Welcome to this week’s edition of Follow-Up Friday, the blog hop that let’s you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.
Joining me this week and saving my behind is the Fabulous Flea, who is the only flea I actually like. Please don’t tell me you don’t know Flea, because if you don’t know Flea, you’re really missing out. I’m not kidding when I say, every time I visit her blog, I leave with a smile on my lips.
Make sure you stop by and say hello.
The Dogs of Blogville Calendar contest is almost over and it’s a hotly contested race between the Collies.
There’s just something about those Collies.
I’m sorry for those of you who have had problems with the voting. The tool is a plug-in and I have no control over it. If I run this contest again next year, I hope to find a better voting tool. This one works, but it’s not perfect. Ideally I’d like the photos to have the blog name and voting button all in one.
I did try and answer questions directly on that post seeing the voting period is so short.
Emma has told me her mom is terrified of snakes so I’m not posting any photos. Sorry Emma, I never intended to frighten anyone, I thought it was a funny story. I’ll try not to post anymore snake photos.
Bren asked, “So how long before you move Nagini into the house in a tank?”
Um that would be never. I can tolerate it in the wood pile, but never intentionally in my house. True story, our neighbor feeds the racoons and foxes. On Hubby’s walk the other night her daughter stopped him and said, “My mom heard you talking about a snake in your yard and she’s worried it might come into ours.”
REALLY? YOUR MOM FEEDS WILD ANIMALS AND SHE’S WORRIED ABOUT A GARTER SNAKE? WTF? I’d be more worried about a rabid raccoon then I would about a Garter Snake happily ensconced in a wood pile.
Houndstooth said, “OMG! You said “wood!””
LOL yes, yes I did. And I just said it twice more too. Hang on, I’m looking for a way to use “unit.” **giggles**
Pam said, ” I want to see what kind of snake this is!”
Pam, here is a link to the original post. It has a pretty good close-up of the snake. I think I proved that I’m not brave enough to get any closer than I have too! See Emma, no photos.
I never know what to expect when Delilah takes over the blog. As Donna mentioned on facebook she’s sassy. Yes she is. And she’s bold too. You need never wonder what Delilah is thinking.
Doggy’s Style asked, “I wonder how was the smell in the kitchen. For dogs great I imagine, but for humans?”
It smelled pretty good actually. Similar to a beef roast cooking.
Two French Bulldogs asked, “Do you ever rent out your mom?”
Um I’m pretty sure Delilah would not let me go without a fight.
Frankie and Ernie said, “GARLIC? We keep hearing that we can’t have garlic… butt it is sooooooo good.”
I’ve heard this too, but I feed my dogs BugOff Garlic to help ward off fleas and ticks and my vet is aware of it. My understanding is it’s the form of garlic ingested. Like you should never eat a bulb of garlic. But I would say that you should check with your own vet before you decide whether to use it or not.
The Fabulous Flea asked, “Where on earth do you find beef heart?”
Believe it or not there was a flyer in my Dr.s’ office for a local farm. They had tongue too, but I just couldn’t bring myself to buy that.
Pam said, “Put some in the freezer? What? You didn’t demand it all right then?”
Delilah here, “Actually I did. But she’s stubborn that one and doesn’t always listen to me. It’s okay, I forgive her though, she’s amazing in so many other ways.”
KB asked, “I’m like your mom about treats – so how do you turn on the oven?”
Delilah again: ”I’ll be dogged if I know, but if I ever find out, I’ll be making my own treats!”
Thank you all for the incredible comments. The fact that so many of you get where I’m coming from and what I’m hoping to achieve here means a lot to me. And you can certainly articulate it better than I can.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want this blog to make some money. But it would have to be exactly the right fit, I mean you can be guaranteed that you will NEVER see an ad for something I don’t believe in.
Thank you, thank you for reading, commenting and coming back. I appreciate and treasure your friendship.
That’s it for me, please check in on Sunday when I share something Delilah does that makes me laugh and that I’ve been trying to capture on camera for months.
Thanks to the Fabulous Flea for co-hosting with me and if you’d like to co-host yourself, please let me know in the comments.
