BuildASign Giveaway!

The super nice people from BuildASign.com contacted me about their site. So, naturally I checked it out to make sure I could put a Tucker stamp of approval on it. And boy do they have lots to choose from! You can get a specially made bumper sticker, signs, decals, window clings, etc. The list goes on and on.

The very friendly Megan offered to give some samples to some of my followers and Momma worked with Megan to design a Pet Fire Safety Window Cling! Guess what, it's got a Dane on it!!! So, you could go right over and design your own with your breed and name and everything. These are much better quality then the chinsy ones my Momma previously bought at the pet store and BuildASign has pretty good prices too, some items even have free shipping.

(Just use a sharpie to fill in the # of pets you have on the window cling or a special message - like "Dog in crate in master bedroom).

Hmm... Directions on how to apply... seems pretty easy...

So, since the nice Megan sent 12 window clings to me I am keeping two and offering the rest up to you guys. That means the first 10 followers to do the following will get a fabulous window cling to help protect your pet in case of a fire.
1 - Visit BuildASign.com and check out all they have to offer
2 - Go test all the smoke detectors in your house.
3 - Leave a comment saying you want a cling and you did, or promise to do, step 1 and 2.
4 - Email me at tuckergreatdaneATgmail.com with your snail mail address so I can send your cling to you.

Hopefully there is never an emergency, but the nice folks at BuildASign.com want us to be prepared just in case. Thank you!


  1. Hehehehe...they had room to fit a Dane on da cling.
    Mum has looked fur these things everywheres but didn't want a sticker and hers didn't likes da pet store ones eithers (hers kinda picky can you tells?)


  2. We have one of these on our storm glass door just in case, I do like how you can customize these though, thanks for sharing!

  3. Haroooo!!! Mama says we want a clingy thingy!! I will force Mama to look at the website and I know she has checked the smoking thingys because they go OFF when she burns the hooman food!!

  4. I checked out their site. We askshually tested all of our smoke detectors two weeks ago coz when me and mom commed home from shopping at Petsmart something woz beeping so mom went around changing all the batteries and still beeping. Turned out to be the carbon monixide detector so she went a gotted a noo one coz it woz older than 5 years anyways. This do be furry timely coz at this furry moment helicoptahs be flying ofur our house coz of a big fire just .6 miles away! It woz on CNN this morning so it be a bad fire! http://bit.ly/g1rMRy

  5. Tucker,

    Dis is such a good idea we wants a clingy thingy too. Mom went over to da site and looked at all da stuffs dey got, her really likes "My Road to Success is Under Construction" :) Dad is replacing all our smoke detectors cuz dey is old.

    Woofs and Licks,

  6. Awesome giveaway, Tucker! I just love the attention given to pet safety! It's soooooooo important! Our mail in dirtville is so bad, that I don't participate in things that require real mail service.

    Happy tails!

  7. Love it! Such an awesome idea!

  8. Megan is a doll. Great site too. The next step after posting signs is a doggy door. A little tougher when you have giant dogs or stubborn cats, but most of the time its a good thing and gives an escape route.

  9. This is such a great idea... Recently a dog that was adopted out to a wonderful family in OC California was left at home during a rain storm while the mom ran to pick up the kids from school. The house caught on fire and burnt down and their beloved boxer was inside. I am sure a sign like this could have helped!!!! Thank you for sharing!

  10. This is a great giveaway! I would love to participate and have often thought about getting one of those signs... but what would I put on it? The number changes from week to week around here, and sometimes it seems there are too many to count... or at least too many to admit to on a sign on the front of the house. :-) I think these are awesome for most people with pets though - especially since they have a Great Dane on them! :-)

  11. Oh this seems really cool! I'll email you just incase you don't have 10 people yet!
    ps. my mom did end up getting an adapter thing! Of course, she found one after she ordered a new cord! Ugh... moms. What are you gonna do with them?

  12. Hi Tucker! What a great giveaway. We did something with Megan and BuildASign, too, and we can hardly wait to show everybuddy what it is! Don't they have great stuff?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  13. We did both of those things, but it looks like we are too late to get one! Thanks for letting us know about this company, though.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  14. What a grrrreat thingy. Might be a super thingy to have fur... our next (Sadly I fear there will be need) Helping Paw Fund Raiser.

    Would you PLEASE bring this up... If and When that occurs??? It would be a good money maker fur sure!!!!
    Thanks in advance fur that.. PeeS... I sent you an impawtant email about how you have your email addy posted here. Please read it.

  15. I wonder if they have any with snowmen on it?


  16. I think the window clings are all claimed at this time. I have emails out to some of you about your addresses.

    Thank you!

  17. That is a super idea. We wondered about Build A Sign - we were contacted by them, but the Momster slways wonders about those emails. This looks like a good one. There was a fire last night not too far from us. House was destroyed. Three of six cats were saved:(

  18. Hey Tucker

    That is a cool beans sticker! We'd love a sticker! We went and checked out the sign website and it is neat-o! They even gots basset stuffs! All our smoke detectors work- Momma tested out the other day when she burnt some cookies! Hehehehe!

    Droopy, Smiley, and Kayah

  19. That is a pretty pawsome idea! Mom is gonna have to get a sign for me (in my crate) and check out what other signs she can get :)
    Mamma just changed all the batteries in the smoke detectors. She does it 2x a year (clocks up, clocks back-it's her reminder). Smarts for remindin people!!

  20. Excellent PSA, Tucker! We have pet stickers on our doors, too. We also have a doggie door we could get out, although mama says when there's a scary fire most animals hide in the house where they normally feel safe [like the bedroom or a crate], so the fireman rescue is actually more important than the doggie door. We'll check out the website. Might need to update our stickers with a new model.

  21. I think that is so nice of you to share with your furends!! (and I giggled too when I saw da Dane on your cling!) hehehe. Well done Tucker!

  22. Hey Tucker!
    Wow, this sign is a great idea! I'll check out this site. In the meantime, I'll ask Mom & Dad to put something in a window at our house so no one forgets about me. Great post and we all appreciate the info.

  23. Hi Tucker - I just found you through Shawnee's blog and so glad I did. I'm follower number 100!! WooT!
    Great idea on the fire alert stickers - I think I'll have to get one from you. We used to live in Portland, and after seeing your pics of your beautiful boy on the edge of the water there, I'm feeling "homesick"...
    Check us out if you get a chance - http://www.arwenspack.blogspot.com/
    Thanks and I'll be stopping by!
