Liebster Blog Award

Mom and I are completely shocked!! I barely get a chance to post ANYTHING on my blog and I received ANOTHER award? Wow!! People sure must be desperate to give ’em out!

Anyway, we were super touched to be given the Liebster Blog Award by Ellen DeRamus Frasheski ,but do you know what we are incredibly EMBARRASSED about?

We don’t know the title of her blog to link to her!!!

We sent her an email to thank her and asked her to tell us the name of her blog, but she hasn’t responded. We sure hope that she does so we can edit this after it publishes!

For those who aren’t familiar with it,  the Liebster Blog Award is for blogs that have 200 followers or less (YEP that would be ME! BOL!) Liebster is a German word that means “dearest” or “beloved” it can also mean “favorite” (all great words!!) and we are honored that someone anyone views us in that light!

The requirement of this award is to pass it on to 5 other deserving blogs that have 200 or less followers. Normally we don’t single blogs out on such a requirement, because we LOVE ALL of the blogs that we follow, but today we want to pick the 5 that we feel might not get the attention that they deserve.

Cat From Hell- yep this is a cat blog about kitties, Nellie and Kozmo but it also features “hairy slobbery sisters” (Bob and Cinnamon) who happen to be DOGS!! Nellie and Kozmo are always up to mischief and their Mommy is one of the nicest people we have ever met on the Internet and we feel they are worthy of this award! In fact, they are soooo worthy that they just received it the other day! Too bad, they’re getting it again! Oh and Nellie and Kozmo, tell your Mom not to worry about posting about it…she’ll understand what we mean!! BOL!!

"Eva The Sheltie"

Eva The Sheltie– ohhhh yes we are biased!! See the name in the title of this blog? It features a Sheltie!! Not any ordinary Sheltie mind you, but one of THE MOST STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL and sweet Shelties on the PLANET!!! This is one of the first blogs that my Mom ever followed. She has been following this blog since she started writing Cody’s blog back in 2010!! She has gotten to know Eva’s Mom (Priscilla) and her beautiful and talented daughter (Rosie) on the Internet and loves them as if they are family. Heck, in our book they ARE family!

Kame & Kroten Blog– a blog about TURTLES! Yes sireee!!! Turtles who happen to be SISTERS!!! On this blog you will see some of the most beautiful photos of turtles and the funniest turtle videos!! Mom and I learned through reading this blog that turtles have much in common with doggies and kitties! Our parents love us all just the same and turtles show love for their parents in ways that are different from the love that doggies and kitties show but it is LOVE just the same!

Sara Loves Dogs- another blog that features SHELTIES!! The Shelties featured on this blog are named Oreo (yep he is black and white like the cookie and just as delicious-looking!) and Chewy, a Sheltie not-so-much-of-a-puppy anymore who is full of Sheltie swagger, and she also occasionally features their other Sheltie, Misty, a sweet, gentle and lovable girl who had to cross the Rainbow Bridge to visit my Mom’s kitty, Bobo! Their Mom makes some of the best training videos that we have ever seen!  Sara’s Shelties know so many tricks and obey so many commands, she fully utilizes the intelligence that Shelties are known for by giving them tasks/tricks to challenge their intellect. She doesn’t let them sit like a lazy lump like my Mom does!


Snoopy’s Dog Blog  last but definitely not least is my buddy Snoopy! Snoopy is a Bearded Collie (but he doesn’t shave even if he has a beard, he is too young for that BOL!) It says on Snoopy’s blog that Bearded Collies are known for their “beardie bounce”  Snoopy is a good buddy of mine and is LOTS of fun! I can just imagine him “bouncing” all over his neighborhood! He is always having fun adventures and he is a blast to read about!

These obviously aren’t nearly all the blogs that we follow and love but these are just a few that we love that have 200 followers or less (or at least we think so!) that we wanted to share with you in hopes that you will enjoy them as much as we do!

If we didn’t mention you we are sorry!!! We can’t mention everyone but we LOVE YOU ALL JUST THE SAME!

To the blogs that we featured: Mom and I are NOT asking you to post about this award unless you want to and have the time to do so! We often can’t post about them either due to a lack of time or Mom just spazzing as always, so we COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND! Just accept it please and we hope you enjoy it as much  as if I gave you my favorite BONE! BOL!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  10. When I saw the avatar photo of a sheltie, I had to weigh in on a photo I took – quite without planning, of a friend’s sheltie, Callie, at a Christmas party over a year ago. She so definitely wanted to be photographed. She parked herself in front of me and smiled! Here’s a link to that photo:

    We ourselves have always had shelter dogs. One of the most remarkable was a German Shepherd/Sheltie cross that was an amazing and wonderful, life-saving companion for all of us, and especially me. I am including a story about her in my post called “Stayin’ Alive,” Part 2 tomorrow (Thursday) that might interest you and your family. All the best to you! Keep barkin’ along!

    • Hi Paula! so great to meet you! I just went and looked at the photo and just loved it!!!! Dakota is just like that smiling at the camera! lol

      I am now following your blog and I have “liked” you on facebook….it is a pleasure to meet you!
