Sunshine award

A few days ago Dogs N Pawz gave us a sunshine award. Do we need it! Before the first week of June was over, the Seattle area had already exceeded the average rainfall for the total month. I live in fear that the strawberries will mold before they ripen. And the slugs are invading everywhere. Last night I found half a dozen of them right outside the back door. I just about screeched. Well, I did screech. Rats, snakes, spiders--they don't make me screech but slugs do. You can imagine what I think of sci-fi movies where the aliens are covered in slime. 
For the sunshine award,  the dogs answer several questions and then I pass it along to ten people. Then they pass it along to ten.

The rules are:
• Answer the questions that come with it
• Pass it along to 10 people and let them know they have received it (We're doing six right now because somebody is running out of time and has to get back to work!)

Here are the questions and our answers
Favorite number:

We can’t count but we like hearing “a lot,” as in “I have brought you a lot of treats.”

Favorite Non-alcoholic drink:

Chicken broth, preferably poured over Mom’s dinner and put in our bowls.

Facebook or Twitter:

Mom says FB because it has photos of Airedales.

My Our Passion:

Our latest is freeze-dried liver treats. There were some fish treats we liked even better but Mom said they’re too smelly. How can something be too smelly?

Favorite Pattern:

The footprints that squirrels leave in mud.

Favorite Day of the Week:

Every day!

Favorite Flower:

We Airedales are the flower of dogdom, according to Mom.

Here are six awardees in no particular order:

The Thuglets because they have such fun.
Bouncing Bertie because I love visiting Scotland.
El Diario de Lorenza because Lorenza is stuck indoors due to too much sunshine.
Mitch and Molly because they (Mitch and Maggie) are the ones who first invited us into the dog-blog community.
Little House in Paradise because it is a drool-worthy blog even without dogs.
The Beak Whisperer because of the parrots.


  1. Congratulations on your award!

    Thank you for honoring me with the award also. Love how the dogs were happy to accept it and give such smart answers. I think my dogs will be jealous if I don't do the same for them.

    I must get packed up and down the road...I'll wave when I pass by your area on 'The 5'. - I probably won't get a chance to have the dogs answer their questions until next week when I get back up here.

    Have a lovey week.! xo
