I’ve only been blogging since June 2009. In that short time, I’ve really come to appreciate the fervor and pride of pet owners. One place where the community spirit is pawticularly evident is the vocabulary we share to talk and write about our fur-kids. And what better way to dogument pet owners’ linguistic creativity than to compose a Glossary of Pet-Speak.
So here’s the deal … give us your best pet-speak – a word, term, or phrase – and we’ll create a landing page at Take Paws to capture the lingo. Consider it our own little crowd-sourced WikiPetia Dictionary. While you’re at it, include your website URL and/or Twitter name so we can provide attribution. Then, we’ll share your URL/handle as a link in the Glossary so people can find you.
To start it off, below are contributions from GoPetFriendly’s social media guru, my wife, and myself.
Let’s make it a contest. The top 5 terms – judged solely by GoPetFriendly (and, perhaps, a few friends) – will face off in a Take Paws blog poll. Prizes to be awarded:
Deadline for submissions is midnight (EST) Tuesday, March 9. In case of duplicates, first one in gets the credit. Look forward to purr-rusing your entries! Have fun!
