So long Holiday, Hello Regular Work!

Hi all you pups and kitties!

My Mom says Holidays in the middle of the week get her all mixed up but we are pretty sure today is Monday!  Happy New Week to evfurry buddy!

Our Pal Dennis the Vizsla dog was  nice enough to give us an award on Sunday.  Just in case you are wondering what Dennis is up to, he has a Darth Vader thing going on now, ahhh, so funny, don't you just love that crazy guy!  We are supposed to say where it came from and then we are supposed to hand it out to 15 favorite blogs.  Now thats hard to do, because  15 is a lot of blogs, so I have about five blogs  that I have time to give it to.  Three Dog Blog is one and there is a lot in there about geriatric dogs, which is a good thing to know, then I will say KB who takes us to the Rockies and wild critters and all the fun she has.  OK, thats two, then how about the Fl.SunDogs Trio, thats a good blog, then The Happy Heelers are always fun to see, either arguing or swimming or herding.  They have a blast.  One last one!  I have to go back to one of my newest pals Cloud the Wonder Dog who is singlefootedly trying to rid the world of squirrels.  Do we owe him a debt or what?

Now I read lots of other blogs and love them all, so you can just help yourself to this award and if anyone asks say Stella sent you!

A new blog to me is The Other End of the Leash written by Patricia McConnell.  Those of you who read and love her books will further enjoy this blogspot.  The blurb on the header says : Welcome to an ongoing inquiry about the behavior of people and dogs. I would like this to be a forum for people who are both intellectually and emotionally fascinated by the behavior of the animals at both ends of the leash. My hope is that it will become a place for an informed and thoughtful consideration of the amazing relationship between people and dogs—my two favorite species."  This is gonna be great, I say!

My Mom and I walked to town this morning and she gets all bent out of shape because I have to stop and sniff all the tires of all the pickup trucks we pass.  Not cars, just pickups.  Do any of you other dogs do this? I think maybe I was a country dog when I was a pup, but the smell is just the best.

Hi ya Stella! Great award! And, yes, love The Other End of The Leash site!

I don't smell truck tires...perhaps we are too pavement boring here..but, I will give it a try. Might be missing something!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Stella, my mom thinks I used to ride in the back of a pickup truck because every time we walk past one on walkies I start wagging my tail and getting excited.

Lucky you to get a holiday at this time of year is all we can say over here in the UK! And if we had pickup trucks in Scotland, I'm sure I'd sniff their tyres too! But then I don't really discriminate...
Thanks once again for pointing me in the direction of some fascinating looking blogs. If only Gail would stop hogging the computer doing this boring 'work' stuff.....
Hope all's well with you, dear Stella.
Cheers! H.

Well, I don't get to go for walks down the street so I don't know about that Stella. I do like to sniff the tyres on mum's car in the garage though.

Congratulations on your award. Hi Ali Z!

Congrats, Stella - awesome award. We are going to have to check out The Other End of the Leash, sounds intriguing. And yes, we do sniff truck tires - not sure why but they sure smell good.

Woos, the OP Pack

Thanks for the blog recommendation! Mom wants to read her book so before then, she can read the blog. (As if she isn't horrible enough at keeping up with blogs lately!)
