                         I can't be completely wordless, but the pictures do the telling...

Remember that photo?  That was me as The Nutty Professor for Halloween.  I ended up winning a big prize from Sam's Club....

Here's a photo of me with SOME of my loot:

Two BIG bags of Pup-Peroni and four bags of Waggin Train Jerky Tenders!  Whew.  Lil' Me won enough treats for an army of dogs!  My Pancreatitis keeps me from enjoying these, but I talked mom into purchasing some blankets (thanks to suggestions from many of you) and we packaged 'em all up and are on our way to the local animal shelter Paying It Forward. 

Now...Right in Line with my Paying it Forward wish is this....
 I am so honored and thrilled to have received my very first award from  2browndawgs - Thank you, Thank You!   Please visit their page and check out all the extra cute puppie photos!  Oh. My. Goodness.  How will they ever choose just one?

Liebster Award
These are the rules for the Liebster Award:
1. Thank the giver and link back to them.
2. Reveal your top five picks {with less than 200 readers} and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite up-and-coming bloggers and keep it going!
It is SO hard to just pick five, but I tried to give the award to some blogs I have been following for a bit and some of the newer blogs I just started following.  Here are my five picks (in no particuliar order) for this award:

1)  Dachsund Nola and her entire family are so endearing!  Boston is PG (yay!) and one of my favorite posts is about Nola's Gotcha Day!  Head there to read all about it!

2) Yuki and Rocket  the photographs are are the Tasty Tuesday recipes and photos of those!  Yuki and Rocket were some of my very first followers and they have been SO helpful and encouraging along the way! 

3) Bailey Be Good I am so in AWE of Bailey's (yep, she's a girl) beautiful website and the cute ears that Bailey shows off in all of her photos!  Nala also is featured and is a cutie too! Make sure and check out their Dogs in Cars is really pawesome!

4) Kootenai's Climb  This is a very new blog, but Kootenai is my BFF and sister...Her Mom is my Human Mom's daughter and they now live far away (but thankfully are coming home for Christmas)  Her blog will have lots of hiking adventures and scenic photos. 

5) Chronicles of Cardigan    Dewi & John Farleigh's site is also impressive.  They both recently got to go visit THE Tiffany & Company (which made me a little jealous) and their escapades are quite entertaining!

CONGRATS fellow bloggers!  Now it's your turn to spread the love and Pay it Forward
