MANKINDdog™ and All Things Dog Blog™ Vow to 'Be the Change' for Animals

Celebrating the relationship between humans and their dogs is what MANKINDdog™ is all about. And what a perfect day to join in this reverence for our canine companions.  Go take a walk with Fido after you're finished reading this.

Today, in partnership with MANKINDdog™, All Things Dog Blog™ is launching another fun product giveaway along with a charity drive for 2 pet charities. I need all you bloggers out there to check this out. It's part of the Be the Change movement started at the Blogpaws Conferences, and you can get a Thank You gift and a link to your site for helping! 

I know how much my readers have hated the recent onslaught of freebies--tongue in cheek! It's written all over my analytics program. You know, that tekkie report that says my site visits have risen 200% since August. Thanks, by the way. I love you guys AND your dogs. Keep those emails, comments, and photos coming. And I'll keep giving away these great goodies.

Let's start by telling you a little about my new friends at MANKINDdog™, which was started as an offshoot of the love for their collective pack of 7. Talking with them was quite an experience for me. Loving both big and small dogs, I wasn't quite sure what to expect with these folks after visiting their website, where their handsome Mastiff takes front and center.

The first image you see there is a hunky guy (imagine a George Clooney look-alike!) hanging out with an awesome Mastiff named Gotham. Great name, huh?!! This hardly created an image of Papillon lovers. Much to my surprise, there's a diverse assortment of all sizes and breeds in the MANKINDdog™ 'family'.  I think I'm liking this team!

As our conversation progressed, I continued to be impressed by their commitment to the dog community. From their past years of support of their local Humane Society to a new plan to give a percentage of sales to Canine Companions for Independence, it is clear that MANKINDdog™ really does care about dogs and their owners. 

The folks at MANKINDdog™ are also committed to bringing you excellent gifts for both dog and owner. MANKINDdog™ has a huge assortment of gifts and merchandise for both dog lovers and their dogs. This is just the place to find the perfect gift for your hard-to-buy-for pet loving friends and family. Are you an online shopper? I find that I like my furry companions' input, if only by having them sleep at my feet while I browse the web, avoiding traffic, gasoline consumption and the ever-present holiday crowds.

So what does MANKINDdog™ carry in their product line? Let's get a sneak peek at their Signature Collection right here:

The Ultimate Gift
for the Dog Lover and the Dog!
I love the way they describe their Signature Collection on their site:
"MANKINDdog's Signature Collection is a treasure of delights designed to celebrate the love, kindness, and bond that exists between Mankind and Dogs. Indulge in a collection of fantastic, select gifts and merchandise for the dog lover and the dog. Celebrate the love, embrace the companionship, and live the bond." 
I'm sure you'll agree that was quite poetic. I'd like to meet their copy-writer. 

Let's move on and introduce you to your raffle prize. Then we'll go over the entry stuff; you know--the 'rules.' MANKINDdog™ is generously offering two prize packages, each valued at a whopping $112:

MANKINDdog's donation will also be going to a local charity, the Humane Society of Nogales, Arizona--just inside the Mexican border. Both of these organizations will be thrilled to receive our donations, but we need your help!
