Pet Blogger Showcase 10/07/2017

Twice a month, Bear and I co-host a Pet Blogger Linky Party along with co-hosts PetFavesHeart Like A Dog, and Felines Opines. If you missed the last Pet Blogger Showcase, you can view it here: Pet Blogger Showcase 09/16/2017. To view all the past weeks of the Showcase that we co-hosted, click the link: Pet Blogger Showcase.

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.

The last Showcase had only four link-ups beyond us hosts (a great showing of felines ... YAY!!!) - so we're sharing them all. THANK YOU to everyone/everycat who linked up ... the Showcase is made better by each and every friend who joins: you ARE the Showcase!

ERin the Cat (Princess), adventures on the high seas, a mouse rebellion, and a kangaroo ... Talk Like a Pirate Day has never been so much fun (and this is only the FIRST half of the story ... we suggest reading the second half as well - the second part includes just a touch of romance too!!!).

Poor Dolly ... not only does she have SIX sisters ... but now Sister Seal and Brother Simon are demanding brushing time. Why should she share her brushing time?!? Ever tried to brush THREE cats at a time?!? Poor Dolly! Poor Mom!

*** Fly Free, Sweet Zoe - Animal Shelter Volunteer Life ***

If you're a regular to the Showcase, you've seen us highlight Animal Shelter Volunteer Life and PAWS every week. Unfortunately, this time, ASVL shared the loss of their beloved Zoe. This post is a beautiful tribute to her - I found myself wanting to hear more and more stories about this special girl. We all know the devastation of losing a furry partner - but lovely Zoe will always be loved and missed.

*** Pet Blogger Showcase and Selfies - 15andmeowing ***
Phoebe celebrates being chosen to feature by all four hosts in the last Showcase. Unfortunately, Phoebe also crossed the Rainbow Bridge soon thereafter. The loss we feel is immense ... the blogosphere a little darker without her light; Phoebe, we love and miss you!!

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
