Frosty Applause

The Tuesday “Reblog”

This isn’t really a reblog, but more of a shout-out. Last week Sadie, of the blog Sadie and Dasie, had a giveaway over there, as she does sometimes. She’s an amazing photographer, and so that’s the main, er, focus of her excellent blog, but on occasion she gets these great products to give away to random commenters. I usually don’t bother entering contests anymore–at least not ones dependent on luck–because I so rarely win them, but this one was for the dogs.

No, I mean, the stuff being given away was for the dogs . . . Oh, never mind. Here, I’ll show you.

Yesterday a parcel arrived in the mail. Here is what came out of it:

A "Frosty Paws" backpack!

And inside THAT . . .

. . . was a water bottle FOR DOGS and an insulated freezer container for Frosty Paws frozen dog treats

AND a collapsible (zip-up-able) food bowl

AND a poop-bag dispenser. With bags. Without poop.

To top it all off--the pooches get to try Frosty Paws!

All I had to do to win this was comment on Sadie’s post, saying how I would use the giveaway items with the dogs, and then hope my name would be one of the randomly drawn ones–which it was! In my comment I said that Paul and I go hiking with our dogs all the time, so we would totally use this on our next hike. It’s true, too. Sometimes we end up going places where the dogs have access to plenty of water, like we did on the Fourth of July.

"Waiter, there's a person in my water!"

“Waiter, there’s a person in my water!”

But other times there is not a drop to be had, and I know we’ll get good use out of that water bottle and those treats. (And the poop bags . . . ) Also, the pack itself is insulated, so given the fact that the poop bag dispenser clips onto the front, and the water bottle has a carabiner clip and can clip on the outside as well, and the foldable dog bowl fits in a side pocket, there’s actually room for us to put a six-pack in there for us as well. A six-pack of water, obviously. What were you thinking?

Anyway. Thanks, Sadie, Dasie, Lily and Frosty Paws!
