Our first blog award!!!

Quizz over at Cre8vekaos’s Universe gifted us with this blogging award, our first!


Here’s the description of the award, and the rules:

 “The award states that “This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time, and relationships!”

 In other words, “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

So, without further ado, here are my 8 nominations:

  1. Daisy the Dog – white pit bulls are the best!
  2. Dolittler – a highly informative blog from a practicing vet
  3. Dog Star Daily/The Dog Blog – great dog blog with lots of contributing writers
  4. Pit Bull Patriarchy – a new blog, I think it’s going to be in your face and hard-hitting
  5. Service Dog Sawyer – written by Sawyer with the aid of his dad
  6. Three Woofs and a Woo – they’re not pit bulls, but they’re fiesty and fun!
  7. BAD RAP Blog – one of the most amazing pit bull rescues in the country
  8. Vet on the Edge – the trials and tribulations of being a vet in Alaska

Total Brag

Well, it only took 3 1/2 years, but we have done it – we took a 20 minute walk…wait for it….

ON ONLY INARA’S FLAT COLLAR!!! No training collar of any kind – just her flat collar! I only had to use the leash once to restrain her and that’s because a squirrel darted in front of us about 15′ away, and then dashed up a tree and sat on a low branch talking smack to Inara. She wanted that squirrel, but I convinced her to sit and look at me instead. 

We stayed in the comfort zone of our street, and all the dogs/kids/people that were out and about were a good distance away. But you know what? I don’t care! We took a walk with just a regular collar!  I am totally doing the happy dance right now!
