It’s Pet Parade 259 time!
Welcome to your favourite weekly Blog Hop of posts and social media shares. We are celebrating taking up the hosting the Pet Parade with a giveaway, and a survey and an appeal. We look forward to seeing you strut your social media stuff at the bottom of the post. We have a lot to say so let’s go.
We are proud to take on the mantle of Hop Hosts from Rascal and Rocco who are taking a well earned break to focus on other creative endeavours. We thank them for the amazing fun they have given us, and we wish them well.
You know our Pet Parade 259 co-hosts, of course!
We hope you will enjoy submitting your posts, tweets and pins, then visiting fellow hoppers. Please share the Pet Parade using your favourite social media channels and let’s tear up the blogosphere!
This week we have a celebratory giveaway to launch Dash Kitten’s joining the Pet Parade and an appeal for two cats in peril.
The appeal comes from our trusted friend and rescue colleague Brian Frum. Two cats are at high risk of euthanasia. Mom (90) is going into care and, tough to say this but, son ‘doesn’t care’ about the cats and wants them euthanised……. As part of our efforts to help, the highest earning task in our Rafflecopter giveaway is the Tweet on behalf of the kitties.

We have a gift basket of goodies for those who take time to comment, tweet and visit our Facebook page:

Finally, Why a Blog Hop Survey?
We looked at the blog hops that our many pet and animal friends have the opportunity to visit during the week, they are amazing. On Friday alone there are Flashback, Felines, Fails, Flowers and the popular Friday Fill-ins. You can get an idea of the number of pet related hops here.
So we are hoping to move to Wednesday and a less crowded visiting and sharing time. Don’t worry you would still have the whole week! We want to embrace and celebrate both the inspiring images we discover in wordless posts, and give our word loving friends a chance to speak out. WOW can be wordy OR wordless. So, we would love your input. OK friends, let’s get this Hop on the road!
We are having issues commenting on Google only blogs at the moment. We struggle to comment sometimes, in spite of trying every trick we can. We will try not to let you down BUT if you do not get a comment, this is why.
