Thinking Excellence

Sassy, we apologize for forgetting to publish your Excellence award yesterday. We really are grateful and thank you for it.

According to Sassy, the gang at JFF (and the other recipients) have wonderful outstanding styles and a fantastic ability to keep us thinking, amused and entertained.

We now need to send this to ten Blogger writers of outstanding style and ability.

Hmmmm. After serious consideration, we have decided to give it to Daisy the curly cat, Poppy Q, The Daily Echo, Lacy Lulu Hudson, the Army of Four, Dragonheart & Merlin, Karen Jo of Kitty Limericks, Momo & Pinot, Girl Girl, and Agatha & Archie. Each of these adds a special touch to the blogging community.

And we are all honored to receive the Thinking Blogger award from Willow. She said we're a great group. (We wonder if she meant a large group?) We've given this out before and we forget to whom, so we'll wait. But it's nice to know we make some of you think.

Now, if we can just get Jan thinking again. She's been sick this week and she's kept us busy reminding her to keep to the normal routine - feed and water us, exercise no matter what the weather because exercise is good for her - and besides, we canines don't have litterboxes, etc.

Today is Hammer's & Beau's 7th birthday. We hope you will stop by and say hello. If you remember, Beau was stolen and his mum has been searching for him for nearly five years. He and Hammer were littermates. We all joined Stormy's A04 Troopers to help bring Beau home through blogging and spreading the word. (Remember the post of us in our helmets?)

Charlotte was missing for a couple of days, but she has returned home. We are all relieved.

Bruno has a new collar and is recuperating nicely. No more middle of the night doggy door escapades for him until the collar comes off.

  21. Dear Jan and everyone
    Thank you very much for your happy barkday wishes and for your post about Beau and my barkdays.
    Thank you also for signing my guestbook.
    Congrats on your award too.
    Mum is going to add a Missing Pets webpage to Beau's website to try to help in some small way. She was going to do this when she designed Beau's website but no one was interested. She's going to do it now to try to help Haggis and Blue as well as Holly and Fonzie who are still missing in Australia.
    Love from Hammer


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
