The Deja Vu Blogfest, and A Celebration of Mutts

DL Hammons of Cruising Altitude 2.0 is hosting the Deja Vu Blogfest on December 16th, and I think the fest sounds like a lot of fun. All you have to do is re-post your favorite blog post, or one that you think didn't get enough attention when it was originally posted. It's hard to beat a blogfest where you don't even have to write a new post! Since I have been an extremely lazy blogger lately, this is a great deal for me. :D

I was really glad to come upon DL's site (thanks to a link from my buddy LG Smith) as I have really enjoyed the 7 x 7 Link Awards that have been going around the blogosphere, and this blogfest reminded me of those awards. It's been great to be able to catch up on posts that were published before I started blogging, or just posts I may have missed due to getting behind on my blog reading. So I think a blogfest dedicated to showcasing old or favorite posts is a fantastic idea, and I'm really looking forward to participating.

To sign up, just visit DL's site here. I hope to see everyone on December 16th!

Also, I just learned that today is National Mutt Day, a day created to raise awareness about mixed-breed dogs who are waiting for their forever homes, and to celebrate the awesomeness of mutts. I couldn't let this day pass without honoring the greatest mutt in the world, my Clancy.


Hugs and pets to all the fabulous mutts out there, and Happy Friday to all. I hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Awww! great to see Clancy!

    I will try to pluck up courage to register. It sounds a great idea :)

  2. This sounds like a fun blogfest! Thanks for getting the word out, and Clancy looks adorable! Julie

  3. Have a Happy Mutt Day, Mr. Clancy! :-)

  4. I didn't know today was National Mutt Day. All the Rish babies are mutts, so it's nice to know there is a day to celebrate how special and unique they are. And your Clancy sure is a cutie.

  5. @CaroSCAT, you should definitely register. You have such a great blog!

    @LynnMarie, thanks!

    @Julie, thank you! I hope you sign up, I think it will be fun. :)

    @Janel, Clancy says thanks! :D

    @Jocelyn, I didn't know either until I noticed it on the calendar this morning. I'd never heard of it before. Your babies are all so adorable!

  6. I'm with you, Julie. Any blogfest that means I can be lazy and put up an old post for a day is the blogfest for me. :)

    Clancy truly is one cute dog. Happy mutt day.

  7. Proud owner of two mutts and I love 'em more than life!

  8. Clancy's a beauty.
    Happy Friday to both of you, Julie.

  9. @LG, yeah, you really can't beat this blogfest. Happy mutt day to you as well. :D

    @EJ, I feel the same! :)

    @Robyn, thanks!

  10. Hi Julie! That blogfest sounds great, and oh I'm sorry I didn't know today was National Mutt Day! All three of our dogs have been mutts, and I swear they have the best personalities!! Happy Weekend to you and Clancy!! Woof, woof from Vern! :)

  11. You always find the best blogfests - thank God you do, because otherwise I never would! I'm in for this one - I'm so tired this month that I love the idea of recycling!

  12. Clancy is so gorgeous. They really are a part of our families aren't they.

  13. @Becky, woof back to Vern! :D I hope you guys have had a great weekend.
