Win a Date with Your Dog: Chicago's Mercury Canine Cruise tour GIVEAWAY!

We have found that one of our favorite ways to spend time with our pups is to play "Tourist in Our Own City". It can be so easy to overlook everything our city has to offer, so we have found some activities all of us can appreciate like exploring historical parks, taking art-filled walks, and having traditional holiday strolls.
It turns out that the #1 thing we always recommend to out-of-town visitors also comes in a dog-friendly version: The Mercury Canine Cruise.
This 90-minute boat tour highlights cruises down the Chicago river and part of Lake Michigan. We like hearing the stories about the buildings and history of Chicago. The pups like hanging their heads out the 'window' like it's a car.
There is one boat tour every Sunday morning from now through September 29th. We like that it is not overcrowded and there has always been enough space on board that we always get our own row or two. Miss M prefers getting the window seat while Mr. B is happy just sitting in E's lap.You can read more details about one of our past trips here.
We have been looking forward to going on another tour this summer, and the Mercury Canine Cruise contacted us and they would also like to generously give away Canine Cruise tickets to 2 lucky winners. Each of the winners will receive tickets for 2 humans and 2 pups. Winners will be able to choose the date of your cruise, though we would love to coordinate and meet up if it works out!
Why would you be interested on going on the Mercury Canine Cruise in Chicago with your pup?

1) Let us know by commenting on our blog post here
2) You can also enter by posting a photo on our Facebook page of your pooch and letting us know why you would be interested in going on the Canine Cruise together. (Remember, we always love seeing photos of your pooches!)
3) Winners will be chosen at random using a random number generator

Details:
-You have two chances to win by commenting once on the blog and posting a photo once on our Facebook page.
-We will use a random number generator to randomly choose 1 winner from blog comments and 1 winner from the Facebook page.
-You have until Sunday (July 21) at Midnight (EST) to post your comment or photo
-Check our Facebook page and blog the following week for the announcement of winners. If you are a winner, please contact us, so we can get your information.
-Winners must come to Chicago to attend the cruise

1) Callie: Ms. Callie and her new pup Gus would love to go hiking and be able to take a break eating Frosty Paws! 
2) Rachel: We'd have to tote puppy supplies with us for weekend treks through our new town - with stops at the bakery, park, and local shops! 
3) Kelly Ross and 3 Pups: We go on great dates every weekend with our 3 pups and would love a back pack:) 
4) Cary and Gracie: Gracie, our 10 year old avid hiking pooch loves Frosty Paws!!! Recently we took her on canyon hike and she decided to lay in the river since it gets pretty hot here. I think a Frosty Paw pack would have been the perfect cool down compliment for her and for future hikes! :)
Congratulations to the winners! Please make sure to message us using the 'Contact Us' button on our sidebar so we can ship you your prize!

PS. We only offer giveaways for products we would actually buy and use ourselves and that we think would be valuable for dog owners

I would love to win a trip on the Mercury Canine Cruise for our foster pup, Beau. He deserves it and could give him some more "exposure"!

Millie the yellow lab would love to go on the canine cruise! She's a cancer survivor and has not gotten to swim or ride in boats as often this year as she used to, so this would sure be a special treat for her!

We'll forgo entry in this one but I have to tell you that the photo of Mr. B on the seat/lap facing forward like he is listening to the tour made me so happy I sqeeee'd! Love these two and their adventures!

Jenny said...

Murray loves adventures and would be on cloud nine soaking in all the sights on the canine cruise!

Luna is an adventurer and would love to experience a boat cruise. It was already on our list of things to do this summer! Please enter us into this contest, this sounds like it would be a great time.

Mugsy continues to surprise us with his behavior in new situations. He conquered camping (he a spoiled city dog) so we would love to have him try boating.

Cooper and Lily love our daily dog-dates! And Chicago has been on our list of summer destinations this year. We would love to come join in on this adventure to see the sights and hang with our pups on the water.

Amy said...

Fantastic giveaway, guys! I'm sharing this over on my Facebook page - I know my Chicago fans would love it!

Liz Herron said...

Our Hercules and Lily would love to go on the cruise with mommy and daddy. See, their sister Aaliyah is afraid of riding in a car and she said she would love to hang out at grammies house and get spoiled and let these two enjoy what she calls a "scary" cruise :) but they love adventure!

I would LOVE to take my sweet Maizy on this cruise! We live in Chicago and she recently received a cancer diagnosis, which was then taken back, but is still a great concern. As a result, we're embarking on the "Summer of Maizy" where we do tons of fun, new things together and have a summer to remember (just in case)!

Hannah@Eriesistibull said...

So we could come to Chicago!!

Chris said...

I think my two pitties Maggie and Trike would love this. Both are fond of the lake, swimming, and anything water-based (that isn't a bath). Looks fantastic.

Steph S. said...

My dogs Nala and Mandy would love to go on a Canine Cruise! Seeing this beautiful city with their tongues hanging over the side of the boat!

REINA said...

Ted and Manny would love to go on the canine cruise. Both of these lovable guys are rescues- Ted the one-eyed wonder and Manny who is still a foster boy. Mercury Canine Cruise away!

Saki said...

Wow, that would be SO much fun! We love to road trip with our dog, Dot. A couple of weeks ago we took a trip down Route 66 and Dot had her very first horse and carriage ride in Pontiac, she loved it! This could be the next checkmark on her mode of transportation bucket list!
