Dog Bloggers Unite! You Have Nothing to Lose But Your Guilt

I may be winding down this blog, but I’ll never stop caring about dog rescue. How could I when one small rescue dog, Frankie, made such a huge change in my life?

And I’m pleased that I’ll still be around to participate in a big push that some of my fellow bloggers are making on July 23 to call this issue to widespread public attention. Inspired by Blog Catalog, Dog Rescue Success, and the Be the Change for Animals community, we will do what we do anyway — write about the animals we love on our blogs and social media sites, only in a more focused way. It doesn’t have to be a big deal or anything formal. You can do anything from talking about how much you adore your rescue pup to donating supplies or money to your local shelter and inspiring others to do the same.

Of course if you want to go out and adopt or foster a dog, no one will have a problem with that either.

July 23. Put that date on your blogging calendar.

    Absolutely – it will be individual choice, and guilt-free. Can’t beat that!
    …and Edie, you might be changing the focus of your blogging, but you and Frankie will ALWAYS be a cherished part of our pet blogging community. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Thanks for blogging the change for animals,

      Oh, Donna, although I would like to take credit for staying longer just for this purpose, in fact I’d always planned to end August 1, when my new blog launches. I would feel guilty if I didn’t admit that ;-)
