Tag Tag TAG

First of all, the Army of Four and Harry and Cassidy both gave us the FUNKY BLOG AWARD! I thought Tanner smells funky a lot, but Mom said this is a good Funky.

blog award

THANK YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

I know that we also got some other awards but my lazy and absent minded Mom cannot remember from who. I tell ya, she might end up fired if she doesn't watch it. I hear the whippets are looking for a new editor too, we might be able to get a two for one deal.

Anyway, Mitch and Maggie tagged us for a fun post about being creative.

Here is the challenge:

I'm challenging bloggers to make something, anything, and post about it. Let's see what you creative people come up with! Here are the rules:

1. Make something, anything. It doesn't have to be complicated or artsy. Make a list, take an interesting picture, make some one's day, make dinner, make a doodle, make fun of yourself, make a poem, make your bed (OK, that last one is lame).
2. Write a blog about it. With pictures for extra brownie points.
3. Link to this blog and challenge six other bloggers to do the same.

You know what I am going to make, I am going to make a post of some of my favorite photos from this blog. I have been doing a lot of reminiscing with my birthday coming up and we are also fast approaching my 500th blog post!! So I thought I would go back and share some of my most favorite photos with you guys!

Tom, Joey and Lobo
This is one of the oldest photos of me in existence. That handsome Samoyed is my older brother Lobo. He went over the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago, I sure do miss him. I am only about a year old in this photo!!!

So cute
That is me and my Dad in our old apartment, BEFORE TANNER.

Back to school!
That was me all packed and ready to go to my Grandparent's house! Mom just loves this photo!

My cowboy pig
This is me and my best friend in the whole world, Cowboy Pig.

Man am I handsome!

I LOVE THIS PHOTO. This is me at our old apartment. We had this cool table that I would stand on and I would be able to see ALL THAT STUFF!! I would yell at cats, people (his own shadow - Mom) and protect my humans.

Finally, this is me and Mom. I guess she is ok as far as editors go, even though she ate dinner before she let me blog tonight.

You know who I am going to tag... TANNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stay tuned for his favorite photos tomorrow!!!

Joey! That photo of you with the backpack on is so cute, but I'm not convinced you are happy. I bet you miss Cowboy Pig. Can he sleep at the very bottom of your sleeping back so your wee little toes can tickle him at least? Tanner would never need to know about it.


p.s. Sorry, I'm posting under someone else's name. Some one who left me home alone all day today!

I think your Mum's favourite photo of you with the back pack is mine and Jeannie's too.

They are all very good though, especially the one with Cowboy Pig.

In answer to your Dad's whisky query on my blog - here goes:

The above is a very good website (you may already have visited it of course!) but it gives plenty of info.

My pawrents are not so keen on the peaty malts, they take a bit of getting used to apparently.

Jeannie asks if you get an antiseptic liquid in the States called "T.C.P." because she reckons that is what Laphroiag tastes like!

Ardbeg, well that one is kinda similar, being another peaty malt.

Totally different from Highland Park and Bowmore, in their opinion, these are not so overpowering; in fact Highland Park is one of their favourites.

They visited the Distillery on The Orkneys a few years back, when they got to the top of the hill where it was, it was a Saturday and it was closed!!!!

This is another good website to take a peek into - Jeannie says there are so many malts, you can never get fed up trying to find a new one!

Hope this has been a help to your Dad!

love and whisky licks, Marvin xxxxx

Hey, thanks for sharing all those great pictures with us! I didn't know you had non-Boston brother last time...Your mom's really pretty, This is the 1st time I get to see your mom's face.

Love licks,

My editor has just re read my comments about the whisky - she says to tell you that the Highland Park and the Bowmore are not "totally different" that kinda reads wrong.

What she meant to bark at me when I was pawing this stuff in, was that Highland Park and Bowmore, are more pleasantly peaty, but not so really peaty as the Ardbeg and the Laphroaig. Laphroaig is an acquired taste which she has not, in many years, ever acquired!!

Now back to dog blogging, Jeannie, we want no more of this whisky barking!

Joe, man you are handsome and so was your brother Lobo! Those are some great pictures...I especially love the knappysack shot. You look like you are going to school! Can't wait to see Tanner's list.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Great choices Joe...I remember the one with your cool backpack, but some of the others are new. Lots of us are ticked off at our editors and sec'y...but I don't think we should trade. You could end up with Teka for a sister!

Joey - you're quite the card, I tell ya. You make my human laugh all the time. You're giving her ideas - she's going to make me carry her knapsack, I just know it.

Thanks for the tip, Joe Staines.. we've been searching on Craig's list. We made our own ad:
Servant up for grabs. Kinda flighty, prone to episodes of idiocy. Pretty good cook, slow walker. Forgets to go to dog shows and fun stuff, but if you want a servant who sits around and works while you sleep, this one's for you.

Think it'll work?

joey has the best "surprised" look. Bentley looks like that sometimes when he gets the crazy in him, and they call it a "joey" look.

You sure are handsome Joey! Does making a mess count? I know a dog who is real good at that.
