Well, if you are reading this post, you can clearly see what’s new around Wags & Whiskers! Our blog has been completely redesigned…and we are loving it. I could not be happier with how it turned out (the website is next on the agenda.) The process of re-vamping all our social media has taught me one important thing – I am MUCH better with dogs than I am with computers. My word! That high school computer science classes I took just didn’t cut the mustard.
Enter Thidaa. Thidaa is an amazing artist and architect and (thank the Lord above) a close, talented friend of mine. She spent her free time “helping” (a.k.a. doing everything for) me to get this blog looking sharp. If you want to see her art – check out her website. If you want to know more about the happenings around London (especially anything to do with architecture) check out her blog. Better yet – leave a comment on this post and let us know what you think of the digital makeover.
But who are we kidding? We know you are really just here for the DOGS!
Lisa, a fab W&W blog reader, sent us this picture of her dachshund, Milo. If you couldn’t tell…he’s a BIG fan of tennis (balls!)
One of our W&W clients texted me this adorable picture of Tillie. What a model!
Victoria emailed us this picture of her Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy (can you believe this big girl is a PUPPY!?!), Sadie. She loves loves LOVES to walk. (We knew there was a reason we loved her…other than her good looks!)
Happy middle-of-the-week in the middle-of-MAY!
As you may have noticed, the blog has (once again!) gotten a face lift. It is so hard to get the visual components to match the feeling of the blog….or the feeling I want it to have. I want it to be fun and inviting without being overly cutesy. I want it to professional without being cold. I want it to perfectly reflect me and the content I write…and I just don’t know how to make that happen! With every evolution, I think I’m getting just a little bit closer. Please let me know what you think. (Feel free to post links to blogs you love – dog or otherwise – to give me ideas!)
Of course, the new layout has a great whisker shot (Get it?! Wags & WHISKERS) which had me browsing through my seemingly endless collection of dog pictures. So – straight out of the vault – what you’ve all been waiting for – the cuteness overload we like to call WAGS & WHISKERS WEDNESDAY!
Maude – One of my FAVORITE dogs from the dog daycare I worked at in Brooklyn. She didn’t come everyday, but I knew her schedule and would look forward to seeing that adorable face.
Brennan – First dog to break my heart by moving away. I got him through his puppyhood…and then his dad decided to up and move to Colorado. I think he might have been THE cutest puppy to ever exist.
Clarice – One of the dogs I’ve rescued. She was in my life for such a short amount of time….but she truly touched my heart!
…and of course BUFFY!
Happy first Wednesday of 2012!
With they year still fresh and new, we all have resolutions on the brain. (See how you can enlist the help of your dog to reach your new year’s goals.) I have quite a few resolutions myself…one of them includes making the Wags & Whiskers blog the most amazing blog it can be! This means doing more research, getting more educated, giving away more goodies, spending more time with animals (is that possible?!), and basically giving you MORE of what you want to read. That being said, I would welcome suggestions on topics or other blogs I could look too for inspiration. I also would love for this blog to be more of a conversation…in other words, I would love to hear from you!
Now that I’ve used the word “more” far too many times, let’s move on to what we all really need in 2012…MORE puppy pics!
Happy New Year!
Angel - one of the sweetest dogs I have EVER met!
Jack - it took me many tries to get a pic of this guy sitting still. The energy on this one!
