Dog Bloggers Beware!!!

Sammy and I were tooling down the road, windows open, A/C on high, feeling fancy free on the way to our Agility class last night. Of course we had the radio tuned to National Public Radio.

I heard a story that got me thinking. (That happens a lot when you listen to NPR.) It was about Mommy Bloggers. You can hear or read it HERE. Apparently those Mommy Bloggers are sneaking PAID ADVERTISEMENTS into the text of their blogs and not informing their readers.

In fact, they are compromising their integrity for a buck, and they are drawing the attention of the Federal Trade Commission.

Can you imagine what would happen if the Dog Bloggers got bought off? Oh my. The whippets suddenly endorsing ...


As we were on our lovely walk, we happened upon a stupid, ugly, stinking err... love ... choke ... lovely city squirrellie that we chewed into bloody bits who looked like he wanted some Corn Pone For Squirrel Enemies Friends! You can buy Corn POISON Pone at your local store.

No, I don't think that would work at all.

Dogs can't lie.

Hug your truthful hounds!


  1. It's funny, I got an offer for advertising in my blog and they didn't want an ad in the sidebar; they wanted me to link in the post text. As if! So wrong!

  2. Ummmm...is there food involved?


    pee ess...muzzer says NO WAY!
    There goes my peanut butter

  3. Oh, dogs can too lie and frequently do. Ask a dog if they ate the meat off the counter top and they look like they are just appalled anyone would do that. But if you say, I KNOW You did that! They just skulk off and hide somewhere, knowing full well you had them to rights!

    Stella, except me, I don't lie!

  4. That was an excellent wawning..but I know none of ouw doggies awe that two faced. You'we wight we nevew lie
    smoochie kisses

  5. this is true. we dogs do not lie. that's why we are perfect. and that's why our mom loves us.


  6. The crazy old bat says that would make her brain hurt. She has enough trouble with what she does now.

  7. I know I would not be able to do that!
    Kisses and hugs

  8. HAHAHAHAHA! Wait, are you advertising whippets? I'll take two, please.

    wally t.

  9. I don't even like the "monetize" option on blogger! Boo. (But I guess I do understand that people need to make an extra buck.) {sigh}

  10. They can't? Hm.. Bajas keep assuring me he hasn't had any dinner today... Tee hee..


  11. Your picture made me laugh so hard. It looks like he is wearing little kitty slippers. H.

  12. You won't make any money with that ad. Nobody is going to believe someone from the superior feline race would lower themselves and have a stinky dog friend. And how dare you use me and Luna as your slippers???


  13. We have gotten free stuff to try but we have never put up a positive review if we didn't like the product that would be wrong.

  14. That is downright deceitful! I would never do that because I have integrity and Tanner would never do that because he just isn't smart enough :)


Love your comments! Love them we do. Don't be bashful! Thank you for visiting :-)
