Determined to Blog

Since I'm having issues with the blog follow through, here's what I'm doing today. I've got two windows open, and as the thoughts flow while I'm reading other people's Blogs, they are going down!! I'll link the blogs that inspired the thoughts, and hopefully if you haven't before, you'll check them out :)

First... gotta love The Sunday McLinky Addition over at Look What Mom Found...and Dad Too. With the wedding and the move, our bank account is praying we choose NOT to celebrate Christmas. With 3 kids, that's not really an option, so S.M.A lets me enter a whole bunch of contests and the laws of averages says I have to win SOME... right????

"You made me bleed my own blood". My favorite Ben Stiller line ever!! Well Travis over at I Like To Fish... He made me cry my own tears!! you have to read today's post, it is SO touching. And once you've read it, compare that sweet little girl with my 7 year old Munchkin. Last night I told him his important job during the wedding was to walk me down the aisle. His response? "How much you gonna pay me?" Oh.. and if you haven't, PLEASE read his TMI Thursday posts... ALL of them!!! Seriously!! You will pee you pants guaranteed or your money back.

Fred at One Bark at a time, works for our local Animal Services Agency. You'll find most of his post are about the animals we have here in Toronto, but if your ANY kind of an animal lover, you will love his blog. My two favorite series' he's working on right now are about the Toronto Humane Society (Please Please read these. Although the scandal/investigation is locally based, it raises some important questions, AND... the word NEEDS to get out!!!) and the vacation he just took and spent at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, where he met Lucas, one of "The Vick Dogs".

(oh... and speaking of Micheal Vick The Dog Killer, you should check out BAD RAP's blog. They are the agency that stepped in and helped save the animals that Micheal Vick The Dog Killer was brutalizing and murdering on his estate. One of my favorite posts?

Out In Iowa, and Back Home in Oakland. Why? Because if you scroll to the bottom of this post, you'll see a piece about the "Dog Fighter Go Home" banner that Bad Rap had flown over the Oakland Coliseum, and the clash of animal lovers Vs. Sports fans when Micheal Vick The Dog Killer was in town for a game. Go Bad Rap!!

Your other option when it comes to Vick Dogs is the Vick Dog Blogs where you can read about their days, learning that the world isn't such a scary place, and see some GREAT pics of these lovable pups that were deemed killers, and that PETA wanted destroyed. Thank Goodness BAD RAP, BFAS, and others stepped up to the plate.)

That's my morning reading. I've ignored Munchkins Pleas for Breakfast long enough. Time to get him some chow.

Those last couple blogs have me aching for a "Berner Hug" from Bernie, my BMD... so here's a virtual hug from my monster of a dog to you.
