Editor’s Note: This was supposed to be posted Friday, but I was having technical difficulties. My normal posting schedule will resume (hopefully!) next week.
My regularly scheduled Friday post has a new twist this week. Jenni from the Blog hosts a weekly challenge, called Your Three Words(Y3W) in which bloggers attempt to summarize their week in a three-word title. I’ve been enjoying reading people’s Y3W posts for a while, and I thought it would be a great fit for my “Friday Free-for-All” posts, so here we are.
My three word this week are “three day weekend!”
It’s Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week 2011, and behind that somewhat lengthy name is a really great cause that’s near and dear to my heart: finding homes for all the deserving cats and dogs who need them.
You’d like to think that every cat or dog awaiting adoption had an equal shot at finding its way to a “forever home,” but sadly, that’s nowhere close to reality. Black pets, senior pets, blind or deaf pets, banned or restricted breeds, FIV+ cats … the list goes on. All of these pets are less likely to be adopted and more likely to have an extended stay in the shelter or rescue. Petfinder.com created this week to generate awareness of this challenge and put the spotlight on these underdogs (and under-cats!) awaiting adoption.
Ok, folks, to get the blog moving a little more, I’m going to try something new: a little weekly recap of what’s going on in my life and/or the web. Since it’s a little bit of everything I think I will call it Friday Free-for-All. (Why, yes, I do like a little alliteration now and then! :-))
So, here goes! If you like it, let me know down in the comments section.
