A Meme and Other Things

(Picture taken by Kathleen Coy)

Last Friday my bully furiend Princess tagged me to do the meme, Seven Reasons I'm Awesome. So here's my list of things that make me pawsome.

  1. I always use the litter box, unlike my little brother who more and more frequently is pooping on the laundry room floor, making mom not very happy.
  2. I always know when mom needs extra smoochies and snuggles.
  3. I let mom dress me in clothes in the winter not just to keep me warm, but because she enjoys it.
  4. I keep all the squirrels and rabbits out of mom's flower beds.
  5. I encourage mom to get more exercise by asking her to play fetch or go on walks.
  6. I am not a picky eater. I almost always eat whatever is put before me.
  7. I am a good girl and make mom proud.


On Monday, my Doxie furiend, Twix, asked me to play the Name Game. For this game you are suppose to tell about your name and how you got it. You can also include any nicknames you might have.

My mom wanted a unique name for me. She spent two weeks searching for the perfect one. She looked all over the internet for words that described this cute little pup she had brought into her home. She finally chose my name, which is French and means;
  • something delicate, elegant or highly prized
  • a small jewel or trinket
Bijou is pronounced; "be-zhu". When mom first told people what my name was they looked at her funny and replied, "You named your dog, 'Beats You' ??" BOL Silly hoomans.

I only have two nicknames, Bij and Baby Girl.


Last Thursday my little Chihuahua furiend, Coco, tagged me for the You're A Gem award.

"The only rule for this award is that to accept it, display it proudly on your blog for all the bloggy world to see your greatness and/or pass it on to other bloggers as you see fit..."

I think all my furiends are gems and are deserving of this award. So please , everydoggy reading this, make me very happy. Grab the award and post it proudly on your blog!

Hi Bijou! I really enjoyed your 7 reasons why you are awesome. Your name Bijou fits you so perfect! Especially because you allow your mom to dress you in clothes - I don't like it when mom tries to put me in clothes. I know it makes her sad, I just don't like it; I do really try hard, I will wear the outfit for a tiny bit (teeny bit actually), and I am a very finicky eater. I refuse to eat everything in front of me (unless of course it's hooman food). Keep up the great work and continue to be an awesome example of us poopers and unconditional love!

Kudos to Bijou!!!!! XOXO ^5

Hugs & smooches XOXO

You use a litter box? Wow, Bijou, I'm impressed!
Those were great things to learn about you. And your name fits you to a T (or, should that be a B?!)
Your pal,

I knew how to pronounce your name because my assistant took many years of french (oddly enough, she never really learned to speak it!) We didn't know what it meant though, so we learned something. It does fit you and you are awesome!

Cocorue said...

your name sounds so beautiful when i say it gently and i go around perfecting my french ( not that i know french, get????).....and it suits you....

Furry khool things woo pawed!

Khongrats on your award!

I really enjoyed your name explanation!

Yes, it is WOO!


Cocorue said...

hey Bijou, actually it's dad who said "fat bum"....

hiney is the decent version but they said it endearingly as i was too skinny and they wanted me healthier

now they are happy i've filled up so "fat hiney" is good
