The Backstory

I started breeding Catahoulas on HL, and when I moved to HP they followed me over here as well. I'm currently the breed ambassador for them, and own the highest pointed Catahoula in the game. While I really love these dogs, I feel like I've been breeding them for much longer than 12 generations. Therefore, I wanted to wrap up my time with the Catahoulas in a cool and different way. And, as the ambassaor for the breed I think this is an awesome idea! So here it goes...

What is this about a raffle?

I want to raffle off the generation 13 pup that will come from the last breeding of my Catahoula lines. Please see account 9484 - the parents are currently in 75ish private shows a week and have over 2 million points each. 
Each week I'll post a new activity for you to complete, along with the guidelines of how to complete it and how many raffle tickets you can get for completing each activity. All activities are to be turned in (either by message or forum post) by 11:59 PM (HP Time) on Mondays. You can still turn activities in late, but they won't count for raffle tickets. If I can count correctly, there will be 6 events total (but I may add bonus events!). I'll make a new heading for each week's activity to try to organize this forum post as best as possible.

What if I don't want to participate in activities?

No problem! I'll be posting activities each week, along with how to buy tickets each week. I want to be sure anyone who wants to enter can do so. HOWEVER, participating in the activities will get you the most tickets. You can totally buy tickets and participate in the activities I post. 

Where is the HPD going if I buy tickets?

The HPD from the raffle will be split up between two different players. First, half of the raffle pot will go with the person who wins the pup, as a way to make sure they have some funds to turn this into a project if they so choose. The second half will go to a "runner-up" who ideally will use the funds to start a Catahoula line of their own (but you don't have to!). 

IF ANYONE HAS QUESTIONS, PLEASE MESSAGE ME! I'll be checking the forum daily, but I naturally check my messages more often than the forums. 

Week 1

Purchasing Tickets:

Tickets are 1 mill each. You can purchase up to 5 tickets this week. Please send funds to 9484.


Complete this puzzle: https://www.jigsawplanet.com/?rc=play&pid=381064d232b9 

The fastest time will recieve 10 tickets, second fastest will recieve 9, third will recieve 8, etc. Each person who participates will recieve 1 ticket just for taking the time to do the puzzle.


I'm posting this a little early! You still have until tonight (7/6, 11:59 HP Time) to complete the week 1 activity.

Yes Con, you have one of the twins from this line that came from Ivan! 

And thanks Phism! I've been breeding them for so long that I didn't just want to end them and be done. I like closure haha.

The list of entrants is updated! I wanted to add: Everyone will get their participation ticket when they complete the activity, but actual ticket standings will be updated each Monday when the activity is closed so I can look at them for fastest time and/or accuracy.

FYI, I absolutely stink at virtual jigsaw puzzles, but saving this spot to either submit my "fastest" time or remind myself to buy some tickets. xD

EDIT: I think I have to bow out, peach. So sorry!
