#FuelTheLove with Zuke's

Today I am participating in the #FuelTheLove blog hop with Zuke's, some of my all-time favorite treats.  If you remember, a few months back I reviewed and gave away Zuke's Lil' Links; I also reviewed their Super treats.  They were all delicious!   


So, when I was asked to participate in #FuelTheLove, I couldn't say no.  I chose to try Zuke's Z-Filets...because many of the comments you all left on my last Zuke's post was about how yummy the Z-Filets were...and you were right!  I love them!

I decided the best way for me to #FuelTheLove for Zuke's was to write a poem.  Now, be sure to read the whole poem because towards the end, there is something special in it for you!

It came with a rap on my door,
A stranger that I've seen before:
FedEx, who bore a box of brown,
I zoomied when he set it down.
Zuke's!


My happy face; eyes a-twinkle
Such delight (I almost tinkled);
And with Ma's squiggle, it was mine,
I snatched it and began to whine
Zuke's!


Open it!  I refused to wait
For Ma; geeze can she irritate
When off for the camera she goes
As yummy scents waft to my nose,
Zuke's!


I count the bags, there's only three,
What crap is she pulling on me?
I could've received tons of swag
If not for my stingy old hag.
Zuke's!


I tasted two then hit a glitch
Oh, that chicken will make me itch.
What to do with that last flavor?
I know a dog who will savor
Zuke's!


Off to Bentley's house I scuttle,
His delight was less than subtle.
He begged, he jumped, for just one treat
No way one would make him replete
Zuke's!


And off we went, tore up the yard
Then back for more, we begged real hard
But no, time to play had ended
Those treats sure made our day splendid,
Zuke's!


So, do you think you want a few?
If so then I know what to do.
Enter the draw, all on your own
Winner gets treats sent to their home
Zuke's!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

One last item before you leave,
In this business you can believe,
Quality, wholesome, tasty snacks
And with each purchase, they give back
Zuke's!


Why I Choose to #FuelTheLove for Zuke's
Quality.  Zuke's makes dependable, wholesome treats that help support my health and happiness.

Made in the U.S.A.  Zuke's treats are made in Durango, Colorado from only the highest-quality ingredients.  Did you know Zuke's has never had a recall in their 18-year history?  *High Paws* Zuke's!

Pawesome.  These are healthy treats that contain no allergens!  No wheat, corn nor soy.  And...Zuke's treats are chock full of anti-oxidants that fight free radicals and boost my immune system.

Philanthropic.  Zuke’s commitment to supporting a pet’s active and healthy lifestyle extends beyond nutrition and treats with their involvement in the fight against canine and feline cancer. In 1997, Zuke’s helped found The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund, an independent non-profit dedicated to helping pets with cancer, and has since donated a portion of every purchase to the organization.

Now, did you enter the Rafflecopter giveaway so you could win Zuke's Z-Filets in all three flavors - Grilled Beef, Grilled Chicken and Grilled Vension?  Well, hurry up!

Also, I have a FUN way for you to help #FuelTheLove and #FuelTheCure for dog and cat cancer!  Just upload a photo of yourself (or your dog, if you are human) "in action" to either Twitter or Instagram and tag it with #FuelTheLove and @ZukesPets.  For each photo uploaded, Zuke's will donate $5 to The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund!

  4. Ring Ring Ring Hellooooo Oz The Great and Powerful ~ you sure knocked out one fine poem for Zuke's. It's like you shouted it from the rooftops! I love giveaways that is the only way I get treats. If I don't win stuff I get apples and carrots. I think Bentley can run your tail off. For a corkie he has fast legs and you can't get his tail ~ he has none.
    Thanks for being a friend

  7. That was an especially pawsome poem, Oz! You'd make a really great employee for an advertising company. We love Zukes Lil' Links, Jerky, Z-Filets and Z-Bones. None of those contain our human's allergens, and she's really happy with those being grain-free for us. We wish we'd get more rabbit from her, but she won't give any rabbit treats unless we're training.

  23. Hi Y'all!

    I'm suggestin' that my Human go get me some Zucks right now! I'll tell her she won't have to slave over the stove and hot oven makin' me treats. Warms the house in winter, but overheats it the rest of the year.

    Love that there is nothing allergy wise in them and that they are made here in the USA! Love the "fight cancer" connection too!
