I’m only on day four of NaBloPoMo and already I’m struggling. This does not bode well for someone hoping to win a prize at the end of these 30 days. Luckily, with a pet blog, photos and videos often count as full posts. At least, I say they do. If this space starts to turn into pictures of Shiva’s feet, you’ll know why.
Today I wanted to post a video of my dog on crack to show you what we’ve been dealing with the last couple days. Unfortunately, as soon as I pulled out a camera, she turned into Lassie, the sweetest dog in the world. I felt like that guy in the Warner Brothers cartoon. I’m going to have to be a lot sneakier next time, obviously.
As that was my only brilliant idea for today’s post and it failed miserably, you are stuck with more links. I promise they are all ten thousand times more titillating than this one.
The Daily Beast‘s Beastly Reporting on Dangerous Dog Breeds – I can’t believe we’re still at this place. It scares me how many people will see this and believe it.
Tips for a Lousy Day or Week – Shelagh Duffet’s photographs and artwork perk me up immediately.
Own Your Beauty: Imperfection, Perception, and Why There Are No Flaws – Karen Walrond is my hero. Her new book, which I am saving my pennies for, The Beauty of Different is available from Bright Sky Press and Amazon.
We Are the Cure – An important reminder about dog cancer awareness.
Want Cookies! – I have yet to try this out but it sounds like something a certain friend of mine would like.
Operation: Give Big Dogs a Break – A topic very dear to my heart. Travelling with dogs is not easy, but travelling without them is harder so most of the time we just don’t go anywhere.
Why Sisterly Chats Make People Happier – This is just interesting and makes me miss my sister even more.
Have a happy Thursday!
ETA: Vodka Berry Cheesecake – Seriously. This needs to be made at least once a week.
