Something really wonderful happened recently for sure. The original, the one and only Dogs With Blogs web site returned! That's right! DWB is back and better than ever!
What is DWB you ask? Just about the bestest web site ever for us dogs to get together and have total funballs is all.
Let me tell you a story...
A long long time ago in the year 2007 I was surfing the internets, looking for some mentals stimulation. As I was wont to do, I put Airedale Terrier in my google search given how I kind of missed my Grandpa Angus sometimes and one day I found a link to this.
That's right, it was an actual blog written by an actual dog. And not just any dog, but Bogart Handsome Devil himself!
Jackpot! I couldn't wait to read his new posts and see what he was up to. And you know what else? I found out that he had lots of pals. Yuh, lots of other cool awesome doggies who were writing their thoughts too.
"I want in!" Says I.
As luck would have it, Master gave Momma her digitals flashy for Christmas that very year and along with Bogart's help I started my very own blog. Look! Here is my first entry ever!
Back then, momma was kind of blogger challenged and my photos were tiny. Huh? Check it out. In my youthful days almost no grey furs on my snooter.
I didn't get many comments. Nope. But I kept plugging away and sure enough, other doggies found me. Like Maggie and Mitch! Hey! Are they eating macaronis? I want some!
And they told me about this awesome web site called Dogs with Blogs where all sorts of blogging canines could meet up and share adventures and have contests and holiday card exchanges and even let their humans communicate with each other.
Well, you can bet I joined spit spot and before I knew it I was meeting all sorts of wonderful doggies from all over the entire world for sure!
And momma even made pals with some doggie humans. A bunch of them came to my estate to admire my large and handsome self. Well, who wouldn't?
That's not all. Because DWB had lots of fun contests each and every month. Yuh. PeeWee and I won Awesome Photo of the Month for this exciting bitey face action shot!
And Hector Wheelie won Awesome Post of the Month for when he went to work with Momma!
And in 2009 I got the highest honor possible, the prestigious Awesome Blog award. That was like one of the biggest thrills of my large and lasting over six years life because it was voted on by other doggies with blogs and they chose ME!
DWB was started by Ping and Benson's humans. They started it in honor of their wonderful labradog, Charlie.
After he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, his sissy, Miss Opy
kept it running, but when she passed over the bridge their hearts were breaking so much that they could not keep DWB going and it was so sad for all of us.
But now Ping and Benson are in charge and DWB is back. It is totally like better than FB or Twitter or sometimes even blogging itself because everything is there forever for sure.
When you visit DWB, click on the PayPal button in the left hand margin and send a dollar or two, OK? Because it does cost some bags of cash for those guys to have the hosting and bandwidths and other digitals stuff required to bring you DWB.
Hey! Check out my large and sporting a few grey furs self! Handsome, eh?
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. My big foot is NOT an aerobic infection which does not surprise me in the least given that the only aerobics I do is head butting idiot Pea out of the way when he thinks he can get snuggles from Momma. But we still don't know what it is. I am going back to vet lady on Sunday for further consult.
