Sunshine, Lolipops & Rainbows...

We just got this sunny, bright award from our long-legged Dane pal, Darwin, so before our mommy forgets who gave it to us (like usual) we made her post it. Post haste!! All we have to do is post it and pass it on. We're going to acknowledge some of our friends here right now, but open this up to all our special friends since we truly do love ya' all. So, feel free to claim this award, post it on your sidebar and make a list of buddies who have put their stamp on your hearts! We actually somehow missed our 1st bloggiversary on Feb 2nd but wanted to make sure that the dogs & their hoomans that inspired us know how much we appreciate them.

The very first poochie we met on line (around April 2008) was Bogart ~ that irresistible handsome devil! It was quite a time before we actually got our own blog but Bogie was our inspiration. Mommy talked about us on her blog, but it just wasn't the same as having our own special identity & voice. I (BabyRD) remember being amazed at all the great photos of Bogart's everyday exploits and how his family went to all the best dog-friendly spots in Portland to eat. Thanks buddy!! We love ya!

In the beginning we stuck mainly to Airedale sites so met these wonderful Dales (& Welshie!): Noah and his sisters ~ Maggie & Mitch ~ Ruby ~ Molly & Taffy (& now Monty too). It has been such a terrific trip getting to see how our mates in Australia, England and New England behave and what their lives are like. Of course we lurked in the background for awhile before we found our voice, and learned from these our predecessors.

The names Butchy & Snickers and Agatha & Archie attracted our attention right off the bat too. Catchy names and even catchier blogs! Mommy fell in love with these adorable WFT's and followed them long before our dogblog was started. If Mommy hadn't found Hootie to adopt in June 2008 she would have gotten a WFT to keep us company because of these pooches.

Well, from there we found out there are all kinds of wonderful breeds of dogs that are very easy to fall in love with. We met Chase the Puggle and were amused by his antics. He sent Hootie the very first gift he(we) ever received in the mail for his birthday last year. Yummy dog biscuits that we only ate for special occasions! Thank you for your thoughtfulness Chase. Then we met Honey who has since gone to the Rainbow Bridge. She was just a beautiful Golden girl who won our hearts. Her hoomans now are the family of Sierra Rose another swell Golden. Asta, the fabulous NYC dwelling WFT was perhaps our next pal. Her Baabaa Waawaa accent always makes our mommy laugh. And, her mama is so sweet and a brilliant artist (and
photo-shopper!!). Asta has helped us with her photo magic more than once and she is always so gracious. Martha and Bailey are Bassets that we met after Asta's Spring Fling last year. I,BabyRD, had an exciting evening with the dashing Westie, Hamish, at the Fling and have had to visit Scotland off & on ever since! Our dear friend Hamish has since gone to the Rainbow Bridge, but his girl,Gail, promises to keep in touch with us AND she has a new babypup, Bertie, coming to her home soon!! Yippee!! We made friends with Pedro a Chi-Waa-Waa from back East who collects rocks---Had to collect rocks for him on our way back home to farrr N.Idaho. Hootie had always thought Chi's were related to rodents and meant to be "chased & ett" so Pedro helped to change his mind. THen we had the most exciting time when we got to actually meet one of our fellow DWbloggers, Dr.Dre, a fiesty little Chi-Waa-Waa in person. Turns out we live in close proximity to each other up north and we llllllluuuurve Dre!! He is so funny and fun to romp with. Not at all like a rodent!! His hoomans are terrific too. We always LOL when we read his blog. Another blog that generally cracks us all up is the hilarious Life With Dogs. We wonder how they keep up with all those followers!

Well dear ones, there are so many other wonderful DWBers that we'd have to go on forever, so we will just stop here. We suggest you just go visit the DWB blogsite and visit some new blogs. So many good pooches and hoomans out there.

Have a great week ahead. Today is Palm Sunday and Mommy tells us that Easter is the very most important day of the year, so Easter week should be very special we think.

Smooches from pooches,

BabyRocketDog & Hootie

ps-There are several dear pooches that need our PawPower right now. Please pop on over to Asta's blog to read her 27thMarch post with names and links. X-BRD

Bogart was my first blogging buddy too! Then we met tons of other cool terriers and then big dogs, small dogs, all kinds of dogs.

Blogging is great!

Happy Blogoversary dear Friends!!!

Isn't it funny how you "lurk" till you start your blog??!! We 'member readin' Asta's bloggie and thinkin' how cool it was that she had so many friends right by her that she could have a James Bond pawty...little did we know it was all virtual! Then we met Axel, Gooberstan and Miss Sunshade and all the other kids...

Blogging is just amazing!

Happy Easter week to you, my dears!!

Awwww that's an awesome post. Happy blogaversary pals and big congrats on your award.

D says that they are pretty busy year round though some months are less hectic than others. April and July are very busy but our most popular time is throughout our Winter - June to August.

OMD I found your comment on Mack and Sally Ann's and watched the bun-bun video. I must say, your mommy handled it pretty well. We had a similar incident recently with Linguini over a gofer! and mom was screaming .... Your video was too cute and funny. Loud bunny!

Pedro said...

Awards & anniversay - congrats on both! We love hearing from you two dawgs! Since you watch the Iditarod do you have a question or two you want me to ask my vet for a post I'm planning? It can be a silly question. I haven't gotten many so I'd really like to get one from you :P


BRUTUS said...

Congrats on the award - the same thing happens to us when we try to "save" them for a future post! We agree, the blogging world has been a most unexpected source of friendship from all around the world! Too many fun furry friends to even try to count. We're glad you are amongst them!!

Happy Easter!
