Social Pet Saturday: Contest Results

Remember a few weeks ago when Shiner asked you to vote for her in DogTime and CatTime's May Day Play Day video contest? We want to thank everyone who voted, shared, or even wished her luck in the contest. You guys are awesome and we appreciate your support!


Unfortunately, Shiner did not win the contest, but she did come in second place! She was up against some other great pets, including the winner - Odilia a blind kitten that many of you may know. Congratulations to cute little Odilia from the blog Tails from the Foster Kittens! Here's her video, which is super cute ~ 


Now on to some other updates from around the interwebs. Enjoy! 

  • Congratulations to Oz the Terrier on winning our latest giveaway - a copy of "The Richest Dog in Town" by Bruny Hudson and her dog, Hobo! If you didn't win, but would still like to purchase the book you can do so here
I think Oz and Hobo look similar :)

  • Do you know what a reverse sneeze in dogs sounds like? It's hard to explain, but DogSplendor had a great post about it this week. 
  • On the blog What Remains Now, I was very amused by Lori's post "Mini-me Theatre - New Kid on the Block". 
  • 2 Brown Dawgs blog posted about a personal experience they had with bloat. The post gives some wonderful insight to bloat in dogs as well as great advice and information.
  • I found an interesting DIY for natural Aquarium fertilizer balls for aquatic plants at All Natural Pet Care. It says that these fertilizer balls can also be used in potted plants or gardens. I find it interesting since I have a new outdoor fish pond with lily pads. Maybe someone else might find it useful as well. You can read the full article and instructions here

And that's it for this week... short and sweet! See you again soon!

  3. Well we are glad you came in second. That kitten is just too cute and blind too.
    We had a dog have bloat and it is horrible. They did the surgery and the poor dog died afterwards. It is a horrible thing.
    Take care and have a great day.

    1. Sure, no problem. I think the information was really great. Especially since it came from a firsthand experience of bloat. I hope no one else needs the information either but if so, I'm sure they'll find it helpful.
