Blogville Arts and Entertainment

I pawmise to do my best!
Hello Blogville:

This is Louis Dog Armstrong, Director of Arts and Entertainment for the new Blogville administration. I thought I would let you know what to expect in the area of entertainment and the arts in 2017.

Furst, pawever, I want you to know that fur me this is a serious pawsition. I plan to do my best fur all af Blogville. 

I also want to, at this time, thank Arty fur trusting me and appointing me to this pawsition. I pawmise to do my furry best!

My goal for the Arts and Entertainment department is to create projects and challenges that Blogville residents will enjoy.  

During 2017 the Department of Arts and Entertainment will sponsor various projects and challenges fur Blogville citizens to pawticipate in if they so wish. These will be announced approximately every month.  Some will be designed to make the world a better place fur anipals, some will decorate Blogville itself while others will be just fur fun.  We can even do some travelling, thanks to our unlimited budget!

 All of our projects and challenges will involve the arts in some way and I hope they will all be entertaining. 

Fur some of the challenges and projects, the A & E Department will award badges that you can place on your blogs, just fur pawticipating.  

I hope that you will enjoy having fun with the A and E Department in the year to come.

Now, before I go over to the Idaho Pug Ranch fur the Inauguration Lawn Pawty, I want to announce the first A & E challenge:




The challenge is to take a phodograph of yourself with an endangered species of your choice, and then write a bit about the species you chose. The written part can be as short or as long as you like, but it must at least identify the species and say something about it.

The point of this challenge is to increase awareness of how so many of our anipal brothers and sisters are in danger of completely disappearing from the earth. If a community of dogs and cats write about it, maybe the whole world will take notice!

Email your submissions to me at

The dead lion is January 15, 2017 and I hope to have everybuddy's work posted by January 25th.

All pawticipants will receive a badge fur bringing awareness to endangered species. If you like you can place this on your blog.


Here I am with Ethiopian Wolves.
There are only three species of wolves in all of Africa and the Ethiopian wolf is one of them. This wolf is in trouble because it is the most endangered canine anipal in the world.
These wolves live in the high mountains of Ethiopia. They lead complex social lives that fascinate the scientists who try to protect them.  All dogs have evolved from wolves, so I chose the Ethiopian wolf because he is my cousin.


  1. Louis, you are going to do a wonderful job as Arts and Entertainments Director. I am so looking forward to all the challenges. And you look so at home with your Ethiopian wolf cousins.
    Toodle pip!

  12. Congratulations on your new pawsition. Sounds like you're already off to a great start.

  13. This is exciting. I know you will do a great job. My parents have no idea how to do the photo shop thing. If we see an endangered specie we will pose with it. Can we take one by mommy's old computer?

  14. Congratulations on your new position. Art is very important to any community. Please reach out to us at Barking from the Bayou so we can add your challenges and ideas to our Monday newscast.

  15. Mommy is like Foley Monster. Her is useless as mammary glands on a boar hog with photo doctoring and doesn't;t have photoshop. BUT we will love seeing what everybody comes up with.

  16. Crikey Louis ..... you are going to be pawsome at this job, aye?? What a great first challenge. I'm going to put my thinking cap on ... Way to go Louis!!

  17. OMD, this is gonna be exciting indeed!!!! I knows just the anipal I'm gonna do!
    You are gonna make one PAWSOME A&E Director!!!

  18. That's a great idea. At first I suggested I pose next to a sandwich as in my presence they are always endangered but Mom said it has to be an animal. What fun!
