Many of us spend time perusing blogs. We read people’s words and inevitably find a commonality. Bloggers are notably fantastic about divulging the ‘unspeakable’, which gives readers an opportunity to laugh, connect, and commiserate. In fact, blogging has become an acceptable and important part of our society. Bloggers have stories to tell and readers are waiting to be entertained with one click on their keyboard. We all want to know that we are not the only ones up to our chins in laundry and on our hands and knees scrubbing dog pee and Play-Doh out of the carpet. In order to
stalk get to know your favorite bloggers a little better, I would like to present the four legged members of their families; their pets!
This Internet world of over-sharing and reaching out has provided people with joy, insight, and sometimes real assistance. Writing is an often difficult task that is creatively and mentally taxing. People have a lot of opinions, and for many (trolls) the Internet seems like the perfect place to unload some negativity. Anyone who puts themselves ‘out there’ is also opening the doors for criticism and judgement. Many of these writers are also juggling families, careers, and managing a household. It can be a lot of pressure. These blogger’s beloved pets (and maybe a glass of Cabernet) are often their only source of non-judgmental refuge. Pets are important for many reasons. First of all, they are great listeners; they almost never talk back or interrupt you. Also, they offer unconditional love; unless they are a cat, then they love you when it’s convenient for them. Pets still want to snuggle with you, even if you have failed to shower… again. Finally, the presence of animals is calming; unless they are my dogs, who tend to bark pretty much incessantly and stink up the house with their toots.
