IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY SUBSCRIBED
YOU SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY MOVE OVER!
THANKS FOR YOUR PAW-TIENCE!!!
BARKS AND LICKS AND LOVE,
Hi my furiends, it’s Dakota and boy oh boy am I ever excited to bark some news out at you!
I was contacted the other day by a wonderful woman who sent me information about a new subscription service, and she asked if I would help her BARK out the news! I told her I am ALWAYS up for a BARK about SOMETHING! Especially something that I think will have you or your human barking with joy!
Doggies, you know how when you take a walk with your human and you stop to use the facilities, it oftentimes is accompanied by all sorts of
barking curse words from your human? Why? THEY FORGOT TO BRING A BAG TO PICK UP THE POOP!!!
That is the most frustrating thing for our humans! I am ashamed to say I have seen my Mom grab giant leaves (yes, you heard me correctly!) from bushes and use THOSE to pick up my poop because she was too lazy to go back upstairs to get a bag.
My Dad is guilty too. If he doesn’t have a bag, he will often LEAVE THE POOP until he makes a trip back outside!
Well, you know how THAT goes! The ONE time that you don’t have a bag and you leave the poop, you get a crotchety neighbor with nothing to do but dial phones and report renegade poop (key Wicked Witch of the West music from the Wizard of Oz here) she almost steps in aforementioned poop, and then, you get a note chastising you about proper poop disposal. YES! Dad DOES go back out and pick up the poop but sometimes not fast enough!
Did you know?
“Scientists have been able to trace dangerous bacteria in water back to dog waste. By offering people an affordable, fun and convenient way to keep a constant supply of waste bags, PoopBuddy aims to help reduce the spread of water pollution by the 72M strong dog owning community.”
Let’s not forget the current uproar about plastic bags being harmful to the environment. Soon, they might be a thing of the past. Imagine having eco-friendly, super-cool looking waste pick-up bags automatically mailed to your house! Your humans will be so happy that they will become never ending treat dispensers!
I want to give you a peek at a new product called:
An Eco-Chic Poop Bag Delivery Service
“The service addresses the increasing demand for eco-friendly alternatives to plastic bags and the want for fun and stylish dog accessories. PoopBuddy aims to motivate the 40% of dog owners who opt out of dog waste cleanup to form new habits.”
Are these too cool or what? Remember, I told you this is just a “sneak peek.” PoopBuddy is shipping me a bag (I hope more than one bag but we will see!), so that I can tell you what I think of these, and then I will give you more information about how the subscription service works.
ABOUT PoopBuddy: Based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, PoopBuddy is a subsidiary of OnePet.co. Founded in 2013 by a group of entrepreneurial-minded dog lovers who believe that people can love their pup, love their planet and look like a million bucks.
Stay tuned for my review of the product when it arrives, I received no compensation for this post. I will receive a PoopBuddy bag.
Barks and licks and love,
Hi everyone and Happy Monday!
I am excited to tell you about a give-away today that is super special.
Back in May I entered a give-away that was being held in honor of one of my favorite puppies:
Bullet is the doggy of C.Richman from the blog:
In honor of Bullet’s birthday, she was giving away a candle from Terri’s Candles that not only featured Bullet on the front, but the candle scent is called Precious Puppy in honor of Bullet!
And I won!!
Here is what I received:
If you look closely you can see Bullet’s adorable face on the candle on the left, that was the candle I won for the give-away. Terri was a sweet heart and gave me another candle for featuring her candles on Dakota’s blog. She also gave me the most incredible vanilla scented tarts that you burn in a tart warmer (but I didn’t take a photo of those!)
When it comes to candles I am obsessed. I can never have enough of them, and I am super critical when it comes to the brands/scents that I will buy for my home. Terri’s Candles completely surpassed my expectations, and in my opinion smell BETTER than many candles that you would buy in a brick and mortar store. I cannot begin to tell you how much in love I am with these candles!
What I am also excited about is Terri is interested in using her candles for fundraising for animals. If anyone knows of any local organizations that you would like to help out, you can contact Terri at sandprints239 at aol.com The candles would be made in the Precious Puppy scent with labels on the jars. You can contact Terri for more details.
In the meantime, Terri has most generously offered ONE OF MY READERS that resides in the U.S. the opportunity of winning the same candle that I received, shown below:
The scent is PRECIOUS PUPPY which is:
“A very special aroma of pink grapefruit, Valencia orange and key lime as top notes. Pink jasmine blossoms, rose petals and a fruity fusion of ripe apricot for middle notes and then bing cherry and ripe plums, round out the fragrance as base notes.”
It is a $14.00 VALUE!
HOW TO ENTER:
EXTRA ENTRY: Like Terri on Facebook and tell her that Dakota sent you! Come back and leave a comment telling me that you did this.
THE GIVE-AWAY IS OPEN NOW (18 and over who reside in the U.S. only please) and will END ON MONDAY, JULY 8TH AT 5PM EST. THE WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN BY WWW.RANDOM.ORG AND WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 10th.
In full disclosure I was not compensated for this post. I received two candles and some tarts. One candle was won in a give-away, the other and the tarts were a thank you for featuring Terri’s Candles on Dakota’s blog. All opinions are my own.
I have no idea where this photo came from to credit the person who took it, plus, this ISN’T Mom and Dad!!
But THIS IS!!!!
If you want to read about the story of their engagement, my kitty brother posted it on his blog today and I am too lazy to post it! You can read about it here!!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOM & DAD!
