Here's the backstory: my wife and I are both graduate students (so we tend to not have a lot of money). If we want to go out of town at all (e.g. visiting family on holidays, or visiting friends from college who we moved away from in order to attend grad school) we need to get someone to watch our dog (which my wife has had for the past 11 years). As you might expect, this can really add up (the dog walker we use is about $20 a visit).
We've been using a dog walking service called Fetch! for about a year now. They're a company that operates franchises throughout the US and provides a variety of pet care options. They recently started a contest where the winner will win a year's worth of pet care. Obviously, winning this would save us a bit of money, and so I have taken to the internets to hopefully boost our chances.
The contest is titled the “Best Pet Ever,” and basically, whichever entrant receives the most votes will win. It's all based in Facebook, which means that you'll have to “Like” Fetch Pet Care, and allow their app access, so I can completely understand anybody not wanting to vote.
The contest ends at 11:59 pm EST on August 5, 2011. If you enter a vote for Rex, and post back here saying you did, if we wind up winning the contest, I'll gift a $9.99 game (or the equivalent if any sales are going on at the time) to a random poster (one entry per person).
We want to win win free dog walks for when we go out of town, and so we need people to vote for our entry on Facebook. If we win, I'll gift a $9.99 game (or equivalent in sale games) to a random person if you help us out and post back here that you did.
The link to our entry is below, and another reminder that you need to "Like" Fetch Pet Care and allow the app before it lets you in to vote.
