I’m pleased as pie (what?) to announce the winner of our Super-Duper Fantabulous Grab-Bag Giveaway!

We had a ton of entries for the giveaway, and we’d like to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone who entered. Although our winner was picked by random drawing, April’s entry comment was: Some of this would make perfect gifts for people I know and the rest is perfect for my boys!! - which pretty much sums up the spirit of the giveaway. So congratulations, April – you’ll be hearing from us soon.

We’d also like to send our love and all kinds of thanks to the following sponsors of our giveaway. They all have super great stuff and are super nice and cool, so you should go check them out.

Sirius Republic….. Stella & Chewy’s….. Doggie Knits/Lucky Penny Handmade….. Lu & Coco….. Pukka/FSB Associates….. Bocce’s Bakery….. TropiClean….. Calming Collars….. Hug Me Up!….. Smiling Frog Pets….. Free Range Eco Naturals

The day is swiftly approaching us, folks, that most glorious of Hallmark holidays — Valentine’s Day. The great thing about being dog owners, though, is that we truly know what unconditional love is all about… even if “unconditional love,” at least in my house, has a lot to do with meeting a strict 8:30 dinner time and turning a blind eye when underwear, socks, and other valuable possessions are chewed to shreds.

In celebration of our most precious Valentines, Chef Michael’s is sponsoring the My Doggie Valentine contest. All you have to do to enter is upload a photo of your dog, and the grand prize is a 4-day vacation package for you and your dog* to New York City! The cool part? For every entry, Chef Michael’s is donating $10 to Adopt-A-Pet (up to $7,500).

Visit  the contest web site for more information and entry terms.


* for dogs up to 25 lbs. Sorry, Ming and Dot!

Well, after accepting a bunch of fantastic entries, narrowing it down to four worthy finalists, and watching the votes tally for 3 days, we finally have a winner of our Bad Hair Day/Dirty Dog Photo Contest!

First of all, I’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to Pet Head for sponsoring this fun contest (and extra special woofs to their rep, Ananda, for boldly accepting the tough job of choosing our finalists)!

And now, the winner.

This was a close one, folks, real close. The last time we had a race this close, the Supreme Court was called in and we were hearing about “hanging chads” for months. After nearly 950 votes cast, the difference between the top two dogs came down to a mere 6 votes. Wow.

So, without further ado, squeaking in there by a (dirty) nose, our winner is…



Fergus is definitely a worthy winner, in my opinion… after all, in that photo he’s both dirty and having a bad hair day. Yeesh.

Well, Ferg, you are now the proud winner of a Pet Head prize pack featuring Fears for Tears tearless shampoo, Feeling Flaky sensitive skin shampoo, and a Pet Head Primpin’ Comb. Congratulations!

And to our other contestants? Well, here at Phetched, we think everydog’s a winner… so Kitai, Kava, and Luke will each be receiving a phthalate-free, BPA-free Dogmeat squeaky toy from PetProjekt! Yay!

Thanks again, everyone! Enjoy your weekend.


OK, everybody, it’s time to vote on a winner of the Bad Hair Day/Dirty Dog Photo Contest, sponsored by Pet Head!

We had lots of great entries, and our Pet Head representative, Ananda, has narrowed the entries down to four finalists. It’s time for you, dear readers, to pick our winner!

Here’s what’s up for grabs, an awesome Pet Head prize pack:


And now (drumroll, please)… the finalists!


They are (clockwise from left) Kitai, Kava, Luke, and Fergus. Poor things, their worst hair days displayed for all the world to see.

See their full photos and vote for your choice by clicking the BLUE “Read the rest of this entry” link below.

Big thanks and big woofs to everyone who entered!

Voting closes at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, September 11th, and a winner will be announced Saturday, September 12th.

We’re super excited to launch the first ever phetched.com photo contest, sponsored by Pet Head grooming products!

Is your pup “coiffurely challenged”? Or maybe just gets a leeeetle dirty every now and then? Send us your photos! If your pup’s photo wins the Bad Hair Day/Dirty Dog Photo contest, you’ll win a prize pack from Pet Head worth over $45!


The prize pack includes a bottle of Feeling Flaky shampoo (a hydrating formula that contains yucca and chamomile extracts to soothe dry, patchy skin), a bottle of Fears for Tears shampoo (a hypoallergenic, tearless shampoo for sensitive pups), and the Pet Head Primpin’ Comb (a cool tool for taming your pooch’s scraggly mane). That’s a HUGE value, folks, and it could be yours if you’ve got the winning photo.

Sounds awesome, right? Check out the details for contest entry below, and check out Pet Head’s line of awesome grooming products here.


Contest details:

1. Photos must be of a dog (or dogs), must be your property, and must be taken by you or a member of your household. Photos should fit the themes “Bad Hair Day” or “Dirty Dog.” It could be a photo of your dog in dire need of a styling job, in dire need of a B-A-T-H… or maybe your pup just looks like he’s stuck his paw in an electrical socket any given day.

2. Email your photos to phetchedblog(at)gmail.com. Please use your pup’s name as the title of your photo, and include your full name in the body of the email message.

3. All images must be at least 500 pixels wide.

OK, so that’s the rundown. Got a great photo? Bring ‘em on!

Ma Snax Superior Treats are handmade in Sonoma, California, with only good, wholesome stuff. They’re baked with the finest organic ingredients, with many varieties free of common allergens like wheat and corn. Ma Snax treats are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and nutritious botanicals, making them, at  least as far as your pup is concerned, both good and good for you. (My mom used to describe black-eyed peas that way to me as a child. Why are parents allowed to lie to their children? I’m pretty sure Ma Snax is telling the truth, though.)


Ma Snax offers a cool Monthly Treat Club membership program, where you and your pup will receive a different healthy variety of Ma Snax every month, or you can try their bake-at-home biscuit and cake kits for some fun in the kitchen with Fido.

You can order directly from Ma Snax’s web site or find them at select retailers across the country.


(Interested in Ma Snax’s Monthly Treat Club? Ma Snax is hosting a dog photo contest, and the winner receives a FREE four-month treat club membership! Awesome! Visit Ma Snax’s blog for more information on how to enter. Entry deadline is August 15th, with a winner announced the following week.)

UPDATE:  This contest is now closed, but please check back soon for more contests and giveaways! And congratulations to our winner, Dianne!

We featured Marc Tetro’s colorful and expressive dog art drawings here, and in celebration of phetched‘s official grand launch, we’re giving away one of his prints ABSOLUTELY FREE! An 11×14″ print of Marc Tetro’s “Four Dogs,” ready for framing and display in your home, can be yours just for visiting phetched!


All you have to do to is comment on THIS POST to be entered in a drawing to win the print. Please provide your name and email address so we can contact you if your name is drawn. (Your email address will NOT be displayed publicly.) If you own a dog, we’d love for you to tell us what kind of dog you have and what’s the last dog product, excluding food, that you purchased (i.e., a harness, a Kong, a straightjacket). Don’t own a dog? That’s OK… we accept everyone here at phetched, so you can go on ahead and enter, too.

While you’re here, please become a fan of phetched on Facebook. We’d really appreciate it.

Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. Friday, May 22nd. One entry per person, please. Yee-haw!
