Four awards and a confession

I’m going to get the confession out of the way first – I’ve been hoarding awards!

I have posted about some, but I have others that I have done nothing about. My biped kept a note of them for me and I put them in a safe place. She has finally finished getting the pages ready for me to display them. I thought I was just going to pop the awards into position, but it all took a lot longer than I expected because I had a few minor problems retrieving them from the safe place and then she said that I had to clean them before I could put them on the blog!

The ground had gone hard, I had to enlist some help!

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has given me an award. I really appreciate each one. I now plan to pass on the four most recent.

2013 Blog of the year

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg

This was given to me by Raani York – thank you very much! If you don’t already know her blog, I’m sure you’ll enjoy exploring it.

There are rules to follow for this award, and one of those is to explain the rules. But you can read them here!

I would like to nominate the following blogs for this award:

Cat Forsley
Easy Blog
Hutch a Good Life
The Misadventures of Misaki
Mollie and Alfie
Molly the Wally
My GBGV Life
Raani York – please collect a star!

Liebster Award


This was given to me recently by Camindogs – thank you! This blog is in Spanish, written by a specialist in canine behaviour. I know some of my readers speak Spanish and will enjoy this blog.

I would like to pass this on to a few of the newer blogs on the scene. I think the usual rules are to tell us five things we don’t already know about you and to pass the award on to a few other blogs.

Ask Writer Rabbit
Del’s Adventures
Guinea Pigs & Me
Love Is Being Owned by a Husky
Mit hundeliv
mr pip ponders

Inner peace award


This was given to me by Tails from Paris – thank you! If you don’t already know this blog, you’ll love the cartoons.

I’m not sure what the rules are on this one, but I’m passing it to some blogs that give me a feeling of peace when I visit them.

Haiku by Ku
kanzen sakura
The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap
Tylersat99’s Blog
Under The Oaks

Because you’re fantabulous


This was given to me by Ajaytao 2010 – thank you! This is another interesting blog, if you don’t already know it.

I don’t know what the rules are, but I’m passing it on these fantabulous blogs!

Across the Bored
All Fur One and One Fur All
Cascadian Nomads
Cupcake Speaks
Dakota’s Den
Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven
My Three Moggies
Pawsitively Pets
Peace, Love and Whiskers

I know some of you don’t do awards and that’s fine – just enjoy the moment!

Thank you to all my readers, you’re all wonderful.

See you next Wednesday!
