Ascending Butterfly's Mother's Day Buying Guide Editor's Pick sponsored by:

Yes readers you read correctly, this is a Mother's Day Buying Guide Pick! Some of us single gals who are not yet moms, forget that being a 'furbaby' mom is a full time job, one that deserves to be recognized too! I didn't want to leave my single ladies out of the Mother's Day Buying Guide! And I didn't want the guys out there to get bored.

Are you still walking your furbaby with one of those retractable leashes? (Think about how YOU would feel if someone you trusted constantly grabbed you by the neck to get your attention, NOT cool right? It's high time we stop yanking at our dogs, and take them on a walk we can BOTH enjoy!

I wish I had heard of today's giveaway sponsor when I was at my last job where I was close to a nearby dog park in Manhatan New York. I greatly enjoyed sitting there during my lunch break, but I did not like dodging the poop that careless owners neglected to 'scoop'. And no one wants to go back to work with poop on  the bottom of their shoes and then get it on the carpet, YUCK! When people follow their nose to your cubicle in disgust, you know you are in trouble!

In many large cities there are fines upwards of $250 for owners who don't 'scoop the poop' and I'm sure many of you can relate to the inconsiderate neighbor who allows their dog to use your yard or favorite rose bushes as their dog's toilet!

I am a dog lover, and I've always owned 'large breeds', Rottweilers, German Shepards, and of course we all know, the larger the dog, the larger the ..... well let's just say you definitely want to be prepared once a furbaby that big handles a 'nature call'

Thankfully I no longer have to worry about not being prepared, and I now have ONE official leash for my baby, and it's by Rascodog! I also have to say I have been enjoying my walks so much more with my choke free leash that has the bags built right in, genius! (OK, I secretly wish I invented it!)

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a community group page with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow A Blog Publicly Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!

We are excited to report that this giveaway is a's Editor's Pick! Thanks Prizey, and thanks for all the Ascending Butterfly readers for your enthusiastic response!
