If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen this last week:

So today’s the day! I’m going to give away 3 adorable BLOOP plush dolls by Merrymakers! I’ll choose the 3 winners randomly in two weeks on Monday, July 11 (because we all need something good on a Monday).

Here’s how to enter:

  • Review the picture book BLOOP anywhere online
  • Post anything about #BLOOP on social media (← using hashtag)

You receive one giveaway entry for each social media post or review. Just leave ONE COMMENT PER ENTRY METHOD below. All you have to do is say, “Shared BLOOP on Facebook” or “Reviewed BLOOP on Goodreads”. Remember, make one comment below per entry method. So if you did two things, that’s two comments and thus two entries.

You can share anything you’d like about the book. Post the cover, a brief endorsement, the premise, your favorite doggo from the story, a photo of your doggo reading the book—anything.

(This is Kendall, Jyn Hall’s sweet pupper.)

Make sense? Fabulous!

Bloop is wagging his tail just for you!

(Look at how curlicue cute it is!)

Also, the Bloop plush is SAFE FOR ALL AGES—there are no small buttons or anything that a young child could remove and choke on. All details are sewn.

Good luck!

Thanks to Merrymakers, Inc. for the plushies!

Thank you, everyone, for your outstanding doggo photos! If we had to choose based on appearance alone, it would be a tough call. We loved Bear’s homemade floofers and Library Dog’s regal aura. But we picked our two winners randomly with, and we are pleased to announce them: KENDALL and WILLOW!

Kendall (Jyn Hall)

Willow (Lyn Jekowsky)

Mike Boldt will BLOOPIFY them both! Congratuations to owners Jyn Hall and Lyn Jekowsky! I will touch base with you on Twitter!

And now, here’s a gallery of all the BLOOP-lovin’ doggos! What good boys and girls!!!
