Here's the next puzzle, are you ready?! Enjoy! :D

Rules:

1. You may only guess one letter at a time.

2. After you have guessed a letter, you must wait for another player to guess a letter before you can go again.

3. The host of the game responding to a guess does not count as a turn. Should you choose a letter, then receive a response from the member host, you must wait for the next member to guess a letter.

4. One point will be given out for each correct letter, 2 points for vowels.

5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.

6. If you wish to guess the puzzle, send it to me via Pet Talk personal messenger. This is accessible via the 'PM' or 'Profile' buttons on any of my posts. Do NOT post it on the forum. If you wish to guess a letter, post it on the forum.

7. You must have submitted a correct letter to submit your solution. Unlike letters, if you submit a wrong solution, you are disqualified from continuing in that puzzle.

8. The player who correctly guesses the phrase wins the game. If no one has guessed it correctly after six misses, then the player with the most points wins the game.

And here is what you win...you get to create the next puzzle. (Should you win the game, and do not care to host the next puzzle, you may pass your puzzle play to the member with the next highest points)

Here's the puzzle.

I thought so! and yes, I think it's a good idea to use uppercase for all letters, they're so much easier to see. ;)

Any guesses? :D

Points:

Delidog 23 Es = 46, 9 Is = 18, 15 Os = 30, 18 Ts = 18, 14 Hs = 14, 10 Ns = 10, 14 Rs = 14, 2 Ds = 2, 9 Ls = 9
Points = 161

Ann 14 As = 28, 4 Us = 8, 5 Ss = 5,
Points = 41

Niina 3 Bs = 3, 4 Cs = 4, 3 Ks = 3, 5 Ys = 5, 1 V = 1, 4 Ws = 4
Points = 20

Looks like this now:

Your cat will never threaten your -o-ularity by barking at three in the -orning. He won't attack the -ail-an or eat the dra-es, although he -ay cli-b the dra-es to see how the roo- looks -ro- the ceiling. ~Helen -owers
