I've made some new friends since I started writing this blog.  It's great to find other people out there with similar interests, and to read about their lives as well.  Here are some of the interesting people I've met through my blog:

Amanda - she lives in Minnesota, and she takes the best pictures ever.  I love this picture she took of her son at Halloween with her dog and two foster dogs.  She's also super-nice and gave me some photography hints and encouragement.  She fosters pit bulls, and has an adorable son.  You can visit her blog here.
Ellen - she is the founder of the St. Louis Senior Dog Project, and she finds homes for senior dogs like Sara.  Sara lived most of her life chained up outdoors in North Dakota, but thanks to Ellen and many other volunteers, Sara is now in a wonderful home.  Ellen takes in the senior dogs that many others give up on, and does an amazing job finding them homes.  It's great to hear about others in the St. Louis area that I may have never known about if it weren't for the Internet and blogging.  You can read more from Ellen's blog here

Sara - This time Sara is the human, and Layla is the dog.  I just checked out Sara's blog today when she left a recent comment on one of my blog posts, and I am very impressed (and jealous).  Not only has she adopted and then helped a dog with a lot of issues, but she also does all those things that interest me (dog training, obedience, rally, agility, etc) that I never seem to find time for.  You can check out her blog here.


And I would be remiss if I did not include my friends Angie and Rhonda.  I did not meet them through blogging, but they both write excellent blogs about rescue and they have become good friends of mine.

Angie not only inspired me to start this blog by reading hers, but she has always continued to give me help with rescue questions and photography questions. She's a professional photographer and puts up with my questions like "if I am using a lens that doesn't have a zoom, do I actually have to MOVE to take the picture?"  Seriously, I asked her this on Saturday, and not only did she not laugh at me, but she assured me that yes, I did actually have to move the camera and there was no secret button I didn't know about.  You can read her blog here.

Rhonda is one of the best writers I've ever met.  I always look forward to seeing new posts on her blog.  She's also an awesome photographer, and another crazy rescuer like me who takes care of too many dogs and cats, and loves every minute of it.  You can view her blog here.
