Bark!!!! Our Very First Blog Award

Happy Thursday everyone!!!! Trev and I have some special news to share…We received our very first blogging award!!!!


Our first order of business is to send out a super BIG Thank You to Oz at: oztheterrier who barked and bestowed this award on us!!!!
Oz is a fellow Cairn Terrier that Trev and I met our first week of blogging. Oz shares his life from his doggie point of view and is always up to something fun and we recommend adding him to your blog roll to join in his adventures!!!! Again, Oz, thank you so very much for sharing this award with us!!!!

Here’s the rules for this award:

1) Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you…

2) Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back to them…

3) Answer 5 simple questions (These are simple?)…

A) If you could change one thing, what would you change?
I would invent an awesome product called puppy juice!!!! It would be a powdered drink we add to our dog’s water (tasting like chicken or beef, whatever your fur baby likes best) and it would make them be a puppy again. This way, your best buddy could be by your side forever!!!! Wouldn’t you buy it?

B) If you could repeat an age, what would it be? Any year?
Oh, I don’t want to go back to any particular age. I’ll take the age I’ve been blessed with now, embrace it and keep hoping for the best! I would like to feel younger though because I’m raising a toddler and caring for and nurturing a senior dog who is 13 years young. Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with an amazing husband to walk beside me on this journey.

C) What is one thing that really scares you?
It scares me to think about my life without our Trevor Bear. Every loving dog owner knows this feeling all too well. The best we can do is enjoy each day and treat it as the blessing it truly is. Trev has been by our sides through so many life experiences: job changes…our wedding day…my pregnancy (I remember becoming so big towards the end that Trev couldn’t fit on my lap without slipping off my knees)…the birth of our child…and loves us more through all of it!!!! He knows he’s our top dog.

D) What is one dream you have not completed and do you think you will be able to accomplish it?
Oh yes, I dream of becoming a published writer one day. Blogging is just my first step.

E) If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
I think it would be fabulous to be Ginger Rogers. I would like to know what it was like to dance with Fred Astaire. After an afternoon of dancing, I would be a veterinarian and help a pregnant mare deliver her baby colt. That would be a cool day…agreed?!

4) Display the award on your blog somewhere…

5) Nominate up to 20 blogs for the award and notify them…






















Trev and I wish to share the blogging wealth with all of you on our blog roll. For those I nominated who do not wish to participate, that’s more than fine. We just want you to know we truly enjoy reading your posts!!!!

  2. Congratulations. How exciting, getting your first award. Thank you so much for passing it on our way. I really do appreciate it. I agree with you on your biggest fear. I think it’s the same for all of us but I like your beef flavoured juice – that’d solve everything!

  3. *highpaws* Thank you so much Trev…I love awards cause we know it means I’m making someone happy…I love reading everyone’s answers and learning a bit more about my fellow bloggers…And I agree on question C} Always in the back of my mind is that unhappy knowledge that Giz will not always be with me…But that reminds me to cherish every day we do have together

  4. Thank you so much for nominating my blog…it makes me happy to hear that readers enjoy my blog! Mom worries about being without us girls too especially now that my big sis is 10 1/2, but we can’t dwell on it and try to just enjoy every day we have together. I am also working on some book ideas…we will see if they ever get into a book store!

  5. Yay!!!! I am so happy that it was your first award and that you loved it!!! What wonderful answers. You had us smiling. And I will have to check out some of those blogs you nominated…I don’t know everyone on there. Uh-oh…time to make more friends, I think. *zoomies in a circle*

    • Zoomies in a circle…We love that!!!! I crack up every time you post those…smile…You are so precious Oz!!!! Thank you again for the awesome award…It’s such a great way to find new blogs to follow…Trev sends a high paw and we both send big hugs to both of you!!!!

  6. Congratulations on receiving this really cool award, and I truly appreciate you passing it on to Taylor and me! It was great to get to know you further with this post…I, too, hate to think about life without my dog! I’ve already experienced it once before, which led to the buildup of quite a lot of anxiety after we adopted Taylor. But Taylor has taught me to just relax and enjoy every single moment of the life we have together…why waste away the days in a cloud of worry?

    • You are so welcome!!!! Those are very wise words my friend!!!! They are our little angels, we just can’t see their wings…Woofs and wags to you and Taylor…Have a fabulous weekend!!!!
