Announcement

As discussed yesterday, The Mom and I love to read. We read lots of stuff! Here's a picture of a very small part of the wall of books in my (yup, that's MY) room:



We read text books:


And we read blogs. Lots and lots of blogs. And that got me thinking. We like to read so much, and I guess that you all like to read too (you're here, aren't you?), that we probably like to read many of the same things and that we should be somehow sharing those things with you. So, without further delay, I am announcing today................. my

READ OF THE WEEK AWARD!

Starting today, I'm going to share what we're reading with you. I'm going to select blogs, books, magazines, something that we're reading and think you would enjoy. Here's the rules that I'm going to use to select my Read of the Week award:

  • My Read of the Week will be dog related.
  • It may be a blog, or a book, or a magazine article or a web article. Really, anything that we read is fair game.
  • I'll try to keep it 'G' rated, but every now and then it might be 'PG' related. Reader beware!

So, I thought a lot about my very first Read of the Week Award. I wanted to feature something very special to me, something that really got me started with reading blogs and encouraging me to start my own blog. The Mom and I were surfing the 'net one afternoon about two years ago, and we did a random search on 'Siberian Husky'. We got a lot of the usual stuff, you know, breed standard, famous Huskies and so on. We also got a link to the VERY FIRST blog that we read. And we were hooked ! That first blog belongs to a Siberian Husky who lives with five other canines and one human. We've enjoyed reading all sorts of cool stuff about logos, and the 'stupid' Dyson, and now we're enjoying reading about his candidacy for President of Dogcountry!

To thank him for showing me this wonderful world of blogging and in honor of his stupendous wins last week on 'Super Tubesday' and his expected win of the Pawmary Election being held this week in my own state of Maryland, my first Read of the Week award goes to:

Tubey and his blog - World of Turbo

I'm going right over to his blog to tell him, while The Mom tries to think of some cool widget thing we can use to award our deserving winners. Then, we're going to curl up with a good book!

That is awesome! My Mom loves to read. I like to read if I can get her to throw a ball in between. I can't sit still THAT long. :P

May we recommend the BARK magazine? It is the greatest!

Hey, Dakota-
Your mom emailed me about a book club. Maybe we could invite people to join. Each month, one person could pick a dog-related book and moderate a discussion on his or her website. Or, we could create a new blog just for that. There are so many fabulous dog books out there--it'd be fun to read them together. What do you think?

The Husky in the Window said...

Oh yes we all agree, Turbo has a cool blog. We can't wait for him take over and fix all these problems the humans have created.

We like your bookshelf. We like to read here too, all sorts of books.
Husky Hugs,MayaMarie

The Army of Four said...

We agree with Kat - great choice! We started blogging because of Tubey and Meeshka!
I have a few law books under my uh.. collar myself. The guy who picked me up off the streets (then gave up on me) was a lawyer. I just ate up some of his books while he was working. Ha roo roo roo!
Play bows,
