Pet Parade Coming Wednesday!

April 23rd, 2009 · 26 Comments


If you read this blog regularly you know I love my pets.  I post about our Parson Russell Terrier, Timmy pretty often.  Our Beagle, Polly, is less active than Timmy by about 99-44/100ths percent, but she presents some great photo opportunities!  Our sweet guinea pig, Cheeks, died at the very advanced age of 6 in October last year, but he is still in our hearts and in our blog’s tagline.  I can’t bring myself to take him out.  We also have some ridiculously old goldfish.  Most people are flushing their fish two weeks after they get them.  Our oldest goldfish is named Scaly.  My youngest son won him/her at a local park in a ball toss game, in 2005!

Anyway…this is a really long-winded way to announce a Pet Parade Blog Party! This was the idea of one of my best blogging buddies, ELK at Red or Gray Depends On The Day.  ELK mentioned this idea in the comments of my This Friday I Am Thankful For… post and I totally love the idea!  I am so excited!  So the deal is, I will post Mr. Linky next Wednesday (4/29) early morning.  I will mention it on my blog each day from now until then.  ELK and I will invite blogging friends to join in!  If you have blogger and Flickr friends with pets, please invite them, too!  People will be able to post links to their blog posts or their Flickr photos on Mr. Linky, or in the comment section.  It will be a wonderful Pet Parade! I’m going to invite people/animals through Timmy’s twitter account also.  It should be a blast to see everyone’s pets.  Did I mention I’m so excited!!!  So go ahead, pose those pets, get them in the wild, catch them while they’re sleeping!  Then, bring your links here on Wednesday!

Go see what everyone else is Hooked On at Julia’s Hooked On Fridays!

The parade has begun! Go join the Pet Parade now!

    I’m totally in!!

    Does it have to be a new post, or can it be an existing post? I just posted a bunch of dog pics last week. As much as I love my dogs and looking at pictures of them, another post with their pics might be a bit much for our blog readers!!

    Fun…although trying to take pictures of my dogs can be a little…well challenging. But I’ll do my best. Most of the time they are running around the yard, chasing the kids or each other so I could just end up with a series of black blurs.

    Although I have a crappy camera (or possibly bad operater error), I am SO joining in on this!! I love my babies, and love taking pictures of them. This afternoon, my tuxedo was drinking water and the sun was shining through the stained glass into his water bowl…wish I’d had my camera…it was hilarious!

    What a great idea. My beloved Rupert has been gone for 12 years now and I still think of him almost daily…he was my first baby…long before I had children…sniff…sniff….now I am really missing my little guy but he was such a joy and I am so thankful to have had him.
