Barking out the thank yous!!!

Oh my DOG my friends, do I ever have to apologize to ALL of you!

You see, Mom hasn’t been allowing me to blog much, and I bet many of you have thought that I have fallen off of the planet!!

I’m still here, the problem is, Mom has so many excuses for not allowing me to blog, that you wouldn’t believe it! I won’t even bore you with them all.  But today is a NEW day and here I am!

I wanted to devote today to some LONG OVERDUE THANK YOUs,  and some info that is NEW!

THANK YOU to Lassie and Benji for my WONDERFUL bandana that I won on their blog EONS ago!

Isn’t it just adorable? I wish Mom had a photo but she thinks it won’t fit on my Martingale collar, I will make her figure it out, and hopefully when I get groomed again, at some point you will see it ON ME! THANK YOU LASSIE AND BENJI!!!

Lassie and Benji also had sent me this great card!

Next, I wanted to give a shout out to the Pet Product Review Blog for having my blog as its featured Blog this week! You can read the post here.

Did you know that the Pet Product Review blog has a blog hop every month?


What is the Pet Project Review Hop?

From Pet Product Review:When it comes to making a decision on what to buy for our pets it can be tough. Is it healthy? Could it be dangerous? Will it stand up to tough playing? Having someone else’s opinion can play a big part in whether we purchase or pass. After all our pets deserve the best, right? As bloggers, we are in the wonderful position to share our experience with the whole world. The Pet Product Review Hop gives bloggers the chance to extend their reach by sharing a pet product review they did the previous month and gives pet parents the chance to learn more about something they might want to purchase.

 The Hop will be open on the 1st of each month and close on the 15th. Just come and share your favorite pet product review from the previous month. The Hop is open to any blogger as long as the following qualifications are met:

  1. The blog must be family friendly.
  2. The review must be for a product that was actually used by the post author.
  3. No reviews for electronic training equipment will be accepted.

Any posts that don’t meet these qualifications will be removed. Along with the linky, I’m also going to choose a blogger who participated in the month’s hop to feature in the next month’s hop post, plus they will get the first spot in the Linky list(even if you don’t have a review for that month).

If you have any questions about the hop, please contact me at

Sending out a BIG BARK OUT to Pet Product Review for featuring my blog!

So guys! That’s what I have been up to!

Hoping you all are having a great summer and “I’ll see ya, when I see ya!”

Barks and licks and love,
