I'm not sure how many blogs I follow but it's quite a few! A lot more than 6 but only 6 are written by men! All the blogs I follow are doggy related and there are probably zillions of doggy blogs I don't read that are written by men:) But in my limited reading the vast majority are written by women. Is it because we have got more time (!), we are more eloquent, we care more, we like to brag about our kids, we just like to natter about our kids, we got sick of boring our friends so we started a blog but don't really mind if no-one else wants to read about our kids? There are lots more possible reasons, I'm sure, but I'm interested in knowing if you agree with me that most of the doggy (perhaps even animal) blogs are written by women and if you have any ideas as to why:)
I was recently given a Stylish Blogger award
by Sue and Song from Graceful Greyhounds, thank you girls:) I think I'm supposed to pass it on to 7 blogs I enjoy reading but I'm just going to pass it on to the 6 blokes, so here they are in no particular order ....
Coffee With A Canine - who does interviews with people and their dogs and we were delighted to be featured a few weeks ago, thanks Marshal:)
A Bit of Loki - apart from having a gorgeous Greyhound, Mr Mischief is into all sorts of imaginative stuff, but you'll have to check his blog out for yourself!
A Dogs Journey - which is about Kassa and his very new brother, Ricky. They are 2 ex-racing Greyhounds now enjoying retirement as pets:)
Shutterhounds - this is a mixture of Greyhounds and gorgeous photography. If you're interested in either it's a must see:)
Whippet Tales - which, funnily enough, is again gorgeous photos but of Whippets this time.
I haven't forgotten the infamous Life With Dogs who surely needs no introduction but I suspect he has probably been given 16,386 of these awards already. I'll let him know I've got one here if he wants it though:)
Now, we really should have a token woman here, shouldn't we? This is where it gets tough as I've found a few really cool blogs in recent weeks but I'm going to give it to a favourite that I've been following for a while and it's Needle Noses which, yes, is about 2 Greyhounds and their Mum has the wickedest sense of humour I've come across ... but she gets that from her Dad I think;)
OK, I did manage 7 blogs! I'm also supposed to tell you 7 things you don't already know about me and/or my kids, and that's harder than finding 7 blogs.
While I try and think of some things you don't already know about us I'll chuck in a video I did today of my Princess running with just a nubbin! The first part I took a few days after she had her tail docked and understandably she isn't running flat out or making any tight turns. Her nubbin probably got a jolt with every step she took! Shortly after I took the first bit of video she took a tumble and hurt her confidence and her nubbin and it took 3 weeks before she would venture into the velodrome again! And she only wanted to run by herself. She's still unsure if she's with other Greyhounds about running with them, but she'll come right. You'll see in the last part of the video, which I took on Friday at the beach, how happy and confident she is running alone:)
Here we go ....
1) Beryl and I are both Australian:)
2) Frankie likes to eat his meals in Beryl's crate.
3) I've got 8 tattoos.
4) I love my iMac computer which I bought nearly a year ago.
5) Beryl has talons instead of toenails!
6) We'd all love to live at the beach (but wouldn't most people with dogs?)
7) I have to get up at 5-15 tomorrow morning for work:(
OK, I know that wasn't very interesting but because I have to get up so early for work and should be in bed now I haven't got time to think of anything imaginative!
But I mustn't forget the Saturday Pet Bloggers Hop
Life With Dogs and you can find the instructions on his blog. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Seeya ....
