This ‘N That Thursday A little of this and a little of that and everything in between…

Mr. Linky

Has anyone had a problem with the linky tool and contacting the owner?

A couple of weeks ago I went into my linky list to manage my FUF entries and I had a little issue.  No problem, I shot Mr. Linky Tools an e-mail asking for clarification and some help with fixing the issue.  I got the form e-mail back saying it’s a one man show who handles everything so please be patient.

That was almost two full weeks ago.  I’m still waiting for an answer to my question.

Have I mentioned I’m not a very patient person?

Does anyone know if it’s possible to cancel your linky subscription and get your money back?

Lagging Behind

I’m still way behind on reading and commenting on some of your blogs.  I have finally given up the google reader and am using Feedly now.  So far I really like it and I find it easy to use.  I’ve also downloaded Reeder on the iPad and hopefully I can catch up soon.

Free Style

The pressure’s on.  Next Tuesday is the last night of Delilah and my Free Style class, we were informed this week that we are expected to do a small routine and we aren’t even close to ready.

So far I’m fairly confident with about four moves, don’t get me wrong, she knows a number of tricks, I’m just not sure how to work them into a routine.

This is our show heel.

This is our show heel.

This is her touch

This is her touch

Okay, I can work the show heel in, but touch?  I’m not sure.  She does know spin and twirl and she’s getting pretty good at weaving between my legs but the last time I tried to get her to jump over my leg she stood on it.

It hurt.

I think I have our song picked out but I’m not sure what we can really put together in terms of a routine.  I may be spending this weekend cramming  like it was an exam. Any of you take Free Style?  Any thoughts on how to throw this routine together?

Co-Hosted Follow-Up Friday

A couple of weeks back I began leaking the FUF co-hostess’ name in hopes of making life a little bit easier for those of you who participate.

So without further ado, my co-hostess for this week’s Follow-Up Friday is Jackie Bouchard from Pooch Smooches. I’m excited to have Jackie co-hosting.  Please check back tomorrow for a proper introduction. :-)

Many thanks to our friends at 2 Brown Dawgs for This ‘N That Thursday.

    I received notice of this post in my email, but as I said yesterday, I hadn’t been…

    Thanks so much for participating in TNT. When I first subscribed to Linky, my subscription did not up date. I sent an email and did not receive a reply, but the issue was fixed. I am not sure I will keep the tool either.

    I think you could add “touch” into your routine along with the other moves. I bet it will be great!

    No I don’t use link so I can’t help on that :(.

    Holy moly woman I didn’t know you were taking that class with D, woman you are busy! I prefer to cram before an exam ;). Will there be a video we get to watch of it?!?!?!

  3. says

    Well, I am receiving your posts again and the email subscribe is back, I see. Who knows what is up with the internet sometimes! We have never emailed Mr. Linky we are just so excited to finally be able to post that on our posts!

    I’ve been so busy myself lately that I can’t remember what day it was I had trouble getting Mr. Linky to work, but I do remember not being able to get it working (and not having the time or patience to “dick” with it). I was using the WP app on my Kindle at the time and just figured it was a glitch. I have ideas for my own TNT post, but I’m not sure if I’ll even get around to it. I let things pile up on my desk over the last 4 months — like check card receipts — and spent most of yesterday cleaning it up. Today I have to finish the job.

    I’m having a problem with Feedly. Whenever I go there it says that I have “no unread articles” but it lies. Then it gives me a list of what I am supposed to have already read and they are ones I’ve never seen. What am I doing wrong? Anyone?

  6. says

    I’ve never messed with the Linky. I get set in my routines and don’t deviate.

    Your routine looks like fun! I know nothing about dogs and dance. But I can’t wait to see the video when you’re done!

    We don’t do the Linky thingy./.. we got a virus from it… YEARS ago… and MOM has a LONG memory…

  8. says

    Wow, I had no idea Linky was a one-man show. Huh. Hope you get an answer.

    Have never done free style – probably never could. We’d be very impressed by even 2 tricks strung together. We couldn’t take the pressure…

    WE are very excited about co-hosting FUF tomorrow!

    My routine with Fozzie was just a series of tricks really, but somehow they flowed together. I had a little help from my resident choreographer but not much, and the whole thing made me appreciate how difficult choreographing really is! But certain moves seem to flow from one another, and I tried to work off what Fozzie really enjoyed and the ways he seemed to want to move.

    And by the way, he loves you too :)

    I’ve frequently watched Freestyle videos with interest and amusement, but I have no mind for choreography. I still think it’s really neat you’re taking the class! Good luck to you!

    I used to do freestyle. It’s so much fun and so much less pressure than other dog sports. How long does your routine need to be?

    When I paid for my Linky subscription it didn’t update. I was worried because I procrastinated and didn’t pay for it until Monday evening and the blog hop was suppose to run on Tuesday. I sent Brent at Linky Tools an email and he answered back within a couple of hours and had it fixed. I was surprised because it was Memorial Day when it happened. Somewhere on the site there was a phone number to send him a text. You might try that and see if he answers!

    Hi Y’all!

    Oh, freestyle! My Human and I did some of that as well as agility! Trouble is, I outgrew the standard for Chessies and easily knock my Human down. I also get very, very excited…so my Human got a little leery, BOL! We ended up stickin’ to simple stuff like raisin’ paws in a march and combining obedience moves like turns and weaves and flying side heel changes in time to music. Oh, don’t forget the bow at the end!

    Good Luck!

    Mr. Linky Brent is always good in returning emails. We are not happy with our current reader … going to try an apple reader soon. It’s a big mess as we get lots of duplicated and some of the blogs we know we follow does not show up. Just making it toooo hard to keep up. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
