To Blog or Not to Blog...That, is the Question...

Tuesday, May 29, 2007

Hi Everydoggie! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was really great... a lot of park time and napping with my Mom...what could be better than that?!?!?

I really don't have much to report, but was very inspired by Tadpole's story this morning about why he and his girl blog. I hadn't really thought about it until I read Tad's story so I asked my Mom why and here's what she told me...

One day Mom was surfing around on some BT sites (probably doing it at work, instead of doing what she was supposed to be doing) and found Martha's blog. She thought Martha was really funny and that the pictures of her and Stewie and the hounds were pawsome. From Martha's blog, she found Ike's blog. Well, you guys already know how I feel about Ike. On Ike's blog, she saw all these other doggies had blogs the 'dales, the wirehairs, the pugs, the corgador's and the tadpole's. Well, Mom was just hooked. She sat me down and told me all about it.

I was intrigued, but thought, 'What do I have to say that hasn't already been said?'. 'What can I contribute to the blogsphere?' 'Am I good enough, smart enough and gosh darnit, will doggies like me?'. So I pondered...not knowing that my Mom was already setting me up a blog, gathering all these pictures and signing up with DWB. I had no idea! Sneaky Mom (I wonder what else she does and neglects to tell me about, hmmm). Then on my birthday she told me what she did...and well, the rest is history.

So that's the story. Not as inspiring as Tad's, of course. What's been the bestest about this whole blogging adventure is all the great friends I've made...I just love reading all about everydoggie....and I hope you feel the same about me too!

Now, back to bloggy business. Here are some random pictures my Mom took on her new cellphone. Unfortunately, she was too slow to catch me doing my little 'handstand maneuver' since you guys seem to want proof of my acrobatic peeing style.

Time to Nap...TTFN

Oohhh, girl, I could totally go for some sunbathing right about now. We should lay out together with a couple of margaritas (I don't know what they are but my mom likes them) by the pool one day.

Oh, and my blogging story is much like yours. My mom was searching for pug stuff and came across Shelby's blog and decided to start one for me, too! I was only 2 months old, actually, so if you look back to my first posts it's pretty funny!

Oh, your mom needs to get faster so she can get a photo opt of the handstand pee! I really want to see this. Thanks for compliments to my pup pictures and my favicon!!!


wally said... 1:46 PM

I think your story is a good one. We dogs serve a very important purpose of providing new and creative ways for our ma apes to avoid doing work!

We're in debt to Martha and Ike for sucking you in to the dogbloggin' world!

Hi Ruby,

Did you know your sister Sophia also lifts her leg to peee? Ask Mom if it is a Boston trait.

Jackson's J1 and J2 said... 8:49 AM

Hey Ruby, I'm always fascinated to hear why other dogs started blogging. J1 started mine because I was ill and she wanted lots of photos and stuff. Then I started to get better and it was too late, we'd been sucked into the world of blogging! J x
