Monday again!

First of all big congrats to Andy Murray for winning Wimbledon!! As you can  imagine this has been great news for us in the UK:-) So last night we had a little BBQ to celebrate that and the warm weather. It was crazy hot and I didn’t get as many sneaky treats as I was hoping:-(

Mummy has been going overdrive trying to keep me cool, but instead of buying me a stylish cooling jacket at the dog show yesterday, she decided that a wet towel would do just as well. Hmmm not quite the same is it?

2013-07-07 15.25.37Luckily daddy is home with me this week so he has the job of keeping my paddling pool and water bowl fully topped up. And if he fancies giving me some frozen treats, well I won’t say no:-)

In the meantime, thank you to Sammy for giving me this cool award!

50000-award

All I have to do is thank the blogger who nominated me Thank you Sammy! And tell what my six favorite things are then pass it on to whoever I want to!

My six favorite things are:

  1. Food, in any shape or form. As long as its edible I’ll eat it:-)
  2. Bellyrubs – can get enough!
  3. Wrestling with daddy:-)
  4. Playing with friends
  5. Did I mention food??
  6. Blogging!

Who will I pass this on to?

I’d like to give this award to both The Chronicle of Woos and also Hutch A Good Life. Both have lost a special member of their families recently so I’d like to give this to them with a big hug xxx


Thankful Thursday

Sooo much to be thankful for today! Hope I don’t forget anyone!

First of all, thank you to Savannah and her mummy Linda.

DSC_0643She sent me this pretty doggie stone that looks just like me! It was for helping with the ‘save Leo’ campaign. I love it, thank you:-)

Next, thank you to My Three Moggies. I submitted a cake for Henry’s birthday cake contest and they’ve sent me this cool treat ball.

DSC_0646I wanted to play with it while it was still in the packaging BOL. I’m going to have loads of fun with it!

And lastly, I’m sure I was given a few awards recently but I’m afraid I’ve forgotten who they were from, so thank you whoever you were. My new Mally friend Ku has given me the Versatile Blogger award. Thank you Ku 🙂

I have had this award before so I won’t repeat the’ 7 things about me’ list. But I would like to forward it on to a few people, who hopefully haven’t had it before. If you have I hope you will accept it again anyway:-)

And lastly I also got this month’s Fings for Fido box.

DSC_0647In it was a ball that moves on its own. I wasn’t very impressed tbh. Apologies for mummy’s cackle in the following vid, she and daddy seemed to think my reaction to the ball was hilarious! As you can see, I didn’t.

Phew, I think that’s everything!


Overdue thanks

Thank you to everyone who helped with the ‘save Leo’ campaign. Whether you re-blogged, posted, tweeted, facebooked, donated money, items, bought raffle tickets or placed bids in the auction. It has all helped and made it a huge success. And a massive thank you to Mollie who organised it all. Not only have we helped to save the life of this poor kitty but in true Mollie-style we’ve had loads of fun doing it too!

More on that later.

  1. thank the friend who passed the award to you – thank you Sammy!

  3. Last but not least, you pass the award to more blog buddies (at least one but no limit on number).

Why I love thee

I love my mummy and Daddy cos they love me and take care of me. Daddy is silly and makes me laugh. He wrestles with me on the floor and blows raspberries on my belly. Mummy gets up with me in the middle of the night and makes sure I get an early morning walk before she goes to work, no matter the weather. Between them they do a pretty good job – although there’s always room for more noms:-)

I’d like to pass this on to:

Gizmo

Easy

Stuart

Award Tuesday

I thought that by now you’re probably bored of me waffling on about the wonderfulness of snow, so instead I thought I’d catch up on some awards.

Speedy and Kevin have both given me the lovely Sisterhood award – thank you both:-)

sisterhood-of-world-bloggers-award

Princess Zena has very kindly awarded me the Liebster Blog Award – thank you Princess!

liebster

Apparently with this award there are a few different things to do:

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 Zena
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
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!

I have to share five things about myself. But what don’t you already know?

  1. When I need to go out in the middle of the night, I only wake mummy up never daddy
  2. I am an excellent kitchen helper and am good at cleaning up spills etc
  3. I like to lick body and face creams when someone (usually mummy) has used them, Sudocream (which she uses for her eczema) is my favourite:-)
  4. I find it difficult to settle when people move around alot and have to follow them to find out what they’re doing
  5. When I’m tired my eyes get puffy

Now I have to answer the five questions with Zena proposed:

1. What is the naughtiest thing you have ever been caught doing?
Stealing mummy and daddy’s dinner!! But daddy left it on the kitchen counter so I think it was fair game.

2. What is the one thing you would change about yourself?
I’d have springs for legs so I can  jump up to the top of the freezer where my treat box lives:-)

3. What would your ideal holiday look like?
Miles and miles of snow:-)

4. What is the hardest thing you have ever had to do?
Walk along the main road when I was little. I was pretty scared by the traffic.

5. If you could go back and change anything in the past what would it be?
I’d prevent me from ever having to have baths:-)

My questions for my nominees are:

  1. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
  2. Where is your favorite place to be besides home?
  3. What do you think your perfect job would be?
  4. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
  5. What is the worst gift you ever received?

I’ve lost track of who’s got this, so I’m going to give this to:

Shiva and Jaya

Oakley Bear

Ruby

Kevin

Little Miss Jackie

I’d also like to give all my friends the special SNOWBALL FIGHT award I’ve made to celebrate how ridiculously happy I’ve been the last few days:-)

Back to reality

Well looks the promise of our ‘big freeze’ were hugely over-rated and our snow has all gone sadly:-(

As I don’t have any snowdog photos to share, I thought I’d take the opportunity to pass on this lovely award that both those cute little piggies at Hutch a Good Life, Cocco the mini pig AND the very regal princess Zena have given me. Thank you both so much!

2012 was a great year for me: I came to live with mummy and daddy, I started blogging and made loads of friends on and off-line. I hope 2013 is just as good, if not better!

I need to do some housekeeping before 2013 fully gets into gear, so first of all would like to thank to Dogdaz, for the Dogdaz Pick of the Litter Award! Thank you!

I also need to thank Kirby for turning me into a cool cartoon character:

Inca

As you know the other day I had my first birthday and as well as lots of lovely presents and messages, I also got an email from my twin sister Inca! Although I came from a big litter, Inca and I looked the most alike and we were inseparable as pups. But Inca ended up not finding a new home and stayed with our birth mother.

Daddy regrets not bringing Inca home with us, but mummy says she couldn’t have coped with two of us loved Inca as much as me and it wouldn’t have been fair. I guess I can understand that, although there are times I would really love to have a playmate.

I haven’t seen Inca since I left with mummy and daddy, but she sent me this photo of herself chilling on the sofa, looks just like me right?

Except of course she still has a nice fluffy belly:-(

Thank you to Jet for the lovely birthday card, I’m going to take your advice and milk my birthday celebrations as long as possible:-)

Also thank you to Stanzes Blahbla, The Lonely Dogs,  Princess Zena,  DogDaz, Easy, Speedy and Mollie for helping me max out my stars!
