Furry Friday :: Yelp! Adopt a Dog, Make a Friend Friday, Jul 30 2010 

My name is Camo. I am as sweet as they come, and I love to give hugs. I usually hang out inside in the shelter office because I am such a good dog that everyone at Yelp wants me to help them with their office work. I love to sleep under the desks in the office. I absolutely love kids and other dogs. I don’t think their is a family that I wouldn’t fit right in to. I promise if you adopt me, you will have the best dog around.

Camo is up-to-date with routine shots, microchipped, and neutered.

Come by to see me and my friends Saturday, July 31, 2010 at the Mall of Louisiana from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m.  Across from Borders on the grassy area.

Adopt a Dog : Make a Friend Thursday, Jul 1 2010 

Girly10 (my daughter) and I went to check out YelpBR.  I have heard many things about this no-kill dog adoption facility and wanted to see what it was all about.  Let me tell you, they are a wonderful organization!  They have many very sweet dogs up for adoption.  As you can imagine they need lots of help.  They need volunteers as well as monetary donations for supplies, vet services, etc. 

I have partenered up with these fine people and will start sharing with you the the wonderful canines they have up for adoption and also share the upcoming events they will be hosting.  Stay tuned and be pre-warned…these dogs will steal your heart!

I’ve been “Quoted”! Tuesday, Sep 15 2009 

Last week  I was contacted by a local newspaper writer.  He asked me if he could quote me on some of the things I had written on my blog.  They were going to run an article about the local housing market.  I thought for a minute…hmmm…Well YEA

Seems that this individual follows my blog through my Facebook Fan page Jambalaya Wire.

Today, while sitting in front of my computer I see Weekly Citizen stream through on Facebook.  I look a little closer and the link was about Ascension Parish Housing.  I click the link and find the article where I have been quoted!

Now, to me this is a big deal.  I have never been quoted before by any news agency.  The only quoting I get is usually from my children and they are usually quoting something that really should not have ever left the house 🙂

I have to say, in my humble opinion, the article is very well written and I am very pleased.  So tonight, I am basking in my 15 minutes of fame if you will.  Would you like to see what the excitement is all about?

ps. I did go to the nearest store a buy a few copies!  One for my broker and one to autograph for my husband 🙂
