Pet Product Reviews
and Giveaways Piling Up

Guarding the Carrier He Will Review

In the wake of my attendance at Global Pet Expo, I find I'm in need of another garage or a warehouse. My plan is to give it all away as prizes when I review each item, so I'm going to need some help from you guys. Are you ready for some giveaways? 

They're going to get bigger and better, so maybe it's time to subscribe, huh? Subscriptions are FREE and everything you need is in the top right of the sidebar for email subscribing or RSS. Google Friend Connect is at the bottom of the sidebar, if you'll be keeping tabs that way.

My advice? Visit the blog each weekend and check the "Enter this Week's Drawing" widget in the sidebar to find out what I'm giving away. This is the image you'll click:

You may also want to check the "List of Winners" link, just beneath that image, to see if you won anything in the most recent drawings. Sometimes my readers are surprised when they win something after entering a comment months ago. What fun it is to hear from them. "I won! I won! How?"

Just in case you're new to these parts, here's how drawing entries work at All Things Dog Blog. Each comment on a giveaway post here on the blog, on my Facebook page, or on Twitter, gets you an entry into the drawing box. If you choose not to leave a link to contact information, you'll either need to check back in a week to see if you won here, or send your email to me at so I can notify you of your winnings. If I can't find you, it's hard to ship your package :)

Packages weighing less than 13 ounces qualify for International prizes. Those over this weight limit are available only to North American addresses (upper 48 U.S. States and Canada). 

All that business aside, I have a question. With the daily visits from USPS, UPS, and FEDEX, I'm reasonably sure they think I've started my holiday shopping early or possibly I'm redecorating the entire house. Any clever retorts to the "I'm here with your package" or "Wow; you're getting a lot of packages these days" comments?

I considered a sassy reply such as "Yeah. They're all 'Pet' products!, but thought better of it. These guys know where I live, ya know? Help!

The mail carriers 'round these parts are completely used to my dogs receiving mail - usually more mail than all the humans on the block combined. Whenever I get comments about just how many packages we get, I like to tell them that "I'm hoping to be on Hoarders eventually" or that "my online shopping addiction keeps my drinking problem at bay: LOL ;) A few comments like that and they quit giving you a hard time!

Elizabeth said...

That picture of them waiting is darling! Can't wait to hear your reviews... especially on the pet carrier. I sure hope Oliver enjoys it. Nice post, thank you!

Jess the Dog Shopper said...

I normally just look at the dogs and ask them "what have you ordered this time?" That's when our UPS man actually bothers hanging around long enough to see my face...which is rare. He usually just rings the doorbell and then drops the package and has nothing to do with the dogs, he's just always in a hurry!

Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

Okay, Jess. Your comment really works for my personality. It puts the whole thing back in 'family friendly' and off of me entirely! I'll practice that and thanks for the idea!

The UPS guy surprised me one day when he brought dog treats for Sephi and Maya!

BTW that Snoozer carrier, called the Roll Around Pet Carrier, is awesome. Too bad Sephi and Maya are too big for it.

Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

Dawn: The carrier has some great features; we can't wait to get to that review. Too bad they don't make a super strong model for Sephi and Maya!

The fedex guy came with an order of dog food this week and of course my dog (service dog) answered the door with me and knew what was in the box immediately. I had to look at her and ask, "Did you figure out my paypal passwords again?" They always laugh. I had a delivery a couple months ago where the guy was really glad it was food, he was worried about how much it rattled... in case it was broken! Seems the only boxes we get are for the dog too!(or my daughter)

Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

Rubiegem: That's a good one too--paypal password!

I actually used the one above with my UPS guy yesterday and he rolled with laughter. This is such fun hearing everyone's take on this!

Peggy Frezon said...

Wow they just lie there and watch the mail carrier? Kelly jumps and barks her head off! I'm looking forward to the reviews and contests!
