Self Pawtrait Gallery and Welcome to Molly!

The Blogville Self Pawtrait Challenge has come to a close. You can see it here,  on the Arts and Entertainment website.

There were 39 pawticipants, mostly dogs but a few talented kitties as well.
Please take time to look at the self pawtraits, even if you didn't enter the challenge. They are really fabulous.

Also, please "follow" the Arts and Entertainment website. The more followers we have, the better.

Thank you to all who pawticipated in this challenge.

A special thanks goes to Jakey, our Director of Artistic Developmment, who helped so many by posting a Pizap tutorial on the site.  Anybuddy who wants to know how to use this free photo editing program can see Jakey's tutorial, which has its own page.

I would also like to take this oppawtunity to introduce you all to my new furend Molly, who is pawbably Blogville's newest resident.  Molly was recently diagnosed with SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome). In other words, sweet Molly is going blind.

Molly's pawrents are doing everything possible fur her.

Molly created a beautifur self pawtrait.  Doesn't she look precious? It is No. 38 in the Self Pawtrait Gallery.

Molly is a beautifur grrrl.
Molly also wrote the most recent entry fur the Endangered Species Challenge. She chose the plains bison.

Molly stood up fur the Plains Bison.

I hope you will visit Molly's blog, The Fast and the Furriest, to follow her journey and to help her feel welcome in Blogville.  As you can imagine, little Molly is facing a most difficult challenge.

From Vancouver,
Louis Dog Armstrong
Director of Arts and Entertainment
