Beryl is Giving Away Mr Chewy:)

Today is Beryl’s 6th birthday and she is giving away a present as well as having received some!  You will probably remember earlier in the year when many pet blogs were doing reviews on Mr Chewy products and services?

Here’s a link to one at Peggy’s Pet Place for anyone who doesn’t know what I’m referring to:)  They offered me the opportunity to give away a $25 credit at their business months ago and I was going to do it for my 2 year blogiversary in July, but I was probably busy stripping wallpaper that day and it didn’t happen!  Normally I wouldn’t give away something I can’t personally recommend, and as Mr Chewy only delivers in the US I obviously can’t vouch for their services.  But as I never saw a less than favourable review about them I’m quietly confident that whoever gets the $25 credit won’t be disappointed:)

What do you have to do for a chance to get the credit?  Just comment by Monday night and wish Beryl a Happy Birthday:)  Beryl is hopefully going to choose the winning commenter, as I’m going to write the names of all US residents who comment onto bits of paper, scatter them on the floor and the first one she decides to rip up will be the chosen one:)  If that turns out to be an exercise in futility I’ll put the names into one of the random chooser sites!  Winner to be announced on Wednesday the 12th.  Good luck everyone:)

Disclaimer Beryl and I receive nothing from Mr Chewy except the pleasure of giving something away, and that’s always a nice thing to be able to do:)

So what did Beryl get for her birthday?  Well, Frankie and I gave her a stunning new collar that I won on a Facebook auction to help the Spanish Galgos, who are treated horrifically by their hunter owners.  But this is a happy post so we won’t go down that path!

Isn’t it gorgeous?  Beryl thinks so:)

The other day she received a present from the UK!  It was from her sweetheart, Deccy, and she had a lot of fun opening it this morning:)

Oooo, it’s got my name on it
Awww, it’s from Deccy, my sweetheart:)
I’d better open it!
Before long and with very little mess Beryl found a lovely collar tassel, and a card made by Deccy:)
Thank you so much, Deccy, I love you too xxx

By this time I’d put Beryl’s new collar on her with her lovely tassel but they didn’t go quite right together.  Fear not, I knew Beryl had the perfect collar ….

Voila!

And no, Beryl, we are not going to start collecting tassels!  Or are we, time will tell:)  Big hugs and thank yous to Deccy, and his Mums for helping him to choose a perfect tassel and make Beryl’s special card xxx

Of course, I had to make Beryl a cake.  I couldn’t find the recipe for the Bacon and Cheese cake I made for Frankie’s birthday so I hunted the internet and settled on a Peanut Butter and Carrot cake, except I didn’t have any carrots so I grated in some cheese instead.  Then I decided I’d make muffins instead of a cake, don’t ask me why, I have no idea!

I have NEVER made muffins for people that look this good!
Beryl doesn’t counter surf
But she came very close! Should I have this one?
Or maybe that one?
Beryl’s brunch, but will she like them?
Mmm, smells so good. I made her wait, I’m a mean Mum!
I think she wants to eat all of it in one mouthful!
I can safely say the muffins meet with Beryl’s seal of approval!
Before long there were just crumbs left

What did Frankie think of Beryl’s muffins?  Well, he doesn’t like Peanut Butter so I wasn’t sure if he’d like the muffins.  I thought they tasted OK, lol, yes I had a taste.  It’s all human ingredients.

Frankie said he’d rather chow down on a pine cone, thanks all the same:)

You may have noticed Beryl’s ‘Princess’ bowl?  While that wasn’t a birthday present it was a present from Stanley’s family:)  They went to the UK to visit relatives in July and saw that bowl in a shop and just HAD to buy it and bring it back to New Zealand for Beryl:)  How cool is that?  You may also have noticed that Beryl eats her meals off a beer crate?  Well, she’s not a snob you know.  Even though she prefers champagne.  I do have intentions of prettying it up with some nice fabric and maybe some Swarovski crystals some day:)   Just kidding;)

Although she has been wandering around Pinterest and found this!

It’s time to take off the flash clobber and get into an everyday collar and go for a birthday walk … even though it has rained:(  Have a great weekend everyone, and don’t forget to say Happy Birthday to Beryl for a chance to win a $25 credit at Mr Chewy!

    Beryl’s new collar and collar tassel are absolutely smashing! I think that letting Beryl choose the winner by chewing up a piece of paper with a person’s name on it is far more interesting than using Randomizer. You should name a video of her “picking” the winner.

    Happy birthday Beryl! I’m getting hungry looking at your peanut butter cheese muffins. How clever is your mama. I’m sure The Typist would have snarfled the lot. And your princess bowl is divine! I am very jealous.

    Have a great weekend! Frankie too! HUGS, Georgia X

    Happiest of Birthdays, Miss Beryl! And we’d have wished you a happy birthday whether there was a prize available or not. We are REALLY liking that orange collar! Where did that come from? It would make an excellent Halloween collar, methinks! And a certain princess here has her eye on your bowl!

      I thought of Bunny as soon as I saw that bowl, I was sure she’d have one exactly the same!! The orange collar came from 2hounds. You’re right, it would make a good Halloween collar!

    Happy Birthday, Beryl! The collar tassels look so beautiful on you. I didn’t know about collar tassels and am kind of sad to discover them. I don’t need another reason to spend money on Freedom, Casper & Nikki. The muffins look great and it looks like you enjoyed your treat.

    Happy Birthday, Beryl! Okay, that’s my MrChewy entry. I’d love to win.
    This is my first visit to your blog; I came here when I saw that Carrie Noar from Tails and Tales had shared your post, and it went by in my FB ticker. Beryl is a beauty, and is obviously well loved. I smiled to myself and chuckled at the sequence of photos with her gazing at the muffins. ;-)
    Cheers, from the greymom of Charm and Snow.

    Happy Birthday to my ‘flirty’ girlfriend Beryl from Stanley. And glad you are using and enjoying the bowl my humans got you in UK – (they didn’t get me anything!) You look very pretty in your new glitzy collar and tassel and I wish I could’ve helped you eat your muffins.

    Great pics Sue, Frankie looked so funny with his pine cone, chomping away.

    Hope we have an end to this crapsky weather soon, it’s supposed to be spring here in the land of the long white cloud!!!

    Happy Birthday Beautiful Beryl. They collar is lovely. She has such a regal expression in one of her pictures. And I love the muffins they look good enough to eat. I made mine a meatloaf “cake” covered with mash potatoes for frosting and used frozen peas for the writing.

    Have not tried mr chewy here in Australia, we use a local supplier of frozen BARF for our dog Oskar and when we run out of that we just use an all natural baked kibble. I also know lots of our customers who own greyhounds and other dogs prefer the BARF too (or something close to it at least) so maybe one day we can see mr chewy here too :)
