Awards, Awards, Awards

   Welcome to the Pet Parade blog hop hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Jan’s Funny Farm, Love is being owned by a Husky and me!  It’s fun and easy to join the Parade.  Visit Rascal and Rocco to link up, then march on to more followers on social media along with being posted on Pinterest pages!  There are no rules cuz’ that’s just how we roll!  We love all pets whether they have fur, scales, or feathers so come on…everyone LOVES a Parade!
  We have some terrific pet blogging friends and always enjoy reading and meeting new friends.  Two of our blog buddies have been super nice and given us awards.  We are always so proud to accept awards and proudly display them on their very own page.  *see awards & recognition tab above*
  Most awards are given with the understanding that the recipient will bestow them on another great blog.  That is what we are doing today!  So, without further hesitation, here is Bentley and Pierre our Masters of Ceremonies.
"I just called first dibs on the shower!"
Bentley: “I love giving away awards!  I get to put on my tuxedo and make someone happy.  There is nothing better for a Basset Hound than making humans smile!  Pierre…where are you?  It’s awards time!”
"I think Bentley times this on purpose!"
Pierre: “Are you kidding me?  NOW???  I am not even dressed.  I think you timed this so that I couldn’t get my tux on for the ceremony.  That’s just wrong Bentley.  Go ahead; I’ll be ready in just a minute.”
Bentley: “While my co-host finds something to wear, let’s look at the awards that we will be giving out today.  Our first award is the Sunshine award.  Hey Mom, is this right?  Haven’t we given out the Sunshine award on two other occasions?”
Me: “It’s no mistake.  We have actually received this happy award three times!  How cool is that?  This time we received it from our Chesapeake friend, Hawkeye from Brown Dog CBR.  I have fallen in love with Chessies from Hawkeye and Sandspring Chesapeakes.  I’d never known any before last December.  They are fabulous dogs!”
Bentley: “They are really cool and can do some amazing tricks.  Don’t go getting any ideas about me doing all of that fancy retriever stuff.  I tend to be more of a receiver…like of treats and belly rubs, just saying!  The rules for the Sunshine award are easy.  All we have to do is thank the blog that gave it to us.  Thanks so very much Hawkeye aka BrownDogCBR!!  You guys rock!  What’s the other award?
Me: “It is from Pawedblog.  Carrie was one of the first bloggers that we met when we began our journey into Barking from the Bayou.  She has an adorable Westie and she is opening a doggie couture fashion business.  I can’t wait to see what great fashions that she comes up with for dogs.  Pierre will look so cute in Westie inspired clothes!  Speaking of Pierre, what is taking him so long?”
"Now, I'm fabulous!"
Pierre: “Sorry, Bentley hogged the shower so I was running behind schedule.  It takes me some time to style my hair.  I can’t very well come out in a towel with my hair in disarray!  I’m perfect now so let’s proceed.  *ahem* Our next award is the Yoo Hoo~Yoo Hoo award from Pawedblog.  It reminds me of that great Disney movie “Up” because it is a bouquet of colorful balloons.  It has a couple of rules that we need to follow.  The first thing is to thank the person that awarded us and proudly post it on our blog.  Thanks so much Miss Carrie and Pawedblog!  Gramma has it displayed on our awards page.”
Bentley: “Cool, cool, the second thing is to visit three other recipients and leave a comment.  We are visiting Fozziemum, Willand Eko~Marking our Territory, and Easy Boy.  All three of these are new blogs to us and we really are glad to find them.  The next thing is to tell everyone three things that we are thankful for, that is easy peasy!  Treats, bones, and walks.”
Me: “Hold on Bentley.  I think that we can do better than that, although those are all good things.  We are thankful for Blogpaws and all of their support, all of the great companies that have sent us awesome products to review, and our readers.  All three of those help to make our blog so much better!”
Pierre: “I think all of the things that y’all listed are reasons to be thankful.  The last thing to do with the YooHoo~YooHoo award is to give it to seven other bloggers.  I am so hyped about choosing who gets this beautiful award.  We also get to pick out ten blogs for the Sunshine Award!  That is a bunch of awarding!”
Bentley: “May I have the envelope to announce our friends that will receive the Sunshine award?  These ten blogs bring smiles and sunshine into our days.  Pierre, tap your paws against the coffee table really fast so it sounds like a drumroll.”
Pierre taps madly on coffee table and makes a drum sound with his mouth.
Bentley: And our Sunshine blogs are:
#1~ BZ Dogs
#3~ LapDog Creations                            
#4~ Glogirly
Pierre: “Congratulations to all of these great bloggers and their pets!  Now, it is
finally my turn to hand out the YooHoo~YooHoo award!  Yah Hoo!  I want to say thanks so much again to Pawedblog for giving us this award.  We love it!  The blogs that will receive it from us are:
#1~ TalkingDogs

#2~ Life with Dogs & Cats                           
#3~ Traveling Cats                                    
#4~ PAWsome Cats
Me: “Way to go boys!  Y’all did a really professional job today.  I am sure that Ellen will be calling you to help her co-host the next award show that she MC’s.  To all of our blog-tastic award recipients; please accept it with our congratulations, friendship, and admiration!”

Please join us as we do the Pet Parade hop!
