Drumroll, Please...

Other bloggers have had their pets help them pick the winner for their giveaways, and since Matthias is out of town, I decided Pono could help me. So I wrote down all the names on a piece of paper, cut the paper into little pieces, and spread them out on the kitchen floor. This is what happened:



I guess it isn't really that interesting for dogs. At least, it isn't nearly as interesting as that itchy part of a leg that needs chewing on. So I sweetened the deal a little for mister Pono, by putting a tiny bit of peanut butter in the corner on each and every piece of paper. It worked!!! Pono picked a winner, and the winner is....
NANCY of Nancy Medina Art!!!!! Congratulations, Nancy! Please email your address to me at weenfish@gmail.com so I can mail your lizard to you. Thank you everyone who left a comment. And stay tuned. I may do another because that was so much fun!!!

Sorry I didn't post another video of Pono actually choosing the winner. I was having trouble directing and filming at the same time. I guess this film making stuff is not for me!

Hilarious! My jaw would've dropped to the floor if Pono had actually picked one and handed it to you. Glad his goofiness came through. :) Congrats, Nancy.

I am looking at this video of Pono yet again. Look at the obliging and endearing way he jumps up and runs to you immediately, the instant you call him.
I tried that with Cindy Cat:
'Cindy! Illi ba' (Kannada
for 'come here').
No response, not even a twitch.
'Cindy!'
zzzzzzz.....
'CINDY!!'
.......

That's Cat for you.
But I still love her.
And sometimes, sometimes when she is in the mood, she can be as obliging as Pono. Really...
