Blogging Friends Forever & Needs

Our dear friend, Blue has honored us with the Blogging Friends Forever Gold Card!

Blue wrote - "rarely does a post of mine pass by un-commented on. They are a lovely family, who love ice-cream & pizza, everyone shares & even 'Wheelie' Autumn gets her say".

Thank you so much, Blue! We are blown away by your generosity!

Now, the rules re passing it on are as follows:-

1. Only five people allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

This is very tough for us because we have so many wonderful friends!

Poppy, Penny and Patches are almost always first to comment on our postings! We love reading about their Airedale antics and they're mom is a wheelie maker, which we think is super special!

Mango and Dexter make us laugh out loud every single time we visit their blog. Don't tell anyone because it's a very guarded secret around her but we think Autumn has a MAJOR crush on Hector!

Joey and Tanner never fail to comment on our blog and 99% of the time, their comments have us in stitches!

Our hammie friend Girl girl is always writes the sweetest, most polite comments on our blog! She is most deserving!

Our new friend is Scottie, the Nottie Schnauzer from Malaysia. He visits our blog every single time we post without fail!

Blue also tagged us to play "Needs"!
All you have to do is Google your first name with the word "needs" behind it and post the results.

Maggie Needs An Alibi - WHAT??? I didn't realize that I had committed any crime?!

Maggie, needs your attention - And if I don't get it ASAP, I'll bark my head off until I do!

Maggie needs a special container - Yup, this would mean a larger one for even more ice cream!

Now you, Mitch!

Mitch needs help - Yes, I do and it would be help getting those yummy immature apples out of the apple tree so I can eat them ALL one by one!

Mitch needs to be watched closely - I love picking up nuts and apples that fall off trees on my morning walkies and if I'm not watched closely I'll put 2 or 3 nuts in my mouth at once! It's gotten me in trouble more than once!

Mitch needs to find some new blogs to read - Count me in!

We're not tagging anyone to play Needs but it's lots of fun so if you want to play, please do!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Joe Stains said...

Thank you for the GREAT award. I never knew Maggie was a criminal either!! I don't know how Autumn couldn't have a crush on Hector, that dude is seriously talented!!!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Good evening m & m.
Congratulations on the gold card.
Wonderful time seeing beginning of the Olympics.
The helianthus and the hydrangea are beautiful.
It is regrettable that the hydrangea flower ended in Japan.
A wonderful weekend at the time of the Olympics:)
