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!)

Friday Find! FUR Dry™ By FURminator!!

 

If your Mom is anything like my Mom, there is nothing she likes worse than when I come inside when it is rainy or snowy and there is water, WATER everywhere!

I don’t take baths at home but I heard from the doggies that do,  that often freshly bathed doggies run through the house like a 4-legged sprinkler!

When I go outside on cold and rainy Michigan days like we had yesterday, when I come back inside,  the water soaks my fur and drips on our Pergo floors  and then if I decide to sit on the couch the couch is all wet too!

The nice people at FURminator have a  super cozy and cuddly solution to this problem!!

Doggie buddies, meet

FUR Dry™

FUR Dry towels are manufactured using a Microfiber technology that is uniquely designed to draw water away from a dog’s coat and into the absorbent fibers.

Doggies this makes drying your fur a breeze!

FUR Dry is so soft and cozy that it can calm you down after a day of outdoor fun, it will save your Mom’s carpets (and your ears from being yelled at for being all wet and sitting on the couch!).

FUR Dry is easy to put on and comes in  sizes that are suitable for all sorts of doggies  too!

Mom was excited when FURminator sent ME a FUR Dry™ to try!

Mom goofed though and thinks she should have ordered me a large because I have a big belly and I have thick, long fur!

Mom wasn't able to secure this around my belly, this was MOM'S fault, NOT FURminator's!

 

Mom? Do you think that maybe you could have gotten me the RIGHT size????

 

Regardless of my Mom having requested the wrong size  (  Medium), when FURminator kindly offered to send her a FUR Dry™ for us to test and review, we still LOVE IT! Mom used it  to dry me off when it was rainy yesterday and it STILL absorbed all the water that accumulated on my fur!

Thanks FURminator for allowing me to test/review the FUR Dry™!!  I am a doggie, I received no other compensation for this review other than a FUR Dry™ to have of my very own!

 

 

Friday Fido Find! Freshpet Fresh Food For Pets! Look What I Got! And…Guess What YOU Can Get!

They must have thought of me when they came up with the term “Lucky Dog!”

Why?

Well I’ll tell ya!

Look at what I received in the mail! From FreshPet!

Freshpet sent me  3 (count ’em!) THREE  bags of goodies and a super high quality cooler made by Coleman to keep my goodies fresh  in when I am  on the go.   I bet Mom and Dad could steal it and use it should they go on a picnic! It came with 2 refrigerator cold packs! My Mom and I were simply overwhelmed by the generosity  of Freshpet and by the sight of these delicious looking snacks!

Just who is FreshPet?

Watch this video to learn more!

Can you tell how EXCITED I was to get my chops around this delectable goodie?

This bone is 100% all natural. It is a crunchy Brown Rice bone

The first item I tested was the DogJoy Fresh Bones! They are:

Crunchy brown rice bone with real chicken baked inside. A safer alternative to natural bones.

4.3 oz.

This bone was long-lasting and simply delicious!

My luck continued! Look what Mom gave me last night when I was having a full-blown bark-fest!!

Mom almost wanted to eat one too because they reminded her of beef jerky and Mom LOVES beef jerky!

These are:  Dog Joy Fresh Chews

Long-lasting chews made from free-range buffalo. Each hand-cut chew is slow roasted in its own juices. Maintains dental health naturally.

4.3 oz.

See how I have my paws? I do this when I am carefully holding onto something that I LOVE! My kitty brother tried to take this away. He’ll never attempt THAT trick again! BOL!

Do you believe I even received a THIRD item from Freshpet? I didn’t get to taste test this one yet but I am looking forward to enjoying these while I watch football with my Dad this weekend!

Yum!!! Sweet Potato!!! My Mom and I can't believe these wonderful flavors that Dog Joy has!! They are so unique and Mom thinks they look tasty enough for her to eat too!

” Dog Joy™ Sweet Potato Chews: The only ingredient is sweet potatoes, naturally full of beta carotene, vitamins and dietary fiber. Each slice is slowly baked to chewy perfection. Available in a 7.5 oz. resealable pouch.”

Mom and I are awfully impressed with Freshpet! I think I am going to work on Mom to switch me from the food I am now eating to this food!! Mom just used their STORE LOCATOR TAB on their WEBSITE and GUESS WHAT DOGGIES!!?? Mom just learned that Freshpet is available at EVERY store she shops at!!!
