My 7 Links, the Bailey Way

Sometimes I get nominated to take part in tasks that go around the blogging world. Thanks to those of you who have nominated me — you know who you are. I get so busy during the day, that I don’t have a chance to complete them on time. I will definitely get to all of them sooner or later. But for today, I’m going to complete this latest challenge that I received.

Before I begin the challenge, I wanted to share my 301st post with you. THIS IS IT! Teehee!

Another thing… I totally missed LiveStrong this year! I would have so participated, ’cause we have a couple of family and friends who have been touched by this awful monster. I figured it was better late than never to mention a few of them (I’m only 2 days off). I would like to honor the following in memory: my Great Grandma L and Mickey. I also want to mention my hu-Grandma, who has had the “C” monster visit her a few times, the first when she was just a little girl (non-hodgekins lymphoma). In her adult life, she’s had breast cancer, and skin cancer (melanoma). We are very thankful that she is still here to share her life with us.

One more thing… Our friends over at The Thundering Herd just lost one of their own, their boy Kodiak. We’ll keep you in our thoughts and prayers. πŸ™‚

Now for the challenge…

Today’s challenge is called My 7 Links. Thanks to my friends Jen & Elka at The Elka Almanac, for nominating me to take part in this great challenge!

THE GOAL of My 7 Links, is to “unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.” I’ve been blogging since December, 2010, so I must have a few posts I could dig up for this post. πŸ™‚

There are some RULES…

1. Blogger is nominated to take part
2. Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
3. Nominate 5 other bloggies!

Bailey & Nala’s Choices for the following post categories… Yep, I had to have some help with these. Well I do have more than 300 posts — yay (Nala’s doing a happy doggie dance)! That’s 301 posts counting today’s post! Can you tell how excited I am? πŸ˜‰

Your Most Beautiful Post…

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way Wordless (Video) Wednesday: Sisters: Even though this post is really just a video, it speaks louder than words. Posted just 7 months after I came to live with my family, it shows just how far Nala and I have come. When I first joined the family at 3 months old, Nala wanted absolutely nothing to do with me. My friends over at White Dog Diary Online, told me to be patient… and I was. Nala used to run from me if I came near her, or if I even just looked at her. This video proves how much more comfortable Nala is around me… and it makes me happy. πŸ™‚

Your Most Popular Post…

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way Birthday and Ice Cream: I’m not gonna lie — this wasn’t my most popular post. But my most popular post just happened to belong to another category below (Most Helpful Post). So, I’m using my next most popular post, which was my mommy’s birthday! I guess what made this post so popular, was that Nala and I got to have ice cream! For every birthday in our family, the Happy Birthday song means ice cream! I guess Nala and I aren’t the only ones who love ice cream, huh? πŸ˜‰

Your Most Controversial Post…

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way Thundershirt Review, Part VII: Hmmm… this category stumped me, ’cause I really don’t post anything controversial. The only posts I could think of, were the ones where I wrote how the Thundershirt didn’t work for Nala. The shirt apparently works for many doggies, but Nala sadly is not one of them. I posted at least 7 full reviews on the Thundershirt, but it was this particular post where I came to the conclusion that the shirt did not work for Nala. Is it a controversial post? Maybe not. But the Thundershirt itself sure could cause a controversy! You can read all of my Thundershirt reviews on my Product Reviews page.

Your Most Helpful Post…

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way Mad Words Wednesday: I created this post when I discovered that my photos and the photos of many of my bloggie friends, had been stolen and linked directly on an image website. Since my mommy has had websites since the mid-1990’s, she’s had the unfortunate pleasure of experiencing copyright infringement, and so helped provide a lot of helpful information for this particular post. Last I knew, sadly, this website was up and running under a different name.

A Post Whose Success Surprised You…

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way Wordless Wednesday: Girl Curls: This post shows the before and after pics from pool time! My family loves how curly my fur gets after it’s wet (especially the fur behind my ears), so I thought I would share a couple of photos. I didn’t realize that so many of you love curls! πŸ™‚

A Post You Feel Didn’t Get the Attention it Deserved…

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way So Easily Amused (& Video): I love this post, mostly because, I love balloons! When my mommy brought home this huge musical balloon, I took hold of the string and danced all around the living room. Well, maybe I didn’t dance. But I did spin around! I love watching this video over and over again. This balloon is long gone, but mommy kept the musical part to the balloon (it sits on the kitchen counter). Every time it gets hit, the music goes off and it definitely gets my attention!

The Post that You are Most Proud of…

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way Yay! Pool Day!: I picked this particular post because I know how proud my mommy is of it. She managed to capture everything about that day that I absolutely loved. In just a few photos, you’ll see just how much I love to water play. Here’s another post with a video, that shows just how much I enjoy the water. πŸ™‚

Now it’s your turn!

Nala and I nominate the following 5 bloggie friends to take the My 7 Links challenge… We tried to pass this challenge on to friends whom we haven’t yet nominated for anything (if you’ve already taken this challenge, please let us know so we can pick someone else in your place — unless you wish to take it again! Teehee!).

1. Hound Girl
2. Da Weenies of Florida
3. My Brown Newfies
4. Brown Dog CBR (Originally nominated Two French Bulldogs, but they already had the honor.)
5. Life at Golden Pines

By the way…

Did any of our friends ever get a visit from The Fairy Hobmother?? I’d love to know!

My 7 Links, the Bailey Way

Have fun, friends! πŸ™‚

Happy Tuesday woofs & hugs! <3 ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl) P.S… If you’re a human who blogs about your furry, or a furry who blogs about your human… or even a furry who blogs about your life… I invite you to follow me via Google Friend Connect (see box in the right-hand column –>), and join me on Facebook. Please let me know you’ve visited — I love reading other blogs and making new friends. <3

    We hope you have another 30,000 posts just as sharing and wonderful as the first 301 have been! We enjoy the glimpses into your lives and the special “Bailey” and “Nala”-ness you add to our community. Congratulations.

  6. Hi Y’all,

    Nope, no visits from the Fairy Hobmother so I can’t really say who she is, although you seem to know her well.

    So sad about Kodiak. Stopped and left my condolences.

    Wow, guess I’ll have to break down and figure out my archives now. I’ve been putting it off for awhile. Thanks for thinking of me for the honor.

    Y’all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
