Roses and Why We Love Blogging

Tail wags, all!  It's me - Stormy!  As Dave mentioned the other day, we have recently been honored with a couple awards.  The first one was from our sweet hound friends the Dughallmor Beagles - Gabbi, Rosie, Alfie and Snoop.  They presented us with this lovely bouquet of roses for hosting their bunny (Rambo) on our blog during their bunny hunt!

Thank you, Golden Samantha!  Thank you, Dughallmor Beagles!

Thank you, dear friends!  It was our pleasure to be a part of the fun!

We also received this award from Zimmie's bestest friend, Huffle Mawson:

Thanks, Huffle!

It's the Why I Love Blogging award.  Here are the rules:
*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.
*Tag and distribute the Award to as many people as you like.
*Don’t forget to notify the Award receivers and put their links in your post.
Zim was going to respond to this one, but he can't stop staring at the coffee cup in the graphic.  Ha roo roo roo!  We love blogging for a myriad of reasons, but primarily because of all the friendships we've made - we all come together, without regard to anything other than being supportive, friendly, and caring - and have a whole lot of fun along the way!  We love sharing our adventures with you and reading about yours. The boys (Dave and Zim) love sharing their photo shoots with you - so do I, but in a totally different way.  Ammy... not so much.  We've been at this for almost three years now, and our list could go on and on.  But it's got to be the friendships.  You ALL mean so much to us!

*This news just in!  Our very lovely friend Stella has also just presented us with the Why We Love Blogging award!  Thank you, Stella!  This makes the honor doubly special!!!

We'd like to hear from all of you!  Why do you love blogging?  Consider yourselves tagged and awarded, if you'd like to play along!

We need to respond to a tag from Jackal and Storm, too.  We'll hit that tomorrow.  Right now, I need to get some PT in.

Would you put Animal Planet or something good on the TV, please?

Tail wags,

    Awards are such fun, dontcha think?

    Congrats on the awards! Well deserved.

    Btw my J met Huffle's parents when she was in Oz!

    My J is still recovering from her trip to Down Under, so we are (apparently) taking it easy with the blogging and comments etc.

    But you are our oldest blog friends, had to have a "sticky beak" on your blog today to see what youse guys are up to!

    My J says Sticky Beak is an Aussie saying, and she lurves barking it about the blogworld!
