Assistance Dog Blog Carnival – Call for Entries

Assistance Dog Blog Carnival buttonCan I have your attention PLEASE!!

I would like to present the 17th round of the Assistance Dog Blog Carnival.

For those who do not know what the Assistance Dog Blog Carnival is, you can find an explanation and links to former rounds HERE.

As always, you do not need to be partnered with an assistance dog, your entry just needs to be related to the topic of service dogs.

The topic for this round is REGRETS.

When most people think of service dogs they think of all of the things that they do. They also think of how awesome it must be to be able to take your dog everywhere with you. No one ever thinks of the other side of the story. No one ever talks about the challenges, problems or difficulties with relying on an assistance dog.

Here’s your chance. Let’s educate the world about the other side of the service dog tale. Let’s be honest with each other, the service dog relationship is not always chocolate, roses and butterflies.

Let’s talk about our frustrations, our concerns, our disappointments. Let’s confess our deepest REGRETS when it comes to assistance dogs.

So, what do you REGRET…

do you ever wish you had chosen to remain dogless?
Do you ever wish you had a different breed?
Did you teach your dog something you wish you hadn’t?
Did you find something you wish you had trained your dog to do?
do you ever look back and wish you had done things differently?

Let’s be honest with one another, we’ve all got REGRETS.

The deadline for submissions is June 30th at 7:47pm. If you would like to send in an entry, but you need a bit more time, just let me know.

You are probably wondering how you submit your entry – just leave a comment on this post with your name, your blog’s name, your entry title and the URLs that go along with each.

Please let your friends know about the ADBC. Please help me revive the Assistance Dog Blog Carnival.

I look forward to reading and sharing your entries.


  1. Here is my entry on regrets… I expected too much and was let down. Yet once I embraced imperfection, I found hope!

  2. Here is my entry. It’s a concern that definitely got me to thinking this year.

  3. Here’s my post, woo, I got it in. Oh, Tansy is staring at me like “make with the viddles” so I’d better get this up there.
    Post is called A Public Apology to Trixie

    This should be interesting.

  7. I’m glad to see the deadline extension! I’ve been sick since Thursday and was afraid I’d miss it. I still need to add the ADBC logo and links, but was rushing to get it in and formatting takes me forever.
