Every Sunday, I sit down with my notebook in front of me and I start reading. Not my Kindle. Not a book. Not a magazine.
I start reading blog posts and most are dog blogs.
I may not always leave a comment, but I do read. A lot.
This past Sunday, I was honored with the Sunshine Award from Kelley’s Dog Blog. I love these types of awards, because it gives me an opportunity to introduce my readers to the blogs that I love.
Thank you, Kelley, for your kind words…
“Keep the Tail Wagging: This is probably the biggest, most active blog I follow. I don’t read every post (stupid life cuts into my blog time, dammit) but I pick up something every time I do. Kimberly and I don’t agree on every issue, but she’s always open to hearing a different point of view while articulating her position.”
The Sunshine Award Rules…
- I thank the blogger who gave me the award…CHECK
- I share 10 things about myself…KEEP READING
- I nominate 10 other blogs…FAIL*
*Because some bloggers don’t like to participate in these awards, I don’t like to call it a nomination, so I’ll just call it my List of Must Read Blogs. And when you count, you’ll see that I selected 13 blogs – these are the ones that I HAVE to read each week.
10 Things About Me…
I love vampires, werewolves, witches and some romance.
I go back and forth about dog breeding all the time.
Sometimes I hate therapy and I want to quit.
I’m not a fan of shows that show animals killing each other. Or singing shows.
I love reality television. Sometimes.
I don’t have a poker face.
My religious and politic beliefs are all over the place.
If I had super powers, I think I’d be a villain.
I’m a podcast junkie.
I need to lose 8 pounds.
My must read blogs…
Disclaimer: I read all kinds of blogs, these are the ones I seek out regularly. The one thing each of these blogs has in common is that I feel like I know the blogger.
My Brown Newfies – This blog reads like a pen pal letter from a dog loving friend.

Back Alley SoapBox – Super long blog posts about interesting topics and you’ll love every word.
Boingy Dog – Dog training for the novice; I follow her advice all the time and it works!

So share something about yourself with me…
