Dog Leader Mysteries blog is back

Dear Readers,

My apologies to you if you have clicked on our Dog. Leader Mysteries site, only to find our menu missing. After several hours, over a few days, I deleted a temporary menu for our blog. At first, I blanched. I yelped. Then I clicked on the Main. Menu.

Wowie zowie, my eyes rested our missing menu.

Can’t say when or why I couldn’t find the proper dashboard click to find the site menu options before. Yet I felt so overjoyed, I did a bit of a happy dance. Next, I sat and worked slowly through my options for menus. This Franklin Theme offers three or four menus.

Why the confusion?

Too much of a good thing turned out to be confusing.

After my happy dance, I plodded along one click at a time. Restoring my original menu took some doing, some pages had left the building, so to speak. Between reordering pages and posts, we find ourselves back in business.

Thank you for your patience.

Please look in again and see our new posts. Especially, Cindy Grant, our new guest blogger’s post,

ABC’s of Grooming Poodle Dogs



Sleeping pets, a reblog of Pet Chat

Pet Chat blog just followed Dog Leader Mysteries

Pet cuteness from a blog new to me. The writer, blogger, and pet advocate, not new to any of those three, shows wisdom, an understanding of dogs, and gives sound tips on pet care. So please visit her blog, Pet Chat- more on pets, dogs, cats, birds, and more.

So easy to follow bloggers on WordPress, that’s why I love it. 

BTW I found Pet Chat blog when she followed Dog Leader Mysteries on WordPress.

This is the one thing I will miss about WordPress.com, the wonderful world of WP blogs. To be able to quickly search for pet blogs or writing blogs to follow, plus being able to reblog a few seems to grow my community without trying too much. After all researching, editing, writing, revising, and copyediting then self-publishing takes loads of time. So I like anything that will connect me with other writers, bloggers, and animal lovers, fast.

"I'm the boss," said Paris.
Paris, our rabbit, wins over Sydney, our dog

Both our pets in the photograph above were adopted from local animal shelters. Paris lived with us for twelve years, an exceptionally long life for even a house rabbit. Rabbits in the wild probably live for about three years maximum (or so I’m told).

If you have a photograph of a sleeping pet, or a house rabbit you would like to share with Dog Leader Mysteries blog, please drop us a note in the comments.

We love your comments.

Thanks for reading,

Mutt Monday: Video of Big Puppy Dog

Just had to share this video of a big puppy dog. So please take one minute and watch this sweet “lap-dog” get a lap. I smiled much bigger after watching. Dog adoption saves a life. Plenty of terrific dogs find homes through dog rescues and animal shelters, but they need help sharing the message of how many great pets are waiting.

You could be the one who gets this lovely loving dog a home. So do it.

Make my day and save a life.

Of course, I am hoping you will share this puppy dog on WordPress, Facebook, etc. until he gets a home. The golden retriever and Labrador mix makes him super great for a family with children.

I believe we can get this puppy a home.

So please pass this on.

I’m not sure why, but despite having a weird schedule, I still use my time to watch cute videos up for adoption. If a photo says a thousand words, a video probably says twice as much, right? Anyway, I am totally smitten by these dogs up for adoption at the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter:

1. Eddie is a 7-month-old Golden Retriever Collie mix.

2. Caroline is an 8-year-old Pomeranian.

3. Alec is a 3-month-old Pekingese.

4. Paris is a 3-year-old Chihuahua.

5. Candy is a 7-year-old Spaniel Terrier mix.

6. Al Capone is a 1-year-old Welsh Corgi Terrier mix.

7. Lucy is a 1-year-old American Bulldog.

Now, remember to spread the word on these dogs before it’s too late! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact:
