On the Podium - Sort Of

all worn out after Christmas and New Year's

Over the the middle of all the craziness, I received another Liebster Award from Christine at   Thank You,  Thank You!

I am honored and thrilled!  Being that I am barely over the blogging 100 day mark,  this really is pretty special.

Some of you may have read about my dream to be an Olympic skier.  Over Christmas, somehow that post amazingly became this blog's most popular one to date.  "Wow" is all I can say to that!  For me, wanting to ski merely stemmed from little ole me being sad to always get left at home ALONE while the rest of the family heads to the mountain for a big adventure. 

Coat was Kootenai 's Christmas Gift to me.  Doggles from Santa:)

I may never win an Olympic Medal for skiing....A Dog Can still Dream....Mom gets alittle carried away sometimes...she put a medal around my neck and put me up on the podium with all my new gear - still don't have the skis or boots...and then she started singing the National Anthem and snapped this silly photo.  She told me after receiving all these awards, I  deserved a stand on the podium....oh dear...Sarge, I  think my mama peep might just be a Flake!

Back to the most recent Award....

Again, thank you Christine!

Liebster means “dearest” in German, and the award is intended to help up-and-coming blogs get the attention they deserve. As with any award, there is a bit of ceremony involved. In order to accept the award, you must do the following:

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave you the award
3. Pick your five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award...
Here are my picks to bestow this lovely Award no order...some of these do not show number of followers, but I am honoring them anyway...Congrats to

                                                          These Bloggers!

2) Tootsie - Also a new furiend....all the way across the ocean...her humor and wit are really worth a follow!

4) Kip and Kim - always fun to see what they are up photos too!

5) Suka - Suka has a lot to say....and it is always pawed so artfully.
