Happy Dance!

OK. I promise I'm not rubbing it in. Honest. But I'm so excited about this and I really want to share. I thought I could just not say anything, but I can't!
Lindsay, from Living with Lindsay 
had a giveaway. The prize was a $500 gift card from Basset Furniture. 
I won!
I know!
BEST prize EVER!
I haven't heard from the company yet, so I'm not sure if there are restrictions on what I can choose. If there aren't any, I'm getting this.
(What? A small beige rectangle? Really? No. It's a sisal type rug. 8x10. Their website isn't very grab and drag friendly. But here's a link.)
It will be perfect for our living room.
Don't you think?

I've never had an area rug in here.
I bought a vintage wool rug a few years ago, but it really needed a good cleaning. I put it in the garage until I could find a company that would do it. Our dogs (yup, one of them was Milo) were especially stealthy one day, got into the garage and ate the rug.
From the center out. What they didn't eat they shredded. There was nothing to salvage. 
(But really, what could I expect?)
So that was our last rug.
Until now!

I'm curious~what would you choose?

  P.S. Today is the last day to enter my   giveaway!

Lucky you and good thing you've done your shopping homework! Of course I'm a bit jealous but definitely glad to know you're putting it to good use.

Susan @ homeroad.net said...

Ok I'm looking for the same rug for my living room. I will go check it out. And if it makes you feel any better I have a dog named Kody who eats my other dogs poop! I almost wish he would eat it all and we wouldn't have to clean up the yard.
Crazy dogs!

Jess said...

Your pic was a laugh out loud moment at work that was quite embarrassing! But well worth the good belly laugh!

Red Gate Farm said...

Congrats to you!! A rug like that will look fantastic in your living room!!!

And that last picture... well needless to say I got quite a laugh at that one! I think he can read because he looks so dang "caught". Fortunately, not a trait any of our dogs have, although they probably would eat the rug too.


Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

oh my gosh that had me laughing. we have two dogs and one eats his own poop, too. it's so disgusting. and if we don't lock the trash up they eat that. when they were puppies they ruined some nice furniture... the best was one day i came home to jake hiding under the dining table, but i could see the curtain moving as his tail wagged in shame... then when i saw the trash alll over the floor and the egg yolk smear on his face... i was angry but laughing, too. that rug is awesome, too- congrats on the win!

Poop eater huh? Mine eats the bunny poop out in the yard. Just lovely.

Love the rug. I say go for it. I think it will look great in there under my coffee table. Umm, I mean your coffee table.

gina3 said...

You lucky little duck! I'm so happy for you...jealous...but so happy for you! A big rug sounds like a good plan for spending it. So maybe you could do a post about your secret to winning giveaways! Congratulations!

afistfullofweeds* said...

LOL, Iam soo crying here! I havent laughed so hard in weeks!! My weiner dog has ate poop from the litter box......litter and all..I just wonder what is going on in those little heads of theirs! Truly though, I wish he would just leave my underwear alone!!
Oh,I think the sisal rug would be awesome!!

Lori said...

Now that is a prize! Enjoy shopping.

Roseanna said...

Congratulations! Yes, I like the sisal idea. Those puppies are something aren't they? Mine just ate my favorite comfy walking shoes...and trust me I do not need any excuses! Enjoy your new rug!!!

maureen said...

wow! good for you! see, blogging does pay. :) I think a rug is a good idea.
And that dog photo? Hilarious.

tale of many cities said...

congrats! and that sign w/ the pup.. DYING laughing here!!!

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

oh what a shame you lost your vintage rug. My guess is that your little puppy must be pretty embarrassed to see his pic up on the web with his embarrassing little "secret",LOL.

How lucky you won such an awesome prize. The rug sure looks beautiful.

The black clock behind is beautiful too.

Amber said...

Oh man, I've been so busy this week i've hardly looked at blogs. CONGRATS! That is an AWESOME prize! That rug will look great in your living room! And this post made me laugh out loud. Your dogs....oh my....so funny.

Stephanie said...

I love the rug you picked with your gift card. Woohoo. Lucky you, I hope your dog doesn't like sisal though.

The dog sign is so darn funny, I have a roommate for your dog, my dog likes to lay in his pee on his dog bed. They would make a great pair huh?
