I'm so lucky to have so many furiends!

Tuesday, August 11, 2009


Gosh! I'm not sure what happened but over the last week I have been given several awards. Thanks to my furiends for making me feel even more special!

This first award was given to me by Selby and her dogs. Selby's dogs, Adele, Vincent, and Bella are super cute....and not just because Adele is a doxie. Adele is also Vincent and Bella's mom. So, if you have not been to visit Selby, be sure and stop over. You'll be glad you did!
Thank you so much, Selby, for this great award!
The rules for this award are:
*Give thanks and link back to the one who sent you the award.
*Post the logo on your blog.
*List seven things about yourself that others might find interesting.
*Pass the award on to seven other kreativ bloggers.
I have gotten this award recently, and posted my seven things here if you would like to see them. Now, since I am not a selfish doggy, I would like for Mom to post some interesting things about her.

Thanks, Twix for sharing your award with me! It might be tough to come up with seven interesting things here but I will try.
1. I work for an opthalmologist doing research.
2. I have only been married for 3 years.
3. I am a doxie-holic! You probably knew that already.
4. Twix is the first dog I ever got as a puppy-she was 5 1/2 weeks old when she came to live with me. Too young to be away from her mom, I know, but I didn't have much choice.
5. I wore a royal blue dress at my wedding. I think that is interesting or at least weird.
6. I have had Type 1 diabetes since I was 4 years old.
7. According to others, I look about 10 years younger than I really am! WooHoo!
Alright, Twix, I'm finished. What do you think?
It looks okay to me, Momma. I hope my furiends think that bunch of odd things are interesting and not just psycho!

My second award comes from Hero the Sharpei. Hero lives in Jakarta, Indonesia and is a very handsome guy. Please stop by and say Hello to Hero. You'll be missing out if you don't!
Hero, thanks for this excellent award!
It is my understanding that this award says "Your blog is a dream". With this award, I am supposed to post 7 beauty tips and pass the award on to 7 friends. I think I can do that.
1. NEVER refuse food of any kind (except nasty olives)!
2. Steal as much food as you can!
3. Rummage through the trash if you smell something yummy in there!
4. Make sure to hide after stealing food so you don't get caught!
5. If you do get caught, run for your life while swallowing your prize whole, if needed. You don't want them to take it away from you, do you?
6. Do whatever it takes to get a treat from Mom or Dad.
7. Take a nap after you wake up, during the afternoon, and before going to bed. Add additional naps as necessary.
**These beauty tips are the sole responsibility of Twix. They do not reflect the thoughts or opinions of the parents.

And my third award comes from Cole and all her small stuff. She has quite a cute blog and some very cute doggies. Please visit Cole and you might come away with a great recipe for dinner.
Cole, thanks for thinking of me with this fantastic award!
The only rule for this award is to accept it, display it proudly on your blog for the bloggy world to see your greatness and/or pass it on to other bloggers as you see fit.
This award was also given to all us doggie bloggies by Bijou, Brownie, and Mason Dixie. Thanks to each one of you for your generosity. Please stop by their blogs if you haven't. They are all great furiends and have the best stories!

Oops! I forgot to give the awards away. I can't possibly pick different people to give each award to, so if you do not have these awards please take them. I think all the blogs I follow are Kreativ, Dreamy, and Gem Worthy.

Lastly, thanks for all the well wishes for my Mom. She is feeling much better and back to work. I did take her to the doctor but they weren't sure what she had and told her it was a bad virus going around. Hopefully, she is done being sick for a while. All that extra work taking care of her was cutting into my eating/napping time....HA!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Twix!
Congratulations on your Awards! Well deserved!
Those things about your mom are very interesting! My mom is the opposite... she looks 10 years older than she is!!! Haa!
Thanks for the tips but...
Rummage through the trash?? I think I'd be in trouble if I do that!
I am so happy to know that your Mom is feeling much better!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Congratulations on all of your cool awards. We don't have the diamond so we are going to take it, I hope thats ok. I am so glad Mom is better. When Mommies are sick, nothing seems right. My Dad has diabetes and has had it for a very long time. I love your tips Twix, you and I have much in common. When I find a yummy snack lying around I run and hide and if my family tries to get it I also swallow it as fast as I can. Your sleeping schedule is perfect also.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

The OP Pack said...

Congrats on all those special awards, Twix! Mom's favorite color is blue and royal blue is the best so nothing weird about wearing that for her wedding day. And thanks for all the beauty tips - we never can get at the trash but we'll have to work on that.

Woos, the OP Pack

Congratulations on your awards! And I'm glad to hear that your Mom is feeling better - it's no fun when our humans are sick. As for the car racing? My Mom and Dad do this thing called "autocross" or "Solo"; you can race in pretty much any car, and it is 'precision driving' - the events are held in big parking lots or on airport tarmacs, and you drive around a course marked by cones. The fastest person wins, but you have to follow the course (which is different every day, and sometimes changes halfway through the day), and for every cone you hit, (and my Mom hits A LOT of them!), you get a 2 second penalty. There is a National Championship every year that attracts over 1,000 drivers. To get a sense of it, have your Mom watch this video: http://gallery.mac.com/davidbreslauer1#100015 A friend of ours did this video - he lives near us, and shows his drive to the event then one of his runs in his MINI. I've seen Mom after a fast run, and it REALLY gets your adrenaline pumping, but is totally safe. Does that help? If not, ask Mom - she LOVES to talk about it!

Hi Twix... Have you gone camping in the woods or at the beach? Was it very fun?

billiejean said...

Hi Twix, Mummy will shower Cookie every time she rubs herself in the sand.. I like to rub myself in the sand too..

Mochi and Mommy said...

Congrats on all your great awards!

Glad your mom is feeling better and it was so good of you to take care of her! Now time for you to take a nap!


Cocorue said...

how's your mum today???
thanks for your comments....looks like our mums think alike.
i will accept any awards given to me as mum says it's only good manners to accept and thank the giver and to remember that THEY chose us; they could have chosen others......

so, when i give, i also give with my heart (which had a mind of its own and was so generous on my birthday bol.....)

because i'm so outspoken for a little chi, mum says not many will like me or my big mouth or guts ( i told her it's their problem, not mine...and there have been a couple who have barked my way hee hee...)

so i should be grateful when the few show their tolerance ha ha.....that's my mum the joker, don't mind her....

better shut up now,

Cocorue said...

me big mouth had to return to say this....

yeah i agree it's complicated....see how much our 2leggers have influenced us.....our life would be so carefree if they'd left us alone huh????

oooo i'm so glad i'm on the other side of the world, otherwise we would be gossiping nightly bol.....

Hi Twix! Sorry I've not been coming by to visit lately. LS has been really busy.

Congrats on your awards! Hope your mom is feeling better now!

Life With Dogs said...

Great award haul - and I'm with you on never refusing food!! :)

SEDONA said...

Hey Twixie, congrats on all those cool awards!
That was so cool of you to let your human do the post. My human loved hearing all those cool things about her and thinks they'd really click in person :-)
Glad you took such good care of her and that she's feeling better.
Your pal,

Martha Basset said...

So glad your mom is feeling better, Twix. Many congratulations on all your well deserved Awards and good work doing the Tag!
Your mom sounded like an interesting person even though she is dog mad!
We also never refuse food.

Dear Twix
I'm glad your Momma is feeling better.
It is too much to worry about when someone you love is sick, so I expect you feel better too.
I'm glad you got lots of awards for being cool.
My Mum met a nice weiner dog called Chas the other day.
She will put his picture on my blog soon.
ps I will follow your advice.
one tip for you
keep lots of torn up paper and stuff under your Mom and dad's bed
then you will know where to find it and they will have a hard time getting it out
love from Buster
