Pet Bloggers Gift Exchange

When Pamela over at Something Wagging This Way Comes first suggested this gift exchange idea, I loved the idea even though I had no idea how I was going to do it since free WordPress doesn’t allow for linky tools. Just what is a linky tool anyway? 🙂 Well, time has been slipping away from me and here I am trying to write a post like a college student cramming for a final exam. So, here is a copy of an email I sent to my “partner” when I saw his email to Pamela saying he was unsure how to do this linky thingamajig too…. “Hi Allen! You and I are in the same boat. It took me forever to figure out how to get the “Pet Blogger Gift Exchange” badge on my blog — which I don’t post to all that often now that hubby & I have the 3rd dog — and I’m still trying to figure out this “Linky List” thing. By the way, I have been enjoying Noah’s posts and your posts on your other blog. I love that you are SO involved in pet rescue! I would love to be able to foster some of the pups at our shelter; but I don’t have any more room in my house to put another crate, more food, toys, etc.; and my 2 Goldens are beyond the point where they want to play rough like they used to…which is probably a good thing given the size of our home! :-)) Happy New Year!!! Sue Callie, Shadow, and Ducky” So, here’s some linky love for you, Allen Pearson, and for Noah: Keep up the great work! I enjoy all your posts! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    What a wonderful email. I’m sure it meant a lot to Allen to get it from you.

    Nothing like getting fan mail. 🙂

    I’ll go now and put your post in the linky list so more people come by to see it. And I see you got the badge up so you learned a new tech trick. Good for you! It’s always good for we “old dogs” to learn a new trick (remind me of that when I complain of tearing my hair out over the blog).

    Thanks for joining the Pet Blogger Gift Exchange. Hope you’ll be back next year.

    I’ll definitely be back next year! Now that I kinda know what I’m doing, maybe I’ll be able to post my “linky love” earlier than the last minute! I don’t know how you manage to come up with so many subjects to blog about…I’m afraid I’d be repeating myself after a while. Anyway, looking forward to more stories about your Honey, Allen’s Noah, Jodi’s Sampson & Delilah, and Lauren’s Desmond as well as finding new-to-me pet bloggers. Happy New Year!!

      Hey, when you’re as busy as you obviously are, there’s not much time for stuff like that. It was fun, though, once I figured out what I was doing. And Allen seems like a super guy and Noah’s a handsome boy! They live not far from where my brother and his family used to live (in Northern Virginia).
      I just started following your blog…wow! you put a LOT of work into yours! I just kinda “rattle around” in mine for a while and then go do something else totally unrelated.
