Well, I'm in trouble. It isn't Elka's fault.
You see, waaaaay back on January 9, Pennypup from Dobermann Daze was so kind as to give us the Liebster Blog award. I'm wondering if she's regretting it at this point! I don't recall what it was I was doing in January that was sooooo important that made me forget to acknowledge this, and pass it on.
But wait, it gets better. Or worse.
So then, on March 5, Katherine at Life With Arie gave it to us as well!
I thanked both lovely bloggers in the comments on their entries, and in March, I even said "Gee, somebody gave me this, I haven't gotten to it" and still didn't get to it! Geeze, they're going to take my stripes or something. I really am sorry, fellow dog bloggers (which we may or may not want to shorten to "dloggers", but I'm not sure it'll catch on). I do appreciate you! So, with no further delay:
The award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers and deserve recognition. The rules are as follows:
- Thank your Liebster Blog award presenter(s) on your blog
- Link back to the blogger (s) who awarded you
- Give your top 5 picks for the award
- Inform your top 5 by leaving a comment on their blog
- Post the award on your blog
It could be worse. Some of these blog awards want you to pick fifteen people. I follow a lot of dlogs, but fifteen people with fewer than 200 followers? I think I'd be combing through for a little while, there are some popular folks out there!
So, my five:
Houndstooth, over at Tales and Tails. Always accompanied by lovely pictures of the crew (Bunny, Blueberry, Morgan, and Kuster), Houndstooth's entries range from informational to touching to just plain entertaining. Bunny and Blueberry are retired racing greyhounds, Morgan is the grown up German Shepherd, and Kuster is the newcomer German Shepherd, a puppy in Search and Rescue training!
Puppymomma, at The Life of a Puppy Momma. Suvi is her baby, but Pablo and Ramsey are being permitted to share that spot as well, it seems! I'd known about Ramsey and Pablo before, as they are a Youtube famous Doberman and Chihuahua duo, but the addition of Suvi has brought them into the blogosphere, and I love hearing about all three (and seeing the pictures)!
Lauren, at Life With Desmond. Lauren is also the Long Island Dogs Examiner, which gives her further doggie cred, and she talks about diet and dog products and all manner of other things that your heart could desire on the topic of dogs and dog stuff!
2BrownDawgs, which is actually now a misnomer, as they have Thunder, Storm, and Freighter! Freighter is the latest addition, but all three are Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, trained (and training!) as hunting dogs.
Dachshund Nola is a fun dog blog of doggies things, doggies goings on, and of course pictures! I've noticed this is a theme with blogs I follow (and give awards to). I really need to step up my photography game!
So there we have it. Hopefully there are no hard feelings from my award-givers, hopefully my awardees are happy, and all is right with the world!
