Morton Salt Safe-T-Pet Prize Package Give Away & Happy Birthday Iggy Pup

Iggy Pup, our adopted girl, from Free Spirit Husky Rescue,
playing in the snowy yard with her big brother, Nakama, our 105lb Akita

Today 1/12/12 marks two momentous occasions in Chi-Town.   It's our first substantial snow of 2012 (of the whole winter, actually) and it's the 2nd birthday of our beloved husky mix rescue, Iggy Pup.   I wanna be your dog, indeed!   She's got the punk attitude that would make Iggy Pop proud.   Her full name is Igraine the Brave, from Cornelia Funke's excellent book.   The kids named her for one of our favorite authors and one of our favorite smart, scrappy, mighty heroines.   Igraine does live up to and embody both her name and nickname.

In honor of both the blizzard and the birthday, we have a prezzy for YOU.   Chemical ice melters hurt pets and people, and traditional rock salt can burn tender paws.   Make it a kinder, gentler winter for your pets and keep everyone a little safer.   So....

ChiIL Mama's Giving Away A Morton's Safe-T-Pet Prize Pack Containing:

-Safe-T-Pet mini jug

-Ice scraper

-Fleece blankets

-Retractable leash

-Dog paw-shaped USB

-Paper hang tag

Morton® Safe-T-Pet™ Ice Melt
"Your pet will love you even more."

Morton® Safe-T-Pet™ Ice Melt was developed with veterinarians to be safer for your furry friends. It's completely salt and chloride free - so it won't irritate pets' paws or stomachs. Morton® Safe-T-PetT Ice Melt is also non-toxic, and it won't irritate skin, so it's better for people and plants, as well as paved surfaces.
Pet and people friendly: Veterinarian approved, chloride-free, non-toxic
Safer for environment: Better for plants and concrete than regular salt 

Easy to see: Colored pellets provide clear visibility 

Melts below 15º F

The Morton's Safe-T-Pet contains a chloride-free organic compound called Urea, making it a non-toxic, non-irritating alternative to salt based ice melters. The product is also less corrosive to metals and concrete.  Other deicers form a chloride containing liquid brine, that's rough on pets' paws and stomachs if eaten.

Make a difference:
