Our First Award

Woohoo! Today, we were nominated by one of our dear friends for our first ever award! This is exciting stuff; the pups are jumping, slobbering and running in circles over here 🙂

Liebster means Dearest in German, so the Liebster Blog Award is the Dearest Blog Award. It’s an award intended to recognize worthy, lesser known blogs and to help expose their work. Of course, accepting The Liebster Award comes with a few rules!

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks {with less than 200 readers} and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite up-and-coming bloggers and keep it going!

A giant-sized Thank You to Bongo for nominating us for this award! It is such an honor to receive an award from a blog you love to read. Bongo shares wonderful stories about himself and his person- they are always hiking cool trails and taking great pictures. Sometimes Scratchy the cat hijacks the blog. If you don’t know Bongo, check out some of his fun stories!

Now, it’s time to nominate some of my blogging friends for the award! We learn new things everyday from all of our dog blogging buddies and always get a few good laughs looking at adorable puppy pictures. I’m giving my awards to dog blogs starring rescued pups, as dog adoption is something I strongly support! Thank you to all of my nominees for choosing adoption.

Wayward Dogs is a feel-good blog about finding and helping dogs who have lost their way. Along with heartfelt stories about reunion, rescue and adoption, Wayward Dogs has thought-provoking stories about finding purpose in life.

Iowa Dog Blog features our boxer pals, Gertie and Duke. Their mom and rescuer, Andrea takes lots of wonderful pictures of them and also posts about doggie events and important canine causes.

Chancy the Gardener stars Chancy, the rescue pup and his fun adventures with his mom, dad and siblings. The animal family consists of three dogs, three cats and a guinea pig, all who were rescued or adopted.

Uptown Dog is one of my newest blogging buddies from The Big Apple. An adorable Corgi mix rescue, Uptown Dog shares his stories about his new life in NYC. His stories always make us smile!

Rumpydog always has a fun story, a great interview or a helpful tip to offer readers. Rumpy was rescued from the side of a busy street and now shares a nice house with his mom, Jenny, and another dog and kitty.
