Ho, Ho, Ho! Holiday Give-A-Way From Hartz!

We're starting the present-giving holidays a little early here at Bocci's Beefs. We're like Oprah-we love to give away a few of our favorite things!
Parental Unit connected with representatives from Hartz at BlogPaws West in Denver a few months ago and was really impressed with their toy selection-in fact, she received a green, Dura Play natural latex ball for me in her swag bag, which I've been playing with, inside and out, since she got back.

Here I am keeping that ball in a safe place.

So the generous folks from Hartz sent me a few toys to try out...and get this: We will give away six toys to six different winners!!!! There are so many toys to give away that we'll do them in two installments: We'll randomly choose three winners from this post (all three will receive the same toy, the Dura Play ball), and we will choose three more winners next Monday, November 29th for the "Tuff Stuff Nose Diver."
As always, we make it easy to enter-just check out the information at the end of this post. 


                           So here we go!

  Here I am checking out the three toys that I received.
From L-R: Hartz Dura Play ball (size Medium), Dura Play Football, Hartz "Tuff Stuff Nose Diver"

Just so you all know, we also received a package of Hartz "Crunch and Clean Cat Treats" for you know who. Other than the three toys and the treats, we were not compensated for writing this post.

The two toys we've chosen to give away are the Dura Play Ball (either small or medium) and the Tuff Stuff Nose Diver. Note: For this post we will give away three Dura Play Balls, and will focus only on that toy. We will give away three "Tuff Stuff Nose Divers" next Monday.
(We did not choose the football, although it is great-but it only comes in one size and so might not fit small to medium size dogs.)

Here's a close-up of the Dura Play Ball, size medium.


About Hartz's line of Dura Play Toys: Each toy features their trademarked "Power Play Core" "that enhances durability and provides an unmatched chew experience." They're covered with foam filled latex that Parental Unit and I really love! Each toy is soft and bounces like crazy, which is one of my favorite things to do (who doesn't love to try and catch a bouncing toy?!) And they are suitable for water play because they float! And one last thing: According to Hartz, dogs are not color blind-they have "dichromatic vision which allows them to see only certain colors of the color spectrum", and Hartz says that the vibrant colors of the Dura Play toys are visible to dogs-who knew?
For more information on all of Hartz's toys check out this link: www.hartz.com

So here I am playing with my "blue" Dura Play, funky shaped ball-Oh yeah, I almost forgot: they squeak!!!!! What with their wild bouncing and squeaking, it almost feels like I'm nabbing a squirrel!


This picture is a bit blurry because I'm running to capture it.

            
                                Got it!

Ha! Ready for another throw!

Now all you have to do to be eligible to win is to comment on this post sometime before Wednesday, November 24th at 1:00pm. I'll randomly pick three numbers between one and 25 and the comments that match those numbers will win. I'll announce the lucky winners later that day-right when you're all preparing Thanksgiving dinner! Ha!
Note: For at least this drawing, only those living in the U.S. are eligible to win.

Good luck one and all!

Dear Bocci,
My chew toys are all chewed up...I had a very pretty pink rubber diamond ring... GONE! I'm really hard on my toys are you sure those Hartz toys will hold up? Yes, I see color and am partial to "girlie" things even though I'm a boy dog. Love, Ernie
