I received an unexpected package in the mail not too long ago. Inside I found a letter to me and two books. Strange, I thought, until I read the letter. It was from some furiends of mine and yours, Dog and Cat. What I read in that letter shocked me!
We need some assistance and we did not know where else to turn, so we are writing to you. You see, together we have lived with a human companion for the past 5 years. At first, it was an exciting time. A new house, we were each given our own bed in which to sleep, new toys were brought home on a regular basis, life was good. In fact, when our relationship with our human was in the early stages, he even brought different food home for us to try. Every day was a new experience. We couldn't have been happier.
Then things started to take a turn for the worse. First, the food stopped changing. The same thing, day after day, no new and exciting meals. The new toys stopped coming. In fact, Dog has been gnawing on the same bone for the last two years. He is so ashamed; he hides the bone when guests come over. Cat has been wearing the same bell for a year and a half, and the tingly thing no longer tingles. It no longer is a purrfect existence. We thought maybe our owner had found another pet, but we realized he had simply become uninterested in us.
The other day we were surfing the web (we were bored), and we came upon these two great new books. Cat Lover's Daily Companion and Dog Lover's Daily Companion. They seem purrfect! They seem to be just what our owner needs to start to enjoy us again.
Can you believe that? Their parents, humans, Mom and Dad, two-leggers, bipeds, etc. have become bored with them? How can we let something like that happen in our world? Below is a photo of the books and a description provided by the publisher. You can click on the book to go to the publisher's website for more information.

If you feel like your humans have become bored with you and are not paying you the attention they once were you should certainly put your name in for this giveaway. How surprised would your parents be to get a book from you for Christmas? Much less one that they can actually learn from? And if you look really closely at the dog book, that is a doxie on the front! You can't get a more perfect book! ;o)
I had my Mom review the books and she feels like they have loads of great information for pet lovers, even if they are not uninterested in their cat/dog. Since my parents have had a chance to review the books I thought it would be nice if we shared them with you guys. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. I will put everyone's name in a dog bowl and randomly pull out the winners (one for each book). Feel free to tell your furiends about my giveaway. Names will be accepted until midnight on December 12th. That way Mom has time to package up the books and get them in the mail for you in time for Christmas.
