My 100 - and thinking awards

Well mistress and her blogging pals have been writing 100 things about themselves on their own totally uninteresting blogs.

Now how dogotistical (you mean egotistical Pippa) is that?

But not to be outdone I wanted to do it too, and Misery Mistress said I couldn't possibly think of 100 things about me. Well I can.

I like buttered toast x 49
I like chasing cats x 49
I do snoses when I want, and only when I want
I think mistress is rubbish.

Snosing with master

So there we are. 100 things written up at the flick of a paw. It didn't take me hours to think of. And I think it is a very good and very interesting list myself. Better than mistress's silly list clicky here if you really want to read it. ETA Ooops, no it's not there. She must be gutted that my list is smarter than hers. Hehe! She's taken it off her blog.

Now Charlie has given me the thinking blogger award. So now I have it twice as The Barkalot Boyz gave me it just in time for my Gotcha Day. That means I must think twice as much as mistress as she has only been given it once, I think.

And my very bestest Frenchie pal Balboa sent me a brill card for my Gotcha Day. I made mistress print it out and it is now on the wall. Thank you Balboa.

So without further ado, I am going to pass the thinking blogger award on to:

Balboa - because he posts up funny pictures and then other pups come up with clever captions, although I can never think of any, and he is also an all-round nice guy
Jazz and Dixie - because I can't believe how beautifully well-behaved they are at dog school, and how much they go out for long walks, and I love the pictures they post of far-away Japan
Guinness and Shiloh - because they are such right-on dogs who take in other foster doggies until they are ready to go to new homes, even if their house guests cause a few problems for them
Randi - because she writes about lots of different stuff, and she took in lots of doggies into the Randi Refugee Camp which I thought was very noble
Tasha and Eva - because they also write about lots of different things, including important news items, and essential oils and lots of clevernesses

And because I have got this award twice I am going to add five others. So:

Peanut (and Flash) - well he must be a thinking blogger because his blog is called Peanuts-Thoughts, and he thinks of lots of different things, and travels to different parts of America, and lives with a wicked cat so he must be a very thoughtful dog, and he loves the beautiful Penny too
Lorenza - who is the only Mexican dog I know and sometimes speaks to me in Spanish so I can practise my Spanish barks which I am losing a bit, and who is a very well-informed and savvy dog, and who also has amazing abuela-designer outfits - I have never seen any Spanish dogs wearing clothes
The Army of Four - because they think of lots of missions (although I am still keeping my head down on that one)
Bama and the River Hill Pack - because they think of others and post about important issues like missing dogs
Rockstar and Mati - because they always make me think how nice it would be to have a nice bro (or sis) again

I really can't remember who has got this award so far, but these were the first ten that came into my head. If you've already got it, great. If you haven't, great. :)

Now I am meant to post up the rules, but I am too busy thinking about other things to do that. But you can pass it on to five other dogs, and if you want the piccy and rules you can find them at Charlie's or The Barkalot Boyz blogs.


Peanut said...

Thank you for the award. Mother says she doesn't think I am much of a thinker but I have to disagree. Those humans need help. Oh and just earlier I was chewing on a nice animal hoof, I think it was pig as not big enough to be cow and that wicked cat was staring at me. I am thinking up a plot to get rid of him.

Randi said...

Hi Dear Darling Pippa...Thank you so much for the award! You look very mysterious & alluring in that last picture...& you look very sweet & nurturing in the snoses pic with master...he is one lucky master to have a Darling Pippadog as you!

Love & Licks,

Cassidy said...

Oooh, you do like chasing cats! I better run faster than you!

MaxDex said...

I like your list of 100!
You are right, that's really smart. I doubt your mum can think of that.


Tasha & Eva said...

Hello handsome one! Sorry we haven't been about much lately. We have been hibernating with our cold temperatures. We would love to take up on your offer to snuggle!! Thank you so much for the wonderful award. I don't know if we deserve it, but we will keep trying to think hard for interesting things to put in our blog. We are sorry that we missed your Gotcha Day. You have made your humans very happy in the years that you have been with them. We just love the picture of you giving snoses to Master! We also like your 100 list. Except for that Mistress is rubish. She loves you very much and helps you with your blog, so be nice! She is a wonderful Mistress. Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa!
Te saludo en español para que no se te olvide!
Felicidades por tu premio y por darmelo a mi!


Hi Pippa,
Thanks so much for the award. I, Jazz am a thinker and have worked out how to get the many things I desire from my mum! Not sure about Dixie though she always just seems to dive in head first! We also enjoy reading your blog and looking at your pics like the one at the end of this post!

Pacco de Mongrel said...

100 is not a small amount..

great job for achiving that...

Sophie Brador said...

Pippa, Excellent list! But I do wonder about one thing. If given a choice between the toast and the butter, which would you pick?


Jackson said...

Congrats on your awards, Pips! I think your list of 100 random facts is pawsome. I don't do snoses though. J x

Kathryn and Ari said...

Congrats, Pippa! We think your swell. (And we're really, really big fans of buttered toast here, too!).

Hammer said...

Hi Pippa
I'm not into rules either. I'm a free spirit.
Hope you and your pawrents have a great weekend.
Love from Hammer

Jake of Florida said...

Pippa, Just a quick comment in response to your post.

The cats in the Everglades are -- how should we say this -- rather large. Perhaps the name will say it all: Florida panther.

We're rushing to tell you this in case you or mistress get the craazy idea of visiting to look for cats...

More later.

Jake and JH

Tasha & Eva said...

Hello darling Pippa! Don't you worry about us not loving you. We still both love you very much!! Sherman is just a good friend. We will always love you no matter what, so don't worry, OK? Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Hi Pippa! Hope you're having a great day! Go to the beach for us, would you? We live too far away!

Buko (in spirit), Jackson, and Narra said...

Hello, Pippa!
Sorry we haven't been by in a while. A belated happy Gotcha Day to you!

And, yes, you certainly are a thinking dog--like us, we think. :) You remind us of that Longfellow line about "long, long thoughts..." We think he's referring to the thoughts of shepherds and not the thoughts of youth!

These hoooomans always make such a song and dance about stuff, you and I, we are short, sweet and to the point in our writings.
