Award Central

Happy Saturday Everyone!!

I've been super lucky recently and noticed that I have the bestest bloggie friends that a pup could ever want!! :-D Yeah, I'm talking about you!!! 

Yesterday, two pawesome pals nominated me for awards!

First up, the ever gorgeous and fantastically-dominating Nola granted me the REALITY blog award.

The Rules are as follows:
  1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back to them.
  3. Answer the 5 simple questions. (see below)
  4. Nominate up to 20 blogs for the award and notify each of them. (see below)
  5. Display the award on your blog somewhere.

The Questions:
  • If you could change one thing, what would it be?
    • The Big Picture: That everyone would value their pups, kittens, hamsters, much as our fantastic Mom's and Dad's here in Blogville do! 
    • More Personal: That I could go everywhere with my Domeek, no questions asked...the stores, food places, her work all the time, everywhere!! :-) 
  • If you could repeat an age, what would it be?
    • Well, I'm only one year I don't have a lot to go by, buuuuut, I do miss my younger months, when there wasn't as much pressure to behave and do well in class...those were the days my friends! ;-)
  • What is one thing that really scares you?
    • Domeek not coming home!! :-( 
  • What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you'll be able to complete it?
    • There's tons of things that I haven't completed...again, I say, I'm only 1! Let's see, I want to travel all over the place (yes, I'll complete that) and I want to take more classes like nosework (yes, I'll complete that one too)!
  • If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
    • Pft...I'm ecstatic being Freckles, why should I be someone else?! You humans are weird...I'm pretty sure that most saved pups are happy being who and where we are! :-D

The Nominees (Go say "Hi" if you haven't already):

Thanks again Nola!! :-D

My second award comes from my bestest werewolf friend, Cotton!! If you don't know Cotton, well...what rock have you been hiding underneath?! ;-)

The Rules are as follows:
  1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
  2. Share five things about yourself
  3. Answer five questions presented by Cotton 
  4. Ask five new questions to your nominated bloggers
  5. Reveal your top five picks. {with less than 200 readers} and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog or a tweet!
  6. Copy and paste the award on your blog
  7. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite up-and-coming bloggers and keep it going!

5 Things About Moi:
  1. Oh my dog, most of my freckles are disappearing...oh no!! Does that mean I'm disappearing too?!
  2. I'm seriously the most picky eater that has ever lived! 
  3. I've just discovered how to chew open tennis balls and shred them too! WooHoo!
  4. I don't like getting icky paws! :-/ Eww!
  5. I'm super barrel chested...not fat!!!
5 Questions By Cotton:
  • Recommend a book that you or your staff have read that you feel my huMum would like.
    • Oh Domeek just finished reading Always Looking Up by Michael J. Fox. Now, she's not usually a happy-go-lucky, feel good kind of a person, but this book really helps to put your life in perspective and realize that it's not as bad as it looks, that you can always make things better! :-D We'd definitely recommend it!!
  • Show us a picture of your favorite flower, preferably from your garden but understand if you have to use Google.
    • Muahaha, our garden?! That would follow the presumption that Domeek doesn't have a black thumb! 
    The ever beautiful Magnolia!
  • How do you express your love for those close to you.
    • Hehe, I go crazy and whine and growl all around them! I'm a weirdo!
  • Name an all time favorite film of you or your staff.
    • Hm...I just finished watching one of the Harry Potter films and I surprised myself by liking it, usually I get scared pretty easily, but I didn't mind this one (ooo, it's the one where Sirius dies)!
  • Do you find all this just a bit tedious?
    • Hehe, well, if I found it really tedious, I wouldn't have answered the questions! ;-) You might be lucky though, I just finished eating dinner...but I haven't fallen asleep yet! 

My Five Questions:
  1. What is the bestest thing that has ever happened to you?
  2. Are you a Valley, Mountain, Country, Urban, or Sea kind of a pup/human?
  3. If you could sit down to dinner with 3 other individuals, who would they be?!
  4. What's your favorite treat?
  5. What's your favorite quote?

The Nominees (Again, go say "Hi" if you don't know them):

Oh my goodness, thank you again Cotton!! :-D

You see, that's 12 pawesome bloggers that you should know! Have a great day everyone!!


  1. Congrats to you and thanks for passing the award on to us. We appreciate being chosen. Mom really needs to sort out how to handle these awards. We are working with her on it. We read your answers and one of the answers made us gasp! Yes, gasp! Tearing apart those tennis balls is very dangerous! Do you know Bert and his Miss Vickie? Well, it was not even a year ago he had to have emergency surgery for swallowing part of a tennis ball. They cut his stomach in 3 places to get it all removed! Many dogs have done this. So please STOP! Tell Domeek to only get you those extra hard balls or only play with tennis balls when she is watching. You have a fence now so you CANNOT get into trouble with a tennis ball!!

    Because mom is a nerd, we are going to answer your questions right here.

    1 What is the bestest thing that has ever happened to you? Coming to live with our pawrents and me and Stanley staying together!

    2. Are you a Valley, Mountain, Country, Urban, or Sea kind of a pup/human? We are in the burbs at the foot of the mountain. We like to hike in the mountains but mom hates snakes and "creatures".

    3. If you could sit down to dinner with 3 other individuals, who would they be?! Jesus, Mom's mom who died 10 years ago, Martin Luther King Jr.

    4. What's your favorite treat? Beef liver

    5. What's your favorite quote? Never, never, never give up.

    Keep Calm & Bark On,

    Murphy & Stanley

    1. :-) Thanks for the concern guys! I know! Boo! Domeek's already taken away all the balls that I know how to destroy (the cheap balls)! Sniff! I didn't know that about Bert, but I certainly don't want surgery!!

      Great answers! :-D

  2. Oh Goose CONGRATS dude!! Those are great awardies, and I LOVED readin' your answers!! I, too, (since I was a wee one) LOVE tearin' up tennis balls!! I de-fluff them first, then I finish em off! (Murphy's right though, Ma doesn't give em' to me anymore, because I got just too good at it. I can destroy one in under a minute) Ma did find a that 'Kong Air Dog' balls look like real tennis balls, but they have a different center, like a real ball inside, and they squeak!! BONUS!)
    Anyhu, Thanks so much for the awardie!! I will be sure Ma posts about it this week!!

  3. So glad you liked the awardie :D
    You totally deserves them.
    Your answers were really interesting and I can't wait to see what the others' answer!!

  4. You are going to have to start a new blog just for all your awards - way to go little guy - well deserved

  5. Goose brother. Thank yo for the award. I will SERIOUSLY try to get MOM to do it. She is so very busy right now it is not funny. I had to beg and beg and beg her to go look at our friends blogs. This whole week she has gotten 4 hours of sleep or less each day. (My sleep level has reminded the same). Thank you again brother. I really appreciate it.

  6. Congratulations and Thank you Goose! So very sweet of you. I need to have an "award ceremony" soon because I'm running a little behind on mine.. oops! Made me laugh when you said your mom has a "black thumb"! lol

  7. Congratulations, Freckles. We're sure you aren't disappearing even if your freckles might be. We love hearing all about you.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
