We Rock!

Ha roo, everypup! It's me - Storms! A big thank roo to our gal-pals Sitka and Sasha for nominating Amber and me as Rockin' Girl Bloggers! Ha roooooo!

This is totally cool, and it was quite thoughtful of Sitka and Sasha to give us the nod! We're supposed to nominate seven other rockin' girl bloggers - so here goes. This isn't easy, because all of our blogging buddies ROCK! We nominate Pippin & Tansy, Frankie & Maddie, China & Madie, Mati, Jazz & Dixie, Summer (of Team Husky), and Dakota!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, Mom took this picture of Amber and me, then played around with it a bit.

Me and Ammy

Not bad, is it? Don't I look proud? I had just heard about our Rockin' Girl Blogger award.

As a side note, Mom had to take about 152 pictures of us before she even came up with this one. We were ... a tad bit less than cooperative. Just because. In the vast majority of the pix, if Amber looked good, I didn't - and vice versa. It kept the cookies flowing, though, until Mom finally gave up. We scored about 15 cookies throughout the process, for those who might be wondering! Ha rooooo!

Here's a pretty one of Amber:

Doesn't she look lovely? I was looking at a bug on the front porch, so Mom cropped me out.

Here I am, posing nicely on the bed:

Amber wouldn't look at the camera, so she got cropped out. You can still see her hip and tail. The lighting is off, but Mom really liked my "look" here. That's my "take as many pictures as you like; Amber still won't look at you - keep the cookies coming, please" pose. It was quite enjoyable!

That's all for today. Many thanks to Sitka and Sasha. And to ALL the female bloggers out there - and the guys, too - you ROCK! In fact, we'd like to present this to our brothers, Zim and Dave.


Tail wags,

  17. Hey Ao4! Rock on! Great way to earn cookies! We have chocolate miny and basil growing on our hillside. We like the strawberries better!

  18. Hi AO4,
    We are not sure yet how much the surgery will cost. Based on another puppy's leg surgery (that was not as complicated as Xia's will be) we are estimating about $3,000, but we should know more after her appt. with the specialist tomorrow. I will update my blog once we know, so check back.

    Thanks for anything you can do! You can also help by forwarding the info about her story to other dog lovers!

    Thanks so much!
