Let's be honest, we all have our vices. One of mine is blogging. As much as some folks out there would like me to, I just can't seem to quit!

Speaking of addictions, by now it should be apparent that Nigel is addicted to trouble. Here's a perfect example.

I'll do my best to get help for the boy, but in the meantime, let me help you to get your dogs addicted to something other than trouble. How does free food sound?

Addiction Foods sent us a great sampler pack a few weeks ago. A quick visit to their website turned up the following:  Addiction Holistic Food is unlike any other. Free from harmful additives and made in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and USA exclusively from Premium Proteins and Game Meats known for their nutritional and hypoallergenic properties, Addiction has amassed a cult following among discerning pet owners seeking the ultimate in Holistic Nutrition.

Sounds good. So how does it taste? We tried their LaPorchetta dry food and a couple of their canned selections. While there was not enough food to do a long term report, the dogs are happy to give two paws up as far as taste is concerned. They simply loved it. And lucky for me, for some reason they did not suffer from a case of the strange food vapors. Bonus.

Our prize for today's giveaway? A two pack of their raw dehydrated foods: Herbed Lamb and Potatoes, and New Zealand Forest Delicacies. These convenient four ounce packages actually make twelve ounces of food when water is added, and the ingredient list is superb - no grains, GMOs, byproducts or fillers. In other words, it's all good. So let's give your dog a chance to try them!

As always, please do not post answers in the comments field. Instead, please e-mail them to: lifewithdogs@ymail.com   After e-mailing your answers please drop a comment here letting me know you have done so. Randomizer.org will be used to pick one lucky winner from the entries received.

Ok, let's get started! Pop by the Addiction Foods website and answer the following question. Where are they located?

Easy enough. Now find your way to older adventures from Life With Dogs on the right hand side of your page. In September of this year, Nigel dropped by the white house to play politics and ended up stepping way out of line in a scene that felt oddly familiar. What did he say to Bo Obama that raised so many hackles?

I hope your dogs love these yummies as much as ours did, and that your travels bring you back Thursday  for another chance to bring home some dog goodies on us. Good luck!


  1. Good Job, Nigel! An artist in the making! You are very talented, although my I suggest adding cat-like whiskers and perhaps some side-burns?

    How cool that your humans are doing a contest! The food sounds very yummy! I know the answer to the contest question but my human won't let me play today. Grrrr. Maybe Thursday I will be able to play!


  2. I SOOOO love how Suka things!

    Oh Nigel, we always knew you were a type of artist.....

  4. This is not gonna go over well at all with the FOBS.
    Or yet, maybe it will because they are a pack of nut jobs themselves.

    Mom didn't have her crash helmet on so early this mornin'. When will she learn it is mandatory when readin' LWDs???
