SlimDoggy at The Petties?

Share Button

pettiesBeing new to this whole pet blogging thing this year, we hadn’t heard about The Petties,’s annual awards until a few weeks ago. And even then, we didn’t really give it much thought until this past week as we saw more and more of our blogging buddies talking about it, but we thought, we’re too new to this club – who would nominate us?

When we finally went to their site the other day to nominate a few of our friends, we saw that they added 2 new categories this year and both of them perfect fits for SlimDoggy Jack!

The first category added was:

Best Active Living Blogjack on balance4

A blog dedicated to living a healthy and active lifestyle, which includes adventures with your dog.

That category sounded just PERFECT for SlimDoggy to be nominated in. We are totally dedicated to a fit and healthy lifestyle for your pets. We write about diet, food ingredients, health, exercise & fitness & the importance of being mindful and diligent in fulfilling your dog’s needs to ensure they live a long and healthful life. It’s the whole reason that SlimDoggy exists! Just look at that fit SlimDoggy Jack.

The second category added was:

slimdoggy app_smBest Pet Mobile App

A non-paid, downloadable application offering the best of the pet world through a mobile device.

That sounded like an even BETTER category for SlimDoggy, until I read the ‘non-paid’ part. Right now, there is still a measly $2.99 charge for our APP, but we are working on several different licensing deals where you can get the App for free. And we’ve offered it for free on our Blog just by asking for it, so I think maybe we can still squeeze into that category – what do you think? It’s a great App that really helps you monitor your pets food intake, exercise levels and keep them at an optimal weight and fitness level. Our food database and food ranking system contains info on over 2,000 foods!

Since we found a couple of categories we think really suit us, we decided to ask for nominations from our friends. Please nominate us – it would be such an honor to be recognized. And like they say, we’re happy just to be nominated…we’d like to win of course, but just the nomination would be appreciated.


It’s real easy to do – just go to, sign-up and nominate away. You can nominate every day if you want to! And one of the best parts is you can nominate a shelter or rescue organization to be eligible for their grand prize of $10,000 grant from DogTime Media!
