Blogger Awards – Correction February 3, 2013

The writer and editor of this blog, Adopted Mom, has an impawtent correction to make.

Recently we posted about receiving our first ever Blogger Award, The Next Big Thing.  We were very proud and pawcited to announce this. Well, looks like we made an oopsie. 

This week we received a comment from our furriend Pepper, over at Pepper reminded us that she actually gave us our first blogger award in June of 2012. Here’s what she said:

sunshine award


Now for the 10 Fabulous Bloggers, in no particular order, that I have chosen to pass the Sunshine Award on to:

1.  For concise, well written content.  She is a great mentor to me.  

Yes, AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog Blog encouraged and mentored Pepper and her Mom at the beginning of their blogging adventures.  How could we forget that Pepper had passed on the Sunshine Award to us??? Well, we’re not sure. That’s why we are referring to this omission as an Oopsie.


So, we apologize to Pepper & her Mom and in no way meant to disregard this honor. Sometimes Mommie’s furget stuff and it’s hard to get good help sometimes! Awooooooo Sheesh Mommie!!

We hope they furgive us our mistake and accept this apology post.

Not Exactly A Year End Wrap-Up…But Sorta

    Blog 2012 In Review

As we wave goodbye to 2012 and a hearty welcome to 2013; we decided to take a look at just what went on this past year at AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog Blog. Wow, there’s been a lot!

Growth: we had so much at our blog in 2012. We inaugurated several important Pages that fixed our niche & direction among the world of Pet Blogs. Chazz’s Literary Corner, Canine Cinema Chazz Goes To Da Movies. We came out in a clear way to let Pet Brands and other marketing groups know we were available for partnering, marketing activities on behalf of their products or clients with both our Press/Media and OP/ED Pages.

With the launch of our Press/Media Page, AMTCTD blog started taking careful note of the Country Readership we were developing. Amazing, mind-blowing, to realize dog lovers or just curious folks were clicking on to our blog from where they live on the other side of the world. WooHoo exciting to say the least.

Partnership: We reached out and made new furriends this year with several people. Authors, Hy Conrad & Jeff Johnson brought our year to a smashing close with supporting a Book Review & GiveAway of their hysterical book, Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You To Know – 11 Courageous Canines Tell All. The people over at BIONIC did another GiveAway with us for small dogs – with a Dog Treat Stuffer Ball.

We continue to value our relationship with Disney and their PR. AMTCTD was chosen to see a special screening of Tim Burton’s FRANKENWEENIE movie at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA in September, and prepare a Film Review. The whole thing was a blast, and “Flat Chazz” made the scene too! Santa Paws2, The Santa Pups is another Film Review we did and Disney helped us to give away a BlueRay DVD copy of the film to one lucky winner!

Posting: AMTCTD blog posts on a regular basis. Included among those posts are book reviews, movie reviews, product reviews. We have also stepped up the amount of GiveAways we can offer, partnering with a lot of great folks. This is particularly a win/win for ourselves and our partners. Most of all – we continue to strive to post educational, interesting, and fun content for our reades.

Readership: AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog Blog has been read in over 54 countries worldwide to date. We are certain our largest audience comes from the USA, but it’s clear we have readers far away from these shores too. Dogs are domesticated and kept throughout the world as pets. Granted most cultures don’t go to the extremes some of us here in America do..pampering our pets, dressing them up, carrying them in designer handbags, feeding them designer diets. But lots of folks like reading about dogs, and the culture of being a Pet Parent in today’s world.

We wish to thank each and everyone who has supported our Blog. It is a pawleasure to write, and as long as that remains the case we will be here.

We are looking forward to what 2013 will bring with excitement and anticipation. ChazzTheDog will be turning 5 years old at the end of this month. I can’t hardly believe where the time has gone. He continues to be the source of such love and loyalty, I can hardly get over it. And I hope I never do….


Stick around, we are just getting started!!!!
