Everyone knows dogs are man’s best friend and Beneful Baked Delights is giving every dog its day with Hug Your Dog Day, April 10.
It’s a hug-fest that begins at 9 am (EST) on Beneful’s Facebook page. Its purpose is to celebrate the love we share with our dogs, and it coincides with the launch of Beneful’s new dog snack line.
In the words of Toby Keith;
see every dog has it’s day dog, when the big dog throws him a bone
one moment in the sunshine when your ducks lined up in a row
lucky dog get a big ol’ bed, stray dog gets the porch
The first official hug will be from Eric Stonestreet, dog-lover and Emmy award-winning actor on the hit TV show, “Modern Family, and his 12-year-old rescue dog, Coleman Hawkins. Eric wants millions of more dog owners to join him by sharing their “dog hug” photos on April 10th.
“Coleman just brings out the hug in me,” said Stonestreet.
“We are best buddies and have so much fun together which is why we are excited to share the first hug to kick-off Beneful Baked Delights Hug Your Dog Day.
Of course, sometimes he plays hard to get, in which case I’ll have to bribe him with one of these tasty new dog snacks.”
The first 12,000 people to post a “hug” photo, Facebook status update or tweet (use hashtag: #hugyourdog) using the Beneful Hug Your Dog Day Facebook application on April 10 will be giving savings coupons for new Beneful® Baked Delights™ dog snacks.
An additional batch of 63,000 coupons will be made available once 25,000 cumulative ‘hugs’ from around the Web, including special location check-ins and tagged Instagram photos, has been met.
More information is available at Facebook.com/Beneful.
For a complete list of all the ways “hugs” will be tracked online, visit the Beneful Facebook page.
A Hug-o-Meter on the page will track the total number of “hugs” received throughout the day.
