Fabulous Dog Treat Giveaway!

I discovered Lainey's Pawtique, an adorable shop for all things canine, just last month. It seems the Pawtique's namesake, Ms. Lainey herself, looks adorably similar to my very own sass-butt puggle. I quickly fell in long-distance love with that sweet little Lainey, how could I not when she looks so like Dave?

See the resemblance?



Well as it turns out, Ms Lainey has Davey's dream job, she is one of two head taste-testers for the homemade dog treats featured at Lainey's Pawtique. Seriously, that is Davey's dream job. He eats in his sleep; he is sleep chewing this very moment.

Here are the envy of every dog in the Chicago area, Lainey and her sister Chloe:




Davey did have the distinct privilege of trying out a slew of treats from Lainey last week, including Milk & Blueberry cookies, Crispy Apple cookies (Davey's absolute favorite), Pumpkin Pie bread, Rawhide Sprinkles, Apple Pupcakes, Chocolate Coconut cookies and Easter Rainbow cookies. Dave is one mighty spoiled (and happy) puggle! We don't want to make you too jealous, but here he is enjoying a yummers Milk & Blueberry cookie:


And a Rawhide Sprinkle:

Dave LOVED every single treat he tried. I got him to do things so enthusiastically when I mentioned that he could have a "Lainey Cookie". For example, we took some on walks and Dave's normal wild-man howling when he sees another dog quickly disappeared when I pulled out a miraculous Lainey cookie!

Those of you who know Dave are aware of how much he loves food in general. But there are a few things I love about the treats from Lainey's Pawtique.

  • First of all they are made from all human-grade ingredients, something you simply can't find at the store.
  • You can smell and see the wholesome ingredients used- things like blueberries and apples. And yes, I tasted one... not bad, but don't ask me to potty outside for one.
  • Every every recipe is lovingly altered and enthusiastically tested in Lainey's own kitchen- so you know it is going to be well received by your dog, not to mention healthier than an dull ole milkbone.
  • The size of the cookie treats are perfect for putting in a kong. They don't get stuck and they aren't messy- I love that!
  • Every shipment is adorably packaged and made fresh when you order. How fantastic is that?
  • A portion of proceeds from every sale is donated to a dog or human cancer charity.

So, now that all you doggies out there are all salivating let me tell you the wonderful news! I have TWO yes TWO great packages of treats to giveaway. The First prize winner will get an amazing Lainey's Cookie Bucket filled with an assortment of tons of cookies! Plus a package of Rawhide Sprinkles! This prize, worth $24, is courtesy of Lainey herself.


I'm also giving away a second prize of THREE bags of Lainey's cookies to one lucky dog out there. Here is a teaser of what you can choose from:




If you simply can't wait to win, stop by Lainey's Pawtique at her website or her etsy shop and pick up some home-baked lovin for your pup. Currently if you buy 2 bags of cookies you get the 3rd one free on Etsy, a great deal if you ask me. Items start at 4 bucks! Plus there are a ton of other cute items for your canine and feline friends.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway! There are lots of ways to enter and I am so excited to send these out because I know your dog will love them.
How to Enter
The giveaway is limited to the U.S. and Canada only. The winners will be picked by the randomizer, but Dave will be rooting for the puggles!

If you do not have a blogger account you may e-mail your entries to me at pestkaj(at)yahoo(dot)com or send me a facebook message.

First entry (must be done for other entries to count)- Visit Lainey's etsy shop and tell me which treat you think your dog would like best. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5236245

I'm going healthy on the doggage and picking the Laineys Cheesey Garden Vegetable. We've tried sneaking carrots and veggies to Bo, but he's too smart for us. I'm banking on him gobbling these down like tiny chunks of the cheese he loves so dearly. The other two will eat just about anything..no worries there.

Hi! So great to meet you. Dave is one very handsome dog--in fact, he's just about the only thing that could rip our attention away from all of those amazing treats!

I have two puggles! I must say I have never met anyone else in the blog world with puggles. Usually no body knows what kind of dog I am talking about, lol. Those Easter baskets are calling their names.

Everything looks so good! I think I would like the Pumpkin Pie Bread the best. I remember Mom baking pumpkin bread Christmas time and it sure smelled good. She would never let me have any since she was not sure if everything was safe for dogs. I bet Lainey's Mom knows what is safe and yummy!

Hi, Once upon a time my fiance and I went to the animal shelter to adopt a Puggle, we had our hearts set on it.. All the way there the excitement built. We got there and the Puggle didn't fit our bill I am sorry to say. This poor Puggle just didn't want to come home with us.. So Rocky Balboa Cairn/Yorkie Terrier came home with us instead.. He is asking you not to hold it against him that he is not a puggle. He would love to try the Laineys Cheesey Garden Vegetable doggie treats. He knows he would love them as he will Sit, Dance, STay, Walk on hind legs, and speak for just a piece of cheese.. Wooh think what he will do for these great treats.
Thanks for the Giveaways for our Great pets.

I think that my Shadow (Lab/Newfoundland) would prefer the cheesy veggies. You see he is diabetic and should not really eat treats very often, but his Vet said he could have meats and veggies, so to me that is close enough.
