Some Cool Awards To Pass On

Checkers the Peek-a-Poo has given us two really cool awards and we are honored. They are the Proximidade Award and the Neno's Award. Thank you so much for thinking of us when you are in such poor health Checkers. You are a real sweetie and so selfless. If our friends here haven't gone over to Checker's blog, please give it a peek(a-poo!!). Thanks Checkers, we posted a thank you on the sidebar for you! Check it out.

Here are the write-ups on these awards:

This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award. (All this prize requires is to pass it on!)

Neno's Award: ~As a dedication for those who love blogging activity and love to encourage friendships through blogging.

~To seek the reason why we all love blogging.

~Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.

~Don’t forget to mention the person who gives you the award.

~Answer the Award’s question by writing the reason why you love blogging.

~Tag and distribute the Award to as many people as you like.

~ Remember to notify the awardees and put their links in your post.

Hootie: Okey dokey. The reason I love blogging is that it keeps me off the streets. No, not really, cuz I was never really on the streets. Well, once, but that's for another post. Back on subject. I love blogging because it lets me interact with others from other walks of life. Whether getting to take a virtual tour through a park or museum in Europe or sharing a hot dog with a new friend at a sidewalk cafe' in Portland, it makes me feel like I'm a part of something bigger than myself. Yes pups, I am a deep, deep doggy!!

Baby Rocket Dog: Oh my, Hootie is a real little philosopher! My turn. I love blogging because it lets me express my thoughts and share them with others. Not that they are all that deep, but it's just a lot of fun.

We're going to try to find some doglettes that haven't yet received these awards. SO, here are our awardees: Amy, Betty and Hersey from Unglazed, Opy the Original Gruff Puppy, Marvin The Hollow Hound, Hamish the Westie, Hamish (the Airepup!),Tinkerbell,Oscar and Tucker at You Had Me At Arf!, Noah and the girls from Noah's Bark, Sally from across the pond, the famous (they have over 500 followers!!)Sola, Nigel and Fudgepants at Life With Dogs, the 4 sweeties at Rocky Creek Scotties , and lastly Molly and Taffy our British doppelgangers. Congratulations to you all! Don't forget to visit everyone's blog.

Toodles for now,

Hootie & Baby Rocket Dog

Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Congrats on your awards and thanks for passing them on to us. We love the new picture. We don't think Mom would ever get one of us doing something like that - we just burst through the door - especially Piper - who loves to run from room to room barking his "toy" bark.

Have a Wonderful Wheelie Wednesday.
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Hey Pupperinos!

We here in GooberStan have missed you so stinkin' much! We're back now, and happy to see that you are getting the recognition you deserve. I always had my suspicions that Hootie was a deep river. (You are a sage, my little fuzzy friend.) Baby, we love hearing all you have to say. You do it with panache and you make it fun!

So tell me, just whose schnoz is that in the photo at the top of this post? Hmmm?

Goober love,

Always good to know more about our friends.

Hamish Westie said...

Hi there
Congratulations on the awards, and many thanks for nominating me to receive one. I'm very honoured, but I'm afraid I'm a bit too old for that sort of thing, and we Westies are known to have an excess of self-esteem anyway! But I do hope Baby Rocket Dog will still be 'special' friends with me...
Cheers, Hamish

The OP Pack said...
