One Sweeeeeeeeeeeet Award!

I have been awarded the Super Sweet Blogging Award by Echo & Link of Husky's Life and Sheba's life story!!!  

I am extremely honored to have been given this award, especially by Echo & Link and Sheba, whose blogs we really enjoy.  

Merci beaucoup Echo et Link!  
Thank you so much Sheba!

With this award comes certain duties.  First I must answer the “super sweet” questions :

1. Cookies or Cake?
Both!  I love cookies, and I love cake!  My favorite cakes are from Three Dog Bakery, and they're yummilicious!  And I love ALL KINDS of cookies!

Super-yummy cookies my momma made
(covered with carob, not chocolate)

Three Dog Bakery cookies are awesome too!

2. Chocolate or Vanilla?
Momma says I can't eat chocolate because I'm a dog and chocolate is bad for dogs, but I'm not buying it.  I think she just wants all the chocolate for herself because she's such a chocolate fiend.  So unfortunately I have no access to chocolate because momma thinks it will hurt me, so I guess I'm stuck with vanilla.  Honestly, I haven't met a flavor I didn't like.

3. What is your favorite sweet treat?
Frosty Paws!  No surprise there.  I also like cakes from Three Dog Bakery.  (See response to question #1 above.)  And apples.  And peanut butter.

4. When do you crave sweet things the most?
Always.  I'm a lab, so I'm always hungry.  Always.  If I don't have access to something sweet, I'll resort to paper products.

Phone books are an acquired taste

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?
I have lots of silly nicknames, including Muffin, Lab-a-muffin, and Muffaletta.  In no way do I resemble a muffin or a muffaletta, so I have no idea where the humans get this stuff.

Next I must pass on the award to a baker's dozen of my favorite bloggers.  I have so many favorites, I could make a list a mile long.  So I've tried to chose blogs that my readers may not yet know about that I think they will enjoy.

Pawsitively Pets
One Blue Dog
Gemma's Little Gems
Alasandra, the Cats and a Dog
Cotton's Candy
Terrier Torrent
Loveable Lily
Belly Rub Please
Life With Beagle
My Girlz Got Pawz
Life at Golden Pines
Susie and Sidebite
Floppy Tongue Joy

I love awards, but I realize they can be very time-consuming for our staff, many of whom have a lot of other stuff to do, and LOTS of extra stuff this time of year.  And I know some bloggers just aren't into awards or they don't really fit into their blog format, and that's okay.  So if you don't have the time or inclination to pass on the award, we understand -- we still like you and we'll still keep loving your bloggies!  And it still gives our other friends a chance to check out some blogs they may not have heard of yet.

Okay, enough blogging, I want a cookie!
