Burrower's Choice Giveaway

Dear Hearts and Kindred Spirits,

Welcome to the Fall 2013 Burrower's Choice Giveaway!

Enter today for a chance to win four Time to Burrow! cards from my very special shoppe. That's a cash value of over ten US dollars plus free worldwide shipping... yes, you read that correctly. Getting the financially conservative Dachshund Daddy to give us his blessing for this giveaway was harder than housebreaking a dachshund puppy, but here we are:

To enter, you need to visit Tootsie's Shoppe, sniff around, and answer the following questions in a comment to this post:

1. Is there something you really like about Tootsie's Shoppe?
2. Is there anything I'm clearly not doing right, in your opinion?
3. Is there anything you would like to see in Tootsie's Shoppe that isn't already there?

The deadline to enter the Burrower's Choice Giveaway is Tuesday, October 15, at 11:59 pm AoE (Anywhere on Earth). If you haven't heard this one yet, it's how electrical and computer engineers set their deadlines... as long as it's earlier than 11:59 pm on 10/15 anywhere on Earth, you can enter our giveaway. For the record, the last place on Earth for any day to end is Howland Island, an uninhabited US territory just west of the International Date Line.

For purposes of compliance with the US Federal Communications Commission regulations, let me state on the record that no purchase is required. Off the record, duh... any purchase makes me wag!

One lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced on this bloggie on October 17. Not October 16, because it's a Wednesday, and it's supposed to be wordless. I do apologize in advance for the many sleepless nights you will experience as you wait for the aforementioned announcement.

I want Tootsie's Shoppe to be wotten waven, so I look forward to your constructive criticism. I have a thick skin and, if you really don't like my shoppe, I want you to tell me... but I also want you to tell me what I could do to improve. If you just write "Tootsie, close down your shoppe and go back to your burrow", your entry will not be valid. Thanks!

Please note that the default configuration of the Shoppe prevents you from viewing products rated PG-13, including my Doggy Comeback and my Ocean Pee products. This is Zazzle's policy, not my own. To view all products, click on Change at the bottom of the sidebar on the left-hand side:

and set the content filter to Moderate if your human is 13 or older:

Since I'm a Bicontinental Dachshund, allow me to reiterate that we'll be shipping worldwide! Entries from anywhere on Earth are welcome. Please no entries from Howland Island; it's uninhabited.

Thanks for your participation,
keep on wagging,


  1. Very cool, that's a lot of fun stuff. I hope you have great success. And I hope I win the giveaway LOL

  2. The site looks great Tootsie well done, hope it is a success and how about a fridge magnet. Lady Vicki

  3. Well now it is a treat for me, Bertie, to visit any shop 'cos, as you'll have probably guessed by now, Gail is not an enthusiastic shopper. But I can tell you she has been looking very carefully at the Bicontinental Dachshund mug and considering a purchase. Personally, I particularly like the 'Time to Burrow' cards. Now I must say I am a bit disappointed at the lack of wire-haired fox terrier material on the website, although Gail is saying she thinks I am missing the point here. But I know from Bu Bu and Chu Chu that you have within your household the ability to depict wire-haired fox terriers beautifully, so I still think a card showing, lets say, a WFT and a dachshund out on a hike together in the mountains would be just the thing.
    Oh I do hope I have said enough in this comment to qualify for entry into the giveaway thingy.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Don't look to Gail for advice on commercial matters. She is not too bad at earning money doing her sciency stuff, but suffers from a complete lack of business acumen....

  4. Are you SURE Howland Island is uninhabited? I like your site, Tootsie.

  5. I trust this step's taken with gravity
    - Some say money began our depravity
    I'm quite underwhelmed
    By your "coin of the realm"
    So I question this new form of "sanity"

    signed: Truffle?

  6. We didn't know you had a Zazzle shop.

    We see you got one of those... Ummmmm INTERESTING... ANONYMOUS comments...... you might want to go to your settings and mark that NO ANONYMOUS COMMENTS are permitted... Just sayin.

  7. I like the Have you been good Christmas card. I think that the page is not too busy, and products are easy to see.
    The mug is a temptation. I'm looking forward to perusing the page again.

  8. Hey Tootsie

    How pawsome that you've got your own shop! I'll have to go and check it out! :)

    Wags to all

    Your pal Snoopy :)

    Hi, Toots! I like the shop. You are a true original, and it comes through in your funny offerings.
    Because you are such a big sausage for the mountain hikes, I wonder if another apparel item or two, appropriate for outdoor wear, might be a good addition.
    Keep on wagging! Warm regards from Chicago...
