Hello, My Dear Furry and Non-Furry Friends,
The other day kousin Asta gave me this prestigious award. I was deeply honored and overwhelmed, since I do not consider myself to be much of a thinker. So Thank You, Asta. I appreciate it.
One of the things that I have learned as I grow older is that I will never be a majestic Airedale like Stanley, and Maggie, and Mitch, and Harry, and Putter, and Sunshine, and Bogart, and Noah, and Hercules, and others, but I can at least be a majestic Airehead!
And now the rules for the Thinking Award are ..
1. You must write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
Five blogs that make me think, in alphabetical order, are:
a creek runs through it
This is by my friend Ellie Creek, who teaches music to 350 reluctant students in Montana. Her blog is filled with
beautiful photos and artwork. I also enjoy reading what she has to say, even though she is a human and not a dog.
Agatha and Archie
These two wire fox terriers know all of the best spots not only in Boston, but in all of New England. I love
seeing their fabulous photos of their adventures throughout the city. I also like Agatha's bomb shelter. She is way ahead
of her time. I think we all need one for our toys and favorite items. These things must be kept safe.
Bob T Bear
Bob is a bear who lives in the United Kingdom. His writing is, shall we say, unusual. He makes me think every time I read
his blog just to understand what he is saying, and what he is saying is excellent! And, writing the way he does must be
very difficult. I still don't know what those numbers are at the top of his blog.
Patience, another person, is an honorary dog, in my opinion. Her stories of her life with nine whippets are spellbinding.
She will make you laugh and she will make you cry. Whatever the case, she is always fun to read.
Scruffy, Lacie, and BabyStan
These guys always make me think. They are a challenge for me to keep up with. I never know what Scruffy, Lacie, and
now BabyStan are going to do next, and as Scruffy's girfriend, I have to be on my toes at all times. They keep me sharp
and alert. I can just imagine what they do to poor Mumsie.
So, there you have it. These are the five that I am passing the Thinking Award on to.
Next, we have to
2. Acknowledge this post. (I already did this.)
3. Optional: Proudly display the Thinking Blogger Award with a link to the post that you wrote. (I did this, too.)
4. Go tell your humans to fork over the treats! (This one's a no brainer.)
My humans are really good at giving me treats. I have them well trained.
