We have recently been given some awards, by three of our new friends.  So we wanted to thank them, and share the awards.  First, we were given the “Addictive Blog Award” by our friends the Collies of the Meadow and their dad, Chuck.  We were given a second “Addictive Blog Award” from Mollie and Alfie and their mom.  So please stop by and visit these wonderful blogs, we love reading their posts and the collies and Mollie and Alfie.  I think both of these blogs are “addicting!”


The rules for the Addictive blog Award are as follows:
I am to thank the giver, link to them, talk about  why I blog and why I started… post the award, and then nominate 10 others.

So why I blog…I actually started “blogging” years ago, over on Livejournal.  Most of the journals/blogs on Livejournal aren’t public, you have to be a member of Livejournal and then be friended by each journal in order to read the individual’s posts.  So I decided to start a blog, to share stories of my collies with other dog lovers.

The collies and I discussed it. And we decided to nominate the following blogs for the “Addictive Blog Award:”

A Day In The Life Of Goose
Team Unruly
Declan's Dog Blog
The Thundering Herd
Sugar The Golden Retriever Dog Blog
24 Paws of Love
How Sam Sees It
Two Collies and a Mutt

They are all great blogs, that we are following because we are addicted to them!

We also received two more awards, from our friend Freckles.  His Blog is called, “A Day in the life of a Goose, ” and it is sometimes funny and often heartwarming.  So we are giving him our own special award, at the bottom of this post!

The awards Freckles gave us are “One Lovely Blog Award” and a “Beautiful Blogger” award.  He gave us these awards when we were feeling sad about the death of a special collie in our lives.  And we want to thank him and his mom for sending these awards our way, to brighten our day.  If you haven’t checked out his blog, you should!  Here is a link to get you there:

There are rules and regulations for the awards, so I’m listing them here:

The requirements for the One Lovely Blog Award are:

Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
Share 7 things about yourself.

Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know.

7 Things About Me/and the collies:
~I sing special songs to my collies, that I make up myself, and they love it!
~Each of my dogs has 4 or 5 nicknames, and they answer to them!
~I talk to my collies as if they were people, and as a result they all understand a lot of words.
~The collies dislike the sound of my hair dryer, and they all come running each morning to bark and jump up and down when I turn it on.  (Which results in 5 minutes of noisy chaos!)
~My daughter and I play hide and seek with the collies, and they love this game!
~We have a huge collections of old Lassie movies, old collie stories and old collie figurines.
~I cannot figure out how to post the awards we are receiving to my blog, anyone have any advice?

The requirements for the Beautiful Blogger Award are:

To copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post. 
Thank the person who nominated you and create a link back to their blog.

We are combing the nominations, as we think the seven blogs listed below deserve both awards:
Collies of the Meadow
Molly and Alfie
Sugar The Golden Retriever Dog Blog
24 Paws of Love
How Sam Sees It
Two Collies and a Mutt

We are following all of these blogs because we think they are both beautiful and lovely!
