Three Winners Named for Visibility Vests

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

Visibility Vests Make Hiking Safer
Looks like we have a lot of hikers out there; good for you! With so much in the news about obesity problems among both humans and dogs, you're on the right track. Today we're going to name the three winners who will receive a Visibility Vest to make their hiking expeditions infinitely more safe for their dogs. Let's face it, when Fido is wearing a bright yellow vest, he's easily visible against the deep green leaves--or brown during a drought--throughout the forest.

If you're running through babbling brooks, romping in the surf, or trekking in a rain or snowstorm the same thing applies. Bright yellow will make your pet stand out against the background, assuring he is visible to any hunters, vehicles, fishermen or others that could accidentally cause harm.

Thanks for all of your enthusiastic participation in our giveaway, sponsored by Gold Paw Series. If you missed it, please read our review and visit the Gold Paw Series webpage to learn more. If you find yourself itching to buy one for your dog, you can use this Store Locator.

Without adieu, let's name our winners: B. Jaroudi, H. Bridson, and M. Core. Congratulations, ladies!  You'll be hearing from me via Watch your inbox AND your spam file. I'll need to hear back from you with your dog's size selection, your name and street address for shipping. Please use the information on the webpage to select your size. If your dog is borderline, I recommend going up to the next size. The vests are not large, and they do have adequate adjustability to tighten them up when needed.

Please let our sponsor know you've enjoyed this promotion by giving them a thank you on their Facebook page. Once again, we thank you for joining in on this event.

Happy tails,

My Merrick #TreatRight Review

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

Let's Get to Work, Mom!
As we prepared for the announcement of the #TreatRight Twitter Party and this product review, I prepared a photo shoot set. Tanner and Oliver now know that the appearance of the yoga mat means that their company is requested. I always invite them to join me for yoga practice, no matter what I'm working on. Their companionship is not only important for our bonding, but helps them become comfortable with the funky things I try, even when I'm not including them in a pose. 

Tanner and Oliver do get a fab benefit for joining me. They get a #TreatRight snack from
Have Treats. Will Travel.
one of our favorite treatmakers. Today they'll be noshing on Grammy's Pot Pie from Merrick's Kitchen Bites line. Doesn't that sound like a delicious homemade dinner? These treats are oven-baked with deboned meat as the first ingredient. Merrick adds fruits and veggies and bakes these treats to their crunchy, USA-made goodness. 

There's no corn, soy, or wheat in the Kitchen Bites treats; these babies are grain free and gluten free! Inspired by Merrick's award-winning classic canned foods, they're available in 6 flavors that will have you and Fido salivating. In addition to Grammy's Pot Pie, there's Cowboy Cookout, Turducken, Brauts-n-Tots, and the Wingalings that come in two flavors--Applewood Bacon Flavor and Hickory Smoke Flavor. This is country dinner treat time at its best!

Next up is the Power Bites line. These tiny, soft and chewy treats are packed with the highest protein in the industry, using meaty recipes and no sorbic acid--perfect for training your smart dog to do all his great tricks and nice behaviors. All natural and perfect for your higher energy Fido or training that needs a little extra encouragement.

Your dog's dental specialist will be pleased to know that Merrick now offers Dental Chews called Li'l Brush Bones. Clever, right?!! Oliver just finished his second one and there was no coersion required to encourage him to chow down. He was super eager to jump right in and work his jaws to clean his choppers.

The Merrick Jerky Chip Treats come in 4 oven-baked flavors to please your dog with the most discriminating palette. Look for chicken, beef, lamb and salmon flavors, all boasting their protein as the first ingredient. And remember, all of these Merrick treats are Grain Free and Gluten Free. Yum!

Let's wrap this ambitious review up with some important facts:
