Shame on me!


Can you believe that I missed my own Blogiversary?
Yep, it was November 18th! That day marked one whole year that I have been blogging!

I thought it would be nice to think back on some of my favorite posts for Flashback Friday, and parade some of my favorite photos for the Pet Parade.

My 1 year Blogiversary is pretty huge for me. Heck, when I started this blog, I had never expected it to grow into what it has. All I wanted to do is share life with my huskies.
But it grew! I gained followers, I discovered the BlogPaws community, and have had amazing friendships blossom. Soon enough I was getting sponsored posts, and having products mailed to me from companies who wanted me to review them. I wasn't expecting any of this.


I quickly began to take my blog seriously, while having fun with it at the same time.
There are so many of you who have been here with me since the very beginning.
You have stuck with me through SO SO many changes I have done on this blog.
You have stuck with me through my own learning experiences.
You have all watched me grow as a blogger and a pet paw-rent.

For that, I would like to say a HUGE thank you!
If it wasn't for you all being here, I would have never kept on with this.

Now that all of the mushiness is out of the way, when I think back, there are a few posts that really stick out for me.

I love being able to share history about my beloved Siberian Husky breed. I especially loved my post about Siberian Huskies being used to herd reindeer by the Chukchi people way back when.


Another one of my fav posts was one where I shared the fact that Siberian Huskies used to be babysitters, again way back when, with the Chukchi people.
I then went into huskies and children, and how strong of a bond they form together.



I had a ton of fun sharing each of my huskies birthdays with you :
Koda turned 1 year old in April


Lexus turned 2 years old in July


Mika turned 5 in June


Those are just a few of the most memorable flashback posts in my year of blogging.

There have been ups and down this last year as well.
The ups include things like reading about some of my blogging pals adding new members to their family, whether it be new fur babies, or babies of the human kind. I have enjoyed watching your families grow, and celebrating their birthdays with all of you.

The downs include things like going through the pain that my blogging friends are feeling when they have lost one of their fur-babies. Also watching and reading about pets who are going through hard times. I feel that pain as I read these posts, and always send all my love to the families.

It has been a journey, a journey I have enjoyed, and i'm here to tell you, I am not going anywhere!
I love you all, and thanks so much for standing by me!

    Interesting post -- I never knew that Huskies were used originally as herding dogs. That's pretty cool.
