On the canine front, Dogs With Blogs (DWB) is taking new members. If you are an old member, you will need to visit them and register to be a member with the new DWB. We became a member back in June 2007 as DWB member #506. DWB had a total of 1395 members on the old blog list, before things came to a stop.
We noted only seven Collies and fourteen Shelties on the blog list. We'll concentrate on the collies. The seven collie blogs were Cal (008), Tosca (233), Tara (288), Key West Collies (506), Tatum (743), Dreamer (819) and Islay (675). Cal the first collie and lived in Frostbite Falls, MN. His first post was in September 2004 and his last post on April 2008. Tosca was the next DWB member and first posted in May 2006. Tosca developed a huge following when she blogged a lot. Since January 2009 Tosca has posted only five times though. Tara started posting in April 2006 and posted this year. Tara never was a prolific poster though. Tatum is the only smooth collie in the old DWB blog list. She started blogging around August 2007, and barks a lot about agility and collie rescues. She is one of our good pals. Then there was Dreamer, who blog life was short. His first posted in February 2008, posting six times in four months. Islay took over the blog of one of our bestest pals, Charlie the Sheltie in September 2010. We loved Charlie's blog, she was a grand old Sheltie Lady. We hope Islay keeps posting because we love the stories he and his mum tell. They are pawsome people.
We have since found other Collie blogs and two of them have registered as members on DWB. They are D's Collies, Lady I and Lady II, who we know very well; and Shikota, that stars fellow Holmhaven Collies Shiloh and Dakota.
