Award Monday


Hi Y’all!

Had a wonderful Sunday!  Hope y’all did too! 

Much to my surprise I received a Stylish Blog Award from the awesome Paw Print City Times (here).  I am so honored to receive this Award.  I am speechless! 


 In keeping with the “Spirit of the Award”, in addition to thanking the blogger who bestowed it upon you, Paw City Times (here), I need to share 7 things about myself and share the Award with 15 other blog sites and let them know. 

I’m so pleased to be able to share this fine award with 15 sites!  I’m going to do that first!  Then if y’all are still around you can read some more stuff about me.  OK?

Please note, that the blog titles are in no particular order.  I enjoy all of them and hope y’all will too.

Now to share 7 things about myself. 

First, I’m not a service dog and can’t go lots of places with my Humans where I could be helpful, I’m sure. 

Second, I help my Humans by carrying things for them.

Third, I help my Human to get up when she stoops or kneels, like when she has to get something from a lower cabinet shelf.  I keep an eye on her and move beside her and stand so she can lean on my withers to help get back up. 

Forth, I pick things up for my Humans.  For instance if she drops a piece of laundry while carrying it to the washer, I pick it up and follow.  Also if one of the Humans drop something, I will pick it up and hand it to them.

Fifth, every morning at the same time, I wake my Human by shaking my head and making my ears slap.  If that fails I put my cold (should I say icy?) nose on her arm, which is usually partially uncovered. 

Sixth, I hand her, one by one, each of her bedroom slippers.  That way she doesn’t have to slide down out of the bed onto the cold wood floors and feel around for her slippers in the dark.

Seventh, sometimes I can’t resist giving a slipper a short romp around the bedroom before handing it over. 

To keep y’alls spirits up, I promise spring is heading your way!  The Bartlett Pear trees are blooming! This picture was taken yesterday evening.




This next picture was taken this evening.

Although I’m not sure when spring will arrive in Colorado and the other Rocky Mountain states.

And those of you who have sent me pictures of y’alls snow up to the second floor windows (how do y’all get out of your house?), I’m not sure y’all ever get summer.  Maybe y’all only get spring and then go right back to winter. 

And now let me say to sweet Penny the Jack Russell dog (here) in the UK, yes spring is coming there soon!  I’m positive!

  6. Congrats on your award and thank you SOOO much for sharing it with us! We've gotten a few awards over the last week or so, so I'm going to compile them all into one post sometime in the near future.

    Guess what? It's 79 degrees here today!! Spring is definitely coming! Of course, it's going to thunderstorm this afternoon and evening (I guess due to the changes in the air pressure)...bummer. Oh well, we'll enjoy the weather while we can!

  10. Congrats on the award!
    Have a nice week!

  11. Congrats on your award! I enjoyed learning more about you. :)

  12. Way to go, Hawk! Congrats!

    I had no idea that you were so helpful to your humans. My K does a lot of the same things that you do, picking things up when I drop them and standing next to me when I need to get up. R takes responsibility for taking the slippers for a romp (but he sometimes "forgets" to bring them back)!

  13. Congratulation Hawk! You sure do deserve it! (PS - I am competely and totally enamored by your pear tree. Gorgeous in the spring and we adore eating fresh pears!)

  14. Hawk! We're so touched! Thank you so much. And we really enjoyed getting to know more about you -- you non-service-dog service dog! Spring is slow to come to Southern California. Actually this is usually our coldest, rainiest part of the year. But we don't mind as it keeps things greener longer. Again, thanks. We'll post in the next couple of days!

  15. Thanks so much for the award and for thinking of us! That last picture with the snow tree I was envious because I thought it was a tree blooming with flowers, but when I realized it was just snow I wasn't that envious anymore.

  16. Congratulations on your award, woof :-)
