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.
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.
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.
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!
