Roundup 42 – Favorite Dog Stories, Deals & Videos of the Week
Is the weather a bit warmer than usual where you are? It’s the middle of winter & I’m wearing a hoodie on walks. This is usually the coldest time of year when the weather stays in the teens, yet it’s been in the 40s & 50s for most of the week – very odd indeed.
But we’re not complaining – Laika and I have been enjoying it. So much mud to trample through on walks, which is way better than that nasty, slippery ice if you ask me.
This Roundup Needs a New Name – Any Ideas?
So I’m a bit bored of calling these things “Roundup 42” and my creativity for coming up with names is not one of my strong points. I was thinking of calling these roundups Laika’s Loves, Pup Stories, Doggie Digest or This Week in Dog but they all seems sort of… off and not very catchy. Any ideas for a catchy name for these weekly posts?
Regardless of my naming issues I’m getting back to doing one of the things I love most on the blog – sharing the awesome dog stories I’ve been reading. So here it is my friends – my favorite dog stories of the week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Thanks so much for sharing my post. That last video is hysterical. Sorry I am drawing a blank on a title. All the ones you listed sound catchy to me.
Thanks so much for sharing my post! I’m so chuffed!
Choosing a title is really hard! I’m not sure what I would do in your position. Particularly since those of us who already read recognize your round-ups by their original name, you know?

My thought is the name should be branded. Puppy Leaks Ledger or something like that.
Doggie Digest sounds interesting to me, but, whatever the name is I really enjoy in your round-ups every time.
