Last Day to Enter the Giveaway!

Today is the last day to enter The Organic Hound Co. giveaway (you have until midnight Eastern time to e-mail your pictures)!  Here is a link to the original post:  In a nutshell, e-mail us your dog’s photos of how they like to keep cool on a hot day and you could score some awesome loot from The Organic Hound Co!  The contest is only open to US and Canada residents.  E-mail us at riley.acd(at)gmail(dot)com.  [Obviously, replace the “(at)” with @ and the “(dot)” with a . ]  I just don’t want spammers getting a hold of our e-mail!

Here are a few ways Riley likes to keep cool on a hot day:

By dunking her whole snout in her water bowl…

 By enjoying a homemade “Frosty Paws…”
By lying on the cool tile…

By taking a nice cool dip at the beach…

And by chilling out indoors with her belly up in the air for maximum coolness!
Also, our Puggle friend Minnie from Minnie and Mack’s Daily Digest is sick with pancreatitis in the hospital right now.  😦  Stop by their blog and give their Mama, Kathy, some lovin’ and encouragement!  Here is the link:  Thanks!!

"Keeping it Cool" Contest!

The wonderful people over at The Organic Hound Company are sponsoring a fun contest on our blog here.

So here’s the deal…  We want to see your pictures of your favorite way of cooling off on a hot summer day!  The pictures can be Photoshopped or edited or they can just be a regular photo you take.  So get creative!  The contest starts today and the last day we’ll be accepting pictures is next Friday, July 15th at midnight Eastern time.  E-mail your pictures to: riley.acd(at)gmail(dot)com

Check out The Organic Hound Company’s website at  Here is some info about them:

“The Organic Hound Co. makes USDA certified organic treats for dogs. All 3 Organic Hound Co. flavors – Organic Pumpkin Ginger, Organic Peanut Butter Flax, and Organic Beef Heart – are hand baked in small batches using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Packaged in 100% recyclable and compostable packaging, these organic dog treats really are healthy for your dog and for the environment!”

There will be one grand prize winner who will win a box of all three of their flavors of treats (so 3 boxes of treats) and a runner-up who will win one box of treats in the flavor of their choice.  Let me just say that Riley absolutely is nuts for these treats!  The people at The Organic Hound Co. are going to be the judges and pick their two favorite pictures.  I’ll post all of the pictures we get e-mailed on July 16th and 17th and then I’ll announce the winner and runner-up on Monday, July 18th.  This contest is open to residents of the US and Canada only.

Have fun, get creative, and we can’t wait to see how everybody beats the heat!
