Those Lucky Dogs Who Win At PCH

Like millions of other Americans, the PCH Prize Patrol loves dogs. Danielle can even look at the ugliest dog and say “Aww.  So cute.”  And for those of you who follow her on Facebook, you know that her lucky dogs are pictured on her PCH Prize Patrol Fan Page just as much as she is.

Lucky Dogs

So we are always happy to meet the lucky dogs whose masters and mistresses win Big Checks in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.  And the dogs seem mighty happy to meet us too – probably because, come chow-time, there will be some extra treats coming their way.  Maybe some nice juicy steak instead of dry kibble.

(Cats – well, they are another story.  When we arrive they just yawn, leave the room and find another place to sleep.)

How disappointed we were to realize, after we moved on, that we didn’t get to meet the dogs who belong to our most recent Big Check recipients, Elise Gutierrez from Louisiana and Eric Schroeder from Texas.  We could hear the dogs barking but, alas, they were penned up and out of sight.  Maybe Elise and Eric remembered some advice we imparted years ago in a PCH national radio commercial. It went something like this:

Tie up the dog, Junior,” a mother in the 30-second radio-drama told her son.  “I don’t want him scaring the Prize Patrol away!”  The announcer then reminded listeners, “Once you enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, you better be prepared to win!

I kind of doubt that Elise and Eric contained their dogs because they remembered that ad or were expecting the Prize Patrol to knock on the door.  Indeed, both winners were stunned, speechless and totally unprepared for our arrival.  Although they had entered our sweepstakes many times with lots of hope, they said they never really expected us to show up – with roses, balloons, champagne, cameras and – tah dah – a Big Check.  But they kept entering, and kept hoping, and — lo and behold — we arrived with the news You are a winner in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!”

By the way, Elise and Eric are very happy with their $1 Million and $10,000 prizes – and so are their dogs.  But YOU could win even more: $1 Million A Year for Life on April 30th!

So – to echo the optimistic sentiment of that old radio commercial – “Enter! And be prepared to win!”

Wishing you the best of luck.

I love my doggies… they are big and have become outside dogs. Wish they had a back yard full of grass and a continual flowing pond to splash around in. They are both 10 years old. Yes, should I win, I would be glad to introduce them to the Prize Patrol. Their names are Sable Chocolate and Sandy Vanilla. If I win they will be wearing tuxes instead of patches.. :)

Hi! I have a dog and a cat. They are not friendly, they’re older and set in their ways. I think my dogs sight is going, and she may make a puddle or two, but she is part of the family and still brings us joy. If you ignore her, don’t act scared or suspicious, or make sudden movements (play hit…)she’s fine. I would love to see her reaction if I won! She’s always the first one to the door. I have to tell her to get back so I can open it! She may run outside when I open the door, but will come back when I call her (hopefully..I think her hearing is going or she wants me to think that). The good thing is I can pick her up and bring her back in! If you had come 20+ years ago, I had a german shepard and a rottelier (forgive the spelling) that would let you drive up but if my kids were outside, would not let you out of your vehicle! Is that why you never came? Haha!My cat will probably go to another room and yes, lay down! Excitement isn’t her thing but if you ask do you want a “treat” they will both come running!

Oh I really do hope to win through PCH! If the Prize Patrol showed up they would be greeted with warm southern hugs and lots of kisses from my teacup poodle Rudy!!! He loves everyone!! :) and he would be just as excited as I would be if we won a PCH Sweepstakes!! He knows that he is spoiled, and for good reason, he is the best dog ever(of course I’m slightly biased)!!

We Hope to finally meet you all soon!!!
***fingers crossed & praying***

Yes we have a black Lab named Shadow (sort 0f). My son when moved from Montgomery to Birmingham to an apartment. So, he asked if we could keep Shadow until they get a house. It should be only a few months according to my son. Well a few months has turned into 4* years. My son and his family come to visit but Shadow stays with me. So Shadow is mine. My son said I have spoiled Shadow. I don’t think there is anything wrong by giving Shadow his favorite snacks. What can I say, Shadow has a special place in my heart and in our home.

I love looking at the pictures of Danielle’s dogs! We adopted a rescue dog a year and a half ago. She has a long story from her home state Georgia but now resides with us in Wisconsin. It was a big change for her the first winter. We love her so much and are thinking of adopting a second. Heidi (our dog) and our two cats (Pearl and Abbey) and four granddaughters (Katie, Rachel, Hannah and Emma) and LeRoy and I would love to see you come to our door! The weather is still cold but we would give you a very WARM welcome.
But to whomever wins….many congrats!

I have two beautiful cats just turned 8 in April. They are pretty friendly and can get annoying if people don’t want to be pestered. If you don’t pet them they might get real unhappy, of course don’t pet them a lot, cats don’t like that. They also do a sniff test either to chew or sit on an object owed by a visitor.

Hi Dave,

I have been prepared for many years to win!!! And can’t wait to have you visit & listen to my 2 little guard dogs… Cozmo & Daisy !! Cozmo is a havanese 9 years old that LOVES company coming to the door but now has become more vocal since we adopted Daisy a 4 year old ( we think) ttoodle.. she came from a hoarding situation so is still a bit timid with strangers..so now they both just make a LOT OF NOISE when the doorbell rings…

Again , we are always looking forward to your knock on the door!!!!

Steven Scott said...

Hi Dave,

I’ve been entering for several years and it would be a dream come true to win Publisher Clearing House (PCH).

I would love to start a new nonprofit organization called, ‘Kids Are Magic.’ This new nonprofit organization will focus on kids that are currently in need of medicine, medical equipment, provide dream vacations with kids that currently have Aids, Cancer, etc.

I use to think that winning PCH was the only way to be happy. But I realized something amazing over the past year or so. I am already a Winner. A winner at life. I have a great wife, 3 wonderful kids, a house, a job (temp job). So, if I think deep down, I am already a winner, at the Game of Life!

I hope that the person that you visit to “knock on the door” will do lots of positive stuff to their family, friends, and to other people that need help. But also, we all need to realize that we don’t have to win PCH to feel like a winner. We are already winners.

I have 2 of the best cats in the world waiting with me for the prize patrol to show up at my door in Tampa Florida- a trip down memory lane for Todd!! My eldest is 18 years old and my youngest 15 months old and they have been begging my husband and I to finally be you’re April 30th lifetime winners. They want to see us keep our home, be debt free and have reliable transportation to their check ups at the Vet! Well, maybe not the vet. They want us to help our parents have easy retirements and a special wish for me; finally finish my post breast cancer reconstruction and have a life that doesn’t include surgery, physical therapy but most of all for me (and my husband) to be truly happy and free of financial worries for ourselves and our family. Oh yeah- they have one demand- a brand new cat tree!! I hope you’ll be visiting us here in Tampa Florida on April 30th!! Lets make tour 2 babies happy!

Yes I have my big baby here with me, I swear I love my dog, when we adopted him 7 years ago from a shelter in NC, he was already named Volker, we didn’t change it because he had papers of his shots record. I also adopted 3 cats, I really love my babies; We also have 19 chickens, 5 were recently adopted, they were in awful shape, they are just now getting their feathers back. They are very content here. I really wish people would not get animals if they can’t at least give them the love and care they need. Animals are so relaxing to us, we really love having them around. Can’t wait to introduce you to my family, and my animals.Kiss my Forever Friend Richy, and my big beautiful square Lucky Leader, and of course, I’m looking forward to meeting the Prize Patrol Elite team! Please don’t forget my Prize Patrol Pen!

Try traveling down the roads with 1 yellow nape amazon parrot that talks up a storm, and 3 cats that the bird calls to her cage then does a wounded dog barking. Thank god for the invention of the flyswatter. They all know to get out of the feet & to pipe down, lol. But i must say the bird is a real trip. When a semi pass me up she will say ” Big Truck, Big Truck and in truck stops she never shuts up, geezes. But here i have an out side cat that adopted me because she knows i will feed and water her as i was raised to do from the time my parents built there campground in S.E. Wis. We were 1/4 mile away from the state park and lake and the ranger was always bringing by the strays that people left behind, so we had 5 acre’s penned in with dogs, cats, ponies, and a cow. And yes we fed them all and anyone that wanted to take one to a good home they could. So i enjoy all pets. Ya all take care & please be safe, Luann
