Thankful Thursday: Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

See the title of this post?

Confused? So was I!

I was awarded the:

by not one, but TWO of my favorite blogging buddies!

This award is a real honor because it is given to blogs that are found  to be enjoyable reading!

The first one to give me this award is a most BEAUTIFUL doggy named Misaki:

If you don’t know Misaki (and I bet that you DO!) Here is some info about her directly from her blog!

“I live in Essex (UK) with my human mummy and daddy. And I’m also a girl, incase you weren’t sure.

I enjoy eating (especially bonios), having my belly rubbed, chasing pigeons and playing with my humans. They both need the exercise.”

The second bloggers to give me this award are the beautiful Lexie and Mica from:

Tylers at 99’s Blog

I love viewing photos of their many hikes and viewing the lovely photos of nature that they feature. Here is some information about this great blog!

” Hi we are Lexie & Mica, two Newfoundlands that enjoy taking long walks through the woods. We have a beautiful creek in the woods and we enjoy swimming every chance we get. We live in Ohio, USA and want to share our walks with you.
Newfoundlands are Working Dogs. We are cart dogs, but more importantly we are water rescue dogs. This means we are people dogs and bond very strongly with our people and each other. We rarely allow our people out of our sight for long and some of us have been referred to as Velcro dogs because we never leave your side.
Newfs are very large strong dogs and therefore MUST be trained early. Once trained we are very obedient and gentle and make fantastic and fun pets :)

Of course this award comes with rules, and one of the rules for acceptance of this award  states that I must complete this phrase:

“A great reader is…”

In my humble Sheltie opinion, to me, “A great reader is someone with a love of the written word. Who finds themselves lost in the mind and heart of the writer. Who respects the power of words and the emotions that they evoke. It is someone who is curious, who has a good imagination and who believes that we not only learn from each other every day, but more importantly we should NEVER stop learning!”

Pretty deep thought for a Sheltie, eh? I have told you before we didn’t rate 6th on the intelligence scale for nothin’!

There is another rule that comes with this award and as  always, being an obedience school drop-out, I am  going to break it because it requires you to pass this on to FOURTEEN OTHER BLOGGERS! OMD!!

I  know that MANY of you have already received this AND as I always say, IF I FOLLOW YOU, I FIND YOU TO BE ENJOYABLE READING…so PLEASE grab this if you have not received it with love from ME to YOU!

Barks and licks and most appreciative love,

  1. Love da attitude dude!
    I am always so obedient. I think it is because The Producer was trained in Switzerland where rules are rules and you cannot break them and if you do something it can be wrong even if you didn’t see a sign saying you couldn’t because there wasn’t a sign there that said you could! (Little bit of repressed bitterness in there I think, unresolved anger over a motorway vignette fine!!).

    • Hi Zena!! BOL!!!! Mom wants “The Producer” to come here and share her training tricks….I don’t think that it is a good idea but SHE does!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota PS: can’t wait to read about how you and Raffles are doing!
