Award Hoard

14 Aug

Bongo SittingI can’t believe it, person. You mean to tell me you’ve been hoarding all my awards since March. What will all my friends think who gave me those awards? They probably think I forgot about them. And now everybody will think I’m this famous, awesome blogger because I get so many awards, but most of my friends probably got lots of awards too. They just posted them more often. On second thought, I kind of like that famous, awesome blogger thing. Never mind, everybody. Just pretend I got all of these awards last week.

First, I want to give a delayed – in some cases very delayed – thank you to all my friends who took the time to give me awards. All of them have great blogs, so if some of them are new to you I hope you will click on their link and check them out.

This will be a colorful post because people and dogs like giving colorful awards – so here they are:

Sunshine AwardThe Sunshine Award came from my friends Diane and her dog Lola at Diane’s Kitchen Table, Bella and DiDi at Paws to Talk, Jet at Hey it’s Jet Here, Dianda at Cats n Co, Angels Whisper, The Thriving Pessimist, Angel and Chaos, and Jessica at I Adopted a Dog.




Versatile Blogger AwardThe Versatile Blogger Award was given to me by The Thriving Pessimist, Bella and DiDi at Paws to Talk, and Lounge Lassie.





One Lovely Blog AwardOne Lovely Blog Award comes in multiple varieties. I received one from Jet at Hey it’s Jet Here and from Fluffy Popcorn.





One Lovely Blog AwardThis one came from Zen and Genki and the Thriving Pessimist.






One Lovely Blog AwardI received this one from Bella and DiDi at Paws to Talk and Angels Whisper.






Beautiful Blogger AwardThe Beautiful Blogger Award came from Monica and her dog Henry at Monica’s Tangled Web.





Very Inspiring Blogger AwardThe Very Inspiring Blogger Award was given to me by Zen and Genki, Chuck and the Collies at Collies of the Meadow, and The Thriving Pessimist.




Hot Potato AwardThis award is a lot of fun. It’s the Hot Potato Award from Bella and DiDi at Paws to Talk.




Reader Appreciation AwardNot So Fancy Nancy is a fairly new friend. She gave me the Reader Appreciation Award.




Bassas Blog You Make Me Shine AwardMy good friend Bassa gave me the You Make Me Shine Award. Bassa was one of my first blogging friends when I started blogging and has been an encouragement to me ever since.





Blog on Fire AwardJet and Misaki both gave me the Blog on Fire Award.





Sisterhood of World Bloggers AwardBassetmomma and her two dogs Fred and Gloria honored me with the Sisterhood of World Bloggers Award – or maybe that one was for my person.





Buddha Dog AwardThis award is really unique. It’s the Beautiful Karma Award from my friend Jaz.






Tell Me About Yourself AwardLazy Hippie Mama gave me the Tell Me About Yourself Award so I guess I have to tell seven things about myself.





  1. For some reason my person won’t leave me in the yard alone. I’m not sure why. I don’t jump the fence every time.
  2. I love to get loves from cute girls.
  3. I love to catch Frisbees, balls, and anything else someone will toss my way.
  4. I’m terribly afraid of thunder.
  5. I was a rescue dog. My people adopted me from the Humane Society of Sedona and gave me my forever home.
  6. If I could be anywhere in the world it would be on my trails.
  7. I have two girlfriends, but I haven’t seen either one of them for a long time.

I was also tagged by Bubba, my dog friends Bella and Beary, and their mama at Bumpy Road to Bubba, and by my friend Cee at Cee’s Life Photography Blog. I’m supposed to answer some questions and since Cee made up a set of questions I thought I’d answer those.

1.    Where do you want to retire?

       My trails in Sedona are the best place I can think of.

2.    Which country/city in the world (that you have never been to) would you most like to visit and why? 

       I want to visit Chandler, AZ because my younger person just moved there.

3.    If you could give $100,000 dollars to one charity, what would it be? 

       A charity that helps rescue dogs.

4.    What is your favorite item of clothing and why? 

       That would have to be my Anxiety Vest that helps calm me during thunder storms. I’m wearing it               right now.

5.    Do you take the shampoos and other sundries from your hotel room when its time to check out?

       My person has never taken me to a hotel room – but I would for sure take any dog treats.

6.    What made you smile today?

       Dog treats and a walk on my trails.

7.    For your computer Mac or PC? 

       I’m confused, but my person says she uses a PC to type up my blog.

8.   Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

       I’m totally spontaneous.

9.    What is your favorite comfort food?

       Dog treats. 

10.  Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?


11.   What chore do you absolutely hate doing and you can’t say clean the bathroom or any part of it? 

        Having to do my business when it’s thundering.

I am so worn out now. This is probably the longest blog post I’ve ever written and I don’t even begin to know how to sort out who to pass all these awards on to. I have too many good blogging friends and bunches of them have already been mentioned as they passed these awards on to me. So if you have managed to read this post all the way to the end and you haven’t yet received one of these awards, please consider it yours. I’m going to take a nap.

      Thanks Delft. I think I’m starting to blush now. My person says she has a hard time getting me to stay still for the camera, but I guess I should work on doing that for you.

      Thanks Collies. You’ve been such a great supporter and encourager from almost the beginning.

    So I have had a “blog” over on Livejournal for years. But there is a lot of personal stuff in that blog, so I decided to make one that was just about my collies. But I am nont sure how all this works…are the awards you were given created by the people giving them to you? Or is there some place that you can get them, to give to other boggers? And how do you meet all these other bloggers? If there a site?

    And Congratulations! I’ve enjoyed your posts, so I can see why so many people have given you these awards! 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 15, 2012 at 6:07 pm

      Thanks Kat N Collies. Bloggers create these awards and make rules (that I don’t follow very well) and then pass them on to other bloggers. The rules are usually things like thank the person who gave you the award, tell seven things about yourself, pass the award on to seven other bloggers, and let them know that you nominated them. You usually can’t tell where these awards originated. Some bloggers make their own special awards that don’t normally get passed on by the blog that receives them. A good way to find other pet blogs is through the Saturday Pet Blog Hop and the Monday Mischief Blog Hop. Find one of my posts with a Saturday or Monday date – scroll to the bottom of the post and you’ll find an icon with a link that will get you to the participants of the blog hop. You can also click on the links in most of the comments on my site to find some great blogs, many of which are pet blogs – or the links in the awards post.

        Thanks for explaining…

        It’s all a bit confusing! I’ve found lots of interesting blogs through friends. But I wasn’t sure how to get my blog viewed by others. And I have read a few blogs that I thought deserved these awards, but wasn’t sure how you go about it…

      • Bongo

        August 15, 2012 at 9:10 pm

        On the blog hops you will be able to post a link to your blog, but the list closes in a day or two and then there is a new one the following week. Then other blogs can find you and you can find new blogs. Once you build relationships with other bloggers by reading and posting comments, some of them will start passing awards on to you which you can then pass on to others. Or you can start your own award. There is also a Wordless Wednesday blog hop hosted by Blog Paws. I don’t participate in that because I have this thing about words.

    Congratulations Bongo, all very well deserved. Mumma says saving them all up for one monster post is a good idea!!

    • Bongo

      August 15, 2012 at 6:09 pm

      Thanks Bella and Beary. My person says the awards posts take longer to do, so the one monster post saved time. But she says she just didn’t have the time until now to do an awards post.

    TWO girlfriends?? That you haven’t seen in a while?

    • Bongo

      August 15, 2012 at 6:14 pm

      Lounge Lassies, I have to keep my girlfriends separate so they don’t know about each other. Actually, neither one lives close to me and I have to by chance meet them on my trails and I haven’t seen either one for awhile. I think when the weather cools down I’ll see them again.
