Happy Blogaversary To Us!

Hi everyone! We know last week was Christmas, and tomorrow is New Years Eve... but today is a very special day for us. Its our first Blogaversary! 
One year ago today, we weren't sure what to do. Mama and Lily had just moved back in with Gramma and Grampa and the rest of us, after their living situation got too lousy to continue. Mama was sad, bored and lonely. After she read us a blog she stumbled upon, written by a dog, we had a great idea. Why not start our own blog? Mama could help us with it, and it would give her something to focus on and be excited about. And so, on December 30, 2010,  Sammy-Joe wrote our first post introducing us to Blogville. Before long, our first twelve bloggy friends... Twinkie, Derby and Ducky, Zazou and Calypso, Harry Spotter, Honeybuzz, Madi, Maggie Mae, Jazzi, Wyatt, Mayzie, Oskar, and the Monkeys... had send us welcoming comments! 


The next night was New Years Eve, and Trixie took her turn writing in the blog. She wrote about how Mama struggles with Aspergers, ADHD and depression, which made her not want to go to any big New Years parties, but instead was home alone with us pets. We told you how we had the job of being Emotional Support Animals, to keep Mama's spirits up and keep her from being sad and lonely too much. Again, ten bloggy friends commented, this time including Mr. Pip, Priscilla and Eva, Shibasenji, Aksharaa, Daisy, Brian,  and Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan! We knew we'd found a home in Blogville.


As  2011 came, we did so much! We got involved in doing pet product reviews, took our first Pet Blogger Challenge, joined Pet Blogs United, pawticipated in Blog The Changeraised money for a sick doggie friend, played an April Fools joke on you, celebrated our birthdays, and pawticipated in a real-life Walk-athon


One of our favorite memories of you all is when Gramma and Grampa went out of town and Mama became very sad and lonely. We had to be at the top of our game to help Mama! When we told you all about it, so many of you responded right away, sending Mama your love and support! It really helped us all get through a rough spot. Thanks!


You were also there for us when Lily got spayed and when Trixie had her seizure. Whenever we had something to share, good or bad, you were there for us! 


And so, as 2011 comes to an end, we wanted to give you all our love. We want to let you know that we'll be continuing to blog... hopefully even more often, and better, than we did in 2011, We look forward to making more friends, and definitely to keeping in touch with the friends we've known for a year! 


Thanks everyone! We love you all so much!
