The dictionary defines “sweetness” as “the state or quality of having a pleasant or agreeable manner in socializing with others”. So when my furriend Garth Riley of The World According to Garth chose me for his Super Sweet Blogging Award I was so happy. I’ve tried to make sure my mom represents me well out in Blogville and this lovely award tells me she’s doing OK (time out for extra *thankyousnoogles* for mom)This means a lot coming from Garth. I’ve enjoyed getting to know him and we’ve had a lot to woof about cause he’s spent time down here in Florida and we both love hiking and playing out in the woods.

The first responsibility that comes with this sweet award is to answer a list of Super Sweet questions. I’m gonna get mom to help with this part…

1. Cookies or Cake?

Cookies! I love cookies! I love all cookies! Tuna cookies, Turkberry cookies, Liver cookies, Bacon cookies, Salmon cookies…ALL COOKIES ALL THE TIME!

2. Chocolate or Vanilla?

I don’t know about chocolate, so I’ll let mom answer this one: CHOCOLATE 4 EVER! (mom is a total chocoholic and to her a day without chocolate is a day without sunshine – BOL!)

3. What is your favorite sweet treat?

Oh my dog, it’s so hard to choose…Right now what I’m loving the most are my mom’s home-made squash brownies (she’s gonna post the recipe for them on this week’s Tasty Tuesday blog hop tomorrow) and my Plato Salmon Strips (mom got them fur me at my favorite store,  The Doggie Bag cause I was so good during my holiday photo shoot there). But of course that can always change…I’m a cosmopolitan dawg with an educated palate so I’ll give any cookie a try.

4. When do you crave sweet things the most? 

I’ve got this one mom – ALL THE TIME! I like cookies before breakfast, after breakfast, fur a mid-day snack, fur a mid-afternoon snack, before dinner, after dinner, fur dessert and of course fur a bedtime snack. Just in case you think I’m either spoiled or VERY fat, I’m not…mom is very strict about when I get cookies…I’ve tried negotiating with her but she says it’s fur my own good, so usually only 2-3 cookies/day. Am I deprived or what?!?

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?

Mom calls me all sorts of silly hoomin names – Gimmers, Little G, G-Man, Snooglepuss, Scruffalicious, and the ever-popular but not understood Boo or BooDawg…you get the idea. And I have some furriends that call me Gizzy or Gizzie (you know who you are BOL!) To make mom happy I’ll answer to all of them but sheesh can I get a little respect here please.

The second responsibilty of this award is to pass it on to 13 (a Baker’s Dozen of course) of my favorite bloggers. This is the hard part…I’ve met so many great bloggers whose blogs I love that I’m not sure how I can choose, so I’ll pass this one on to mom. She’ll do her best. Here, in no particular order (homegirl that she is, there might be a slight bias towards blogs from fellow Florida dawgs, though the list reaches as far as France,  Great Britain, Indonesia and New Zealand)  I’m passing along the Super Sweet Blogging Award to:

Hey…It’s Jet Here

It does take some time to respond to an award like this, so if your schedule is a little too busy during this holiday season mom & I understand…but we wanted you to know how much we enjoy reading your blogs. And if you can fit it in, we’d love to see who YOU choose to give some sweetness.

Gizmo Out!

About Gizmo

Hi! I'm Gizmo...a handsome terrier-about-town with a distinct point of view. I will write about whatever interesting things come across my desk, appear on my twitter feed @GizmoGeodog, or meet me out on the geotrails. I love to geocache cause it takes me to all the wild places & I can get back to being a real dog. I care about all my brofurs & sisfurs who haven't found their own forever homes yet, & raise funds to help them whenever I can. My girl brought me home from the shelter & together we explore our world. I do my best to make her smile, & she does her best for me. We are a team.
