It's an Un-Forgettable Friday

Today is the first Friday of 2013 and it is a GREAT day!  The sun is out, the weather is just right (about 70F), I went on a fun walk through the neighborhood with Ma and...I received my first Blog Award of the new year!

My very good friend, Gizmo (@GizmoGeoDog on Twitter), over at Terrier Torrent honored me with the 'Blog of the Year 2012' Award.  Thank you SO much, Gizmo!

The award is super pawesome because you can get it more than once.  I now have the one-star award, but each time you receive it you can collect another star (up to 6).  I love it!

As with many blog awards, this one comes with rules...and even though I sometimes do NOT follow rules at home, I always follow the rules of a Blog Award.

So...the rules for this award are:

1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the 'Blog of the Year 2012' Award. - Check!  I know who I have selected.  Are you curious?

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen and 'present' them with the award. - Check! Here are the blogs I have selected and why I have selected them:

Terrier Torrent - Go get that second star, Gizmo!  Gizmo is a terrier from Florida, just like me (and we have become fast friends!!)!  Gizmo goes on awesome hiking adventures and blogs all about them.

Max the Quilt Cat - Max was one of my very first C-A-T friends in the Blogworld and on Twitter, and now I am pals with Bugsy and Knuckles too.  Max's blog is chock-full of very creative paintings and drawings.  Max also introduced me to one of my favorite days of the week - #ToonaTuesday.

Marley and Lola's Border Terrier Life - Marley was my VERY FIRST friend on Twitter and one the first pals to follow my blog!  He recently went over the rainbow, which made many of us very sad but Clapton Terrier has taken over the writing about their adventures in the U.K.

Ruby the Airedale - Ruby is a fairly new friend and we get along fabulously!  I love seeing her in all the silly hats and such that her mom-person insists on tricking her into wearing.  She always makes me smile!

3. Please include a link back to the page 'Blog of the Year 2012'. - Check!  Here and if you click my award.

4. Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award. - On that now so...Check!

5.  Join the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group. - Hmmm, need to do that in a bit.

6. Link back to the blog that presented you with the award...then proudly display your award.  - Double Check!  I even gave Gizmo at Terrier Torrent a second star!

What an Un-Forgettable First Friday of 2013!!!  Have a great weekend, pals!
