inspiration award

We received an inspiration award from What Dogs Do, a London-based blog about two greyhounds, their behavior and training. It's very timely because my son is about to go visit a friend in London. Thank you for including the farm house and its critters.

I get to pass it along to others. These are the rules:
If you are here to pick up your award, there are a few simple rules that go with accepting this award.

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded this to you.

2. Link posts by you and ten fellow bloggers that you find inspirational.

3. Forward the award to those ten fellow bloggers.

In no particular order:

1. I admire The Teacher's Pets for the energy and variety of her blogging. With her huge number of followers, she unites a large community of animal lovers. It's the blog to see for a chuckle on Saturdays where she runs the Silly Saturday photo caption contest.

2. Then there's The Japanese Redneck. You know she's got a sense of humor with a blog name like that. She writes about living in the countryside in Mississippi. She's also a competitive rider; and if you keep checking the blog, you'll find photos of her clever, creative crafts.

3. A special thanks goes to Maggie and Mitch Airedales. When I first started blogging and didn't know anything about the pet blog community, they found my blog and invited me to join in. That was truly an inspiration. You just never know what those Airedales will be up to, from building to gardening to eating ice cream (the ice cream inspires Miro and Alanis).

4. Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie inspire by being an Airedale and Welsh terrier united in total cuteness. And who could resist names like that?

5. An important blog is The Beak Whisperer. Michelle is just down the road in Portland and is slowly and patiently socializing a rescued Timneh African Gray parrot. She makes toys for parrots, does beautiful crafts and is a brave cancer survivor who never gave up. But it's Timmy the Gray who makes the blog special because Michelle truly understands what a slow process it is to befriend the intelligent, high-strung creature that is a Timneh Gray. Each tiny increment of progress is a celebration.

That's all I have time for today--must go feed baby birds at the wildlife center. More to come!
