This is Me!
Hi everyone I just wanted to start a blog of some of the dog stories I’ve experienced as a dog owner, foster of rescue dogs and the rescue dog I adopted myself.
Funny stories, sad stories but everything dog related.
Every breed will be welcome, pedigree or mixed, it doesn’t matter as long as they have waggy tails!
There will be informative content too, including health and behavior issues and all about the process of rescuing a dog or buying a puppy from a breeder.
I don’t want to bore you but…
It’s been a few weeks and I’ve met some amazing people from this blog. I first thought it would just be a good way to record thoughts and events because my memory is dreadful. But then, people started interacting with me and it felt really good so it’s about time I stopped hiding under the WaggyTales blog name and talk a little about myself.
I worked for the NHS until my glass back and recurring shingles decided to rear its head. I then sold crafts online with my sister and still really enjoy anything creative. I am an avid reader and have a few ebooks self-published on Amazon, they are small poem collections. I have just started doing book reviews which I love.
I love all dogs so much. I fostered many rescue dogs and have two dogs myself one of which is an abandoned ex-stud dog. We recently lost our dog called Alfie which is why I am here really. I poured my feelings out in a poem and just started writing to take my mind off the awful grief that filled my existence.
I am quite introverted but a really good listener.
My main fear is that I am not ‘enough’ and I bore people. So, for that reason, I am going to go now, but I’ll be back with more……….
November 2018 (Update)
It’s been so long since I wrote in this post so I thought I would give a little update. We now have a new member to the Waggy Tales family…a Goldendoodle called Luca and he has just had his first birthday. He features on quite a few blog posts and you won’t believe how much he has grown in just a year.
I have been doing more work on the ‘Tales’ side of things ie Book Reviews. Reading has always been a passion and I have joined many Blog Tours to spread the word of new and exciting publications.
These are my NetGalley badges, I don’t add them to my book review posts but I will if I ever achieve the magical 80 %, that will be my New Year’s Resolution!
At the start of the year, I partnered with a few companies and added affiliate links to my blog posts. I always try to give balanced opinions and only advertise reputable companies. My main aim is to help other dog lovers and interact with people who have the same interests as myself.
Occasionally I will just write a blog post about something important to me or a funny thing that happened and I love to get comments from readers with similar experiences.
It’s been a tough old year and blogging is the one thing that has kept me sane. Many bloggers are based overseas and when I am wide awake at 2am here in the UK there is always someone ‘over the pond’ to chat to and I don’t feel so alone.
Christmas is approaching, a melancholy time for me, but as long as I have my dogs I’m fine. Holly my little Chihuahua/Shih Tzu cross will be fifteen on Christmas Eve …she is still a little pocket rocket!
Here is where you can find me on other social media, let me know if you need a Retweet or Repin, I’m always happy to help.
