We've been making badges for Special Events and Blog Hops for some time now ... but going forward, and beginning in July, want to take a new approach.  My hope and goal is to focus on events that are more all inclusive and that will appeal to all in our pet blogging community.  Certainly, most of us blog about our dogs and our cats, and many events do shine a spotlight on them!  Yet, as our little "cartoonized" graphic below shows ... the world of pet blogging goes a little further ...

Look ... there's KISMET and PIPER, squaaakking and singing, and they are part of the pet blogging world ... do you know them?  Now, we are sure many of you do know CHESTER L.W. SPANIEL (that's our rendition of him, down in the lower right corner ...) but we just want to mention that he writes with great wit and humor naming all the members of the Evil Squirrel Cartel, and the birds ... oh my, what glorious names they all have, even the [nasty] Great Grackle Flying PTA.  So, if you don't know Chester, well, you just must!  And then, of course, there's our Number One Favorite Hopper ... SPEEDY, the Cheeky House Bunny, always up to, in to something.  [p.s. click on any of their names to visit them please ...]

And the dogs, and the cats ~ and more dogs and more cats!  And we love 'em all!  Just under our header you'll see a LINK for a special page, EVENTS BADGES FOR BLOGGERS.  Near the end of each month, our plan is to fill this page with updated badges for all the new events we're aware of for the coming month.  Anyone is free to visit the page ~ at any time, grab a badge and use at will and join the event ... many for July are already posted on the page.

We are not proprietary about our graphics ~ there is no copyright information on this blog.  You may use the images with or without credit to Zoolatry, in truth we are flattered when others choose to display our work.  The images will be posted at 500 pixels square ~ if you'd like it in a different size, perhaps smaller for your sidebar, and do not have the software to downsize it, just email us, we'll be glad to resize it for you.


Last ~ not least ~ and MOST IMPAWTENT!  Here's how you can help and be a big part of this ... let us know about any Special Events you think the pet blogging community will be interested in ... the only caveat is that the event should have a broad focus, be of interest to many.  And please let us know by mid month prior, so there's time to create a badge!  Are you hosting a one time special event or blog hop, we'll be happy to promote that as well ... either by designing a badge for you, or if you've already created your own badge, we'll add it to our page of events.  Just email your image and details to us.

Here are the events we have so far for July,
let us know about any we have missed:

July 1 ~ Canada Day
July 4 ~ Independence Day
July 11 ~ Pet Photo Day
July 15 ~ Pet Fire Safety Day
