“The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and ‘pay it forward’ in their own way. This is how it works… We are going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn you will do the same on your blog. There are no cost restraints, BUT don’t go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness doesn’t have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go – just look around.”

I also has kindly be gived some awards.

This one come with a little tag too.
“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.”

Why I love blogging:

It get me lots of attentions from Mum, I sure I would get attentions without blogging but with a place to show off my adventures it make her want to take me on more and get my things to post about BOL! Of course my real reasons be to meet all other furkids out there and learn about them. It a good cultural experience too Mum say and it make a good hobby for her rather than sitting watching tv and stuffs like that. It also a good way for Mum to learn tips and stories from other dog owners.

I will pass this one onto Gus and Waldo, Travis, Suzuki, and Maggie and Mitch.

okies, all done.

lots of things

This is gonna be a busy post today! I has two tags to do and my tricky T-day blooper vid!

Zim gived me this award. Thanks so much Zim, Stormy, Amber and Dave.
I has to list 5 reasons why life is grand. Of course life be very grand for me, here some reasons why:

1. Mum makes me life grand, she looks after all my needs and is my very best friend. She takes me on fun walks and we has a good time together and I know I makes her life grand too.

2. Grandpawents are also very nice and although Mum says she and grandpawents try each others patience sometimes we is very lucky that they let us come and live with them when she and old Daddy did that breaking up thing, otherwise I might not have beed able to stay with Mummy, so we owes them a lot and we know they has had to put up with us invading their space, when they has moved into a little bungalow to retire and live by the sea by theirselves which really not big enough for us all. Someday soon we hope we’ll be out of their hairs again. Nanny reads my blog sometimes so I hope she sees this.

3. All my toys and playing with them make life grand!

4. Living by a beach makes life grand, I can go and run around off lead whenever I wants and I know that make me a very lucky dog.

5. All of you! Me and Mum loves blogging and the great community of friends we has now. Originally Mum only intended to help me do my blog whilst I was a little puppy. But we is still going now and I thinks we is hooked!!

I is supposed to pass this along to 5 others, it always so hard to choose. This time it gonna go to the potential loves in my life, Gabbi (and co), Kylie, Morgan and I is also gonna pass it onto Vodka and Suzuki I casnot wait to see why all your lives is grand.

Here be my blooper video. It not a very good one as mum has deleted most of the older stuffs. You know what I has realised, it not my blooper video, it Mum’s. Don’t you all agree. If anybody wonders for some reason Mum finds it really funny when peoples or furries stick their necks out like tortoises. I was just looking to see if there beed any treats on the sofa.

So there you go, my blooper is my tricky T-day this week. BOL!
Sometimes Auntie Penny is really annoying, she never plays or does anything with me and I get mad at her when she be in my way or stealing my attentions or getting all barky and excited. Lately she has begun sleeping on MY (Mum says HER) bed. Which she not allowed to do!!
Still, she does be warm. Mum says probably Penny has decided we is staying and that Mum is back to being her mum now. I does not think so Auntie Penny! You is grandpawents dog!

Mum has also beed stealing my furs again. Can you believe that Penny just loves to be brushed? She sits whining until it be her turn! That little blob of fur at the side of mine is from Penny.

phew, what a busy post!!

Mother’s day,Tricky T-day, awards

Mum liked the piccure of The Knight’s Saturn (think it was Saturn) holding a flower so much she went and found one of them yellow mum flowers what are called Daffodils and took some piccures with it. She did one with Faline too, but she just tried to eat it. Molly said it was too cold to come out of his house. You can see his white nose over at the door there.

I am not very good at holding things. What does mum think I am, a retriever?? I think I am better at it than Faline though. Hey, I met some cows when we went out to find the daffodil, I will post about them on thursday or friday though as there be a very special post by two friends of mine tomorrow. I is letting them has a guest spot on my blog.

Also, for Tricky T-day this week we is learning ‘yes’ and the elephant trick. Oreo and Misty can do this very good. Here I be still learning it. I’s just got back from school tonight, we did good jumping through hoops and lots of boring obedience work like heels and sitting in hoops and stays and boring attention work like Dexter is doing now. But mum did give me the biggest hugs ever after a big long sit stay. As we is in the freestyle class each one starts off with us dogs demonstrating a trick we has beed learning that week, so it a good thing I has tricky T-days huh? Me and mum does not know what we can show next week.

Mum is gonna try and put together that ‘blooper reel’ of my trainings too. I think she be mean to be showing that, cos then everyone will think I is not so clever anymore.

I is also soo happy cos I got two very cool awards!!
This one from Travis for my review of the D. Beagles on his weekly blog review club. You should all go play, it a fun game.
Thanks so much Travis, you is a cool guy!

And this one from my little friend Vodka Although I guess I not that bigger.

I would like to pass this on to: The Army of four, they is wise dogs and I always learn lots from them. Reilly, who be such a cool cowspot dog and has good advices for a young pup like me, Ricky, who is another cool guy and is my agility teacherer and the Beautiful Misty and handsome Oreo who is my fellow trick learners and also agility teacherers. I would like to give it to all my friends in my side bar but officially I thinks I be only allowed to pick 4 pups to pass it on to but Mum say you always need one more for luck. So I will pick Addie and Lucie, cos they is beautiful and fun and their mom’s food giving for the shelter is truly fabulous.

Huskee and Hershey tagged me with this award. How pawsome!

“When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog”. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!”

  • Sometime I try to chase Faline, even though I not allowed
  • I is a hoover for crumbs and pretends I is wanting a hug but is really searching for crumbs
  • I tell Auntie Penny off if she is barking near Mum.
  • I like to bite Grandpaws thumbs.
  • If I is bored I dig things like my bed, or mum’s bed
  • If I is not getting attentions enough I go to the door and bark like I wants to go out for a whizz. BOL! But I is really going out to see the rabbit-dogs
  • I is a bit snobby with other dogs and peoples I meet out on walks.
  • I know I is not allowed to bark at Auntie Penny so insteads I get a squeaky toy and squeak it lots and hit her with it. Ruffruff.
  • I like to bark! And make all sorts of noises, mum say I sound like a wokkie.
  • I like to eat everything, as long as someone I likes gives it to me. Even if it not edible.

I is gonna pass it onto Essex and Deacon, Morgan, Josh and Jess, Scottie and his sissies, Reilly, Suzuki, Dawn and Katie and anyone what has not done it yet. It be so hard to just pick 7 who I want to hear about their naughties. BOL! I hopes some of you will pick some of the others who I want to read about. (has changed Stella as she already done it.)

Bored bored bored.

I is having to be naughty again cos I is bored bored bored. It been horrid windy rainy here. So the peoples does not want to go outside, only quick. Their furs they take on and off must not be good enough. Plus mum says I has become a teenager, I has beed trying to attack my bed but it just too tough! We has been playing lots of games indoors, trying to teach Penny stuffs and other thing but I still pretty bored. I is not allowed on the chairs anymore either cos I tooked Grandpaws cake. BOL! It sure was worth it!

Penny almost played with me a little bit. Penny not really like toys, but she get one when the peoples go out and come back in again. I try to play with her, but she always tattle on me to mum and say I is taking her toy. Normally I not mind, but today she got my toy!

See her silly eyes looking at mum to say help? I is strong enough to take my toy back off Penny I thinks, but she do have a bit of a strong grip… I is not gonna say that I lost, cos I is a boy after all but Mum is making me show you this piccure.

I only let her win cos she my Auntie.

I been playing lots with my toys lately, Mum say she is making me be tidy and she has gone and putted them all in a box. Well at first I thought this be a bad idea and kept taking them out, but then I thought it fun to take them out and mum put them back BOL! Also they is all handy for when I wants them. The box be much fun too!

I glad you all like my cowspot frisbee I might has to call is Reilly BOL! Mum say I pick it up funny by the inside not the outside.

Mum made us some treats and we been using them to teach Penny how to come to the whistle like I does. They is salmon burgers, cos Grandad has some salmon from a tin and mum used the left overs. Mum say you just squish up all the salmon then mix in about 50g of flour and some vegetable oil, or the oil from the salmon tin.

Step 1, mix altogether; step 2, roll into balls and press down; step 3, cook for about 15 mins.

Now the most important step…

They smell so yummy and are hard on the outside and soft in the middle. Mum hopes they will be good for Penny. Penny is on a diet so can’t have treats but mum hopes these be ok as they is healthy and fish is supposed to be good for older pups and peoples. Penny is all wet from a bath. I didn’t get one, Huruffruff!!

Ooh! I almost forgets! Stella gived me a lovely award.
Thanks so much Stella! I think most of my friends has been gived this award recently, I been seeing your names 😀 so I can’t think of my 8 right now. I will do it next post once I has had a better look through. If you is in my blogs I likes you can has it.

Hehe, it sure was fun opening all my pressies. I think Mum is getting a *little* bit better at making video’s. but not very much.

Me and Penny also got to eat the turkey neck. It was so yum!

I so glad to be reading about every one’s great crisp mas’s. I has learned that we doesn’t get another one for another whole year. 😦 That very sad.

Also, very excitingee I gots an award! Huruff! I loves getting awards. This one is from my special friends Josh and Jessie. Thanks so much!

“The award states that “This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships!”

In other clearer words, “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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

I think this is a very sweet good meaning award, so my 8 friends to pass it on to are… I tried to make sure none of you had it. Mum helped me do the looking so blame her if you already has it. BOL! Mum says I has chosen a lot of shelties. I is not a sheltieist, I promise.
