Roundup 56: Favorite Dog Articles & Videos of the Week
After checking out the nominees for this years Nose to Nose awards I realized something:
I read a lot, but I’m still missing out on a lot of great blogs.
The posts I feature in these roundups are ones I find through my regular list of aggregator sites, google searches & social media.
Those aggregator sites bring in varying degrees of traffic, so if you’re not on there I just wanted to mention that by listing your blog on BlogLovin, Alltop & Feedly (or all three) you can have your blog seen by new people. (and I’ll have a new place to stalk you from…)
I try my hardest to read a wide variety of dog blogs, but I know I’m missing out on some.
From the overlooked comfort hospice veterinarians can provide to some touching tributes to some special dogs, here’s my favorite dog articles of the week. And I have to warn you that there’s a high chance of tears this week, so you might wanna have some tissues nearby.

Excellent article about understanding that training is a continual process, and it’s a lot of hard work. When you see a well behaved dog remember that there’s a lot of practice that went on to get those results; dogs aren’t born with perfect manners.

Beautiful post about loss, and the ways our memories persist throughout the years.
