SECOND....     Have you heard about this NEW THINGY that our Cussin SARGE has going???

He is giving out LOTS of Info about Blogville and how to get some NEW or MISSING in Action...furends... to join Blogville...
     The other day he had a super post up about it... and we want to share it with you on OUR Blog...
Below are Sarge's words....

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I'm wagging like crazy because I'm already getting some good response about my May event Recruit A Pal!    Here are the basics as mentioned in yesterday's post:

Recruit A Pal will run the entire month of May through midnight 5-31-15.
Bring a new pal to Blogville or bring back one who hasn’t posted for 1 year.
New/Return pals must post on 6-1-15 to introduce themselves. 
New/Return pals must follow at least:  their Recruiter, Sarge, & BCCalendar.
Recruiters must notify me (lfurman1987ATyahooDOTcom) by 6-1-15.
Email must include the names and blog addresses of the Recruiter and Pal.
All species are welcome.
I will provide 1 prize for Recruiters.  Item from Clara’s Collars.
Frankie & Ernie will provide 1 prize for New/Return pals.
Madi will provide 1 prize for New/Return pals.   One handmade scarf.
Murphy & Stanley will provide prizes for Recruiters.   Four recipe books.
Oreo will provide 1 prize for a Recruiter and 1 for a New/Return pal.
A community wide dance will be held on 6-2-15 for everyone in Blogville.


Today, I thought I'd try to help you explain exactly what Blogville is and what we do.
Have you ever tried to tell someone about Blogville and find both of you befuddled?  BWAR HAR HAR     It can be a little hard to describe without sounding silly or time consuming or complicated.

Basically, here's how I see us.    We are like Pen Pals through our pets.     We use Blogger or Wordpress instead of paper, envelopes and stamps.   We show the world through our pets' eyes.

Some of what we do is totally virtual, made up, and fantastical.    We drive cars, wear ball gowns, have jobs, talk.   We play in bands, throw parties, cater food and drinks.  We write stories and poems and tell jokes.   We have an enormous amount of pure entertainment in Blogville.

Some of what we do is very, very real.   We raise funds for rescues, those in need, emergencies for our furiends.   We give and get advice about products and pet problems and questions.   We support each other in times of need.  We raise awareness about pet issues.   We do a great amount of tangible good here in Blogville.

For the most part the peeps are anonymous.  Usually the pets are the bloggers and the stars of the show.   But, we also sometimes meet in person.   We share so much through Blogville that many of us begin to feel like furiends and family.   You can stay totally hidden behind your blog or you can connect with others however you are comfortable.    We also have peeps who are a big part of Blogville.    We welcome all peeps and all species of animals.   We have dogs, cats, birds, pigs, rabbits, donkeys.   We have had fish, guinea pigs, horses, turtles and hermit crabs (POL).   Our citizens come from all over the planet.   Really, all over.    We get a diverse way of seeing the world.   

Maybe this will help some of you try to describe Blogville to others. 

We think he did an AMAZING job of TRYING to explain what being a resident of Blogville is all about...         You can Copy it and put it to good use....  by showing it to some of your NON BLOGGING... Furends...  and asking them to MOVE to the BRIGHT SIDE....
THIRDLY....     If you have not heard...  Mona and Prissy and Sammy Jean's Mom....   MISS SARAH   is having some health issues...   She could use some of Blogville's FINEST  POTP
Miss Ann made this Badge fur us to SHARE and to help spread the word about Miss Sarah...   You can click her NAME to leave some good words...      Miss Sarah is always one of the very furst to step forward to HELP OTHERS...  and now she could use a bit, herself...
      POTP   and   Crossed Paws   fur Miss Sarah

Happy Gotcha Day Frankie.

We will try to think of some pals to recruit. Seems like a lot of the bloggers who were blogging when we first got started are AWOL.

You get to meet Shawnee?? Are you going to go on an 87 mile hike with them? If you get tired and need me to pick you up, just let me know ...I know how Shawnee and his mom like to hike VERY LONG HIKES, MANY MILES. Tell them we said hello.

I know and LOVE Shawnee. You will have a blast together. I'm pretty sure she won't do the No-Walkin-Wagon, though. You should stretch and warm up before she arrives. Have fun.

Love and licks,

We met Shawnee and are so happy to have a new friend. We will be covering the Invite a Friend to Blogville on the news during May. It's the real happiest place on earth!
