    Here Are The 24 Prizes You Could Win Worth Over $6204!

    Grand Prize – Eligibility: APSE Members ($629 Value)

    The iPad 2 could easily become the professional pet sitter’s dream come true.

Use it to go ‘paperless,’ stay organized and grow your pet sitting business in style. Winner gets a 16GB iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G in their choice of white or black. As one online reviewer puts it: “It’s essentially a giant iPod touch, a movie and music player, a photo display device, and a rich e-book reader. And as you can see, along with the camera, the iPad2 also has HDMI capability, which is what allows us to get the pictures and video off the iPad and onto your TV, computer, whatever. So really, the sky is the limit with how much you can do with this little device!” http://www.apple.com/ipad/
