PostHeaderIcon Wrapping Up the A to Z Challenge

The A-Z blogging challenge wrapped up last week. My main wrap-up post is at Ellie's Blank Book, but I also have a few thoughts to include here.

1. Because of the nature of this blog, it wasn't feasible to write and schedule the posts in advance. When featuring specific pets in dire need of help, there's no way to know ahead of time whether a certain pet will still be available for adoption a few days later.

2. The challenge is a fantastic way to get the word out about pets in need. It gives these wonderful pets much-needed exposure.

3. Living in Michigan isn't necessary to be able to help these pets. Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest all provide ways to help by simply spreading the word. I should probably add the appropriate buttons to make that easier for visitors.

4. I hope this blog inspires people to adopt, foster, and help pets in other ways, not just within Michigan, but worldwide.

5. I found some terrific new blogs to follow. Some of them, including George's Guinea Pig World, are even pet blogs!

I admire what you do, a pity I can't do anything to help as I live in the UK.
I sincerely hope you find homes for the animals. Good luck.

Yvonne.

I live in the UK too, but my daughter and her dogs live in Michigan. Over the years she has had several rescue dogs. I've just had an article published in the UK Dogs Monthly magazine about one of her dogs (not rescued)who suddenly went blind.

Thank you, Yvonne! I really appreciate your support.

Bob, I'm very sorry to hear that one of your daughter's dogs suddenly went blind. I'd never heard of that happening before.

Congratulation on finishing the challenge. During the challenge I didn't visit as many blogs as I would like to but, cross my heart, I'm visiting every single one with the reflection post! I am so glad my journey brought me here.

Evalina, This and that...
