Benny's Buddies - Helping our Furend

Did you know that (Yup!) we're Benny's Buddies too? Benny (& Lily) have so many furends in Blogville that we can't even count them on our 8 little paws.

Our handsome little furend Benny is Fighting Like A Frenchie because he has liver cancer.

If you don't know Benny, stop over to see him at He loves to meet new furends.

Hang in there Benny, we're here to help! Starting today we are gonna hold a fun contest in your honor.

OK, here are the rules.....

The contest runs from today until July 20th. NO entries will be allowed after midnight EST on the 20th.

All you have to do is leave a comment on our blog on how many M&M's you think are in this mason jar. (They are raspberry and mint M&M's. Did you know they are different sizes? Got you thinking now.....)

One guess per household please. Easy right?

The one who guesses the correct number (or closest to it) without going over will be declared the winner.

And, in case of a tie... Well, we'll just have to have our Daddy eat a few of the M&M's. Ha, ha, ha, ha..... (keep reading.....)

Now you may be asking.... What do I win?

Are you sitting down for this? NOTHING! What? Hey Mom, what the h*ll do you mean they win nothing? That just doesn't seem fair.

OK, uh-huh, right, sure, good idea, got it!

Mom said that this contest is to help our furend Benny because his cancer treatments are really, really expensive. So what we are going to do is donate $.30 (that's 30 cents) for every M&M in the mason jar directly to Benny. Instead of having everyone donate money, we're gonna do it for ya! (Of course, you can always donate to Benny if you like.) The money will be donated in the Winner's name and ours.

So instead of giving the winner a prize for the correct guess, we thought the money we would have spent on a prize package would better benefit helping Benny directly. We are certain that all of you will understand that. (Plus, Mommy always says "It's the golden rule..... He who has the gold makes the rules.")

It may be a lot, it may be a little, it may be right inbetween. What we do know is, the money will be donated to Benny with love.

We're here for you Benny and are ready to help you fight the evil C.

OK everyone, get out your measuring tapes, get out your scales, get out your calculators and get ready to guess the number of M&M's.




Click on COMMENTS below and leave us your answer. Take your time and don't rush to guess. (You can leave your guess on any of our posts between now and the 20th.)

And if by chance you are new furends,  please leave us a note on how to find you along with your guess so that we can give you kudos for being the winner.

Please help spread the word to your furends.

The winning guess and total amount to be donated to Benny will be announced after the contest closes on July 20th.

This is gonna be fun! Let's all gather together to help Benny Fight Like A Frenchie!

We love you Benny!

Lily Belle, Muffin and Mommy Kim

Now just where do you think we should hide the mason jar so Grandpa Bob doesn't find it and eat all those M&M's?


  1. Okay, first our mommy said she never heard of raspberry M&M's and now has to go out and find some. Mommy has also helped us with our guess and she say we should guess 150 M&M's in the jar. Now the last thing is that mommy thinks if we win the guessing contest that since we live so close to each other you should give the filled jar to her ;-) . In case you didn't know M&M's are one of her favorite snacks. That's all we have to say for now.

  2. Thanks so much for your guess! Oh, we didn't know that Mom's favorite is M&M's. We will definitely think about bringing the jar over butt first we've gotta play keep-away with Grandpa Bob. His nose is already working a mile a minute around here trying to find them.

  3. OMD OMD THIS is WONDERFUL..... It will be sooooo fun to see what everybuddy ELSE guesses... We are going to put a LINK to you on a special post fur Tomorrow. OK???
    When WE want to hide stuffs from MOM.... we put it with the Cleaning stuffs... SHE NEVER LOOKS THERE!!!

    OKAY now..... here is the WINNING guess... there are eggsactly 87 m&m's in that jar!!!

  4. Oursa guess is 125 M & M's in that mason jar.
    Much Luvums,
    The Slimmer Puggums
    George, Gracie, Toby, Lily, & Mimi

  5. OMD, that is a lovely idea. We are gonna guess 98 M&Ms in that jar. Now, give us some!

  6. What a fantastical fundraising contest thingy! Somehow I had a feeling that Frankie and Ernie would guess 87, on account of what a fabulous number it is. I guess eleventy thousand! No wait, I wants to change it. I guess 111.


  7. Lily & Muffin this is such a pawsome guys are the best! Momz sez she's terrible at this kind of game, but she'll play and guess 149...since there's more than four and I can only count as many as I have paws I'll have to go with her answer

  8. 155 we say but we are pretty useless. Have a serene Sunday Lily & Muffin and peeps and great idea.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. Grandpa guesses 200.

    What a wonderful idea. Thank you for doing this! You are such the sweetest of the down lows I know!


  10. Wow, what a fun way to celebrate for Benny! This is a great idea and I love that the money helps our buddy. I'm gonna guess 72 M&M's in the jar and I'm very glad my Mom can't get her paws on it or else it would be 0 in the jar! BOL She's going all squeeeee to hear there are raspberry and mint ones. Thanks so much for hosting this!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  11. Lily Belle and Muffin. OMDS if those were here they would have been gone before the lid was sealed!!
    You might have to glue on that lid to keep Grandpa Bob from eating them.

    Mom and I guesstimate there are 50.5 M&Ms in that jar cause we are sure someone bit in to at least one before the lid was shut
    Hugs Madi your bFFF great game girls

  12. Great job, girls! Hm, Mom and I guess...108! (because I was born on the 10th month, on the 8th)

  13. Raspberry M&M's? Who knew there was such a thing??? I'm gonna say there are 184.5 cuz I agree that grandpa mighta had a half before the jar was hidden!

  14. We say 172. We think this is a brilliant idea! Lee and Phod

  15. Howdy Lily Belle, Muffin and Mum. We guess 153 cause that's mum's age (minus the 100) ahahahahaha. What a fabo competition. Thanks for having it for our friend Benny. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
