Awards and Announcement

Sweet Ariel gave us this wonderful award while our Dare was still going on - so now we finally post about it!
She and her Mom created it!!! Isn't that awesome! They call it the "You Lift My Spirit Award".

" It is given to anyone or anyone who's blog has made you smile, laugh or lifted your spirit.
Please link back to the person who gave it to you. Limit 5 picks... "
We are very honored to be among the very first recipients of this great award, we feel that if we can lift the spirit of just one cat, or make just one dog laugh, or put a smile on a human's or other
animal's face - we have done our job!!!! Thank you Ariel, very very much!
Now we will pick

Ariel Yes, we will have to give it back because that crazy cat pretty much makes us laugh every time we go there and see what she is doing with herself!

Yao-Lin I don't think this pick needs any explanation! He is hilarious!

Moki Talk about lifting ones spirit! What an awesome little fighter he is.

Daisy We'd say she probably lifts all our spirits, every Sunday again, with her wonderful Sunday Comics. And then some!

Miss Peach What a wonderful and uplifting spirit this little cat is! Her blog sometimes feels like a resort, a refuge, a place to take a rest and let the spirit soar.

Be assured, there are so many more who lift our spirit, make us smile, make us laugh - but A
riel limited the pick to five, probably knowing that it would get totally out of hand otherwise, hahahahahahahahahahaha! So for once we will follow the rules......

And our good friend Charlie gave us these awards:

They come with rules too
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog

2. Link the person you received your award from

3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs

4. Put links of those blogs on yours, and

5. Leave a message on the blogs that you've nominated

So now we can nominate 7 more blogs for awards!!!!
We give them to:

Opus and Roscoe
Karen Jo
Shade and Goldie
Eric and Flynn

Here is the announcement:
Before we will reveal the winner of our last Dare next week, we will hold an honorary Dare in
Texas name. He went to the bridge today and this will be his, and his Mom's, Dare.
Please come back on Friday to accept the challenge!
