Murphy sez: Hey – did ya see the new web site J set up for us? It’s still pretty basic, but I think we can work with it. Takes awhile to settle into a new home, eh Mica? J says it took you over six months to settle in here, and it’s been awhile for me too (but she says I’m more flexible, which I think is a good thing except on hard floors).
Mica sez: LeashCandy.dog? Why the heck did she call it that? And what’s “leash candy” anyway? I liked our old “Gone to the Dogs” moniker, personally. Though the .dog extension is pretty cool, on account of…we’re both dogs. And it’s our site. But still…that name…
Murphy sez: You gotta lighten up, bro. GoneWithTheDogs.com was taken, and J didn’t really think about putting the .dog extension on it, she just went looking for other names. And she remembered hearing someone refer to a good-looking dog as “leash candy” once, and thought about how everyone always stops to tell us how handsome and cute we are, and how much we love the attention. So she got us the LeashCandy.dog domain, and I think it’s pretty cool.
Mica sez: I don’t know, man. It seems a little cheerleader-ish for us. But we are darn handsome, that’s for sure. You’re right about everyone stopping or staring. Well, everyone who isn’t on their phone, anyway. I mean, the other night no less than three people stopped to smile and say hi and pet us on our walk. And the night after that the lady who visited us and J was saying how beautiful our coats are…
Murphy sez: See? That’s why the tagline is, “It’s not just a look, it’s an attitude.” I have my scarred up legs and you’ve got that seriously graying muzzle, but no one cares. They see us walkin’, ears up, tails swinging, smooth, shiny coats and alert eyes, and they want to love on us. Leash candy, man. I’m tellin’ ya – we can work with that.
Mica sez: So I guess we need to tell people to head over to the new site, eh? What about our subscribers? Do they need to resubscribe, or is J gonna take care of that?
Murphy sez: J’s got it handled. She’ll move the people who only subscribe to our posts over there automa-gically. But anyone who’s subscribed to *all* of the posts here at her blog, and want to get our posts at LeashCandy.dog will need to go over and sign up for that one too. But sign-ups won’t be available until later today.
Mica sez: And we’re just gonna keep posting on Fridays over there, right? So no more posts here on Fridays? Seems like that’s gonna leave a hole…
Murphy sez: Don’t you worry, Mica. J’s workin’ on it. And we’ll definitely keep our normal schedule at the new blog, and maybe even have some new posts at different times during the week later on. But for now – definitely Fridays. I like Fridays, don’t you, Mica?
Mica sez: Sure, I guess. Not as much as I like Saturdays, when we get new bully sticks or bones to chew on. Or Mondays, when J and B go back to work and let us sleep. But Fridays are okay. Today’s gonna be really good, if B finally comes home. He’s been gone since last Friday – and he’s gonna get a *major* sniff-down when he finally shows back up!
Murphy sez: You got that right. I mean, at least he left us with J – she feeds and walks us, so that’s important. But it’s never a good thing when a pack member goes missing, and I can’t believe J’s been so calm about it. B had better show up today – the place just isn’t the same without him (and we’re severely lacking in treats here, despite J’s effort to keep things normal)!
Mica sez: I’m sure he’ll be home as soon as he can. I mean, we’re leash candy, right? Who could resist these faces?
