Heading To BlogPaws Conference—Nashville!

I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be representing the Puccini Foundation at the 2015 BlogPaws Pet Blogging and Social Media Conference in Nashville starting tomorrow! And I'll continue our relationship by helping guide their social media efforts. Speaking for Bocci and Bella (as I often do), we couldn't be more proud to be affiliated with this not-for-profit foundation dedicated to "The hope of a future for for pets and people...cancer free."

When you read Puccini's story, you'll understand the passion that drives this foundation, and why the years of work dedicated to raising awareness of pet cancers, supporting and funding cancer research and helping pet parents who can't afford cancer treatment for their pets, is just the beginning. Puccini's story is really one of inspiration and hope—hope for a cancer free future for all of us.  

We challenge each of you to join the movement to beat pet cancer by first, familiarizing yourself with the warning signs of pet cancer and sharing this knowledge with your friends and family, and joining us throughout the conference and beyond on the Puccini Foundation's Facebook page and on @puccinirules

As always, thanks for your support and all you do to help companion animals. We're behind you all the way, Parental Unit!

Memorial Day Tribute To Our Human And Canine Heroes

            The SOFK9 Memorial in Fayetteville, North Carolina

As we pause this Memorial Day to remember our fallen human and canine soldiers, please take a minute to understand the Special Operations Community and their unique bond with dogs of war. The SOF K9 Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to officially honoring the dogs of war: "Our dogs have saved countless lives and earned a hero's memorial." We couldn't agree more.

A hearty thank you, this Memorial Day, to both human and canine who have served or are currently serving in the United States military. Parental Unit would like to give a special mention to both her grandfather, Guiseppe DiMartino, who as a recent immigrant from Italy, fought in W.W. I, and to his first born child, Louis DeMartin, Parental Unit's late father, who fought in W.W. II.

Trio Of Dogs Blend Their Voices...

A cacophony of howls by three beautiful dogs clearly channeling their inner wolf. It's probably a full moon, too.

Zuke's Latest Treats: Genuine Beef Jerky Trio Giveaway!

The latest in Zuke's amazing line of super high quality treats: Genuine Jerky Treats come in three different beef recipes (Original, Barbecue and Teriyaki)  and you can win a three pack for your best friend right here. See directions at the end of this post to enter!
You know we're a fan of Zuke's and have brought you a number of Zuke's treat giveaways in the past. Thanks to Zuke's generosity, we recently received three packages of Zuke's Genuine Jerky Beef Treats, one in each delicious flavor, for our review.  Zuke's is also graciously providing a three pack of these treats for our winner. We have received no other compensation for this post and the opinions are, of course, our own.

Here's my trio of treats—notice who's sniffin' things out already. Full disclosure: I've eaten almost a full bag, so I know how delicious they are!

You also know how Parental Unit loves to examine ingredients for both her food and mine with microscopic precision...Well, Zuke's got her attention with "100% Grass-fed New Zealand Beef" as the first ingredient, with only a few natural flavorings to add to the "crazy good" taste of pure dried beef. Although Parental Unit doesn't eat much meat, when she does, it's exclusively free-range and grass-fed—she's long known the superior quality, nutritional value and taste of pasture raised meat. And I, of course, deserve no less.

Parental Unit thinks these treats are so special she even set the table for me...The plate is holding a combination of  Zuke's Genuine Jerky Treat recipes.

She also thinks she's going to get away with giving me just one (hehehe). By the way, don't expect long jerky strips, these treats are presented in nicely-sized pieces, perfect for training...or just because.

                     Hmmm...here's what the plate looks like.

                                       I'll eat my fill!

Oops! Parental Unit waited for a good photo a bit too long...We're both happy I didn't drag the plate onto the floor!

But wait, there's more... Please take a few minutes to read Zuke's founding story and company philosophies—they're celebrating their 20th anniversary this year! Zuke's also donates a portion of every sale to the Dog and Cat Cancer Fund—#FueltheLove, #FueltheCure!

                         Now on to our giveaway!  

One lucky Bocci's Beefs reader will win a trio of Zuke's Genuine Jerky Beef treats!

                    Please follow the Rafflecopter directions.
