Today we are joining Heart Like A Dog and their co-host 2 Brown Dawgs for Follow-up Friday.

The blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.

Jodi says: Follow-Up Friday, because some posts just need a little update.

Thanks Jodi for letting us Follow-up with you today!


Continuing where we started yesterday by posting our thank you to a fellow blogger.

We received the Blog Of The Year 2012 award and this wonderful award was bestowed upon us by Dogdaz way back in well…I am ashamed to admit November. Dogdaz we are so humbled and honored for the nomination of this award and want you to know how much we appreciate it and your wonderful blog!

It is a bit different than other awards because you get to collect a star each time you are nominated. How cool is that!

Here are the rules:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.

Here are our picks for this award in no particular order and we want you to know how much we enjoyed reading each and every one of your blogs last year.

This ‘N That Thursday ~ Where Do I Begin…

I just wanted to add another comment to my canvas portrait, I will be using this in a shadowbox that will contain Cheyenne’s ribbon and certificate. I don’t think I could have asked for a better portrait to be included and I will cherish it always, thank you Jodi!



I wanted to give a shout out to Pet Bloggers United. They featured us on their blog February 23 and since then we have had many new visitors, so thank you Oskar and Pam. We proudly display their badge on our side bar!

So that’s it for us, what do you all have planned for the weekend?

  1. Thanks for joining us on FUF Misty!! And congratulations to you for your award and thanks for sharing it with us!!

    I think using that picture as a shadow box is going to be stunning! What a great idea.

    Have a great weekend!!


    1. Trying hard to get back in the swing of things with blogging. I could so relate to your post about no motivation!

      I will post it when I get it all done, I know someone who has a person who makes shadowboxes so I will ordering one of his, they are very nice and I will get to do the staining and the background myself.


  2. Hi there! We found you through today’s blog hop and are happy to meet you 🙂 Congrats on your award and winning that gorgeous print…That is surely something to cherish


  3. Thank you for the shout out and the star back. I now can complete my badge. We all need to take a blogbreak sometimes and do the actual ‘living’ thing. Petblogging means never having to say your are sorry…. or was that Love?


We would love to hear from you!!
