PetPrints 3D has a winner for their “Super Pet Mom” contest.

Harley, Jax, and I were not involved in the selection process AT ALL. This was actually a good thing for me, because there was absodoodletutely no way I could have chosen just one!

Many thanks to PetPrints 3D for being such a doodlerific host. This is a very special gift to one very special “SuperPet Mom.”

While I would have loved for everyone to win a PetPrints 3D model that wasn’t possible, but know in our hearts you are all “Super Pet Mom’s” to us 🙂 …




Linda Szymoniak

I’m not sure I’d consider myself a “Super Pet Mom”, but my furbabies ARE super, so I guess I would qualify. I have four rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds and three cats (also rescued). I would have had to say I had five Coonhounds before this past Monday,when my deaf hound girl, Ran, passed. She was only five years old and was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder the beginning of the year. I adopted her just over five years ago from a small rescue in Southern Indiana. It took nearly 10 hours driving,round-trip, to pick her up. Adopting a deaf puppy had it’s ups and downs, but more ups than anything. She was amazing and most people couldn’t tell she was deaf unless I told them. My Ran was my special baby and I miss her more than words can express. I would really love a 3D model of her. I’m attaching a photo of her when she was just 4-5 months old.



Congratulations Linda! PetPrints 3D will contact you directly with specific instructions so they can begin creating your 3D model. #soexciting

    Congrats Linda on being randomly selected from a hat (we’re doodle-tastically old school like that)! You really are a super pet mom! I will be in contact with you via emails to get more photos and info. We look forward to working together and hearing your thoughts on the finished model! Thank you to everyone else for sharing your stories and entering the contest. We look forward to many more groovy contests and opportunities in the future!

      Thanks so much. I see the email in my inbox and will be responding in just a bit. I’m in tears. I miss my Ran so much and am thrilled that I’ll have a 3D figure of her. I would rather have her, but she’s gone. I’ll likely adopt another hound in a few months. I’d love to find another deaf Coonhound – I’m sure that’s what my Ran would want me to do, but she’ll likely be a regular Coonhound saved from a kill shelter. Thanks again for the great giveaway!

        Linda – I am “tickled to Doodle” that you’ve won:) I empathize and understand the hurt you feel, and I am so happy you will have one gorgeous 3D model of Ran in a few weeks. Please share a photo for all to see. Hope this makes your weekend! Have a wonderful Mothers Day “Super Pet Mom.”

    Yay for Linda, I’m so glad she won! What a beautiful dog her Ran was and we all know just how hard it is to lose one. Now she’ll have this wonderful statue to remember her by.

    Congrats to the winner! As soon as I saw that dog, I thought maybe her and Shiner could be cousins! Hehe… I’m sure the 3D version is going to look wonderful 🙂

      You’re right Ann, I looked at it again, and it could be one of Shiner’s relatives. Can’t wait to see the model when it’s finished. I’m sure it will be amazing!
