Thanks for all the Awards!!

Hope that everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving day!  Although I spent the majority of it in bed with a miserable chest cold, I got up long enough to enjoy some turkey, stuffing & pumpkin pie!  I should be thankful, actually, as this is the first time in 2 years I've been sick, plus Brutus turned out to be a much better snuggler over the course of 36 hours than I ever would have guessed!

Without further ado, let me get on to posting some fantastic awards we've been given over the past few days:

From our new schnauzer pals Nellie & Calvert as well as our good buddy Dory:

From the lovely (& not to mention sassy) Sasha:

And from our pug pal all the way over in Norway, Bajas:

There would be so many of you to pass these along to, I wouldn't know where to start!  I wanted to post the awards to show our gratitude to those who thought so kindly to bestow them, but I'm afraid I have to keep this short today.   Please feel free to help yourself to any of our fabulous awards!

We awoke this morning to a surprise: the first snow of the season here in Ohio.  I must wrap up this post quickly, as Brutus and I have our big agility debut in a few hours, and need to still get a walk in to settle him down before we go!  I'll leave you with some quick photos of Brutus out in the snowflakes for the first time (he was still itty-bitty last year and seems to be taking them in as a whole new experience!)

You say I saw this stuff last year, mom?  Really?  I don't like it...

I think the sky is falling - I'm going back inside!!

Wish us luck - we'll be jumping, tunneling and climbing until you hear from us again!!

Oh, sorry to hear you've been sick! That's no fun. But we can be very good snugglers when you're not feeling well.

We've never been in the snow. Can't imagine what that would be like. Run back inside Brutus, RUN!!

Good luck today. They should give you an award for just being handsome!

Hiya Brutus - we're glad your mom is better now, pup snuggles are the best medicine aren't they?! Hey, well done on all those awards - very well deserved. And snow - wow! We don't think we've ever seen any, we wonder if we'll like it....? Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Joe Stains said...

congrats on your award! Mom is sick too, even my snuggling isn't making her feel better. She might have to go to that dogter.

Oskar said...

My mom person & I don't really like snow. My mom person says it should snow about December 23rd and be gone by New Year!

I'm glad you took good care of your mom person & I'm glad she's feeling better!
