Save Oliver James Giveaway!!!

Sweet N Sour Deals has put together a giveaway in honor of Oliver James, a rescued Golden Retreiver Puppy.
Oliver James was rescued before he was even born by Laura Kody.
At 8 weeks old Oliver suddenly lost his ability to walk, and Laura began taking him to vets to find a cure. They saw 9 vets and spent thousands of dollars on testing, but no one knew what his condition was or could give them much hope for his survival. Finally, They saw a specialist and he was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Osteo-dystrophy.
Over the past year she has tried every treatment available for him and watched him go through recurirng bouts of joint swelling, lameness, and pain so terrible that he couldnt bear to be touched.
A few months ago he started screaming when she touched his mouth, and at that time the vet diagnosed him with his second condition, Craniomandibular Osteopathy.
Over the next few weeks his jaw went through similar bouts of swelling, pain, infection, and calcification that his legs had felt before. Finally his jaw closed shut permanently. He has been unable to eat, drink, pant, chew, or even lick his lips ever since. Laura bottle feeds him 6-10 times a day to keep his weight up, but despite her many efforts he weighs only a very scary 15.4 pounds. To put that in perspective, his littermates all weigh around 60. His toenails have begun to fall out from malnourishment.

Laura also posts daily updates on the Help Save Oliver James Facebook page HERE

Fall Apple Festival Giveaway

Have you heard the news? It's apple season here in the United States! If you are someone who loves apples and apple desserts, this is the time to pick fresh apples from your local orchard. If you live in Ohio, apples are priced higher this year from lack of supply due to weird weather. If you are a Pinterest addict like us, discounted apples (not in Ohio) also means you can try all the delicious apple recipes being pinned without spending a small fortune on apples!
To celebrate the start of the Apple Season, Budget Earth and Mew Review are having their own Fall Apple Festival and you are invited! All of your favorite blogs are pitching in to offer our readers some awesome apple themed prizes, like a Collector's Edition of Apples to Apples AND an Apple Scented Soy Candle! While we may not be able to give all of our readers free hayrides and homemade treats, we hope you do enjoy our small festival! To learn more about this family game, check out Mew Review's review of Apples…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using Campusbookrentals.com for the other two …
