Win A Sleep Number True Silver Comforter, Valued Up To $199!

October 1st 2011 8:56 am

My sleep number is 7.

At my age, soft and cushy gets the job done.

Truth be told I don’t really have a sleep number, just a hand me down bed I let my parents share with me. There’s no telling the amount of dead skin cells, human hair and microscopic critters I’m forced to lay on every night.

So imagine how excited I was when I was contacted by a representative of Sleep Number® to see if I’d be interested in reviewing their True Silver Blanket.

For those not in the know, this is a blanket that is said to provide natural allergy defense due to its silver fibers, offering superior protection against dust mites and pet dander.

I don’t know why anyone would complain about pet fur but since I’m all about comfort I thought I’d give it a try. Besides, our household, with a slew of dogs and one cat is the perfect laboratory to see if this blanket can really stand up to its claims.

First, let me tell you a bit about the Sleep Number True Silver Blanket:

Pure silver fibers are woven into the blanket, which offer anti-microbial, anti-odor and anti-static benefits (that’s three check marks against the fur and allergies.)
The True Silver fiber is also part of the fill and has a natural allergy protection which will never wash or wear out which means the blanket can take the abuse and still stand the test of time.
It also has a 300-thread-count cotton sateen cover (can you saysoftness!), and quilted stitching so the fill inside stays where it’s meant to be.

The blanket comes in three colors, we chose eggshell, a nice creamy off white.It also comes in beige and light blue and is neutral enough to fit in with any décor. No word on the release date of a blanket in my favorite color, diahhrea delight, but I digress.

The blanket is very soft against my fur and also extremely lightweight which is great since I’m not fond of heavy covers. Although lightweight it does a good job keeping you warm when it’s cool and cool when it’s warm. It’s magic, I tell you.

My bro and sis, two adopted Bernese Mountain dogs, are in shedding season so there is a lot of fur on our blanket. The great thing is that the fur comes off easily. So easy, in fact, the old man said he’s probably going to do his next furminator session on it.

Anyway, my mother being a neat freak, has already washed the blanket and because it’s so lightweight, took no time to dry and came out looking just like new.

Since we’ve only had the blanket a week I haven’t really had time to assess the natural allergy defense but I can confidently state this blanket is very comfortable against these old bones. Very comfortable! I know all my siblings like snuggling on it too. Just look at the picture to see. If you’re wondering, I’m the one behind the camera taking the picture.

Based on my experience with this blanket, I have to give it four paws up. I’d give it five but I’m not a freaky dog with five legs.

The best part is that one lucky winner has the chance to win their very own True Silver Blanket, a value worth up to $199!

To enter the contest just go to True Silver Blanket Contest, to find all the details and entry form.

Now, I just need to work on the parents to get me a Sleep Number bed!

My Book Reviewed In Publishers Weekly

I just found out my book, BAD TO THE BONE: Memoir Of A Rebel Doggie Blogger, was reviewed on Publishers Weekly. I was wagging with excitement when I got the email. Woof!

Bad to the Bone: Memior of a Rebel Doggie Blogger by Bo Hoefinger

Read by Loretta

A funny, funny book giving the reader a hilarious insight into what might be in a dog's mind as he is given orders by his owners. Throughout the book, Bo continually displays his intellectual superiority when he is listening to his "Mother" and "Father" as he refers to them. His innocent explanations about how he constantly outfoxes them will have you giggling. Hilarious from beginning to end. This book will leave you chuckling to yourself and marveling at the cleverness of the author and Bo.

 

Bo Needs Help...Please Help Bo

This is Bo's mom..I don't normally ask for help, usually Bo does the begging. But Bo and I do need help getting the word out about his book. He was supposed to be in the front of bookstores but it didn't happen, so we need to get the word out. If we sell enough books they'll put us upfront where Bo belongs. Bo has worked the last 3 years typing his paws off to make this happen, please help him.

BO’S SHAMELESS PLUG….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meAuql2Gps0

Let’ s get this clear right away: I’m a dog.

I’m 1′10″ and weigh 63 lbs, and although I’m a mutt on the outside, I’m a purebred on the inside. My good nature comes from the Golden Retriever side of the family, while my stubbornness is clearly from my Chowchow bloodlines. I’ve got Rastafarian ears, a black tongue for licking, and paws that should be on a dog twice my size.

I type 60 words a minute.

My name is Bo, and this is my story.

From shelter dog reject to beloved pet and popular doggie blogger, Bo Hoefinger’s life has been anything but ordinary.
Join this incorrigible canine as he welcomes us into his life, complete with his wacky “parents,” a constipated feline housemate, and chipmunk warfare. Bad to the Bone is an unforgettable, laugh-out-loud tale of love and loyalty that reveals the true heart of a modern American family.

A frequent contributor to local fence post 12, Bo continues his nonprofit work with the Beneath the Fence Society. In his spare time he dabbles in knocking over garbage pails, barking uncontrollably, and generally being a helpful force around the house.

He lives in Atlanta.

Grab a copy of BAD TO THE BONE for yourself and then a few for your dog loving friends. Can you think of a better gift for a dog lover than a book written by a dog? The holidays will be here before you know it and Bo thinks every dog in America, and beyond, should wake up x-mas morning to find a copy of his book in their stocking. It also works well as a gift for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, Bo doesn’t discriminate against any breed or holiday.

Bo’s book is now available, you can order online at http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Bone-Memoir-Doggie-Blogger/dp/0806 531290/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1

 

Book Update: BAD TO THE BONE

For those pup pals that have been following along my writing adventure, the trials and tribulations of being a canine author, I have an update.

My book, BAD TO THE BONE, is now available on Amazon.com (and bookstores around the world) for pre-order. It looks like the actual in-store date will be around October 1st. Just in time for all the doggies out there to get a copy in their x-mas stockings.

Thanks again to all my friends for their love and support throughout my journey. After almost three years it's hard to believe in a few short months my book will be nationally published. It isn't easy breaking into the literary world when you're a dog, but thanks to all the great Dogsters who want a book through a dog's eyes it happened.

Woof!

Hi Pups...It's been a while since I've done any diary updates, but I do have something fun to share, a new book title. Sorry I've been away but between dad working on Dogster's 'For The Love Of Dog' blog, and helping me edit my book, working on my blog, and a full-time job it's been a little crazy around here.

The title of my book was changed to....drumroll..."BAD TO THE BONE: Memoirs Of A Rebel Doggie Blogger."

I'm not really a rebel, I just like my own way. Share my crazy family adventures come this October ('09) when the book will be nationally released.

Thanks again to my pup pals who continue to show me love and support on this project. Woof!

I just wanted to let all my pup pals be the first to know that my dad has been chosen as Dogster's new blogger. Starting next Wednesday he will be keeping you updated on all things dog. Hopefully, they'll let me do a product review every now and then. He wants to make the blog a place where all pups will want to stop in once a day and see what's going on. As well as getting input from all the doggies out there about stories posted or things they might like to see on the blog. Woof!

 

Just Say No

Bo (woof) In Commentary:

Drugs. I don’t clearly remember how I’ve become addicted to them. It may have been my parents pushing them on me or maybe it was me demanding them. It’s all so hazy now. All I know is that I ‘need’ to have each and every one of my pills to keep me going every day. That’s why this story on an owner pilfering his dog’s drugs is so upsetting.

(DES MOINES, Iowa - A Des Moines man who was arrested for driving while intoxicated apparently took his dog’s pills by mistake.

Authorities say that Clarence Fenton had phenobarbital in his system when he crashed his sport utility vehicle into a utility pole last November. It took several months for the results of the blood tests that showed the drug in Fenton’s system.

Police say they found a bottle of pills prescribed for “Saturn” at the scene. They say Fenton admitted taking pills and that “Saturn” is his dog.

Phenobarbital is a drug used to control seizures in people and pets.)

It is not a drug to be taken if your owner’s primary goal is to avoid utility poles. It says so in the fine print, under side effects, right after ‘Taking this drug may result in weight gain, anorexia, uncontrollable gas attacks and/or crapping yourself in public’.

( Fenton appeared in court on Thursday.

He says he didn’t remember taking the pills but did take a newly prescribed antidepressant the day of the crash.)

Asked by the judge if he plead guilty or not guilty, Fenton calmly said, “Woof!”

( Officials with the Iowa Statewide Poison Control Center say people taking their pet’s medicine by mistake is more common that one might think. They say the center has taken about three similar calls this year.)

Maybe I’ll ask my vet for the human tamper proof prescription bottles on my next visit.
