Old Dog, Old Cat & Being Water-Blogged

If you’ve read this blog you’ll realize I am not the world’s most faithful blogger. It’s not that I don’t write–I’m at the keyboard 8 to 12 hours a day, creating columns, articles, radio scripts and more. So by the time I get around to “blogging” I’m drowning from being submerged in words. Guess you could call me “water blogged.” 

Okay, that’s a stretch. Please don’t smack me. I’m feeling punchy, having just spent five hours with my writing partner working on a script. (Oh, there’s a  blog in the future on that topic!). And this past weekend, I wrote no fewer than a  dozen blog entries!  Yep, I actually created content for my first ever blog “tour.”

What is a blog tour? As best  I can tell, this “virtual tour” allows a guest to visit and provide content to several other blogs, without ever leaving the house (or asking the cat to  get off your lap). Readers from all over the world can attend, too, at their leisure to read, comment, and often partake in contests that garner all sorts of prizes.

November is NATIONAL ADOPT A SENIOR SHELTER PET MONTH. It so happens that I’ve recently updated and released second editions of my books COMPLETE CARE FOR YOUR AGING CAT and COMPLETE CARE FOR YOUR AGING DOG. I may be water-blogged, but the synapsis made the  connection that a blog tour using the books’ content might encourage folks to take a chance and adopt a senior pet. By reading some of the blogs with book excerpts, perhaps owners will learn that caring for old fogie pets isn’t as daunting as they think, and in fact offers great rewards. So here’s the schedule–these blog hosts are fantastic writers and caring pet people, so please visit them often–and especially on my tour stop. Meanwhile, pet your furry wonders for me and I hope to “see” you along the way!
