Winning Rocks

The other day I won a door prize from Animal Ark (a Port Alberni Pet Store). I entered the prize at the pet stores customer appreciation day. There was free cupcakes and coffee.

They have a Siamese fighting fish in a Garfield fish tank that is legit. Also there were dear antlers for sale for dogs to chew on.

We didn't get to have hotdogs that the Army Cadets were cooking as we showed up to early.

The owner called me yesterday to tell me I won and to pick up my prize. There was a Tshirt and lots of treats for my dog, Oreo.
