“YOU LIKE ME, YOU REALLY LIKE ME” – Thankful Thursday

This week I was doubly excited to learn that I’d received two wonderful tokens of Blogger Love. I guess for some of you whose wonderful blogs I follow this may be old hat, but to this still-newbie blogger it’s cause for joy…Just like Sally Field I want to  jump up and shout…

Sally Field wins the Oscar for “Norma Rae” 1980

Both these awards were presented to Gizmo & me by the wonderful Hannah of Animal Tails, and I can’t thank Hannah enough for starting my 2013 blogging year off in such a splendid fashion.

On New Year’s Eve I learned I was shortlisted for her Animal Tails Blog Award Ceremony 2012. She even created an adorable badge for the award. Gizmo & I didn’t win our category, but as they say at the Oscars “It’s an honor just to be nominated”…except unlike Hollywood, I really mean it.


Then on New Years Day, much to my great surprise, Hannah bestowed on us a coveted “2012 BLOG OF THE YEAR”  trophy with our first-ever star…Wow! if that’s not the way to start off the new year right!


As many of you know, this award comes with some rules. If you receive the award, you must pass it on. But this award is special, as you can receive it multiple times, each time adding a  star to your badge. You can present the award to any number of blogs that have not yet accumulated all six stars,  including the one that gave it to you.

For various reasons I’m passing on this award to the following blogs. They are all different, but what they have in common is that they keep me coming back regularly to see what’s new in their worlds.

And now, in no particular order, I pass on this Award to:

Rescued Insanity

The Great & Powerful Oz the Terrier

Pawsitively Pets

2 Brown Dogs Blog

Cotton’s Candy

Hey It’s Jet Here

and, back at ya Hannah…Animal Tails … go pick up that second star…

The winners can visit the Thought Palette to pick up their badges and learn more about the award.

Once again, huge thanks to Hannah for making my week!

I’m sharing my post on the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Thanks to PepiSmartDog for hosting. Everyone’s invited to join in and share what you’re thankful about this week.

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.
