Social Pet Saturday: Thanks!

Hey everyone - happy weekend! I've got a few announcements to share plus some other fun things from around the web. First of all, I'd like to thank all of you for the kind words and well wishes about my job interviews that I had this past week. I still have not heard back from them which does worry me a little. Regardless of the outcome, I still appreciate everyone's support! So now, let's move on to this edition of Social Pet Saturday...




  • Congratulations to Shannon B. on winning a copy of the Castle In The Mist by Robert McCarty last week! If you missed our review of the book, you can check it out here
  • Shiner was featured as the "Posh Pooch of the Week" over at Ralph the Poodle's blog. If you haven't visited Ralph's blog before, stop by, say hello, and check out Shiner's feature! 
  • We were included on BoingyDog's list of Twitter Rockstars earlier last week. It's a pretty long list of Tweeps, most of which I'm already following. 
  • I read an article on Cats Around the Globe - "A thought about declawing your cat". I really wanted to share it with everyone here because it talks about what cat declawing is, its consequences, and some alternatives to declawing. 
  • Over at Oh My Shih Tzu, I read a really great article about pet safety CPR and first aid. It includes some really awesome tips for pet owners. 
  • Joker and Francesca from The Online Canine awarded us with the Versatile Blogger Award - thank you guys! We appreciate it very much! 

And don't forget that we have an awesome giveaway going on right now if you haven't entered yet. You can win a FREE 8"x10" Easy Canvas Print. Click here to read our review and enter to win! Good luck! 

I'll be a little busy this weekend, so please forgive me if I am not around so much!

    1. Looks like you found it today, but when I looked on BlogLovin I guess it has some old feeds on there... the button should take people to the correct feed though. Wish I could figure out how to take old feeds off of bloglovin...

  12. Thank you for sharing about the consequences about declawing. We hear there's fierce debate in the veterinary community about it still.

    And we're keeping our paws crossed that you get just the job you want that you'll absolutely LOVE.

    1. I think many vets don't like it, but are willing to perform the surgery. Perhaps is not good for them as far as keeping their job is concerned if they decline to do the declaws. Or maybe some feel like at least the cat will be cared for. I've worked with all types of vets, so I've seen many different points of views on it. I personally don't care for declawing but have assisted with the procedure before.

  15. Thoughts are still with you on the job! Hey I work part-time for an HR office, and I know it sometimes takes time (from an HR perspective)to get an offer out, so hang in there.

    The article on declawing is very informative. I was very surprised when I discovered how common it is to declaw cats in some countries.
