Wowzer! It's a January Christmas for Rescues!

Dear Dog's Ear friends,


In December, TaDE (Through a Dog's Ear) had a really fun word game contest that included seven days of free downloads. The challenge was to unscramble one word each day for seven days that formed the following sentence: 


Creating sound-aware, canine-loving households together!

There was supposed to be a prize for one grand-prize winner consisting of

the TaDE book and 7 CD's for themselves and a 3-CD Calm your Canine series for their favorite animal rescue. The additional nine winning contestants were to receive the Calm your Canine series for their favorite rescue organization.


The contest was so successful that the first 10 winning entries came in exactly on the first minute the final word was posted. (Don't ask me how they did that!) And dozens of contestants sent in their answers shortly thereafter.


We were so deeply touched by everyone's desire to help their favorite rescue organization or shelter that we decided to make every US or Canadadian submitter a winner. We went nuts! We awarded two grand-prize winners and everyone who entered on December 12 won at least one CD for their fave rescue. Click here to view my trip to the post office, including the surprised look on the postmaster's face when I walked in looking like Santa. I guess he thought that everyone was done mailing multiple packages by December 24!


Below is a list of all the contest entrants along with their favorite rescues and shelters that won free Through a Dog's Ear music. At TaDE, we live for this! We can barely wait to share stories on how the dog's reacted to Music to Calm your Canine, Vol. 3!
