A Blog Award !

My good friend Checkers recently sent me this award.
Thanks Checkers!

“This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it’s return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can’t wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome! Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a “Paw”some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award!”

Samson is a six month old, blind from birth, Chihuahua. I am constantly inspired by his determination, heart and courage.

Poppy is a 4 year old, fun loving Chihuahua who has overcome a serious health issue to live a full and exciting life. I love reading about her adventures.

Tibby is a "silly little dog" who I admire a great deal. She was rescued from a crowded shelter and now has a dream life with her Owners. Her, "Pet's Of The Week" prompted me to start my "Sunday's Featured Doggies".

Tank is an "intelligent and opinionated" Lhasa Apso who also eats worms. How smart is that?!? His insigtful "commentary" is worth exactly two cents. Woof.

I just found out that mom is going to a flea market today. She is going there to look for "garden treasures". Whatever. I asked her, "If it's a "flea" market why aren't they selling fleas??" She said she doesn't know why it's called that.

So that means me and Banjo will be left home alone again this Saturday. She says she will be back in plenty of time for us to go for a walk or to play out in the newly mowed yard. Last year I got to go with her to this flea market. It was kinda rainy and since I was small, mom carried me around in her zipped up jacket with just my head sticking out. All these strange humans kept shoving their hands in my face. They wanted to pet the "cute little dog". I didn't care for that at all! So I think maybe I'm glad mom isn't taking me and Banjo this time. You all have a great day! Me and Banjo will... despite the fact mom is leaving us to go look for junk garden treasures.

Hi Bijou,

Congrats on your kool award! It sounds like a good thing your mom is leaving you home this'll get some extra nap time in!

Sniffs and licks,


Checkers said...

you deserve the award - I'm flying back from a whirlwind week-end - and am a bit groggy but I asked that question once and mom said she thinks it's called a flea market because it originated in Europe, probably France ...there were the outdoor markets full of used furniture, clothing, household items and such and then there were the fleas (in the stuff) so it eventually was dubbed a "flea market". remember she is blonde, old and southern so that maybe a total crock!
Just hope your mom doesn't bring home anything with fleas in it!

Tank said...

Uh, thanks for the award Bijou... I think. I read the glowing accolades you gave your other recipients, and then, lo and behold, I see MY name. What wonderful things will Bijou have to say about me, I wonder to myself. "Tank... eats worms. How smart is that?!?" And "His 'commentary' is worth exactly two cents." This sounds very sarcastic Bijou. I thought we were friends. You can't hear me, but I'm crying now. Pink Baby is crying too. She says "with friends like that..." well, you know the rest. I told PB that maybe you're just upset because you didn't get to go to the flea market. She says that's not a good excuse and thinks you should say you're sorry. I think you should say that I inspire you as much as the other dogs you mentioned. Is that asking too much? Very upset, Tank and PB

Tank said...

One more thing... "intelligent and opinionated" is a direct quote from the Blog Catalog people. They came up with that after they read my blog. I didn't just make it up!!!!!!! Still upset, Tank and PB

I'm sorry my post offended you. I thought you of all doggies, would understand a twisted sense of humor. I do find your blog inspiring, entertaining and funny or I wouldn't have included you. I value your friendship and did not mean any harm. I was just taunting you a bit. I thought we had that kind of relationship. Sorry, my mistake. Please accept my apology.

I do hope your mom khame home without fleas and with stuff fur woo two!


Tank said...

Aww, I'm sorry too Bijou. I know you couldn't be mean if you tried. I think I'm just sleep deprived what with PB being here all week. Checkers gave me some good advice awhile ago - said to put PB in a box and tell her it's nap time. It seemed to work (please don't tell Kylie.) Hope we're still friends and I do appreciate the award. Tail between my legs, Tank
