Awards and Getting to Know You

I received 2 awards from my new furiend, Nola.   Thank you so much for giving me my very first ever award, Nola!  If you don't know Nola, please visit her at Dachshund Nola.  

The first award is The Opposites Attract Award.

It's rules are:
1.  Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Post it on your blog.
3.  Pass it along to at least one other blogger.
I would love to pass this award on to
any of my furiends who would like to have it.

The second award is The Sunshine Award.

It has the following rules:
1.  Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
2.  Share 11 random facts about yourself.
3.  Answer the 11 questions the blogger made up for you.
4.  Make up 11 questions for your nominees.
5.  Pass it along to as many bloggers as you'd like.

I like this award because it gives you the opportunity to get to know me and I get to know more about you.
Hmmm...11 random facts about me.
1.  I lived at a puppy mill for the first 3-4 years of my life, having puppies.  I'm fortunate to have
only lived there for that long.
2.  Even though I have lived with Daddy and Momma for almost 3 years, my personality is still developing.
3.  I love to roll in the grass when I go for walks.

4.  I didn't know how to play when I first got here
 but I am slowly learning.
5.  I am the first doxie in my family that's not a smooth hair.
6.  My favorite treat is baby carrots.
7.  I love strawberry ice cream!
8.  I tried to climb the counter when I first smelled popcorn.
9.  I toss my kibble out of my bowl until I see the bottom of the bowl, which drives my Daddy crazy.
10.  I drool like a water fall when I'm nervous.
11.  I get sick when I ride in the car.

Here are the 11 questions that Nola and her mom made up for me.  I think Nola's mom picked these questions to get to know us better so I let Momma answer too.  
My answers are in burgundy.
Her answers are in blue.
1.  Do you enjoy exercise and working out?  
I love going on my walks every day.
I wish I did but I hate being hot and sweaty.
2.  Favorite time of day (or night)?
Evening because Momma and Daddy are home with me.
Sunset / dusk
3.  What is your dream dog breed, 
even if you're not a good fit for them.
Dachshunds, so much that I would love to own a dachshund farm similar to the "herd of dachshunds" Sprint commercial.
4.  What is one of your favorite songs 
and/or favorite band/artist?
I don't really have a preference.  I do like it when
I see or hear doggies on TV though.
I am a huge fan of 80's hair bands and my favorite group from that time is Heart.  I would have to say my favorite 
male singer is The Red Rocker, 
Sammy Hagar....love the growl in his voice.  
My favorite female singer is Karen Carpenter...
she has such a beautiful, pure voice.
5.  Favorite book or book series?
The book I got from Wrigs, Angelo's Journey, was tasty.
My favorite book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
6.  Early bird or night owl?
I don't think I'm really either but I do love mornings because I get a spoon full of canned food.
I am definitely a night owl.  No question about it.
7.  How tall are you?
8.  "Damn" or "drat" (curse like a sailor or prim and proper)?
I tend to be more prim and proper unless I'm being ignored.
I am a mix of both.
9.  What's your style?
I'm good with whatever.
Jeans and t-shirts.
10.  Oceans or mountains?
I've never been to either but would probably like them both.
Ocean, definitely ocean.

11.  What's your favorite smell?
Vanilla or fruity scents.

I would like to pass this award on to the following bloggers:
I chose these bloggers because they are new furiends of mine and fairly new bloggers (I think).  If you don't know them, please stop by and visit.  Be sure to give them a terrific Blogville Welcome! 

My 11 questions for these bloggers are:
1. What is your favorite treat / chew?
2.  When did you start blogging and why?
3.  What is your favorite thing to do outside?
4.  Do you sleep in your own bed or someone elses?
5.  What kind of food do you eat?
6.  Kenneled when home alone or do you run the house?
7.  How did you end up with your person?
8.  What's your rudest habit?  
(For instance, I belch in Momma's face!)
9.  Do you prefer to be nekkid or clothed?
10.  Do you have a dental care routine?  
If you do, do you like it?
11.  What's your most embarrassing story?

I would love for any of my furiends to answer the questions above so I can learn more about you too!

All that work wore me out!
