I hope you all had a wonderful week! It’s been busy around here! We’re dog sitting Cady, aka Lucas’ best friend in the whole entire world. Last time we dog sat, she looked like this:
Now, the little darling looks like this:
My, how fast they grow! She’s bigger than Emmett (much to his dismay) and nearly the size of Lucas. Luckily, her energy makes up for any poundage he has on her!
And now a few links to share before you head off to enjoy your weekend…
First, a little self-promotion: I got to write about dog-friendly landscaping and nontoxic pet toys, which was really fun for me. A new website launched, devoted entirely to books about pets, and I’m super excited that I get to be a contributing reviewer. And I received over 20 postcards for the Campaign to End BSL! A great week, all around!
And now for a little cat love!
June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month. Here’s a great project from Petfinder.com:
To give adoptable cats everywhere their chance in the spotlight, Petfinder.com is holding a fun photo contest dubbed “The Whiskers” (a playful homage to the Academy Awards) where you can vote on the best kitty-photos in a variety of CAT-egories from “Best Newcomer” to “Best Comedic Performance.” You can vote here: www.petfinder.com/thewhiskers. If you’re addicted to funny cat videos and LOLCat photos, you’re going to love voting on these super sweet kitties – maybe you’ll even find one you want to adopt!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Emmett and I have the read-to-the-dogs program at our public library on Saturday, but otherwise we’ll just be hanging around the house, relaxing!
What about you? Doing anything fun with your pets?
