Today I’m excited to be co-hostess of Follow Up Friday hosted by Jodi at Heart Like A Dog! Thank you for letting me co-host! Jodi has a fun blog that you should take a peak at if you are not already following her! Follow Up Friday is a blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend. Being a special day on my blog it makes it even more fun.
This is a big day! Two years ago today I published my first blog post. This photo was me working on my new blog…I think Mom’s photography has also improved over these two years. For one thing, she learned to not use a flash! How can a pup look decent with a flash – don’t know what she was thinking back then! I was a newbie, such a newbie that the url title was hello-world. If you work with WordPress, you know exactly where that title came from, LOL! I had no clue! I started my blog just for fun, to promote my breed, learn about how social media interacts with blogs, and really had no plan. I’m still not sure that I have a real firm plan, but the blog has definitely evolved and will continue evolving. Of course, I wish it was bigger than it is, but I am also happily shocked by all the friends and fans I do have. I am so thankful to each and every one of you that stop by to read my blog, maybe comment, like, or even share my posts. So much has happened in these two years, mostly things I had never imagined, like my modeling career, a book, a little sister, making some good friends online. I’m a very fortunate dog, and I hope that reading my blog continues to bring laughs and smiles to my readers, along with an opportunity to learn something new about dog health, safety, my breed, or whatever else I may be blogging about. My readers are what makes my blog a success and I thank you from the bottom of my paw pads to the tip of my hound nose!
I have another exciting announcement to make. This Saturday and Sunday, November 9th and 10th, my eBook will be available for free download on Amazon.com. If you haven’t read my book yet, or you are wondering if it would be a good book to give to someone as a gift, download it and take a look. Christmas is coming and it would make a great gift for kids, teens, or dog lovers in any age group! If you read it and love it, please write a short review on Amazon for me. Reviews really help move up the status of a book. Go to TalesofAFrenchScentHound.com for more info.
Tuesday I was at the vet to get my stitches out. Boy do I dislike going there, it scares me so! Everyone is so nice and friendly, but I don’t like the way they mess with me. The photo is a before and after, that piece of my lip is no longer hanging down 🙂 I did have the problem on both sides of my mouth, but the left side was the worst, so Mom chose that side to photograph. I did really well with the removal of the stitches and am healing up nicely. I need to go back for a follow up check in a month. I have my paws crossed that the dermatitis issue is gone for good! Mom says that my lips look “normal” now and don’t sag, so that is progress right there!
Tuesday night into Wednesday we got our first few inches of snow for the season. We were excited! Bailie was a bit scared of it at first, but then she found out it was edible and her world was okay again. I will post more from the first snow on Monday.
That is a wrap for this week! Stop by and say “woof” to some of the other blogs on the hop!
