What Do You Want in a Blog?

When you are reading blogs, what are you looking for? I have never before "recommended" a blog, but there is one that I want you to check out. It has a little something for everyone.

Do you love dogs? This is S, a wonderful dog. More about him later.



How about a Lab Trifecta, S, R, and K?



K loves to romp and follow the trail biking.




Is it wildflowers and birds you seek? How are these examples?









Oh, you are more interested in wildlife in its natural environment? How about these?











Perhaps you are drawn to scenic mountains, the Rockies to be exact. You will find them here as well.













And if you have the adventuring spirit in your blood, this blog will take you climbing on trails you never imagined. KB has a bike for every kind of weather.


So whatever you want in a blog, like Ragu...it's in there.
All of these photographs were taken without permission from KB, whose blog is Romping and Rolling in the Rockies. I wanted you to have a glimpse of the blog and to encourage you to drop by. [KB, I do hope you don't mind.]
----------There is a commanding reason beyond the fact that it is a great blog. You see, S, the yellow lab in the first picture has terminal cancer. His time with KB, her husband and the other two labs is limited. I think it would be helpful for her to have comforting words from the blog world as she and her husband face this difficult journey with its impossibly difficult decisions. I have tears in my eyes as I write this. As you know, we have two Golden Retrievers and the thought of losing one is too hard to imagine. That is how KB feels right now, so I think she could use a little extra support.
If you are so inclined, visit KB's blog. I think you will be glad you did.

I will be the first to confess that I like all of your photographs and will go see romping and rolling in a minute.

Do you remember when people lived and died at home and endured wakes? I wrote about it here. http://bing-it.blogspot.com/

Hi Carolyn, That is so nice of you to recommend a friend's blog to all of us. We all have blogs that we enjoy more than others. One that I like is Arkansas Patti found HERE. That lady should be a writer. If you like to read about other's lives, check Patti out!!!

Your Golden Girls post was great as usual. They are just so gorgeous.

Hugs,
Betsy

How nice of you. I'll definitely go by. It's hard to put into words.... a faithful companion, always there, knows your every move, you know theirs, you know and they know that nothing else is more special than what they've got. Waiting at the door while the other's waiting to get home to see them again to exchange that gift - a gift that for some people is more powerful than love... it goes beyond "special bond"... it's something nothing else can match or come close to matching. Everyone who's felt it knows it and knows the feeling when faced with thoughts of losing it. If everyone could feel the benefits from things like the time you took to try to channel comfort... (all I can think of)... "and I think to myself, what a wonderful world" I look forward to seeing the blog!
