it's time for GABE!

my new friend miss twinkie is hosting a super awesome event called the global animal blogging event -or- GABE!  it starts tomorrow and runs through sunday, april 18th!  i am filled up with excitements about meeting lots of new friendz from all over the world and reading their exciting bloggies!  it will be most ridiculous amounts of fun, and there are going to be some awesome give-aways also!  what's not to like about that?  if you would like to participate, you still have time!!  you can be a "passive" or "active" participant.  clicky here to find out more right now!!!
what's gonna happen is that tomorrow, miss twinkie will start linking participating bloggies to her GABE page for everybuddy to go visit.  all you have to do is clicky on my GABE icon at the top right of my bloggie, and it will take you to miss twinkie's GABE participants list.  then you can go visit all the bloggies and make new friendz!  some of the GABE participants (the "active" ones) will be givin' away pressies, so make sure you leave comments for a chance to win cool thingies!
i <3 pressies, so i am gonna be an "active participant" in GABE.  i am gonna give away a special somethin' to one lucky ducky who will be drawn from my "woofs" at random.  all you have to do is leave a "woof" for me!  if you want, i'd love to know why you decided to start a bloggie and what is your most favoritest thing about blogging.
now for the excellent pressie.  what might i be giving away, you ask??  the winner will receive a totally fab collar of his/her choosing from my fellow south carolinian hooman friend over at pecan pie puppies.  you can see her entire collection at  here are a couple of her lovely collars just to show you some examples:

thanks bunches, miss twinkie, for organizing GABE!!  i'm lookin' forward to reading everybuddy's bloggies and meeting some new friendz!

The most amazing fun, you said? Abso-lutely! This is my Woof to you. One woof and I'm eligible to win such a cool collar? I think I love this event.

Frankie Furter said...

Hi Mr. Booker Man!! I think the very much bestest thingy about dawgblogs is how we can all laugh and cry together. I started my blog beclaws I wanted to practice my writing skills. Who knew that I would end up with two girrrlfurends that have become my fiances????

houndstooth said...

Well, Mom says she started blogging because when she brought me home it was just a few weeks after her first greyhound, Treat, had passed away. There were so many wonderful stories about Treat that she wished she'd been able to share them all, and she didn't want to miss sharing stories about me and my life as I grew up. We love reading everybody's stories everyday and seeing what they've been up to!

Those collars are fabulous!


Tucker said...

Well WOOF!

I decided to blog my growth as a baby cause Momma knew I was gonna grow really fast. Then, I met cool bloggie friends and starting blogging about my adventures and my struggles. I think my favorite thing about blogging is that we all get to share important doggie information. For example, Dexter & Mango helped me learn about eating rocks & how it's bad for you, Honey taught me how to play the cupcake pan game, and Brutus teaches you the importance of dental care. That's just a few examples but I have learned something from everyones bloggie.

Toby- The dog with a blog said...

OMD, those collars are furry cute!

Can you sneak me a couple extra entries... ?

We started blogging to get the word out about Guide dogs in training (note the web address of our blog – guidedogawareness!).
We have come along way from 2007, and our fav thing is meeting new friends!!


Hi Booker,

We needs to get busy and sign up! We luuuv those collars! Grrreat job, Booker's mommy!

Riley and Star.

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...


Furry nice!

We are looking furward to seeing all the GABE fun - we had to pass this year but we did give Twinkie and GABE a shout out on the blog - we just have too much going on to have given it the attention it warranted -


Santa and Minnie said...

This GABE is so much fun! We are going to be busy visiting blogs and trying our luck to see if we can win something.

Those collars are beautiful and we are trying our luck to win it. We started our blogs as a diary to record our daily happenings where we can look back and to remember those times. As we went along, our favoritest thing about blogging is definitely making friends.

BRUTUS said...

Hey there Booker! So nice to meet a new labradude friend (my brother Mason is a chocolate lab) - came over to see you fromTwinkie's GABE links. We're playing too, just a little slower to get up our post than you gunners!! Fantastic prize you have there, one can never have enough collars, you know!

mayziegal said...

Booker! I thinks you and me were separated at birth cuz I'm givin' away a gift certificate for a Collar Mania collar! Isn't that a crazy coincidence (that's a hard word to spell)? Oh, and there's one other thing I'm giving away but you have to come look.

As for your question - I guess I just thought it would be fun. And it is! And my favoritest thing about it is meeting sweet new furends like you!

Wiggles & Wags,

Ina in Alaska said...

WOOF(s). Those collars are just gorgeous!!!! So much talent out there. We are just going to be GABE viewers because our mom is a slacker. Not really. Like Khyra's mom, she has way too much going on..... work, spring cleanup around our mansion, "stuff" but she plans to enjoy GABE as a spectator. Have fun every furry one!!! xoxo Toby, Ginger, Jeter and Miss Halle

Deborah said...

Hey there! Nice to meet you and I love the collars!
Anywho, come on over to my blog, I'm also having a give-a-way for GABE!
I started blogging because....I read the book "Julia" and it sounded like tons of fun and guess what...IT IS!!! I love all my bloggy friends!
Have fun and have a great day!

Dory and the Mama said...

What wonderful collars Mr. Bookerman...I would just LOVE to have one!!

We have seen you here and there, but found you via Twink's GABE Link's and think you have a pawesome bloggie!!
Dory and Bilbo

Mack and Mia said...

Hey Bookerman!

Do they make collars in XXXXL? because you know Mia is a 'big' girl...BOL...just kidding...well...not about the 'big' part.

We started to bloggy because our momma said that Mia and I are so crazy that she wanted to share our fun times with everydoggy everywhere! She also is loving the bonds and support that everyone gives and takes and she says she feels like she knows everydoggy in real life.

Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia

Princess said...

bookerman, my momma bought me one of those collars when she and my daddy took engagement pictures with me! They're so pretty!

I started blogging so my foster mom and her friends could stay up to date on what was going on in my new life. :o)

K9friend said...

Great to meet you Bookerman! Stop by to visit soon!


JD and Max said...

Hi Bookerman - oh, this GABE looks amazing, we're in! Good to meet you!

We started blogging by accident really - our human used to blog and when we came along she started writing about us most of the time and before long that's all folks wanted to know about - so we took over completely and now have our own blog, he he he!

Like Minnie and Santa our favourite part is making friends, it's great. We live in the UK and our humans have even visited Santa, Minnie and Christmas earlier this year when they visited KL - how cool is that?!

Big schnauzer snuggles - oh, and love your blog by the way - JD and Max.

Nubbin' Tails said...

Martine said...

Hi booker man!! Nice to meet you!!

This is Martine & the kiddlets from I Need a Sugar Fix.

We started to blog about a year ago when we had our rescue pup Sugar the bull terrier... she was constantly doing funny things and getting into trouble that I thought I best record it somewhere... thus the creation of I need a Sugar fix! We no longer have sweet Sugar... but we do have Candy and Captain Crunch! Our favorite thing is getting comments and reading all our furiends bloggies!

Dog Foster Mom said...

i'd love to know why you decided to start a bloggie and what is your most favoritest thing about blogging.

Hi Booker Man - I have seen your comments on other blogs and am glad thanks to GABE that I finally took the time to stop by and say hi. It's great to make new friends! I started blogging as a way to keep track of what foster pets I brought home. But now I also just do it because its fun!

silvieon4 said...

You are a handsome one! Love those collars. You are not far from me, relatively speaking... I am in VA.

Booker man, you are very handsome! Mabel Lou is part lab too! We started blogging because Mom loved to write. Hope you'll check out our creekhiker blog during GABE!

The Musketeers said...

Wow ! We just love collars.
Oh hi, nice to meet you ! We are new here ;)

Erin and GuidePupPompei said...

WOOF! Those are great collars!!

Tank said...

Booker Man - those are very stylish collars. I do have a question though. You say they're made by pecan pie puppies, right? Do the puppies include a pecan pie with each collar? I do hope the answer is yes. Regardless, they must be extremely talented. I hope I win.

LUCKY LUKE said...

First let me say... boy who call himself "THE" Booker Man is tops by me... the Luke!

Best fing bout the GABE is makin the new friends, and if I was to win one of those MOST awesome collars from the pecan pie puppies' the Mom... that would be very befittin, since I have real penchant for the pecans!

You ask why I blog... well, in my first life, I live in backyard until 8.5 years of age when the peoples drop me off at shelter on a counta I all ways bolt inside durin thunderstorm, and they can't stand it any more.

I was in shelter for 8 monfs. Peoples there loved me so much they shuffled me round to keep me from the big nap. And then finally... they contact the Golden Retriever of Houston (hundreds of miles away) and they come get me and wifin two weeks...

I have new life with new the Mom and also BLOG! It do not get better than that! Just sayin.

Speakin of the blog, I can't wait to read more of the yours!

wif love from the Luke

Bella the Westie said...
