This ‘N That Thursday

Share Button

Being fairly new to this blogging community we are very grateful for the support that we’ve received from our fellow bloggers and their faithful readers. We have been fortunate enough to receive several award nominations in the last few months and have been negligent in fully responding to them. SlimDoggy wanted to do that today as part of This ‘N That Thursday blog hop. Take it away SlimDoggy.

super-sweet-blogging-awardI was so excited to be nominated for the Super Sweet Blogging Award by both Cascadian Hounds and Words with Weiners. (Very appropriate given our post on sweeteners yesterday). A great big THANK YOU to those friends for nominating us – I expect to get lots of SWEETS now! The rules for the SSBA are:

  1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger who nominated you – CHECK did that
  2. Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in your blog post – CHECK did that too
  3. Answer the five super sweet questions.

Hmm, I think these might be tough.

  • Cookies or cakes? Either
  • Chocolate or vanilla? Same answer.
  • Favorite sweet treat? Strawberries
  • When do you crave sweet things most?  24/7
  • Sweet nickname? It would be sweet if I was called RunMaster SlimDoggy

4. Nominate a bakers dozen bloggers & notify them on their blog. Wow, there are so many. I guess I’ll try to focus on blogs where we get sweet ideas or maybe folks who have been sweet to us, or maybe dogs that are sweet, or dogs that I am sweet on 🙂

  1. Sugar the Golden Retriever (of course ;))
  2. My GBGV Life
  3. Kol’s Notes
  4. Jones Natural Chews
  5. To Dog with Love
  6. Peggy’s Pet Place
  7. Kirby the Dorkie
  8. Pawsitively Pets
  9. Wag N Woof Pets
  10. Talking Dogs
  11. Heart Like a Dog
  12. Tails and Tales
  13. Sugar, the Golden Retriever (I know she is on here twice, but really WHO is sweeter than Sugar?)




Ok, let’s move on to the next Award. Our buddy, Gizmo nominated us for The Versatile Blogger Award – Thanks Gizmo, much appreciated. Here’s the rules for that Award:

  1. Add The Versatile Blogger award photo on a blog post – CHECK – it’s right there — >
  2. Thank the person who presented you with the award and link back to him or her in your post – CHECK
  3. Pass the award along to some favorite bloggers & contact the chosen bloggers to let them know about the award – CHECK
  4. Share Seven Things About Yourself – CHECK


We are passing this award on to the following bloggers because I always enjoy reading their blogs and think they are ‘versatile’:

  1. Something Wagging this Way Comes – Who else could write about what we dogs do when you hoomans are having sex!
  2. No Dog Blog About It – Love to read about Daisy overcoming her fears – it teaches momz so much about my little sis, Maggie.
  3. Human Rescues Dog – What a great pair – a chocolate lab and golden retriever –  would love to chill with these guys.
  4. My Brown Newfies – You have to be versatile and flexible and amiable and maybe a little crazy to survive Sherman & Leroy!
  5. Keep The Tail Wagging – Kimberly actually has a couple of blogs. Momz says her blog on Raw Foods is a stellar primer for her to start feeding us raw…just hope there is bacon.

Seven things about me:

  1. I’m SlimDoggy Jack and I’m kind of a running fool.
  2. I like to eat.
  3. I like to run.
  4. My sister Maggie is a slowpoke.
  5. I used to be fat, now I am slim and sexy.
  6. I like to eat while I’m running.
  7. I am athletic, but I can’t catch very well.


explore-dog-award And finally, Misaki gave us The Dog Explorer Award! This is so cool because we love to explore! Here’s the rules for this award:

The rules:

1. Link to the person who gave it to you and display it on your blog – CHECK

2. Nominate up to 5 friends – CHECK
I figured since this was an ‘explorer’ award, they should be the exploring type…so here’s who I want to nominate:

  • Adventureweiner – the name says it all – these little guys go everywhere and do everything!
  • Paws & Pedals – Scooter is an awesome ‘bikeplorer’.
  • Gizmo – who introduced me to geocaching!
  • Oh My Shitzu – for such a little thing, she sure gets around!
  • There’s lot of other folks (like all our hard-working Chesapeake Bay Retrievers Explorer friends) I’d like to nominate too, but it’s dinner time, so we will save them for another time.

3. Answer the following questions

  • What is your favorite place to explore? Link to it.  I guess the beach because there are such good smells, but I don’t know how to link to the Pacific Ocean!
  • Have you ever found anything exciting/interesting whilst exploring ? I found a dead squirrel the other day. Delish! Puked it back up that nightno big deal.
  • What do you like exploring best beach or park? Hmm, tough call – when in doubt, bacon!
  • What is your favorite post you have written (link to it)? I really liked the post on Senior Exercises cause I looked so fine in my fitness vest!

That’s it – WOW that was a lot of work, but we got all of our awards out there and thanked all the folks who were so kind to nominate us and paid it forward a little bit. Enjoy all you winners! Bacon forever.


PS. Dear Labby has been on vacation – she should be back next week!

    • Maggie says she’d rather stop and smell the roses, or the coyote poop, than be ‘fast’ and miss it all.

  14. Woohoo! Congrats on all your awards! I’m so behind in reading/commenting at a lot of blogs (SlimDoggy included). And I know it’s hard to squeeze time to do award posts. I remember nominating you back in May, very shortly after I started blogging myself… that’s so funny that it’s August and you still remembered!

    • SlimDoggy never forgets…you can drop a crumb on the floor and 3 week after he still remembers it rolled under the counter and tries to get it. 🙂
