Co-Hosted Follow-Up Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Co-Hosted Follow Up Friday Blog hop, the blog hop that let’s you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend. My co-hostess this week has co-hosted many times before, I’m always grateful to have her and I always love reading stories about her Brown Dawgs.

Many thanks to our friends at the 2 Brown Dawgs blog for co-hosting with me this week.

Rub-a-Dub-Dub – Author’s Note

It’s great hearing all the code people use when talking around their pets.  It never ceases to amaze me how smart our pets are.

When my pups get their nightly treat Delilah takes hers to the living room and Sampson gets his in the bedroom.  There was this one night where I put his treat on the bed and went into the kitchen.  He came strolling in and looked at me and I said, I set your treat up on the bed, go ahead in I’ll be there in a few minutes.

I’ll be damned if he didn’t head right into the bedroom.

What’s Yours Is Mine – Author’s Note

As Pamela stated, “Copyright is changing and bloggers need to be part of the discussions.”

Each blogger has their own idea of how they want their work shared.  The creative commons license gives you many options to choose from, personally I think putting a creative commons on your blog let’s others know loud and clear what your expectations are.

What I forgot to add in that post is this picture of Sampson was included in the picture book I wrote, “And Along Came Sampson.”  It’s copywritten along with the book.  Did you know you could copyright pictures?  I didn’t either.

I Like Sticks – Author’s Note

I was really happy to read that most of your dogs eat weird stuff and throw it up too!

Somehow that didn’t sound right.

I meant it’s not unusual for a pet to eat something it shouldn’t and then throw it up.  Hey, he could be like Freighter and eat throw rugs. :-)

One Word – Author’s Note

It’s so weird, when I first read about the one word challenge immediately Heart popped into my head.  I’m touched and humbled how many of you thought it was a perfect choice for me.  And I appreciate that so many of you feel I am already putting my heart into this.

Personally I can’t think of a more perfect word to focus on this year.

For those of you who chose a word to focus on this year, please feel free to leave me a comment or drop me an e-mail and let me know how your journey is going and if I can help you in any way.

I noticed after I posted this that Melanie’s blog said she would stop making buttons after January 31st.  But she made mine last weekend. :-) So I figure it’s worth a shot if you want a button to display on your blog.  If Melanie won’t make one, I’ll make one for you.

Just let me know.

This ‘N That Thursday – Update

We are truly blessed to have such a beautiful area for hiking and I’m grateful for the longer days when we have the opportunity to get out.  There is something about walking in the woods that helps me decompress far better than a walk around the block does.

And yes, I’m going to seize those opportunities whenever I can.

That’s it for this week’s Co-Hosted Follow-Up Friday, many thanks to The 2 Brown Dawgs blog for joining us today.

    Great wrap-up of your week! I am so jealous that you have woods so close to your home…I find them wonderfully soothing, too. Heart (Like A Dog) = Jodi = you’re doing a great job on the project!

    Bwhaha I guess that would be throw-up rugs in Freighter’s case! I will be so happy when his eating stage is over. Chewing is one thing…but he swallows what he chews! :)

    Thanks for asking me to co-host again. I am always happy to do it.

    We are getting snow today, but hopefully that will be it. Have a nice weekend!

    “He came strolling in and looked at me and I said, I set your treat up on the bed, go ahead in I’ll be there in a few minutes.”

    Jodi…I see my dogs do stuff like that all the time, especially Toby. Makes you wonder just how much more than we think they do. :-)

    Love the puppy pic of Sampson from your children’s book!

    My knowledge of copyright couldn’t even fill my dog’s water bowl. I know I should probably be much more educated about the legal aspects of blogging before I run into any major issues but I haven’t been irritated enough to get motivated. Most of my website is so personal that I’ve never really thought of it infringing on anyone else. But it is a crazy world and you never know…

    PS I also love Sampson’s puppy pic! They grow up so fast, don’t they?! And, I’m still chuckling at Pamela’s idea of hiding the car keys — she may be right so watch out! Callie and Shadow never cease to amaze me at the things they understand when I’m babbling to myself.

    It’s so hard to pick just one word! By the time I did, it would be summer, I think 😉 I do like your “Heart” button, though, certainly.

    Sometimes writin ga dog blog and reading others’ is kind of like a support group, I think. One person confesses this weird thing their dog does, others agree, etc. It’s pretty awesome!
