At least you can rely on dogs …

I’m running a little behind on things this week … things like responding to all of your wonderful comments, catching up with all the lovely blogs I read, and I suppose just life in general. It’s just been one of those weeks … I do promise, I always catch up eventually.

Something you can at least rely on is the steadfast loyalty and unwavering love of a dog. While I grew up in a household of cats, as an adult I seem to have evolved into a house of dogs. Whatever else is going on in the world, your dog will always stay by your side. There’s something wonderful and beautiful about that.

Another thing you can rely on (at least most of the time) is mail – not email, texts or tweets – but rather genuine ‘hardcopy’, posted-with-a-stamp mail. So I was thinking it would be nice to combine these two reliabilities in a little giveaway.

Perhaps you’d like to win this lovely set of ‘dog postcards’ completely with matching ‘angelic dog’ envelopes? These would be perfect for your next letter-writing activity. There are actually 10 postcards in the set – the three central designs are doubles.

Simply click the linky below and share something that you rely on and you’ll be in the draw (don’t forget your email address, so I can contact you if you win).

The giveaway will close Thursday 4 November at midnight (AEST), and the winner will be chosen at random. I’m happy to post worldwide.

(PS. The winner of last week’s giveaway was 7 – Congratulations, I’ll be in touch).

    The cards are just lovely! And after your post about mail, it’s a very ‘appropriate’ idea for a giveaway xx

    Thanks for visiting. I love dogs. We have a five year old spoodle called Licorice. I will have to put her photo on my blog. Cheers Charmaine

      Hi Charmaine – Dogs are lovely companions for sure. I love the name of your spoodle … Licorice is a wonderful name, you’ll definitely have to share a photo of her. I bet she’s got a wonderful fun personality based on her breed mix! 🙂

    Dogs are the best – nothing more loyal and slobbery 🙂

      Hi Gabrielle – Haha, agreed. Dogs are wonderfully loyal, but yes they can also be exceedingly slobbery in their displays of love … 🙂

    I rely on my cat, at least for entertainment purposes!
