The insertion bar keeps ticking, waiting for the keyboard's input while my eyes keep blinking and fingers tapping... what to say?
Welcome to dogUtah.com! This is my first blog and I have 3 days 5 hrs 43 mn to make it count!
I'm participating in Pedigree Brand "Write a Post, Help a Dog" campaign this year that ends on June 30th midnight ET. For each blog post mentioning Pedigree Brand's commitment to adoption and finding shelter dogs loving homes, Pedigree will donate one 17-lb bag of Pedigree Dry Dog Food to a shelter in need.
With more than 4 million dogs homeless each year, any way to help feed them for free is obviously a pawesome deal! In the past 2 years, through the "Write a Post, Help a Dog" initiative at BlogPaws (a national conference for pet blogging and social media that was just held here in SLC, UT!!!), Pedigree and bloggers have united to create nearly 650 blog posts to raise awareness about commitment to adoption. Last year alone, participating blogs generated nearly 3000 pounds of new Pedigree Dry Dog Food that was donated to shelters affected by Hurricane Irene.
If you feel like blogging, here's how you can help:
1. write a post mentioning Pedigree Brand's commitment to adoption and finding homes for shelter dogs
2. click here to add your post to the blog hop so it will get counted
3. finish by midnight June 30th EST
Thanks for reading my first blog ... 2 days 3 hrs 14 mn left. Yay, this will contribute another 17 pounds to the community dog bowl!
