2.22.13 Follow Up Friday: The ‘Why I Love Thee’ Award

22 Feb

fish81Two follow ups for this week.  First is on the post I did about Blog Fishing.  We got wonderful comments from so many people on what they do to try and handle all the blogs they want to read.  Jodi, from HeartLikeADog, suggests Google Reader, so I am going to give that a try.   Lots of people say they read only what comes in their email.  These are all great ideas to Blog Fish.  Thanks for the comments.      


And secondly this week we received a lovely “Why I Love Thee” award from our little friend Kirby, at Kirby’s Dawg Blog.  Kirby is just the cutest little thing. He is about 10 months old, and he and his human, Lea, really enjoy all things blog.  It looks like they have a lot of fun.  Thanks for the award, we are honored to be chosen.   


The rules of this award are quite straightforward.

First you thank the friend who passed the award to you – thank you very much, Kirby! And link to their blog – see above.

Then, if you’re an animal, you tell everyone why you love your bipeds (your people). If you’re a biped you tell why you love your animal(s), or why you love animals in general, or anything you like about love. (Clowie, of Clowie’s Corner, who gave Kirby the award, who then gave it to us, added the last two because, she said that not all bipeds are lucky enough to have animals living with them.)

Then you pass the award on to at least one other blogger.

Why I love my bipeds – by Louise (aka Lulu Belle)

I love my bipeds because they make me feel safe.  Mom taught me that not every biped is cruel and will hurt me.  The family, especially the little big bipeds, give me a tons of cuddles and let me sleep on their beds.  The best thing about my family is that they are mine.  I know that they will always be with me and that they will always protect me, and I them.  Also, they brought me my little sister, Sofie Bear, that I love very much. (But Mom, I could do without the felines!)  

Now I pass it on to 4 blogs that I love:


Dakota’s Den

My Three Moogies

Golden Woofs

    You are so sweet, LuLu! Congratulations on your award. I am in total agreement about the felines. I don’t have any in my house, but outside, they hide under cars and behind shrubs and I’m pretty sure they’re trying to kill me.

    Love and licks,

      The ones in my house are scary enough, but out in the wild, no way I am going near them. – Lulu Belle

    you kind of totally misquoted what I said. Geeze! I had said that while I understand people are busy and I DO NOT expect people to read every post, that if I notice for MONTHS that I am following someone who never comments, then I would unfollow. Geeze……..I’m not THAT BAD!!! WOW.
    Anyway. Thanks for the award…I think lol

      Sorry. Didn’t mean to misqoute. I think your idea has merit. Thanks for the clarification.

    Congrats on your award! 🙂
    I find it hard to keep up with a lot of the blogs I really enjoy too. I just get there when I can and try my best to comment when I can.

    • dogdaz

      February 22, 2013 at 14:51

      Me too. That is all one can do, I think

    What a wonderful follow up. I use Google Reader to get through all the blogs I follow…I like it…but I also use my friends list on my blog (which you are on) so I read the blogs most important to me first! Congratulations on your award. You totally deserve it!
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Oz (and Gina)

      Thanks Oz and GIna. I need to update my follow list (and maybe clean it up). I too have a certain list of blogs that I just automatically check on. – Lorian

    Thanks for participating in FUF! I use both e-mail and google reader to keep up with all of the blogs that I like to read. 🙂 Congrats on your great award. Well deserved!

      Thanks. A 2 prongs strategy seems to be working for many.

    Congratulations on your award. I use Google reader everyday to read blogs. I also use WordPress, but most of my blogs are on my google reader. I don’t like to subscribe by email because I get a lot of emails as it is.

    • dogdaz

      February 23, 2013 at 15:28

      I agree Ann. It is so hard to sort out the email.
