Video Viernes and a New Award!

Hey everyone! We haven't done Video Viernes in a while, so I thought I'd share this one. Waldo has taken to "talking" to me (aka whining) while I'm checking blogs.

We'd like to say "TANK WOO" to those of you who have passed awards on to us recently!! We have recognized you on the sidebar of our blog. If you see that we have missed one of your awards, please bring it to our attention! I tried to keep up with everything when we were on vacation, but I was remiss in thanking some puppies. Thanks to Dozer, Samantha, and Paco and Milo!!

Speaking of awards, we thought we would make our very first award!! Presenting...

This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it's return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can't wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!
Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a "Paw"some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award!

After a "verree long deeliburayshun," we have decided to pass this award to....

...NALA AND AMBER!! We are always very excited when we see "NW Ridgeback" pop up in our Google Reader! Nala and her mommee share some wonderful adventures together. We really wish that we lived closer, because we think we would all get along together so well! Nala and her mommee do a lot of travelling--and her mommee is a great documentarian, who always has beautiful pictures of beautiful places!

...AMBER-MAE!! Wow, Amber-Mae has had an amazing few weeks! If you don't know her, you can go to her blog and check out her beautiful self--and her 7 newborn puppies! Not only did her family do a great job in documenting their birth, but they also had a touching tribute to the 3 puppies that didn't make it. Amber is also a show dog, and she has great grooming and showing tips on her blog!

...MELISSA AND EMMITT!! Wow, are these two cool friends! Melissa is an amazing artist, who creates paintings, drawings, stuffed animals and dog beds--and Emmitt the Pug is her muse! Melissa is always creating new and interesting dog items for her Etsy shop, and she doesn't just have Pug items, either! Her blog (and her Etsy shop) are TOTALLY worth your time to check out--especially check out her "blind drawings"! Pawsome!

...and TRAVIS!! We are new friends of Travis, but WHEW! He sure does keep his blog hoppin'! There are always amazing contests and challenges for other bloggers to enter. Not only that, but he also hosts Supa Saturday and has an alter-ego (Bark Kent) who does interviews with famous blogging doggies! We don't know how Travis keeps up with everything, but we sure think his blog is Pawsome!

Picking only 4 blogs was SOOOO hard. Seriously, when we went through our Google Reader, we had reasons to pick almost everyone!! We REALLY hope that you will share our award with others, because so many dog bloggers out there deserve this one! We love you!!

Ahhhh Waldo and Gus and Allison, we are so honored and we are blushing a bit right now after reading all the nice things you said about us. :O We wish we lived closer too because we just know we would be great friends. Maybe one day we will get to visit each other. :) THANK YOU so much and we think the award is super cool!!! We will be passing it on soon.

Amber and Nala said...

Oh and one more thing Waldo....I whine too at Mom but she says my whining is a little more high-pitched and non-stop. I am relentless when it comes to getting what I want. :)

"Driving mama crazy?" I think not. You poor dude, must be driving YOU crazy to have her ignore your requests. I bet she knows what you want and is too lazy to comply. Isn't that always the way.

Gus is into snooter cam big time.

Lovin your new award.

Waldo, you and Daisy could have a whining contest. Why don't you go and play bitey face with Gus, it would be more fun.

Pee Ess: I meant to tell you that I squeak and whine all the time - to go out, to come in, to be let out of the car at my fave parks; to get mom off the computer when it's my dinner name it - all to good effect!! Heh heh! Squeak!

PAW! Waldo, I share quite a few words with mom too, when she is getting the rope to go outside. So much so, that I now have to sit in my safe place quietly before she will put it on my head. PAW DUDE! MAX
