Announcing Autobiography Week!

September 27 /08


October 20 /08

Hi pups/kitties/hammies/whatevers.

Just a quickie post to let you in on a some good news.

Our good friend Abby and I are organizing an event called "Autobiography Week," and we're really excited about it and hope you'll all participate.

It's scheduled for the week beginning Monday, Oct. 20th, when you are all invited to blog about your early days as a puppy/kitty/hammy/whatever.

Tell us about any experience from way-back-when that is especially memorable to you and your parents. Or about your ordinary past that was filled with love and fun. Maybe you'll want to tell us why your parents wanted a pet and why you were their pick of the litter, or how you got your name. Anything you remember from your good old littledays will be fine. Maybe you'll want to just share your baby pictures. That's good too.

It doesn't matter how old you were when you joined your family. Each and every one one of you is most welcome to participate.

. The idea for Autobiography Week came to me after reading a fabulous post by Abby last month about how her mom came to choose her as the family pet. It was so interesting and it made me feel like I had gotten to know Abby so much better. So I thought it would be fun if we all posted something about our early puppy/kitty/hammie/whateverhood as a way of drawing us all a little closer as friends.

We've opened a blog page at: so everyone's post can be seen at the same site.

** Visit the site first for more details. Please leave a comment there letting us know you want to participate.
Then email your story and pictures (two pics max. per entry), before Oct. 15th to either of us at:
We will paste your entry to the Autobiography Week site for you.
Please help spread the word by announcing Autobiography Week on your blogs. Don't forget to post a link to the site too or the button on the top of my sidebar.

Thank you, sweet Abby, for helping me put this project together, and for being the inspiration behind it. That post was the work of a genius!
I'll be back to regular posting and I'll catch up on all your blogs when the big rush at Mama's work is over next week. Bye for now, friends.

I'm so excited about this autobiography week thing! It just gives my human another week to dote over me and remember why she loves me so much!

Anyway, I was thinking...If we took over the world what should we rule first? I was thinking maybe Petsmart or maybe all the kitties. If we had the kitties on our side we would have like claw power and stuff!

Hehehehe! Tell your momma hi for me by giving her a big, wet and slobbery kiss right on the face!

Sorry I haven't been around much to check on you and all, but you know...the human...blah blah blah!
