Miss America may boast beauty and pageant prowess, and you rarely find a dog in that group, but the canine competition for The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show proves beauty and the breed rules supreme. For the 136th time, furry  folks will flock to New York City for the contest, which you can catch on television, too:

Monday, February 13, 2012
Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding Groups
7-8 p.m. USA Network
8-10 p.m. CNBC

Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Sporting, Working and Terrier Groups, Best In Show
8-10 p.m. USA Network

To celebrate the 2012 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, DooGooders™ wants you to grab a monocle, jog around the living room with your primped pooch and predict the Best In Show winner. Post the pup you think will triumph before the Best In Show begins Tuesday on our Facebook page, and if you get it right, you win a $20 DooGooders gift certificate. We’ll also donate a dollar to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society for each person that posts their pick. If no one selects the show’s final star, we’ll draw for a winner from those who participated.

And a couple fun furry facts about the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show:

  • First held in 1877, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is America’s second-longest continuously held sporting event, behind only the Kentucky Derby.
  • Westminster pre-dates the invention of the light bulb and the automobile, the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Washington Monument, the invention of basketball and the establishment of the World Series.
  • The first telecast of Westminster was in 1948, three years before “I Love Lucy” premiered.  
  • There have been a total of 299,024 dogs entered in Westminster’s 134 shows through 2010.

We got to join a lot of our DooGooders friends the last few weeks in a great giveaway for our pal Emily Eggebraaten Photography’s Second Birthday Bash! They announced the winner of some amazing goodies (including a DooGooders gift card). The winner is…

Happy birthday to our pals at Emily Eggebraaten Photography! This month they’ll celebrate their second business birthday (the DooCrew thinks of it as their 14th, since we like to count in dog years!). We love Emily’s puppy portraits, but she also does families, babies, seniors and weddings! Emily will give away from great prizes from our other friends including Shake Rattle Sew, hello., Puppy Love Bakery, South Dakota Babies and more! Click here to see how you can enter (and wish them a happy birthday!).

Baskets, bunnies and Easter candy make this time of year fun, but it can also be dangerous for your dog. Some sweet treats can pose a health problem, especially those with chocolate. Vets see more cases of food poisoning in pups around Easter and Christmas because of they may easily be able to get to candy. Some of those snacks can cause more than a sweet tooth, they can be deadly for dogs. Chocolate can kill a puppy because of theobromine, a natural stimulant found in cocoa beans, which can harm their heart or nervous system. Grapes, raisins and macadamia nuts can also be toxic to our four-legged friends. If your puppy does get into some human candy, this chart can help you know what to do.

You can also distract your dog with their own Easter basket and make it a special day for your furbabies.  Puppy Love Bakery’s Puppy Easter Baskets include extra-large Puppy Love Bakery treats, a Pup Cake, a bandana and an extra surprise! Our treats are healthy, delicious and safe for your pup (and any bunnies who might find the basket!).

(Baskets cost $8 and can be ordered by calling 605-366-2515 or emailing mandy@sfpuppylovebakery.com by 11 a.m. Saturday, April 23, 2011.)

Congratulations to the Bergstresser family for winning the first of our two Lawn and Garden Show drawings for a gift certificate toward DooGooders service! The DooCrew’s top dogs helped us select the winner!

 

If you’re sick of the smell of salt on the sidewalk and bothered by those brown spots starting to show up in your once white yard, remember the odor of melting doo will be here soon!

That’s why it’s time to order your spring clean from DooGooders. This year, we’ll be providing one-time spring cleans to the first 150 for $44.99. Just go to DooGooders.com and click on the spring clean pre-order on the bottom left.

* Pre-payment secures your spot

* Cleanings begin as soon as the snow says it’s final good-bye (we expect that to be early to mid March). Why wait? The DooCrew wants to doo its best job and to guarantee that, we wait for the snow to say sayonara!

* This price is for residential families in Sioux Falls, Tea, Brandon and Harrisburg (does not apply for acreages, commercial properties or pet service providers). We do not charge extra based on the number of dogs or overages if it takes longer to clean your yard!

* You think your mess is more than we can doo? We hauled out a half dozen buckets from some spring cleans last year, scooped piles of poop from Great Danes with the flu and turned brown into green to put the spring back in the step of your two- and four-legged family members!

* The Sooper Pooper award is back! Watch for details on who will win this year’s golden turd trophy!

Sure, the DooCrew knows all about poo, but the last week shows us so do many of Sioux Falls’ city employees. To thank them for all their clean up work, we’ll give a free cleaning to any worker who’s helped doo the dirty task of cleaning up. Just e-mail scooper@doogooders.com.

And don’t forget our special Dog Days of Summer $14 pick-up for new customers!

Smells like it will be quite an August, Sioux Falls!

We’re getting ready for Spring at DooGooders!  We’re currently only doing pick-ups as needed, but as soon as that snow melts, we’ll be back for regular service.  Once again, we’ll be offering a Spring Clean package for just $34.99.  We don’t care how many dogs you have.  That low price is the same for everybody, unless you live on an acreage.  If you’d like to pre-pay for a Spring Clean we’ll give you $3 off.  (offer expires March 1, 2010)  Just e-mail scooper@doogooders.com to get on the waiting list.

You may have heard us on the radio talking about our rejected ads.  Well, we knew it was a long shot, but we had Pile the DooGooders Spokesdog write some new jingles to promote poo pick-up.  Turns out his doo diddys don’t make the grade.  We videotaped his late night jam session, and we’ll show you the rejected ads throughout the year.  Here’s the first of several.

We hope you enjoy Pile as much as we doo!  Here’s to melting snow, and maybe an early Spring!
