5 Pawsitively Awesome things about Pawsitively Pets

New year's resolutions--I may be in the minority, but I like them. Every year, it's a reminder to focus on something positive, to make a change that will be useful or healthy. Of course, sometimes it's the same old thing (lose weight), some are work-related (start my new book), some are personal (get organized!) When it comes to pet blogs, my resolution is to expand my horizons and discover new pet blogs to read and enjoy. I know there are many great ones out there I haven't yet discovered.

And that's where the Pet Bloggers Gift Exchange comes in. Hosted by Something Wagging this Way Comes, this is an opportunity to discover new blogs and encourage, compliment and share with other bloggers. I was randomly matched with Pawsitively Pets. So today, I'd like to introduce you to a blog "dedicated to all things animal"--whether it's an old favorite, or maybe a new pet blog to you.
