I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! Today's post is going to be short and sweet. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to wish us a happy "blogiversary" and to suggest names for the "blog Betta"! Over the weekend my fiance and I had a chance to look over all the name submissions for our male black dragon Betta. We ended up each selecting our top 3 names out of all the names that were suggested - now, to finally select our Betta's name, we need you all to vote! ...continue reading "Vote to Name Our Blog Betta"
Tomorrow, October 28th, marks the 7 year anniversary of the day Paw Print Pet Blog was created! How crazy is that? Our first post ever, way back in 2010, was about betta fish. The red/blue/white betta fish pictured in that post was named Courage. I got Courage (the cowardly betta) while I was still in college. When I graduated from college and moved 4 hours away to live with my then boyfriend, Courage came with me. He survived the move despite being quite old by then and enjoyed living with us in our new apartment until 2010, when he peacefully passed away. Courage was not my first betta fish but he was my last...until now! ...continue reading "Celebrating Our 7th Blogiversary – Name the Blog Betta!"
Today we are celebrating Paw Print Pet Blog's 6th birthday! Six years ago today our first post went live. Notice anything new? My fiance Chris, to celebrate Paw Print's 6th birthday, designed our new header image! ...continue reading "6 Year Blogiversary Giveaway"
It's hard to believe, but on August 1st, exactly a week from today, we'll be celebrating Fen's 1st birthday! As anyone who has ever raised a puppy knows, each one presents his/her own unique challenges. When we added Fen to our family we began our journey of, for the first time, being a two dog household. I'd be lying if I said it's been easy 100% of the time. Despite that, the past (almost) year we've spent watching Fen grow has been an amazing experience. I'm excited to be getting ready to celebrate his 1st birthday with him, and hope that this is just the first of many, many, many birthdays! ...continue reading "Fen’s 1st Birthday Giveaway"
Hey everyone! Happy Monday. I hope everyone's week is off to a good start. My day today has been a bit hectic - I feel like I haven't gotten much done other than walking dogs and wrangling puppies. Anywho - I recently learned of a pet supplement company, NuVet Labs, that I wanted to tell you all about. Make sure to read this post till the end. I have an awesome giveaway for those of you interested in trying out NuVet products for yourself! ...continue reading "NuVet Labs Vitamin Review & Giveaway"
I can't believe that this month, Paw Print Pet Blog turns 5 years old! The first post I ever posted here went up on October 28th, 2010. To celebrate, I'm finally having our banner redone, and a logo made. Despite updating the layout of the site a couple of months ago, we've been using the same banner for 5 years. I'm (slowly) working on a new intro video for our Youtube page, and this past weekend I spent some time cleaning out my "spare pet supplies" drawer so I could put together a giveaway. ...continue reading "5th Blogiversary Giveaway!"
Happy Monday everyone! I'm so sorry I only got one post out last week. I normally like to post more often, but last week was a bit hectic for me. I won't get into it here since it wasn't pet related at all (all my critters are doing well!) but suffice to say that life got in the way of blogging for a majority of the week last week. To make it up to you all, today I'm announcing a giveaway! ...continue reading "August Dog Treat/Toy Giveaway!"
Happy Friday! I hope that everyone has been having an amazing week. The weather here has gotten much warmer, so Kitsune and I have been spending a lot of time outside. Anyone who walks their dog a lot, like I do, knows that picking the right harness is important! Selecting the perfect harness isn't always an easy task - they are not necessarily a "one type fits all" type of product. Factors such as your dogs size, fur type, walking style, personal preferences, and more can all be factors that will impact what type of harness works best for you and your pooch. I recently got to talk harnesses with the awesome people over at Golly Gear. They sell products made especially for small dogs, including a huge selection of harnesses, and did an amazing job helping me select a new harness for my furry best friend. Read on to hear more about my experience, and enter to win a $25 gift certificate to Golly Gear! ...continue reading "Golly Gear Small Dog Supply Store Review & Giveaway"
