Taking a Break! Update

Just letting you know that we are taking a break from posting in Speedy's blog and I know that being a blogpaws finalist I shouldn't be doing that but I have solved that too as I have in formed them to replace us,We don't want to win it.I am honoured to have been considered but when I started this blog for Speedy it was supposed to be fun well this week hasn't been fun,quite frankly its been horrible.Nearly all of you have been great and I consider you friends,but a couple of you assumed I was asking all of you to pay for the trip to blogpaws which wasn't true Not once did I ask you for money but I did ask you for help and ideas for finding Sponsors.I put a link for a gofund me page on a post,that wasn't for you that was for my family who are dotted all over the world so I wouldn't have to email every single one of them,but again a couple of you assumed the opposite.I don't have to explain my family circumstance's to any one.Have you been on the gofund me home site? It actually says that it is for things like this not just good cause's because when you use them they charge you for using them and out of that charge they give a portion to charity but I guess you didn't know that either.But this whole experience has upset me and made me angry you know who you are the ones that had a go at me with out checking out the facts and I'm not going to mention who you are either because it isn't worth mentioning but remember this is my blog not yours and you have no right to have a go at me with out checking the full story.
So I am taking a break because its not fair to just go through the motions to the rest of you,We will still be reading the blogs of the rest of you and saying hello.But we will be back it may be a few days or a week or two but we will be back.And we don't want you to think we are abandoning you because we aren't.

I'll leave you with these cute photos.
Last note on this experience I have had an apology from one they are saying it was a misunderstanding but my answer is if you are a friend you tell them you may be misreading or misunderstanding something and then work together to make things clearer not make snap judgements

Sunday 30th March:
We Just want to say thank you for all your kind comments,you are all wonderful anipals and people and we love you guys,xx Speedy and Rachel


  1. Dearest friends, I adore you. I hope this time off will heal and that those who have been unkind will do right by you. Much love, and these photos are making me smile.

  2. We think it must have been some horrid misunderstanding, Please don't get upset as what ever happened I am sure it was not supposed to be something nasty. Sometimes things can get to all of us and you do the right thing to have a break and take a deep breath and please come back. We are sure no one wanted you to feel bad.
    Take care
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Gosh I hope it was misunderstanding. People really shouldn't judge without knowing the facts. We will miss you guys.
    Lily & Edward

  4. How sad this had to happen, but I really hope you will continue blogging because I love your blog, and I have a secret crush on Speedy too. In any case, take your time. And hopefully we'll see you back when you are ready ;-)

  5. Oh Speedy, this is absolutely horrible. We must have missed all of this but I am shocked to hear this and hope like Molly said it was some misunderstanding. Also like Molly, we hope you can move past whatever happened and come back. We love you, your speedy runs and your special adventures. You also really deserve to be a BlogPaws finalist. Lots of love and we are here whenever you come back.

  6. dood...brakes R good when ther bee mizz understandinz oh any kind..well, brakez bee prette good for carz two...reeely good act shoe a lee... spesh a lee goin down a hill....we like yur furst picture...R ewe disapprovin de pile oh paper ?

  7. All our love an husky wooooos furiends, please hurry back, peace to you & yours,


  8. I'm so sorry you had people sniping at you like that. I don't blame you for wanting to take a break, but remember you do have friends here who care, so don't be away for too long.

  9. Oh crap!I just hate it when the idiots come out n' about and pick on my friends. They should have to sound an Idiot Alert before they come out. Unfortunately they are everywhere, even in Blogville. We hope you come back soon because so many of us just love your blog and we're here for you. I have claws, and I know how to use them.

  10. Well, have a nice break guys. I definitely didn't get the notion that you were asking for funds from your readers. It's nice to take a break and cool off and relax sometimes. Enjoy it!

  11. I too am very sorry.

    You know, even if you were begging for money, so what. It isn't like you were lying about anything.. people have every right to refuse to give you money, and they can simply turn around and walk away if they do not like what you post... no one is forcing them to be on YOUR blog, which is YOUR corner of the internet, and you are completely allowed to do what ever you want with it.

    You take as long as you want/need. I for one will be here when you are ready to start posting again..

  12. People can be really stupid !
    Life is too short to let stupid people be a real nuisance in your life. Let them speak …
    I hope you will be back soon. I love your blog and …. your little rabbit.
    Douce soirée.

    PS : Nice first picture !

  13. Oh how awful :( we couldn't even see the post you put up as it came up not we missed the whole thing..we would not have assumed anything as to assume makes a ass out of u an me as they say:) we love your bloggie and are sad you were made to feel bad...lucky you have still friends who are here waiting for your return :) sometimes time out is good for us can get hectic and stressful and negative or nasty comments are not really necessary..hugs and lovies Fozziemum and gang xxx

  14. I am sorry that you had some nasty comments. It is always sad when somebody makes a wrong assumption and causes upset. You have many friends here who support you and will miss you while you take your break. I hope you come back soon so we can share in Speedy's adventures again.

  15. I'm sorry people made your happy place not so happy. I've experienced it too and it's Not Fun. People can really suck sometimes. I wish I could take the hurt away.


    Snuggle a bunny or watch him blaze around the place and feel better.

  16. What??? Oh man...well, you let me knows who they are and I will go and poop in their shoes!!!! Yups, big ole 1/2lb Airedale poops!!! You know what, I know it's hard, butts just ignore them. If they thought that, then they already had mean thoughts in their head. Who needs peeps like that??? Not US!! Nopes!
    Anyhu, I do understand the need to 'take a breath' and re-group. I hopes you will still stick around and make us laugh and smile!
    Ruby ♥
    pees: I'll send your Moms a margarita!!! They always make things better!!! BOL

  17. Some people are just a pain in the ass. Plain and simple. Don't stop posting because of a few dorkwads. We love you and Speedy to bits. You are awesome, caring and so wonderful sweets.

  18. We're so sorry that you had to experience this. We love Speedy and we love visiting him...and you. We'll see you when you come back...which we hope won't be too long.

  19. Oh no.... this should not happen. Please Speedy and your Mom enjoy spring and don't worry about some people too much.
    We are your friends!
    Pia, Luna and Luigi.

  20. I'm so sorry to hear this my dear friend. Please don't let a couple of people stop from doing what you like best in blogging. XOXO - Bacon

  21. Oh Speedy's Mom I'm so sorry what should have been a huge honor became upsetting for you. I don't understand what gets into people sometimes. I've been seeing some of this judging behavior on Facebook lately too, so bizarre. So take a nice break and come back whenever you are ready. Cuddle Speedy and let him wash the anger away :)

  22. Just take that break and relax. It will all be fine in the end.

  23. We are very sorry to read here that you have had this experience. We really enjoy your blog and hope you will come back soon so we can once again follow the joyful adventures of that adorable bun Speedy!

  24. Oh Speedy and Miss Rachel, we are all so sorry some bloggyers were not furry nice! We hope you might still be on Facebookie, and we look forward to seeing you back blogging soowooowooooon even if Mama clicky-fingers secretary does't get over to blogspot as often! wuvwuvwuvwuvv to youwooowooowooooooooo! Ku and the whole pack

  25. Speedy & Mum, please come back soon! I also really hope you still take the award from Blog Paws because that's a huge honor. I'm sorry for the bad experience you had. You have a ton of friends that support you.

  26. Oh no, I'm sorry to hear about this negative experience.
    I love the pics of Speedy and hope you come back soon.

    Karen, Jensen, Buttercup

  29. Oh wow guys! I am so sorry you are going through this right now!!
    How unfair of people to treat you that way!
    We will miss you guys Speedy and mom! Can't wait till your return, but take as long as you need, we all understand. Sending love and warm fluffy husky hugz your way.
    Lots of luv!!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  30. I am happy for you for being a blogpaws finalist...
    Sorry about the misleading interpretations though...
    You are right, you´d better step back a little and come back when the storm has stopped!!!...

    Best wishes, always, Aquileana :)

  31. Oh my goodness I had no idea! I had just started following your blog! I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this!
    That is very unfair of those people to treat you that way without knowing the whole story.
    We will look forward to when you guys return. We will miss you on your break, but take the time you need. Blogging can be very hard sometimes.
    Anyway, we are sending lots of love and Siamese smothers!
    ❀Siamese Smothers❀Happiness is Siamese!

  32. Oh Oh! Sorry. Sometimes a break is good - like now!

  33. Oh dear, so very sorry to hear of this. I'd heard that you were a blogpost finalist (and belated congrats on that), but I hadn't heard about the rest. People can be pretty harsh on the interwebs at times, and say way too much without thinking first of the impact their words can have on others. Shame on those who made you feel bad for no reason whatsoever. *hugs* from me, and Mr. Mick sends nose bonks and bunny kisses--and we both hope you'll be back to blogging soon! <3

  34. I am so sorry. Big hugs to you. I never noticed before but; it looks like Speedy has grey tips on his paws. How cute.

  37. Dear Speedy and Rachel,

    We have been on a blogging break and had no idea all these were happening. We read something we thought was odd on our Facebook and put two and two together and came immediately to check things out. We're sorry about what happened and we hope you'll feel better after a blogging break. Please give Speedy a big cuddle from all of us!

    The Furries of Whisppy and Mommy

  38. Mom got all wrapped up in Cat Scouts with Mauricio the last few days and didn't know anything was going on 'cause we missed reading for a few days. Whatever mean things people said, shame on them. And Mom is so super disappointed that you won't be coming to Blog Paws. She really wanted to meet you. Mom says her offer to represent you is back on the table. You should not withdraw from the competition because of some stoopid peeps. Give Speedy a smooch from all of us. The photos with this post are too, too cute. Mommy is sending you lots of hugs. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  39. That is so sad and you should not listen to those kind of people , you should go on with your blog , hope to see your posts soon :) cheer up

  40. Aww man! I am so sorry this happened to you. I learned the hard way to that some people can be so rude,and mean, its even worse when you think they are fans andfriends of you and speedy! I'm glad you got so many responses saying the same thing. I know how much it can hurt when you get people like that, but you just have to chalk them down to jelous (imo) or upset with their own lives. You did nothing wrong and I am so happy you were a finalist, and getting credit for all the posts and work you guys do on here! Just know we have your back. Lots of love, Leah and Kirby
