Physical Therapy

In case you missed yesterday’s post, you have a chance to win your very own copy of “Awkward Family Pet Photos,” a hilarious book I reviewed on Tuesday.  Click here to enter!

Here is a short video we took of me doing Riley’s physical therapy with her!

Sorry the video is so dark.  As you can see, she’s pretty flexible right now (just as flexible as she was before surgery)…yay!!

Wanna Be a Winner?

So, after the Awkward Family Pet Photos post yesterday, the publishers have decided to give away a copy to one of our readers!  I know some other blogs were doing this too, so you can double or triple your chances to win one!

If you want to win a copy of the book (see yesterday’s review for more information), just leave a comment on this post telling us what kind of animal your very first pet was!  Mine was a goldfish…my parents really weren’t animal people when we were kids!  🙂

The contest will end at midnight EST on Friday, November 4th, so get your comment in by then!  The winner will be chosen at random (by, so everyone has an equal chance at winning!  It should be fun to see what everybody’s first pet was!  And if you have never had a pet, just say so (but I don’t think you’d be reading a dog blog if you weren’t a “pet person”).

Riley is still doing well.  Her physical therapy (flexing and extending her leg) is going great and she’s still super flexible in her joint.  I don’t really see a post-surgery difference in flexibility, so that’s super!

Riley snuggled up to her new Monkey Mark toy she won on Miss Barbara’s blog!

Look, “Lucifur” is back for a visit!!  I have to put Chloe in the dining room while I take Riley out to potty…so they don’t intermingle and play with each other.

Winner, Winner, Organic Dinner!

The results are in…drum roll please…!

Okay, first, a few technical details.  After I finish this post, I am going to e-mail everyone who entered with instructions on how to get your free sample pack of The Organic Hound Co.’s treats.  Also, I’ll have instructions for the winner and runner-up in the e-mail.

Thanks to The Organic Hound Co. for sponsoring this contest (and for being fabulous in general)!!

Now…do that drum roll again!!

First, the runner-up!  Actually, the judges at The Organic Hound Co. couldn’t decide on just one runner-up, so there are two!  Each of them will receive one box of organic dog treats in the flavor of their choice (Pumpkin Ginger, Peanut Butter Flax, or Beef Heart).  The two runners-up are:

Look at that huge smile!

Careful, Roscoe…if you drink it all, you’ll have nothing to swim in!
Now, what you’ve all been waiting for…the grand prize winner!  The winner will receive three boxes of organic dog treats (one of each of their three flavors).  The winner is:
Who can resist those cute faces (uh, Benny, your face is “handsome,” not cute) and their bathing suits!  Plus, Benny’s hat is the icing on the cake!
Thank you to everyone who entered and we hope everyone enjoyed seeing all these pictures!  Congratulations to Benny and Lily on winning the big prize and congratulations to Clem and Roscoe as well!  Be sure to check your e-mail if you entered the contest!
