Back to the Blog (with awards to pass on)

Hello all, Miley here after a long hiatus. No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth into a ravine, but things got a bit busy. We've catching up on work delayed by last month's snow storms (not much snow, but wet slick roads). Noticed that the rattlesnakes are back out again. I've been happy to hike around in the hills helping Mommy get back into shape. She has a great fondness for chocolate (which I'm not allowed to eat).

We wish a belated thankyou to Jake and Fergi for the Nemo and Proximity Awards. To answer the question, why do we like blogging. I, Miley the gabby one, loves to talk and hear about other dog's lives and experiences. Pictures of our doggy friends give us glimpses into their lives and that of their human parents. Blogging is a great way to meet others and find common grounds or interesting activities. I think Mommy likes to get away from the typical restrictions and forced precision of technical writing (reports and site forms) and relax with a little creativity. Admitedly, we are very new to blogging and Mommy's posts are rough compared to many of our fellow dog bloggers. She is still having problems with photo positioning, etc.. I'm trying to help her.

We realize that there are many wonderful blogs out there. We have chosen this time around to pass the Nemo and Proximity Awards on to Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie, Maggie and Mitch the Airedales, Penney, Poppy, and Patches, Ruby, Willow, Hollie and Janie, and Barney and Storm. Several of you all have undoubtedly received these before. Thanks for your creative, colorful, and highly enjoyable blogs.

Hugs and happy trails, Miley
