Fostering Ginger

I met Lisa Begin Kruysman through the Dog Writer's Association of America. She is an accomplished, award-winning writer who has written five books, 220 blog posts, and manages the Facebook page for National Dog Week. I am excited to welcome her as my first guest contributor as she shares her experience fostering a special dog named Ginger.

I'm A Dog, I'm Really A Dog - Maybe

Ruby contemplates being nominated for a BlogPaws Nose to Nose award for best dog blog
Best Dog Blog Finalist - Who Me?
We have always been a feline centric home. Although we are multi-species (dog, cat, and rabbit), the cats definitely rule the roost. Ruby sometimes acts like a cat and Lulu, our rabbit, like a dog. We are a confused bunch - except for the cats who are always proudly themselves.

And this is why I was so shocked (like fall-off-my-chair shocked) to be among the finalists for a BlogPaws Nose-Nose Award for Best Dog Blog. While the other three amazing dog blog finalists are off doing extraordinary things like hiking, trekking, and traveling to the far corners of the world, Ruby is just trying to figure out what it means to be a dog, and whether or not she might really be part cat.

We are kind of cat bloggers disguised as dog bloggers or some weird hybrid of the two. All last week I was waiting for someone to pop out and be like "oops, we made a mistake - no Best Dog Blog nomination for you"

Buy a Bag, Give a Meal™

A brown tabby enjoys a meal from PetSmart's Buy a Bag, Give a Meal

We are a rescue family - one dog, two cats, and a rabbit, all rescues. I also have a full time job, a child, and of course, a blog. Although I do volunteer with several local rescue organizations, I wish I had more time to serve and money to donate. Unfortunately, I am always short on both! But thanks to PetSmart® and their new Buy a Bag, Give a Mealit just got easier to help more animals in need!
