Revving Back Up!

Poor neglected blog! But that's all about to change. The Confessions of an Animal Junkie blog is participating in a 2-month blog tour celebrating rescues, rescue groups and friends of rescues -- and it starts this week!

We'll have a guest post tomorrow from a long-time friend/first-time guest poster; a second blog-tour-related post on Thursday from me; and yes, finally, the Vet Tech Tales Friday feature starts back up this Friday, with a few additional catch-up Tales that will be posted over the next few weeks on Wednesdays as well.

I <3 Dogs Blog Tour is hosted by the small but dedicated Pawsibilities Are Endless rescue organization. You've read a number of guest posts here by one of their principals, Landra Graf. There will be prizes and challenges and lots of awareness-building over the coming weeks. In fact, Animal Junkie is sponsoring a donation match where you can turn even a $1 donation for some very deserving dogs into $2.

And for anyone who would like a free copy of Vet Tech Tales: Volume 1 - The Early Years, just leave a comment on any post between now and the end of the blog tour, specify whether you'd like a Kindle-compatible copy or a PDF, leave your email addy (use a format like "yourname at ISP dot com" to keep the spambots at bay!) or email me at phoenixsullivan at yahoo dot com if you'd rather not publicize your email at all, and I'll send you a copy asap.

If you don't have a blog but you'd like to tell others about a favorite rescue org or discuss any of the other tour themes, I'll be happy to post your contribution right here! All I need is the text in either an email or a Word doc (I have Word 2010 for the PC). We love pictures, too -- just attach those separately. If you send them as jpgs or pngs, I can do all the resizing and compression needed, so no worries there.

Here are the weekly themes:
  • Week 1 (2/20-2/26) - Favorite animal organization/rescue
  • Week 2 (2/27-3/4) - Favorite pet story (Tell us about your favorite pet! Doesn’t have to be a dog)
  • Week 3 (3/5-3/11) - Favorite animal-related book, movie, song, etc.
  • Week 4 (3/12-3/18) - What you know about dog rescues/organizations
  • Week 5 (3/19-3/25) - The gorgeous, the active, and the unique. Tell us your favorite dog breed.
  • Week 6 (3/26-4/1) - Favorite Dog/Pet Stores in your area.
  • Week 7 (4/2-4/8) - Favorite dog parks and dog-friendly attractions in your area.
  • Week 8 (4/9-4/15) - If I had a dream… What would you do for rescue dogs if you could?
