Arthur The Dog Who Crossed the Jungle to Find a Home

I was provided a copy of the book Arthur for my review, and the publisher is providing copies for our giveaway.

Do you remember the news story not so long ago about a plucky little dog who joined a team of extreme racers in the jungle? The little dog joined them along the crazy terrain, even jumping in after them during a section of the race that required a kayak! Well, you may already know what happened, but this book tells the full story about the little dog named Arthur who traveled more than 100 miles to find a new home.

Even knowing the story ends happily (you know this right from the start of the book), there were still moments when I worried about the outcome and what would become of this brave dog! The story of Arthur takes us into the world of adventure racing, which is a grueling, body punishing, world!

Mikael Lindnord is the captain of a Swedish racing team on a 435 mile race through the jungles and mountains of South America. One afternoon while they are at a check point he sees a scruffy, but oddly calm and peaceful looking, dog. Little did he know this pup would adopt him as his own and follow along the rest of their journey.

Mikael decided he would save the dog, now named Arthur, and bring home to Sweden, whatever it took. It wasn’t going to be easy though! Making through the jungle was just the beginning!

A super fun and interesting read, Arthur is a story that once again shows the bond between dogs and people. If the story captivated you and made you smile when you first read about it online, you will want to read the full story!

Luckily, we have 3 copies to give away to our readers. This giveaway is open to those in the USA and Canada. The book releases today if you would like to order your own copy, you can do so here.

Cats I’ve Known (and a giveaway)

We had the chance to read a fun new book called Cats I’ve Known: On Love, Loss, and Being Graciously Ignored. It is full of stories of all the cats the author has known and loved, each cat having it’s own section. Some cats are pets, others are cats that she meets in Philadelphia’s streets, alleys, houses, apartments, and bookstores. All of them have their own distinct personalities!

It’s a fun read, as each cat is so different, and yet they share qualities. This is something all cats owners are sure to already know, but I have a feeling you will see cats you love in each of the cats in the book too.

We have five copies to giveaway! You will get to read it before it’s even released in October. This giveaway will be open to those in the USA and Canada. Please enter using the form below:

A Dog’s Purpose (and a giveaway)

The movie, A Dog’s Purpose, which is based on the book by the same name, just released for Blu-Ray and DVD today!  We have two copies to giveaway, so be sure to enter the giveaway below!

When I first started reading the book, I almost didn’t finish. You see, I was already crying at the first chapter.

The movie has all the humor, love, and yes, tear jerking moments that the book does (although condensed of course). Be sure to have tissues ready, but don’t worry, this isn’t a sad movie, it’s very sweet, and especially sentimental if you have ever had a dog.

The movie takes us through journey between owners and dogs, and the relationship we have together. I love the theme, to love, protect, comfort, and always find a way back home.

The Blu-Ray has a ton of fun features including:

  • Deleted scenes
  • Outtakes
  • Lights, Camera, Woof- A behind the scenes look at the making of the movie
  • A Writer’s Purpose- Learn the story behind W. Bruce Cameron’s beloved best selling novel.

Here is the trailer:

Get fit with your pet, with a Misfit Ray!

The weather is warming up for most of us now, and it’s time to get outside and spend more time with our pets! Awhile back I got to attend a super fun tech afternoon for bloggers. They gave us some goodies including a fitness tracker, and since I already have a tracker I use and love, I thought it would be fun to giveaway theMisfit Ray to one lucky reader!

As you may already know, I love tracking my steps. It really helps me make sure that I am moving more during the day, of course, our pets can help make sure that happens too!

What I like about the Misfit is that there aren’t batteries to charge, it runs on batteries that you replace, meaning you only have to think about it every 6 months or so. Kind of nice right? I also like the simple style which can be easily worn with other bracelets or a watch. You can also buy an accessory so you can wear it as a necklace if you wanted.

The Misfit also tracks cycling, soccer, tennis, basketball, swimming and more in addition to steps, calories and distance. There is of course an app, which is crucial since there isn’t any info on the tracker itself. I’m also a bit jealous that the Misfit is water resistant to 50 meters. It’s a pretty sweet little gadget, I would have kept it all to myself if I didn’t already have something. 🙂

This giveaway is open to those in the USA only. Good luck!
