Hey everybody! Have you been participating in the current K9 Kamp fitness challenge to get more active with your fur kids? We have…but we haven’t been very social Kampers this time around I’m afraid. Daisy and I have been spending an extra 30 minutes walking and playing together as many times a week as possible, but the real “challenge” for this event has been finding the extra time to snap some new photos and write about what we’ve been up to!

If you’ve been in the same boat and haven’t had time to report in to Kamp headquarters on a regular basis, it’s not too late! Just head on over and get caught up and record your participation with some blog comments and Rafflecopter Contest entries for chances to WIN some paw-tastic prizes including:

  • An EzyDog Vario6 Leash & Fold-a-Bowl

  • A copy of  Dieting With My Dog  & The Dieting with my Dog Guide to Weight Loss and Maintenance
  • A bag each of Kol’s Veggie Snacks & Green Bean Crunchers

Are you and your dog participating in K9 Kamp Fitness Challenge? We sure hope you’re having better weather than Daisy and I are here…it’s been terrible and we already had our first Tropical Storm of the 2013 hurricane season!


We won’t bore you with all the details, which mainly involve me doing my Hip Hop Abs DVD in the living room while Daisy laughed at me, but I did want to make sure to share this cool free phone app I discovered recently called Charity Miles.

charity miles app

You can use it to earn free donations for your favorite charity when you walk, run or bike! Choose from ASPCA, Habitat for Humanity, The Nature Conservancy and loads more worthwhile causes and not only does this app track your miles but it also makes a donation on your behalf. It’s as easy as this: get moving. Bikers earn 10¢ a mile and walkers and runners earn 25¢ a mile!

Charity Miles is a free app available for both Apple and Android devices.  Visit their website or check out this video to learn more:

Imagine how much money we could raise for charity if all the K9 Kampers use this cool app! Be sure to leave us a comment letting us know how you’re doing with this month’s fitness challenge. Then head on over to K9 Kamp HQ and enter to win some paw-tastic prizes for participating!

K9 Kamp

Daisy and I are super excited to be warming up to join Koly & Kelly and their moms at K9 Kamp 2012 – a fun and interactive fitness challenge that encourages everyone to get out and get active with your dogs. Not only are we participating in this fabulous event, but I’ll also be one of the featured bloggers – sharing our experiences and updating you on our progress throughout the 4-week series of fitness challenges!

We decided to join K9 Kamp for several reasons…the most important being FUN! When we aren’t hard at work testing new products and finding the best pet deals for you, Daisy and I enjoy a good laugh and as much playtime as possible and this sounded like LOTS of fun when we heard about it! And, although we enjoy walking and spending time outdoors, we aren’t always so good about sticking to a fitness routine and Mama isn’t exactly what you’d call the ‘athletic type’ .  We’re looking forward to trying some new activities and incorporating a little more ‘exercise’ into our routine. I’m not naming names but one of us here could stand to lose a few pounds (Daisy says it’s Mama)! I also think K9 Kamp sounds like a GREAT chance to get to know other pawsome pet bloggers and give you the chance to get to know us better, too!

ready for K9 Kamp

We really hope that you will join us along the way! It’s free and easy to participate – you can do a little or a lot, and blog about it or post comments on our blog if you don’t have one of your own. We’d love to hear from you and it will help encourage us to do our best, too! Just look for the fitness challenge posted every Friday and complete it (or at least give it a try) on your own as your schedule permits! You can also Keep Up with the hashtag #K9Kamp on Twitter for the latest news and updates!

Each challenge can be tailored to any fitness level, which is a GOOD THING since Mama’s knees just ain’t what they used to be! And did I mention there will be prizes?!? Be sure to check in at K9 Kamp Headquarters where a new challenge begins each Friday thru June 18th. The first one starts tomorrow May 18th so Daisy and I will see you bright and early at Kamp!
