Being Honest

Woodstock gave us this very cool award! Thank you so much, Woodstock! This is our first award from a very handsome bear such as yourself!

And we got this same award given to us by our new friends Baby Rocket and Hootie!

If you haven't met them yet - go say hi! Baby Rocket is an Airedale and Hootie is a Welsh Terrier!This *** Award is apparently, bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog's content is, in the giver's opinion Brilliant.

The rules:"When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real.

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on! "

Mitch and I totally deserve this award! We pride ourselves on being just as honest as we can be! I will list 5 honest (random) things about myself and then Mitch will list 5 honest (random) things about himself!

1. I don't like to have the fur inbetween my pawpads cut! Mom is forever feeling for mats and it drives me NUTS!

2. I love to wear my winter coat when we go for walkies when it's cold out! Cold usually means nineteen degrees or less!

3. It mades me sad when dad takes Mitch out to the workshop all the time and leaves me inside with mom! I want to go out to the workshop too once in awhile!

4. I like riding in the front seat of the car better than riding in the back seat with Mitch!
5. I wish we could hike up Sleeping Giant mountain once a week! It sure is fun!

Your turn, Mitch!

1. I don't like to wear coats like Maggie does! If I even suspect mom is thinking about putting one on me, I run!

2. I don't like to ride in the front seat of the car! I much prefer the back seat!

3. I love to antagonize Maggie by biting her when her head is turned and she's not paying attention! It really makes her mad!
4. It makes me sad when we return from our morning walkie and I go with dad into his workshop and Maggie goes into the house with mom and she gets a cookie and I don't! This is just not fair!

5. When mom grooms me, I don't like her to go anywhere near where my *ahem* dingles used to be! I sit down and give mom a really hard time!

Now to choose 7 blogs - this is always the hard part!

1. Joey and Tanner - We just love their blog! We never leave there without a daily chuckle!

2. Emmitt and Melissa - Emmitt is the cutest Puggie ever and his mom, Melissa is a brilliant artist!

3. Mango and Dexter - Mango is one of the most brilliant meditating doggies we know. He and Dexter are a hoot together and of course they are brothers to Hector, who our sissy, Autumn is just NUTS about!

4. Noah and his sissies - these guys live in beautiful Australia and we think that anyone who owns 4 Airedales deserves this award!

5. Patience and her Whippets - we just love Patience! She is a brilliant writer - the best! Patience lives in KY and they got hit with that NASTY ice storm that has devastated their community!

6. Scruffy, Lacie and Stan - BRILLIANT! Nuff said!

7. Stanislaw and Big Pupi - these guys know anything and everything about food and vitamins and keeping doggies healthy. We are also very proud of Big Pupi's therapy dog skills! These guys are brilliant!

We wish we could go on and on because we have so many BRILLIANT friends!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Maggie & Mitch,

Congratulations on the pawsome award! I love the facts about you. Maggie, recently, I've become a big fan of riding in the front seat, but mom always makes me ride in back. Grrrr!

the many Bs said...

that was fun to read about how great your blog is and all of that honest stuff about you kiddos. it works out pretty well that Maggie likes the front seat and Mitch likes the back seat in the car. all of us try to get in the front seat at the same time and that doesn't work out so well for mom!

Maggsie & MitchMan!

Congratulations on the award. You guys really ARE brilliant!

I especially love the 10 random facts about yourselves. Maggsie, I totally identify with the no cutting the hair between my paw pads thing. I HATE that. And, Mitch, I do the same thing you do when my girl tries to shave down my bootie. I just sit down & won't move.

You guys crack us up!

Goober love & smooches,

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

furry good facts. Congratulations on your cool award!

Kelly said...

I loved those random facts about you guys! I like to be in the front seat too, Maggie. But I have to side with Mitch when it comes to the clothes... no thank you!

Have a great Monday, cuties!

Mason Dixie said...

How cool of a tag. I do not like the hair around my paw pads cut either. Seriously I have it there for a reason whether I know why or not does not mean a darn thing. =)

Jans Funny Farm said...

Congratulations on the award. You two deserve it.

It's interesting to learn more about you. You two are so different.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

It seems like you 2 are just the opposite. You know opposites attract...

Hi Maggie and Mitch! Congrats on your nifty award! I like the picture of you in the front seat, Maggie. Maybe your mom can drive you to the workshop.


CoCo said...

Likes and list would be way too long to fit on this list.


Moco said...

Good facts about both of you.

Dewey Dewster said...

Eeeeewwwww maybe we're related cause we don't like the pad hair cut on us either even if Gram uses the special scissors she bought just ta do 'em...'n we don't like coats either...hey we have a ton of hair that should keep us plenty warm...'n if Gram would stop pullin' it out we would never be cold at all....

Lois Lane/Laney said...

When Mom puts a coat on me, I tend to try to "shake it off" along our walks. The feel of it bugs me. But soon, I forget it's there, and resume my exploring.

Amber-Mae said...

I LOVE riding on the front seat too. Infact, today I just did! After my Mommy learned how to drive, we get double dose of car rides now. And we're allowed to sit in the front if we want to. FUN!!!

Rudy said...

Well you're certainly very deserving of that award! I love to go check it out whenever Mom lets me on the 'puter.


Stanislaw said...

Hey dude and dudette! We're totally pumped about the award. Thank you SOOOO much!! We're having some crazy technical difficulties with the blogging machine and mom has an appointment with a genius at a bar tomorrow. What? She said she's going to Apple, Mitch... maybe you can go too? Anyway, until she figures it out there's no photos to post and no making of cheese money since mom's computer is where that all comes from. Arg! We'll post all about it once The Old Man (AKA the computer) is feeling up for it again. In the mean time, mom will be here hyperventilating...

Maybe you and Mitch should trade spots for a day. Maggie goes to the workshop and Mitch goes in the house? Thanks for tagging us, I sure can't wait for Tanner's answers...
