Foodie Friday! I have Frosty Paws!

Happy Furday everyone! It’s Dakota! Not only do I have “Frosty Paws” from our bitter and SNOWY Michigan weather, I was the LUCKY WINNER of a great give-away over at one of my favorite blogs, Dog Tested Mother Approved, a blog where they share “dog product reviews, tips and ideas” or, as they like to say, “the Tried and Chewed”. If you aren’t familiar with them, please check them out!

So, wanna see what I won?

My actual winnings!!

So what exactly did I win?

TWO coupons for a

FREE box of Frosty Paws by Purina

And a “Frosty Mascot” toy!

(TOY IS NOT  SUITABLE FOR DOGS)

Now, I have to tell you a funny story. Mom was at  the store last week and while she was looking for something decadent to  indulge in stuff her face with  for the Super Bowl, she stumbled upon the Frosty Paws in the human ice cream section! Of course she didn’t have her coupons with her, so she figured while she saw them in front of her face, rather than wait, she would buy a package for me. We hear Frosty Paws comes in peanut butter flavor and vanilla, Mom only saw the vanilla at our store, so she bought that one.

Mom decided that I could have my Frosty Paws while she and Dad were enjoying pigging out on their frozen yogurt.

WARNING!!! If you are a dog that inhales his food like I do, Mom has a warning for you! Be sure to thaw your Frosty Paws enough that you can mash it up in a bowl. WHY? Guess what I did??  Mom and Dad took the frozen treat out of the cardboard container and put it in my bowl, without thawing it a bit or mashing it up. Mom thought I would gingerly lick or nibble on it. Mom apparently forgot who she was talking about. I GRABBED THE ENTIRE BLOCK of frozen treat and ran while clenching the entire block between my teeth! I did my best showdog- lineage- prance around the living room, all the while STILL holding the frozen block of Frosty Paws with my teeth. I LOVED it so much that I had to take it to my special hide out under the dining room table where no human hands can reach me! Mom was screaming about how I would mess the carpet and Dad kept saying “Do you believe what he just did!!??” The best part? They never got it on video because I was too quick for them!

I ate that baby up AND licked every bit up from Mom’s beloved oriental fake rug!

Yeah, I know it is freezing cold in many places in the U.S., but join me in a delightful daydream. It’s mid-August, the “dog days of summer” and you are one panting hot dog! Let Frosty Paws transport you back to those days with its cold, delicious and tasty goodness!! Doesn’t matter if it is freezing cold out or boiling hot. I love Frosty Paws by Purina so much that I can eat them ANY TIME! When I do, it reminds me of this:

Fun Friday! Puppy Parcel from Five Wags! Enter to Win!

It’s finally time!! The long-awaited give-away from our furiends at Five Wags has arrived! First, I would like to thank Reed for his patience with my having misplaced the information telling me who is eligible to win and what they could win!

A few weeks ago Reed contacted me asking if I would be interested in receiving a Puppy Parcel from Five Wags. I was intrigued and jumped on the opportunity.

What is a Puppy Parcel?

From Five Wags:

The Puppy Parcel is filled with premium dog products hand-selected to match your pup’s personality and interests. Each month, we search for toys and treats for your pup, some classics and some unexpected, always selected to delight your dog and create endless wags!

Because every dog is different and special, in order to determine what types of goodies should be included in your dog’s box, Five Wags offers the Puppy Profile Quiz . I filled out the quiz for Dakota and it couldn’t have been easier!

After you complete the Puppy Profile Quiz  you join by signing up for their monthly membership, and within a week you will receive your first Puppy Parcel delivered right to your doorstep! As long as your membership is active, you will receive a new and fun Puppy Parcel every month! How cool is that?

Here  are examples of their sample boxes. Dakota received a mixture of two different boxes, based on his interests.

They are packaged sooo cute aren’t they? Here is a photo of the products that Dakota received and I will tell you what our favorites were!

One item that I received for Dakota that I LOVED was the lavender-scented outdoor refresher spray, Pal Dog Freshen Up Spray for active outdoor dogs. It is meant to use on your dog to “refresh” he or she after playing or hiking outside. What I used it for was the mess that Dakota gets on his mane after devouring some of  his favorite bones! I just sprayed it on the brush and brushed his mane and it not only removed the stickiness, but he smelled delightful!

Some of Dakota’s favorite items in the Puppy Parcel were:

Angry Birds Wobbly Ball by Griggles. It wobbles and jiggles and is so much fun! We like to put a treat in ours as an extra challenge. Check out Dakota using it!

Fruitables Crunchy Dog Treats were also in the box, they smell good enough to eat! Dakota loves them and what I love is they are small enough to fit in a variety of toys that he has that dispense treats.

Another fave was Louie the Lobster by Jax and Bones. I was super impressed with how well made and durable this toy is! It is NOT flimsy! It is hand braided, lasts long (ours is still fine and Dakota is a major chewer!). It is soft enough to play fetch indoors and it is sooo cute!

Here are some super short videos of Dakota playing with Louie! In the first video I LOVE how Dakota shakes his head like a horse.

Here is another video of Dakota and Louie the Lobster, even after chewing Louie’s lobster claw it is STILL in tact!

Dakota and I were super pleased with the process of registering for our review box, the ease of taking the quiz, the  speed of delivery, the appearance of the box and the quality of the products. This would also make a great Gotcha Day, Birthday or anytime gift for your dog or the special doggies in your life!

Guess what? Reed is offering ONE lucky person  WHO LIVES IN THE U.S. a TWO MONTH subscription to the Puppy Parcel!! Do you believe it??? That is incredibly generous!
