Winner of The Cutest Pet Photo Contest

The Cutest Pet Photo Winner is…

Sandy Newman!!!!

Choosing a winner for this contest was no easy task. We received a very diverse collection of submissions, one as cute as the next, but this picture just spoke to me. I feel like Sandy is looking right at me and that she may even start talking… “Hey Col! Let’s go for a walk and then we can snuggle. Oh, and don’t forget my fresh water and treats.” I just want to kiss her adorable snout.

As the winner of our contest, Robin Newman will receive a $250 gift certificate to Pet Nanny. She can either keep it for herself or gift to another, whichever she prefers.

Robin was kind enough to write a little about Sandy…

Sandy is almost 6 years old and is a Border Collie/Retriever mix.  She is highly intelligent and loves to chase the tennis ball for exercise.  She has also become a fan of the Frisbee since the ball got really hard to find in all the snow.  She knows quite a few commands and is my ‘guardian’.  The Border Collie really comes out in her as she keeps the other 3 dogs in line, especially our youngest and her best buddy Jackson.  She alerts me if one of the other dogs is in trouble, needs help or wants to come in or go out.  Although she is shy at first, she is extremely sweet and affectionate once she knows you.  Not too long ago, my son needed to do a behavioral project for school.  Of course he waited until the last minute.  He needed to teach a behavior to a person or an animal.  We decided the easiest and quickest way to success was to teach Sandy a trick.  He had to film Sandy before learning the command and after learning the command.  He decided to teach Sandy to roll over.  It literally took him 2 minutes before Sandy performed the trick perfectly and he got it on film for his project.  Sandy got him a good grade.

Thank you to everyone that participated in the contest. I absolutely loved all of the photos.

Next year I plan on running the contest a little differently. I most definitely want a cutest cat and cutest dog category and quite possibly some others categories as well. Picking one winner was just way too difficult!

How To Add Years to Your Pet’s Life

I subscribe to Family Circle, a monthly subscription magazine, that provides family-oriented activities, pet, food advice and other information, among many other subjects revolving around the family. As I was reading, they had a very well-written and informative article about how to add years to your dog’s life, and the article was titled, “Longevity Plan: Five Ways To Add Years To Your Pet’s Life,” with a contest involved as well. There will be more about the contest towards the end of this post.

Several of these tips we have read before, and some we don’t hear enough of; at times, we need a healthy reminder of how to take care of our pets and their well-being. After all, they are our family! There are five tips altogether in the article, but I am including three that I feel are the most important for our readers.

According to writer Lynya Floyd, the number one priority in ensuring longevity for your pet’s life is:

1. Do A Weekly Work-Up-Lynya states that any sign of “abnormalities or red flags, such as pale gums, discharge, or lump, need to be addressed right away with your vet.”

2. Exercise Your Pet– Not only is it good for you, it’s good for your beloved pet too! And what better way, than to stay active with your pet. Like us humans, Floyd has found that “diabetes has increased in 16% of cats and 32% of dogs.” The reason? No or less exercise. Simply walking with your pet, or any cardio activity is essential for your pet.

3. Always Spay and Neuter Your Pet-Not only does this help control pet population, as has been stated numerous times for years, spaying and neutering also adds to the length of their life. Floyd found that “the average life span of a neutered male cat is 40% longer than that of a non-sterilized one,” according to Karen Halligan, D.V.M., the director of veterinary services at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

To read the rest of the article, and find out more tips and what not to spend money on for your pets, please visit:

In reference to a contest Family Circle is running, five readers will win a $100 gift for veterinary visits, with thanks to VPI Pet Insurance. To enter the contest, visit:

InFURvention: A Creative Contest To Become Involved In Your Cat’s Preventative Care

In partnership with the world’s largest vetrinary clinic, Portland, Oregon based Banfield Hospital and Victoria Stillwell are joining together in raising awareness regarding how essential and effective vetrinary visits are for them, with a contest. Along with raising awareness to keep your cat healthy and well, Banfield and Stillwell provide tips and suggestions to understand and know when your cat is not well. Some of these include increased thirst, weight loss, bad breath, and more.

Stillwell is a widely recognized and respected dog trainer, best known for her television show on Animal Planet, It’s Me Or The Dog. Currently, she has launched Victoria Stillwell Positively Dog Training, which connects dog owners to certified world-wide positive reinforcement dog trainers.

To enter this contest, please follow the steps:

1. Create a video of you attempting to place your cat in its carrier, whether successful or not.

2. Use the hashtag #inFURvention in the video’s title.

3. Upload your video to YouTube.

The contest ends on August 17th, and the winner will be given a year’s worth of free preventative care, and an in-home visit from Victoria Stillwell.

This contest is receiving quite a bit of attention whether it be the news or various media outlets. This contest is an important and crucial one as there has been a significant decline in veterinary visits that are extremely vital for the safety and health of a pet. With felines, their health deterioration is much less noticable than it is in dogs, and this is why Banfield wants to focus more attention on cats specifically for this contest. They are also much more difficult in getting them to the veterinarian.
