  • Kristin

    Roxie is a two year old chihuahua/papillon mix that thinks she is a lil star.. She is the princess of the house who gets attention n pictures tooken of her all the time;)

  • My 3 dogs are already stars and they know it! Bucky and Ruby are Mini Longhaired Dachshunds, and Sophie is a Sheltie. They are all treated like royalty here, nothing (that we can afford) is too good for them. They have never had beer and I think they would really like it, !

  • YvonneF

    The 4-legged family members are definitely the stars in the house. Everyone loves them! They receive presents on their birthdays and Christmas. They have their own couches in the living room. And, of course, they have many toys too.

  • Kim Stevenson

    My dog BOWSER is a rockstar because he can sing, dance and pull off any fashion accessory! He is a Boston Terrier that we rescued and he also loves Bowser Beer!!! Pick us!

  • Pintu

    Our Benji is definitely a big star! He makes friends where ever he goes.He is very bold, daring & dynamic, also highly balanced minded, plus a very good decision maker ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Michelle Barnes

    I have two dogs, and they are definitely little diva rock stars. One expects belly rubs at all times, and the other expects to be hand fed! He hates eating out of his dish!

  • Grace Anne Carter

    We have two dogs but Oliver, our basset hound, is definitely our “princess”! When our daughter, and only child, went across the country to college, I told her not to be surprised if she came home on holiday to find Ollie dressed in baby clothes and drinking from a bottle!!!

  • Kim J

    Just found your website through Rachel Rossman’s blog. I love her work and hope to win a portrait!

  • Elizabeth J

    My dog BeLanna is a star and aging gracefully. She could really use the glucosamine and beer sounds like a more fun method of ingesting it than pills. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • johnny

    we just got our 6 month old Mix “Spaz” ( oh yea he is ๐Ÿ™‚ ) out of the Animal Shelter. He was born there and was sitiing there behind Bars all his Life. I think the little Dude deserves to be getting some extra TLC Star Treatment !

  • johnny
  • oregoncoastgirl

    Because my dogs are my babies….

    • oregoncoastgirl

      THANK YOU!!! How exciting!

  • My dog Mr.Pink should win because he is a rescue dog I got about 2 years ago and he is about 7 years old and has had a rough life for most of his life with abusive former owners and I think he deserves to be treated like a star from now on. I do my best to spoil him and give him the star life he deserves. I’d love for him to have this.

    Thanks for this giveaway and I also follow on twitter @vmsweet123

  • Gizmo asks me every day when I’m going to have Rachel Rossman immortalize him in a portrait. He should definitely win.

  • louisebear2

    I would love a portrait of my dog by Rachael! Another bunch of great giveaways!

  • KGP

    Our Casey is a 9 month old star. We just adopted her this past March and she’s really come a long way. And WE have come a long way since she’s entered our lives. I would love to give her that Bowser Beer at the very least!!!

  • Ann

    My dog should be treated like a star because he has superior intelligence, a Husky. He is beautiful, solid white with blue eyes, and he has the most loving disposition of any dog I have ever know.

    On second thought, does this reflect what the stars we hear and read about are really like?

  • Becky

    My dog tugger is an 8 yr old chihuahua and he deserves this prize! He has had 3 surgeries on his right rear leg – 2 within the past 4 months. Needless to say he has been in a lot of pain and had to suffer the indignities of wearing a cone on top of that so that he wouldnt chew his stitches. But he has been a very brave boy and will be starting physical therapy next week. This would be a wonderful treat for him!

  • Lanae

    My dogs deserve to be treated like stars because, although I do spoil them myself, I don’t always have the cash to get them everything I would like to. This would be a great chance to get a special treat for them, thanks!

  • Lanae

    I am already subscribing!

  • Louisebear2

    Love Rachael’s work!

  • Amy C

    She should be treated like a start because she always makes me smile when I walk into the room. Not to mention she’s the best dog EVER!

  • Bugsy Pako (Dog)

    My dog, Bugsy, is 10 years old and I feel like he should get something to make him feel loved. He grew up as an abused dog and when we got him (6 yrs old) He was afraid of everything and everyone. I got bit by him so many times when we first adopted him.. He is 3/4 deaf and 3/4 blind. I want him to know that we love him. He doesn’t bite us anymore, but I still feel that he would appreciate it! Even if he doesn’t win, thank you for the opertunity to make his life that much better!

  • Marie

    My dog deserve to be treated like a star because we had a baby last year and she is feeling jealous! The baby loves to play with her but she doesn’t get nearly as much attention! She loves us and sits on our laps but she can’t stay with us for too long! She deserves to be a star for a day!

  • Lanae

  • Lanae

    I wish Castello di Fido had a bottle of treats that was completely grain-free, as one of my dogs can have no grain whatsoever. Our other dog is on a very low grain diet, so at least he could eat their corn and wheat-free variety! I am sure he would love them!

  • Sstierstorfer

    My little schnauzer eats Popsicles with me! Time with him is the best way I could be spending my summer!

  • Lanae

    I know that the helmets have a safety-oriented purpose, but they just make me laugh because the dogs just look too cute wearing them!

  • My dog, Bullitt, truly is my shining star. I recently underwent two months of radiation and I was feeling really miserable. He was by my side contstantly. I would wake up and he would be sleeping beside me with his paw on my arm. It is like he is my little protector. No matter how miserable I felt, he always cheered me up. Now that I am feeling better, he is still my little shining star because he is still with me all the time. He is an amazing little guy and I love him so much.

  • Pamela

    My little buddy Gilligan needs a helmut!! He’s got a soft spot on his head where the bones haven’t grown together fully. Besides, a 7 month old 3lb Chorkie would totally ROCK a helmut!! Who wouldn’t want to see that?!

  • ALL of our dogs are ROCK STARS! These dogs have been abandoned by their owners, left at shelters with their worlds turned upside-down. We take them in, help them learn to trust and find them fantastic new homes! They are the most resilient, forgiving and loving animals.

    If I won this fantastic gift, I would donate it to our Annual Get-Together as a raffle prize, so that one of our deserving Rock Stars would get to ride in style like the celebridog they are!

  • My Sophia is a star because she healed my heart after losing our little Jack Russel to cancer.

  • Louisebear2

    All 3 of my dogs are deserving of star status because they are the best dogs in the world! Each dog was a someone else’s throw-a-way dog, adopted off of the street as an adult. They are all wonderful companions and have traveled the east coast with us from SC to ME and Canada on vacations over the past 14 years. All of them are up there in years now, at ages 17+, 15 and 14 yo. I know our time together is waning; I treasure each day with them.

  • Lanae

    Whoever wins the helmet is going to be one stylin’ pup!

  • Exercise is just as vital as calorie intake when it comes to losing weight, but the one thing which really delivered for me was wu-yi tea, it can be checked out in the resource box underneath, they have a small number of free trials in stock, it was featured in Reader’s Digest and CNN. I shed twenty pounds, it really does produce results!
