Happy Ollieversary and Reader Appreciation $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Hi, friends. My name is Ollie. Every once in a while my mom lets me take over her blog, because let's face it, I am the real star here. Mom may write the words, but it is my furry face that brings in the masses. (We do have masses, right mom?) I have really exciting news to share and I can't wait to tell you about the giveaway I'm hosting.

Happy Ollieversary!
Did you know today is my Ollieversary? A year ago today, my mom named her blog after me and I became an internet sensation. You see, the blog she started in 2011 was called Running for Dummies, but it turns out mom was the dummy because she didn't realize that the 'for dummies' book people own the copyright to that phrase. Since I am her all-time favorite running partner, she made the very smart decision to change her blog name to Running with Ollie. Running with my mom is one of my favorite things to do (chasing cats and receiving belly rubs are tied for second).

I know, I know. This blog is not all about me. Mom tries to keep me humble and reminds me that I am more of a blog mascot than the star, but we all know the real reason you tune in.

In honor of my one year Ollieversary, I am hosting the first ever canine-hosted giveaway. Mom and I are giving away one small gift bag with pink or black shoelaces, doggie treats, and a $50 Visa gift card as a thank you to our readers. It is the first annual Reader Appreciation Giveaway! I tried to tell mom that the treats were the only thing that the other dogs would really want, but she insisted on including the gift card. She can be so stubborn!
This is the easiest hosting gig ever. It's really simple to enter to win. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and fill out the Rafllecopter form. There are plenty of ways on Rafflecopter to earn extra entries if you are a current or new follower. Also please remember that winning entries will be verified before a winner is announced. (p.s. I don't know what a Rafflecopter is, mom told me to say all that.)

THANK YOU for reading about me (and my mom) and checking out my handsome boy pictures. I hope you'll keep coming back for more. I'll do my part. I'll keep enthusiastically running with mom and hopefully that will keep her motivated to run and write about running for years to come. We all know that dogs make the best running partners anyway. I honestly don't know what she ever did without me.

In closing, I'll leave you with a selfie.
