This week I’m thankful for This n’ That Thursday Blog Hop hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and their co-host Ruckus the Eskie. Stop by and see what other bloggers are doing today! I have a few pieces of loose fur that need attention making this n’ that a perfect blog hop for me today!
First of all I would like to thank my kitty friends at Texas, a cat in Austin for presenting me with the Best Moment Award. It is always special for a dog to receive praise from cats, not claws in the nose and hissing! If you aren’t familiar with their blog, stop by and take a read!Now I have to tell you about my sister Bailie and how I need to keep a paw on her or she may take over my life, yikes! Guess who tied for second place as Mover of the Month in December? Yep, Bailie of all dogs! Kayo was first, but he is always first so PetsMove decided to award the three prizes to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place winners. Bailie had 185 paws and beat me by just one paw…that little stinker! Now the pressure is on for me to win the January Mover of the Month award since even Katie won the senior competition in November. I’m starting to feel like a lazy bum dog, but I’m really so active, just down on my
luck paws. On the bright side, she won a super cool K9 FitBone which we can all share to work on our fitness. Stay tuned down the road for a post about how it works out for us. I guess if prizes stay in the family it isn’t so bad!
Speaking of moving, my sisters and I participated in the first ever Move Your Mutt-A-Thon last Saturday. All we had to do was 30 minutes or more of an activity in the morning and then post a video or photo of it. Luckily, we had a warm spell, so we all could take a long walk. I filmed part of it myself with my Sony action cam (the best part is when I see the squirrel), and Mom filmed the rest. It isn’t the most fun filled video ever, but with only Mom to hold the camera and three dogs on flexi leashes in the other hand, it came out pretty darn good. We had to all be on the flexi’s so we would be far enough out front to film. Mom did edit out some of the parts with questionable language when some of us took off in the snow or tangled up around the others.
The last item I have today is a short review of Jackie Bouchard‘s book What the Dog Ate. We follow her blog which you should check out if you aren’t already reading it, and this book sparked our interest. Jackie is a dog lover, author, and blogger. Mom and I started reading the book on our Florida vacation in November but didn’t get it finished until Jan. 1. Mom isn’t a big reader and we had so much going on it took forever. First, I have to say that Mom loved the book but it really isn’t a book for dogs to read. I found it interesting but I wouldn’t recommend buying it for a dog. Mom said it was a bit creepy for her as there were a lot of similarities to things that have happened or are happening in her own life, but that made it all the more interesting. It got Mom thinking s but it was also quite amusing. I would give the book a four paws up for adult human females. It is not Jackie’s most recent book, but with my mom any book is a major accomplishment! You can get it on Amazon here.
That is a wrap for today!
