Awards For Me?

I could not believe my eyes when I read Henry's blog this morning. His blog is the first one I read every morning when I log on to my computer and he makes me laugh every single day.

Henry is very popular in the blogging community and I'm not just talking about with the dogs. He has so many fans that I don't know how he keeps up with everything. He has received many awards, but he is not the type to pass things on and I completely respect that. But yesterday was different. He received two awards and passed them on to all his doggy pals. Since I am one of his pals, I received the awards. Not only that, I was first on the list of doggy pals and Henry said "Stubby’s a real ‘eco warrior’ and very good pal." OMG! I am so honored to receive these awards, but even more so because they came from my good pal Henry who kind words made Mom cry.

Now for the awards. I would like to thank the Academy for recognizing my work throughout the year - no, no, no. Not that kind of award. Even better than that. The first one is the Premio Dardos Award. Premio Dardos means 'prize darts' in Spanish and the award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. Whew! What a mouthful! I can't believe that I would ever be given an award like this. Mom always tells me that I'm a good writer, but I guess I never believed her until now. This award is a lot to live up to, but I will do my best to keep doing what I've been doing and maybe even turn it up a notch.

The second award is the coffee cup award and this is awarded to blogs that one couldn't miss each morning. I don't even drink coffee and I don't think Henry does either, but that's not the point of this award. I am humbled to think that my good buddy Henry wakes up to my blog each day. He sees my smiling pug face and reads about eco issues (or about me), to start his day off with a bang.

Now for the hard part. I need to pass these awards along. I am not as popular as Henry, nor do I have as many doggy pals, but I do have a few pals I would like to pass these awards on to.

Pearl - I sometimes call Pearl my girlfriend because she is just the sweetest thing. I love reading about her antics and her shartwork can't be beat. She is a free spirit who lives life to the fullest.

Salinger - I have not officially added this guy to my blogroll, but that's only because I can't remember to after I read his blog. This guy cracks me up! Mom says that he has the deepest frown she has ever seen on a pug and I think she is secretly in love with him.

Pugsley - This is another blog I am not officially following, but I visit his blog every single day. This guy gets to do such cool stuff like go to work and visit the dog bakery. He is very handsome, just like me, so Mom likes him.
