Treat yourself to a well-trained dog!

How Exciting–a break in the action

A few days ago I was shocked to find that fellow pet blogger Tail Waggin had passed along the “Stylish Blogger Award” it’s a nice bit of positive reinforcement for sure!

So I’m sort of “late” in the game and many of the blogs I follow already have this award but part of the rules is I have to nominate 15 blogs that I follow for this award.  I figure it’s like an “Oscar” and it can’t hurt to get more than one!  I also have to tell you 7 things about me (which will turn into 7 new things about the dogs LOL).

So, in no particular order… 15 blogs I think deserve this award and extra recognition

1.  Fearful Dogs

2.  According to Gus

3. Rescued Insanity

4.  It Just Keeps Getting Better

5.  Saving Starfish

6. Got Spots

7.  Pam’s Dog Academy

8.  Dogster Behavior & Training Blog

9.  All Things Dogs Blogs

10.  Pawsitive Transformations

11.  My Grass is Browner

12.  Donna and the Dogs

13. Little Dogs on Long Leashes

14.  Pet Central’s Pawsitive Dawgs Blogs (great links to other blogs)

15.  Ci Da (Good Dog)

Now… 7 things about the dogs… and me

 

1.  Rio likes to roll in stinky things… some of his favorites are coyote poop, cat vomit, and dead animals.

2. Rio sleeps (when he does) in some of the most entertaining positions… paw over his face, on his back spread eagle, half off the bed, curled in a tiny ball, head turned the wrong way .. etc

 

 

3. Shayne loves to destroy sticks…

4.  Shayne has a “funny foot” … we aren’t sure if it’s a genetic deformity or was caused by injury–the x-rays were inconclusive.  It will eventual cause her some problems but until then, she makes it work!

 

5. Rio has been known to climb trees to get squirrels… and will run from tree to tree when I say “Rio!  Where do squirrels live?”

6.  Shayne is essentially a garbage disposal.  She will eat anything and everything… only thing she’s ever turned her nose up to is a pickle.

 

7.  And last, but not least…. Rio and Shayne are raw fed.  Before raw feeding I had major issues touching raw meat… it really grossed me out… not so much anymore 🙂

 


Much thanks again to Tail Waggin for nominating me for this great award!

  1. Thanks for the nom. 🙂 I am also like you. I couldn’t even make a meatloaf when my mother was trying to teach me. I made her mush it all together. Lol Now it’s like meat? Psht, lets go take a bath in it… okay… that might be a bit much. But I’m sure you know what I mean. LOL

  2. Congratulations on your award! It is so nice to know people are reading what we post.

    Thanks for passing the award on to us. We are honored!

  3. Omgosh my blog is on there! *freaks out* I’ll have to work on it more lol… I like to read GotSpots and the Dogster blog too. Congrats on the award!

  4. Thank you so much for the award! And what awesome bloggers you have been kind enough to let me share the title with. Seriously, it’s a huge honour. I am the last person I ever thought would be called stylish. My eighty-year old cardigan would highly dispute that!

    And congratulations to you as well! I love reading your blog as you always have such interesting comments to make on training techniques. I’ve always wanted to get into disc dog but my throwing arm kind of sucks. Once again, my dog proves to be much more suited than I to sports. Anyway, I love reading about everything you are involved in. Rio is hilarious in that tree shot. I don’t know if Shayne and my dog would get along very well, they would be too busy fighting over that tiny grain of rice on the floor. 😛 Shiva will even eat pickles.

  5. Congrats! You totally deserved the award for your amazing blog!
