Fun Friday! The Paw Flapper™ by Kyjen! Enter to win!

Hi and Happy Friday all!

Mom and I wanted to be sure that the month of December was a FUN month and it sure has been so far! We wanted to show our readers how much we appreciate them and offer a few give-aways,  and we have even more fun planned ahead!

Bet ya didn’t know that I am one of a number of  dog toy testers for  Kyjen ,and I wanted to show you my latest find! And…when I put my paw print on an email asking my furiends at Kyjen if I could do a give-away for two of my readers they didn’t hesitate to say yes! They jumped on it like I jump on my dinner!

Today I am happy to present to you:

Paw Flapper™

The Paw Flapper™ is a two-part puzzle, encouraging dogs to use their noses. They must learn how to lift treat chambers, as well as rotate the toy to retrieve treats. This is an excellent scent test with 8 hidden treat chambers altogether!

You Can Get Cozy With KONG Cozies! A Give-Away!

Gather round the computer woofies! “Lend me your ears!” (well I guess since this is a blog that would be EYES!!)

Boy oh boy was my tail ever waggin’ when I received a giant box of goodies from KONG! Any dog worth his bones knows that KONG manufactures some of the most durable, superb quality, creative toys on the planet.  The KONG toys aren’t the type that are ruined in one enthusiastic bite, no sirree!! These babies are made to last!

Speaking of babies, KONG now has a line of plush toys called Cozies.  I know, I know, you think you are a tough doggie but we all get our times when we start thinking of  how life was when we were pups  and we just get the urge to cuddle! Or, we feel like picking something up, shaking it or throwing it, not to be mean mind you, but just to put some fun into our routine!

These are the toys in the KONG Cozie Collection. Aren’t they just the cutest?  They have:

  • Minimal filling for minimal mess
  • Extra layer of material to increase strength
  • Squeak to help entice play
  • Not for chew sessions
  • 10 fun characters: Ali the Alligator, Baily the Blue Dog, Elmer the Elephant, Buster the Koala, King the Lion, Spunky the Monkey, Marvin the Moose, Floppy the Bunny, Rosie the Rhino and Tupper the Lamb
Here are the KONG Cozies that I received:
In this photo we have (from left to right), “Tupper The Lamb”, “Floppy The Bunny”, Baily The Blue Dog”, “Spunky The Monkey” and “King The Lion!”
It was soooo hard to choose which one I wanted. I had to carefully inspect the box, sniff each one for quality control, and I even had to taste the box to see what type of packaging material was used. All of this to make sure that they met my high standards.

It was so difficult to choose! Each Cozie really lives up to its name.  Doggy friends these are the softest and most cuddly toys EVER!

Want to know which Cozie toy I chose for myself?

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. I chose:

SPUNKY THE MONKEY!!!

I love this monkey so much that  I just had to smell him, kiss him and put the “bitey” on him! He took it all like the good sport that he is!

My brother,  Cody even tried to get in on the action!

Hey "Cat Chat" Boy!! That's MY Monkey! Give him back!

Can I play with Spunky too Mom?

Cody can’t play with Spunky or any of the other KONG Cozies. Want to know why? Because the extra four KONG Cozies aren’t for me!

The incredibly kind and generous people at KONG said that FOUR OF YOU CAN WIN ONE!!

Yep you heard that right!

FOUR OF YOU can each win ONE KONG Cozie that my Mom will mail directly to you! (THE CONTEST IS OPEN TO EVERYBODY since my Mom is doing the mailing!)

HOW TO ENTER: The first two requirements  ARE MANDATORY!!!!

1) You MUST be a subscriber of Dakota’s Den

2) Leave us a comment telling us which KONG Cozie is your favorite!

3) “Like” Dakota’s Den on Facebook and leave us a comment there!

Entries must be received no later than MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7 at 11PM EASTERN…WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH.

THANK YOU NICE PEOPLE AT KONG!!

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERS!!!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota & “Spunky The Monkey”
