Seven Wierd Things About Us and Another Award

We got tagged by Abby, Rosie, Jackie, Gidget & Fritz to post 7 weird things about ourselves. Here are the rules:
Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a notification on their blog.

I'll go first this time~

1. I hate getting my tootsies wet when we're out on a walkie! I'll go around the puddle instead of through it!

2. I like to get up super early and I nudge mom at 4AM so she'll get up too! Sometimes she's agreeable and sometimes she'd rather sleep a wee bit longer!

3. I like to eat spinach but only the stem part. The leaf part is icky!

4. When mom gives me something that I've never had before, I take it ever so gingerly in my teefies - just in case she's trying to poison me!

Okay, Mitch - it's your turn~

1. I run and hide from very small children. Mom and dad think that something negative must have happened when I lived in the pet store at one time to make me react this way!

2. If I'm laying on my back and you scratch my chest, my back leg will move like I'm scratching myself! Mom thinks this is hysterical! Silly mom!

3. After I poo, I leap away from the smelly remains! If mom isn't holding tight to my leash, I'd be gone cause I move like the speed of lightning!

I guess that's our seven wierd things!

Now we'd like to tag our good friend, Putter, and our new friend, Finni, Scruffy, Lacie and Stan, Kirby and Amber Mae. Tell us 7 wierd things about yourselves!

We also want to thank Sitka and Tia, Maya and Kena, Molly and Taffy, Sweety, Gus and Louie and Harry and Cassidy for the "You Make my Day" award! Thank you so much! Reading all of your blogs really does make our day - along with everyone else's blog! We love you guys!

So until next time............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Oh mitch I am so sorry you don't like very small children. I love all kids. They can be fun. That is funny about the poo thing.

umekotyan said...

It prints at 4:00AM by seven strange things, and it is early.
Is it thought about the time difference, and Japan standard time?
Though it is a joke.
And, congratulations on winning a wonderful prize. :)

Oh Mitch, I'm not myself when around children, especially the noisy ones :) Maggie, I have not tried spinach stem. 4am?! That's really early.

Hi Maggie and Mitch....
I am sorry I have been so "absent" but my mamma is very preoccupied with some stuff right now
so I barely get to blog...I miss you very much, and I am upset with mamma for not getting out of her "preoccupation"..whatever this means...but I want you to know that I think about you all the time.
All my golden love

Sophie Brador said...

Ditto on the tootsies and the poo. I love that photo of Mitch with Bob le Bricoleur!


Jake of Florida said...

You said "If I'm laying on my back and you scratch my chest, my back leg will move like I'm scratching myself! Mom thinks this is hysterical! Silly mom!"

Well, I used to do that too, and Mom and Dogdad would just crack up. They haven't tried it lately and I wonder if I still do it!!!

Congratulations on your awards. But how do you get them to fit so nicely on the side? Our get all stretched out,as you can see on our blog.


Finni said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch,
Thanks for tagging me! I'll have to think about 7 weird things about me. Hmm... I do the 'aire' itchy thing too... and I used to have a Bob the builder too! But I like all kids.
Congratulations on the Award - I got one of them too. 2008 is a good year so far.
Finni xx

We don't like getting our feet wet either. Abby likes spinach, bu not Rosie. We both love watermelon though. Great list of weird things you guys.
Abby & Rosie

oh yeah, and the cats too

Cassidy said...

Me does that thingy with my leggies too Mitch. Even when me is standing up and you scratchies my tummy me picks up a back leg and twitches it!

Me has opposite problem with children. Even if me sees one in the distance me wants to go and say hello!

Stanley said...


Do you really think your mama would try to poison her sweet girl? You are a very particular girlpup, though, aren't you? I usually go charging through the puddles, and even when I try to be gentle taking something with my teefies, I end up taking part of the hand too.


My girl wishes I felt more like you do about kids. I want to rush over and put my snout right on their face. I've been known to knock down an unsuspecting kiddo or two. We're working on it. Maybe that will change for you if your hooman sissy has some pups of her own.

Thanks for sharing guys. If you don't know it by now, then I'll tell you again that YOU MAKE MY DAY too!

Goober love & smooches,

4xBs said...

Hi M&M, those are some pretty weird things, especially running away from your poo. we love poo, we love to sniff it and admire it. we are proud of it. it's not scary to run away from. silly boy. and funny you, Maggie, not eating spinach leaves. we love them. it's the bestest part. but lettuce is dumb. hee hee.

that was good stuff.


Lady Kaos said...

4 AM? that is very weird - unless you're getting up that early to go do something fun.

The Army of Four said...

Mmmmmm, I love baby spinach! Mmm!

Gus and Louie said...

Yepper that Louie gets Mom up at 4 AM sometimes also. Mom says she doesn't mind since it keeps him from doing his business on the floor. On the weekends we usually come downstairs and Mom sleeps on the couch with us so we don't wake Dad...

Ferndoggle said...

Mitch, I do that leg thing when Mom scratches me under the chin. She makes motorcycle sounds 'cause it looks like I'm starting up a bike...vroom, vroom, vrrrrroooooom!


Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Thanks forsharing all those weird facts about you two!
I like to wake my mom up at 4 am just to change places on the bed... and she is not happy about it!
I can imagine Mitch running away from his poo!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

I run away from my poo full speed too! Who wants to hang out around that stuff!!

Pacco de Mongrel said...

congratulation for ur awards..

btw... i will choose not to walk into the puddle too...coz i'm a clean mutt....hehe...

Comet and BLU said...

I hate getting my feet wet too, and will walk around puddles, wet grass, or mud rather than stepping in them. The only exception is that after a long walk, I love to come home and soak my feet in the water dish.

Patience-please said...

Sometimes one of us wakes our servant up at 3 or 4 am for a lovely pee. she is not overly amused. you have a good human there!

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Maggie,
I can't believe u wake up at 4am!! I am pretty certain my mama will 'murder' me if I woke her from her Beauty Sleep.. hehehe...

Hammer said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch
I love sleeping in bed beside my mum. I used to have to sleep outside in a kennel run before I came to mum. I'd stay in bed all day if mum did.
Congratulations on your award. We enjoy reading your blog too.
Love from Hammer

Reilly hates to get his feet wet too, he minces around and tries to avoid water at all costs. He is so funny when he does get his feet wet, he keeps trying to lick them dry!


Katie said...

We don't like spinach at all! YUCK. And, when we poo, we look at it like it is an alien from another planet. BOL!

Have a great weekend!

Martha said...
