It’s hard to believe–really, really hard to believe–but this Friday will mark Tiki’s SEVENTH “gotcha” day when we adopted her at our local shelter. She’s not our most recent adoptee (18-month-old Lucky has that distinction) but Tiki’s arrival was definitely one that impacted our lives in a major way. With her adoption, just six months after adopting Irie, we decided to switch from travel guidebook writing to pet writing, and we launched DogTipper!
Over these past seven years, Tiki has become an integral part of our daily lives. Since we both work at home full-time, all of our pets play a big role in every part of our day. Tiki and Irie are definitely “working” dogs in our home, too, testing products and posing for photos.
Some of those photos bring back laughs–like last year’s Halloween photo shoot when Tiki gave me the look for daring to dress her in anything beyond a collar or harness. Or the time Tiki decided that she’d roll in the dirt–minutes after we’d just given her a bath…
Or the time, just this spring, when Tiki decided that she’d claim the chair in a beach cottage we rented for a few days…
Or Tiki’s afternoon nap, which always takes place on the bed, with her head on my pillow…
Those moments — so minor when they happen — are the ones that really stand out years later.
Enter the Nutrish “Fur Real Pet Moments”
We know that you also have some great photos of your pets — and the only thing more fun than sharing them as a meme is the chance to win a great prize! Rachael Ray Nutrish has kicked off the “Fur Real Pet Moments” contest, a super fun way to enter to win a one-year supply of Nutrish AND $1,500. Entering is so much fun because it uses the “Fur Real Pet Moments” meme generator to celebrate those fun times, just like I did with the photos of Tiki above.
As I mentioned, along with the $1,500 cash prize, the winner will receive a year’s supply of Rachael Ray’s Nutrish food, all made with simple ingredients like real meat and wholesome veggies. And I especially LOVE that a portion of Rachael’s personal proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue to help animals in need. Rachael Ray founded Rachael’s Rescue to help those forgotten pets and today her proceeds go to help fund veterinary supplies and treatment as well as food and care for those homeless animals.
Please be sure to enter the “Fur Real Pet Moments” contest!
