Today is Follow Up Friday, where does the week go?
We are so excited to announce that we received not one, but two, I AM PART OF THE WORDPRESS FAMILY AWARDs this week! WOOOOF! We are so grateful. Thank You Thank You Thank You!
We received the first Family award from Vicki Flaherty at This Abundantly Delicious Life. Vicki is actually a colleague of mine and I am so impressed with her view on life, No matter what is in her way, she has found a way to look on the ‘bright side’ of the day. Vicki is new to the blogosphere and has jumped in with both feet. I am glad to be part of her cyberfamily and definitely recommend you hop on over and get a taste of her delicious life.
Then yesterday we received a wonderful second Family award from Misaki, The Misadventures of Misaki. We blogdogs go way back and we are so glad she includes us as family (thanks for not coping out, Misaki). She lives in the UK, which seems weird for an Alaskan Malamute, but I guess her ancestors got around. Follow her daily misadventures.
This is an award to celebrate those other WordPress bloggers who inspire, help and encourage us – just like a family does:
1. Display the award logo on your blog – done.
3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family
4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them
5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people who have taken you as a friend, and spread the love
My blog family is very large and I know that rule said to nominate only 10 blogs that inspire me, but I could not get it down lower than 14 sorry (and that does not including the 2 that nominated me who are family too):
(1) Speedy The Cheeky Rex Rabbit
(2) Bassa’s Blog
(3) Dakota’s Den
(5) Cupcake Speaks
(6) Heart Like A Dog
(7) The Cat From Hell
(8) Long Life Cats & Dogs
(9) My Three Moogies
(10) Golden Woofs
(11) Pepsi Smart Dog
I love reading your blogs, and though I may not have a lot of time to comment, I am there in your visitor stats, behind the scenes, every week.
To recap the week:
Last Caturday, we went sailing with Nine in the SS Stella. Everyone loved the boat I built. I found the kit at PetSmart. It took about 40 minutes to put together and a month until the cats trusted it enough to play in it. I think that toys like that really add to an indoor cats enjoyment of life.
Sunday’s Black and White picture of The Muffin Man and Sofie in the kitchen window brought back sweet memories of a great cat.. We don’t seem to have any lap cats now and that is makes us miss the ones that have passed on. Muffy, Zack, and Cuddles all were lap sitters, the current crew are not.
By the time Monday Mischief came around the cold front had past and the windows were open again. Stella and Nine are still waiting for the skinks, which should be out shortly, but he was chasing dandelion fluff on the windowsill this morning, which I think he thought was one.
Monday’s Contest – No winner, sorry. But several of you were close. The little critters were….. drum roll please ….. baby muskrats! So cute!
Tuesday had the dogs basking in the sunshine and enjoying the slow coming spring. But by Wordless Wednesday they got busy and started doing the job a dog should do: guarding their toys from intruders. Readers were very creative in what they thought they were doing, but most people agreed that Sofie and Louise traded guard duties at noon. Barking Out Loud.
We found this incredible story on Thursday about Wild Dogs in Moscow that ride the train to find food. We are grateful to the people of Moscow that let those strays have a calm and full life. (I do wish they had homes though.)
That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing along with us.
