Final Post but Not a Farewell post


Blogging has been a great experience for me. It has sparked new ideas and topics for me. To discover and write about from a single idea of what I want this blog to be about. I want to keep up with this blog; to have a outlet to take a break and write. Even though creating a habit to post and write up something can be a challenge when life comes busy. I will do the best as I can.

FDOM was a interesting class to take. It opened up my mind to why its important to take advantage of social media and have it benefit me for my career and professional profile. I hope to improve my writing skills, learn how to write code and HTML. On behalf of some students or all, I myself can agree that this course can be taken online. The course content: slides, videos etc will still be apart of the class but not having a physical lecture.

This spring semester has been enjoyable and creating this furbaby/pet owner blog has been a fun. This has been the most creative assignment that I have received to date.



Adopt Me App – Finding furever friends with one swipe.

My mobile app called, Adopt Me App, will assist users in finding new pets in their local area by plugging in their zip code. This will pull up all types of animal centers that adopt out animals in a specific radius of the user’s location. The animal shelters can upload profiles of the adoptable pets that include: name, weight, age, sprayed/neutered status, etc. The app will also have a page called Adopt Me Deals shows deals or discounts that the shelter is having to promote more adoptions. The Pet Feeder page links with the local area shelters’ twitter to have a real time update on pets and new pets that are up for adoption.

***The images show in ‘Animals Profiles’ are real dogs that are from Austin Humane Society.**

Just to say Hello..

Hi Everyone!
My name is Erika Hauer. I am currently a public relations major at Texas State. Never blogged before so this should be interesting as the semester goes. 

The reasons for choosing this topic is that many college students own a dog or cat or any creature that fills your heart with warm ooze.  Having a pet and being on a student budget can be tough but there are way and resources that you can take advantage of. I am here to be your guide and advice on money saving tips that will keep your ‘furbaby’ for a long time. 

My goal is to share videos and links that are fun and informational for pet owners. My audience is mainly local college students but anyone who has or thinking about having a pet is welcome here. 

I hope to explore new ways to discuss and share about: animal shelters and rescues including affordable ways to care for your pet.


Feel free to share me a picture of you and your pet!
