Mother Nature and Tuesdays Tails | Monday Mischief

Jeffie keeps a grim eye on the freezing rain and ice.
When I began this blog post temperatures were in the 60's and I'd just come in from playing with the dogs.   As I finish this post, it is 32 degrees and Mother Nature has been flinging freezing rain down from the heavens for several hours.

I call that mischief.   If I lose electrical power, it's major mischief.

Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie agree.  They're very depressed with this weather.  The past couple of days they'd been tricked to believe it was spring.  When they went outside a few minutes ago they found it hard to get traction with all the ice and they immediately turned around and came back in.

After toweling off the dogs, I'm back to my "original mischief."   

And this mischief is mine.  All mine. 

Where is this place?  I need a consultation!

I agreed to co-host the Tuesday's Tails blog hop and new Facebook page.  Just what I needed:  something more to do!  (Laugh with me, please.)

Actually, Lisa at DogsnPawz and the founder of Tuesday's Tails blog hop makes it easy.  Since I've been featuring adoptable dogs here on my blog since 2008, there really was no reason to say no.

Tuesday's Tails is the blog hop that promotes adoption of pets from animal shelters and rescues.  A fresh hop linky is available every Tuesday.  However, participants can post any day of the week.   I almost always post my adoptable dogs on Sunday, then when Tuesday rolls around, I link up to the hop.

If you already promote pet adoption on your blog, please link up to the hop.  Though targeted at adoptable pets, we also welcome any blog posts regarding pet adoption, rescue organizations, and adoption events.

Blog hop participant's posts will be shared on our Facebook page, as well as other information related to pet adoption.

Lisa and I firmly believe that social media can move mountains to help pets find loving forever homes.  Several pets featured on the Tuesday's Tails hops have done just that.

You don't want to write about adoptable pets?  Then, how about giving the Tuesday's Tails Facebook page a "like?"   How about stopping by the hop once in awhile and sharing participants posts via social media?

Lisa and I would like to see this blog hop grow.  Not for ourselves.  For the pets like Carley.  I featured her yesterday and a year ago.  She's 6 years old and has spent her whole life in a no-kill animal shelter.  

There are so many wonderful pets like Carley that deserve homes.  

Please, give us a hand.  Say yes

  2. those huge temperature changes are the just start feeling warm and wham - back to cold again.

  3. Congrats on the new gig Sue!! I've already shared Carly.

  4. I agree! The weather has been up to way too much mischief!

  5. We had the nasty ice here yesterday, too. Wicked stuff in mid-March. I'll share Carly with my FaceCrack friends. We just adopted a rescue pup, so we're full up for now.

  6. I sure hope your summer comes soon. We don't usually post about adoptable dogs, but I did go over and like your page, so hopefully that will help some.

  7. Congratulations Madam Co-Host! I will go over to facebook in a bit and like the Tuesdays Tails page!
    Happy St. Paddy's Day.

  8. We have the weirdest weather too, ice rain this morning. Congrats on your new position. Posting about homeless pets is something my blog just doesn't do. Everyone has their thing, but that is not ours which does not mean we don't support it. I will check out the new fb page and give it a like, though.

  9. I commented on FB on Carly. Yes, I will certainly visit and share when I have something pertinent. I'll be glad to like your page.

  10. I love the adoptable pets blog hop, we'll stop by and share Carly's info and keep my paws crossed she finds her forever home!

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  11. That is so nice of you to Co-Host and I'm glad you are. The weather is doing some crappy mischief, but I must say that ice photo is very cool. Have a great day and thank you for my ecard! :)

  12. Best of luck co-hosting the hop. We are finally supposed to be in the 40's today but with heavy day we will have a nice day. :)


Go ahead... bark at us!
