KLOUT Perks and Your Special Dog Prizes

   Are you familiar with the social media-ranking site Klout?  It is headquarters are in San Francisco, California and offers service worldwide.  Joe Fernandez and Binh Tran founded the website and mobile app in 2008.  Their slogan is “The standard of influence.”  It ranks its users according to online social media influence and gives you a “Klout Score.”  This score can range from 1 to 100.  It is determined by the size of your social media network and measures how other users interact with your content.  Currently, my Klout Score is 64.  The cool thing about Klout is that it rewards you with Klout Perks!  I have qualified for several and have chosen two of them.  I posted about my first one here.  My latest Perk is fantastic!
   We received a box full of wonderful products from one of our favorite companies,Hill’s Pets.  When I say our box was full, believe me.  Inside we found a 4-pound bag of Hill’s Science Diet Perfect Weight adult food, two cans of Chicken & Vegetables Perfect Weight, a 9 oz. bag of Hill’s baked Light Biscuits, a measuring cup, a red retractable leash, and a Ruff-N-Tuff No Tip No Slipstainless steel bowl.  That is what I consider a major Perk!
   If you aren’t already a member of Klout, I recommend that you join today.  Besides the awesome Perks you get great content to share.  After all, everyone loves to have some Klout on social media!

Bentley: “I love the great Hill’s products that Mom received.  Since she is the human and Klout is important to her, we let her write that portion of our review.  She wanted to share it with y’all and we like to keep her happy.  Now that she is through, it’s our turn!”
Pierre: “I noticed that she forgot to mention that the new leash is mine.  You got the one with the” I ♥ my Basset Hound” on it from ILeesh.  Fair is fair, right?  *ears back and tail wagging*
Bentley: “Sure, you can have the new leash.  I’m nothing if not generous!  *cheesy smile*  Having said that, I am hard-pressed to share some of the goodies that we won from our friend, Your Special Dog.  Mom entered a contest on their blog and won!  We now have some incredible treats from Taylor Rivera at For Tails Only ~ Wagging Tails Boutique.  Together they hosted a terrific giveaway.”
Pierre: “You’re right, Bentley.  Gramma opened the box and both of our tails were wagging.  She pulled out a box of Himalayan Yak Nuggets, some Grin Dental Health sticks, and a bag full of cookies.  I wasn’t too sure about the last thing she pulled out.  It was labeled “Crack.”  I’ve never seen crack before, but it didn’t look like it could be smoked or that it was illegal.”
Bentley: “Everything smelled so delicious.  I was drooling all over the floor.  The Crack isn’t the illegal kind, although I can see how it could become addicting!  I could embrace being a “Crackhead” with this tasty delight.  Bubba Rose makes this Crack in two flavors.  We have the cheesy bacon, but it comes in peanut butter, too.  There are two planks that can be broken into 50 small training treats each.”
Pierre: “Whew!  That’s a relief, because I’d have hated to turn my own Gramma into the D.E.A.  She doesn’t really look good in orange and she’d get some hard time for dealing in crack.  It is incredibly tasty though and I had a tough time even getting a piece with your big head snarfing it.  I loved the Himalayan Yak Nuggets, too.”
Bentley: “I can’t believe that you were actually going to turn my mom over to the cops!  Talk
"It's okay to say YES to this Crack!"
about ungrateful, sheesh!  I’m not surprised that you loved the yak, since you are always yakking yourself!”  *snickering*  I don’t have to tell you how much I love Grin Dental health sticks.  Fresh breath is a must with the ladies, as I keep telling you.  *blows into paw and smells*  Mine is always kissable.”
Pierre: “I don’t yak; it is simply voicing my opinion.  My personal opinion on the cookies is they are terrific.  It’s a huge bag, so there is plenty for both of us.  Share and share alike, I always…say.”
Bentley: “We sure do thank our friends at Your Special Dog and Taylor Rivera, Independent Handler with For Tails Only ~ Wagging Tails Boutique.  If you haven’t visited both of these cool dog lovers, stop by and tell them Bentley and Pierre sent you!”
