Who We Are

Thank You, Friends!

Stormy here today - tail wags to all! Have you seen the "Blogging Friends Forever" card yet? We are most honored to have just received it!

Our favorite pirate-pup Cap'n Maverick presented it to Zim, our new friends Kayla and Maebe gave it to Dave ("cuz he's a cutie!" -- really girls, DAVE?!?), and I am most honored to have been presented the BFF card by Star and Jack-a-roo (because I'm the Supreme Commander of the Ao4)!

I feel so honored!

The rules are to give this award to five friends (and only 5) who are dedicated followers of your blog; one has to be a new blogger in a different part of the world. Please link back to whoever gave you this award.

OK! The first recipient was chosen by all of us - our sister Amber! We're a pack and we stick together; we are happy to share with each other!

We also decided together to present the card to Oorvi! She writes a very clever blog and lives in a totally different part of the world - India!

Zim had a hard time deciding, but after a great deal of thought chose to honor his favorite Beagle duo, Jazz and Dixie of Japan. They are totally adorable and post some of the sweetest Beagle pix imaginable. They also share wonderful photos of Japan with us, showing the beauty of their country and helping educate us about the different festivals and history!

Everyone's favorite Guide Dog for the Color Blind - Dave - chose a biped! He's really been enjoying Dana's blog, over at Old Red Barn Company. Not only does he love the way she puts colors together, but he's been grooving out to the music she has on the blog. Lately, it's been Paolo Nutini with "New Shoes". (Dave still would like some Sibe-sized Crocs, so his feety-feet don't get wet in the grass.) Dave usually goes for different music, but he's starting to branch out. Maybe Dana's blog will inspire new color combos for him, too!

I would like to pass the award on to my very dear friends in New Zealand - Team Husky! Prince, Summer and their new pack-mate Sesuk. Sesuk just joined them last month, so she is new to blogging!

Congratulations to all of our blogging friends - and many thanks for Maverick, Kayla & Maebe, and Star & Jack!

  8. I gave this to Ammy too. And I do love that photo of you Stormy, was there something up there we needed to look at?

  9. We meant to leave a comment hours and hours ago but Brice was hogging the computer and staring at the picture of Ammy. I can;t wait until he grows up and gets out of this lovestruck teenager phase.

    We'll have to go visit your friends. I wonder if Jazz and Dixie know River?
