One of my newest (and youngest) friends, Oscar, has nominated me for the Liebster Award. I can’t begin to say how honored I feel. You can check out his blog at: A Rottweiler at The Cottage on the Green.

With the nomination comes the duty of having to answer 11 questions. Here goes nothing!

1) What do you consider to be the best time of day: Evening. That’s when Mom and me get our snuggles in.

2) Name your icon: Hmmmm…..this is a tough one. Part of me wants to say my best friend, Khia, because she’s so brave and big and wonderful. Another part of me says Underdog because he can fly . Sometimes I pretend I can fly and jump REAAAAAALLY far and high off of the deck. I especially like to do this when I have my red jacket on because it looks like a cape 🙂

3) Do you have a nemesis, if so who / what? JAMISON!  My stupid cat brother who is evil and wants to kill me but pretends to be nice sometimes and that’s even scarier.

4) If you could have a super power what would it be? I would want to be able to turn mean cats into toads. Yeah….toads. Not you, Carol or Sammy or Samantha!!! Just mean cats!!!

5) Postman, love them of hate them? What’s a postman? Be right back….. Ok! I just asked Dad what a postman was and he said it’s the girl that drives by our house in the jeep and puts the mail in the mailbox. She doesn’t bother me because our mailbox is really far from the house.

6) What is your earliest memory ? Living on the street. It was very scary. 

7) How did you start writing a blog ? My Mom and I were looking at facebook and we saw a video of a hamster that went viral all because he was eating a tiny burrito. Mom looked at me and said that if that hamster could get millions of views, I certainly could become an internet sensation. So here I am!

8) Social media, pleasure or bane of your life ? Pleasure when I’m using it, bane when Mom is using it.

9) What is the one thing you treasure above anything else ? Family. Nothing means more to me than my parents and Khia. Not even pork tenderloin (that’s a story for another time).

10) Do you have a nickname if so what is it and why? That’s funny! I just did a whole post on this very subject:  What’s in a name?

11) What is your favourite past time? Snuggling. I don’t care who it’s with as long as they squeeze tight and tell me they love me 🙂


11 Random Facts About Me:

1) I think I might have a thousand spots. Seriously.

2) I have one spot that used to look just like Mickey Mouse but as I’ve grown up Mickey has become a bit distorted.

3) When Mom leaves for work in the morning, I panic and have to wake Dad. Yes, I know she leaves every day but it freaks me out and Dad MUST wake up right away.

4) When Mom first brought me home, I used to hide under Khia when we would go outside.

5) I have lots of toys but Dad’s socks are my favorite. It doesn’t matter if they are clean or dirty!

6) Having my nails clipped is my chinese water torture. I yelp before the clippers even touch the nail. Don’t even try to come near me with a grinder!

7) I like to steal Mom and Dad’s coffee when they aren’t looking.

8) I steal food from Mya who is blind and diabetic while she is eating. I never claimed to be perfect!

9) If you scratch my back just above the base of my tail I will “tap dance” and eventually fall over.

10) I enjoy watching the Puppy Bowl with Mom and Khia every year.

11) I am really weirdly shaped/sized and have a hard time finding clothes that fit.


Now it’s my turn to nominate. In no particular order:

1) meandray: My best blog buddy (BBB), Ray, and his dad, Colin. This is their 2nd nomination and I vote that they have to answer both Oscar’s questions AND my questions 😛

2) creekviewcarol: My NICE cat friend, Carol. Her blog is one of the funniest things I have EVER read. Mom reads it too and laughs her super ridiculous laugh 😀

3) The Adventures of Sawyer: My Jack Russell Terrier friend, Sawyer. He goes on some of the most amazing excursions and his mom takes BEAUTIFUL pictures.

4) Lexi the Schnauzer: She’s nice, funny, and beautiful. C’mon, I am a living, breathing male!

5) Cupcake Speaks: My friend Cupcake is a therapy dog and her mom write’s children’s books.

6) Easy Blog: My new friend, Easy the weimaraner is so cool!

7) Mister Baloney Head: Another new friend of mine who is really funny.

8) The Dante Diaries:  My little friend Dante makes my mom smile so big and for that, he deserves everything 🙂

9) Wags Ahoy: My good friend, Gilligan, who inspires me to possible be trained….one day…..maybe.

I was a discarded, lost little stray without a house or a family...until my mom found me. Now, I am the happiest, most loved dog in the whole world!

  4. I’m nominated! Wow! It reminds me of the time I played Toto for 26 performances and was nominated for a the Director’s Choice Annie Awards – Annies are like Oscars only they are local and named after a girl instead of a boy. Guess what? I won!
    I’m not sure how this one works, since I didn’t have to answer any questions for my Annie, I just had to act my little heart out every night. Play to the audience but pretend they aren’t there. Make them laugh, may them sigh, make them clap. Make them all come back and make them all wish they had a little dog named Toto. Ahhh. So, here goes:
    1) What would you do if your parents brought home a new puppy?
    First I would wonder if they needed their heads examined. If they wanted to clean up pee and poop all over the house and listen to a lot of whining, they should have just told me so. I can be very accommodating.

    2) If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Back on the stage at the Theatre Centre. It is where I am happiest.

    3) What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?
    Well, I had to set up an email account when I started my blog, and I hear you can get attachments on e-mail. I am hoping to get lots of treats attached…

    4) If you went to the pet store, what is one thing you couldn’t leave without buying?
    I saw a ferret I really wanted, but mom wouldn’t buy it for me. I heard her say something about me being a ratter.

    5) What do you want to be when you grow up? If you are already a grown up, did you do what you wanted to do?
    I didn’t know I wanted to be a therapy dog until I got to go into the kid’s hospital and make them smile. Now I smile the whole time I am there doing therapy, and they smile too. It’s my best trick. I am an actor, a therapy dog, an agility dog and a freestyle dog. Yep, I did what I wanted to do, and am still doing most of it.

    6) What is your favorite animal? Me

    7) How would you describe your personality? My motto is “Mine, now.” Even though I can be pretty self-serving, I really am sensitive to how people feel and try to make them feel better when they are sad. I am busy, as in, “Why walk when you can trot?” I am focused on whatever I do. I like to bark but understand when Mom tells me to be sweet.

    8) If you could change one thing about your parents, what would you change? They would feed my more often and with their food.

    9) Do you sleep in the bed with your parents, a crate, couch, or a doggy bed? I start out in my kennel. Then I get in bed with my folks. Then I sleep on the big ortho dog bed that used to belong to my sister Lily, who went to the rainbow bridge. Then I get back in bed with Mom and Dad. Sometimes I get back out and sleep on the rug. I move around a lot. I have homemade wooden doggie stairs right next to the bed, so it is easy to do. (I hope this wasn’t supposed to be a one-word answer. If so, the answer is crate-parents-doggiebed-rug.)

    10) Do you play fetch? No, I play catch. I make up the rules, of course. Playing catch with the ball is good training for catching food, and that’s what’s important. Actually, once in a great while I will play fetch, but I only do it to make my mom happy. If she throws the stick or ball more than once, I quit. I can only make her so happy, then her happiness is her own responsibility.

    11) If you answered ‘yes’ to #10: Why would you play that silly game?! I just don’t understand it! If you answered ‘no’, is it because it makes no sense to you, too???

    I hope this is what you wanted. I can do it different if you want. I want to win. Uh, what do I get if I win?


    • Lexi, I didn’t know you had so many talents!!! Your answers made me laugh so hard, especially #9. In Blog World, a nomination is already a win. Weird, I know. So you have actually already won the Liebster Award! You should make a blog entry, and put your answers on there. Then you should like 11 random facts about yourself. After that, you should nominate 3-11 other blogs, and give them 11 questions to answer. IF YOU WANT TO OF COURSE 🙂 Unfortunately, all you win is the Liebster Award picture. Apparently these blog awards were not created with dogs in mind. What dog wants a picture? GIMME TREATS, I SAY! Thank you for taking part in this. I really enjoyed it 😉

  10. Hi Noodle! Thank you for the nomination! I’ve never received an award before and I am greatly honored woof woof woof! I can’t stop wagging my tail and bragging to my two dumb little meow meow brothers since I heard about this award.

    By the way, I LOVE the puppy bowl and mommy & I are really looking forward to watching it. I don’t think daddy is quite as excited… he pretty much just likes to watch those dumb humans run around with a ball and knock each other over.

    • I never thought to brag to Jamison!!! On second thought, maybe I won’t because he’s already pretty mean to me. I don’t need to give him more ammunition. Last year, Khia and I got to watch it on the 50″ TV!!! Well, I watched, she slept. The first time I saw it, I put my feet up on the TV stand and was watching 🙂
