Day 1 - Johann's Annual Howling Howliday Giveaway!

Yeah!!! It's here!

Today is the first day of Johann's Annual Howling Howliday Giveaway!

We're spinning with excitement because we'll be bringing you 18 days of giveaways every weekday from December 1st thru December 24th! So let's get started...

We have two contributors today who have donated very cool products for our winner.

One of today's contributors is Nurtured Pets who have donated a five foot roll of their pawsome Anti-ChewStrip Home™ Protection that helps stop pets from chewing on those hard surfaces like tables and chair legs. And they've donated a 1.7 oz.. jar of their NurturSalve that's 100% Organic and helps sooth and soften paw pads, chapped noses and minor abrasions.

Our other contributor today is Schiffer Publishing who has donated the amazing books 'Baking for Dogs' and 'Cooking for Dogs.' Both books are by the renowned Friederike Friedel, owner of the popular Dog's Deli in Germany.

'Baking for Dogs' shares healthful, delicious treats recipes using natural, healthy ingredients. Recipes includes such treats as Amarettini, Valentine Hearts, Summer Muffins, Blueberry Scones, Liver Dumplings, Salmon Cookies and more! 'Cooking for Dogs' includes more than twenty of the latest doggy delicacies for your canine friend; all healthy, all natural snacks and meals that are easy to make.

Also, we are very proud to announce and highlight Johann's Howling Howliday Giveaway designated charity this year - A Place To Bark!

Over three years ago we met Bernie Berlin, who operates A Place To Bark, online as we were both early adopters of Twitter. Over the years we've watched through Twitter and Facebook as Bernie and her dedicated volunteers have pulled thousands of dogs from kill-shelters, healed them, trained them, and transported them to shelters all over the country to give them a chance to find their furever homes.

We've always admired the no-kill philosophy that guides Bernie's invaluable work, and we wanted to help. So you will see A Place To Bark's donation widget on our sidebar. Help us help Bernie and her volunteers save even more pups that have a limited time in many of the kill-shelters throughout the country. Let's help her continue and thrive with the good work she and her staff are accomplishing through a little donation this year!

We encourage you to donate whatever you can, $25, $15, $10, $5, even $1 would be of great help! So get started, donate the donate button on the widget just to the right, or click here.
