We’ve Got Such Wonderful Friends!

Today, we thought we would talk about some of the wonderful friends that we have made from our blogging!

Our VERY FIRST friend that ever left us a comment was Koda’s Mom, Betty, from A Corgi in Southern California.
She has been a true friend and followed us from the beginning of our time here on Blogger! It was through her encouragement and help that we stuck with it those first weeks of not knowing anyone, etc. She has introduced us to several other friends, and is an inspiration to us all the time.

Of course, who doesn’t know Mango , Dozer , or Khyra? These anipals are wonderful to have as friends, and they are so helpful and uplifting too! You’ll almost always get a smile, though sometimes you’ll find a tear or two, in their blogs as they share and care about so many of their anipals! Mom has been working on pictures of Dozer and Mango (with permission) for the Fair. (Mango's pic wasn't quite done yet when this scan was taken...)

Another two of our long time followers is Classy Chassy from Expressly Corgi, and CorgiDogMama from Corgi Dog News. They have such interesting blogs with various animals, vintage items, creative ideas, and interesting info. They are quiet, soothing, peaceful places to visit... like sitting beside a mountain stream. Mom counts them as really good friends and, of course, they have corgis, too.

By the way, speaking of Corgi Blogs, Gibson’s Mom, Kelly, over at Corgi Butts
is putting together a Corgi Calendar that will feature Corgis with Blogs. She wants people to submit their best Corgi Pics if they are interested in being on the Calendar. Their blog sites will be mentioned and any profits will go to the Lakeshore Corgi Rescue.

Another of our very best friends is Sassy Sasha , and her Mom. Sasha is a Shih Tzu like another of my Mom's sister's dogs, Mia (pictured), only Sasha is nice and we don't get along well with Mia. You should go check out the wonderful unicorn story that Sasha wrote with the help of a bunch of her Dog Bloggin’ friends. It is totally awesome! Wonderful fantasy, love for other animals, adventure, and a great moral!

Sassy and her Mom got the group story idea from another wonderful new friend named Jan Mader. This fun lady has two blogs that are both wonderful to read. Animal Talk,
is about her horse, Tango, her dogs, and other animals that she knows and loves. Her other blog, Ignite to Write , is an awesome blog with lots of fun games for her readers to share in with their comments. “Try it… You’ll Like IT!!!”

Another blog you might like if you like to write poetry and/or short stories and want to post them someplace other than your own blog is at Maya's blog, The (W)riting Room. This young friend is very talented and wants to share her blog with other writers. She lives in Australia. Mom posts some of her poetry and drawings there sometimes.

We’ve got other awesome friends “across the pond,” too! Martha and Bailey Basset are great friends. We love taking the tours of Scotland that they host for us, and Clive the Autism Assistant Dog from Ireland inspires me to do MY best as a helper dog, as he cares for his "Little Man." Their blogs give us a chance to learn about their countries and people. Isn't blogging and finding friends around the world NEAT!

We've got another corgi friend named Benny who recently moved to California from Japan! We’ve got so many friends out there that there is no way to name you all, but we appreciate each and every one of you! Twix, Coco, Tank, Hawk, Cooper Creek Cardigans, Infrared Goggles (and her corgi, Teggy)… the list goes on and on!

We sniffed our way over to see Brutus, our newest blogging friend, today. He is a tough French Bulldog, and he has some neat rescue greyhound friends. He had a video of his ant hunting and so we are awarding him Dott’s Mighty Hunter Award
for ant killing. Congratulations, Mighty Hunter!

What a lovely post! We are so happy to be among your friends across the Pond. We will have to check out your other friends - well we know some of them but there are other blogs there that sound interesting that we don't know.
Have a great weekend - we know Brutus will be thrilled with his Award after his valiant efforts with the ant hunting!!

So many great pals! I agree. This blogging totally rocks. I love your picture of me. It looks like, ME!

We are happy to know you especially since momma has a soft spot for you little corgi dogs (she had one when she was a human pup).

Isn't it nice that folks can bond via cyber space just because they have cute little ol' short legged dogs...and then, it grows via common interests, and then friendships can form.
Life is so amazing sometimes, and even though the internet can cause trouble and be dangerous for opens up the world to others!
Nice's nice to be part of the gang!
