The Pet Blogger Challenge!

It’s a new year and so many things have changed. I am thankful for the opportunity to reflect and refocus through the Pet Blogger Challenge, initiated by fellow pet-bloggers Edie Jarolim of Will My Dog Hate Me? and Amy Burkert of Go Pet-Friendly.

1. When did you begin your blog?

Our first blog post is dated March, 2010, but was actually posted in June, 2010. 

2. What was your original purpose for starting a blog?

I originally started blogging for myself only.  I had intended to keep track of the milestones and achievements my dog and I made together and to document our experiences as a therapy dog team.

3. Is your current purpose the same?

Our purpose has changed a bit.  Lu and I achieved our therapy dog certification far ahead of our anticipated timeline, but it turns out that being a therapy dog isn’t really her ‘thing’.  And though I still blog mainly to keep track of the milestones and achievements we’ve made, I’ve started blogging about things that I think other people might find helpful or interesting, such as product reviews and information about rescue. 

We’ve also added a new member to our furry family, so I’m keeping track of his life as well. 

4. Do you blog on a schedule or as the spirit moves you?

Aside from my "Wall-eyed Wednesdays" posts, I have no set schedule.  I blog whenever my dogs do something that I find amusing, when we achieve a training goal, when something I think might be helpful to others pops into my head, or when I come across something interesting on the web. 

5. Are you generating income from your blog?

I am not generating any income from my blog, although I wouldn’t mind doing so.

6. What do you like most about blogging in general and your blog in particular (bragging is good!)?

My dogs make me smile.  They bring a joy to my life that I never knew existed.  I love being able to reflect on what we’ve done together and smile all over again.  And I hope that maybe they can bring a smile to someone else out there! 

7. What do you like least?

The anxiety of wondering if anyone out there is reading!  I try to remember that I started this blog for me, but I’ll admit, I do want people to read it.  I just keep telling myself that if I write what I want to read, others will want to read it, too. 

8. How do you see your blog changing or growing in 2011?

After a hiatus due to injuries I sustained in a car accident, and due to Wally’s hip injury, we’ll be returning to training. Yay!   We should have many training tips, milestones and achievements this year.  

I’ve also purchased a new camera, so I hope everyone likes pictures!

Are you out there?  We’d love to hear from you.  Don’t be shy – leave us a comment and let us know you dropped by!

Wags ‘n Kisses,
