Doggie Bloggie Award

Thanks to Rescued Insanity for giving us the Doggie Bloggie Award!!  We could not be more honored!  And I love what was written about Lola, "It sounds like Lola and Shiva may have a lot in common."  It is always good to know that there are others out there that have gone through the same thing and understand. 

Here are the rules of the Doggie Bloggie Award:
1) Thank the person who gave the award and link to them.
2) Name 10 things about yourself-creative, weird, enticing, whatever.
3) Award 15 doggie bloggers-whoever you think deserves this regardless of whether they are old or new.
4) Share the love with the doggie bloggers you award by commenting on their site.
5) Finally, have a great time! After all, doggies are nothing if not fun!

Here are the 15 doggie bloggers I am passing this on to.  And they are in no particular order.  They are all great entertaining blogs.

Here are the 10 things about myself.
1.  I am a numbers girl.  I love tracking and graphing things to see how things change. I know I am a nerd, but I just loving tracking things with numbers because you can learn so much from it.

2. I love craigslist.  For the past 2 to 3 years, I have been going through all my crap stuff and sold so many different things on craigslist, from clothes to games to electronics, and everything in between.  

3.  I love the company and people I work for.  I work with some very strong personalities but  we all seem to fit together like a puzzle and have a great time together, even when we are working.

4.  I love to read. And I read a huge variety.  Everything from Harry Potter (which I LOVE), the Shopaholic series when I need something fun and quick, more serious and in depth novels, and non-fiction, including math and science, economics and history.  I feel like there is so much to learn out there and books are a great way to learn new things. 

5.  I just started doing volunteer work this fall that benefits woman and children in my community.  I have had such a good life and have had more than I could ever want and need as a child, so I thought it was important that I give back to the community in some way.  And so far I am really enjoying it.

6.  I LOVE  I love getting free money for just using their search engine. 

7.  I usually read the blogs I follow in google reader.  I have separate folders set up and read them in a very specific order.  I know it is very strange.  I think it maybe my little bit of OCD. 

8.  I am a horrible spell.  And I mean horrible.  I am so grateful that there is now spell check.  I don't know what I would do if I did not have it.  So, I you see anything misspelled in my post (and I am sure there has to be some) please give me a pass. 

9.  I am a huge Cubs fan, (Yankees are my second team) and I know next year will be our year. 

10.  And if you have made it this far, I thank you.  I only had 11 posts last month, so I am going to work much harder on posting more this month. 


  1. Thank you for the award and for reading our blog. It's true there are so many good blogs that it's hard to get to them all. Our Mom does her best, but somedays it's impossible. We're going to try to post more this month, too. We need more hours in the day.
