I'm In The Mood

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me - Amber! Zimmie received this really cool award from our very sweet friend (and his bestest friend!) Huffle Mawson; it's the Mood Ring Award.

Thanks, Huffle!!

Isn't it pretty? She gave it to Zimmie because blue reminds her of him. He used to wear a blue collar - and that's still his signature color! We're now supposed to present this to four friends who remind us of the four colors in the mood ring: blue, pink, green and orange. Stormy thought we should each take one of the colors and go from there!

Stormy chose pink and said pink reminds her of our dear little friend Star. Not only does she look really pretty in her pink outfits and accessories, but the cross her mom made that we won was surrounded in pretty pink paper.

Zimmie chose blue and said blue reminds him of Sagira and her beautiful, icy blue eyes!

Davy chose green and wanted to present it to the Dughallmor Beagles! It is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and Rosie, Gabbi, Snoop and Alfie are helping to get the word out by sporting a green ribbon on their blog and are encouraging everyone to be on a tick preventative!
Those are all great choices, aren't they!?! And that leaves orange for me. I had to do a little study of the color orange first; I'm not up on my colors like Dave, Mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind.

"This is orange? Ohhh..."

"I don't really care for orange foods."

I don't. Carrots, cantaloupe, mangoes, peaches ... I just don't care for those things. And they're all orange.

But then Davy told me that so are sweet potatoes and pumpkin - and I DO like those!

"Really? You aren't trying to kid a kidder, are you?"

He said they're more of a burnt orange (I think that's professional Guide Dog for the Color Blind talk!), but that they're still technically orange. So then I thought maybe I could think up something that's burnt orange and maybe that would remind me of someone.

"Burnt orange... burnt orange..."

And Davy said to please hurry up and not eat my carrot so he could have it and then go out and play football. And it hit me!

The Cleveland Browns' color is sort of burnt orange! And our friend Tanner, despite living with a HUGE Pittsburgh Steelers fan, loves the Browns!!! Hee hee hee! I know this will make Joe Stains really happy. Hee hee hee!

A big thank you to Huffle Mawson from Zim and all of us! And again, we pass this lovely award to Star, Sagira, the Dughallmor Beagles, and Tanner! (With apologies to Joey Stains.)



  1. Congrats on your well deserved award!

  2. Thats a fun award!
    Darwin doesnt like carrots either, but any fruit (mango, oranges, peaches, etc) she'll inhale!

  3. Your Mom is color blind, too?!? So is my Mom; I just thought she was a freak of nature. Maybe Dave could come visit sometime, like when Mom is getting ready to clothes shopping! Heehee!

    If you came to Texas, you'd see lots and lots of burnt orange!!! Hook 'em, Horns!!
    Half of my hubby's t-shirts are that color! (Our sunsets are also a beautiful burnt orange.)

  6. You Mom is color blind? We would have never guessed! She's so great with all that picture stuff we would have never guessed. I don't like carrots either. I chew them into tiny pieces and then spit them out onto Mom's shaggy rug so it's hard for her to pick up. woo!
