Angel Blessings for Dogs on Squidoo

Updated on November 23, 2014

Welcome to My Squid Angel Blessings for Dogs

These wonderful pets are part of our lives so we love lenses where owners show them off. They contribute so much and the love exchanged is great to incorporate. They exercise us, walk us, get us off the couch and guard and protect us while some even work for us. What we give them cannot compare to what they give back. Never a cross word do they utter, never a complaint do they mouth, never a bad grumpy nagging bitch do we encounter and always we have them by our side in times of trouble.

What Makes Your Lens Blessworthy?

Your Biography This is so important that not many will bless a lens where this is not completed. You need to tell us who you are, a bit of your background, possibly where you live, and so on. Also a picture either of yourself or what is called an Avatar, an image that will identify you to everyone. Please also activate your contact email as people like me might just need to send you a note occasionally about your lens, how to improve it or whether or not it has been awarded a purple star or better.

Photographs A lens is a masterpiece thanks to the tools that Squidoo provides. Get to know how to use those tools to your advantage. Make use of good images in the introduction and text modules. Every image must tell a story related to the theme of the lens. If you are publishing those of someone else then please credit the source, even if it is from a free site or the public domain. If they are from the same source then you only need to do this once.

The Text Not everyone has English as their first language and if this is you then try to get some help, usually from the Critique forum or from one of the senior Squids. Ask them to read over it and check for grammar mistakes, as that is the worst one. Syntax is also important as how you phrase a sentence can have a bearing on the understanding of what you are implying. e,g. 'The man bit the dog' is completely different to 'the dog bit the man'.

Table of Contents When I first built a lens I did not even know what that was. It is referred to as TOC and it was not long before I learned the importance of having a Site Map, another term for it, at the top of your page. Its rather like when you open a book and look at the index. It indicates whether or not the contents are worth reading.

Module Headings Every module uses a default heading which you must change. Here is you opportunity to use keywords to introduce this section of your lens. The wording should be kept to a minimum and each module address a separate issue within the subject, if possible.

Guestbook Yes, it is essential to have a place where your visitors can respond to your lens. Did they like it? Will it make a difference in their life? Does it impact on their thinking? and so on. People love to tell you and you must let them. Read my lens on Building a lens

Breaking Bad Habits

Dogs who have bad habits may be kept in the dog house until they learn their lesson and can return to the indoors. But what if it is a neighbourhood disturbance such as barking or howling? These lenses will take care of it.

Dog Abuse and Breeding Problems

People wil do anything for money and the cruelty that some dogs go through to make such breeders rich is appaling. Thankfully some squids are bringing awareness to their plight.

What is a Puppy Mill?

Would you Buy from a Pet Store?

If you know about the breeding conditions would you buy that dog?

Dog Art

Art comes in many forms and many love pics, calendars, prints and even colouring in pages. These lenses have them all. plus more

Dog Breeds and Breeding and Tips

Here are tribute lenses to breeds and performance. Some are great runners, others are working dogs that take a delight in helping man, still others are strictly for show. Then there are the lap dogs and now the miniature toy variety. What type do you prefer? Take your pick from some of the best

Dog Care

We all have different ideas about pet care and some more experience than others. But what do we share in common if not the love of thse gorgeous creatures? Whether pampered, tolerated, yard dogs, guard dogs or other, they are all needing our care. Admittedly some go overboard with what they turn their pets into.

Dog Clothes

Dogs are now treated to clothes that imitate those of children. Well, a dog is like a child and little dogs are like babies, so why not dress them up? But the fashions can go overboard, after all a boss dog should not exactly look like the aggressive business man - should he? Well. perhaps we should ask what next?

Dog Crafts

Many squids make lovely lenses on crafts with animal themes. They are not always dog only related but some are interchangeable with our canine friends and they deserve a place here.

Dog Names

Here I am, so what's my name. Pet names are so varied and elaborate or just so simple and short that it is hard to pick just the right name for your lovely new member of the family. But whatever it is you can bet your life that it will suit it down to the ground and be unique and full of love, just as they are.

Dog Training

With the right training dogs can accomplish almost anything. They are intelligent giants who can often teach man a thing or two, even how to fly it seems. Any pet needs to be taught how to obey rules, and of the right and wrong ways to act with family and friends. Socializing is also all important.

Gear for Your Dog

You can't own a pet without acquiring some gear. You need a lead, a collar, a bed, food, containers, a blanket or coat for cold prevention, and so on. The following companies are known for good service, products and supplies. They have been tested by numerous affiliates, have been in business long enough to have proven themselves, and offer their wares at the best price. You pay less when you shop online and delivery is to your door.

Get the Right Advice and Products

Many great health prevention products and aids for conditions can be bought on line. The following are some examples from Companies who are trustworthy and whose wares are generally a lot cheaper than from a vet, pet shop or normal health store

How Much do You Support Animal Shelters?

Do you think they do a good job?

This is a Video. If the space is blank try refreshing.

It's amazing how much pain an animal experiences if they have gingivitis, gum disease and/or tooth decay. But how many pet owners ever get to look into their pet's mouth, Bad breath is a major warning sign but dogs and cats will often hide other symptoms. They don't know why that bone can't be enjoyed as much as a few months ago. This innovative product (not yet used by myself) promises to help with this problem. If we lived in the USA I would have it in a flash as ny dog shows early signs of gingivitis.

This Lens Earned a Purple Star

On June 19th, 2011, a beautiful purple star was given for this work and it is a tribute to all the lensmasters whose stories and lenses are featured here. Thank you Robin and Bonnie who do such a great job awarding these little beauties. Hugs

Please leave a love note. We love you woof woof

      Wow, a great lens with lotsa links, I'll be back. Thanks for the tips on making lenses blessworthy. I just want to say that all my pets have been adopted from animal shelters and I've loved them all. My baby girl, Sox, was a rescue and she is the most wonderful cat in the world. I will NEVER buy a "brand new" dog or cat again until there is no need for shelters.

      I love all animals. I have a few. Most people say I treat them better than I do People. It's just I pay close attention to the animals facial and body expretions and reactions to certain things. Since they can't talk in my language I try to learn theirs. It' so nice to know there are others that feel the same way as I do about animals. Thank You!!!

      Thank you for featuring my lens My Best Friend, My Pug in this wonderful lens. Nevada is also sprouting more and more puppy stores in shopping malls, which truly upsets me. How can these breeders be so cruel? I have papers on my Sarah, from a breeder in Henderson, but who knows if they are truly real? But I warn all my friends and relatives to never buy from a mall pet store, no matter how cute the little one is. The buyer might believe they are saving the one they buy, and even though that might be true, every puppy purchased just encourages these puppy mills to up their output. The video was heartbreaking...but thanks for sharing this lens. I'll pass it along.

      Fascinating anomaly that I've discovered. When I look using Google Chrome (my usual browser), I have not been able to see any featured lenses. When I tried tonight using Firefox, the featured lenses show up OK! I'm surprised that this is the only lens this has happened on, in all my SquidTime to date. Google Chrome's been fine on all others. I don't know how to explain this, to help you but it should possibly be reported to Squid HQ.
