Follow Up, Fitness, Fun


Hi Y’all!




I’ve got lots to tell y’all about today!




My fellow Chessies at Sand Springs presented me with the Sunshine Award on the first day of spring! 

First, I want to give them a special thank you! 

Second, I’m going to “smile”!!!


Well, it is hard to give y’all a big grin when I’m holding my birthday present in a 50 mph wind! 





Then ten things about myself…

1. I have allergies…I’ve been tested and get prescription allergy medicine (shots) from a supplier of human injectable meds. 

2. I love to swim, but can’t when the alligators are active.

3. My Human Papa thinks I’ll have to have the growth nipped off my lower lid. 

4. Whenever possible I get at least 4 outings a day with my Human. 

5. I have to have a shampoo with a special allergy shampoo that my Human gets from the vet.

6. I have 3 vets and a dentist. 

7. I get along with all dogs.  If a dog isn’t friendly I ignore him.

8. I get to spend most of the hot months in the mountains. 

9. I don’t like snow.  I won’t stay outside in it.

10. I have lots of beds! 



Now I need to pass some sunshine on to some of my Blogville friends…

Now I’m headin’ off for some more swimmin’!




Y’all come back now!

I will say this, MOM and I always see beautiful sunshine when we visit you. Yep you are at least one (probably more)of the suns rays. Thank you my friend.

  6. Wow Hawk what a big mouth you have in that one photo! Congrats on your award! Interesting facts - 3 vets?! Poor Hawk. Although it doesn't seem to keep you from enjoying life to the fullest. You made a good blog list there, only 2 I don't know of, so I'll pay a visit to them. Have a great weekend!

  14. Thank you so much for the award! It is great! We don't get snow but about every 5 years so it's not a problem that we have to worry about. None of us are fans of the cold so we probably would n't like snow either! It is always best not to swim when the gators are out! Gators we have but no snow! It's a southern thing! BOL!! Thanks again for our award!!

  15. Hawk! What a great life you lead! You are not spoiled at ALL! You look like a really happy brown dog.

  16. My what nice teeth you have! Were you yawning or just talking in that photo!! Love your birthday toy. Looks like fun!
