This week is the three year anniversary and the final FitDog Friday Blog Hop. It is rather sad to say farewell to a blog hop we participated in regularly, and eventually became a cohost of. Times change in the blogging world, and it is time to move on. No worries, though, I will still be a fit dog, and continue to post a lot about canine fitness!
As a farewell send off to a hop that has been near and dear to My GBGV Life I thought it would be fun to look back at some of the most popular and some of the monumental posts over the past three years.
My first FitDog Friday post was on April 19, 2013 when Bailie’s breeder brought a couple GBGV puppies to my house for a play date. It was tempting for Mom to keep one, but she resisted. Little did she know just months down the road, Bailie would join our family.
Another milestone post was on August 1, 2014 which was my first FitDog Friday as a cohost. That week we had cousin Lena staying with us which added extra fun to our yard. I want to thank SlimDoggy and To Dog With Love for asking me to cohost. It has really been a great time and I am sad to see this hop end. We have learned so much through all the different posts with tips and stories over the past few years!
Thanks to little Bailie joining our family in September 2013, one of my most popular posts was the “double wide” tunnel games. Bailie and I had such a blast in our tunnel.
Katie and I also helped Bailie pass her obedience class. Nothing helps a puppy learn more than learning by example. This was another wildly popular post in January 2014.
FitDog Friday also has helped Katie immensely. We have discovered so many tips on products and exercises for senior dogs with arthritis and muscle problems. She wouldn’t be doing as well as she is without the tips!
Our Nose Work and Tracking activities have been pretty popular posts. I have a special section on my home page for these posts too, so no one will miss out on them! Getting involved in a fun sport with your dog is such a wonderful thing! My first Nose Work Title post was very well visited last year.
January 1, 2016 was a big post when I offered up some of my favorite tips for keeping fit in the winter months. We just love winter at our house!
I could go on and on with my favorite posts from FitDog Fridays of the past. It has been a wonderful time but it is time for a rest! I always love seeing what other dogs are up to and how they are staying fit. I will always be grateful to blogging for my nose work career. I’ve said it before, and will say it again, I first read about nose work on Jodi’s blog, Heart Like A Dog, and thought it sounded fun. Now here I am with several titles and looking to get even more. I can can honestly say, reading what others do for fitness has changed our lives at my house, and for the better.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in the FitDog Friday Hop the past three years! We hope to continue to see you on the fitness tracks in Blogville!
