I created a DogDaz family portrait to commemorate our one year of blogging.  I really can not believe that I have posted every day for one year.  It has been an incredible experience.  Some weeks were really hard, especially when my work load was busy or I was traveling.  And then there were the days that I was sick or just tired or maybe both.  But I did it!  I must say that I have virtually met some really wonderful people out there in cyberspace and some feel as close as physical friends do.  We have shared our joys, our sorrows, loss, and gains, and most of all, we have shared of ourselves, of who we are.  I really had no idea what I was getting into when I started this last November, it just seemed like a fun way to focus on the animals.  What I never realized was that over time, it would become a way to focus and get clear on the things going on in my life, a cathartic experience, and mostly, a calming and deeply enjoyable endeavor. 

So what does one do when they have blogged everyday for a year?  Do they take a break for awhile?  Do they go to Disneyland? I am not sure.  DogDaz has become a ritual part of my everyday life.  Thank you for reading and for commenting and thanks for all the awards.  All of us here at the DogDaz Zoo are so happy that we got to share this year with you.  But don’t go to far away just yet because just like the animals, I like routine, and DogDaz is now a big part of mine. 

Happy Blogeversary!

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Congrats on a year well spent! Glad we found you and your zoo crew and looking forward to following along. Also, that may be the best family portrait of all time.

      Welcome. Hard to get them all to stand still for the photographers, so I figured I would just shop them in.

    How awesome that you have been blogging EVERY DAY for ONE YEAR! That’s amazing. What’s really fantastic is what it has created in your life…who knew? I am curious about what the 2nd year will create for you and the zoo. Hey, have you asked the zoo what they think about the big day? Let us know what you are hearing from our 4-legged friends….Love your blog!

      Thanks Vicki – It has definitely changed things in my life. The animals take each day anew – which is the beauty of their perspective. They don’t know it, but it may mean some extra snacks. BOL (Bark Out Loud)
