Today is National Tooth Fairy Day! In this flashback photo, my puppy Sadie has lost her very first baby tooth. Instead of cash, the Tooth Fairy put a dog treat under little puppy Sadie’s dog bed. Afterward I wondered if my dog realized she had gotten a surprise treat during the night or if she just thought she had buried a bone under the bed and had forgotten about it. Either way the Tooth Fairy supplied treat was appreciated. Although her tongue is not exactly out, you can definitely see it, so I think this still counts as a Tongue Out Tuesday photo.
Today Sadie and I are celebrating our 3rd Blogiversary!
The blog has continued to grow over the last three years slowly, but surely. While my statistics aren’t quite where I’d like them to be yet, I keep reminding myself that slow and steady wins the race. Most importantly, I keep growing and learning, meeting new people and discovering new facets of the blogging and pet industries. And Sadie and I continue to use blogging as our motivation to go on new adventures and tackle new challenges together. Sadie’s Instagram has definitely grown quite a bit over the last year as I spent some time getting to know that platform. And with Instagram came a focus on growing my photography skills. It’s been both fun and frustrating to explore more advanced photography equipment and techniques. It still takes a bit of luck, having the camera ready at the right place, at the right time, and in the right light, but I’m getting better at achieving the picture in my head. Sadie’s also happy because with my newest camera I seem to get the photos I need faster and she gets to her favorite part of the photo shoot that much sooner – the praise for a job well done.
