We were pleasantly surprised when we were nominated for “The Petties” this year. The Petties are awards given out each year by DogTime.competties-mobile-app for the best pet blogs in a variety of categories and we were nominated for Best Mobile Phone App!

That’s pretty cool in and of itself, but even better is that the winner of each category gets to make a donation to the 501-3C shelter or rescue of their choice. That’s a $1,000 donation and it could make a huge difference to the rescue organization we choose–we will announce our partner charity in the next few days. We’ve worked with several rescues over the years, so it’s tough to decide which one!

Why should we win? Well, since Jack is the inspiration behind our App, we thought we would have him make a list of the Top Ten reasons that SlimDoggy should win the Best Mobile Phone App, so here we go:

SlimDoggy App2#10. I’m a fit & healthy dog NOW thanks to the SlimDoggy App, but I used to be a unhealthy, overweight chowderhead!  I am really sexy now too.  At least that’s what all the girls say.

#9. The SD App has helped  momz & dadz increase their understanding of pet food and nutrition, so now I get better eats & treats all the time.  It will help you too!

#8. The SD App lets me look up new foods and check out their ingredients so I can see whether they are healthy before I buy them.  I never again have to eat crap like Yellow #3 or Ethoxyquin!

#7. The SD App lets me track my running and hiking activities so I know how many calories I burn each day.  The more I exercise, the more I can eat!  Hey, lets run a marathon.

#6. Knowing how many calories I burn lets me know how much I can eat, and to a Lab, eating is pretty important.

#5. Two more years! Two more years! Being fit & trim from using the App is going to let me live a longer and a more healthy life.  Studies show that lean dogs can live 2 years longer than overweight dogs.  Sign me up for 2 more years.

#4. You can use the App on any dog whether they are over or under weight or at a perfect weight. We used it for my adopted sister Maggie. She was too SKINNY and it helped her gain muscle weight, not fat! It was hard for me to imagine a skinny Lab by the way.

Jack looking for your vote.

Jack looking for your vote.

#3. If you don’t have an iPhone, that’s okay because we have a mini-widget on our website that lets you do almost all the same things.  No more excuses- everyone should download the app!

#2. Because I’m saying please and sitting up really nice – I mean, how can you say no to this face —>

#1. The Rescue can use the money to find forever homes for more guys like me!

Now that I’ve convinced you to vote for me, how do you do it? Easy-peasy. Just go to: and click on VOTE NOW. We are in the Best Mobile Pet App category. You can vote everyday from July 5 – 31st. In case you don’t know how voting works – the more you vote, the more chances we have to win!

And as added incentive, I, Jack promise if I win, I will dress up in a pink tutu and run down the street, past those two tough guy German Shepherds that bark at me everyday! Now, you wouldn’t want to miss that would you!
