Oliver Investigates Petstages' Mini Nesting Mat

by Oliver

This is my new soothing bedding. It's called a Petstages Mini Nesting Mat and it's made especially for dogs like me to root around in, digging and rearranging. I love redecorating my bedding, and this is the perfect thing for that.  Mom has written a review over at All Things Dog Blog, but this is my personal, private show...just for you. 

I guess I should tell you that she's giving some of these neato cushy blanket thingys away over at her blog. I just have cool pictures. That's okay too, right? Hope you win!

If you don't get to be one of the winners, you can order your Mini Nesting Mat through the Amazon ad at this link or on All Things Dog Blog. The product is also being sold through many pet specialty stores, so be sure to ask for it by name. Happy Nesting!

Full disclosure: All Things Dog Blog has been provided with a free sample to do this review of the Petstages Mini Nesting Mat. We have not been paid to provide our opinion of this product, and the opinion provided is our own.

Can I Go to Blogpaws Too?
Oliver's all packed for Blogpaws and I have to stay home. Now does that seem fair to you? I'd like to go meet Toki and Snotface and Judy....and all the other Anipals that mom got to meet last year. Maybe Delta will sponsor me for a seat on the plane? I Can wear my Super Bowl hat and tell the pilots about SuperDog Sunday. They'll totally want to join in the fun, right?

Jolly Pets Hat and Tshirt Awarded

Hats for Dogs? Hmmm....
Anybody remember this photo from the Super Dog Sunday Blog Hop? I had a ton of fun taking photos in all sorts of football themes. We're planning on making that an annual event. Hope you'll join us this year.

Speaking of Super Dog Sunday, my mom has footballs for all of you that are attending Blogpaws. Some of the pup moms and dads that didn't get to participate last year said it was because they did not have a football-themed item for a photo. So we're gonna help this year.

We have cool footballs to give away for your photo. Oliver will be showing them off on Wednesday at Wordless Wednesday. You can check him out on All Things Dog Blog Wednesday.

Now for the big announcement. We've taken entries for a free hat and Tshirt from our friends at Jolly Pets. Watch for more reviews of their products coming soon. Today's winner is Kirby. To collect your prize, Kirby needs to send his shipping address to We can't wait to see a picture of Kirby in his cool hat.

Speaking of free stuff, have you been over to Fido's Freebie Friday for the giveaway linky? There's bunch of giveaways listed there--all sorts of great stuff for the Bow Wow buddy in your life. Go shopping!

Tanner...A Latte Please. Make it Iced.

Sometime This Week, Tanner!
It's Hot Out Here
You just can't get good help these days. My Twitter account is hopping with invites from the ladies and mom says I'm not allowed to play on Twitter. She has given me a list of things to do and has me wearing a tie, for goodness sakes. I like the bandana idea better, but she says that's for casual wear, not "Office Casual". Isn't this supposed to be "Casual Friday?" It's too much for me to digest. Maybe that latte will help, if it ever arrives. Tanner!

You'll find my Weekly preview on All Things Dog Blog on Sunday, I think. It's impeccably written, if I do say so myself. Keep in mind, though, I don't have opposable thumbs, so my typing may be a bit creative. Hope you and your dog had a great "Take Your Dog to Work Day." I loved my Twitter time with the ladies, even if mom did scold me for it. **Snicker**

More Scary Gator Stuff?

More Gators? Run!
I'm not terribly thrilled with all this gator stuff going on. Mom is scaring me with all the talk about gators and dogs getting hurt. Today she has written the last (she promised) post about gator safety over at All Things Dog Blog. It's all about nesting season and the dangers of gator mamas that are watching their little ones. Yikes! I'm going to hid behind this toy and stay put. Wait; this toy is a gator. Run!

    Love the Pup on the Hat!
    Imagine our surprise when we opened the package and found a horse Tshirt inside!!! The hat has an adorable pup embroidered on it. No, it doesn't look like Oliver OR Tanner, but it's cute.

    Turns out that Jolly Pets makes toys for Zoo animals and horses. Who knew? We read through the brochure and were shocked to find toys for Tigers and all sorts of zoo animals that need to have entertainment just like us pups. Learn something new every day.

    Well, we've delivered on our promise to post a photo of the hat and Tshirt here. You can read up on how to win them at this post.

    on Her Dog Day Off
    eh eh eh eh! I may not be the wicked witch of the West (or was it East?), but I got rid of those dogs for the day and hacked into their blog to show off myself for Wordless Wednesday. How cool is that?!

    Want to see a couple of other neato photos of me on my doggie days off? Check out mom's post at All Things Dog Blog, and feel free to leave comments about my incredible beauty. It is obvious, isn't it? I've far out-paced the dogs in looks. The facts speak for themselves.

    They're Toni's Sunglasses

    Why is everyone laughing at me? I borrowed them from Toni.  ???

    I wore these cool shades to the photo shoot for the All Things Dog Blog Treat Review Team. They all thought I looked totally cool. What's wrong?

    All Things Dog Blog's Weekly Preview

    Tanner Loves his  Birdhouse
    Oliver is napping after a particularly long photo session this morning. He's exhausted from trying to get the treat out of a new bone he's testing from the nice folks at Safe Made Pet. They make cool toys out of silicone that is guaranteed to be safe for kids and pets to play with. Now that's a new concept. We'll be reviewing them for you soon at All Things Dog Blog.

    This week you'll be entertained by a singing puppy, offered assistance for a fearful dog by one of our trainers, have a chance to enter a dog-themed handbag giveaway, get a new recipe for pup biscuits and find out who won the Hol-ee Roller giveaway. And that's just the highlights. There's much more, but I'm way too busy with my birdhouse toy to read the whole schedule.

    Hope you enjoy some surprises as we venture into more fun over at All Things Dog Blog.

    Doing Organix Dishes is Such Fun

    by Oliver
    (c) Carrie Boyko
    I Got Dish Duty Today. Yay!

    One of our favorite things to do is dishes. After chow time is over, Tanner washes out my dish and I wash out his. I guess I get the best deal here, huh?

    Some trainers would not advise allowing this. But our mom taught us about food aggression when we were just pups and we'll have none of that. We share nicely. And that's a good thing, because I'd probably lose everytime. Tanner outweighs me by 7 times. Now that would not be a fair fight!

    Back to business. Mom has announced the winners of the 12 bags of Organix dog food over at All Things Dog Blog. She still has the food hidden, so we have not been able to raid the bags :(  Did you win?

    That Was Great;  More Please?
