It’s a Dog-Gone GIVEAWAY!!

As most of you can see, Jeremy and I love our puppy, Diesel.  Ever since we got him last April, he has dominated our blog and that’s just fine with me.  He makes us laugh, he makes us scream and he makes us spend $1000s of dollars to remove objects from his belly.  True story!  In fact it happened just a few days ago.

Saturday morning, Diesel starting throwing up.  As usual, I thought he just ate something funky (hey, it wouldn't be the first time!) and it’d come up eventually.  Well unfortunately, the puking didn’t stop so I took him to the vet.  After some x-rays, it was soon determined that Diesel had a blockage in his small intestines and that he needed to have surgery to remove it!  Oh no! 

Jeremy and I were so worried about our little guy, but of course, they surgery went well, the object was removed (it was a piece of cow hoof that he decided to swallow, instead of chew) and he spent the night at the vet.  When I picked him up the next morning, the nurse said that when she came in that morning, she found Diesel in his kennel, with his buster collar and he was chewing on his IV.  Yep, that’s our boy!  

Anyway, he’s doing a lot better, his incision is healing nicely and we’re having to keep constant vigilance on him, in order to make sure that he doesn’t run or jump.  So, in honor of Diesel recovering well…how about a GIVEAWAY!?!

That’s right!  The fabulous people at CSN Stores contacted me asking if I was interested in hosting a GIVEAWAY.  Well, of course, I am!  This company has a ton of great websites with items from cookware, to house numbers, to obviously, pet products!  You, my lucky reader, can soon become the winner of this lovely doggie sweater and this entertaining dog toy!  *Please note that the dogs are not included with the GIVEAWAY. :)

Wow, that's a heavy question. I love my dog for so many reasons. We rescued him after our 12 year old Bull Terrier passed away. His family had to give him up because he was deemed a dangerous dog in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Tazz escaped his yard (OK, he climbed a 6 foot fence) and tried to play with some kids. He ran into a young girl and the family sued because he accidentally scratched her.
Anyways, we adopted him and he is an amazing addition to our family. If you've every met a Bully, it's their personality that you fall in love with. They a such goofs and they strive to make you laugh. He's certainly done his job! All of the Bully sounds, the hucklebutt (running around extremely fast), and his constant kisses make our family love him so much. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am truly obsessed with Bull Terriers.
You have some great prizes up for grabs. I hope I win!

Here I thought you were giving Diesel AWAY.LOL
Why I love my 3 dogs. Good question. I love Brodie and Bridget cause they are my kids who love me no matter what mood I am in. I also love them because they brought Diesel and Buster into our Lives. And where would you and I be without Diesel and Buster??? Maybe more $$ in our pockets but that about it.. Diesel, you behave mister....

Oh man. I'm so sorry about Diesel! That's scary. I'm glad he is okay.

I don't have a dog, but I have family who does. I love dogs because they are wonderful companions.

Heh heh. Sorry! That was lame.

Does the sweater come in gigantoid mastiff size? Maybe it will fit Alfie, he's not as big. Ha ha ha.

Dogs are the living "comfort food" for the human soul. They greet you with a wag of the tail no matter how your day went. If they've had a bad day, they don't show it. In fact, they are so "perky", that when they're not, we humans know that they're not feeling well. They enjoy the simple things in life: walks in the park, playing in the snow, laying in the sun, watching TV with you. They ask for nothing and give so much. They give us love, and someone to love. Dogs are great.
