OK, I’ve been about 98.9% faithful to this whole “Wordless Wednesday” format. A few times I think I’ve included captions, but for the most part I’ve posted little more than a title and a picture. Today’s offering is breaking with that for a very important reason, so I hope you’ll bear with me. If not, scroll down to the end for today’s wordless picture!
This time, a year ago, I went live with the first post on Smoredogs! I took the leap after getting very encouraging noises from a blogger friend and have continued to get encouraging noises from friends made since then.
On the whole it’s been a terrific experience. I’ve met and talked with more new people this last year than I had in many years prior and have had fun sharing my experiences with my dogs, cats, and the occasional guinea pigs. I’ve enjoyed sharing the few training tips I have, and participating in the welcoming world of pet blogging.

Even the one huge unpositive thing, the untimely death of middle cat Flick (maybe especially that) has been processed and put into context by writing about it and putting it out there for the world to see.
So, what now? Well, it’s fairly obvious that the blog has mostly devolved into Wordless Wednesdays; a hazard for an introvert in my line of work is the capacity for non-work related decision making and creativity is curtailed sharply for much of the year. I would like to have enough ideas for one, original, written piece per week, and I do have some ideas I’ve been stringing along for a while, but time will tell if I have enough. I’m sure I’ve got enough in me for once a month, at least! Also, since it has been a year, and now have some things to refer back to and revisit, I’ll be doing some more “Throwback Thursdays” in 2017. In fact, you might want to check back tomorrow…
So from me, and my critters (if they had the abstract reasoning to comprehend the Internet, as well as the language skills to wish things upon the people using it) Happy 2017!
And now, as promised, today’s Wordless Wednesday!
