Since we have seen this award at several blogs already, we are just going to offer it to any of you who would like to have it.

This second honor came from little Gizmo. Thanks, Gizmo, we love you.

The rules:

1. Post it to the blog and link to who gave it to you.
2. List seven things you love.
3. List seven blogs you love.
4. Comment on those blogs and let them know you’ve given them the award.

Seven things we love:

1. Going for walks with Mom

2. Playing with our toys

3. Visiting our friends' blogs

4. Snow, if we could just get a decent amount one of these years

5. Yummy treats

6. Finding new friends at new blogs

7. Everyone in our family

Seven blogs we love? - That is way too hard to narrow down to just seven. We love all of you so please accept this award from the OP Pack as yours.

The last award came to us from the very lovely Ginger Jasper and his Mum. Thank you both very much.

Here is what GJ and his Mum had to say about why they created this beautiful award:

We really didn't expect to become part of a wonderful community of friends. That is what it now feels like. It feels like we are meeting every day with lots of lovely friends. Friends who are there to listen if we have a moan, to laugh when we post something silly. To sympathize if we are down. To come to each others aid if one of us needs help. The list goes on and on. All of it good. I am so glad we joined blogger.

Isn't is just the prettiest certificate you have ever seen? Please click on it to bigify it and see all the lovely details. Their words express so well exactly the way we feel about blogging. We just love it and we want all of you to have it too. So please feel free to add it to your blog.

We are pretty sure we received another award recently from one of our readers, but our secretary Mom forgot to write it down on the notepad we gave her to keep track of these things. We cannot remember who the wonderful giver was, so please forgive us for not posting about it. If it is you, please don't hesitate to jog our memories because we really want to tell everyone about it.

A post is really never complete without a photo of at least one of us. Today will be a day for Dakota. She is recovering today from another one of her seizures last night, another bad one. She has been pretty anxious since last night. Mom put one of her quilts outside on the deck in the sun to see if she would lie down and relax.

Please keep thinking good thoughts for the Princess.

Woos, the OP Pack

You know what I think would help Dakota? A picnic basket full of steak. I mean, she's already lying on the blanket, just waiting for the picnic to start.


PS. If Dakota doesn't want all the steak, I can come over and picnic with her.

Byron y Xinver said...

our secretary Mom........ You are very clever indeed...
We hope Dakota feels OK now. If she suffers from seizures she needs traquility.
