Thankful Monday

Awards...awards! I am so honored to receive this adorable Doggie Bloggie award. Thank you to 24 Paws of Love for passing it my way! :)

The instructions say to post 10 things about myself, but instead, I want to mention 10 amazing dog and pet blogs that have helped me, made me laugh, made me care, and inspired me to try to be a better doggie blogger.

Okay, I might have gone on beyond my goal of 10 blogs. I read a lot of blogs and every day one or another or several speak to me. I had to stop somewhere though. So if I missed your name on this list, please know that I appreciate your work and share your love of our furry friends. And if you are on the list, thank you thank you thank you for all you do!

Thank you:

1. 24 Paws of Love- not only for giving me this award, but because I'm learning a lot about Siberian Huskies and the rest of the pack, and what lovable dogs they are.

11. Doggie Stylish - for sharing fun and quirky dog news.

12. I Still want More Puppies - for making me want more puppies too.

13. Critter Alley- for sharing a love of writing about animals.

14. Oh My Dog - for fun and helpful posts.

15. Fido and Wino - for ROAR Squad (and for making me a member!)

21. Pip Gets Back in the Game- for making me go "awwww!"

Post the award, share 10 things about yourself, pass the award along to 10 others, or 15, or 2, or 20... or just revel in the glory. It's your award.. do what you want!
