I signed up for the gift exchange not being 100% certain of what to expect. Being me having signed up I panicked that the poor person paired with me would look at my blog and think they had been stuck with the ‘Christmas Turkey’. Although I am lucky enough to be sat here today with BD nudging my arm as I type and Mity in the next room I don’t know if I qualify as a pet blogger. I didn’t know if anyone has been turned down for any of the past pet blogger exchanges – but I was terrified that I would be the first!!
However, not only was I accepted (whoop!) but I have been given the most wonderful exchange ‘gift’ as I was paired with the amazing Dawn from American Dog Blog.
Now I must apologise to Dawn, my crazy hectic life has distracted me slightly and so I have not spent as much time on your blog as I would have liked or intended to. This means that I am struggling slightly to share much about Dawn as a pet blogger or the lovely Maya and Pierson, I can’t shed shed light on their relationship or list some recommended reads from her blog.
However I can wax lyrical about the wonderful Dawn as a truly amazing person. There is no need to mention the current issues i have going on, however I can tell you that Dawn has been amazingly supportive and kind, even when I have moaned to her about the same thing for what must feel like the 1000th time! I value Dawn so much and I am so so pleased that fate (aka Pamela) has brought us together.
Dawn is a girl after my own heart and we seem to have a lot in common. If she didn’t live so far away I am certain we would spend many a fantastic evening sharing tears and laughter over a bottle of wine…or three! Dawn has become someone who I know I can turn to when the going get tough and she embodies everything that is great about the bogging community. Her heart and kindness is evident as is her passion…… and I really worry that I am not doing her justice with this post.
As part of the exchange we were supposed to exchange gifts, but as she lives in America – the clue is sort of in the name – and I don’t we decided instead that we would donate our gifts to a local rescue. As I am just beyond rubbish I am yet to make my donation, but I was so pleased that Dawn was happy to bend the rules slightly with me and that we became rebels together.
I could wax lyrical about how amazing Dawn is, but instead I want to encourage you to stop by the American Dog Blog. As trust me you want this lady in your life!!
