Liebster Award

At times Dad is slower than an Alaskan Glacier.  This is one of those times.  We received two awards many dog moons ago and we will address the "Liebster Blog" award today and the other later in the week.    
The received the "Liebster" from our cyber-pal Petal several Dog Moons ago, like way back in December.  Petal lives with Lassie, Ella and their wonderful Dog Mom, Marquie.  They live in Utah and they are pawsome.  Lassie was born in Oklahoma, which has a special place in Dog Dad’s heart.  Dad lived in Oklahoma for about four years, while working in the oil patch.  He has some exceptionally close friends that still live there.  Dad thinks Marquie is quite insightful for one so young.  If you get a chance stop by and say hello to them at "Two Collies and a Mutt. 

The Liebster award works as follows: 
Liebster means “dearest” in German, and the award is intended to help up-and-coming blogs get the attention they deserve. As with any award, there is a bit of ceremony involved. In order to accept the award, we must do the following:
  • Copy and paste the award on our blog.
  • Link back to the blogger who gave us the award.
  • Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
  • Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.
It was a bit of challenge as a lot of blogs we follow have either over 200 followers or have no follower list.  Here are the five blogs:

Shikota~ Double Trouble Collie Tales:  This blog stars Sherman’s brudder Dakota and cousin Shiloh.  They have their own boy, Master B.  We are jealous because most every dog wants a boy and a family of humans.  Besides boys and girls are more fun than adults. 
Cowspot Dogs:  This blog stars Reilly, Denny, Jackson and their hoomans.  When we first met them, they lived in Nebraska.  Now they live in OurKansas (Arkansas).   Their Mum is originally from Oz and has a special way of writing.  They used to have a sock monster, but we haven’t read about him in quite some time.

Collies and Life:  Stars Duffy and his pawrents that live in the Great White North (Canada).  It is more a hooman blog than a collie blog, but Dad loves reading their blog.  It reminds him of a simpler, no frills time.  You can find an occasional pearl of wisdom when reading Collies and Life.
Sheltie Times:  Stars Bailey and Katie live up in New England.  Bailey just turned nine on 10 March.  They have a friendly feel to their blog.  Given the BoSox blanket sightings, we believe their Dad is a big time BoSox fan. 
Charlene and Storm:  Stars Storm the Border Collie and his Dog Mom Charlene.  They live across the pond in the United Kingdom.  We just started reading them a couple months ago, and they have a lots of pictures.  They even get to be around sheep (we are jealous, because we want to herd sheep).

Dad has lots of work to do, so the other very special award we received, will be addressed later this week. 

Essex & Sherman.

PAW ESSS:  The plant in our last post was pineapple.
