What I am Doing This Week, Posting Fun Links – Artists for Hope, Generation Vet…

Monday, September 20th, 2010

I thought it would be fun to post links to some fun pet (and not pet) related things I have been reading or working on lately.  Check out as many as you have time for.  Add your own favorites in the comment section if you would like.   My Favorite Things seem very random when I write them out like this, but they make sense in my head!

♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♫ These are a few of my favorite things ♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♫

Artists for Hope You may remember me talking about this wonderful group here and in the Wuzzy Chronicles.  They just returned from another trip to Cazale, Haiti to visit the children and staff of The Real Hope for Haiti Rescue Center, and to continue their work with local Haitian artists.

Thank you Artists for Hope for the kind mention on your website! A veterinary blog and an artist/children’s welfare blog may seem like an odd combination, but in Real Life, it is a very natural fit!

Generation Vet has a thirteenth episode out.  I am still not over the fun of a veterinary comic strip.  It may seem strange to be such good friends with an imaginary veterinarian, but I LOVE Dr. Amanda Brown!

My Cat – My article on Omaha.net about Max the Cat is up.  He is THE best cat in the world.  If you and I are “real life” friends, you have probably met him, but if you have not, meet him here.

Next up on Omaha.net will be an article about dealing with pet loss.  As you know, I prefer writing about happy topics, but covering this subject is long overdue for me.  I think I have done it in a way that will be more helpful than depressing.  You will have to let me know when it comes out in a week or two.  Thank you Mom-Karen for the gentle nudging to address pet loss and grief.

Writing! I am LOVING working with Carefresh!  Still hoping to work with  My Favorite Dog and Cat Pet Food Company in the World and dvm360 (Here’s my Look At Me! blog post about twitter for veterinarians.  May be helpful for non-vets too.)

Being a Vet – I spent all last week at work (usually I work one day a week) and just loved it.  Wonderful staff, wonderful clients, wonderful patients.  This week I am back on Mom Duty (Haha, get it?  We are never off Mom Duty!) and have more time for writing.  And time for feeding Fuzzy Rat, who is still having vestibular (balance) issues.  I appreciate my pets providing me an endless supply of blogging material, but really, boring would be just fine!

Petchat and Dogtalk – One last fun link, in case you read this today…petchat and dogtalk are both tonight.  If you read this LATER than today, they are every Monday night!  Very fun, and I learn so much from other pet lovers.  They are both worth checking out!

My Small Tipsy Rat – I am going to go mix up some Critical Care and peanut butter, and spend some quality time with Fuzzy Rat.  Have a great week!

 

My Most Exciting News of the Spring! Partnering with Carefresh

MY MOST EXCITING NEWS OF THE SPRING!!

I am starting a writing assignment with Carefresh.  If you know me, you know I am rodent-obsessed and I LOVE Carefresh bedding!

I don’t know how to compare this to what normal people would get excited about…if you have analogies, let me know!  Amanda meeting Miley Cyrus…on a horse?  Abby getting a pet monkey?  Russ meeting Bob the Builder?  (Just kidding, Russ…sort of.)

I will keep you updated!  I am so excited!

My first assignment with CareFresh Complete is to give away a ton of pet food. Really. A literal ton. I love this job! : )

If you are with a Small Mammal Rescue Group, I will have a CASE of food sent to you!

If you have your own…

♥rabbit♥guinea pig♥chinchilla♥rat♥mouse♥gerbil♥hamster♥

let me know which and I will send you a voucher for a free 2# bag of Carefresh Complete food!

Woo!  Fun!  But I don’t know one thousand people, so tell your friends too.
