Calling All Dog Parents

Calling all dog parents! Today a new, unscripted series called ‘The Pack‘ premieres on Amazon Prime Video. The series celebrates the unrivaled bond between dogs and their human companions. I’m excited to check it out since our family recently grew by eight paws this spring when we fostered (and then officially adopted) our first dog, Bonnie Belle, and her feline friend, Leo. I love being a dog mom and she’s quickly become a part of our family.

She’s traveled with us (on socially-distanced trips of course!)

She’s loved playing in the backyard with her human siblings.

And we enjoyed celebrating our first Halloween with her – matching bumble bee costumes and all!

It’s been a wonderful 7 months and we look forward to making lots more memories together. Mostly though, we just enjoy lounging around on the couch at home as we stream shows so we definetely will be watching The Pack together!

The Pack is hosted by Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn and her canine co-host Lucy. The series features twelve teams of dogs and their humans on an epic adventure across multiple continents as they compete to win hundreds of thousands of dollars for themselves and the charities that they support. To win, the teams will have to depend on their understanding of one another’s strengths and weaknesses and prove to have the strongest bond in the pack. In each locale, the human and dog duos will face fun and exciting challenges, designed with the help of a team of accredited veterinarians and certified dog experts that also accompany the group on their exciting journey, making sure it is a positive experience for everyone. 

To celebrate the Pack Amazon Prime series, Amazon Prime Video is hosting a 3-day event called Packed Weekend featuring deals and experiences for us and our pups to enjoy together. Amazon has some special deals, perks and promotions from dog-friendly brands and even put together an Amazon Pets holiday gift guide to help you pick out great gifts for your fur baby. They also have a map where you can put in your zip code to find local deals and free goodies near you this weekend! Some pet stores by me are giving free dog treats and discounts but other places -like restaurants, salons, and retail stores- are getting in on the action as well with things for dog parents and their human kids. 

Along with all these special offers, I love all that they have put together to encourage quality time with our dogs! I’m really looking forward to joining the Pack Walk Challenge with Bonnie Belle because she loves going on walks around our neigborhood to sniff everything out. This global, virtual dog walk benefits some incredible causes and, the best part is, you can participate from wherever you are located. Plus, eligible participants have the chance to win amazing prizes when they complete the Challenge and log 30 miles by December 19th! The prizes are great but I was really excited to see that one of the charities featured is one I personally support called Best Friends Animal Society. A while back I had the privilege of visiting their animal sanctuary in Utah and they are doing amazing work there (and throughout the country really).

Amazon Prime Video sent us a special box in the mail to start our Packed Weekend celebration off with a bang, er…make that a “woof!” Bonnie Belle loved sniffing the box (I’m guessing she knew it was a surprise for her!) The box had goodies we could use during playtime. Bonnie Belle really likes playing tug of war with her chew toy so that was a favorite item in the box! She also got a little tunnel to run through and I feel like her toddler human may enjoy that just as much as her!

How will you be celebrating The Packed Weekend? Share with me on social and let me know what you think of The Pack Amazon Prime Video series, too!
