March 8, 2013

What do you mean 
this post has nothing to do with me? 

This blog is not called
"Daily Dose of Whatever You Want To Talk About?"
now is it?

Timmy fell down the well?
You know that I won't fall for that trick!
Besides, he shouldn't have been
playing there anyway.
I think you're just trying to distract me
so I won't notice that you're not writing about me. 

So, to get to the point.
The tall guy wanted me to ask you something.
He gets emails that say if he does a review
of this or that on the blog,
that he will get a this or that to give away
to, let me see how they put it,
one of your many gracious, intelligent,
amazing readers. 

Normally, he just deletes the emails,
as he figures if you wanted a this or that,
you probably already had one.
But, he just wanted to see what you thought about it.

However, he says that if someone
wants to offer him an all-expense paid trip
to Japan to do a review of dog toys there,
or if they wanted to send him to Scotland
to check out Scottish dog collars,
he would review the HECK of it!
(He actually said "heck".  You can't make this stuff up!)

So, what do you think?
Do you want him to start
advertising stuff so that you could win something?
(He said if he wins a trip to Japan or Scotland,
he would make sure that he gets one to give away too!) 

(P.S.  He said to add that he doesn't mind
when bloggers do this on their blog.  He just got an email today and wanted to see what you think.)

(P.P.S.  To the Scotland/Japan people giving away trips:
He has my permission to go.
And remember,
he'd review the HECK out of it!)


  1. Our publicist has the same question. She'd love to go to Japan or Scotland, BTW...

  2. we've only been asked to review collars--and neither have offered to give a "free" one to give away. LOL... I'd say go for it if you wish.

  3. We Beaglebratz haf dun a few BUTT NEVER fur a trip tue anywhere. Haf you signed up az a member of BlogPaws Community- if u look at our blog, we haf a little green box under our header fur BlogPaws Community - click on that box an'u will b magically sent there. When u sign up fur that, if u r interested in reviewin'stuff then they will send companiez your way who wood like bloggerz tue review a product or whatever - we haf gotten several dif'rent TREATZ that way - yepperz, we git may[b like a BAG OF TREATZ or like Mr. Chewy or now it iz Chewy sent us an antler chew. We try the product, sumtimez there iza give-away invooved then we review it. BlogPawz duz kind of a pre-selection review of the company b-4 sendin'them tue u but YOU haf the final d-cizion. Our mom iz kinda picky - like since our blog iza pet blog - the company or product hazta b pet-related in sum way. Any treatz - MUST NOT b made in China an'so far no dogfood can contain weird stuff or corn, soy or wheat - we hazn't figured that one out cuz we will eat ANYTHING BUTT like we sed, she iz kinda picky. Anyway, that'z mainly our story 'boutz reviewz an'also - if the email sez sumthin'boutz your blog bein'so an'so an'your MANY readerz r so an'so - basically if u can tell or if what the email sez leevez u questionin'in your mind if they even red your blog - mom d-letes thoze kindz. Also we don't due every-1 that comez our way - it iz up tue u what or if u review a product - they r not all give-awayz unless u count what they give u.
    Hope this haz helped a leest a bit.

  4. We've done a few reviews and enjoy it very much. Seems like I turned one down because I wasn't interested in the product, but the others have been for business cards, Christmas cards, treats and most recently The Spoiled Rotten Box. I also enjoy reading reviews from other bloggers. I've been introduced to products I knew nothing about until a blog I enjoy reading reviews them. I think Jack would get a kick out of it.

  5. If it is a product you like then we say go for it!

    Your Pals,

  6. My mom never pay attention to those emails.
    Yes. If TG thinks it is a good product he must do it.
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  7. Dear Jack,

    I think the tall guy would be pretty good at knowing which e-mails and products are legit and which ones are scams.

    As for me, the only trip I would be interested in winning would be a trip to meet you in person - maybe the tall guy could have all your blog readers take turns to come and sit with you while he is in Scotland or Japan......when he returns from his trip, you will be spoiled rotten! (As it should be)! LOL

    Your friend,

  8. And we are heirs to Mohammad's fortune. Thats the email momma got. We would rather go to Japan or Scotland and review, review!
    Benny & Lily

  9. Well Jack and TG, I think this is a fine idea. Especially if you can get some fun stuff out of it. I would just be cautious of any controversial type items (such as medicines and things).
    So what we say is, "What the HECK!"

  10. I say go for it! I had a chance to review a collar but they sold shock collars too and so I declined. I guess if you think the product is legit and it doesn't sound like a scam - it'll be fun! Free stuff for you - fun and educational for your readers!

  11. matter what you say to TG...he does as he pleases. LIKE NOT WRITING ABOUT YOU ON YOUR BLOG!!! MOL
    So Mom rec'd a weird email in December. She replied to the email asking to learn more.
    Well they wanted to write something about pets of celebrities for mom to post. Mom would get to approve it. She would have to have a link to this online Media place and no telling what or where (maybe Japan or Scotland) that link would take folks...but once it was posted the would send Mom $75.00.
    Mom told them our blog was for our amusement and not for profit. So that is our two cents worth on the subject. This is totally different from trying something to review. There are all kinds of folks out there looking at blogs though
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  12. We like to get free stuff, so we review. Still waiting for the big overseas trip....a new car (for 2 Airedales and 2 humans) would be nice too!

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  13. I think its cool and you should go for it if you want.

    Loveys Sasha

  15. If it's good enough for Jack, It's good enough for me.
    PS. Mom loves a chance to win free stuff!

  16. Jack,

    Go for it, it's your blog so you make the rules
