Wanna Win?!


Rupert: "Yo! Dogz! Me and my Pawsee wanna let you know about a way for you to win a Doodle Dog Painting this spring!"
Leeroy: "Um..Gangster Ru, you are silly! Everyone, on May 8th, 2010 from 10 am to 4 pm get yourselves down to Bark & Fitz Kanata to visit Kellie painting onsite and to enter to win a 16"x16" custom commission headshot of YOUR PET!!!"
Maybel: "That's a big prize! There's also going some taste testings of some great natural pet foods and other prizes."
Rupert: "To enter the Doodle Dog Painting contest, you have to come in to the store and doodle on a ballot and leave your information...then at the end of the day a winner will be randomly drawn."
Leeroy: "I thought they were going to be painted!"
Rupert: "They will be painted but at the end of the day a winner's name is going to be picked...smarten up Weeboy!"
Maybel: "There's a chance I get to go with Kellie for the day!!!"
Rupert and Leeroy: "WHHHHAAATTT???"
Maybel: "Well, you two are all grown up now and I need to be supervised a lot more than you...and I've never been to the store yet so it's my turn!"
Leeroy: "You better bring us back some treats!!"
Rupert: "As long as there are treats no one gets hurt."
Maybel: "You got it boys. Hey, Rupert, this week's painting is of "Mick the Lick" and he has a silver chin just like you!"
Rupert: "He looks so distinguished...quite a gentleman I must say...."
Leeroy: "Mickey is a sweet soul, wise and gentle. His family loves him very much. He is deaf and almost blind but his eyes shine bright with love and happiness."
Maybel: "What a good boy! Here's to Mickey!"
Rupert: "We love him...and we would love for you to stop in and see Kellie and introduce yourselves and your pups! We will remind you again next week, ok?!"

So.....What's Up?

Rupert: "Hello peeps! We want to wish you a Happy Easter and let you know we are really in the spirit this year!"
Maybel: "Yes! It's an extra special holiday weekend because its somebunny's birthday this Monday!!!"
Leeroy: "MEEEEEEEE!!!! It's MY birthday!!! I am going to be THREE!!!"
Rupert: "Seems like just yesterday you came to live with us, little bro! You have really come out of your shell this past year....I am proud of you!"
Maybel: "I never had a birthday yet....mine's coming too next month so I can't wait to see what it's all about. I hear we get pancakes with bananas to start the day and then lots of other fun stuff to do and eat."
Leeroy: "Yah! And cause it's Easter too we get extra special treats! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!"
Rupert: "Today's painting is very fitting since we are all bursting with excitement and glee...It's "Kinematic Keiko"!"
Leeroy: "It's whaaaaa? I remember we got to meet Keiko...he came over to our house before Kellie started his painting. What does Kineautomatic mean?"
Maybel: "It's kinematic ... it plays a role in physics and includes animal locomotion. Kinematics is the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of objects without consideration of the causes leading to the motion."
Rupert: "That's what I was going to say."
Leeroy: "Uh.....ok....Maybel, how did you get so smart? You are a lot younger than Rupert and I so I don't understand how you can be so smart already."
Maybel: "Oh, boys, you are so naive....us girlies are wise beyond our years....there are many things about me you don't know yet but I will let them reveal themselves in due time. Let's go you silly rabbits, the festivities have started so let's get hunting for some treats!"
