RAP Prize Drawing

It's Abby the Labrador Retriever here. It's that time!  The morning dawned clear and beautiful.

There was breakfast. Mom's famous Kefir pancakes.
A walk for me, and then it was time to post the results of last night's drawing of names for prizes from Recruit a Pal. I was a little tired after my great time at the dance with Frankie and all my friends but we went out and checked pee-mail around the neighborhood before Mom had to go to work.

Then it was time to post the winners from last night's prize drawing.  It started with picking a hat to draw the names from.

Hats selected, we  then had to write down the names of the recruiters AND the new/returning Blogville bloggers on slips of paper to draw from the hat.

Here's the New/Returning Bloggers.
The names went into the hat while Mom wrote downthe names of the recruiters on more slips of paper.
After MUCH serious deliberation. . .
The first name was drawn.
No - I didn't stuff the ballot hat Mom - really. . 

Try this again.

Here are our winners:

New and Returning Bloggers
And the Recruiters:
