Happy Birthday to Us

A year ago today I started this little blog, and what a year it's been. I've so enjoyed becoming part of the blogging community, receiving all your support, advice and encouragement and learning about other people's pups in return. Thank you for reading!

I considered doing a numbers round up of the past year but realized that totting up the vet bills would just get a bit depressing so instead, in no particular order, a year in the life of In Black & White photo-style:

It wouldn't be a birthday celebration without presents so here are a couple of little reader appreciation gifts for you:

1. I've got two handmade stuffed bones to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter and two winners will be picked at random. If you're a no-reply commenter don't forget to include an email address in your comment. (Giveaway will close on January 25)

2. If your dogs have been drooling over the stash of treats Billy received last week and you fancy trying out, use checkout code BWPA908 for 10% off your first order. They'll also make an additional $10 donation to Best Friends Animal Society.

You may remember that beagle foster Lucy came to us through Best Friends' Pup-My-Ride program. She was one of 43 dogs that Best Friends liberated from a puppy mill in missouri and transported to rescues in Chicago.

Hmmm, puppy mill dogs, could that be a neat little segue to an upcoming announcement? I'll let you know in a week or so. If you haven't already liked our facebook page don't forget to do so as I might post a sneak peek.


  1. So glad you started blogging and Molly would love a handmade bone!

  2. YAY!! Happy blog-a-versary! I sure hope this is a future foster we're hinting it!

  3. Happy First year anniversary!! If I happen to be the lucky winner - please donate to your favourite rescue for me xx

  4. We just used Mr Chewy for the first time! Happy Anniversary!

  5. We just used Mr. Chewy for the first time too - seems very convenient! :)

    And I know a certain foster dog who would LOVE a handmade bone to chew on - so count us in on the giveaway!!!

    Happy blogaversary!

  6. Yay! Happy blogaversary! I've loved reading about your adventures with Billy. It's so strange I met you prolly a little over a year ago volunteering and didn't find out that you were Billy's mom OR a blogger until MUCH later. I feel honored to get to know you better and I look forward to more time spent together.

  7. Happy one year to you!! Love your giveaways too!

  8. congrats on your blogiversary! i love what you did with the pictures there.

  9. Hi it's nice to meet you. Happy Blog Birthday.
