Thanking and Thinking Thursday

A very nice award . . .

. . . from our friend Cotton.  Cotton posts at Cotton's Candy HERE.  Cotton created this beautiful badge for all his friends.  Here is what he said:

So the reason why I made this award is because everyone in Blogville has been kind and friendly towards me since I first go to know you'll. It is also to honor exactly half a year since joining Blogville. 

Please read the following points so you know what to do with it...

  • You may choose to pass it on to any number of friends. I understand some of you find this inconvenient, but if you wish to keep it without passing it on, I don't mind that as well. 
  • You may edit the logo to suit yourself, but please ensure it is still recognizable.
  • You may receive the award multiple times, the more the merrier. :)
  • It is optional if you wish to credit the person/animal that gave you the award, but I hope you do :D
Isn't Cotton such a nice guy?  Thank you for this beautiful badge, Cotton.  Cotton actually shared his award with 87 gazillion friends.  If you would like to add it to your collection of awards, then we want to share it with you because we agree with Cotton - Blogville residents are very kind and friendly towards us too. Enjoy.

On a sadder note, we had to say good-bye this week to a fellow Sibe - Rusty from The Thundering Herd.

Rusty had one of the best struts ever.  And he always marched to the beat of his own drum.  He had a way of making all of us smile with his fun-loving ways.

Rusty liked to play the role of a clown, but he was a sweet boy who taught all of us how to enjoy life.  We are sure he is keeping all our furries over the Rainbow Bridge quite entertained. Soft woos and gentle hugs to all of our pals at The Thundering Herd.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Sigh - we have lost so many buddies this year....if I had one wish to make - it would be that our furbabies could live as long as we do.

Oh, you guys, I am going to miss Rusty very much. For you who never got to know him, you might want to go to the Thundering Herd's blog and read some of the good stories the hu-Dad has written up about these dogs (past and present.) They are all well worth the read.
