My story, faithful friend, happy companion – a dog.

The Thinking of You Award

This week seems to be the week for awards πŸ™‚

I am a lucky Tibbie and feel very validated this week. Thank you all.

My latest gift is the ‘Thinking of You’ award.

Isn’t that a nice one? Someone, somewhere is thinking of ME πŸ™‚

It’s a very pretty award too. Beloved loves pansies and talks about their pretty faces, I kid you not! I acknowledge their prettiness but think I should perhaps begin a sausage award. If only you could have scratch and smell on the computer but perhaps that would be too cruel.

On Saturday’s when Beloved takes me to the reserve I can smell the sausage sizzle but can’t get to it. I know!! How bad is that? Every Saturday it’s the same.

What is worse, my pal Roxie has to walk through the village to get to the dog park and she stops at the sausage sizzle on the way home. She did it once and they gave her a sausage. Gave it to her! Her owner didn’t buy it. Now she stops every time she passes and gets one. She’s been walking that road for years and never realised she could get a sausage before – doh!

I’ve tried to pull Beloved in that direction but she will not go even though it won’t cost her a thing. Sometimes Beloved is a little slow to understand, I love her but…..

Anyway, I digress.

Many thanks to my friends at Texas, A Cat in New York Β for this award. I really appreciate their thoughts, especially as they have had a sad time losing a pal recently and we have been thinking of them.

The Thinking of You Award would like me to tell you about seven things that I love and I think about daily. Here goes:

1. Breakfast

2. Walk

3. Sleep

4. Sausages

5. Lunch

6. Treats

7. Dinner

I realise that there is a theme here but I felt I needed to be honest!

Now, to pass this award on to seven other bloggers who I am thinking about and who haven’t received it (to the best of my knowledge):

1. Wanderlust – this is Beloved’s son so I am often thinking about him.

2. Ash – Beloved’s other son who I am always thinking about.

3. Clowie’s Corner – Who I am often thinking about – all that blonde fur πŸ™‚

4. Fostrickson – got to admire two dogs surviving with a cat called Odin.

5. Jasper’s Doggy World – Thinking of you in the rain today

6. Dakota’s Den – Dakota gets lots of cool things to test

7. Mollie & Alfie – they are running a great photo competition, I’m not trying to sway the judging, I don’t have a funny picture to send although Beloved hasn’t given up looking yet.

So those are my seven that I am thinking of today and hope you all have a good day.

Here, as in New Zealand with Jasper it is raining so no walk this morning. Having had breakfast all that is left to me is to nap.

Hmmm.. Did I leave some crumbs from breakfast?

    • You’re welcome and I’m sure it’s the first of many to come your way πŸ™‚

      August 17, 2012 at 10:03 pm

  3. Congrats Zac. Love the story of Roxie and her sausages! Shame Beloved can’t be persuaded that way πŸ˜‰

    • I will have to keep trying…. she could do with the exercise and I could do with the sausage BOL

  4. Congratulations Zac! And thank you very much. It sounds to me like you have the important things covered in what you think about daily. I really like the sound of a sausage award.

    • That’s why I like you Clowie – you get the sausage thing πŸ™‚

      August 17, 2012 at 10:02 pm

      • I entered a sausage catching competition once. I was useless because no one ever throws food for me, but I was more than willing to keep trying!

        August 17, 2012 at 10:07 pm

        • Cool!!!
          Where was that?
          Beloved is always restless, maybe I can get her to move. I’d love to take part. Though they would have to throw the sausage at my feet because I am not a Tibbie who is nimble, especially with my arthritis. The Princess is athletic and nimble though and she does not like sausages. She could be my retriever πŸ™‚

          • It was when we lived in England, a village nearby had a fun dog show. It was great fun.

            August 18, 2012 at 5:33 pm

            • And Beloved doesn’t want to live in England! Can’t think why? Our village has a cool farmers market once a month, if I could get there with Beloved I might find I could catch one or two things that fall on the floor πŸ™‚

  5. Congratulations on the very pretty award πŸ™‚

    August 17, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    • Thank you. I of course am a very masculine Tibbie but I have learnt to be in touch with my feminine side and appreciate the beauty in nature πŸ™‚

      August 18, 2012 at 8:51 am

  6. Congratulations! My word, I was surprised to see sausages on your list of things you love, especially after the first part of your blog πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    August 18, 2012 at 4:02 am

    • Sausages are my weakness and my desire.
      Sadly, Beloved is in control of my footsteps and my dinner bowl.
      I do not get to eat sausages which I think is very sad.
      It is a dream with me to have sausages on demand…… one day I hope to achieve this. Until then I keep on nudging Beloved towards the sausage sizzle stand and hope.
