Welcome, animal lovers, to the Global Animal Blogging Event 2010!
As my regular followers know, I write often about my pets - our dog, Chunky, our cat, Buzz and our kittens, Ernie and Bert. When they all heard about the Global Animal Blogging Event 2010 and realized it would be a way to make friends with other pets in blogs, they looked at me with puppy-dog eyes and big-eyed kitty faces (you know, like Puss 'N' Boots in Shrek) and I knew I would participate. Also, my friend Holly and her pup Mabel Lou are in on the fun over at CreekHiker, and truth be told, they're really the ones who clued me in. Check out their blog, too, for a really cool glass giveaway!
If you haven't been here before, you probably have figured out that I'm a lampwork bead maker. I specialize in critter beads, ie. dogs, cats, turtles - pretty much anything with a face. So for my pet giveaway, I'm offering a handmade pet bead (made by me) of your pet. Now, there are a few breeds of dog I'm not as skilled at making, and if you happen to win and your pet falls into one of those trickier categories, then I'll just make you a fun dog bead (blue dogs are very fun) or something comparable. But if you have a Boston terrier, a pug, a wiener dog, a chihuahua . . . you're in luck! Either way, you'll get a pet bead from me.
All you have to do is leave a comment after this post, and be SURE to leave me a way to reach you if you win. Winners will be announced on April 18. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm really excited to be involved in the first year of this global pet blogging event. And get this - it's organized by a teacup chihuahua named Twinkie. Check out Twinkie's blog and book (yes, this little pooch has a book!) HERE. Then click the icon in my sidebar to visit more animal blogs in this global event!
