Versatile Blogger Award

Everyone loves a surprise and I've received a really nice one from Deborah Flick at Boulder Dog – the Most Versatile Blogger Award! Deborah is a fellow Colorado blogger, but we've never met, although I hope to remedy that at BlogPaws West. If you haven't read Boulder Dog yet, definitely click on over. It's very entertaining and full of great insight regarding fearful dogs, gained through her experiences with her sweet girl, Sadie.

Many thanks to Deborah for this award, for her kind words about Raising Ruby, and for helping spread awareness about service dogs.

So let's see. The rules for this award are to share seven things about yourself and then paw the award forward to others. OK, instead of seven, I'm going to share ten Top Ten Favorite Muppets and Why I Love Them!

Cookie Monster – He lives for cookies and I do too!
Kermit – It just takes one small critter to begin something extraordinary.
Beaker – What can I say, I have a thing for scientists. :)
Count Von Count – Well, I hate math but I love bats!
Guy Smiley – He's America's Favorite Game Show Host!
Sam The Eagle – Looks exactly like a nice nun I had in grammar school.
Grover – Like all of us, he makes a lot of mistakes, and that's totally OK.
Oscar – Because sometimes it's just really fun to be really grumpy.
Rowlf – He's a Muppet Dog, so...of course!
The Yip Yips – Stars of my most favorite Muppet skit ever:

Deborah is also a 2010 Petties Award nominee, so to paw this award forward, here's a shout out to all of the blogs in the running this year. If you haven't visited some of them yet, you'll be in for a treat!

Congrats on your award and nice sharing of the Muppets. Mom so wishes they would revive Kermit - she just knows the little bipeds would love him.

See ... I'm totally a Grover girl. The book called The Monster at the End of This Book is the story of my life.

Roxanne @ Champion of My Heart said...

Thanks so much for the mention. Cannot wait to see you/meet you at BlogPaws. I'll be driving into the city and back each day.

Roxanne, I totally agree. Grover is the one nearest and dearest to my heart. :)

Hey Roo! congrats on that great award! Do you have any idea when that skit aired originally? Mom seems to think she remembers it from when she was a kid but I had to remind her that was like 30 years ago (a few more than that actually). I was just wondering if she was crazy or not.
