A while back my Mommy entered a contest on Facebook. It was sponsored by Modern Dog Magazine - every Friday they do a Friday Giveaway on their Facebook page! She has entered them now and then but figured no one ever really won. She sure didn't. You know what I mean - businesses use gimmicks like that all the time to get people to "Like" them so they can brag about their numbers.
Okay, we both admit that perhaps that is a bit too cynical and that sometimes businesses are using contests as a way to thank their followers. Long story short - we WON!! Yes, Mommy had entered to win me a NEW COLLAR because, well a PUG Princess cannot have too many collars. And Mommy likes to put them on me when we are in a pug crowd so she can identify me quickly.
On this particular Friday, Modern Dog Magazine was giving away a Hydro Collar from Hot Dogs All Dressed. Hmmmm, Mommy thought, that might be nice on my dear sweet Nu-Nu (as she often calls me). So she followed the directions and entered the contest. At the end of the day she looked on Facebook to see the winners. She read them - went huh - and the said ALOUD Woo-Hoo! Because there in digital words was MY NAME as a winner!!!! OMP! This was awesome!
She contacted Modern Dog Magazine and they put her in touch with Hot Dogs All Dressed. From there is was a pretty easy process. She was so puzzled about what color and then they told her BLING was included!!! They told her to look on the site and see what they have available. That way she has a visual to go by.
She finally she decided to go with what every PUG Princess would want - PINK with shiny diamond-like paws.
These GREAT collars usually retail for $20+ but we got ours FOR FREE!!!
Within 2 weeks - from the time she won - I received my new collar in the mail. AND I must say, it is absolutely PERFECT right down to the rivets! My new collar is comfortable and cleanable. It is also waterproof and VEGAN! It won't smell, either - unlike ME. I think it looks really really good, as well.
She said check out Modern Dog Magazine and Hot Dogs All Dressed sometime when you are in the mood for some good reads and awesome bling.
