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!

  1. Thank you Clowie, I loved how you tucked them away in a safe place! LOL you really dug a deep deep whole. I remember how you used to like digging in the garden, but I see you choose a remote place for this one, good thing 😀 I shall add you’re lovely nomination to my special page with a handy link back to your awesome Blog…mwaaa and cuddles. xK

  2. Me and my gang just love your, Clowie. You’re one of our favorite sites for so many reasons and all the awards you receive are so well deserved and make us happy over here. On a personal note, our biped is thrilled and deeply moved that you feel peaceful reading her posts. That’s quite an honor coming from you who exudes peace, calm, all that is good in the world, just don’t know how to adequately thank you but trust me we’re all wagging like crazy.

  3. Clowie, You are racking up the awards, they are richly deserved, Keep your paws froward !! Take care, have a great day. Bill

  4. Congratulations and many thanks for nominating me! (I’m a award-hoarder too). Can you send me this two guys? They could finish my world tunnel in zilch :o)

  5. Congratulations on all your well-deserved awards sweet Clowie. Hugs and nose kisses

  6. Just read your awards pages and you have been mightily bestowed with them! Well done on the latest batch you dug up – looking squeaky clean and shiny. Thank you so much for ours – we are really touched. We have an embarrassment of riches and one day we should try and emulate your great feat or organisation. One day…

  7. Clowie I am HONORED to be on your list!! THANK YOU!! I wish I could give you licks in pawson!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  8. Congratulations Clowie! …. I am also very impressed by the “safe” storage for your awards!! I wondered why they were digging all the roads up round where I live! That explains everything lol…although it’s possible that was a very deep crater too! 😉

    • Thank you! It was difficult to find somewhere safe enough to store them. I hope they remember to put the roads back down for you!

      • That probably depends how many awards you have hiding away! I think they burst a water pipe today 😀 The road was flooding from water bubbling merrily out of the drain lol Your bipeds really must tell those helpers to be careful about where they’re digging!! 😀

  9. Thank you so much, Clowie, for sharing with me and the others! You certainly deserve all of these. I’ve been a bit remiss in acceptance posts lately, so you’re giving me good reason to catch up, too. 🙂 I’m looking forward to checking out some of your other nominees. Have a great day!

    • You’re welcome, I enjoy your blog. I hope that catching up won’t interfere with your writing time! Thank you, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

  14. Oh Clowie, you are so kind to pass the 2013 Blog of the Year Award to me. I never saw it on anyone’s blog this whole year so assumed it had gone away after last year. You are the very first I have even seen using it and passing it along. I luvluvluv your Award Page and all your other pages. I need to do the same thing….sigh…always so much to do. I will try to pass this award along before the holiday but I may not make it; purrlease forgive me. paw hugs, Savannah

    • I was pleased to pass it to you, Savannah. I hadn’t seen the award this year until I received it a few days ago, so it was a lovely surprise. Don’t worry, pass it on when it’s convenient – we all get snowed under at times.

  15. Thank you so much Clowie! We are so very honored! We always enjoy your blog too. You have so many exciting adventures and are so smart, always knowing just what to do. You know, the type of things we kitties sleep through. Our mom is really bad about posting awards as well, but we’ll make sure she feels guilty until she does!

    • You’re very welcome! Yes, my kitties generally prefer hearing about adventures while they’re in a warm and comfortable place after a nice nap!
