and We Thank the Academy....

As you probably noticed, if you are a follower of our blog, we have been mostly absent in the last few weeks due to the inability of Mack and me to type since we don't have thumbs and having to wait on hu-mom to do it for us. Oh, if only our useless dew claws worked!  Not only would we be blogging, we'd be on Face Book,  tweeting and playing games on, sending emails, among other things.... any way, back to what I was going to say earlier.  Our wonderful blogging friends have bestowed upon us *2* awards in the last few weeks and we haven't posted about them.  So we're going to post the2 different awards given to us recently.  Our blogging friends are so special to us and we've made so many friends in the last 1 1/2 years that we been blogging.  It's really exciting.

Payton gave this award to us.  Along with this honor comes some responsibility…I have to answer the 10 questions below and share 10 random thoughts and/or facts about myself before passing it on to 10 other blogs.  So here it goes:

    10. Tell us something about the dog that tagged you.

    Lola is one of the funniest pugs we've met in a long time and her hu-mom is running at a close 2nd!  Visit their blog to find out.

    We can tag other blogs, but I think it would be wonderful if everyone reading this would tag themselves and tell us more about themselves!  No need to be tagged by anyone.

    Thanks Lola and her mom for sharing this with us.  We are truly honored.


    This has been a really long, long. long post today.  I hope we didn't bore you.
    Please visit the blogs we've touched today, they are all wonderful.  There are so many other blogs that we didn't mention but are just as great.  So if we didn't mention you, please know that we love all of  you equally.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hi Minnie and Mack!
    Oh my Pugness Congratulations on ALL the awards! WOW You had so many! Well done! I love these awards because you guys both get to tell everyone a little bit about you and I just loved hearing about you, espesh my gorgeous Minnie! Minnie, you will be pleased to know that even though you like to eat Cat "treats" I still would kiss you! I have to confess that in my street I'm outnumbered by cats 10 to 1 so have tried my share of Cat "treats" too!
    I can tell that you are quite scared but I would protect you, I protect my Mum from all sorts of noises outside, I even bark at people in their windows with the lights on at night!!! I'm a macho Pugalier! Heee,Heee!
    Love, Licks and BIG Puggie Hugs and Tummy Rubs from your Boy Frank xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
