DoggyRade Announces 2022 Hydration Writing Contest Winner

Her chosen animal welfare nonprofit receives a $1500 donation.




(PRESS RELEASE) SAINT JOSEPH, MO — Dehydration is a serious and common health emergency in many dogs. That’s why DoggyRade announces Carol Bryant, journalist and dog blogger at Fidose of Reality, is the national winner of the 2022 DoggyRade Dog Days of Summer Hydration Media Challenge. Her blog post Is my dog hydrated – how to tell is a must read for anyone who care about their dog’s health.

DoggyRade invited credentialed journalists and pet/lifestyle bloggers from across the country to write a story about ways to prevent and solve hydration issues. DoggyRade judges found Bryant’s story to be a standout. “Carol’s story explained the challenges and options to help dog hydration issues clearly and concisely. Best of all, it was done creatively through the use of multimedia and exceptional storytelling. She used her personal journey with her late dog Dexter, to provide a compelling narrative,” said Lori Head, marketing director of DoggyRade.

The resident of Forty Fort, Penn. will receive a $500 cash prize and DoggyRade product. She also is able to select an animal welfare organization to receive a $1500 donation. Bryant has chosen Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue of Flushing, N.Y. as her beneficiary. The New York City rescue group will not only receive a cash donation, but DoggyRade product as well.

“We’re thrilled to be the recipient of this generous donation and thank both Carol and DoggyRade for making this moment possible,” said Dolores Rodrigues, founder of Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue. “We have several dogs that are visually compromised in need of necessary medical care before we can place them in adoptive homes, and this monetary gift will go towards their upcoming ophthalmological care.”

Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of Cocker Spaniels and other dogs in need of loving forever homes. The organization does not reject any dog due to age or health and often accept dogs with temperament and/or medical issues. To date, the organization has saved more than 4,500 dogs since its inception in May 2003.
