Goings On

Hey Everyone!
Wow, it's another Half Full Friday!  Woohoooo.  Happy Weekend To All.
Half Full Friday is that day of the week where Sprinkles reminds us to see our glass as half full rather than half empty.  I'm cool with that!  Maybe you could join us by telling how your week was Half Full.

So, my week was actually pretty much middle-of-the-road.  Nothing really exciting, nothing really bad....EXCEPT for My Bestest Girl Zona's surgery!  I am still worried and so sorry that she has this awful ouchie, but her surgery went well and she's back home recovering.  WHEW!  Otherwise, this week's just humm-drummmmmmm.

Since there's nothing else exciting to tell....I'll just remind all of you about the Goings On in our world!

Check out the Blogville Community Calendar here to see all of the happenings.  Lots of my good furiends are having contests, challenges etc.  and you don't want to miss out.  Here are the current events:
Sasha is getting the bark out about Pedigree's Write a Post-Help a Dog campaign.  Each participating post will send kibble to a shelter.   See her 6-27-12 post for details and a badge.  Deadline is 6-30-12.
Garth Riley is hosting a Silly Photo Contest.  See his blog for details.  Photos accepted until 7-6-12 at midnight EST.  Winners announced on 7-14-12 and multiple hand-crafted prizes will be awarded in several categories.
Blogville's annual HonoRooRoo vacation and luau is scheduled for 7-4-12.  Instead of sending pictures to a host, and in honor of Fiesty Three, please plan your own posts to celebrate the event.  
Gopher is hosting a Treat Outline Challenge.  See his 5-30-12 post for details.  Outline your body with treats and send him your picture by 6-30-12 to enter.  Voting will be in July for prize trading card and toy.

Deccy is offering an Excellent Blog Award for June.  The event is a caption contest for his Wordless Wednesday posts this month.  See his 6-1-12 post for details and the deadline is midnight GMT on 6-30-12.  Prize awarded in early July. 
Dusty is celebrating his first barkday with a contest.  See his blog and click the Dusty's Celebration Competition tab under the header to see the entries and vote.  Deadline for voting is 7-25-12.  The prize is a graphite or pastel portrait of the winning picture.


Please don't forget that I'm hosting the Swimming Events for the upcoming combined Blogville Olympics and Cat-O-Lympics!

I'll accept your entry pix from July 9 until midnight EST July 18.  Please send them to me at this addy:  lfurman1987ATyahooDOTCOM.     Send them in final form since I can't photoshop.  Please be very creative and all species are welcome!  10 meter, freestyle, doggiepaddlie, backstroke, relay, 20 meter, etc etc etc.  I'll take it all!

There are tons of events to get ready for!  Lots more than just Swimming.
Pet Blogging Games is coordinating the information for the combined Blogville Olympics and Cat-O-Lympics.  Entry pictures can be sent to the Blogville Olympic event hosts from 7-9-12 through midnight 7-18-12.  Entry pictures for the Cat-O-Lympics can be sent to those event hosts from early July until July 18th.  Opening ceremony on 7-27-12 with games beginning on 7-28-12.  Closing ceremony on 8-12-12.   All events are open to all species

 I think this is keeping all of our lives waaay more than Half Full!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Hi Sarge, things are a little stressful here. We have my mom's parents, her brother and his dog here for the next couple of months. We're all adjusting.

There's always so much going on in Blogville. I don't know how you manage to keep it all straight and be able to blog about it. Thank you, I'm glad you do.

Such a relief about Miss Zona!

My boys don't swim so they can't pawticipate in this event, but there's so many others, I'm sure we'll find at least one.
