Here at the start of a new year, as well as when the annual Pet Bloggers Challenge is ongoing, and even the Presidential State of the Union, it seems fitting to see where things are here on A Tail of Two Cardis.
You've probably noticed things seem a bit slow. There was a time I could be counted on to post several times a week. That winnowed down to just a couple, and now I am thrilled if I can still come up with Wilson's Wordless Wednesday! I'm not really sure why. If you recall, back in late July, I was laid off from my job. While that seems like it should have given me endless time to blog, I learned I didn't want to squander my new freedom in front of my PC! When not job hunting, I wanted to be outside, enjoying daylight, getting exercise (it was so wonderful not to sit all day, everyday!), and even doing long neglected household chores. While I still lugged my camera everywhere I went, I didn't use it very often. I think the very best part of these last six months has been all the extra time I could spend with the dogs. Wilson will soon be 13 and while that's not super old for a corgi, I do see the signs of old age. One thing's for sure, the dogs and I definitely got in better shape!
I didn't really want to run through the questions asked by the Pet Bloggers Challenge. I don't write this blog for the purpose of teaching about dogs or promoting dog related products. I do love writing my monthly Chewy.com review as it is a good challenge to come up with something fresh and hopefully interesting. They really do seem to be a great company so I am happy to help spread the word. The only true reason I blog is so I will have this long history of my day-to-day life with my dogs. Those memories can slip away so easily. With this blog I will be able to look back and remember specific days and special moments. In the agility world, we frequently remind ourselves to enjoy each and every time you step to the line with your dog. Love the moment, no matter how the run turns out, because you never know when it will be your very last run. That's what my blog is really all about....enjoying the moments, those silly little blocks of time when your dog does something to make you laugh, or licks your tears away on a bad day. I absolutely adore getting comments and knowing other people enjoy my blog (Thank you so much!), but in all honesty this blog is for me.
I have no concrete goals for 2016. I hope I can keep rolling forward, posting when I can. I don't want to stress over whether I have a post or not. It will just happen when it happens. I truly hope you all will keep visiting. I love all my invisible friends! When I started blogging I never would have guessed there was a friendship side to all of this, but certainly there is!
Enough blathering on, you don't come here for that.....This is what you come here for!!!!
There's a reason Cardigan Corgis are called clowns. With no prodding from me, Jimmy put on a show today! Enjoy!
