We recently wrote our 500th blog. It was an Ask Aunt Foley blog and that seemed fitting. We have learned lots of things while writing our blogs but we have whittled them down to a top ten. So now we present the top ten things we have learned while writing our blogs.
10. If you are going to use the words Mommy, big, and ass in the same blog make sure they are several paragraphs apart.
The chance of someone stumbling upon your blog on Stumbleupon is the
same as you stumbling on the kitty who took the golden vick.
While social networks that are based on dogs have the best people, not
all the people are the best. Hitler loved his dogs. If he was alive
today he might be blogging about his dogs. Rule number one of dog
social networking: Do not befriend Hitler. You will know it is him
because his blog is named Mein Comef.
We post on dog sites and on our blog page and we average around 150
hits from all these posts combined. But when we wrote a blog about why
dogs should have a beach of their own, featuring pictures of fat people
in bathing suits we got more than 2,000 hits above our average, so, no
matter what you are blogging about, include a picture of a fat guy at
There are a number of great sites in the dog social network web that
produce incredible treats and sometimes Kol’s Notes if you mention how
great their treats are Kerri’s Kookies they will send you some treats
Iluvyourpet. The key is that you don’t want to just do a blog about how
Ralph’s Bakery these treats are. You have to be subtle. You can’t
Kerri’s Kookies look like you’re begging. So just Iluvyourpet drop
their names in your blogs and they will know you are sincere and keep
Ralph’s Bakery your tummy full. P.S. Kol’s Notes.
If you happen to come up with a clever term for dogs like Lollipops or
for our bodily function you need to copyright that. While it is very
good for our little egos ao see the words catch on and other people use
them it doesn’t put any more kibbles in our bowl.
Leave them laughing or leave them crying but if you leave them angry
then your in box is going to be filled with hate for a lot of weeks.
ABMF and NFLF. The first is Always Be Making Friends. The second is
Never Forget Lost Friends. You always want to be making friends
because, since I began writing this blog 500 postings ago I have lost
dozens of friends. So each day I try to make at least one friend
because you can never have too many. And new friends can help you get
past the pain of losing old ones. And never forget a lost friend
because if you never forget them, and write about them, and post
pictures about them, then they will live in, in our hearts, minds, and
on the Internet, forever.
There is no such thing as a bad dog, only bad dog owners. And there
is no such thing as an ugly dog, but I’ve seen pictures of some of dog
We dogs are the master race. Our humans feed us, pick up our vick,
take care of our medical needs, buy us toys, and provide for our every
need. Obviously, if one species does that for another, they have them
enslaved. But we are generous of spirit and heart. While we can’t pay
our humans, or provide for them, we can be their angels, make them
smile, give them unconditional love, make them feel like they are the
most special people in the entire world, because they are. So, from the
day you walk into your forever home, to the day you go to the Bridge,
never stop loving your parents and let them know they are loved.
Because that’s why we’re here. To be their angels on Earth, because
they are ours.
