The sponsor of this blog, CANIDAE Natural Pet Foods, selects one reader every three months to receive a free six month supply of their premium quality pet food. It’s yet another gesture of goodwill from a company I’ve come to know as being exceedingly generous and kind to both their two- and four-legged friends. The free pet food winner is chosen at random from every new reader who subscribed to the Responsible Pet Ownership blog via email during the past quarter, and they get to pick any formula of CANIDAE dog food or FELIDAE cat food.
The lucky winner from last quarter is Heather Cann of California, or perhaps I should I say Jasper Cann, since he is the one who will actually be enjoying the food! Jasper is an adorable 2-year-old Miniature Poodle that Heather said is “very sweet, a little spunky and always playful.” Heather’s family adopted Jasper from a local shelter in 2009 when he was about 4 months old.
They searched rescues and shelters for 2 months for a dog that was more asthma/allergy friendly before they found Jasper. “He was a small, scruffy little puppy at the time and looked more Fozzie the Bear than a poodle. But Jasper was totally fearless of our toddler Stella, so we knew he was a good fit for our family,” said Heather.
According to Heather, Jasper often gets mistaken for a terrier/poodle mix because he has a “natural” tail that follows him like a horse’s tail when he runs really fast (awwww, how cute!). Jasper enjoys the dog park, long walks, sneaking Cheerios from little Stella, and playing keep-away food games with the family’s five chickens, who always manage to keep him in line.
The Cann’s are already fans of CANIDAE pet food – they’ve been feeding Jasper the All Life Stages formula for the past five months, and Heather said he is thriving on it. She wrote: “Jasper was diagnosed with Gastroesophageal reflux disease last year and is sensitive to many dog foods, but is in excellent health on CANIDAE. We are happy to have found a holistic dog food our Jasper does so well on. Thanks CANIDAE!”
Now, Jasper will get to chow down on a free six-month supply of the CANIDAE ALS formula he loves. ALS is made from four high quality meat meals (chicken, turkey, lamb, and fish) and also contains balanced Omega 6 & 3 fatty acids, wholesome brown rice and essential vitamins and minerals. Like all CANIDAE pet food products, the ALS formula contains no corn, wheat, soy, grain fractions or fillers, and is naturally preserved.
Congratulations, Jasper! And for those of you who have yet to subscribe to the Responsible Pet Ownership blog – do it before the end of March to be entered in our next drawing for free pet food. Who knows, your dog (or cat) could be the next big winner!
