Lucky Winner! Lucky Dog!

Patches, a lucky dog, greeted the Prize Patrol in their recent visit to surprise a new lucky winner.

On Friday morning, December 16, Linda Knisley and her husband Gene were hosting visitors from the cold north in their sunny Florida home when they got a phone call telling them a floral delivery was on the way to their door.

“Flowers?  From whom?” Linda wondered, then figured maybe it was an early Christmas gift from someone.

A few minutes later there were flowers all right!  A huge bouquet of red roses.  And an early Christmas gift?  Yes indeed!  A Big Check for $10,000.00!

You see, Linda was the lucky winner of PCH’s Online Holiday Shopping Spree prize – personally delivered by America’s most welcome drop-in guests, the PCH Prize Patrol.

“I can’t believe this!” Linda cried as she stood shaking at the door.  “And look at me!  I’m not even dressed!”  Actually she looked perky and bright, in a purple tee shirt with the message “Sail Away” on it.  And that’s what she plans to do with some of her winnings: sail away on a cruise – something she and Gene have wanted to do for ages.

While the Knisleys, their guests and neighbors marveled that what was happening before them was something they had previously seen only on TV, Patches, their beloved 8-year old shih-tzu, stood happily by, wagging her tail and realizing that she was one lucky dog.

Patches was just the latest in a long history of lucky dogs who have greeted the Prize Patrol at the door.  Yes, there have been barks and even the menacing look of some pit bulls; but we have not been bitten once.  That’s because the dogs recognize that their masters and mistresses are ecstatically happy – so they are happy too – just as you would be if you won.

So, enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes – not just for yourself but for your pet (if you have one).  Believe me, your dog or cat or bird or hamster or iguana will appreciate the bonus treats they get as a result of your winning; they might even love you more.

Wishing you the best of luck,

Dave Sayer

Prize Patrol Ambassador

P.S.  If you have a lucky, talented, or fashionable pet dog you think has what it takes to be a Celebrity Canine in this year’s New Yorkie Runway Doggie Fashion Show, there’s still time to register for the New Yorkie Runway Auditions.  PCH is a sponsor of this event that raises money for Angel On A Leash foundation, a non-profit organization that creates therapy dog programs for hospitals and institutions.  It’s a fun event that benefits a good cause.

Dave, I wrote you a letter that if my kids were outside alone, my 2 big dogs wouldn’t let you out of the vehicle. In 20 years things have changed. My dog is small, in the house, with a cat. The dog is still very protective, my son is a senior 6’2, 320lbs but she needs to protect him and my other son, who is a marine. She’s a Jack Russell Fiest, 8 years old, and yes she does know “treat”

    Hi Gail,

    Age is not a factor in winner selection. The reason you must enter your date of birth is to make sure that you are over 14 years of age as stated by the Official Rules. We have surprised young winners like Scott Kent ($10,000.00), KJ MacAlister ($10,000,000.00), Natalie Bostleman ($1,000,000.00), and Zakiya Green ($15,000.00). PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!

I would like you call me and say” something you ordered is coming now and we’re waiting for your signature”. I would not remember what is it but it’s sound like wondering and interesting.

Since I met my husband, he’d never give me a rose even a single one.

Linda and Patches, you’re lucky! congratulation!

I would like to get a beautiful floral from PCH it is more valuable for me!

Congratulations to the winners! I can’t even imagine being so lucky….especially of the $5,000. a week for life – WOW! I often joke with my husband and tell him I’m going to be the next winner….and then I ask him what he would do if I really did win! When I think of how short life really is…it would really be like a dream to win money like this and be able to enjoy life fully before being retired and too old to enjoy things very much since they keep raising the retirement age.

I would love to win, but I am happily excited for whomever does. If I won I would share the wealth and of course pay off all of my bills and build our dream home and have money set aside for my six children’s future. I will enter every day I know someday I will win!
