My Shameful 2014 Annual Report

Hi and Happy New Year All!

It’s Dakota and I have a MAJOR bone to pick with my Mom today!

My Mom kept saying throughout 2014 that she was not paying enough attention to MY blog and was paying WAY TOO MUCH attention to Cody’s! Well, after seeing this report, I would say that MY blog had better be at the top of her list in 2015!!!



See what I mean?

I would like to thank EVERYONE that was kind enough to stop by, in SPITE of the fact that often the “lights were on but no one was home!”

I am a WORKING dog and my performance in 2014 was unacceptable to say the least!

I assure you, I will do my Sheltie BEST to change that in 2015!!!

Thank you to:

    Buddy, do you live from your blog? If not, there is nothing to be ashamed of. The main focus should be to have fun and reach your own personal goals, what the stats say shouldn’t matter. Have fun, enjoy blogging and that is what counts! Happy 2015!

  10. Look at you!

  11. Well Dakota, you just keep on your mom and I’m sure she will work harder for you this year. I think she does a pretty good job though. 😉

  12. If you’re pulling those numbers without full focus, I can only imagine 2015 will be huge! Looking forward to being along for the ride.

  13. Jan K says:

    Well, we don’t have anything to compare that to, because we don’t get one of those nice reports! But we don’t think the numbers look too bad. Around here, the Momz can barely keep up with one blog plus everything else going on in life, so she can understand if your Mom has trouble doing fantastic on two. Happy New Year anyway, and we look forward to seeing you more in 2015!

  17. We are so proud to be on your list! I am thinking that Dakota needs to do the “cat thing” of getting on keyboards, climbing on desks, making bread on your lap to keep you on your Dakota’s Den toes. Hahaha! I work non-stop on keeping one going strong, I can’t imagine two! Happy New Year! ♥

  18. My niece Heather had to let her Sheltie Chipper go OTRB over Christmas. She came home to Roanoke to be with him when it was time. Chipper loved snow. When she went back to San Diego, it snowed there. That was Chipper’s OTRB gift to Heather. You are your mama’s gift, Dakota. I know she’ll let you bark more this year. Chipper will make sure of it!

  24. Well, those stats were a lot better than mine, and I have no one to blame but myself. I totally dropped the ball on writing and visiting other blogs. Hope you have a wonderful New Year (and that your blog beats the pants off your rival sibling’s blog in 2015!!)

    Oh boy…….well…..looks like I spend more time commenting than I do blogging! My blog has been noticeably quiet lately!

    Nothing to be ashamed of. Life happens. I know your mom still loves you to the moon and back.

  26. Oh, Dakota – you do have it ruff. But… I can’t really talk. I barely keep one blog going and your mom keeps TWO going, so I think that’s pretty amazing! Here’s to everyone having a happy and productive NY!

    Hoo boy, I’d hate to see my report! Well Dakota, you are one of the blogs I follow and visit regularly. I’ll look forward to seeing you often in 2015. I too am resolved to do more posting. Actually my blog goals for 2015 are quite a list, so I’ll be busy in January.

    Y’know what Dakota? Your poor mum could post a trillion times a day and we could still never get enough of you… go easy on her 🙂

  30. Hi Dakota! We been leaving you greetings and hugs on Cody’s blog. But we decided that what with 2015 beginning, we’d come visit you directly. And it’s looking like it was a good idea. We so sorry your Mom abandoned your blog for Cody’s blog. We are sure she will correct that in the new year. You know, our Mumsy at one tim had 5 dogs. (That truly flabbergasted us.) She had one then took in an abandoned one. After that, people would just leave puppies abandoned in her yard! Then for two, some people moved away and left their dogs behind! Anyway…. Hugs to you, sweetheart! And we look forward to visiting you in the future. Now, you can say hi to Cody for us!

      Hi Guys!! How sweet are YOU??!! THANK YOU! I can use all of the help that I can get! So, you visit today and Mom was so devastated with the Lions game that she got NO blogs done for today! BOL!! She promises to be better in the future. I am so happy you are visiting me! I am sorry about those abandoned dogs, those people are like my Mom abandoning my blog! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  31. Kroten says:

    I think you have better annual report than mine 😉

    Anyway, Happy new year Dakota and aunt Caren. Too bad we are not in your top commenter 😉

  32. Jodi says:

    I’m sure many people would be happy with those stats Dakota, but I understand your concern. Maybe Mom’s been at too many football games? 😉 You might have to put your paw down. 🙂
