Assistance Dog Blog Carnival Call For Submissions

Assistance Dog Blog Carnival Badge

Welcome to the 8th round of the assistance Dog Blog Carnival!

For those who do not know what the Assistance Dog Blog Carnival is, here’s a little bit of background information.

Since many of the ruled by paws followers are not assistance dog users, we’d like to personally invite you all to check out the link above, and come join your first (and hopefully not last) Assistance Dog Blog Carnival.

So, here’s the scoop…

The topic for the 8th round of the ADBC is, “MARCHIN’ TO YOUR OWN DRUM”.

Before you get worried, here are some examples to get you going:

Does your assistance dog fit the traditional mould? (does he or she have any special quirks or behaviours?)
Does your dog do things differently from past partners (or the partners of friends)?
Why did you choose to go with a program dog after your owner-trained one retired? (or vice versa)
Why did you choose a non-traditional breed for your partner?
Did you have to overcome any sort of resistance from family, friends or employers when deciding to partner with an assistance dog?
Have you witnessed any unique or special assistance dogs in action? (what made them stand out?)
Did you have preconceived notions of what an assistance dog should look like, only to have them changed by witnessing one in action or reading about one?

The above, are just a sample of the things you could write about, the options are nearly endless – we can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.

For anyone who knows the ruled by paws gang, you can guess where this topic came from. “MARCHIN’ TO YOUR OWN DRUM”, is something we do on a daily basis here. We invite you all to think about the ways in which you and your four-legged partner do things your own way – and let’s celebrate!

Submissions for the8th Assistance Dog Blog Carnival are due by 7:47pm on July 29th – why 7:47 you ask? Because Cessna thinks it’s a great time). I’ll be posting the finished product on July 31st, but if anyone requires a little extra time, just let me know (I don’t mind adding extra submissions as they arrive).

To submit your post, please comment here with the following information:
1. Name of your blog
2. Your name (as you want it to appear in the carnival)
3. Name of your post
4. URL for the post

We ask as a courtesy that you link back to this post and to the carnival home page in your post.

If you have any trouble leaving a comment here, contact me at sillabyquist at gmail dot com or you can reach us on Twitter at ruledbypaws.

So, I think I’ve covered everything. It’s now your turn. Come join us and help make the 8th round, the biggest and best we’ve seen so far!

***Even if you don’t think you can submit an entry, please take a moment and tell your blog followers and friends**

  2. I’m sort of on the fence as to how well this fits the theme, but it was a fun and cathartic post to write nonetheless. Anyway, I can edit it (and probably will) to fine tune it more into the theme if you think I need to.
