International Animal Blogging Event

Heads up, furiends. I'm working on my 1st ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL ANIMAL BLOGGING EVENT. It will take place, right here, on this blog, beginning April 1st and ending on April 18th, when all the winners of the free giveaways will be announced. I will accept links March 31- April 10th. We can all come together and have lots of fun. The rules are quite simple. If you want to participate, you have to place the event's logo on your sidebar, email me a link to the post with the event's logo (yes same logo but on your actual post) and instructions for your readers. You just have to figure out your one or more free giveaways--that's up to you. I will then glance at your post and if it's G-rated and satisfies the two conditions, I'll post it on my blog for all the others to share and be able to visit with ease. Those of you who don't want to give away anything can still participate. You can just use the links to get to meet new furiends and if you like, leave a comment (only one per post) so that you can become eligible to get the free giveaways. This is an event for bloggers. This is important as we, the active participants, will need to contact you at the end of the event to find out where to mail the prizes. We are all going to be winners here. We'll either gain new friends or prizes or both.

Until then: TELL ALL YOUR FURIENDS! Any and all critters are welcome, that would include anything from tiny sugar gliders, to crazy coyotes and wooly mammoths. SPREAD THE WORD and let's have some fun!

I am looking for a cool badge/logo and a catchy name/acronym (such as: International Animal Blogging Event/IABE, or All Critters United/ACU etc). Since I came to you my close furiends feel free to brainstorm with me. 

Oh, you may wanna check out my post on a different worldwide bloggers' event, One World One Heart from which I got my inspiration, and for which I am grateful. Here's the link: OWOH

On my PSA on the dangers of hitchhiking Remington left me the following comment: 
Hey Twink -- that sounds like fun! I am going to go and try to get into someone's shirt! Should be interesting! I will let you know how it turns out....or maybe you will have to come and bail me out....

You probably know I love a good laugh and I was tickled at the thought of Remi in anybody's shirt. Remington, did you mean...

Like this?

Or like that?

Because anything is possible in Blogland!

PS: It has come to my attention that Hope and Greyz, in corroboration with Fumbled Returns, are running a fun contest with great prizes. Check it out! It's titled, Fumbled Returns Mutt Madness Contest.

Whooooie, Twinkie.. I don't know about that being together in the shirt thingy. Gunther may not like it much. Today he was talking about seeing you in a Bikini... NOT a SHARED SHIRT. I'm just sayin'.
This sounds like a very much exciting project you have planned. I hope lots of Dawgs join in the fun.

Twinkie, I've been playin' on the beach and wishin' you were here. Get your tiny hieny back to the U.S. and come play at the beach with me!

Licks and hugs,

Hi Twinkie,
Your IAB Event sounds like fun.
Looking forward to seeing the logo you come up with.
Thanks for giving Mutt Madness a shout out.

We are very excited about the event you are hosting. We are definitely going to participate... especially after you mentioned Sugar Gliders! We are in love with these little animals and have wanted one for years.... we weren't able to get one, so we tried our hand with a tiny animal the dwarf hamster. We named her Skeeter after Momma's Family and Skeeter was the meanest little animal. Bit me many times and drew blood! We took good care of Skeeter... but one day she was found at the bottom of her cage, she was unresponsive. Poor girl died. That's when I decided I should stick with dogs... maybe kitties and that's it!

Mango said...

I am a little confused by your event, but hopefully it will all become clear as you explain more.


Nadine said...

Either that's a giant hooman with Remington in the second pic or else he magically shrunk himself down to get into that shirt, cuz we all know how big Remington is!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

That Remington dude is pretty funny.It would have to be a pretty hoooge hooman to pick him up hitchin'!! Your extravaganza sounds fab. The folks & we will be in the middle of our yearly trek northward,but will try to touch base with you off & on.
Smooches from pooches,

Ina in Alaska said...

We would like to see if anyone enters a Tazmanian Devil since the event is open to all critters!! Tee Hee Hee....

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Twink, today has been a work day for our mum and she is unable to grasp all the details of your competition.
She says this happens when you get old..........and you are feeling tired............!
We will get her to read it again at the end of the week when she doesn't work and she might be in a better position to understand!
love and kisses

Dory and the Mama said...

So very pawesome Twinkie...and Mama is rethinking her crafty thingy and is going to rework it to fit with your idea.

We will get back with you after Mama get's home from her Spring Break!


JackDaddy said...

Oh my, Remington can't decide if he's going to be big or small! :)

Sagira said...

Your blog event sounds like fun!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That sounds pretty cool Twink.. Mom isn't to good at this stuff but she will love watching...
As for zoomies in the house, Mom says we do get away with it only because the Red's can't hear her yelling at them..

Big Sloppy Kisses

The Thundering Herd said...

What a cool sounding event. And, at that time of year, we are producing mass quantities of excess fur which we sure people will find as a pawsome prize. Ok, maybe not.

Deborah said...

Remington always looks awesome! He is even cute in hats! Your blog event looks like fun. It sounds like it is just to meet new bloggers??? I will give something fun away but, how would I do that, I am wondering if I would put all who leaves a message in a dog bowl and pull out a name? Would that work????

Maggie and Mitch said...

We're not sure we're understanding all of the contest rules, Twink, but it does sound like fun!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

I would luvs to play! But I'm kinda confused about how to do it, too. Does it involve a ball or a stuffie of some kind? Can you explain it just an eensy bit more?

I wonder if maybe Remington got in that shrinking machine they're talking about over at Dennis' place.

PeeEssWoo: Mom will attempt to decipher the projekht later this week - her brains are a bit ovFURskhrambled right now!

houndstooth said...


Those pictures of Remington are hilarious!

We're a little confuzzled about the contest, too. Could you explain it a little more for those of us who nap a lot?

Thundering Herd hair as a prize?! You mean I could actually sniff and touch the greatness of Rusty? I feel a little faint!


Oskar said...

It sounds like a blast. My mom person does OWOH every year.

I hope we get some wooly mammoths to participate!

Remington said...

Twink -- After today anything is possible! I probably was in someone's shirt. Check it out tomorrow -- I am just a little messed up right Dr. sure knows how to party!
I'll have Beth check out the contest thingy....

Benny and Lily said...

I'm scared of that thing in the shirt..BOL

Twix said...

Twink, you are so sweet! This sounds like a lotta fun and I can't wait! I'm really excited about the prospect of winning a copy of your book ;o) giggle!
I sure have missed you but hopefully all the icky stuff is over at my house and I won't have to be gone again.

Love the Remington in a shirt photos!!!

Although I'm enthusiastic, I'm not sure that I totally understand your event. Can you give an example of what a post would be like for your event?

Sorry to be so dense...

Mr Koda MD said...
