For this week's HubMob, I have decided to cover a topic that is truly close to many people's hearts - their pets. I have never really been a pet owner, but as I meet more and more people I realize the huge role that they play in the lives of others around me. So, this HubMob is basically a way for all of you pet lovers out there to let the world know a little bit about what you have figured out about pets.
Also, if you're not a fan of pets, you can play along, too - just publish a Hub on something like 'Why I am happy about never owning a smelly pet'. You're free to write about whatever you want for this HubMob(we get some reeeally interesting stuff), just so long as it's somewhat about the topic of pets.
As usual, I left it pretty wide open as far as specific Hub topic ideas go, but it seems like none of you ever have trouble putting your spin on whatever I throw out each week. So, whether you want to write about 'Tips On Managing Multiple Dogs In One House' or 'The Best Way To Clean An Iguana Cage', there is always something about pets that you know about the most, so write away!
To join this week's HubMob, please follow the steps below:
1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub on that has something to do with the topic of Halloween and what about it you always look forward to. Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it, research it or wing it. It's up to you on how you write your HubMob Hub.
2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters. Feel free to use the tags that I suggested or add a few of your own.
3. Write a an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea. Be sure to add an RSS Capsule that includes the RSS feed to the rest of this week's HubMob entries (Link: http://hubpages.com/request/7545/best?rss) and also add one of the HubMob images below to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.
4. After you publish your HubMob Hub, reply in this Forum thread with a brief description of what topic idea you wrote about, why you chose it and a link to your newly published contribution to the HubMob. I mean, we all want to see, too!
5. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keyword over on Google.
6. Promote the HubMob by sending out this link to your friends, family and complete strangers http://HubPages.com/info/hubmob
I thought that we'd get a good response from this one...looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
I might have to do a Hub on 'The Luxuries Of Not Owning A Pet' or something.
Or, I could do 'How To Deal With A Girlfriend Who Really Really Really Wants A Pug'.
I like the first one. Personally, as much as I love my pets, it's a huge strain on one's life. It definitely poses a number of extra baggages. I'd say as many pros as there are having pets, there are just as many cons.
As for pugs.. *scrunches nose* cute but way to many health problems, definitely touch on that one if you opt the second..
Man I've been playing more on the forums or at least reading them than I have been writing. Sad. I'm being a procrastinator today.
I have a Pug and they are wonderful! I just love this picture, Hup!
As for the health problems, we are dealing with a treatable illness right now but then he is 8 years old (rather 56 in dog years) so I think we are pretty fortunate in that area.
I will definitely be doing a hub on the pets topic but I am embarrassed to say that I have no clue as to the RSS thing. Never used it and don't know where to start. Guess I'll have to research that part before I get started!
Wow! Ryan, that will get quite a few hubbers motivated. Good one. zs
Ah man thanks Ryan, I could have done my spaying female dogs hub for the hubmob. Guess I'll have to think of a new hub or two. :-/ Shouldn't be too hard though.
Yea I did 2. one that answered another request and one that sort of related to the request, but could have been a hubmob answer instead. Oh well, it'll just get my mind working for another idea.
I got kind of an early start for today!!!
Now that I'm post-GRE, I have time for some hubbing again, and this is a topic I can sink my teeth into (not literally, vegematarian here).
Pets, hummm...will have to think on that one...guess I'll want it to be as 'adorable' as the image you posted here ... I've got two adorable dogs...but what to say about them? Guess my brain's not too awake yet this Monday morning.
Like shades I have posted 2 hubs about pets but I can try to come up with something.
pugs are cute. I love how they looked like they ran into something with their face. That just adds to their character.
Here's my hub of the week. It's about pet diseases especially the ones that can cross to humans, and how to avoid them.
I hope you find the info useful
http://hubpages.com/hub/Health-and-illn … e-you-sick
Oops, I did this one a couple weeks ago with the praying mantis thing, and I'm not sure I'd have anything interesting to say about dogs and cats. Someday I hope to be able to write a hub on working out a compromise between one spouse who thinks dogs are too unsanitary to live inside and another who thinks non-working dogs should be with their people most of the time so they don't bark incessantly, etc. but no such compromise has been worked out yet and we remain dogless.
Hmm. ~pulls out thinking cap~
Well, here goes. My hub is all about caring for your ferrets and what fun they are as pets. I hope all enjoy it.
I hope this proves to be entertaining:
No hubs for me until the weekend , gotta study, doing a first aid course for work.....jimmy
ps maybe I will hub about that at the weekend though lol
Good! I can finally use a story I've been saving...
My latest hub on this topic is all about the incredibly easy and cheap pets to own called 'Sea-Monkeys'. No vets bills and an inexpensive, great child's first pet.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Sea-Monkeys-the … ets-of-all
This link is for the Hub I have written about the pet goat I owned many years ago called Trixie, and what a funny character she truly had. A bit like having a big dog with hooves.
Thanks for your comment on my Sea-Monkeys Hub Ryan. I can't seem to reply though as it keeps telling me some bits required for the quote are missing, not sure why though. Anyway, you are right, Sea-Monkeys make a fascinating first pet for children and are about as easy as it gets.
My first hubmob for pets, and it's pretty much a take on spaying female dogs. I figured I needed to do the male version. Anyway, here it is.
Neutering your male dog:
Okay...here it is. My confession of guilt...
I'm apologizing now to all animal lovers.
Oh. My. Goodness.
You all need to read this...it's so funny and sad all at the same time.
Stop playing with my emotions, Spryte!
A HAH!!! The cat lady can go crazy with writing!!! Mwaahaahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Watch out world! I don't know if you guys are ready for my stories or not.
Here's my feral cat colony! http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Joys-and-Pe … -Caretaker

http://hubpages.com/hub/Chosing-a-pet-b … ersonality

Pet rocks, caring for them, and who should have a pet rock.
And, I updated my male neutering hub to include a few myths about neutering your male dog.
Here is mine:

Here's another one: Your Cat Could Be Famous Like These Other Famous Cats
http://hubpages.com/hub/Your-Cat-Could- … amous-Cats
Number three and last for the week: large snakes as pets
This is a hub about how I made the mistake of trying to bath my chicks as a child, and nearly killed them in the process. The guilt I felt still lives with me to this day.
I caught a baby ground squirrel when I was ten. Though is was a very sweet little pet-- I would not do it again.
Here is mine that I did today and didn't see this was posted 2 days ago:
This is the true story of how I got our local faith healing chapel to pray for my poorly rabbit. I hope you enjoy it.

I was in the mood to write tonight and I really like this week's hubmob topic...so I bring you the story of Pretty Boy, one of many budgies that shared my family home...
I let my cats write this one! http://hubpages.com/hub/Adopting-my-Pet--Three-Views
Hello All I am back from my travels. Here is my take on this one!

One on why you don't want a wild animal pet--
as a followup to my hub on having a wild "Pocket Mouse".
http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-You-Dont-Wa … Animal-Pet
I wrote about the pros and cons of my OTHER baby, an Italian Greyhound.
http://hubpages.com/hub/What-You-Need-t … our-Family
This Hub is all about the pets I have owned and how the various ones have amused me. I hope it amuses you all too.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Funny-Stories-A … I-have-Had
I published a Halloween Hub last week only to finally realize there was more to the HubMob gravy train than staying on topic. I'm linked and ready, baby! My Hub describes how to protect small pets from predators in the desert Southwest. Lots of people move out here, leave their pets outside overnight, then find their pets' leashes chewed through and their pets gone. It is a gruesome problem that can easily be prevented. Check it out:
How to Protect Your Small Pets from Desert Predators
I've got nothin' again for this week's Mob, and just logged in to cheer you all on.
But ... first thing I see? My account got hijacked!!! Here's the proof:
How to Supervise Your Humahnz
My husband denies all knowledge, even under severe bribery. So I believe him.
But if I ever catch the culprits, they're in for the bathtime of their lives -- complete with lavender bubbles!
I think I did it? Followed all the instructions, got the hub by following the request, added the RSS and the banner and this is the result -

Whew, a bit unnerving for this newb! Thanks KT for introducing me to the option to create a HubMob!
All about pets -well I wrote this short article a few days ago, its about the pleasure in owning dogs and the pleasure in not owning dogs. I hope you like it John
Another hub for the pets http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Thousand-Rand-Cat
This one is for all those who work for animal shelters and SPCA's world wide
OK, Here is another HubMob pet topic I wrote for all those wannab pet owners. As I have time I'm hoping to link to some of the other hubbers' animal shelter hubs.
22 Ways to Experience Having Pets When You Can't Keep One at Home
