Twofer!!

This is a big day for us. It's our blogaversary. Three years ago today, on March 18, 2008, we did our first ever blog post. It was titled 'Starting Point' and I don't think anyone but Rob read it. There were no pictures because I didn't know how to add pictures.
I had never planned to write a blog, but our friend Dr Nicki kept urging me to start one. I kept stalling, but every time I went into the clinic, she'd ask when I was going to start. Finally, one day she handed me a piece of paper and said "Here's the title of your blog and your first topic." I think I still waited a couple days, then late one evening I started.

I though I might have enough to say for a week of blog posts, but here I am three years later and today is also our 600th post. I can't believe I've been this chatty and what's even crazier is that I now actually have readers. That first year Rob and Dr Nicki were almost the only ones who read my blog. Then I joined Dogs on Thursday and met a lot of people with similar interests, dogs, knitting, reading, etc. Suddenly I was communicating with others and actually made some friends.

I enjoy blogging. It serves as my journal with pictures and it lets me stay in touch with some really super people who I've come to care about. I know their husband's names and all about their dogs and cats and I share their joys and their sorrows. It's a special little community.
We've had lots of fun joining swaps and giveaways and contests. We've stayed on top of events that we might have otherwise missed out on. We were overwhelmed at Christmas with the cards and messages that out pooches received. Thank you to all of you who read our blog and leave comments and send emails. We think the world of you and we're so glad we met all of you.
 Believe it or not, I have more to say and these dogs like all the attention they get from "their blog", so I guess we'll keep posting. We hope you keep coming back for more.
