Awards and Reunions

   Happy Thoughtless Thursday everyone!  This is a great hop where you can post on a hodgepodge of topics.  My friends Love is Being Owned by a Husky and Ruckus the Eskie host it.  Their advice on this hop is “Don’t think, just link!”
   I must start this post off with a very thoughtful event.  On Tuesday, Jenna of Love is Being Owned by a Husky presented me with three awards!  I know, right?!  I was so excited!  They are the first blogging awards I’ve received.  She presented me with the Liebster Award, an award of Excellence and the Best Blog Around the World award!  How exciting is that?  I have proudly displayed them on my sidebar.  I will be passing them on to other bloggers in a few days.  I have been so busy nominating blogs for the Nose-to-Nose awards that I will need to go back through and select some for these awesome awards! 



   Thank you from the bottom of my heart for these incredible honors, Jenna.  It means so much to me.  Everyone be sure and visit her blog.  She has three hilarious Huskies and since she has already received these awards, I can tell you her blog is awesome.  http://ownedbyahusky.blogspot.com/

   Earlier this week I wrote a post about my daughter, Jessica and her new husband, Keith coming for a visit.  We have been keeping Pierre, her Westie with us since last June.  He and Bentley have become best buds!  When they arrived, Pierre was so excited to see everyone.  I took him out front on his leash so Bentley wouldn’t knock him over to get some kisses of his own.  I don’t really think that it dawned on him that it was his mama.  He is always so hyped whenever we have company.  He was just kissing and greeting my daughter, my son –in-law, and my son.  
   Once we came inside, Jessica sat on the couch and Pierre jumped in her lap.  It was at that moment he discovered it was his MAMA!!!  He went completely nuts.  He jumped on her head, laid down on her, jumped back up for a million rapid-fire Westie kisses, and his tail was spinning like a helicopter propeller!  It was such a wonderful reunion.
   He loves Mom and Dad and stays beside them constantly.  He sleeps on them, performs all of his tricks, and is even happier than usual.  That is not an easy thing since he is the happiest dog that I know!
   Bentley was thrilled to have his sister back home.  He loves her husband and not because he gives great belly scratches.  He does, but he also loves dogs!  Bentley throws himself belly up every chance he gets.  They became great friends in a matter of minutes.
   I’m still working on the YouTube videos but I hope to have the reunion posted soon.  Until then, I have a photo of my daughter, Jessica and Pierre.


Thanks for stopping by for Thoughtless Thursday.  
Enjoy hopping to these other great blogs and have a great day!

  2. Thanks for the reunion update, we were wondering. Poor guy will be sad when they leave again but it won't be forever, although to a dog it may seem that way.

    1. We are having a wonderful time. Pierre is ALWAYS on one of their laps. I think he believes if he stays on them, they can't leave again!

  5. Congratulations on your major awards! And what a cute Westie. That's a breed we're considering for our next dog, as the Hunny wants a lap dog. Good to know they're so affectionate. :)
