One Last Award

I mentioned in my post More Awards to Share that I had one more award to share. This one is a little different than previous awards and it was given to us by the Island Traveler, we are so humbled and honored by this particular award and I think you will see why when you read about it here. It is the Hope Unites Globally Hug Award


One particular paragraph really jumped out at me

“These people use their available resources–a smile, a hug, a helping hand, a listening ear, a voice, time, money, possessions, education, personality, talent, websites and blogs—to make a positive impact on the world and make the world a better place to live.”

Since I have started bogging I have read some amazing blogs and although I have not met most of you in person I feel like I have through the stories you write. All of you open up your part of the world and share it with the rest of us and I just want everyone to know how blessed I am to have the opportunity to share with such a great community of friends. So I am passing this award on to everyone I am currently following.

Thank you so much for the lovely award and your wonderful comments, I enjoy your blog very much. So today I have finally gotten around to sharing it, the award is to recognize the work of fellow bloggers and to let them know that their work is appreciated and I do appreciate everyone’s blog. All of you put so much time and effort into everything you post.

New Friends

You may have noticed we have a new award on our side bar, The Collies Choice Award, we received this from our new friends at Collies Of The Meadow. This is a wonderful blog full of beautiful Collies! They have honored this blog with their award and we are very pleased to display it for everyone to see. I must tell you how we happened to find this gem of a blog, it was through Bassas Blog, another new friend with a wonderful blog and we found them through another gem of a blog jodistone who I found through a great blog, 2browndawgs. I guess what I am getting at is how the blogging community is such a great place to find new friends through each other. These awards are the perfect way of saying how much we appreciate each other. If you haven’t checked these blogs out yet you must, they are just wonderful and I enjoy visiting each one to see what they are up to.


The rules for this award can be found here, and now I would like to pass it on to a couple of very deserving blogs that I have already mentioned.

First one goes to one of the very first blogs we started following, 2 Brown Dawgs, this blog is all about the adventures and training of two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Thunder and Storm, don’t you just love their names. Very soon they are adding a third little Peaker to their family.

Second award goes to jodistone-Life with Sampson and Delilah….The 411, Jodi writes about her two labs. Sampson is the more sensible one and very much the gentleman and Delilah is the outgoing one. They are wonderful dogs and Jodi tells such great descriptive stories of the antics that Delilah pulls, you can just picture it.

Please stop by to see what they are up to and say Hi!
