Do you hug your dog(s)? If you do, you’re not alone!
Dog lovers across the country are invited to share the power of a furry hug by participating in the first-ever Beneful® Baked Delights™ Hug Your Dog Day. The virtual Hug Fest, which was created to celebrate the love we share with our dogs and the launch of the new dog snack line, is taking place on the Beneful Facebook fan page (Facebook.com/Beneful) beginning at 9:00 a.m. EST today.
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, are sharing the first official hug in a fun video featured on the Facebook page.
“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.”
There are a number of ways TAILS fans can participate in Beneful Baked Delights Hug Your Dog Day. One way is to upload a photo of you hugging your dog to the Beneful Facebook page. You can also tweet, post on Facebook or post an Instagram photo with a caption that includes the hashtag #hugyourdog.
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.
Beneful is also offering savings coupons for new Beneful® Baked Delights™ dog snacks for the first 12,000 people to post a “hug” photo, Facebook status update, or tweet using the Beneful Hug Your Dog Day Facebook application on April 10. 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.
