HappyMonday (my Mom says that is a misnomer) so I will say it and not have to ask what she means for one of those lengthy explain deals:

Our good furiend, the handsome and clever, Dennis the Visla gave us another award for just being us! It is the Pawsome Award and this is what the words say:

This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it’s return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can’t wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a “Paw”some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award.

I want to thank Dennis the Visla, who is pretty Pawsome himself for thinking of us for this award.

Now I think every dog who writes a blog is Pawsome and would have a terrible time trying to choose just a few. So if you don't have this award, please accept it from me, Stella, with all good wishes. Then pass it on to whomever you choose.

I am pretty grumpy about the weather, as usual, so just allow me a few words about it. It stays chilly, 30s-50 F., every day we get rain, and sometimes snow, but it don't stick. My Mom tells me April showers bring May flowers but all I say is they bring me wet dirty feet that my Mom insists on wiping off before I get into the kitchen or the rest of the house and I really hate that. It about kills me to see all the lovely walks the rest of you guys are getting, the Army of Four, the Thundering Herd, Hamish the Westie, all stomping around in what looks like decent weather. But at least I know Khrya would love this wet stuff and sit outside in it. Takes all kinds, I say. Ah well, ces't la vie!

It's been icky and rainy down south too. But at least the grass is finally growing. We still find the mud patches and squish it between our toes.

Don't waste too much time feeling jealous of our weather here in Scotland Stella! We have plenty of cold grey damp and windy stuff in between the odd glimpses of sunshine. Gail says you can tell the April weather's a mixed bag if you know some poetry!
"When in April the sweet showers fall" (Chaucer)
"Oh to be in England now that April's there" (Browning)
"April is the cruelist month..." (Eliot).

It's a bit much expecting us dogs to know that sort of stuff, don't you think!

Cheers! H.

Thanks so much Stella for the warning about Mr. Stick's movements. I will be sure to keep a lookout. Please forgive me for not being around much lately, my kennel work has almost got me overwhelmed but I wanted to let you know I appreciate all your comments. I sincerely hope the weather becomes more amicable (sounds good, just don't know what it means either) but I hope it suits your fur, if you know what I mean. I don't like the whole paw wiping either. I don't get it, they like to buy stuff with painted pawprints on and then they wipe ours off so they don't show up. Whatever, huh?

Woofs and warmer slobbers,

Congrats on the award - your blog IS awesome and so are you. Trust me, we are not stomping around in nice weather - rain, drizzle, tornado watches, and more rain, and now it is a cold rain. Tomorrow will be better.

Woos, the OP Pack

I hear your weather frustrations! High of 58 and rainy/windy today means our yard will stay muddy and Sister and I don't get to run around and play. Though we were forecast for 3 degrees warmer than DL today (that is where you are, right?)!
