Hi Gang! Just stopping in to say Happy Sunday from ME to YOU!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
Aww, thanks! Same to you! 🙂
Thank you! They are awfully cute.
I love the pictures of your animals.We have two dogs,Millie is our 10 year old Golden Retriever and Oceana a beagle-terrier who is 9.Thank you for this wonderful site and keep up the great work!
Thank you kindly! I’m glad that you enjoy it! I bet your pups are the best of friends, eh?
Hello- it’s very nice to meet you. Thank you for following my humble blog! It will be fun to see what you and your diverse family are up to.
To you as well. 🙂 I look forward to your posts.
Those dogs are all so adorable!
Thank you! 🙂 Also, thanks for stopping by!
It’s nice to meet you! Seems like we have a bit in common as far as how we like to live our lives – hermit-ish with lots of furballs around. Looking forward to more of your posts and pics.
To you as well! Thanks for taking a look.
Glad you liked the blog posting about pet friendly places to stay. Hope it was helpful for you and your readers. Today’s post is about Kimpton Hotels (http://wp.me/p2D3SQ-4D), another great place to stay with your pet and/or your kids. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again. 🙂
Yes, it was an interesting post! Thanks!
So pretty much this blog should be entitled “adorableness”, if those three pictures are anything to go by. 😉
Haha, aww thanks!
Why is Toady a “Mutt,’ but Odin is a ‘Cat?’ Shouldn’t Toady be a ‘Dog’ then? They are very cute!
He is a mutt because we are unsure of his origins, but you are right, he is a dog. Any ideas on his breed? 🙂
He looks like a Finnish Border Collie to me – but I am usually wrong. That $69 DNA test tells you more. I believe that ‘mutts’ are at least 10 possible breds all at once: 2 sires (2), each with 2 sires (that’s 6), who had 2 sires (that’s 10). – What bred is popular in Canada that he looks like?
Whenever we think we have found his breed, his size causes doubts. He is 120 pounds. We have thought about the DNA test, but they’re so vague. When we adopted him they said Husky X, but he’s just so big! And spotty! So far, we haven’t found a Canadian breed that fits him.
Nice Pack! beautiful dogs…and well the kitty too 🙂
Your blog is ON FIRE, so I nominated you for The Blog on Fire Award! Please click here for more info: http://iadoptedadog.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/self-reflection-the-blog-on-fire-award/. Love, Taylor and Jessica
Thank you! 🙂 I haven’t got the time to do the awards posts right now, but I have created a page in order to thank everyone that has nominated us. You can find it here: https://fostrickson.wordpress.com/thanks-to/. I hope that it sufficiently shows my gratitude and appreciation!
Congratulations! I’ve passed the So Sweet Blog award to you, because I love your blog.
Paste this link back somewhere in your post
and nominate some blogs you love, with links to the sites.
copy the uRL from the award image in my side bar and put it in yours!
I’m very much obliged! As I haven’t got time to do awards posts right now, I have created this page: https://fostrickson.wordpress.com/thanks-to/. I hope that it conveys my thanks and appreciation satisfactorily! I have enjoyed following your posts so far, and look forward to many more.
Ah…what a great idea. This world of blog awards is rather more complex that I first though 🙂 Being somewhat of a newbie its great to see how others respond to these…lots of food for thought…and yes having done one now it seems like a lot of unecessary work! So I love your idea.
I agree, there is much more to blogging than I ever thought. I know a few others who do something similar with awards. I can barely find the time to post once a week regularly, I just haven’t got the time to do extra posts. Thanks for understanding! 🙂
I can tell by the Marking Territory post that we have much in common! Thanks for visiting Gardens for Goldens. I will happily follow along with you as well!
Thank you kindly! I look forward to reading your future posts and hope that you enjoy mine! 🙂
Check that post: http://stanzebla.wordpress.com/2012/11/15/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/ Don’t worry, if you got no time or already got six stars or something. It’s rather meant as a “thank you” from my part.
I wanted to let you know I nominated you for a “Liebster Blog Award”. It’s mainly an opportunity to network with other bloggers that may not have seen your blog and put forward blogs that you like and find new blogs to enjoy. It does take some time and I completely understand if you decide you don’t want to do this. But I enjoy your blog and think others will, too. If you decide to do this, here is a shortlink http://shoefulofdrool.com/. I look forward to seeing you!
Thanks! I feel honored and very much appreciate it! I don’t have the time to complete reward requirements, but I have created a page to thank everyone who has nominated me: https://fostrickson.wordpress.com/thanks-to/. I’ve included you on the page and hope that it conveys my appreciation. I’m glad that you enjoy my posts and hope that you continue to do so! Congrats on the award, you deserve it. 🙂
You’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award. Check out my website for instructions:)
My humble thanks! I haven’t had much time to do awards for the last few months, but I did create a page to thank those who have nominated me. If you want to check it out, you can now find yourself on there: https://fostrickson.wordpress.com/thanks-to/. Again, thank you very much for the award!
