I had a few goals in mind when I started Doggies and Stuff. Not only did I have goals, but I had information I wantedto share with others – a lot of information. Doggies and Stuff gives me an outlet – a way to talk to others about things I feel are important and that I care about: Dogs, Saving the Planet, Pet Charities, Putting an End to Puppy Mills, Stomping out BSL, Tougher Penalties for those Caught Dog Fighting, How to Choose Safe, Green/Organic/Natural Products for your Dog(s) – to name a few. Sure, free stuff is cool - I love being able to give my readers a chance to win some pretty cool products for their pets (and sometimes products for pet parents)! However, I feel like Doggies and Stuff is much more than that. The girls try products out and then I give you my honest opinions. I know that when I am looking for something specific to purchase I look for reviews first. I want pet parents to be comfortable with products that I recommend.
Why I started Doggies and Stuff -
- Share Knowledge! I wanted to share my knowledge with others. I have always been THAT person to come to when someone has a dog question. I grew up with dogs, so I have a lot of personal experiences that I can share with others. That, combined with being a sponge and just soaking up as much information as I can, gives me the knowledge that I can share with other pet parents here.
- Be a Voice! I am a voice for those who do not have one: DOGS! Dogs cannot talk but I CAN and I WILL! I can be their advocate. As long as I have a breath in my body I will continue to fight for dogs. I will continue to push for an end to puppy mills and dog fighting! I will continue to push for change – for tougher penalties for those who abuse animals, for an end to BSL. Having a dog blog allows me to have a voice for animals and that is more important to me than anything.
- Animal Welfare! I can say with certainty that 100% of the pet bloggers out there are in some way involved in rescue. What better way to get information out about pet charities, animals in need, fund raising, legislation and much more than by blogging? From the moment I decided to start a blog I carried a small notebook with me. I jotted down the reasons why I wanted to start a blog and helping animals was a huge for me.
