Five Thousand Visitors!


I normally don’t do mundane, non-dog-related posts but I have to give a serious thank you to all of my readers and blog visitors.  Thanks to you guys, we’ve made it to 5,000 visitors…well, 5,016 visitors as of this post… in the short while that the blog has really been up and moving with some regularity (or in other words, that I’ve been posting more frequently!).

A lot of the goals I originally started out with for this blog have changed and upgraded.  I’d like to eventually start having contests, reviews and other things.  I always welcome guest authors who’d like to post about subject matter I’ve not had a chance to explore from the working aspect end of things and other bright and wonderful ideas that will grow this blog into a beautiful creation with the help of its readers.

I can’t begin to thank you enough and hope you keep reading and keep sharing.  The dogs and I are glad to have you here now and for the future!

The Why Of It All

I’ve always loved writing but I’ve been a horrid blogger.  I always seem to forget about the blog I’m writing in regardless if the subject matter is something I’m passionate about or not.  Not having a physical item near me to remind myself, like my journal, leaves me lacking at times.  That being said, I figured I’d give it a shot and run with it.

To introduce myself – I’m Amanda.  I’m a self-diagnosed dog addict.  I live, breath and work for the five heathens that call my house their home.  They are one of the most important things in my life and their safety, well-being and happiness are and always will be one of my top priorities.  I am fiercely protective of them because of it and tend to get very loud if someone trashes them.

As for the purpose of this blog?  Well, it’s a personal outlet to showcase my living, breathing journey in the dog world.  It’s not always going to be pretty and I’m likely going to be wrong more times than I am right but that’s what makes it fun.  You may or may not like the contents of some of my entries and that’s okay.  I welcome all opinions – good and bad – on my writings and ramblings because it allows me to grow and access where my shortcomings may lie.

That being said – thanks for stopping by and I hope my antics and the antics of my pack – Luna, Ryker, Lyric, Mika and Duo – will help you all learn and grow as we do.
