There are two things that we all agree on when we bump into one another in the hall. One is that we all have great jobs that are sadly necessary. The other is that there is always someone else who has it worse. Continue reading
Did I mention narrowing the 26 entries down to five was tough? Did I mention I was overwhelmed with the number of entries received? Yes, I mentioned both those facts.
Now, let me tell you I was thrilled to see the number of votes received. Close to 100 people voted in my Dog Gone Good Contest! Nearly 100!
Once upon a time, I was a house/dog sitter. When folks with animals traveled out of town, they contacted me to stay at their place and take care of their animals.
One of my clients was a woman with a dog named, Lina. I loved when Lina’s owner went out of town, because Lina was one of my favorite pooches to visit.
Lina and I became very close. When Lina’s Mom was given an opportunity to relocate to Massachusetts for work/school, she asked me if I wanted to adopt her. I literally jumped at the chance, and Lina became MY Lina.
Holy tail waggers, Batman! Picking the top five was tough! Really tough! (Seriously really tough.)
Many thanks to each and every one of you that sent me a picture of a pup you love. I never thought I would receive over 20 entries. I was amazed with the response. After my amazement, I was cranky, because I had to narrow it down to five. (Who had that bright idea, huh?) Continue reading

Today is Wednesday July 11th, have you submitted your dog photo yet? Entries will not be accepted after midnight on the 14th of July. (That’s this coming Saturday for the calendar challenged.)
What is this talk about submitting a dog photo? Well, you can access my original post here. Suffice it to say, I’m looking for the best (non-professional) picture that you (or your loved one) took of a dog. I will pick my top five favorites, and I will leave the final decision to the voters. Continue reading
July 14th is approaching quickly! July 14th is the deadline to my contest that went to the dogs.
I’m hope you will sending me a picture of your dog, your neighbor’s dog, your friend’s dog, or just a dog you saw while out and about living your life. I will pick my top five favorite pooch pictures, and I will let my readers vote for the best of the bunch. Continue reading
Good people of the Blogosphere – readers, writers, and stalkers alike – I am coming to you with a contest idea.
My apologies in advance if any of you are offended by my posting a call for support. I am blatantly asking for monetary donations for an animal rescue organization I support. In the past, I’ve shared my story regarding Pick of the Litter, and I am grateful for the continued care our former pooch receives. (Our Pick of the Litter : My Story)
Today, I come to you with a letter from the Director of Pick of the Litter, Elise. Due to zoning issues, she is being forced to relocate her facility. She is in need of loans to make it happen. Please take a moment and read her information. At the end of the letter, I’ve attached the document that goes with her letter. Thank you. Continue reading
