With that in mind, here is a month’s worth of prompts to keep you blogging for the entire month of July! Ready. Set. Write:

  1. Do you make to-do lists for your pet? For example: Make sure Fluffy gets to the groomer; Get 10,000 steps in with Fido every day. Share those with us!
  2. What tips do you have for keeping your pets safe on the Fourth of July?
  3. What’s on your summer fun list (I don’t like to think of it as a “bucket list” because that has sad connotations in my mind)
  4. What is your favorite pet DIY? Share photos, videos and write ups of how you did it and why
  5. What are your pet’s favorite toys
  6. Where do you love taking your pet for a walk? Is it a pet park? Is there a trail behind your house? Is there a pet-friendly beach? Show and tell time!
