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!
This picture of Roscoe!
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!

"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!
