Roundup #4 The Best Dog Articles of the Week
I’m trying to relax this weekend, but the shock from Tuesday’s announcement on the Nose to Nose nominations from Blog Paws hasn’t worn off. Puppy Leaks has been nominated for best new blog – I’m extremely honored and grateful. Thank you so much for being awesome. Congrats to all the finalists and be sure to check out all of the wonderful nominees.
