And I like them, too!
So does Daddy!
Yes, I am honored to announce that, as of January 21st, the Editor over at the OC Pets Site/Pet Tales Blog of the Orange County Register Newspaper website, the wonderful Samantha Gowen has added me to their "Blogs We Dig" List!
On Twitter Samantha describes herself this way:
Petaholic who feeds on all-things animals all the time. Veteran journalist and pet mom to many, I'm zany about pets, news, products and more.
She's the Editor in Charge of Pet Tales, a blog that reports on the "Animal World of Orange County and beyond".
I can't thank her enough for the show of support!
Daddy, and I have been long time fans of the Pet Columns in the print edition of the newspaper, where there is a Dog Columnist, and the lady who runs my Vet Office is the Cat Columnist.
Until I got my own blog I had not explored the website that much, just included a link in my sidebar, but now I can say that I love the OC Pets Webpages as much as the Columns!
There is great reporting, humor, and resources to be found here.
The OC Pets main page gathers all the departments in one place, for easy browsing.
At the top of the page are recent headlines, followed by links to 6 Featured Depts:
Celebs and Pets
People and Pets
You will quickly see that there is much more here than coverage of the World of Felines...as all important as we Felines might think such coverage is. ;-D
The Adoption Section is up next, with adorable photos, and information, about 25 Cats, and Dogs, looking for their Forever Home.
The next 2 sections of the Main Page feature stories from the Pet Tales Blog.
Next up is a round-up of some interesting "Critter links" reports from other interesting blogs.
In the News is a round-up of interesting stories as reported by other news sources.
The Pets Photo Gallery is an extensive, and glorious, collection of Critter Pics that is always being added to.
You will also find lots of videos to enjoy.
The Pet Tales Blog itself features not just the reporting of Samantha, but several other Featured Columnists as well, and in the Pet Tales Pages section of her sidebar you can learn more about Maryanne Dell, The Dog Columnist, Marie Hulett, and Dr. Elaine Wexler-Mitchell, The Cat Doc/Cat Columnist, and Vladae Roytapel.
You can search the posts by category.
The Critter Links Section has a great variety of resources to check out.
The Pet Chatter section features recent comments to stories, and blog posts.
****UPDATE - 4/28/11****
The good news is that the wonderful Samantha Gowen will be found there! ;-D
