Goldman, who has been writing for i Love Dogs since 2009, was delighted that she was selected.
“It was such a surprise and honor to receive this recognition,” she said. “I love writing and animals, especially dogs, so I feel very fortunate to be able to combine my two favorite things in my work.”
The PetPR.com announcement highlights several popular stories Goldman has written for i Love Dogs, including the ongoing saga of Lennox and the controversy over convicted dog fighter Michael Vick receiving a sportsmanship award.
Goldman has also hosted on-camera interviews with Oscar-nominated actress Linda Blair and Animal Planet star Shorty Rossi. One of her blog posts was even featured on an episode of Animal Planet’s “Pit Bulls & Parolees.”
The entire i Love Dogs pack congratulated Goldman on being chosen for this honor.
“I was thrilled to read about Laura being selected,” said i Love Dogs General Manager Martha Smith. “The Featured Blogger honor is well deserved, and I couldn’t be happier for her. Her excellent writing, reporting and social-media skills have made a substantial contribution to i Love Dogs’ online and social media presence. More importantly, her eye for key stories and her compelling prose raise awareness about critical issues affecting dogs and other animals, making her a true leader in the online animal community.”
