Many thanks to I Still Want More Puppies for this award. Bella says she licks everything to identify it (including a goose), and feels a kinship with any dog who will lick a mop. That’s pretty funny, and maybe a bit strange.
So, you ask, why is there a “strange” award? Pretty strange, huh? Well, I found out that there’s a book by Cate Gardner coming out in October with the same name as the award (Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits)! AND she has a contest where you might win an award! And not just the Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits award. Exciting, isn’t it? You can check it out here: Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits. I wonder if Mom will read it to me?
Anyway, now I get to share the award with some of my blogging friends (and strangers – strangers are always allowed) by nominating their blogs. I decided to go on a word quest so I could see what other words were like strange. I asked Mom “What is a synonym?” (pretty big word for a 9-month old puppy, don’t you think?) She said it’s another way of saying a particular word. Did you know strange can be “remarkable”, “exceptional”, “fantastic”, “wonderful”, “extraordinary”, “astonishing”, “mystifying”? That’s how I think of the word, anyhow. Just so you know…..
These are the “rules” (that means, what you’ve gotta do after you get the award):
- Add the logo of the award to your post.
- Include a link to the person (or dog) who gave the award to you. Ta-dah….drumroll, please: I Still Want More Puppies!
- Nominate seven blogs that are also exceptional, and explain why the recipient deserves the award. (I have so many blog friends that I think are exceptional and remarkable, that this is going to be HARD). I wish I could nominate everyone, but you might get tired and go to sleep reading this post! I think I’ll just close my eyes and put my paw on some. Mom can tell me who they are:
Murphy’s Law–for sharing his food bowl with the kitties–that’s astonishing!
Purrrrsonal Thoughts by Lu-Lu & Lucius–for giving Mom and me a good laugh! Lu-Lu is fantastic!.
Mellow Yellow-Musings of Ivy, The Yellow Lab–for advocating adoption of senior dogs–that’s exceptional!
BCxFour–for listing some odd combinations–here’s another one for you guys: baked bean and catsup sandwiches. Now, that’s a bit strange…….
Bandit-Our Mini Australian Shepherd–for being so darn cute! I think that’s remarkable.
Oh, there’s one last thing I need to do. Notify the recipient’s of their award! I hope they like it!
