Anipal Appreciation, Etc.

ANNOUNCING

Announcing……

The very first annual Anipal Appreciation Day.    A day created by everybody’s favorite pig, Bacon  for the purpose of celebrating our friends in the blogosphere and spreading the word about them to our fellow pet bloggers!

I am the FIRST to admit that I follow a lot of blogs – I follow them because I love them, but I also know there are HUNDREDS of blogs out there and many of them I really do NOT know a thing about.   So to celebrate today, I thought I’d just share THREE of the newest ones I’m following with you.

Bella and Esme of KittiesCare are two adorable kittens who are about to turn one year old and who totally turn their household upside down with their fun and antics as only kittens can do.   They are ALWAYS into something………usually something they shouldn’t be into!    They live in The Havre with their “girl-woman” and “boy-man” and I know without a doubt whenever they have a new blog post I will LOVE IT.    Even when these two get into BIG trouble, I come away after reading their blog with a smile on my face……

BELLAANDESME

Next is another new one for me anyway – that’s the wonderful, beautiful, and super caring lady known as Puppydoc – otherwise actually known as Doctor Phoebe from PhoebeMD.   What can I say about Dr. Phoebe other than she is an amazing physician who has been to many places around the world helping people who need help and doing what she seems to do best – medical care with a CARING HEART.    Not only that, but Phoebe has a beautiful big black/white kitty named Samantha – she’s gorgeous – so is Dr. Phoebe, and if you haven’t found them yet in the world of blogging, take a peek.   Dr. Phoebe writes amazing poetry and posts gorgeous artwork too………it’s a WIN/WIN!

The third of my new blog friends is a Scottie pup who is probably already known to many of you but I JUST met him recently.   He was a friend of Stuart the Scottie who many of you also knew who is now residing across the Rainbow Bridge.  Skyler Braveheart seems to have his humans wrapped around his paw and while I’m still learning about this guy, I think I’m going to truly enjoy reading about his adventures!

SKYLER

Those are just THREE of so very many blogs that I am newly following.   There are so many that I keep track of and visit every day.   There’s nothing greater than this wonderful world of caring folks that we all know in the world of Pet Blogging………………humans and critters alike – every day is an adventure.   I’m so happy to be part of it!

Thank you to EVERYONE who follows me………………and thank you to everyone who spends time crafting fun, informative, and HAPPY blogs about their pets and families – – – because of all of you, MY family has grown to epic proportions – it’s worldwide – it’s huge – and I have Cousins, Aunts, and Uncles ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL over the world!

TEASERGRAPHIC

Bacon, my friend and Cousin, you had a brilliant idea with ANIPAL APPRECIATION DAY…..I will look forward to it every single year………….and I thank you for letting me be a part of it by using the BADGE I created just for this occasion.   I’m “wearing it with pride” today and it will move to my sidebar now where it will await the passing of a year when I will be back (I hope) to share more pet blogs and fun with all of you!

ANIPALSBADGE2

Happy Pet Blogging!!!!

I LOVE ALL OF YOU!!!!

I LOVE ALL OF YOU!!!!

Hugs, Sammy

P.S.   Don’t forget – tomorrow is the TEASER!!!!!!   Watch your computers/ipads/phones, etc. for it to pop up and be FIRST COMMENTER, FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER or WRONG (hahaha)…………see you tomorrow at a RANDOM time!!!!!

      • Thanks! We lived in Mason City, IA when I got them and that is where the airport is that he flew out of when the plane crashed so it is a big deal around there and it seemed like the right names. Officially following you now and love your blog as well!

        • I have always loved hearing how pets get their names….my Mom says when she adopted me from the shelter they asked if she would rename me “Hemingway” because I am a polydactyl and they said “everyone” who has a kitty with extra toes names their boy cats Hemingway and girlcats Polly. HA! My Mom said “no way!”………and let my Dad choose a name for me. He said “he looks like a Sammy to me” and that was THAT!

          Hugs, Sammy

    • The pet blogging world is truly full of amazingly nice, kind, fun, and very creative people – AND those who visit us even if they don’t have a blog at this point in time (wink) are MORE than wonderful for being our friends. Mom and I can’t imagine our world without YOU in it……..we love you………from the bottom of my furry toes (and Mom’s non-furry ones) to the top of my slowly balding ginger cranium (and Mom’s slowly balding brownish gray cranium) thanks for being part of the blogosphere…

Your road so far for one so young has not been ideal – lots of ups and downs and health challenges, but you are hanging in there and I know you are doing your BEST. I hope there’s nothing but bright happy days ahead for you and your LAdymum………always.

I’m just happy for you two………and happy that life is better. We’re really not in this life for so very long so we need to be as happy and content as we can while we’re here!

    • Hi Flynn! Thanks for the compliments on the badge we did for Bacon…..it was a BIG DAY in the blogosphere wasn’t it? I’m so happy that so many pawticipated. I hope you’re feeling good these days my friend? I’m hanging in there – still have two or three day periods when I’m sick…..Mom is going to discuss this with my doc next month when I have my next checkup. She’s not really sure the medication is DOING anything – if you’re taking meds for something, they should eliminate or relieve the symptoms she thinks and I still have the symptoms!!!

    • I’m so happy you pawticipated in Anipal Appreciation Day……I know Bacon was very excited to have so many bloggers involved in the first celebration of friendship in the blogosphere……I learned about a LOT of new blogs yesterday too! You will LOVE Bella and Esme especially – they are the one year old kittens who live in The Hague, Holland. They are so cute and full of mischief. Dr. Phoebe is a sweet lady with a pretty cat and a big talent for poetry…..and Skyler is just a cutie pie Scottie that “discovered” us after we had posted on Stuart’s blog. I am so happy to include you all in my list of FRIENDS…..and I know it will be FOREVER too.

    • Dear boy you found your OWN way on this – with your Ladymum’s help and a lot of patience from everyone…..eventually what was wrong was figured out and now things are popping up in the RIGHT column instead of the wrong. Sometimes we want things to be right from the very first moment but it often takes time for things to become the way they should be. Especially with growing, active kitties who have a health issue! You’re definitely doing MUCH better now and I think it will be smooth sailing for you and Ladymum as long as you are patient with each other!

      Love and Hugs, Uncle Sammy
