We're Stylin'

We are honored to be a recipient of the Stylish blogger Award from sweet Minnie and handsome Lincoln of  A Minnie Minute.

We are to share 7 things about us and then award this to others!  What fun.  Here we go:

1.  Mack moved in with us when he was about 5 years old.  He lived with one of our hu-brothers and his wife  until the hu-babies started arriving....and they felt they couldn't give him the love and attention he needed, so he came to our house permanently.  (He knew us well since we used to dog-sit him all the time.)

2. Our kitties, Osiris and Brodie, lived with a different hu-brother.  When he had to move out of his apartment, he moved back home and along came the kitties!  They are still here, he is here only when  home on college breaks. This hu-brother is getting married in December and also graduating from college in August, so he hopes he can find a place that will accept kitties and they will move with him and his new wife (She loves kitties, too.)

3.  There is actually another kitty living at our house.  Her name is Puddin'.  She belongs to Hu-Grandmother.  She's about 18 years old and HATES Mack and me and the kitties.  When Hu-Grandmother moved from Texas to Virginia to live with us over 10 years ago, she brought her 2 kitties.  Snowflake has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge but Puddin' is still here. Hu-Grandmother has a "grandmother" suite at our house, so us doggies and kitties are not allowed to cross into each other's space.  You should hear the racket when this does happen!  WW III. and Puddin' lets go of other stuff, too, if you know what I mean....

4. Mack and I get to go to work with hu-mom almost every day.
Here are our friends that get to come to work each day:

     2 Border Collies - Holly and Jackie
        1  Dalmation- Oliver
      1 Big Mixed Breed Big Doggie named Kipper
      2 office cats - Charlie Williams and Zoe
     1 African Gray Parrot - Ripley, she stays at our house  sometimes, you might have seen our blog posts about her...

From time to time we have other furry visitors, too.

5. Minnie has never moved.

6. Mack LOVES strawberries!

7. We are on the RAW diet and are thriving on it!

Ok enough about us....

As part of winning this wonderful award, we were asked to pass it on to some deserving Blogville Friends. We have made many Blogville friends in our short time being a citizen.  We are presenting this award to the following friends and thank them for entertaining us and being our friends:

Honey the Great Dane (and her new kitty sister Muesli)

Please accept this award with our sincerest wishes.  If you do not wish to participate, no problem!  We just want you all to know that you are appreciated.

Have a great weekend.

Minnie :)

I'm starting to like these awards where the recipient has to pass it on, while listing some info about themselves. It helps us get to know each other a little better. Now the question is how much of it will I remember when I meet some of you at Blogpaws or one of the Pet Expos?

Congrats on your award! I do like your style. It sounds like you Humom works at a wonderful place. I wish I could bring a hound or two to work with me every day. Strawberries, really? Very interesting. Have a great weekend!!

I like going to work with Mom on occasion, but I wouldn't want to do it every day. It would cut into my napping schedule!

Congrats on your award! I definitely think you're stylish! Seeing your new blog posts in my Google Reader always makes me smile. :)

I had no idea you had such a full household right now! I bet there's NEVER a dull moment!

Thanks so much for thinking of us for this award! It was such a nice surprise to see our blog listed. :D

Honey the Great Dane said...

Aww...I loved this post! It's always great to learn more about your guys - and I never knew about Puddin'! And WOW - you are SO lucky (and those other doggies too) to be able to go to work with your human!

Thanks so much for thinking of me too - I'm so touched! :-) You are one of my favourite blog friends and I always look forward to coming to visit! :-)

Well congratulations on your award Minnie... And I just learned a whole lot about you and your family. What a wonderful Hu-mom you have to take in those in need of a loving home ;) And how lucky are you to have so many 'siblings'. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Wow! All of those pets go to work every day? That must be a very exciting car ride!
