I know people give their dogs credit for knowing amazing things. But Honey does not know she’s the star of her own blog.
If I say “Something Wagging This Way Comes” to her, she stares blankly.
She has no idea why I keep taking her picture.
And most of all, she can’t figure out why I wake up so early to type on the computer most mornings.
Despite her not knowing anything about it, however, my dog loves and hates her blog.
Honey loves her blog because she occasionally gets yummies in the mail when I do a review.
Honey hates her blog because every minute I’m working on it, I’m not petting her, playing with her, or taking her for a walk.
Honey hates her blog because I keep taking pictures of her.
Honey loves her blog because writing about our relationship keeps me thinking about ways I can make it even better.
Honey hates her blog because it inspires me to try weird experiments with her when she’d rather be napping.
Honey loves her blog because it has introduced her to hundreds of other pet bloggers. Some of them have even visited our home.
Honey hates her blog because you can’t eat it, chase it, or roll around on it. And every dog knows those are the signs of a really good thing.
I wrote my thousandth post several months ago (Does Your Dog Love You As Much As You Love Your Dog?) and I still have a six page list of other things I want to write about. Not to mention the fresh topics that come up just living with Honey or reading other dog blogs.
So whether Honey likes it or not, I still have a few things to say.
Maybe to make her feel better, I’ll find a way to print a blog post on a cookie.
Your Turn: If you’re a blogger, do you think your dog has an opinion about your blog? If you aren’t, are you ever tempted to write about your dog?
