All we hear on the news is obesity, Obsesity, and OBESITY. Yes, it’s a problem. We mostly hear about its dangers for us and our children. But, it is also a big – pardon that choice of words – problem for our pets. If we do not feed and exercise them correctly, they will gain weight just as we do. That’s our topic for #PetRap this Sunday, July 14 – right before #blogchat – at 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. PT/8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET.
It’s the eternal debate. Cats vs. dogs. Are you a cat or a dog person? Sort of like are you are you a Beatles or a Stones person. Let’s have a catfight – or dogfight, if you prefer, this Sunday at #PetRap at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET. I expect some PASSION and some persuasive arguments on both sides. I’ll declare now that I am DEFINITELY a dog dude!
Pets and our kids is our #PetRap topic this Sunday – at our NEW TIME of 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. PT/8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET. We will lead in to the wonderful #blogchat that begins immediately afterward. My little boy poked our beloved Mazel in the eye and got a nip on his face as a consequence. The tiny scar is still there on his 19-year-old face. We saw it happen and we knew is was not our dog’s fault, but it raised the question of safety in our home vis-a-vis our dog and our son.
Everyone who has pets has had those times when their pet does something that simply makes you giggle. Call it a quirk; call it personality; call it whatever! It’s one of the many joys of having pets in your life. Let’s get together this Sunday, June 9 at noon – 1:00 p.m. PT/3:00 – 4:00 p.m. ET and share some of those funny pet quirks.
We’ve rescued four dogs. It’s a choice and sometimes a tough one to rescue an animal. There are many considerations. There is NO right or wrong. But, let’s discuss this option at our second #PetRap on Sunday, June 2 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. PT/3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET. Bring your stories.
AND, we’ll be announcing the two winners in last weeks Photo Contest! Vote for YOUR favorite in the comments section, below. Here are the finalists:
#PetRap is finally here! If you’re a pet-lover, like me, you’re slightly kooky, passionate, and loving. It goes with the territory. #PetRap begins this Sunday, May 26, 2013 at noon -1:00 p.m. PT/3:00 – 4:00 p.m. ET, with a favorite pet photo contest. Just for the fun of it. Bring your fav photo and we’ll have two winners. The prize for the winners is PDF copies of my two books, but the big WIN is the bragging rights. I am promising to create a community of pet lovers that will get together on lazy Sundays to have fun together. This is NOT going to be an activist community.
NOTE: I just discovered that there is an existing PetChat so we’re going to be #PetRap. Please note hashtag change!
All photos must be submitted DURING our first #PetRap hour on Sunday, May 26 between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. PT/3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET. The winners will be announced at next week’s #PetRap and their photos posted in next week’s #PetRap pre-chat post!
