As many people have written in the last few days, tomorrow is Blog the Change for Animals. It is the time where we all think about a cause that is vital to our hearts, write about said cause, and share it with the entire online animal welfare community. I was on the ball enough to take part in October and even helped a wonderful dog find his forever home. You can read about it in the comments. It stuns me that my little space was able to make such a difference in a dog’s life. I am so grateful to his adopters and I hope Fenrus is continuing to do well.
There is still lots of time to join in. Just grab the badge from the Be the Change for Animals website, write your post, and link it up tomorrow morning. Not only will you have done something to help, but you will be joining a pantheon of devoted people who have done inspiring things for animals. The real, hard, on-the-ground work so many people perform is humbling. I can’t wait to read what everyone else has to say.
For some reason I kept thinking the big day was today. Brain still numb from holiday gorging? As such, I didn’t have anything mentally planned to babble about. Furthermore, I am still miserably behind on my blog reading – my reader is in fact no longer speaking to me. We’ve decided to take a break, cool our jets, and then get back together over a cup of tea to try to work things out. Hopefully we can come to some sort of compromise before the day is out.
While I am working on that, I am going to
force you to watch, share with you this video of Shiva not performing one of her tricks yesterday. Yep, I said not performing. It looks like a certain trainer has been lazy. Shame on her.
Oh! It turns out there is something for you to read today after all! I recently wrote a review of Steven Kotler’s new book A Small Furry Prayer for All Things Dog Blog and it is up! If you like books and/or dogs, please check it out. I assure you it is much more interesting than this post. And much better written. With less sentence fragments. Do I have to beg?
