We are the best!

Hey pups! It's celebration time again, as we have recieved yet another nomination for an award. This time it is the Liebster Award!

I would like to thank Champ and his Mom of Life as a Champ for the nomination. They have also nominated us for the Super Sweet Blog and Versatile blogger award about which you can read here. The rules of the award are as follow:

>List the nominator’s blog on your blogroll with a link.
>Answer 11 questions asked by your nominator- handing over to Mom.

1. What are your favourite non-food smells? I love the smell of my pillow- weird as it may be. I also love the smell of rainy air, rain and fresh air!
2. More importantly, do you like the smell of dog paws? You bet I do- especially Dina's!
3. What are more repelling, spiders or snakes? I'm going to have to go with snakes- I watch waaayyyyy too many nature programmes whose themes are 'people who survived insect attacks'.
4. How many kinds of pets do you have? I have just Dina-Pie but I used to have a tortoise and two budgies.
5. Do you have middle names for your pets? No but what an interesting idea!
6. What is the best prank you've ever pulled? Probably the time when my family, before Dina, went for a walk and we were waiting for the bus back and I kept saying "The bus is coming!" when it wasn't becuase I found it hilarious when they leapt up. I kept on doing it until it lost its magic. Then the actual bus was coming and they didn't believe me, so I just let it go past. I don't know whether this counts as a prank or an act of meaness but still.
7. What was the name of your first dog? Dina
8. Have you been to the Pacific NW? Nope, never!
9. Have you ever ridden a horse? Yes, I have. Once when I was a little girl as a holiday treat. I do plan on getting riding lessons in the future and maybe, possibly getting my own horse!
10. Do you prefer buttered popcorn or kettle corn? Kettle corn!
11. If you could be any living person in the world for a day, who would it be? Hmm .. I would love to be Kyra Sundance!

>Provide 11 random facts about yourself

  1. I am Polish- which you might guess by the fact I give Dina commands in Polish.
  2. I have a great passion for reading and while probably read most recommendation i get.
  3. My three favourite breeds are Doberman, Labrador and Greyhound.
  4. My favourite movie is 2 Fats 2 Furious and my favourite animated move is Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

Licks and Wags,


  1. Congrats on your award and thanks for passing it on to us!! Regarding your #5 (the marathon) mom said to tell you that if she can run a marathon anyone can run one. All you have to do is pick a good one, register, and then train. Mom ran 13 miles today and she is VERY, VERY old! She does that every Monday. So let us know which one you pick! Thanks again!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
