Awards…awards! I am so honored to receive this adorable Doggie Bloggie award. Thank you to 24 Paws of Love for passing it my way! 🙂

The instructions say to post 10 things about myself, but instead, I want to mention 10 amazing dog and pet blogs that have helped me, made me laugh, made me care, and inspired me to try to be a better doggie blogger.

Okay, I might have gone on beyond my goal of 10 blogs. I read a lot of blogs and every day one or another or several speak to me. I had to stop somewhere though. So if I missed your name on this list, please know that I appreciate your work and share your love of our furry friends. And if you are on the list, thank you thank you thank you for all you do!
