Our latest giveaway, sponsored by Sleepypod®, was a smashing success. A record number of pet parents entered to win their very own mobile pet bed. I can’t thank Sleepypod enough for offering their award-winning carrier to one of our readers.
Now it is time to congratulate the lucky Sleepypod mobile pet bed giveaway winner and his pet mom.
Meet the winner
Lisa S. and little Snickers will receive their very own Sleepypod mobile pet bed.
Lisa wrote to give us some background about her rescued 4lb. poodle. She adopted Snickers from a woman who breeds AKC White Poodles. The woman originally gave Snickers to some family members to be their pet. Somehow, he experienced a traumatic fall and landed on his head. It left Snickers with chronic seizures and unable to stand or roll from one side to the other. The little dog is constant pain as well.
Lisa was told the family did not seek medical attention for the dog’s injuries, but instead chose to treat him on their own.
When the woman came to check on Snickers and saw the condition of his health she immediately removed him from the home.
That’s when Snickers came into Lisa’s life. She decided to treat his disabilities with holistic veterinary medicine. Lisa said she completely changed her dog’s diet and added a potent antioxidant to help with his seizures and pain. In addition, she does daily TTouch massage to stimulate the weak muscles in Snickers’ body and legs.
It has been 3 years since Lisa adopted Snickers and while his health has improved, it is a challenge for him to ride in the car. Lisa wraps him in a sling to keep his body as pain free as possible, but the shoulder strap blocks his face. She is looking forward to Snickers traveling in comfort in the mobile pet bed and being able to see through the dome cover.
