We Got Awardified!

We are so thrilled and surprised that Phantom, TD and Ciara recognized us with the Stylish Blogger Award!  OMD! Was it our bandannas?  Our collars? Our Lazer Eyes which Miss Honeybuzz tells us, "can spot squirrels high in trees and beam them into outer space!!"  Who Knew? Thank you, Woos.  We like to be stylish and we really don't like squirrels, especially when they play tag in our trees.  

We did really like this stylish fellow we met last summer walking in our canyon.  We liked how he recognized the artful placement of the stones by an anonymous walker, and then accessorized it with himself.  

It really is all about the accessories.

Part of this Awardification process is that we're supposed to tell you some things about ourselves.  Well, let's see...

Ruby weighs about 30 pounds less than the boys, so Mom calls her our "Teacup Rottweiler."  Also, Ruby sort of obsessively gives kisses, so we say that "she can't hold her licker."

Bart and Gizmo are litter mates. As puppies they were extraordinarily destructive.  Juno ain't got nothin' on these boys.  Danskos, schmanscos...eye glasses, pillows, Danskos, furniture,  their dad's Harley seat, pretty much you name it, the list goes on and on. But then they turned 2 and, again, MAGIC!!  Good dogs!  

Most importantly, above everything else, we want you to know that we are sweet, affectionate, loving, sensitive, funny, cuddly and very friendly dogs.  And Mom always feels very safe walking with us :-)

We also want to share this award with other bloggers.  First, Miss Creekhiker who got mom looking at all your bloggies in the first place.  She is a wonderful writer, bead maker and mom to our fureind Miss Mabel Lou.  

Second, Da Weenies of Florida who are new to Blogville like us.  We think Amber da'weenie is pretty funny and a very stylish girl.  She has a very handsome brother named Max.

Another Pack new to Blogville are the Black Dogs. The black dogs are jumping in with all 12 paws and have already declared themselves pawticipants in Mango Minster 2011!!   

And finally, Huffel Mawson, a kitteh from OZ whose mom used to have a rottie dog whom she loved very much. That special rottie went to the bridge very young and Huffel's mom still misses her.  Also, Huffel's mom's birthday is the same day as the boys'!!  How cool is that??  We think Huffel is a very stylish kitteh!!

Thank you again, Woos!

P.S.  While we did not know The Luke well, he clearly was loved by many in Blogville.  We know The Mom's heart is aching with his loss, but he was so lucky to have his time with her.  I'm sure Princess Allie greeted him warmly.

You are most welcome. We loved learning some new things about all of you. That kissing stuff must be a girl thing because Ciara the Pest is quite the smoocher here. Dakota and Phantom were quite the destructive duo in their younger days too.

We will have to go meet your new black dog friends. Nice sharing of the award. Huffle is another of our special furiends.

I'm glad that you all had some wonderful two year olds instead of the Terrible Twos! Keep your paws crossed that when Ava turns two she stops being the little terror that she's been lately...

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Congratulations on your first award! Abby is also a super licker, so maybe it is a girl thing. Maybe Ruby can hook up with Calhoun. He's a teacup mastiff :) Bet she'd like him, and v.v. Of course, it's good Ruby has two big brothers to look out for her. Be sure Calhoun gets the nice photo of Bart & Gizmo, too, just so he knows to be on his super best behavior.

Big congrats on your award. You are the right guys who deserve such a stylish award.

You know what? I like what you said in your post "we want you to know that we are sweet, affectionate, loving, sensitive, funny, cuddly and very friendly dogs. And Mom always feels very safe walking with us :-)"

It is exactly how I felt when Laura was with us. It is a big shame that so many people don't know or misunderstand the beauty of your breed and what you said is so true!!!

Btw, you look great with the bandanana!!!

Lovely post- and congrats on your award! So I suppose the chewing thing is a Rottie thing. Raven used to chew anything - and lick anything. She'd try anything - screws, nails, pennies, you name it. Miss her just the same, though. Glad to have beautiful Rotties to visit ;)

Um, i'm lovin' those accessories and I totally dig "she can't hold her licker!" hilarious... BUT, i have to say, did those boys eat blue tape? what about books, a yoga matt, bills/mail, (yes Juno also ate sunglasses, plenty of them in fact), but what about a MINI COOPER... did your boys eat a MINI COOPER? Like A REAL Mini COOPER car... like in 10 minutes the inside was destroyed. don't believe me? just go to (the mini story is in there too) oh and she also ate my passport. ya, that was embarassing. more so than the mini cooper.

and the worst part? she's now 3.5 years old. She hasn't grown out of it. sigh... i'm so glad she never knew your boys tho. we'd be the parents who'd always be telling them "stay away from those boys" or "that girl" and "she/they are bad news!"

i've known a lot of rotties... every single one of them the cutest sweetest things ever. even the ones in the protection sport club i went to, those dogs were soooooo SWEET. so kind. i never felt one ounce of fear around them. and i love when they prance... cuz they look like this boxy dog and then this silly little happy prance... so cute.

ok i still think we have the title on masticatory badness. :-P But it's nice to know you suffered, at least for 2 years. i'm suffering for her lifetime!
