fireworks overhead for your viewing pleasure, but first things first.

First we must all don our beautiful tiaras.  I had them flown in from Manhattan’s premier 5th Avenue jeweler, Harry Winston.  And yes boys, you too have to wear them, but something tells me my boys won’t mind too much.


At the bar we have case upon case of Cristal.

PH2006070601686 I’ve decided to go fancy schmancy with the cocktails, but for food we’re going to keep it simple and fun.

Made-to-order omelets.  Be daring and pile in as many fattening ingredients as you can.  Because during a bicentennial celebration, the calories don’t count!

Rocky-Top-OmeletteChefClose How about some spicy chicken wings?  Don’t worry, I have wipes to clean your dainty little or if you’re Jill, nubby fingers with.

ChickenWings I know Gigi would never forgive me if I didn’t have a bit of Mexican food too, so how about some enchiladas?  Since Jimmy’s are the best I’ve ever tasted, although it chokes me to admit it, I’ve had him prepare them for us.


And not to forget our fur babies, how about some fresh-from-the-butcher T-Bone steaks?

1369Loin T-Bone Steak 

But where is our dessert, you ask?  Well, right here!

Chocolate covered strawberries…

g_strawberries And cheesecake!!!  Many different varieties of cheesecake!!!


And for the puppies, we have a selection of gourmet dog cookies!


I guess you’re wondering, “So what IS the giveaway prize?”

Well now, you know I wouldn’t be acting true to myself if I made this easy on you.  Remember, I’m calling this a mystery giveaway, and for good reason. 

‘Cause I’m not gonna tell you what you get if you win!  Bwaaa haaaaaa haaaaaa! That’s my version of an evil laugh, by the way.

I will give you a photographic hint though.  Because hey, I’m fair like that.

Picture 1023

So while all of you get your drink on and stuff yourselves silly, I’m going to turn this over to Strudel to outline the rules of this mysterious giveaway.   Over to you, Strudel baby!


Yo yo yo, my bloggy peeps!  It’s Strudel here, or as Mommy likes to call me, “Strudely Doodley”.  How lame is that?

So yeah, Mommy wants me to outline the rules.  Why do we have to have rules?  I think we should just play and have fun, maybe lick ourselves a bit…


Well, excuuuuuuuuuuse me and my ill-mannered puppy ways!  Fine, back to the rules.

Mommy says you can get  multiple entries (am I the only one who thinks that sounds kinky?) by doing the following:

  • Leave a comment on this post and you get one entry.
  • Leave a comment on this post, and become a follower and you get another entry.
  • Leave a comment on this post, become a follower, and add Mommy to your blog roll and you’ll get two more entries!(Mommy says that being on someone’s blog roll is way more important than having followers, ‘cause followers don’t always come back.)
  • Leave a comment on this post, become a follower, put Mommy on your blog roll and do a post about her Mystery Giveaway, linking back to her, and you’ll get an additional three entries!

Wow, if I counted on my paws correctly, that’s 7 chances you’ll have to win!  But make sure you tell Mommy in your comment which of these things you’re going to do for entries, or else she won’t be able to keep up.  She’s not smart like us retrievers.

Picture 057

That’s it.  I’m all done in.  This was hard work for a young pup, believe me you!  A bit of self gratification grooming, and then it’s ni-night for me!



Picture 061



Strudel out!



Thanks girl!  You did a great job!  But really, was that licking yourself thing really necessary?  I have some readers with very fine sensibilities.

Jill!  Step away from the cheesecake and stop flirting with Artie!  You’re not his type!  When you grow a penis then you can flirt with him, okay?  Jill already has a penis. A pink one.  I’ve seen it!  Really, I’m not lying!  You’re not even eligible for this giveaway, so what the hell are you doing here?  And give me back that tiara!

So everyone, this is it.  The giveaway will end on Saturday, 4-18, at midnight  and I will post the winner’s name the following day.  Good luck!!!  Remember to let me know in your comment what you’re willing to whore yourself do to get multiple entries!

It’s been groovy peeps, but I may have drunk too much of that Cristal.




Pssst! If you love me, you might love my sister more. Go visit her at Jill's Believe it or Not, and tell her I sent you!

So I'm leaving a comment but am already a follower and have you on my blog roll so I don't count but one entry but that's alright.

    I'm pretty sure you know I'm all wrapped up in your blog already but just in case: commented, followed, blog rolled. (Sorry I always make you go through all the separate hoops for the same thing at my place. Maybe I just like reading your ridiculous comments.)

  • Ginger

    Cute post!! I love a mystery and I love that Strudel girl. What a doll baby.
    I am a follower, I have you on my blog roll, and I will do a post about you and link back to you. and I want some of that delicious looking cheesecake. And the strawberries are looking pretty good too. And since they have no calories, send me all you got!!

  • Michael

    Ok, so I'm leaving a comment. I'm becoming a follower. But my blog roll is in my internet favorites and not linked to my blog...does that count for an entry??? I know, I know...I need to get with the times.

    I'll see if I can crank out a post linking back to you for some added entries.

    Do I have to fight Artie for the tiara??? LOL

  • Mrs. B. Silly

    Heaven, Im in heaven

  • Anonymous

    It's okay Strudel...I like to lick myself too.

    Thanks, but I'll pass on the omeletts. Not a big egg eater. I will take some chicken wings and strawberries though. To go please.

    Alrighty then...I'm commenting, I'm a follower, and you're already on my blog roll. Which I too think is more important cause that's what I read off of. Not my follower list.

    Hope I win some mystery shit!

    Oh, and happy 200th ;)

  • Anonymous

    So if I'm an annual pass follower and a member of the Premier Club - because I'm the only person to ever give you babies heads in a tin and pickled onions, do I get an extra entry?

    Strudel-Woodle is just edible. She really is. I have Keeshy-Weeshy and Frey-Frey at home so I can't talk.

    What's with the rainstorm? Apparently it hasn't rained for 3 months...until we arrived! Someone put a voodoo on us I'm certain.

  • SchmeckyGirl

    How cute is Strudel!!!! And that food looks so good! I figured out one of the items in the pic... I won't say.
