The Liebster Award!

wpid-liebster-awardI am beloved

By my sweet blogger furriend

Thank you Kolytyi!

 

 

 

Woooohoooowooooooo! Another pawesome bloggy award, The Liebster Award! Thank you Kolytyi fur the award and your beauwoowoooootiful photography bloggy Trifles! Be sure to check out Trifles here!

Fur this award I have to answer 11 questions and nominate 11 bloggies. From Mamaclickyfingers’ research many of our fellow pet bloggers have already gotten this award, so I will just answer the questions this time since I need to take my afternoon nap soon! 🙂

1. What is your favorite piece of music? I like to do my own singing, often in duets with my sisfur Nalle: Woooooowoooooowooooo… wooooo…woooo…woooooooooooo!

2. Who is your favorite actor/actress? I like to watch wolfie documentaries, so my cousins in the wild!

3. Has your life ever been in danger? YES! When I was a baby pup, I lived on a 4-foot chain fur almost 2 years and was in severe danger of dying of starvation and dehydration like some of my pack did. 😦  If you want to know more, check out my About Kuruk page and my bookie about my rescue: Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could, One Rescue Pup’s Journey of Healing.

4. What is your favorite plant? I like to sniff and brush against the rosemary and lavender bushes all over here. Mama says it makes me smell dewishus! WOL!

5. If you were a pet, would you like to be a dog or a cat, or something else? I am a doggie! WOL!

6. Which profession did you want to choose as a child? I never thought I would be a famous author and poet. I never thought there was life beyond the puppy mill either.

7. What do you do if you are out of temper? I say WOO! and then maybe pace a bit to burn off steam.

8. How does the house/flat of your dreams look like? Where ever my Mama is!

9. What would you choose: to be a renowned scientist or to be a famous artist? Why? A famous artist because it’s much more fun to be creative! Wooooooowooooo! Maybe I will pick up paw-painting now! 😀

10. Have you ever tried some arts (literature, music, acting, fine arts, etc.)? Yes! I was in a video (click here), was a model as Mister August 2012 (click here to see!), am an author, blogger, and poet!

11. What is your favorite sport? Wrestling! Woooooowoooooooooooo!

Thank you and Free Gift Reminder!

My First Bloggyversary!

Pawty Time!

Blogging fur a year

Can’t believe it’s been that long

Posting my haiku

 

Thank you all my bloggy friends

Couldn’t do it without you!

 

 

Wooooohoooooowooooooooo Efurrybuddy! Can you believe it? I started my bloggy a year ago on April 1st 2013 with my pawticipation in the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), posting a haiku a day. If I could turn back time, I would do it all again! I was so proud of accomplishing that, that I posted nearly efurryday until February when I went into semi-bloggy retirement. My poetic pup heart can’t stay away from sharing my haiku, but now I also have time to take Mama and sisfur Nalle on new adventures! Wooooowooooooo!

And just in time fur the pawty, Mama surprised me with the announcement that I won some prizes from Miss Jan and the Wag ‘N Woof Pets! Do click on over. They are all fur the love of pets! Wooooowoooooo! How did I win these prizes you ask? Well, Luke, one of the Wag ‘N Woofs was having a contest to see if any buddy could guess his DNA. No one guessed all three breeds, but many were close, and I won the random draw! Woooowoooooooo! I won 2 gift certificates to The Greater Good Animal Rescue Site. It’s a pawesome site where you can buy lots of pawesome stuff fur you or your pawrents, and they help other animals and people in need! I told Mama clicky fingers secretary to use the gift cards to get something fur herself since she works fur me fur free. Mama deserves it! I wuvwuvwuvwuv you Mama!!! Here are all the pawesome prizes me and my furblings got:

Won some Halloween prizes

 

 

Last month on Halloween I pawticipated in the 2 Brown Dawgs’ This ‘N’ That Thursday Halloween Edition. Me and the whole pack had a pawesome time pawty hopping all day. You can check it out here. It was a special This ‘N’ That Thursday because there was going to be a random winner of some prizes. And…I won! Woooooowooooooooooo! This is like a Halloween Afterpawty! Thank you 2 Brown Doggies! Please go visit Thunder, Storm, and Freighter at the 2 Brown Dawg Bloggy (yes, there’s three of them). They also have a kitty, named Nestle! Here’s what I got…

A pawesome card! They even have a business card like me!

 

photo 3-1

A pawesome collapsable rubber water bowl. It even came with it’s own carabiner! Mama attached it to her backpack to demonstrate.

 

photo 5

And, what’s this? A spider? It’s much bigger than any spider I’ve seen!

 

photo 2-1

Maybe I will squooosh it with my bone-crushing jaws.

 

photo 4

Maybe I will shake it to pieces.

 

photo 1-1

It seems helpless upside-down. What’s that? It squeaked!

 

photo 3

He is kinda cute!

Spider was getting tired from all the excitement, so I made a nest for him to nappy in.

tnt-halloweenBooowooooboooooo! Happy Halloween Efurryone! Today is the special Halloween Edition of This ‘N’ That Thursday! I’m handing out a little of this and a lot of that treats! Click the badge to see other This ‘N’ That Thursday posts. Booooowoooobooooo!

 

 

I know this may sound very scary to many of you, but I am a little behind on a few things! It’s not my fault though, of course. My secretary Mama has been very busy, especially now that I have my new Facebook page! Will you be my friend? ***cute puppy head tilt***

First, I had received a couple of awards a while ago. One, Oh the Horror!, I cannot remember who gave it to me. I found the honor on their bloggy, but they did not leave me a comment here, and slacker Mama forgot to write it down. If this was you, I apologize, and please leave me a comment here so I can thank you properly.

the-opposites-attract-awardThe other award was from my beauwooowoootiful kitty girlfurriend Nylabluewooowooo! I just have to sing when I say Nylabluewooowoooo! As many of you know, she is being a very tough cookie and fiercely battling pancreatitis. Please send well-wishes and love to her. And thank you my Nylabluewoooowooooo for the Opposites Attract Award!

As you can guess, I have to nominate bloggers who are the opposite of me. I am a pup and a boy, so my nominees are:

Whew! Wait, wait, there’s more horror! Mama has forgotten to announce and thank two other pawesome bloggy furriends for writing about my book: Kuruk: The Little Bear That CouldThank youwooowoooooo to Wag’N’Woof Pets and Sand Spring Chesapeakes for mentioning and giving good barks, purrs, and wooowooooos to my book!

And if Mama I have GASP! forgotten anything else, please let me know. 

And now for our pawesome Halloween costume parade with the whole pack!…
