Last New Year I was just an ordinary dog. I lived in a wonderful forever home with a mom and dad who loved me and four kitties who despised me (one stayed under the bed for a whole year).
Then in March mom decided I should be on Twitter. Yes, at first I was one of those #TwitterSlaves, forced to have a Twitter account. We dipped in to Twitter here and there but mom was very busy getting her work Twitter account established and until we found Seesmic she had a hard time keeping track of both accounts.
We had a hard time figuring out what was going on. Every once in a while the Twitter avatars would look really funny. Right after we started everyone had all these green decorations on. Mom is part Irish so she got it but she had no idea what a #pawpawty was. In fact we were clueless until we finally asked someone before the Cinqo de Mayo pawpawty. @Flicka47 helped us remember all of this in her blog tonight.
Funny - mom had enough imagination to have me on Twitter but not enough to understand #pawpawty at first. But we really caught on for #weekendroadtrip. If you anipals remember, I was DJing in the middle of the night and Twitter broke. I kept spinning the tunes.
Mom and I have met so many wonderful and caring people on Twitter. We want to adopt every dog and kitty that needs rescuing and we try to help where we can. We also see how wonderful the support system is for sick and dying anipals. Well, not for the anipals but for the humans who are broken hearted. What a wonderful thing. Mom remembers when pets before me crossed to the bridge and so many people just didn't understand how heart wrenching it was. All of the anipals understand and that really helps. We have so much fun here.
The only drawback is that most of the people mom knows thinks she is crazy. But that is okay, since you all know she isn't.
Here is to a wonderful New Year with all my friends on Twitter and Facebook!
