“CHAMP”ions for a good cause


Thanks to Method for sponsoring today’s discussion.



Christmas 2012 152

My name is Champ.


I’m Traci’s dog, and I have decided to hijack her blog to tell you about a really good cause.


I lay beside my mom almost every night while she is blogging, so I totally know all about this blogging

stuff.  You just put a lot of pictures with some words in the post, and you are done!


So here is my first picture.  This is when I was just a baby and Mom, Dad, and my brothers had

just gotten me.



Aren’t I cute?!  I mean, seriously?


What?  You want a close up?  Okay, here it is…



Man!  I was adorable!  No wonder my family loved me so much!


But now, I am all grown up.


You may have noticed me in one of the pictures in Mom’s “Summer Home Tour” post.  From what I

heard, this picture of me on the bed was everyone’s favorite.  I’m thinking it may go viral.




Doesn’t surprise me a bit.


So I figured since y’all love me so much, maybe I could share some information with you about how we

can all be “CHAMP”ions for a good cause. 


{Get it?  My name is Champ.}  woof!


There is a company I love call Method.



They never test their products on animals or use animal by-products ever!   AND they make non-toxic

products that are safe for cleaning up after and around pets.


And since I’m an animal…I think this is awesome!


Mom got some bottles of Method hand soap to try out, and MAN, did they smell good!  She had a big

smile on her face while she was using them.

She said that she hopes the soaps will help my brothers smell better too!


So, do you want to know how you “CHAMP”ion for a good cause?  Well, you can support cruelty-free

products by purchasing a bottle of Method’s limited edition “Design for Good” soap!

Well, it was great talking to y’all. I’m better get off here before my mom gets back home.  Maybe I’ll

hijack her blog again soon! 


I’m so glad I have a family that loves me so much! 


Do you have a pet that you love as much as my family loves me?


If so, tell me about him or her in the comments.  I’ll read them the next time Mom leaves the house.





  1. Cutest post ever!!! Almost cutest puppy ever except for our little “Ginger”. Ginger has 2 brothers Snowball our cat and Thumper our rabbit. I’m going bto try to find a picture of all 3 and post it on the Method’s facebook page. :D

  2. LOVE this post from Champ! Adorably cute and super smart too! So Champ, my pack would like to give you a high five for supporting such an awesome Cause! I hope you like kitties, because in my pack there are two (they ‘think’ they are dogs haha!) and two big dogs too! They admire you for your smarts and hard work!

    Thanks for sharing!

    With Love from
    Zisso, Nadia, Keekers and Pepe

    and their Mom, Bev, too!

  3. SOO cute dog!! My nine year old was beaming the whole time I read aloud your blog and showed the adorable photos : ) I can’t wait to try some Method hand soap!

  4. You Are Adorable Champ! Would love for you to write more! But not to many cause I love Tracy too!
    And I really like Method, have been using it for a while now.
    When I started using them I wished someone I knew had used them–you know new product fear. And they have so many to chose from too. Thought maybe you would like to know which ones are My favorites so far: #1 Sweet water- hand soap, a must have-
    #2 Spearmint- antibacterial Bathroom Cleaner, I keep this handy-use it every day after the morning rush, squirt on rinse off sparkle sparkle.
    Pink Grapefruit all purpose cleaner, Cucumber all purpose cleaner are 2 others to brag about. Use them for whole house clean up regularly.
    Champ, tell your Mom to keep up the great work and to have a good time on her upcoming trip.

  5. Champ is adorable! Is he a Schichon? Looks a lot like my Maisy, and she’s a Shiz-tsu Bichon mix, or a “Teddy Bear”. Tell Champ I will use more Method products just because he’s so darn cute!

  6. Love Method products! I started using the laundry detergent this spring. First detergent with a fragrance that doesn’t affect my allergies. Also love love love the Method bathroom and kitchen cleaners. The fragrance is great and doesn’t cause me to have headaches the way most cleaners do. I’ll try to pick up some of the special edition hand soap next trip to the store. Just recently bought a bottle of the sweet water hand soap and it’s really nice. Great company to promote, Traci! If only we had a pet to post for the contest…

  7. is Champ going to be a stowaway on your trip ? How long will you be gone? I completely forgot that info

  8. Champ is a cutie, but I was surprised to see how much of the brown in his head area he no longer has from when he was a pup. I have a Maltipoo and I think I kiss him more than my hubby. Sorry honey. He’s just so dang adorable, I can’t help myself! I have never heard of these products, so thank you for the intro! I will have to look into them. I think that’s a wonderful trip you have coming up. Safe travels and many blessings!
