10 products to help survive puppyhood!

Hi All,

Yesterday, I published an article online that is my sort of "Top Ten" list for positive puppy products -- a list of things that I wouldn't dare try to raise a puppy without. I thought perhaps it might be helpful to the puppy owners here on the forum, so I'm sharing the link in case anyone is interested. You can find the aticle here:

Thanks for looking!

Kindly,
Stephanie

Well done Steph. I think one of the mods should put it as a sticky or next to the "Puppy Buyers Fact Checker".

Hey, THANKS ALL!

I appreciate that you like when I post links here. I never want it to come across like blatent self-promotion. Please let me know if that ever becomes the case. I'm just trying to share information that I think might be helpful to members.

I'm really trying to up the amount of writing I'm doing as of late. I've realized I really miss the journalism end of my skill-set. I've got lots of ideas for articles for upcoming articles and tip lists! I think on the Examiner site, you can sign up to receive an email everytime I post a new article - just in case I forget to link it here.

Thanks again for your support of my writing. It's much appreciated!

Well, so far you've been writing articles that provide clear, thorough answers to the kinds of questions that are asked dozens of times a week on the forum, so it's been completely great. I don't think there's anything wrong with linking to your dog-related expertise. This forum rises above other internet chat-fests precisely because people with serious expertise are willing to share it.
