For the last two months, all of you having been finding Wynston across the USA (and Canada!) on Christmas advertising in your local PetSmart stores. It’s been amazingly fun to see my boy in SO many cities and states. I enjoyed all of the selfies and excited posts when someone new found Wynston in their store. It never got old! Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for a recap of all the places he was spotted, and I picked our random $25 PetSmart gift card winner 🙂
This is my favorite time of year. Not only do I love the holiday season but it’s finally cool enough to get outside and enjoy the weather! Perfect timing, since Wynston just got his cast off. I decided to celebrate Wynston’s cast coming off by taking him on some new adventures this weekend. He still can’t walk full distances, so our adventures were mostly in the stroller. It was a super fun weekend, nonetheless, and we got some great photos!
It finally happened. After nine weeks of X-rays and 11 vet appointments, my son got his cast taken off! The journey wasn’t easy or enjoyable, and I’m SO glad it’s over. Wynston appeared to become depressed toward the end of these nine weeks, so needless to say we were both ready to get back to normal life.
Going as far back as my memory will possibly allow me, I remember my dad always giving me “history lessons” growing up. He would tell me some random historic fact or story about who knows what…all the time. It was constant. Ironic that I would end up with a Bachelor’s degree in history and culture? I suppose my dad just had that big of an impact on me, despite my eye rolling and giggling as he’d teach me about history throughout my childhood. Secretly, I loved it. My dad was, and still is, a history buff and that’s where I got it from. I love history and everything that it teaches us. I guess you’d say it’s no surprise that my endless history knowledge would inspire my heart dog’s name. Let me share with you the origin of “Wynston.”
After two years of modeling for PetSmart, Wynston finally appeared on store advertising in November 2016! Although I had seen him online and in the PetSmart Black Friday ad, nothing was quite as exciting as seeing him in the store. Turns out, Wyn is gracing us with his presence again this year in PetSmart retail locations in North America. So far he’s been spotted in two countries and over a dozen states, but I want to see how far he truly reaches! I’m giving everyone who sees Wynston in their local PetSmart store a chance to win a $25 gift card because it’s like “Where’s Waldo?” fun, except BETTER!
