Blogging with Style

Drum roll, please!  I really, really like Royalty Living a Regular Life by Tracy.  Thank you, again, for the Stylish Blogger Award.

There are requirements to fulfill in receiving this award, I have found: 
  • Thank the person who gave it to you - that would be Tracy and her gorgeous and most entertaining Coonhounds, Bella and Daisy.  Thank you.
  • List seven things/secrets about you,  your dogs, whatever.  Here goes:
1. The one thing I can always rely on to surprise people who have met and not known me long but long enough to think they know me well is that I regularly raced autocross in MT with my Triumph Spitfire and Porsche 911 and would it again in a heartbeat .
2. Horses have been the driving animal passion in my life.  Dogs are great, rescue is challenging and rewarding, but horses soothe my soul.
3. I don't currently have a horse.   I do have 19 dogs in residence - and they daily bless my spirit. 
4. When I was 16 and attending the United Methodist Church, I asked our pastor if    Methodists had nuns, thinking I would become one.  They did and I did not.
5. Once, when visiting cousins, they all went to the MN Vikings football game, leaving me home with my aunt.  When I mentioned I liked football, too, she was shocked - "Bobbie, I see you always with your nose in a book!  I had no idea." True - I go nowhere without a book or two.
6. I have a running love affair with senior dogs like Cyrano, Betty Boop and Cane.
7. I cannot tell stories or jokes but most of my very good friends can.
  • I need to pass this award onto other bloggers.  Previous recipients have chosen more or less from 5-15, so here goes:
  1. Wilf the PON Discovers France - gently, beautifully written by Angus
  2. Rescued Insanity - Kristine is becoming a lynch pin in the dog blogging world.
  3. My Dog Farm - my fav animal photog, HSSEMO foster home and friend, Rochelle.
  4. Live with Flair - Heather uses everyday moments to show us God.
  5. Barnyard of the Tragically Hip - three times a week, a new look at life.
  6. Be More with Less - Courtney challenges me to live with less stuff, more life.
  7. Will My Dog Hate Me?  Edie helps me live sanely with my dogs - and laugh.
I now have the privilege of telling these blogs they have won :).   I may just make this a regular part of this blog - finding and recommending "new" (to me) blogs by following others' links and enjoying the blog hops.  Thanks again and read on.  Congratulations!
