We were contacted a few weeks ago with an offer to receive some items from Merial to see what we thought about them. We said sure. We like free stuff :)
Well we were sent two of both of the items and so we are going to give stuff away.
The first item we got is The Merck/Merial Manual for Pet Health.

Mom says this is a really nice book that covers many animals and things about them. The dog section has dog basics such as routine care, behavior, and a section on disorders and diseases that is almost 300 pages by itself. There is a section on stupid cats. It also covers birds,fish, rats, rabbits and potbellied pigs among others. Mom was excited to see turtles in there.
It also has a section called Special subjects that covers emergencies, diagnostic test, drugs and vaccines, and poisoning plus others. We are happy to have one of these to give away. We are sorry to say we can only send the book within the United States as it is very large.

We also received these lovely collars.

It is a Paws to Save pets collar and if you purchase one of them the proceeds go to the foundation and the American Veterinary Medical Foundation. It isn't a very good picture but the blue ribbon is actually a collar. :)
Please go check out the website here. We had never heard about what Merial is doing and we think it is great. You can purchase a collar there also if you would like. We are going to give away both of the collars we received. Any of our friends from anywhere can go into the drawing for the collars. We have the large sizes to give away which are 12" to 22". We know that won't fit some of you.
So if you would like to go into the drawing for either of these items please just leave a comment with which one or both you would like to be entered into and we will do a drawing on Wednesday.


  1. OOOOO. Mom loves giveaways!!! She says the book would be great and one of those collars would fit me! Sunny!!
    Count us in!!!
    (When is anyone ever going to ask us to try out stuff and send free stuff?!?!?)

  2. pee ess has Mom ever mentioned we have a Cockatiel? I don't think so. We'll have to put up his picture. He was a rescue dude.
    Hugs again!!

  3. That's some khool stuff - but since I recently was the winner of a oxymoronikh titled book PURRY LOGIKH I'll pass!

    Happy Weekend Pal!


  4. Hey Peanut...what neato products! I think all us DWB'ers should get our office help to get free stuff & then we can give it away...your mamma is very cool.

    I'd like to be in the drawing for the book...I like to have bedtime stories read to me at night..might as well up the ante & stop reading about the 3 little pigs & further my medical education.

    Love & Licks,

    ps...Since you inspired me, I'm going to have a drawing sometime this coming spring...not deadline yet...can't trust the help.

  5. Hi, Peanut!
    You are so nice giving away the book and the collars!
    I am going to check the site!
    Have a great weekend
    Kisses and hugs

  6. pot bellied pig!! my mum alwiz think they are interesting to hv... juz imagine we walking with a PIG!! nobody in my place hv it

  7. We totally want to be entered into the drawing for the book! (Even Wilbur, but we will be fine if you ignore him.) We just got new collars, so we'll let some other pup win that. (Besides, Kat says blue is not her color.)

  8. Hey there
    Thanks for reminding our Mom she has a giveaway too, maybe we'll do it next week. She's a slacker.

    Sign us up for the book, I'm too much of a studmuffin for that collar to fit. Unless I wear it as a bracelet, ha ha.


  9. We think we would like to be entered into the giveaway for the book. We just got new collars made by Patience, so we don't need those.

  10. ohhh me me!!! We love free stuff too :)

  11. hi Peanut, please enter us in the drawing for a collar. that's totally our size. then if we win we will just have to decide who gets to wear it (probably Bailey, since he's the pitiful dog right now)

    and guess what kiddo! you are gonna get a dog pause bowl! we hope that it will help eat slower. you will probably hate it for that reason. hee hee! mom is gonna take us to the post office this afternoon to mail it, so you will have it soon.


  12. Heya Peanut,
    Our mom is in LVT school so we already have a Merck manual (or two) so we don't need to win that. Our new foster Sophie needs new collar so count us in to try to win the bigger collar. Maybe we should have a giveawy. We could give away our bag-lady Shiloh.

  16. What nice freebies but mom says that we have too many collars already so we'll pass on the collars but the book looks like a wealth of information - so please enter us in the drawing for the book!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  17. Peanut, dude, tell your mom that we got that raised dog bowl from this web site

    I don't know if they still have them or not because mine is older than me.

    Momma also says that if your mom likes Denis Leary then SHE MUST READ THAT BOOK! My mom gets her books from the library because otherwise we would be donating all our kibble money to Amazon. We have a cool lirbrary network that lets you order books from anywhere in Master Chew Sits.

    Is your dad coming home for Christmas?


  18. ME ME ME ME ME!!!

    I would love to enter my name in the hat for the collar....



  19. Free stuff rocks like Petra rocks!

    I'm afraid the collar would hurt my senstivie little neck so I'll have to bypass that offer; it's a cool collar, though.

  20. Bummer, I was really hoping I'd get to win Flash! Oh well, I'd still like to be entered for both drawings! Is there a section in that book for cats that think they're dogs?

  21. Hey Peanut! Woo are so sweet to give away such cool prizes!!!!

  22. That is a pretty cool collar. Not sure if it is heeler proof. Louie and Callie are chewers!! Louie even has managed to chew his rabies tag.

  24. Hey, Peanut!

  27. Uh oh. I live in Canada so I don't qualify, but that looks like a great book to own. You're very lucky! Hope you're having a good week, Peanut and Flash!


  28. Hey Peanut! I would like to be in both drawings! My neck is 13" so it would fit! Thanks Peanut!

  29. Oh you guys are like super nice to share your good stuff.

    wally t.

    ps. I hope your mom aced her finals!

  30. Hey - too bad the collar is too big for me and my mom is a vet tech so she already knows most of what is in that book. Got any cookies to give away :)

  31. That is a real nice collar!

  32. Mom has that vet guide and always has her nose in it. She likes it because it covers everything from the hamster to the horse and us in between. Dad threatens to hide it because she always thinks the worst. Very cool collar too.

  33. Nice giveaways! Cool collar!

  34. Very cool giveaways! sorry we haven't been online to see them until today!
