in Contest, Fun Stuff, PetsitUSA News




We changed our blog theme recently and we’re in desperate need of a snazzy new header to liven it up a bit.

That’s where you come in!

We’d like for you to design a new header for the PetsitUSA blog! The header we like the best will live at the top of our blog AND the person who creates it will win some really cool pet stuff! (BUT, if you’re not all that handy with the graphics, don’t worry! We’ve got some other prizes to give away too, and all you have to do is enter. Keep reading and we’ll tell you how to enter.)

Here’s what we have for the person who designs the winning blog header:


Use your imagination and create a fun, colorful, pet-related header. We need it to be 950 pixels wide by 125 to 200 pixels high and it should include PetsitUSA in it somewhere. Other than that, it’s up to you. Let’s see what you can do!

Here’s our logo, along with some of our favorite images for you to use in your design.

Email your header to us at winstuff@petsitusa.com. Be sure to include an email address you check regularly as well as a phone number.

We will accept entries until June 15.

(You don’t need to create a blog header to enter!)

For those of you who don’t want to try your hand at making the header, we have two more prize packages for you. We’ll draw two random winners for these! Here’s what’s in each:

Sam is working hard as a therapy dog. We had make a weekly visit to a school for children with special needs and he has also worked in some other programs with children as well. I’ve taken my training to be a reading mentor and now he work in the Reading Fur Fun program. Sam embodies the American Spirit of giving back when you see a need. In just 14 months he went from be listed for adoption in the Petfinder classified to being a working therapy dog. We have been a member of your blog since the pet food recall and love entering the contests. Thanks again for all the great info and the fun contests.

Hi, everyone. I’m Bailey Jean Dog here in Vegas. My owners run a doggy daycare and boarding service from our home. I help them by entertaining our clients when they come to visit.
I would like to enter your contest, but I don’t have a “favorite” pet. I do, however, have a favorite human! That would be my daddy Doug!
Dad adopted me from a local pet rescue. I had been abused and neglected by my previous owner.
Dad was recovering from a stroke (he had it on his 40th birthday!). His best friend and caregiver Kassie thought it would be great to get him a dog.
Well, long story short…… dad and I were made for each other! I helped him with his recovery, and he helped me to learn how to trust again.

I’m not much of a graphic artist so I’m so happy you’re doing a random drawing too. My cat Inkster is the love of my life. I found him when I was walking home from the store 5 1/2 years ago. He was such a tiny thing wandering in the parking lot and I just had to bring him home with me. He is my first cat ever and I just love him to pieces.

we have a small mixed breed that my parents and me adopted from the shelter. he’s so funny looking like a lab with little short legs. we love him a lot.

My mom doesn’t have a computer so I’d like to enter for her. She has a cat named Franklin and they’re inseperable. Wherever mom goes, franklin follows her around like a little puppy dog.

Nice blog! I have four kitties and am a professional pet sitter in San Diego.

Great Site / Blog, I too wish I was graphic savvy, my brother-in-law is though so may drop him an email and see if he is interested in designing something up for you guys – my girls love Bully Sticks ;-) Plus you have some other great prices I would enjoy – yay!!!

I too have a therapy dog, Happy, a Maltese and I just LOVE doing things with her, we are in a read program called See Spot Read, it’s wonderful!!

Hi……I’m Miss Hannah & I want to enter this contest. Will I win anything to eat?


Kim June 3, 2009 at 9:11 am

Hi everyone! My new favorite animal of mine is my recently rescued OTTB (off-the-track Thoroughbred) with help from AC4H (Another Chance 4 Horses rescue group) and ABF (Alex Brown Forum) members. If I hadn’t taken her in, she would have been shipped to slaughter, and I just couldn’t stand the thought of that. Her name is Flying Fortress and she is beautiful!! So right now, she is my favorite! (Hi Therese!!) Oh, by the way, Flying Fortress’ barn name is Daisy! :-)

We adopted a kitten, who was just two months old, on Feb. 1, 2009. We wanted this kitten to keep, our mixed breed black lab company. They both
get along and play together. They are so cute together playing. Some people think that cats and dogs do not get along, but ours play together. It is best to orient the cat, when he is a very young kitten and also take the dog to the
Humane Society (or wherever you decide to adopt the cat) and introduce the dog to the cat to make sure they get along prior to adopting the new pet family member.



Mary K. June 3, 2009 at 10:04 am

Hi, pet-people! I have 3 house cats and they work here full-time. For room and board, free meals and entertainment, they work hard! Some of their chores are Stray-Cat patrol (window-duty), cleaning their plates, making litter deposits, keeping the chairs and bed warm, waking me at 6 AM, and making me laugh at least 5 times a day! In return I provide the basics and am required to participate in daily cat rituals like stairway soft-ball, hide-and-seek, and personalized song-singing (use your imagination here!) If you are cat folks, you know what I’m talking about! Anyway, thanks for the chance to win, and all the fun at Petsit USA! We love you!!

I am a petsitter in Houston, Texas and love what I do. Its all about taking care of the
dogs and cats as well as other pets. I have to rescue dogs that I just adore and I am
always trying to work with rescues to get these animal their forever home. Sophie and
Pongo are my best friends and give some much love and joy to my life. I dont know
what I would do without them. I am currently trying to find a foster for a dog that
I recently rescued from BARC(Houston City Pound) so if there are any Houston
animal lovers that read this please contact me @ karenzorn@yahoo.com. This
dog is about 40lbs, got lab and retriever in him and such a spunky personality, male,
also golden in color.

I have a Pet Sitting/Dog Walking business in Huntington Beach, CA. I was a teacher and really loved it even though teaching Kindergarten kids take a lot out of you. My daughter was killed by a drunk driver. I was such a mess that I couldn’t continue to teach. My son gave me a rescue dog, Brooklyn. He really is a rescue dog because he rescued me. Without Brooklyn to help me through that very dark time I really don’t know where I’d be. He licked my tears at 3AM and never left my side for almost a year. He knew that I was in pain. He saved me & brought me into the light. Now, I have so many dogs & cats to care for and love. It’s the perfect job. I know that all “my” dogs & cats feel my love because I feel theirs.
Thanks for letting me share my story.

Oh no, that’s teaching “takes” not “take” a lot out of you. Should have proof read. :-))

Love is……owning a pet, hug your pet today!!!

My favorite pet is my ferret Big P. He was a biter from a horrible big national rescue and turned into the ambassador of our ferret shelter. He’s a doll
