Why do I blog ? I started keeping a journal just after my son was born and I was suffering with such severe post partum depression that I was hospitalized ( hospitalized = Toon Central ). My therapist advised me it was a good way of organising my thoughts and feelings and the act of writing was therapeutic. So I started out in longhand, then I upgraded to word saving it all onto floppy disks then I graduated to online blogging this has all been over the last 14 years and the therapist was right it is a great way to sort out muddle-some noggins . Then I discovered a dog blog and thought what a fantastic idea and so my Pup Doogie started to blog also, then along came Molly and it all just took off. I have always found other doggy bloggy-ers to be a fabulous group of people, caring, supportive, funny and kind. We want to share our dogs antics and day to day lives, we want to share their personalities, foibles, whimsical ways and share them in a fun, light-hearted way. We also blog to raise awareness, awareness of cruelty, neglect, stupid BSL legislature and to show the good work of rescues and to encourage others to adopt a dog not shop for one. We all blog for different reasons and to us each and every one is valid to us personally, our views our our own personal views and readers may or may not agree with them but that is their prerogative. If readers don’t like my views then they should not read my blog.
When My Molly crossed the bridge the support I got from other bloggy-ers was over whelming not just in comments and posts, emails,stupendous blog badges and a wonderful gift but also the way you generously donated money To The Little Dog Rescue in her name. My ghast was truly flabbered but it shows the power of doggy bloggy-ing, the kindness of strangers, the compassion of other other animal lovers.
Blogging should be fun to do and fun to read, light hearted, frivolous, mad, and done with good manners ( well except for the dogs to whom all manners mean is to make sure they don’t toot right under your nose……..lol but not even that applies with my two ). I intend to keep mine like that
