Blog Hop Saturday!

It's Blog Hop Saturday and we've been waaaay behind on posting and commenting and all other things blog related.  So, a couple of notes before we go hopping . . .

Tomorrow - Sunday 9/12 - is the last day to email a postcard for the CAMPAIGN TO END BSL: OPERATION DENVER.  Maggie (of Oh My Dog) has been working super hard on this campaign to collect a mile of postcards to deliver to Denver's Mayor Hickenlooper to convince the city to end BSL. Visit Oh My Dog for all the details. 

We want to send out a big "Thank You" to Frankie Furter for hosting an auction through Monday, 9/13, for a personalized dog bone pendant we talked Mom into donating for Shelby and her pups (we are so sad for Shelby that she lost little Molly - she's been through an awful lot in her life and still is such a sweetie). The thing is, we had wanted to donate something, then we got busy, Mom & Dad got busy and we let the auction for Shelby slip right by us. So Frankie was gracious enough to host a separate auction along with his splendid idea for the "Name-the-Pup Auction." We really don't know how he does it all, especially now that he's married to TWO girls! Anyway, we are grateful for his help, so if you wanna check it out, go visit this post at Frankie's blog blog for the details and tell him we said "hi" and "thanks!"

We also want to send out a big "Thank You" to Miley, The Curious Cavorting Cavoodle, for our fabulous award!  Miley, you're a cutie and we appreciate the award.

Now, we're gonna tweak the rules a little 'cause we're getting kinda slack about blogging lately.  Seems that Mom & Dad are hogging the computer more for work and we don't get to use it as much as we would like. 

So, we've done some of them -

1. Please thank the dog who gave this to you, and link to them. 

2. Name 10 (yes 10) things about yourself. Try to be as creative as possible.
Now here's where we start to go off track.  We told you some of our secrets recently, but we can't think of anything right offhand that you guys don't know already!  So, we're holding off on this until we think of something interesting.

3. Award 15 doggie bloggers. It doesn't matter whether they are old or new. I believe all furends deserve this and can't be denied just because you have known them for a while or not.
And here we go way off track 'cause we wanna give awards to every blog we read.  We love you all!  But, we've just found Neeko S. Spaulding, who we think has only been blogging for a couple of months.  We think he's a cutie patootie and we're sure you will, too. So, stop by and say "hi" to Neeko.  

4. Comment on the new receivers of this award's blog to let them know of the love.

5. And the most important: HAVE FUN!!!
Doing it right now :)

Now, on to the blog hop -
