Awards-One Lovely Blog, Very Inspiring Blogger, and Sunshine Award

Well, I find myself with more unexpected awards thanks to Emily,  The Lanther and Dianda! Not only have I been nominated for three awards this time, but by three different bloggers! Which, to me, is pretty fascinating since I didn’t expect anyone to read this blog let alone actually enjoy it. But, I only write about what my pets do. There wouldn’t be a blog without those monsters.

So, here are the rules for One Lovely Blog and Very Inspiring Blogger:

(1) Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.

(2) Share 7 things about yourself.

(3) Nominate 15 bloggers you admire.

(4) Leave a comment on each letting them know they have been nominated.

7 things about me: I am reading The Hobbit for the umpteenth time. I went grocery shopping today and said something disgusting far too loudly, to the amusement of my husband. I saved my sunflower sprouts from imminent death by hail while accidentally filling my shoes with water. I am playing Red Dead Redemption. My little sister (9 years old) called me today “just because she loves me”. I often wonder when I will start to feel like a “grown-up”. And, I wish that tickets across Canada were not so bloody expensive.

Here are my nominees, in no specific order:

The Lonely Dogs


Two Troublesome K9s

Kitten’s Thunder Girl


A Teddy Bear’s Journey

simplify by Jane…and… Boucle the Poodle

Patti Soldavini



the howler and me


Ok, I know there are only twelve, but some of the awards call for 10 and others 15, so I compromised. Also, I wanted to keep a theme with my nominees. These bloggers all write about their pets, and it warms my heart to know that for all of the horrible stories we read/watch/hear, there are people out there like these nominees who treat their pets like family. They treat them well, and love them enough to write about them in their blogs. Sometimes it saddens me that there are so many stories out there about the maltreatment of our furry friends and it’s good to know that there are people out there who take their pets (and even other peoples pets) seriously. Good on all of you.

The instructions for the Sunshine award are:

  • Link the award to the person who gave it to you.
  • Answer the questions that come with it.
  • Pass it along to 10 people and let them know they have received it.

The questions:

Favorite number: 7
Favorite Non-alcoholic drink: Iced Tea
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook
My Passion: Writing
Favorite pattern: My cat’s stripes
Favorite Day of the Week: Friday
Favorite Flower: Roses

So, thank you again to Emily, The Lanther, and Dianda for nominating me. You all have lovely blogs, and if you didn’t have the award already I would have nominated you. And a shout out to Bosun Dog who I also would have nominated, but someone already had that great idea!

On an end note, I think this will be the last awards post I do for a little while as they are very time consuming. Not that I don’t appreciate them, but my life is about to get fairly hectic and I am going to have trouble enough keeping up with my regular posts. Thank you from myself, Mylo, Toady, and Odin.

    ps. I also love reading the Hobbit… you have inspired me to pull my tattered old copy off the shelf once again!

    • You are so welcome! I look forward to your posts every time! And my copy of The Hobbit is also tattered and warn, but I think it adds to the experience! Can’t wait for the movie!

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination! It truely means a lot! And I completely agree with your comment on society’s preference for negative news about animals, which makes me even more thankful for bloggers like yourself who write about what makes animals so wonderful and why they are essential to our lives.
