This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of the blog! My very first post was direct and to the point, Melvin is a blessing.
In the past year, Melvin has (unexpectedly) gained a bit of a cult following! I started the blog because he gives me so much content, it was a crime not to share it. Over the course of the first year, in addition to his antics, we blogged about packing up our old house and moving into the new. You were there with us when we found out he had Happy Tail, the frustrations about it not healing and how difficult it was to keep wrapped. Writing the blog helped me get (and get him) through his amputation and it helped to chronicle his love of apples and fashion. In that order. The remaining 90% of the posts have been about Melvin’s gold medal winning ability to lay around and claim every inch of this home as his own.
What’s up next? The blog is getting a Facebook page (almost ready) and Melvin will be getting a sibling. But no matter what our next adventure turns out to be, I want to extend my sincerest thanks that you join us. I have met (virtually and in-person) some of the most wonderful people while doing this blog. Dog, cat and all-around animal lovers and activists. A community I’m proud to be a part of. Melvin and I are so grateful for each and every person who pops in to see what we are up to.
Melvin sends a super-shout-out also. He’s a bit busy patrolling for the brown truck man right now but I can assure you he did pause to drool in your direction.
