  1. Well done, Hugh! And, I hope you had a fun and comfortable time over the holidays. Happy New Year to all four of you. I wanted to send you some wishes in comments earlier, but they were closed off. So, here you go…. May 2019 be everything you wish for! Xxx

    PS: I like the new look and user-friendliness of your blog as well.

    1. I closed the comments off on the ‘Help Me Raise £250 for the Dogs Trust’ Post as soon as the deadline for leaving links passed, Liesbet. However, your comments are always welcomed and I’m glad you left your comment here.

      Thank you so much for the feedback on the new look blog. You’re only the second person to have mentioned it.

      Wishing Mark and you a very happy, successful, healthy, and amazing 2019.

    1. Thank you for helping me achieve the target I set, Mary. I really appreciate that you shared the appeal with your readers.
      The links to all the bloggers and authors that participated will be there until the end of the year.

      1. Thank you Hugh – here in U.S., and I live in Michigan, we have so many dogs in shelter, that they have nowhere to keep them. Every so often now, they have huge events where the adoption fee is waived – it is $25.00 American. Sometimes they even take care of shots as they want to place the animals.

        1. The Dogs Trust also do amazing things like waiving fees and taking care of vaccines, etc, before dogs are adopted, Linda. I’m glad to hear that the same thing happens in your part of the world, too. Many of the animals found in these shelters are there through no fault of their own. I only wish I could adopt them all and give them a loving, safe, home. The charities do amazing work at finding homes for these animals. Our support goes a long way in helping them continue their work.

        2. Such a good organization you also have Hugh … what really breaks my heart is when people can’t take their pets with them – you see that a lot, with the elderly especially. Occasionally, it is because they have passed away, but sometimes they are going into a nursing home, or going to live with their children as they are no longer able to live alone. You see well-kept and cherished pets who suddenly after many years find themselves without their owner – how sad for them.

        3. I know exactly what you mean, Linda. Thankfully, many of the pets that are left when an elderly person can no longer look after them, do get rehoused quite quickly. However, it must be very stressful for them. I’m just thankful that many do end up in loving caring homes again, though.

  2. So glad to read you accomplished this worthy goal, Hugh! Our canine friends are all the better for your generosity! We had to cut our road trip short a few days due to winter weather conditions and the US govt shutdown in national parks. I’ll continue to leave Sunday stills in yours and Carol’s capable hands as scheduled but will be posting some on Fridays. I’m sure you will read all about my adventures soon! Hope your holidays were warm and relaxing and you enjoyed your break!

    1. I’m sorry to hear you had to cut your road trip short, Terri. However, I look forward to hearing about the time you were able to spend on the road.

      I’ve had a great Christmas and New Year. So much so, that I extended my blogging break by an extra week.

      I’m looking forward to hosting Sunday Stills in a few weeks time.

  3. Hugh, congratulations on raising money for the pups. Also, thank you for setting up the page listing those of us who participated. Best wishes for a happy and productive 2019.

  4. Many congratulations on reaching your target for the donation. It’s wonderful to see how much support you received for this – though I think it’s going to take me all year to work through all the blogs in your list that I don’t already follow! There are quite a few I already know but I’ll enjoy seeking out the others. A small side note: the blogging farm that I had in mind when we spoke yesterday didn’t participate. Go figure!

    1. Clive, thank you for leaving a link and for also making the post your one and only reblog of 2018. That was very kind of you to do and I really appreciate it.
      As for all those links, take your time. They’ll be there for the next 358 days.
      Happy New Year.

        1. There are probably other bloggers (who I don’t of) who do the same, but it’s my way of not only helping those who need our help but also to promote bloggers and authors through my own blog. This was the fourth year I did a Christmas charity appeal via my blog and is something I will do every year for as long as I blog. The Dogs Trust is also a charity close to my heart, although I may choose other charities over the coming years.

  5. So happy you met your goal, Hugh, and pleased to be a part of this, too! And a very happy New Year to you. Hope 2019 is filled with good things for you. 🙂 ❤
