Awards, Awards, Awards!!

I have gotten behind on my awards.  I have no excuses except there doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day anymore. It's not a great excuse, but it's the only one I've got. So I am going to try and catch up.

We received a Liebster award from The Chick and The Hound who writes about her life with Annie Oakley her basset hound. Thank you!

Liebster means dearest in German and the award is intended to help up and coming blogs get the attention they deserve.  As with any award there is a bit of ceremony involved.  In order to accept the award we must do the following:
1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2.Link back to the blogger who gave us the award.
3.Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers and leave a comment on there blog to let them know they have received the award.
4.Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.
Here are my picks.

Redberry Cottage
Two Doodles and A Dane
Fablulous Flo
Pawfect Days
Angus and Milo's Adventures

Thanks again to The Chick and The Hound!

Our next award is the Pawsome Blogger Award.

We received this award from three different people and can't thank each of them enough. The first from The Charming Chi, check out the five chihuahuas, second from Bentley the Basset with his words of wisdom and we all know the third, Haopee over at My Dogs Love Me.  After receiving this award we must pass it on to 8 other blogs that bring us love, laughs and furiendship. I am passing this award on to:

Two Collies and A Mutt
Dog Blessed @ Silverwalk
Tanner Trains the Family
Bunk The Pug
Pixel Blue Eyes
How Sam Sees It
We Three Doxies
Peggy's Pet Place

Thanks again to The Charming Chi, Bentley the Basset and My Dogs Love Me!

The next award was the Lief Award given to us by Urban Hounds.  We are honored. Thank you so much!

They say that Lief means sweet in Dutch so we are humbled to receive this award from such a terrific blog as Urban Hounds.  We will pass this on to three blogs we enjoy.

The Daily Oskar
Yuki and Rocket
Home is Where the Hounds Are

Thanks once again to Urban Hounds!

The next award was one of two given to us by Misty Shores Chesapeakes. We are truly honored for both.  The first is the One Lovely Blog Award.

The purpose of this award is simply to recognize the efforts of fellow bloggers and to let them know that their work is appreciated. There is no limit to how many this can be passed on to.  I love all the blogs I read but I am passing this on to two.

The Empty Nesters Family Daily
Ultimutt Pet Sitting

The second award from Misty Shores Chesapeakes is the Hope Unites Globally Hug Award. This is a truly special award and we are so honored to receive it.

You can read about this award and all it stands for here. Like Misty Shores Chesapeakes a couple of the paragraphs really stood out to me.

These people do not have to actively use the word “hope” in their work or creative talents.  They only need be conscious of their desire to make the world a better place for everyone.
These people use their available resources–a smile, a hug, a helping hand, a listening ear, a voice, time, money, possessions, education, personality, talent, websites and blogs—to make a positive impact on the world and make the world a better place to live.

You can share this award with as many blogs as you like. You can read about it here.
There are so many terrific blogs out there who share a part of themselves with us to make us laugh, make us cry and make us feel better. It is so hard to choose as all the blogs I read are great, but I am going to pass this award on to 5 people.

Dashshund Nola
Bailey Be Good
The Adventures of Higgins
Finn Howard
Hound Dog Mom

Thanks again to Misty Shores Chesapeakes for this wonderful award!

And thank all of you for bearing with me through this long awards ceremony.  I hope you all have a great weekend!  I know I will!


  1. Congratulations on your Awards and for a blog which is wonderful and entertaining.

    Always a joy to read.

  3. Congrats on your awards and thanks for giving us one. We are like you we have a few other awards we have gotten and not posted about them. So we will be busy this weekend because like you said it is hard sometimes through the week to keep up. We will do our best to get them all done, but our Peep does have 2 transports to do this weekend so she will spend time on the road tomorrow moving bassets. :) I could do this full-time but I am afraid it won't pay the kibble bill.

    Have a great day!

    Sniffs, The HoundDogs
