Another big prize announcement

Our second "high-value" prize for Blogathon is a scarf.  You might be thinking, "But a scarf isn't that exciting."  However, if the scarf is made out of your own fluff, then it's VERY exciting!  That's right, a special SOS-SRF volunteer has offered to take up to 6 ounces of some pup's fur and spin it into yarn and then knit a scarf with it.  You can see some pictures on how this works on the SOS-SRF website.  If you're the lucky winner, you'll receive instructions on how to gather up your fluff and send it in to get it made into a scarf.


Now, we don't have a Steve and Kat fluff scarf, so we turned to our friends in Florida, the River Hill Pack, for some advice.  Their mom has a sweater made of husky fluff.  Here's what they had to say about the sweater:
It is VERY lightweight, definitely under a pound, but thick.  It's incredibly soft to the touch (imagine husky undercoat) and the closest I can come to for texture is furry cashmere, but it can't really be compared to anything else, it's very unique and very luxurious.
They also said that the sweater is very warm, but all us huskies could have predicted that!

So if you would like to win a scarf of your fluff, donate today!  The rules are the same as the rules with the cool tote bag from the Ao4.  Anyone who donates $50 or more will be entered into the drawing.

Thanks for your support and 4 days until Blogathon!

Such a creative prize. But I'm concerned about the husky sweater in Florida. Momma tells it's warm there and they don't need sweaters there.

If Huffle wins, I'll have Mom brush Ammy so she can have a pretty scarf! Ha roo! (Don't tell Ammy!)
This is really great. I remember how cool you two looked in scarves when you flew your airplane - maybe I could win this husky fur scarf for myself!

Wooos & a-rooos, what a great prize!!! Humom has been going to town on us with that Magick brush, and has a whole box of undercoat fur saved up.... maybe we'll be furry lucky & win this prize! It gets furry cold & windy here and she look great with a husky scarf like that -- we'd all match when we went out walking! Ha roo-roo!
