Thanks Blogville - We Had No Idea


Today is the day we have selected to say "thank you" to Blogville!


When we first heard of Blogville, we weren't totally sure what it was.  Once we found out, we were pretty sure that a person had to be a little bit nutty to even want to belong.  But for some reason, mom decided that it would be a good place for us to grow up.  Now that we have been here for a few years, we think it was a good place for our ancient mom to grow up too.

 We started  our bloggy when we were tiny puppy dogs.  We were only 2 weeks old and our eyes had just opened that day when we met our furever mom and dad.  Mom said her heart was bursting and she had to let some of it seep out so that was when she decided we'd all live in Blogville.  You see, the thing is, mom doesn't find it easy to let love seep out of her heart in a public way.

When we were 7 weeks old, me and Stanley moved in with mom and dad, into Blogville FUR real! In no time at all you welcomed us with open paws.  Over these past few years we have made more and more friend/furiends.  We have learned many things over this time but most important was to learn to care about each other!

We had no idea we would meet so many friends and come to care so deeply about YOU!  We had no idea that we would share in the pain of losing furiends to the Rainbow Bridge!  You made us happy, you made us laugh, we joined you and shed our tears with you when you had your hearts broken.  We crossed our paws for you when you needed it. And we know you would do the same for us.

When you entered our lives we had no idea what an impact you were going to make on us.  We never suspected that you would be part of our every day thoughts and discussions!  We never suspected that you would change us - for the better!

So we want to say thank you to Blogville.  Thank you for being so loving and caring.  Thank you for being a constant in our world.  Thank you for showing us that there are MANY, MANY good people in this world who don't hesitate a moment to reach out a hand or paw to another.

We love you Blogville.  Thank you for loving us back!

  17. That's so true, it changes your life when you live in blogville :o) I agree with you, it's amazing how much I learnt and specially the part to take care of each other was very hard sometimes. I remember the first friend I lost, it was Zack the all black and I was devastated... and I still feel the same, when bad things happen to one of my friends ... and that's a sign that I really love all my friends ...
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your fabulous furmily!

  41. You expressed it SO well. I didn't know that Blogville existed when I started my blog... but if I'd known, I might've also thought that wanting to be part of it was a little nutty! But, like you, I've learned what an amazing community it is. I am so thankful for having met you in Blogville. You two doodz and your parents make blogville a better place.
