Another Award! Oh What Fun!


Hi Y’all!

I can’t tell you how excited I am!  Wait ‘til the Humans see that while they ignored me, I got another Award!  Whoopee! 


This Award came from C and H along with Carla, a beautiful Great Dane, who is my age and Jonquil…no not the flower, the guide dog puppy in training.  Their blog is called Growing a Guide Dog.

We really, really appreciate your thinking of us and forwarding this “dearest” (ie. liebster) award to us.  Thank you again.

This Award is given to help promote growing and young blogs.

In order to accept the award we must do the following:
1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave us the award.
3. Pick our five favorite blogs, with less than 200 followers and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.

Limiting my choice to five favorites with less than 200 followers was a challenge.  With great difficulty I narrowed my selection to the following five:

Boondocks and the Love Shack Pack is an entertaining blog with an expanding number of Golden rescues and along with 4 growing kids in addition to parents.  The dogs and people do therapy work at various facilities.  Y’all have to stop and meet them.

Life with Desmond is about a beautiful mixed breed dog that was rescued from a kill shelter when he was only one year old.  His human is learning to train dogs…she says right now Desmond is in charge. Winking smile

Y’all know how impressed I am with service dogs, especially guide dogs who safely lead blind people through the everyday chores of their lives.  Their training begins almost before birth and definitely immediately after birth.  Then at weaning time they go to a “puppy raiser” or just “raiser”.  This wonderful raiser gets to potty train and expose the pup to all the things they could encounter once they graduate from advanced training and are responsible for a person’s life.  What an awesome responsibility, don’t you agree.  About 18 months later, they turn the obedient, house broken pup in for training (IFT) and usually start all over again with an 8 week old pup and the poop bags. Winking smile

C and H from Growing a Guide dog, which gave us this award, are just such dedicated raisers.  Thus it is only fitting that this award also go to other raisers. 

Puppy Raising with Monte and Me is just such a blog.  You learn lots of things about how to expose a youngster to everyday distractions and lots more.  The Guide Dog programs have training classes and standards that the raisers follow.

Patrick the IV the Stories of a CCI puppy is also known as Raising Patrick in College and puppy in a pickle.  Y’all really must visit this blog!  This determined pup and its raiser are both going to school!  The raiser is both a student and a teacher. 

Finally we have a CCI puppy raiser who is a senior in high school.  Right now it is a bittersweet time as the pup Heidi goes off to a new home.  However, in January she will be receiving a new puppy to train.  The blog is titled One Puppy…One Vest…Loads of Adventures.  This is their second Leibster Award.  They also got one on December 10…They are really great reading and these pups have some great adventures! 


Y’all come back now!
