5.31.12 Thank You to Misaki, Bella & Didi

31 May

It is so exciting to receive Blog awards.  It makes me realize that people really are reading the ramblings that I spend hours writing.  It is kind of funny but I seem to get awards in clumps: no awards for awhile and then a few at the same time.   I want to say thank you to all my readers and my commenters.  I feel like I have made some new ‘real’ friends these last few months, though I only know you through your blogs and your pictures.  In a weird way, many of us out here in Blogland show a very personal side of who we are on our blogs, and that vulnerability attracts others who also  share themselves.  I thank you all for a very enjoyable 6 months doing the DogDaz blog and look forward to many more months/years together.

The first award, the Sunshine Award, came from themisadaventuresofmisaki. Misaki is an Alaskan Malamute puppy. Though I am not sure whether Misaki is a boy or a girl (hard to tell by his blog – sorry), he enjoys eating (especially bonios), having his belly rubbed, chasing pigeons and playing with his humans. I absolutely love Malamutes and always wanted one.  That dream has yet to come true at the zoo, but maybe one day.

These are the instructions for earning the Sunshine award:

  • Link the award to the person who gave it to you – thanks Misaki!
  • Answer the questions that come with it
  • Pass it along to 10 people and let them know they have received it

Here are the questions and my answers:

Favorite number: 27 (V’s birth Day)

Favorite Non-alcoholic drink: Unsweetened Iced Tea

Facebook or Twitter: fb (even with the bad IPO)

My Passion: the animals

Favorite pattern: interesting question… I am a solids person, but none-repeating patterns are my type if anything

Favorite Day of the Week:  Sunday

Favorite Flower: I do love roses, but have really been enjoying honeysuckle this week.


Misaki also bestowed on us a Liebster Blog Award:  Thank you again oh little, soon to be giant, furry dog! The rules for this award are:

1. Link back to the person who nominated you: themisadaventuresofmisaki.

2. Nominate five (5) bloggers who have less than 200 followers (if you can tell).

3. Let nominees know by leaving a comment on their sites.

4. Post nomination image on this blog.


Then, it was a wonderful surprise to receive yet a third award.  This time from the wise duet of Bella and Didi, the Standard Poodles, of Paws to Talk.

Bella and Didi are the smartest pair of ‘Dear Abby,’ pet question answers that I have ever met.  They always seem to have some interesting piece of advice for the troubled pooch or lonely kitty.

The Poodles did not say we had to jump through any hoops for this award (Yah!)


There are so many blogs that I enjoy and when you get a lot of awards at the same time it is really hard to pass them forward, so I have created my own PICK OF THE LITTER Award.  The following bloggers get to pick one of the above awards for their very own, as well as proudly display that you are the DogDaz Pick of the Litter!

Thank you all for wonderful reading – here is the current DOGDAZ PICK OF THE LITTER:

A Window Into the Woods:

Jazzy Cat Jay:

Pat Bean’s Blog:

jmgoyder: Wings and Things:

I Adopted A Dog: Now What?

Hutchagoodlife:  (what goes around comes around…LOL)

Doggy’s Style:

Expressions In A Teacup:

Basil: Life of a famous pooch:

Mirth and Motivation:


Thank you soooooo much we love getting awards and really appreciate every single one.  Thank you Misaki, Bella and Didi for thinking highly of the zoo.  We like to ready your blogs and someday maybe we will all met in the virtual dog/cat park!

Love you guys!

Lulu Belle, Sofie Bear, The Muffin Man, Noel (the Christmas Cat), Miss Constance Kitty, Nine (the bad boy), and baby Stella – oh and Mom too!!!!
