Second Blogoversary!

Pssst.... pssst..... Thanks!

Two and a half years ago I had no idea what a blog was.
One day, my mom was looking for a harness for me. The ones we have here are boring and not the best ones. So, she was surfing the Internet and she typed “Harness for Dachshunds”… she did not find them. But she found The Dachsies Rule blog. She clicked the link and started reading it. She loved it. Then she clicked the links they had and she loved all of them. One day she found the DWB Directory and… Wow! Her world changed. She went there every day to read more and more blogs. After 6 months she decided to start a blog for me. She sent the info to DWB and 2 days later I was the member #454. To this day we have 1233 members! Thanks to Opy and her wonderful parents for creating this pawesome place. It has been 2 years since then. The first two friends who post a comment in my entry were Peanut and Hana. We were so happy! That was the beginning. Since then, I have made lots and lots of friends all around the world.

Many of you have sent me pawesome presents. Thanks to you I have tasted delicious treats and I have played with amazing toys. Thanks a lot for that.

Since we don’t have here pet stores, there are no nice toys or treats. When one of you celebrate your birthday I’d love to send you something but there is nothing good here. And that makes me feel sad. I can only offer you my good wishes and my heart. And it is true… I offer my heart to you all.

It has been 2 years full of good times and sad ones too. We have said hello to new members and good bye to the ones who have gone to the Bridge. We have prayed for the ones who need it. We have shared virtual parties. Contests. Christmas Card Exchanges. Advices. Recipes. Everything.

I live in a country that has a lot of problems. Bad problems. You name something bad… and it happens here. Besides that, it is a country that is not animal friendly. With no laws for us and no respect for us. But I have a wonderful family who loves me and respects me. I don’t know where I’d be now if not for my mom and my grandparents.
And I have you all… my second family.

Thanks a lot for these two years. (And many more to come).
Thanks to you I am celebrating my Second Blogoversary!
Thanks a lot for your friendship.

Have a good night

Hi, Lorenza -

Happy second blogoversary to you! Please don't feel sad that you can't give us presents or treats because being our friend is more important.

We are glad that you are part of a great family. We love the way your Grandma makes dresses for you. We hope you are having a good weekend.

Feliz Segundo Bloganiversário, Lorenza!!
Adoro ler suas aventuras e adoro você e sua família!!
Obrigado por ser tão amiga de todos nós!!



Oh Lorenza, don't ever worry about not being able to send any of us anything. Your friendship is the greatest gift of all. We found out about DWB too through Dachsie's Rule and as you know they are my best friends and Sammy is my fella. You were the first person we went to visit after we joined. You were my brother Toby's one true love you know. Do you gave a boyfriend now? George looks jist like Toby amd he thinls your kinda cute.

Thanks for being my friend and we love you....Mona & Mommy too!!

Huggies too!!

Hi Lorenza! Happy Blogoversary to you!!! Wow, two years... time sure flies. Hee hee, I was one of the first dogs to post a comment on your bloggy :-)

We will always remember you as Lorenza, the doggie who wears dresses.

Happy 2nd Blogoversary!

Southbay Girl said...

Happy 2 year Blogoversary!! How exciting!! Mom and I are very lucky to have you as a friend!!



Teddy said...

We're so glad to have you in our blogging community. I wish more doggies in Mexico could be so lucky as you are. It is sad that you don't have pet stores where you live. But you've got a mom who loves you a whole lot and a gorgeous bunch of dresses. (Mom says your wardrobe is way better than what she has..hee hee!)

I hope you keep blogging for a long time. We enjoy reading about your adventures.

Happy Blogoversary Lorenza!
You made my Mummy leaky :)
You were one of my first friends and still one of my favorite blogs to read.
As you are aware I am now dating Checkers. He sent me a furry pretty dress the other day, but unfortunately it is too small so his Mummy asked me to Paw it Forward to another pup. As soon as I layed eyes on it I thought of you, so I asked Mummy to send it to you with your presents from my 100th post contest. She will be posting them out this week. I hope you like the dress, and I hope it fits! :)
Big licks to you

Happy 2nd blogoversary, Lorenza!

There's no pet stores around your area? But all this time, I thought that your beautiful dresses were bought in pet stores... You mom made them?

Aki and Poopie said...

aw Lorenza... you made us cry there.. you are such an angel, do you know that? and to be blessed with your mum and grandma surely is one of the best plans that God had made for you.

your parents are wonderful people who are worth emulating. I too, share the sadness that you have in our country. in a place where the laws protecting is existing yet no0t upheld. everyday is a battle for us to prove to people that us dogs are not mere inventories, emotionless burlgar alarms and all misconceptions that people who have not experienced opening their hearts to animals, think.

thank you for being our friend. it is your good nature that makes you so loveable and popular and you deserve celebrating your blogaversary with all of us, your friends!

take care always, and even without the pressies, toys and treats, what matters the most to us is your friendship and your tireless support and kindess.

it is so good to have met you!

drooly kisses,

I'm certainly glad that you entered into the blogging world. You're too cute to remain hidden in Mexico, and now that the world has seen you, it loves you too!

Byron y Xinver said...

Enhorabuena... La verdad, pensábamos que eras más veterana en los blogs. Es que fuiste de las primeras blogueras que conocimos cuando empezamos nosotros (Bueno fue el byron), junto con Verdi y Gaucho... No hay muchos paises que valoren las mascotas, bueno hay que irse a centroeuropa o más al norte para eso, pero somos conscientes que en tu país es peor que aquí. Piensa también la buena labor que haces con tu familia... Muchos besos y que cumplas muchos más.

Byron y Xinver said...

Ohhhh, nos hemos dado cuenta que nuestro blog comenzó el 28.06.07 pronto dos años también!!!
