2.21.13 Thankful Thursday: Peace Love & Whiskers Shined On Us


We are Thankful today for Peace, Love, & Whiskers, an amazing blog about amazing animals.


Peace, Love, & Whiskers takes extra special care of some extra special pussy cats and doggies and provides us out here in the blogosphere with wonderful interviews.  You really need to go visit.  Thank you PL&W for the great work you do in highlighting kitties and doggies  that need special care and love.  Several of the DogDaz rescues, canine, feline, and guinea, have all needed a little extra love to get through their days, but they have brought us tremendous joy.  The Muffin Man, our orange and white Tom, had heart disease his whole life (2 pills a day), and was the king of our castle.  Miss Constance Kitty was born with a crooked spine, but did great with it in her early years – until the pain got to be too much.  Squash E. Bear was a two times a day insulin diabetic, who eventually went blind, but he and I would still walk a few miles every day.  Mr. Motto, the king of Guinea Pigs, had pneumonia almost immediately upon adoption.  It was very touch and go for over a month, but he lived another 7 years. Noel, the Christmas cat, has feline Herpes but she is doing great and just turned 6 last week.   So thank you Peace, Love, & Whiskers for taking up the cause of the animals that need a little extra love.

liebsterawardPL&W bestowed upon us 2 awards; the Versatile Blogger Award and the Liebster Award.  We are honored and thankful for that too.

Since we have been very lucky to receive these awards before, we hope you don’t mind but you can find our previous responses to the questions on our Awards page.  We love all awards and appreciate them, but Mom is running out of time to get her work done, take care of the zoo, and still write the blog, so she is trying to economize where she can,

We would like to bestow on Peace, Love, & Whiskers the coveted DogDaz Pick Of The Litter Award, for all the great things you do.


You get to pick any award you would like from our Awards page – because you are our pick of the litter!

6.7.12 Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award & Versatile Blogger

Thank you so much to Worldly Winds for giving us this most unusual Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award.  Worldly Winds is a lovely site full of poetry by Alexandra.  Alex describes herself as a “Buddhist, Mother, Wife, Writer, Poet, Introvert, Eccentric,” and you will see that her poetry absolutely reflects all those parts of her.  Definitely check out her poetry.  The zoo and I enjoy the deep pauses.

With the award there are “Ten Commanded” questions that I must answer, so here I go:

  1. Describe yourself in seven words.

Mother, Partner, Sister, Animal Lover, Friend, Blogger

2. What keeps you up at night?

It’s not the ‘keeps me up” but the “wakes me up” that I suffer from.  Nothing and everything.  I have not slept more than 4 hours at a time since…..  who can remember? (Memory, of course, is the first thing to go when you are sleep deprived… rofl)

3. Whom would like you to be?

Well, I like who I am, but if I had to chose, maybe Angelina Jolie.  She does good work both humanitarian and on film, is absolutely gorgeous (even without makeup), has what looks like a great relationship with her partner in life, and a bunch of fun kids.

4. What are you wearing now?

Blue jeans and a pink and purple t-shirt.

5. What scares you?

People being mad at me.  The dogs running in front of a car.  Losing someone I love.

6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?

Best – pushing myself daily to find interesting and fun things to talk about focused only on my zoo and all the incredible other bloggers I have met in blogland all around the world.

Worst – not having more time to read blogs and write comments.

7. What was the last website you looked at?  (I leave to Istanbul in a week)

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

To be more even tempered and not wear my emotions on my sleeve.

9. Slankets, yes or no?

Nooooo !!

10. Tell us something about the person who nominated you.

I did in the opening remarks, so go check out Worldly Winds and read some of her gooooooood stuff.


And to top off an already great day, the adorable guinea piggies at Hutchagoodlife bestowed upon us a Versatile Blogger Award.  I love those little cuddly wuddly boys and girls, Nibbles, Nutty, Bingo, and Buddy. Since I have been honored with this award before, I will let you see my answers on my Awards page.

Thank you so much you four little cutie patuties. You are sweet.

So in all fairness, as most of you know, I pass awards forward to new sites that I have not yet honored before but I really think that some of my old friends need a smile, so I hereby give the following blogs a DogDaz PICK OF THE LITTER Award.  You get to pick one of the above awards for your 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:

Collies of the Meadow
Bongo Dog Blog
Cupcake Speaks:
2 Brown Dawgs

Thank you and a million times thank you to Worldly Winds and Hutchagoodlife for thier wonderful acknowledgement.
