To pick the winners, I gave each (most) of his toys a number at random and then threw them all onto the floor.
(Yes he has a lot of toys. It still isn't enough to keep him out of trouble.)
The first toy he chose was, very appropriately, his stuffed donkey, which was number 5 on my list.
Next up was Scorchi the scorpion, number 3 on the list.
And his final choice was Octus the Octopus, number 7.
(If you are wondering what Connor's favorite toys are, which I did not include here to make this fair, they are not any of these well made, expensive dog toys, although he does play with all of these. They are a plastic water bottle, one of my socks that he stole and a plastic handled dog brush that was one of Tanner's favorites when he was a puppy.)
Since none of Connor's choices landed on the few people who commented, but didn't want fudge or the one anonymous comment, I just went right down the list. I hope that seems fair. Comparing Connor's choices with the list of commenters, the winners are:
Congratulations to you and my condolences to everyone else. Please get in touch with me at aerissana@gmail dot com so I can get your addresses.
Thank you to everyone who participated and to all of you for sharing your time with all of us here at TheDancingDonkey. I'll probably never find the time I should to reply to all of you, but I love hearing from you anyway. You all give me a reason to keep writing.
