Hi everybody. It's Poppy & Penny's mom. I am taking over the blog today because of something I read on Opy's and Marvin's blogs. Opy is threatening to open a can of Whoop-ass because some bloggers are being stressed and Marvin's Jeannie is feeling guilty about not being able to read and comment on every blog everyday. I started reading the DWB quite by accident, a long time ago. I did a search on the internet for Airedales and accidentally came across Bogart's (the Airedale's) blog. I followed the link from his page and eventually found out that there was a whole community called Dogs with Blogs. A few months after I started reading the DWB, Oscar the Aire-boy died suddenly and I knew from the comments left on his blog that all of the bloggers on the DWB are very caring people. Yes, we all know that none of our pets are actually doing the typing here and that it is a community of pet lovers from all over the world. From reading the funny stories and sharing in the pain that some DWBers have endured, I decided I wanted to start a blog so I could be part of such a caring community. We all have at least one thing in common...we love our dogs, cats, hammies or whatever kind of pet you may have. The DWB allows us to share information, support each other when someone is in pain over the loss of a pet, make some new friends and laugh at the antics of our pets. I, personally, like the idea that when one of my dogs is sick, there are people all over the world praying for her and I do the same for any other pet who is sick or in pain.
From time to time, we all have trouble thinking up something to blog about, but I don't think it should cause us stress. Sometimes, we can get an idea from someone elses blog or we just won't add a new post that day. I, too, would like to be able to read and comment on everyone's blog everyday, but I know that is impossible. Yes, it's fun to read the comments that people (and pets) leave on my blog, but I realize that it is very time consuming to leave those comments. We all have lives outside of the DWB and we all know that our everyday lives come first. If we don't have the time to read the blogs or comment it shouldn't stress us out! So...in conclusion: let's not get so stressed with blogging that we make Opy open up that can of whoop-ass! None of us wants to know what is inside that can!
Now that I have vented, the girls are going to post a couple of pictures just for the fun of it!
