The winner of the Doberman Pinscher collar giveaway is Laura and her Doberman Dimitri. As a company that thrives on creativity, there is nothing we love more than to see instances of wildly creative thought take shape. We loved Laura's poetic approach to an otherwise simple contest entry and we can't wait to deck out her dobe in his very own Bolt Collar.
Here's her awesome entry:
I’m tall and dark , yet soft and sweet
Mom buys me scrummy bones to eat
Cute as a button and smart as a whip
I may look tough but I’d never nip.
I’ve learnt to open cupboard doors,
with intellect and agile claws
I’m the apple of their eye
Me- I much prefer apple pie
All that’s edible in fact,
Why should I keep the house intact?
I love to run, and leap and play
“Walkies” time defines my day!
Even though I sometimes try
To be the boss, I know that I
Am part of something bigger still
A family- that loves me and that will
Do anything to keep me close,
So, in August when they chose
To move abroad to newer lands
They briefly left me in kind hands
While they built a home for us
And carefully planned my exodus.
It’s 3 months since I’ve seen my pack
They just can’t wait to have me back
They went ahead to clear the way
But I’ll be there in thirty days!
Across the ocean and the sky
In a giant bird I soon will fly
I’m kinda scared, as one could guess
But I’m sure going to try my best
They miss me terribly I know
And they just can’t wait to show
Me all around our new abode
It’s been a long and trying road
Now comes the purpose of my tale
I may be just a neutered male
But I’d so like to look my best
On my International voyage West
New collar might be just the thing
To make me feel like a Dobie king
A jet-setter pooch, I soon will be
Won’t you please please please pick me?
I’d love to see my Mommy’s face
At how lovely I look, in this brand new place.
