Thanks, Sage, for the Doggie Bloggie Award.

Doggie Bloggie Award Sage, over at The [Mis]Adventures of Sage, has given Something Wagging This Way Comes a Doggie Bloggie Award. As a treat, it’s almost as yummy as liver! Thank you.

Of course, with gifts come responsibilities. And receiving a Doggie Bloggie has a few   rules:

1) Thank the person who gave the award and link to them.

2) Name 10 things about yourself–creative, weird, enticing, whatever.

3) Award 15 doggie bloggers–whoever you think deserves this regardless of whether     they are old or new.

4) Share the love with the doggie bloggers you award by commenting on their site.

5) Finally, have a great time! After all, doggies are nothing if not fun!

So here are my 10 things. Or 5 things about me and 5 things about Honey. After all, she does write the captions:

About Me:

  1. I don’t have a tv or a cell phone but I love my computer.
  2. I love the smell of sleeping dogs.
  3. My strangest job task ever was to order cadavers for medical students learning about trauma surgery.
  4. Every time I pass a dog I sing out, “puppy!”
  5. I love the water and regularly swim and kayak. That’s why I adopted a Golden Retriever–to enjoy the water with me.

About  Honey:

  1. Honey does not like the water and doesn’t swim.
  2. She will, however, go for a kayak ride.
  3. Honey’s sister Goldie is a move star. She has a small part in a movie called The Red Lunchbox, coming this fall.
  4. She loves to sit on laps and cuddle.
  5. Honey likes to play tug even more than she likes to fetch.

And here are 15 dog blogs I enjoy reading on a regular basis (in no particular order):

  1. Aw, I really love the scent of my dogs, too. :)

    Thank you for such a nice surprise this evening! So glad you’re enjoying little Roo’s journey.

  2. Thank you so much for the award! Sometimes I’m surprised people actually read my blog. It could have something to do with the fact my husband never reads it, and when I occasionally share it with him, well… I shared tomorrow’s post with my husband tonight… I thought it was funny and was hoping for a compliment. I said “what do you think?” He said “it’s long.” So much for the compliment. So this award comes at a perfect time. :-)

    By the way, I love that Honey doesn’t like the water. I decided I wanted to do the dog sport of dock diving with one of my dogs… only to find out none of them like the water either. Oh well!

    • Yeah, husbands! If all we wanted from our spouses was unconditional support, we’d marry women, I guess.

      I haven’t given up on Honey. I hope she’ll connect with her inner water dog next summer.

      Anyway, glad you appreciate the award. I really enjoy your writing–it’s very funny! And poignant too.

  3. Thank you so so much — it’s been a real treat getting to know you on my blog and yours recently. At the risk of getting more VBBK (Very Bad Blog Karma) I’m attaching a link to a recent post that carried out the dictates of this one — after a year and a half:

    So I will pass along your wonderful award, I promise… just not yet!

    • I’m definitely feeling you on the busy thing– After spending nearly 2 hours creating my post, linking to 15 blogs, and sending comments, I asked my husband if the awardees would feel I was punishing them instead of awarding them.

      From Dog Foster Mom’s response above, I think it’s worth the risk.

      And good dog karma counterbalances bad blog karma every time. So give Frankie a good belly rub and I think you’ll be just fine.

  4. Oh my! the ironies in life. you love the water…your retreive, not so much! sigh. i guess we can’t always “pick” who we love, huh? it just happens.

    nice award. thank you for awarding it. i will try to return the award but it may be a while! I still have one from Honey big dog to do! i’m bad at keeping up with them.

    cheers and wags to Honey!

  5. We say the same thing ‘puppy!’

    Thanks for the award. Will get to work on it :)
