Remember that grand idea I had for a co-hosted blog hop, the one where I threw it out there and then skipped every other week? Well I think I finally have it together.
My co-host this week is someone near and dear to many of you. She’s creative, witty and incredibly supportive and that’s not her only claim to fame, she’s actually tamed a tornado on a leash. Her relationship with her dog Shiva, gives me hope for Delilah.
Please join me in welcoming today’s co-host, Kristine from Rescued Insanity.
If this went well, we are actually hopping and if it didn’t well, please bear with me. Per the usual I’m a little challenged with some of the technical stuff.
If you are new to the blog, Follow-Up Friday gives me the opportunity to revise or update a post from the previous week. It wraps up the week and leads you right into the weekend.
Feel free to join us every Friday or whenever the need strikes you. If you are interested in co-hosting, please leave me a message in the comments and indicate your level of interest (once, once a month etc..) and I will add you to the list.
A tidbit about the changing of the leaves, in case you don’t know. We have something called “peak season” this is when the colors of our leaves are the most beautiful. I think we are in peak right now, so I’ve been out to the most scenic areas I know and I’ve been snapping pictures.
These were snapped at a local reservoir on our way home from Sampson’s vet appointment Wednesday evening. It was just before sunset, I used my little pocket point and shoot camera without the flash and I have to say, I’m very pleased with the shots.
Clicking on an image will enlarge it.
Back before Delilah joined our pack, this reservoir was one of our favorite places to walk. Sampson was beyond tickled to back at his old stomping grounds. I only wished I’d had more time to really let him run and explore. I promised him we will go back.
I Believe The Children Are Our Future – Author’s Note
You all left such nice comments, which has really got me thinking as to how I can get this kick-started. I had an idea that I ran past my mentor, and I want to share it here with you.
Right now it is just an idea which if I’m going to pull it off, will take some quick work.
What do you think of a calendar “Blogville Dogs and Their Rescue Cause”? It would be a 12-month calendar and feature a different dog/blog from each month. The caption would include the dog’s name, their blog address and the rescue they support.
Remember I’m still in the thinking stage (and if there is no or little interest it won’t even happen.) It would be run similar to a contest where you would send a good quality photo of your pet and we would have people vote. My thought is we would have specific submittal and voting periods for each month. (For example, January pictures would be submitted from Oct 22nd thru Oct 24th and voted on October 26th and so on.)
My intent was to have the proceeds go to a rescue, but the funds COULD be used to for the initial funding of an educational program.
Of course my appointment with my state rep isn’t until November 1st, so it could be I’m still standing at square one with no idea where to go. In that case, I would choose a couple of different rescues (preferably ones that focus on education) and donate to one of them.
Thoughts, comments and suggestions?
Did I mention this is the Follow-Up Friday Blog hop hosted by Rescued Insanity and Heart Like A Dog?
