What a nice surprise to receive an award from my friend Misaki at “The Misadventures of Misaki.”
Misaki is an Alaskan Malamute (I absolutely love love love Malamutes and always wanted to have one, but it just has not happened yet.). She lives with her Mummy and Daddy in Essex, England and has a fascination with Bonios (a United Kingdom dog treat, I assume).
Thank you so much.
And as with most awards on the blogosphere, there are some rules that one must follow to accept:
1. Thank the giver who has bestowed on us this award – so, thank you again Miss Misaki the Beautiful.
2. Link back to Misaki’s blog
3. Talk about why I blog and why I started blogging (see below).
I started this blog in late November 2011, to chronicle the antics of my rescued managerie of animals: Louise (aka Lulu Belle) my very shy 58lb (26kg) maybe Plott Hound/Black Labrador Retriever mix (3 years old next month), Sofie Bear (who will be 2 in November), my 48lb (21kg) maybe Corgi/Sheltie mix (who was suppose to be big Collie/Shepard dog), and the house cats: The Muffin Man (aka, Muffy, 18), Noel, the Christmas Cat (5), Miss Constance Kitty (4 1/2). and the kittens, Nine (19 mo) and Stella (1 year). We lost many of the zoo over the years and their spirits and stories visit the pages from time to time, especially my soul-dog-mate, Squash E Bear, who past over in February 2010. I guess deep down, I started the blog so that I could explore a different kind of social connection to animal lovers everywhere, which I felt in turn would help me understand myself and my zoo better.
4. Post the Award (see above).
5. Nominate 10 other bloggers for the award.
10 – I can only nominate 10 – I can’t do that! Ok I have capped it at 16 that I truly am addicted to and miss when I do not read them regularly. There are a lot more that I try and visit too, it is impossible at this point.
