I Got a Shout-Out

I got a blog award the other day. The most interesting thing about it, though, is that the award was from someone new...and a person! Lots of other doggies read my blog. Kitties, too. (I love kitties!) And I know some people who keep track of me this way (Hi, Grandma! Hi, Kathleen!). But I've never, ever gotten a blog award from a person I didn't know...and he's not even a person who blogs about animals!

I was honored.

My new friend's name is Dan. Here's a link to his blog. Dan's a writer, and that's the stuff that he blogs about. Here's what he wrote about my blog when he gave me the blog award:

Busy, Busy, Buttons – This site has nothing to do with writing or publishing. In fact, the author of the blog doesn’t even have opposable thumbs. Buttons, a ten-year-old Shih Tzu blogs about life as a (pampered) pooch, her occasional power struggles with her mother, and her dazzling collection of squeaky toys. I don’t really remember how I came upon this site, but I’m so glad I did; it’s a lot of fun. I defy you to read this blog in a bad mood and not be cheered up at least a little.

Isn't that awesome?! Thanks, Dan!

Of course the rules of the award are that you're supposed to tell stuff about yourself and then pass the award on to others. So, here are some things about me...

1. I love squeaky toys.

2. I don't like going poo in the rain. (He he he!)

3. I love kitties but Mom won't let me have one. I really, really want a kitty.

4. I love squeaky toys.

5. I'm a rescue doggie. Mom just adopted me a year ago. So I'm spoiled now, but haven't ever been this spoiled before. I'm living the good life!

6. I'm slowly working on a diabolical plan to get Mom to sleep in my little dog bed while I take over the big bed.

7. I love squeaky toys.

I'm not always the best at following rules, so instead of passing this award on to others, I'm going to show you a picture of me sleeping with my carrot. Enjoy!

He he he...
