Wow, I simply can’t believe how far this blog has come since September 18!
When I got here, I didn’t have the first clue about what to write, how to do links, or how to label my posts.
I would like to thank the following, oh I’m so nervous so I’ve prepared a list…so in no particular order, oh and if you are not mentioned, please do not take offense, I’m giving special thanks to those who were with me in the beginning, and who have taught me a lot. Ok here goes…
To L^2, yours was one of the first blogs where I started to understand the labeling, as I went and followed the entire story of Willow. You take wonderful photos, and even though I can’t see them, your descriptions bring life to the images in my head. Thank you so much! Oh, and you’ve helped so much with the learning of blogger!
To Emily at Life with the Dogs, you know how I feel about puppy raisers, and yours was one of the first I read, and I followed the whole story of Douglas, and now wait anxiously with you to see how he’ll do. You also told me about the wonderful email list, where I’m just learning so much, thank you!
To Stormcrow at Drums In The Deep, you were my first blind friend on blogger, and I was so happy to find another with a similar yet different story. You are an inspiration my friend, keep writing!
Miss JayNoi at One Voice ~ Write Right, what do I say about Joni? she typed her name wrong in a comment, and my screen reader pronounced it funny, and she’ll be forever JayNoi to me now. Keep giving those pointers, and lets keep teasing Stormcrow 😉
Dear Toby, your blog Toby’s Life as a Guide dog in Training was the first blog I started following written by a guide dog puppy. You are so adorable, and your trainer is oh so sweet, and I am so grateful to have you both in my life!
This blog wouldn’t have been started without Chupa, my dear friend in real life who moved away. I won’t go into what I love about her here, because she already knows, and this isn’t the place. I love you and miss you Chupa! Thank you for giving me the idea to start this blog. You have no idea what it has done for me, and I doubt I can ever express it.
And finally, my favorite Canadians. Oh I’m gonna get all misty eyed… I have to laugh at the fact that the first time I commented on a blog post, I got offended at comments on a “sensitive day” and now I love Karen and Steve to pieces. I plug Vomit Comet more than any other blog, because they have quickly become my favorite one stop for laughter, information, jokes, guide dog stories and whatever else strikes their fancy. Blogger made us neighbors, but Karen made us friends. She’s my Canadian counterpart, we ran into each other on an email list, and now we’re yacking at each other in email so we don’t bore our list mates with our rambling. If there is such a thing as a blogger best friend, Karen is mine. I also must bow down to them, because today I tackled the project of fine tuning my labels, which turned into an all day event, but it was only for 99 posts. Karen and Steve had to do labels for posts for 5 freaking years! Thank you, for helping me realize this task was possible, and for sharing your blood sweat and tears….oh, the stick man is waving his wand…
The music is about to play, so I better wrap up, I just want to say again, thank you so much to everyone, wait wait wait stick man, I want to plug everyone! No! You don’t understand! This post is my reward for all the labeling! I haven’t even shut down my computer since the blogger addiction started, I’ve only put it to sleep, wait stick man! You don’t get what I went through trying to make this post I had like ten Safari Windows open and like ten programs and Alex was tired from all the labeling and he just didn’t want to work anymore so I had to shut everything down and I had to get this post in tonight because I committed to a post a day for 30 days oh shut up stick man stop your stupid music I had to eat dinner and watch the documentary on Andre Agassi and I’m almost done can’t you let me finish what about my other friends and new bloggers I haven’t mentioned them, ok seriously its not necessary to send the pretty girl to come get me I’m leaving alright? Ok, fine, I”m done.
