Awards and the Lists

We were awarded the "You're a Blessing" award by Jake and Fergie! Thank you so very much! Both of you are very, very special to us.

"This award is to be bestoed upon five individuals with the hopes that they will cut and paste the badge above for their blogs, then honor five more and so on and so on... "

It's so tough choosing just 5 because you're all so very special to us!

1. To Sunshade - if it wasn't for Sunshade and her mom, we wouldn't be blogging!

2. We can't leave her brother Jaffa out! He's a blessing too, even though his sissy thinks he's Stinky!

3. To our friends Penny, Poppy and Patches! They're having a rough time of it right now taking care of their dad and we understand just how very stressful that can be!

4. To our good buddy, Norwood! We love visiting his blog! He always makes us smile. His mom is such a whiz with the computer, unlike ours!

5. To our friend, Blue! We love her blog and we love playing true colors Thursday each week!

Each and every one of you is a blessing to us!

We also got this "Best Blog" award from our Poodles buddies, Mollie Jo and Bobo!
We're supposed to pass it on to 14 others! We're breaking the rules here because we think that all of our friends have the best blogs! Choosing is much too hard so anyone reading our blog, please consider yourself to have the Best Blog!

You have all probably heard already that our mom is heading to Florida. She'll be leaving on Tuesday and she'll be gone for a whole week! She's been making lots of lists for dad so he'll know just how to feed us and how much to feed us and how often to feed us - you get the picture!
Dad doesn't pay as much attention to detail as mom does! But in order for mom to have a good time and not worry too much, the lists are necessary!
Dad has already told us that one night we will be dining at Glenwood and then have ice cream afterwards at Wentworth's! Let's see if mom remembered to write "purple spoon" on this list!

We know we'll survive without you mom but we're sure going to miss you!

Love,
Maggie and Mitch

You are such great bloggers Maggie and Mitch. Congratulations on your awards. Moms are good at making lists but Dads aren't always so good at following them!!! As long as you get ice cream, all will be well and your mom will be home soon.

Your friend,
Niamh

Mack said...

But just think of all the treatsies you will get when mom gets back! Congrats on those super cool awards!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Congrats on your awards!!

If Mom is gone for a week, does that mean that we won't be seeing you for a week. We don't know if we can stand going for a week - we'll go into M/M withdrawal.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

You guys can do it without the purple spoon if he forgets...I have faith.

Ina in Alaska said...

When our mom goes on a trip she feels most comfortable with us being cared for by our rescuer so.... she takes us back to the lady who rescued us! We have so much fun there and we always tell the other dogs waiting that there is hope for them to find a good home too!!!

When our Mom goes away, we get lots of treats cause Dad doesn't pay attention to the lists and shares his snacks. Have fun.

Congratulations on the Awards. You have just reminded us that we forgot to post about ours - oh sometimes we are very bad bloggers indeed!!!
We hope your mom has a great time - don't worry about your dad - they never bother with lists and stuff.
We reckon it will be fun - you might even get more treats!!!
love and kisses

High Paws on the awards - and that is some list your mom is making. But you know while moms are away - dads and pups get to play ......mom won't know if you have a little extra pizza or ice-cream or other yummy treats BOL

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh dear. Lists. We think we'd better get Moma to start making some. Now. We've heard conversation that we won't be going to Florida for Christmas. Sob. Instead. Sob. We'll be going. Sob. To our Rescue Angel's house. sniffle. We love her. But it just won't be the same.

Give us strength. And confidence. Or you could give us your dad.

Love
Jake and Fergi (sniffle)

Sierra Rose said...

Great awards pals!
Lists in sleeves even! My mom does the list in big type, as every detail is important...even when she is just working in the evening....don't want dad to forget those little important things.
Have a nice time in Florida, and you pals have fun with dad!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Sunshade said...

Maggie my friend,

You, your most AWESOMEST mom and your stinky are most deserving of this award!!

I can't believe you passed the award to us... We feel so unqualified for the award since we've been away for so looooong... I the SuperDALE is blushing so hard I almost have to hide all day before the redness subsides (and you know that's VERY un-usual for the SuperDALE...right?). But still, I want to THANK YOUUUUUUUUUU my gurrrrlfriend!

ps. I know it was Mitch's idea to award STINKY... you my bestest Aire-friend would never do that to me, I just know it!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Hey M and M
Thanks so much for the award. I am very honored especially coming from you both. I was wondering if it came with a slice of pizza too... just kidding.

Momless for a week? Wow.. you can totally take advantage of dad now. Go for it.

PS Glad you enjoy my humor- sometimes it's a bit much

Mango said...

A whole week??? I bet you have ice cream and pizza every night and stay up late watching action movies.

Can I come over?

Slobbers,
Mango

Maggie and Mitch, here's a little secret... We humans are addicted to our lists. It makes us feel we have some control over life! But you doggies know it's really more important to just relax and let life flow past.
