Then we thought – what a great opportunity to tell ALL our blogging furiends THANKS! Not just for reading our blog, but for writing yours, too!
You see, when we first had the idea to write this blog, it was just to chronicle this one particular adventure. We had no idea there were so many animal blogs out there. Guess we’ve been too busy playing and eating and stuff to notice. But thanks to Life With Dogs and the Saturday Blog Hop, we found all of you. We’ve been inspired, entertained, touched and informed by reading ALL of your blogs. And, to paraphrase Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets – don’t you just love that movie? Little Verdel is just the cutest thing! What? Oh, yeah, paraphrasing Jack Nicholson – You make us want to be a better blog! We think you are biggest bunch of creative, funny, smart and generous people and animals we’ve ever met!
As we humbly perform our award duties, we just wanna say we are honored to be in your company!
So, here’s a few things you might not know about us.
1 - This isn’t our first road trip! No sir. We’ve been traveling since we came to live with our parents. And that’s because -
2- We didn’t always live together full time. Mom and Dad lived in different parts of the country once upon a time (some of us lived with Mom and some with Dad) and we’ve traveled through many states to see each other, mostly in automobiles, but some of us have done a bit of flying! But we never really wrote about our travels, or even took many pictures of what and who we saw, what we did, the motels we snuck into, the places we pooped, the trees we sniffed and peed.
3 - This was our first trip with the food hauler.
4 – This was our first trip that lasted more than a week.
5– Not too long ago, we also had three German Shepherd brothers - Dusty, Jake and Jett. Over the past few years, they have gone over the Bridge and we miss them terribly.
6 – This is our first trip without them and we were sad not to have them with us. You might notice there are eight dogs on our logo – we couldn’t bear to think of a trip without the big guys, so we had the logo made, including them of course, and plastered it on the food hauler and the truck and carried their photos with us. Obviously, not the same, but it made us feel better to have their smiling faces with us! They sure loved the road trips. Of course, they are always in our hearts and thoughts, but we miss them so!
7 – We have a very fluid sense of time - in case you hadn't noticed :)
We’re more than thrilled that you stop by and visit and hopefully are entertained on occasion. We’re entertained by all of your blogs, for sure!
Now, we’re gonna take another page from Pip’s blogging manual and offer up this award to ALL our blogging furiends. There are too many to mention individually and we have way too many favorites – all of YOU!
