Thanks for the Awards!

Through the Blog Hop, I have met some great new friends and cool bloggies and new friends have checked out my blog. Special thanks to Romance Puppy and Macy's Puppy Tales for awarding me with this Versatile Blogger Award!

There are rules for accepting this award. (1) Thank the blogger who gave you this award. In this case two bloggers - lovely Sallie from Romance Puppy.

And the cute Golden puppy Macy from Macy's Puppy Tales:

2) I have to share 7 things about me. Okay here goes:

  • I am a big kisser. I lick your face, your arm, your leg, and not just sweet little kisses but giant lick the skin off your face smooches. When I send you Yoda Smooches, you need to understand what it really means.
  • I live with my mom and dad in a house that has a pond in my backyard and I go swimming a lot.
  • I am a stick-aholic. I see you with a stick and I have to take it. If you throw it I will chase it but I won't bring it back. I usually chew and destroy the sticks.
  • I have four kitty sibs but they do not like me much. I try to play with them but they are not interesting. So maybe playing to me (65 pounds of Yoda chasing poor little 12 pound kitty) is a little scary to them.
  • I have an older brother dog and my mom's mom's dog that live in the house but downstairs. By brother Goliath has to live downstairs because he has bad arthritis. Neither Goliath nor Roscoe (would he be my uncle?) like to play with me because I am old and bigger than they are.
  • I love chewing on bones. My favorite are piggy hooves. I also like the treats in the Big Red Bag by Merrick from Best Bully Sticks. Merrick makes the piggy hooves too and I get them from Best Bully Sticks too.
  • I also love toys. I am real hard on my plush toys (I eat them) and do tend to destroy most of my toys. But, I have some real good ones and my favorite store is Nip and Bones. My pal Baby Patches is the Chief Kit of that operation.
Now Rule 3 is to list fifteen bloggies I have recently discovered that I think are fantastic. Fortunately the Blog Hop has brought 15 new bloggies to me to bestow this award to. If I give you this award and you have just won it and done your post, just thank me. No one should have to keep finding 15 new bloggies to honor! (This also makes it easier for me so I don't have to do due diligence to find bloggies that haven't already gotten the award). AND, if they hadn't just given me the award, both Romance Puppy and Macy's Puppy Tales would be on this list for sure!

My blog roll is getting really long (110). Mom said it took two hours to read a week's worth of blogs and check out some new ones on the hop. There were 104 bloggies on the Hop this week! And we have not checked them all out yet. If you are one of my regular readers, please check the ones listed above out. It's worth it!

Well, Yoda Smooches to you all (and maybe you all have a better idea of what that means now)!

Congratulations on the award and thanks for the honor of passing it to us! That is quite a distinguished list and we are proud to share with them.

For now, we are exhausted from a weekend of camping, so don't be surprised if you hear snoring from our direction. I can guarantee that six Sibes are happily snoring already.
