For the last two months, all of you having been finding Wynston across the USA (and Canada!) on Christmas advertising in your local PetSmart stores. It’s been amazingly fun to see my boy in SO many cities and states. I enjoyed all of the selfies and excited posts when someone new found Wynston in their store. It never got old! Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for a recap of all the places he was spotted, and I picked our random $25 PetSmart gift card winner 🙂
You guys – it’s been four years since I started this blog. Four. Years. Since it’s inception, Dog Mom Days has become an LLC (limited liability company), been in the newspaper, on the news, up for awards, nationally recognized and invited to be a part of some big events.
Actually, it’s really insane now that I think back on it…
Once upon a time, I was sitting in the office of our old house. On a cool December day, I remember turning to Matt and saying, “I think I’m gonna start a dog mom blog!” A few days later, Dog Mom Days was born, and the rest is history! Who knew that my random idea would turn into an incredible career. Yes, it’s taken many 70 hour weeks with a good mixture of blood, sweat and tears to get here, but man – it sure was worth it.
Dog Mom Days has gotten me through a tough 2017, so I want to celebrate in a BIG way this year. I’m hosting a great giveaway as a “thank you” for following us on this journey. I absolutely would not be here without you, my readers!
O’ Christmas tree, o’ Christmas tree, your ornaments are history!!! (Cat lovers will understand!)
It’s the most wonderful time of year, indeed! You all know that I’m a Christmas fanatic, so what better way to celebrate than with a massive giveaway for all of you!? I’ve once again teamed up with some incredible pet bloggers to bring you the 2017 Paws & Santa Claws Holiday Giveaway!
After two years of modeling for PetSmart, Wynston finally appeared on store advertising in November 2016! Although I had seen him online and in the PetSmart Black Friday ad, nothing was quite as exciting as seeing him in the store. Turns out, Wyn is gracing us with his presence again this year in PetSmart retail locations in North America. So far he’s been spotted in two countries and over a dozen states, but I want to see how far he truly reaches! I’m giving everyone who sees Wynston in their local PetSmart store a chance to win a $25 gift card because it’s like “Where’s Waldo?” fun, except BETTER!
Although Khloee has been in our lives since she was just three months old, separation anxiety has always been an issue for her. I partially blame myself because I’ve worked from home since I rescued her, so I never really had a reason to be away from Khloee for long periods of time. I can look back on “should haves” all I want, but the fact of the matter is my pretty Poodle struggles being away from me. I’ve tried all of the basic training and well-known tricks for aiding in cases of separation anxiety, and sadly nothing has worked for Khloee.
Hemp oil is becoming a widespread and credible resource for many different physical and mental ailments, so I was extremely excited to try Zen Pets with Khloee. Turns out, Wynston broke his foot so I’ve been able to test it out with our many vet visits. I’m not a huge fan of drugging up my pets (unless it’s absolutely necessary, of course) so a natural alternative was an attractive concept. Zen Pets is a quality hemp oil specifically made for our pets’ well-being to promote health and wellness.
