Over the summer, the amount of content that is delivered to me via Google Reader has tripled. Maybe quadrupled. Pretty scientific, huh? It’s an assortment of reflections, photos, recipes, tutorials, news. Basically, it’s as spastic and eclectic as I am.
There are a handful of blogs that when something new from them pops up in my reader, I get giddy. One of them is a little blog called Two Pitties In the City. If you know me in real life, you know I am an unabashed pit bull lover and advocate. Two Pitties is about, well, two large (and can I say adorable?), “pit bull” type dogs called Ms. M and Mr. B. The posts encompass a variety of topics: having large dogs in a very urban environment (ie — small living spaces with no yards), overcoming breed discrimination, the sites, sound and smells they encounter during their walks in west Chicago and more. Mr. B even takes photos that he shares with his readers. It’s light, entertaining and informative reading.
So if you’re looking for something new to read on the interwebs, I can’t recommend Two Pitties In the City enough.
J, the pooches and I are heading back to Ohio this weekend. Oh joy! The drive between Toledo and Chicago could quite possibly be the most boring. drive. ever. I am pretty sure I could do it with my eyes closed at this point. Anyhoo, the reason for this weekend’s travels is my sister-in-law’s baby shower. That’s right, I am going to be an aunt. Let me rephrase that. I am going to be an aunt to a human nephew. I already have two canine nephews that I spoil rotten.
Shower gifts have already been purchased but that hasn’t stopped me from (internet) window shopping. And even though this has a subtle “girly” feel to it, today we like:
How adorable is that? Etsy seller JAustinRyan has a whole collection of paintings featuring some of the most adorable renditions of a whole assortment of fauna. Head on over to her blog, J.AustinRyan, and learn more about Hawk the Suburban Dog and his friends.
Before we go any further, I’d like to introduce you to two very important contributors to this blog. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Sirius and Violet the Beagle. These two little monsters keep my life interesting to say the least. It is probably obvious now what exactly inspired the name of this experiment/project/moment of insanity. Anyhoo, these two are more than likely to pop in a post every now and then so watch out. I promise, they don’t bite.
