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.
