“Thinking Of You” Award

from my buddy Zac

from the great blog:

ZAC THE ALL BLACK

It’s always special to be thought of, isn’t it? I was super honored!

One of the requirements of this award is that I link to the doggy who gave it to me– DONE! Next: I am supposed to tell you about SEVEN things that I LOVE and think about daily!

1) Mom

This is a SUPER OLD photo before Mom lost some of her chubbiness, she is still chubby but she looks better than this! BOL!

2) Dad

3) Cody

4) My red, white and blue ball

5) SmartBones

6) DINNER

LAST but FAR from LEAST!!

MY BELOVED

7) EVA!!!!

My beautiful Sheltie Princess! Click the photo to visit her blog!

Next: I am supposed to pass this award on to SEVEN bloggers who I LOVE and think about all the time! There is a good chance some of you may have received this, if so…just ignore it, if not, ENJOY!!!!!!! And…if I didn’t list you it could be because:

a) I know you don’t like receiving awards

b) I  knew that you had  already received this award

c) I can’t possibly give it to everyone that I follow,  but I love ALL of YOU!

Now, on to the Seven:

Eva The Sheltie Princess

Torrey from Roxy The Traveling Dog

Fred and Gloria from Bassetmomma

Snoopy from Snoopy’s Dog Blog

Cinnamon and Bob from Cat From Hell

Leroy and Sherman from My Brown Newfies

Sue, from For Love Of  A Dog

And for everyone else, I LOVE and APPRECIATE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF  YOU and THINK ABOUT YOU every day!! I couldn’t have a blog without YOU!!

FROM DAKOTA AND MOM: Our hearts are breaking.  We feel awful. At the time we wrote this we didn’t realize that our beloved friend Zac was extremely ill.  We treated this post in a light-hearted way not knowing that Zac was reaching the end of his time here with all of us. We are shocked, devastated and frankly just too upset to write much now.  We weren’t blessed to know Zac as long as many of you have. In the short time we knew him he has touched our hearts and we grieve for his family. Please forgive us Zac and your family for doing a light-hearted post. We didn’t know. We love you…….for the rest of you, please click on Zac’s photo below and send your love and sympathy to his family.

Zac, we will miss you…

Thank you for bringing so much joy to all of our lives.

Run pain-free, you will always be with us

Barks and licks and love, 

Dakota and “Mom”

 

Thankful Thursday- We Received The Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

I am one excited Sheltie!!! The other day when Mom and I were reading blogs, we discovered that we were given an award!!!

The award we received is a super special one and we are THANKFUL to have received it!! It is the:

and it was given to us by our new buddies over at My Dog Sheba’s Life StoryMom and I get a kick  out of this blog because they have a  cat in their family named CODY too!! Imagine that!

The rules are simple in accepting this award. We are supposed to thank the person (or doggy) who gave it to us, THANK YOU My Dog Sheba’s Life Story  and link back to them. DONE!!! Then…we are supposed to tell you seven things about us! HERE WE GO!!

1) Like Sheba, I also LOVE to lick people’s feet. One might even call me obsessed. If you have a foot, preferably a freshly pawdicured and lotioned one, I am ALL OVER IT! Dad finds it charming, Mom? Not so much!

2) I do NOT like going for walks. I used to, back in my younger days. I wasn’t jaded then. After a territorial “Mother Goose” nearly bit my head off when I innocently was checking out her babies, and a garbage truck decided to make too much noise for my liking, that put a SEVERE damper on my walks.

3) I like being groomed. It’s impawtant for a manly Sheltie to keep his fur looking good at all times!! Got a brush? Come on over!

4)  Like Sheba, I also like love to be  around my humans. When my pack is away I’m a sad Sheltie for the day!

5) Also like Sheba, I LOVE my cat brother Cody!!!

6) I can spell!! It just dawned on me that I might have told you that before. If I did, just humor me and pretend that I didn’t. ‘k?

7) I like to scale our couch thinking I am a CAT! The first time I did this my Mom nearly died laughing. I came up behind her while she was watching TV and BOOM!!! I had crawled up the back of the couch and walked along the top!! I was pretending I was a CAT!!! It always looks so cool when Cody does it that I had to try it!

The other requirement of this award is to pass it on to 15 other bloggers who inspire us. This is a hard one. We are not going to do that because:

1) We don’t know if some pals have already received this award

2) Some blogs like to stay “award free”, while appreciating the awards, they don’t always have time to do a blog post about them.

3)  We follow way more than 15 blogs and don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by not passing this on to them!

Soooo, if you haven’t received this award and would like to claim it as your own, GO FOR IT! Just link back to us ok? We would one day  like to have more than 6 readers. BOL!!!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
