Cow Butts

Most of the search terms used to find my blog are reasonable, to me. Flyball, flyball box, flyball collar, flyball sport mix dog, etc, are all terms that come up a long on the blog, and really, have a lot to do with what I talk about. It makes sense, then, that Flyball is the single most searched term leading to someone clicking on my blog.

Lure coursing and slip leads have come up a few times as well. Seems like a reasonable number of people are interested in doing the CAT, doing lure coursing with their hound, or looking at/buying/learning to use a coursing slip.

A few people, directed to my blog through Google searches, may have come up disappointed. I did not, actually, post who won the CanAm 2011. For you: Rocket Relay won CanAm 2011 after the fifth heat ended in a dead tie with Instant Replay.

Those interested in Disc Dog and Canine Dancing/Freestyle won't have found much in the way of training tips, but hopefully they were satisfied with the plethora of pictures.

I hope those people directed to the blog by inquiries about raw diet, raw diet in sports dogs, and flyball dog diets have been helped by my weekly Menu Planning posts, which include the diet for my dogs every week (though I stopped writing glucosamine supplement every time, even though they get it every day).

My Flyball Training Series posts may have helped out the person looking for flyball target training, and I sincerely hope the touch stick training and other behaviors to be trained help them find what they were looking for.

What I don't understand is the number of people directed to my blog when searching the term "cow butts". Sure, I mentioned cows back in my post about the fair, and even included a picture of some cow butts. What I'm more confused with is 1) Why are people searching google for cow butts? and 2) Are there so few pictures/references out there to cow butts that my blog is one of the top hits?

If cow butts are so popular, why not Sheep Noses? Afterall, the picture depicting a sheep nose is so much cuter.

At this point, however, I have probably repeated the phrase "cow butts" so many times that it is destined to become one of the newest draws to my blog. Maybe I should go visit some farmers in the area so I have new cow butt pictures to share? Any local farmers want to offer up their cows for a photo shoot?


  1. Isn't it funny how people get directed to your blog?

    Stop on by for a visit!

  3. I don't check out my stats much but last time I did it the funniest (most weird!) search term was something like 'him being strangled', lol. I'd posted a picture of Beryl and Frankie tangled up asleep and captioned it 'she looks like she's strangling him'. But I had to wonder why someone would be searching for such a thing in the first place?

  4. Cow Butts!! LMAO! Maybe you should make it a monthly feature....

  5. Sometimes I look at how people found my blog to get a good laugh. The best one right now was a search for "a cool name for rabies"... go me?

  6. LOL....yep, totally know how you feel! For some reason my blog gets a LOT of hit for "blue balls" or "do dogs get blue balls." And all because of one short Christmas themed post where I put up a picture of Heffner laying down with two blue Christmas balls under his tail like fake testicles. Ever since then, it's consistently one of the most used terms to get my blog hits.

  7. I have several people that were directed by a google search for "girl peeing dog" I guess I talk about Fred peeing alot. BOL

  8. Funny! I'm glad I don't work at Google and see all the weird things people search for. I get some doozies on my blog, too, and I think there might be a post coming up soon. :)

  9. I agree, cow butts are a huge draw!

    Come for the cow butts, stay for the flyball!
