Two Awards From Three Bloggers!!

Seems like I'm always behind, ask my kids and grandkids, their birthday presents and cakes are often not on time. I haven't written on this blog for awhile so I'm behind on that too! Lawn needs mowed, there's always the house and now it seems our neighboring town got "blown away" in the storms last night, wonder if I can get gas for the mower there?
I'm back, the town is still there, trees and branches down all over, I think they may have lost about 10% of their huge trees, too much rain and too high a wind. BTW I stopped @ the Stover Animal Shelter Thrift Shop to see my friend and make sure she was OK. They have 3 female maltese in central MO if anyone is interested. Back to the storm it was straight wind with much rain and saturated ground, many of the huge old trees just fell over because the ground was mud. The warning sirens didn't work, they were on too much last week from the tornadoes and burnt out. Can we say bad weather is our name? Only a few houses damaged, park is BAD, a roof off of the old quilting factory.
Back to the awards!

'Your blog deserves to be shot!' This award is from Checkers The Peekapoo
and from SASSY SASHA THE LOVABLE SHIH TZU two of my bestest doggie buddies and their mama's aren't bad either. Seriously two of the cutest canines anywhere with their people and adventures, check them out they are sure to give a lift to your day! Thank you Sasha and Checkers.
And the rules are:
1.Post the award and link it to the person (or canine) that gave it to you.
2. Choose 5 life situations that could be repeated in slow motion and explain why.
3. List up to 12 blogs and pass the love to them.
Since this is mostly for Dispatch my dog I will give his life situations that he likes most that could be repeated in slow motion (all day long as far as he is concerned)
  1. Any kind of rub involving the belly, chest, or ears.
  2. When mommy feeds him and gives him more of the white pieces of kibble because he likes them best.
  3. Going to bed and rubbing all over the bed to make sure it smells like him.
  4. When he gets his collar on because then he knows he's going somewhere.
  5. And last but not least waking up and scooting a little closer to mommy so he can feel her and giving a sigh before he goes back to sleep.
In the case of this award I would like to nominate:
Percy and owner from Percy's Adventures
AL and her dog Coffee from Burnt Chicken Republic
Bell and her mommy from Awesome Dogs @ OB Dog Beach
Hickchick and her brood of foster puppies @ Hickchick Thinks
Thomas @ K-9 Corner
Crystal Jigsaw and her dogs (soon to some be puppies too!) from Crystal Jigsaw
These are great animal blogs, well they have some people things in them too, please check them out though!
And every one of my followers and blogs I follow are deserving, check them out, there's another dog blog but I don't seem to be able to find it! I found it!! A Dog's Beach
you get the award too, sorry it's a bit belated.

The next one is from my friend MzzLily @ her blahwg! blog. It's the "Love My Friends Award". I thank you and I am honored once again. All of MzzLily's blogs are interesting and have excellent writing, examples of what blogs should be. And a nice person to boot.
This is a description of the award:
The Love My Friends award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.

If you click on my awards to the side you will see who has given me awards in the past. I would like to include those bloggers, since they have already received the award I can't actually pass it onto them but they are the ones who are deserving of it. I'm talking about you MzzLily ( becoming an author... my journey) and Squirrel Queen (The Road to Here), as well as those above who passed the "your blog deserves to be shot" award to me, Sasha (SASSY SASHA THE LOVABLE SHIH TZU) and Checkers (Checkers The Peekapoo) and of course their mommies too! And also Rae (Weather Vane) excellent writing with an excellent point of view.
These people are true friends, loyal, understanding, and caring. Please take a moment if you can and see what you've been missing if you aren't following them already.

Now if you received an award do what you will with it. It's my first day of my "weekend" too wet to mow and the couch and the bichon are calling my name!

Hi TC,

You are just loaded with awards, congratulations you are deserving of all of those and more. Thank you for thinking of my blog, I am honored.

Looking back at past comments it looks like the one I left you last night didn't take. I awarded you the Love My Friends also, it was late I should have checked closer. Since I did that one last night I am going to put it up on the sidebar but not post it again. Thank you for the thought and have a wonderful day.

Any more word on the alligator? lol


Kimberly & Bell said...

Wow,,,, are you giving me the shoot me award or the hearts award? I'm a dog I want everything BOL, only playing. I like that you like me and my mom. We're going to doggy beach she told me when she's off work I CANT WAAAAAAAAIT... BAHROOOOOOOOO I'M EXCITED!

Rae said...

Thanks TC. It means a great deal to me that you like my blog. I am so pleased to have you for a friend.

You are very deserving of this award. Congrats.

TC said...

Judy no word on the alligator. With the murder and the storms they seem to have forgotten about the gator in this "sleepy" part of the world.

Thanks for the love my friends award also, I've had problems with comments not wanting to post lately?

TC said...

Bell you get the shoot me award!! Dogs must learn discipline too, I didn't give Dispatch any ice cream till the BOTTOM of the bowl. LOL
Congratulations and I do like you all.

TC said...

Rae you are welcome, I'm so very glad to be your friend also.
I'm supposed to be weedeating but have discovered another dog blog http://life-with-dogs.blogspot.com/ and am reading and reading, that's why they call it a day off of work right? LOL

AL said...

Hey TC, it's raining awards here! Take care and congratulations.


TC said...

AL that's the way I feel too. Congratulations to you too!!

chicamom85 said...

Congratulations TC and it is nice to be loved, thank you


TC said...

Congratulations to you Anne! And Sasha too!

MzzLily said...

Thanks for the wonderful words! You are too sweet! It's so nice to have great friends in Blogville that I can visit any time I like!

TC said...

Yes aint it great MzzLily, no phone, no wondering if we are waking someone up!! Thanks for saying I'm sweet, I hardly ever get that, wonder why? LOL

Hi TC, this is a bit like a day at the Oscars! Will there be a big party afterwards? Thank you so much for my award - I'm really grateful that you have thought of me. I love the little meme - think I might wait until Sparky's puppies are born then do it then.

As for the trees, what a huge shame. I hope new trees will be planted now.

Best wishes, CJ xx

hickchic said...

Thx TC so very very much for the award, is much appreciated. I must admit though hickchic has no idea how to post it on my blog and pass it on, and then there is the prob of who would I send it too...lol, seeing how I have very few followers or followings, and be wet-behind-the-ears...in other words, still be a newborn in the bloggin community, but hey, this old dog is learnin some new tricks, just much slower now!
Thx again,

TC said...

You can do a speech CJ, just like @ the oscars;-)

So no puppies yet?

They will plant trees, I'm sure. Most of the ones that fell were 30+ years old, big leafy things that caught the wind, town won't look the same for a bit.

TC said...

Hickchick no worry, you can pass it on now or wait or not pass it on. No pressure. To get the picture you just right click on it and save to your computer, pardon if you knew that.

RockstarJen said...

thanks for the visit and the award! tempest & riptide are stoked. :)

PhilipH said...

I was wondering about your 'mole' problem. Have you solved the problem of these darn critters? My rear grass area has become almost mountainous for about a year. Traps don't work - well, not for me. Anyway, as soon as a mole is, err, removed, another takes up squatters rights!

I may have recently rid the garden of them by using some torn up plastic bags and a bit of petrol. Stuffed the plastic in the holes I could locate, dosed it with petrol and whoosh, ignition and take off! Must have made their habitat uncomfortable and smelly; there has been no sign of them for over 10 days now!

chicamom85 said...

The hell with the squirrels, pass over that cheese stick! I love string cheese, my sister Katy and I share one every day when she gets home from work.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

TC said...

OK Sasha, I'll send one your way. My mommy tries to open them real quiet but I can hear her no matter where she is. She used to stuff them in my kong but Mugsey lost all of them.

TC said...

RockstarJen you are welcome, I do enjoy your blog, all the pictures of the dogs enjoying themselves......and I LOVE the beach, any beach.

TC said...

PhilipH thanks for stopping by and your solution to the moles sounds good to me. We have poison worms @ work you are supposed to stuff into the mole holes, I asked what happens to the cats if they eat a mole then?
My moles are worse, they are away from the house though where I put the grub killer, we mow about 4 acres or 5 though and grub killer for it would cost a fortune... plastic bags and gas, maybe kerosene or diesel, sounds like it would make them move out @ least!!

Checkers said...

mom says I'm becoming a tween - like Livy and we're both major PIA's [pains in the a$$] most of the time! BOL - we know she's just kidding and she loves us dearly - I don't think mom has 21 years left - so I doubt I'll make it either!

TC said...

Oh Checkers I'm SURE your mom has 21 years left, my mom will just be getting started good on old age then, maybe she will be really late middle aged. LOL

Thomas said...

Hi TC,
Thank you so much for the award! I'm sorry it toke so long for me to get back to you, it's been a mad house around here. I will get it posted as soon as I can, and thank you again, your the best!

TC said...

You are welcome Thomas, no rush to post it. Take care! I understand about mad house, 2 weeks to do a bunch of stuff and the lawn mower throws a blade off!!
