So, last week I shared this selfie of Rita and me in my new SlimDoggy gear that I won.
Trying to get a shot where (1) Rita's not moving, (2) I'm not looking like a dork, and (3) the SlimDoggy gear is actually in the shot was way more challenging than the above happy snap would infer. Here are some of the outtakes:
At one point I gave up...
But then got back at it again... These are my faves - Rita got all nutty and started rubbing her head against me. So cute.
Have you tried to take a selfie with your dog? Did you also have a lotta outtakes?
So Cal Fall
I wanted to share this pic cuz I LOVE fall, and lots of folks complain that we don't really have fall here in So Cal, but here's a shot of fall, San Diego-style:
|The liquidambar leaves change color, and fall... into a palm frond|
Hope You'll Hop Along!
Finally, you might remember that Peggy and I were looking for input for the name for our new hop related to cancer in pets. We got a lot of votes here on the blog and on Peggy's Facebook page for Lavender Leashes or Lavender Paws. Well, that wise girl, Sugar the Golden Retriever, retrieved some info for us that lavender represents all cancers... in humans. Canine cancer is a red ribbon with black paws. Since we want the hop to support all pets, we went with the red and black color scheme, but not the canine-specific ribbon. We also went with the name that was the next-most popular vote-getter!
So, we present the Give Cancer the Paw blog hop!
The hop will be quarterly, with our first hop next Wednesday, Nov. 6th. We hope you'll join us. You can get the linky here next week, and grab the badge from my sidebar. You can blog about anything you want related to pet cancer: a tribute to a lost pet, personal experiences, tips, research, words of support for a pet that's fighting cancer - whatever you want!
Thanks for letting me be wordy! Hope to see you at the hop next Wednesday!
