I’m so disappointed. My snow is going away. But that’s not all bad because now there is lots and lots of squishy mud on my trails.
I met a dog on the trails today who wanted to play with me, but every time he got too close he would change his mind and run off the other way.
But then I remembered that one of my blogging friends that I recently met gave me an award. The Kreativ Blogger Award. The friend who gave me this award is Patrecia aka misswhiplash. She lives in Bulgaria and has five dogs, two donkeys, and a cat with three legs. Her posts are a lot of fun to read and you can find them at http://misswhiplash.wordpress.com.
I’ve never seen this award before which means I can pass it on to some of my bestist favoritist blogging friends (that I haven’t already passed an award to) and maybe this will be the first time they receive it. I know there are still lots of other blogs I love – I wish I could pick all of you.
But first I’m supposed to tell you 10 things about myself that you wouldn’t know. This is really hard. I tell you everything – well, almost everything. So I’ll tell you 10 things that some of my newer friends might not know.
1 My people rescued me from the Sedona Humane Society about six years ago.
2 I pretend I don’t like Scratchy (the cat) but I really do. (Don’t pass this on.)
3 I’m deathly afraid of thunder.
4 I don’t like olives.
5 I get really upset when Scratchy steals my blog.
6 I love squeaky toys.
7 I get to stay inside most of the time because I’m an escape dog.
8 I love kids who stand about my height – but most of them say I’m a slobbery dog.
9 Catching Frisbees is one of my favorite things to do – and I’m really good at it.
10 I really enjoy getting to meet so many dogs and people because of my blog.
Now I get to pass on this award to six of my blogging friends. I’m picking dogs again, so if you’re a blogging person I still love you, but I seem to have this affinity for other dog’s blogs. Maybe it has something to do with…?
I think Bassa was the first dog to find me when I started blogging, which was a real encouragement to me. She has been one of my favorite dog blogging friends ever since. She is a Caucasian Shepherd dog who lives in Tbilisi, Georgia (the country – not the state). Bassa and her tall person take walks through and report on their neighborhood, which is very different from the neighborhood where I live. Bassa’s blog is at http://bassasblog.wordpress.com/.
Rumpy also found me very soon after I started blogging. Rumpy is a malamute with some very fascinating blog posts including interviews with some interesting animals from all over the world. Rumpy even interviewed me. Rumpy sometimes allows DeDe the dog to give advice on the blog and June Buggie the cat to get on the blog and rant. You can find Rumpy at http://rumpydog.wordpress.com/.
I found Lola when her person let her be a guest blogger. She was blogging about hiking in my home town. Lola knows where to hike for sure. Last month Lola got to be a guest blogger quite often because her person was busy writing for NaNoWriMo (where you have to write a 50,000 word novel all in the month of November). Lola and her person can be found at http://sharyhover.com/.
The 2 Brown Dawgs always have some wonderful pictures on their blog and I’ve learned a lot about what a hunting dog does. They will also be adding a puppy to the mix very soon so there will be three brown dawgs. I’m looking forward to more puppy pics which will be coming to http://2browndawgs.com/.
Iowa Dog Blog has great pictures and stories about Duke and Gertie and sometimes other things dogs. A recent post gave great tips on photographing dogs – something my person needs to learn since I’m not always very cooperative. This blog is at http://iowadogblog.wordpress.com
I’m not sure Mumsy is always happy with Chancy’s gardening efforts in Chancy the Gardener, but they are both very sweet and are also joined by several other animals at http://chancythegardner.wordpress.com/
I wish I could give all my friends an award but I’m all worn out now. I think I’ll sleep and get all rested up – so tomorrow I can go out and have more adventures.

Congratulations on your award and thank you for including us. We are honored to be named with so many great blogs. We learned something new from your posts (like you are afraid of thunder, we hope it is thunder and not Thunder 🙂 and that you are an escape artist…we need tips :)). We can’t wait to share the award with others.

December 6, 2011 at 3:54 pm
Brown Dawgs, you definitely deserve this award. I love your posts – and yes, it is thunder I’m afraid of. I would love the chance to play with Thunder. If we ever get together I’ll give Thunder and Storm some great escaping tips.

Congrats on your award Bongo (and your past week of awards!!) We know and love almost all the blogs you gave awards to except Lola. We can’t wait to check out her blog 🙂
December 6, 2011 at 5:27 pm
Thanks Deannamelanie, I think you’ll really like Lola too.
December 7, 2011 at 12:13 am
A very well deserved award.

Congratulations Bongo – you have a great blog and deserve many more awards! Thank you so much for nominating my blog for this award. Like you, I haven’t seen this one before. Congratulations to all of your other nominees – you are all winners!
December 7, 2011 at 9:11 am
Thanks Bassa. I always look forward to reading your blog.
December 7, 2011 at 6:37 am
Congratulations Bongo!!! That’s great that you got the award! Thanks for telling us 10things about you that some of them were quite new to me! It was good to know you better!
I love Rumpy’s and Bassa’s blogs very much! All of you make me happy and feel good after readng your blogs!!! I’m so glad that I met you! 🙂
December 7, 2011 at 9:15 am
Thanks Kevin. I’m glad we met too. If you hang around long enough I don’t think I’ll have any secrets left.
December 7, 2011 at 7:33 am
Congrats, Bongo! You deserve it! And I think that dog that wanted to play was just too scared. Sometimes they’re like that. I hate when they do that though. Just play! 🙂 Congrats again on the wonderful award!
December 7, 2011 at 9:16 am
Thanks Katie. I didn’t think I was that scary, but that dog did act like he was scared to get any closer. I know, I bet he was scared of my person.
December 7, 2011 at 12:04 pm
This dog … I understand his gesture, I think, because I do the same with a dog I used to play with as a friend, but one day something bit me very badly in my mouth, and I thought it was him! Puzzle told me, it must have been his brand new collar with metall applications, but I cannot trust anymore. Each time, I see him, I would love toi play with him again, but if he gets nearer, I am afraid of another hurt!
December 7, 2011 at 12:23 pm
B0ng0, you might be right. Maybe somebody hurt that dog once. It would have been fun to play with him.
December 7, 2011 at 1:58 pm
Bongo. You live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, you lucky dog, you. 🙂
December 7, 2011 at 2:34 pm
Thanks Leslie – my person thinks it’s beautiful here. I’m just happy for my trails.
December 7, 2011 at 4:06 pm
Well-deserved, Bongo! =)
I had an inkling that you like Scratchy secretly and I’m pretty sure the feeling’s mutual. 😉
I’m going to check out these blogs you’ve posted here (except Bassa’s and Lola’s/Shary’s because I already read those).
December 7, 2011 at 4:20 pm
Nel, please don’t tell Scratchy. He’d never let me live it down. I think you’ll really enjoy all the blogs I’ve posted. They’re all very good.
December 8, 2011 at 1:26 am
Well done Bongo! Well deserved I say. :0) I love these awards, it’s such a great way to find blogs that you haven’t seen before!
H and Flo
ps. I suspected that you might have a soft sport for Scratchy.
December 8, 2011 at 9:23 am
Thanks Flo. I think you’ll enjoy the other blogs – but please don’t tell Scratchy what I said. I’ll never hear the end of it.
December 8, 2011 at 1:27 am
Er… that should be spot, not sport… unless you have a soft sport for Scratchy too. 🙂
December 8, 2011 at 9:24 am
Flo, I do like to play sport with Scratchy – but most of the time he doesn’t want to play.
December 8, 2011 at 8:16 am
Good dog, Bongo (everyone knows) Thanks for the blog list.
December 8, 2011 at 9:27 am
Thanks Karen. I think you’ll enjoy the blogs on the list.
December 8, 2011 at 3:07 pm
Congratulations Bongo!!!!! YAY!!!!
