It's the Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you soooo much, Darwin! That made me smile one of my very big Ammy smiles! We're all very honored that you would share this with us and Stormy said that a really nice way to say "thank you" would be for me to tell a joke and that might make you smile back ... and so before I get to all the rules and everything...
As you may know, we've had tons and tons and tons of rain lately. Just coming down like kitty-cats and puppies. Because of that, we've got a million of these popping up everywhere:
They remind me of tiny umbrellas ... and so I thought of a joke. Only who could I trick with my joke?
"Hmm... who could I tell my joke to?"
Then it hit me.
So we actually had some sunshine and went on an extra all-family walk to celebrate and I seized the moment.
"Hey you Sibes," I said. "Look! We've had so much rain lately, the bugs are putting up umbrellas!"
"Ammy, I don't see anything in here other than a bunch of mushroooo.... oh, AMMY!"
"Hee hee hee!"
I knew I'd get him with that one! Davy always loves my jokes! Darwin, I hope you liked that one!
So for the award, I'm supposed to thank the blogger who gave it to us -- that would be Darwin! Then I'm supposed to share seven things about me before passing it along to seven other bloggers.
1. I have very strong herding instincts; I'm the only one of the Sibes Mom has known who is like this. Did you know that once upon a time Siberian Huskies were used to herd reindeer? If Santa's guys ever get out of line, I'm available to round them up!2. I thrive on routine!3. I assume everyone I meet is a long-lost friend! (Also a very Siberian trait!)4. I'm a very good watch puppy. Oh, I don't bark, but I will race to the window and stare.5. I love being part of a pack! I take it upon myself to try to make everyone in it (bipeds and quadrupeds alike) happy!6. I really, really needed a good home when Stormy adopted me, but I'm the only member of the Ao4 who didn't do time in the local slammer. I mean "shelter".7. I don't like to drink if anyone's watching.
Now for the hard part! I'd like to share this with everyone, but Stormy said I should try really hard to follow the rules... and so here goes! If you already have it, please forgive me! Or if you'd rather not participate, I totally understand. OK!
and our new friends at Give a Dog a Bone
I'd really like to give this to everyone... but that's not in the rules but if you'd like it, please just take it because if anyone who gets upset then I'll get upset and won't be happy and then... (yes, Stormy? But I already listed seven things. Yes, I guess if there was an eighth item it could be that one of my nicknames is Chatty Cathy.... why? Oh. Oh, OK. Sorry.)
That's it for today! Thank you again to Darwin!
