Giveaway Dog is our very own mascot here at Suburban Style Challenge!
Her name is Trixie and she’s my quirky, full-of-personality pup with a pretty little mutt-face that’s impossible not to fall in love with. She hunts out great giveaways for Suburban Style Challenge fans, which she shares on our Facebook page from time to time (usually on Tuesdays).
A different, fun photo of Trixie is posted to allow other bloggers from all over to share giveaway events they’re hosting or participating in. It’s like a one-stop-shop for cuteness and great chances to win awesome stuff! And of course, if I come across something (or am participating myself), I share as well.
In case you’re wondering, Trixie is a mixed-breed dog that my husband and I got from 4Paws 4U 4Ever in West Chicago, IL. She was about 8 months old and had been pulled a mere 3 days before her kill date from a shelter in Indiana, and transported to the shelter in West Chicago. We were fortunate enough to find her there, where her crazy personality made us laugh and fall in love with her immediately. She came home with us Jul 9, 2005 and has been a big part of our lives ever since. She was a bit of a handful as a “puppy” but has grown into (with a lot of patience and hard work) a wonderful dog that is the poster-pup for rescuing!
In early 2013, Trixie was very sick. You can read about our ordeal here. Fortunately, Trixie is back to good health, and recently went off one of the last 2 medications she was on, which has helped bring her spunky personality back even more. We’re so lucky to have fantastic vets on our side, as well as understanding family and friends to help support us while we were dealing with such a tough time. And we are incredibly glad Trixie is back to good health!
