Pet Blogger Showcase 08/05/2017

Twice a month, Bear and I co-host a Pet Blogger Linky Party along with co-hosts PetFavesHeart Like A Dog, and Felines Opines. We didn't participate in the last Linky Party on 07/15/2017, but to view our past weeks as a co-host ... Pet Blogger Showcase 10/01/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 10/15/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 11/05/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 11/19/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 12/03/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 01/07/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 01/21/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 02/04/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 02/18/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 03/04/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 03/18/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 04/01/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 04/15/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 05/06/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 06/03/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 06/17/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 07/01/2017.

Why do Bear and I like blog hops and linky parties? 
  • We've met so many incredible new friends we'd never find otherwise. For the majority of blogs Bear and I visit on a regular basis, probably eighty percent of them or more we found through participating in blog hops.
  • With the variety of blogs that participate, there's so much to learn for those of us who can never know enough. Not to mention that there are a lot of touching, fascinating, or otherwise unique stories to be told outside of one's "niche."
  • They are great ways to build relationships within the blogging community. When Momma recently went through a tough time emotionally, our blogging friends were our best supports. So building relationships with other bloggers isn't just about increasing readership, but also connecting in meaningful ways that can often be lost behind a computer screen.
If you join our Party, please link to a specific post from your blog instead of to your blog's homepage. Since each co-host chooses three posts from the last Party to feature each week - you increase your chances of being chosen by giving us a specific post and not the more general homepage.

To be fair and keep with the tradition of the Linky Party hosts, even though we didn't participate in the last Showcasewe read all the posts and chose our three favorite link ups from the last Showcase anyway.  

*** Top 7 Questions To Ask A Breeder When Buying A Big Puppy - Big Dog Mom ***
As a cat person and a person who chooses rescues over breeds, I have very little knowledge of what adopting a dog from a breeder involves. This post does a fantastic job of explaining the questions to ask a breeder - and why asking those questions are important.

*** Sister Saturday with Sascha: What I Did On My Summer Vacation - Brian's Home Blog ***
We love all the kitties of Brian's Home Blog, but Sister Sascha captured our hearts, though we can't exactly explain why. Momma asked Brian's Dad question after question about her at the BlogPaws Conference; Momma was sure Sascha and Seal would be best friends after reading about their games of patty-paw under the door when the kittens were still isolated from the rest of the house-kitties. One thing about Sascha?!? She's got a gloriously thick and floofy coat - so Summer means it's time for her lion cut! Vacation? Not so much. 

*** Phoebe’s Selfie Sunday - 15andmeowing ***
Phoebe always cracks us up with her wit and (should be trademarked) catitude. She loves her Grammie, Party Mix (the FISHY flavor ... NOT the cheese flavor), and putting her Mom in her place (this time with a story about her Grammie's purse and a leaning cat tree). Why? Because she can. 

Wait! Wait! One more!!! We're counting this as a chosen ORGANIZATION ... though the blog itself is amazing and WELL WORTH your visit. For as long as I cohost, I will praise and raise awareness for PAWS, an incredible rescue in Norwalk, Connecticut that I've come to admire and wholeheartedly support. We LOVE Animal Shelter Volunteer Life because of their upbeat attitude and because they do a phenomenal job of sharing this particular rescue - and the cats available for adoption there. PAWS offers a lot of great programs including a "pension plan" for senior pets up for adoption. We encourage our readers to visit these two blogs, check out the amazing animals up for adoption on PAWS' website, and support rescue efforts at PAWS and locally.

About the Pet Blogger Showcase

Twice a month, On the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, you have the chance to link up one of your blog posts to the linky party link-up. Then visit 3 other blogs that joined the party and leave a meaningful comment. Feel free to share with your followers on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. Then each week the hosts will feature their favorite 3 posts from the previous Linky Party on the new party post.

Pet Blogger Showcase Rules

1.    Share a pet specific post, past or present, from your blog in the linky below. Family friendly posts only. (We love reading about other topics and niches, but posts that are not pet related will be deleted this includes any posts that don’t mention pets even if they are on a pet blog or if the post could pertain to pets.)
2.    Spread the Love! Leave a quality comment(more than just a few words) on at least 3 other posts from the linky party. Tell them why you love their post, encourage them, share on social media.
3.    Check back for the next linky party to see if you are featured on one of the hosts’ blogs.

*Note: By adding your post to the linky party you are giving the hosts permission to use an image from your post if your post will be a featured post on their blog to help encourage people to click through to your post. The image may be used individually or as a collage.

ALSO ... please link to a specific post from your blog instead of to your blog's homepage. Since each co-host chooses three posts from the last Party to feature each week - you increase your chances of being chosen by giving us a specific post and not the more general homepage.

That’s it! No need to RSVP. No need to bring a covered dish. No need to add the linky to your post. No need to include a button. Just come join the party and PAWTY ON
