Return To The Doghouse And JC Penney Giveaway

jcpenney doghouse

It was a year ago now that I first learned about a funny video called The Doghouse. It was about men and the poor choices some of them make about the gifts they give the women in their lives. Well, JC Penney has come out with the second in the series – Return To The Doghouse, and an interactive website to go with it.

This year’s video focuses more on the review board and trial. Check it out!

The Return To The Doghouse  site also allows users to build a case against their bad gift-giver filled with written statements and imported photos, videos and witness testimony as evidence of the bad gift-giving. In short, you can put your guy into the dog house. Come on, you know you want to put your other half in there for something. Go ahead! If you missed the first video, be sure to click on life inside and you can watch it.


ONE winner will receive a $100.00 JC Penney gift card.

  5. OMG that video had me laughing so hard! Too funny! And even better are the case reviews on the website. Did you see how much detail they put into the ones submitted? I love it! LOL

    Ok, sorry, onto the giveaway.

    To get out of the doghouse, my husband could give me a clean house! Or fix any of the 100 broken things he has promised to fix! If it has to be a monetary item, I would settle for a steam mop. I want one so bad! Not very romantic I know, but very practical! But of course, he would have to clean with it to fully get out of the doghouse. lol

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  6. There’s a laptop on my Christmas list. It’s ambitious of me to ask, but he comes through I won’t be able to put him in the dog house for months!!

  7. hubby could get me a Black Hills Gold Diamond Accent Rose Ring (or any gold or diamond jewelry, I’m not picky!)

  8. i think i might consider it if he got me the Everlon™ Diamond Knot Pendant! of course we have absolutely no money right now so it might be worse if he did buy it!

  9. My husband always gets the perfect gift so he’s never been in the doghouse. I’d say whatever he’s planning will keep him out! 🙂

  10. Well, my dog never bought me a for real engagement ring, but I wouldn’t want him to buy it because I told him so I want him to buy it because he wanted too.

  11. I would love to receive the Enhanced Diamond Pendant 3/8 CT.T.W. That would certainly get him out of the doghouse!! Thanks!

  12. Too funny! LOL! DENIED!! My husband is already giving me the gift I asked for, it’s a blender/food processor combo! He will definitely stay out of the doghouse! Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. My “dog” could get me DAZZLING DEAL! Created Blue & White Sapphire Set

    It would buy him a few days on the couch instead! LOL!

  14. We don’t give each other Christmas gifts and he’s rarely in the dog house, but we did just buy a new home so I’d love to have a new sofa.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. The Cultured Freshwater Pearl and Smoky Quartz Earrings might get him out of the doghouse!

  16. I gave up on Jim getting me any gifts ,its a lost cause but its ok because he treats me good and thats what is important. I would love the Bulova® Women’s Black Diamond-Accent Watch,maybe Santa will be good to me

  17. My husband could give me a diamond pendant.That would definitely get him out!

  18. Well… I do like the Peugeot Women’s Goldtone Crystal Cuff Watch. If he got me that, I might reconsider… 🙂

  19. My other half is no longer with us as he passed away from Kidney Cancer. He managed to get in the dog house a few times. Like the year he bought me a Cleveland Indians Door mat.. that’s right Door mat. I may purchase the Ruby & Diamond Accent Heart Pendant Sterling Silver necklace. I really like it.. has birthstone and mine.
    Thanks for the chance

    By the way the silly door mat.. still have it and cherish it.
    Happy HOlidays!

  20. A nice dinner out would be fine with me! Of course, the
    Everlon™ Diamond Knot Pendant 1/6 CT. T.W. 14K wouldn’t hurt, either! 🙂


  21. We don’t usually get each other gifts, so anything would be great. Top of the list? A new camera! I’d forgive almost anything for that.

  22. I subscribe by email and love to see “you” in my inbox!

  23. THe Diamond JOurney necklace would be amazing! My husband always waits til teh last minute and ends up giving me cash that always gets spent elsewhere. OR he tried a few times to buy me clothing…the kind his MOTHER would wear! THE last jewelry he bought me was over 10 years ago and was a beautiful set of hoop channel set baby diamonds that I had to SHOW him in an ad, TELL the kids to remind him, and then hint and hint about. My daughter sadly bent one of them and I cant wear them anymore.
    I DID try to sign him up for the doghouse but coulnt get it to go through. He is a sweet giftgiver compared to my ex…HE gave me a stepladder while I was 8 months pregnant in order to wash the outside windows. Wonder why we got divorced.!!!!

  24. I’d love the Diamond Bracelet 1/2 CT. T.W. 10K! A definite way out of the dog house.

  25. This is a tough one… seriously! I feel like anything can and will be used against me. — LOL! I’d be happy if he could surprise me with a gift like he did one time. One time he bought me a pair of ruby earrings, and I know they cost him much more than I thought he’d ever spend on one thing for me… unless of course, he were to get me a dual-bag vacuum. 🙂 So, to get out of the doghouse, he’d need to get jewelry… the earrings were awesome!

  26. OK this would do it for me – Aquamarine & White Topaz Ring.
    You get out of the doghouse!

  27. My husband would get out of the doghouse if he just bought me anything for Christmas! I always have to buy and wrap my own gift.

  28. I’d love it if my husband gave me a gift certificate to go out dinner. Not any place expensive or fancy. Just a night I wouldnt have to cook and we could get out together. Thanks!

  29. I know I have no sense of humor. but the video did remind me that I want the Igloo returned since you are not using it any longer.
