In which we receive an award...

Our good friend Hawk over at BrownDogCBR has shared something exciting with us - the Shine On award!  There are some rules we have to follow for this award:

1.) Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you 
2.) Acknowledge that blogger on your blog, and link back
3.) Share 7 random things about yourself…
4.) Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On award, provide a link to their blog in your post, and notify them on their blog.

So let's see...  7 random things about us...

1)  Harlow is such a small Golden Retriever that she can run underneath the pool table without ducking.
2)  Monty has a collection of blankets - he now owns 9 of them.  His favorite, of course, is Wendella.
3)  Momma had a garden until Harlow came.  She and Monty decided it would be fun to eat all the plants and tip all the pots over.
4)  Harlow is a grooming junky.  She lives to be brushed.  Monty?  Not so much...
5)  Many of you know that Monty likes to chase sunbeams.  What many of you may not know is that he will actually move things with his nose to get the light to reflect.  This includes blinds, toys, vases on the windowsill...  He really knows how to make light sparkle!
6)  Harlow doesn't know how to growl.  She says "grrrr" instead.  We are thinking of sending her for help.
7)  All of our male Golden's have been dark red, all of our females light like Harlow - although it isn't intentional.  This goes back all the way to Momma's first Golden as a kid, Daisy.   

...and the blogs we nominate...

Miley's Daily Scoop - a wonderful blog about three adventuresome pups!  Check out their Monday Mischief post.  They have the prettiest flowers and Miley gives you a personal tour! 

Big Stinky Dog - Mason is a fun-loving boy!  They also supply information on raw feeding! 

It's Chewy Time! - Follow the adventures of a pup named Chewy! 

The beautiful Miss Lee - Another Golden - I'm detecting a theme here...

Raising the Reuf - Monty's long lost brother. 

Stella and  Rory from Down Under  - a Cocker Spaniel and Great Dane from Australia!

Thank you, Hawk!



  1. Always fun to get an award! Congrats!

  2. Congratulations! I love #5!

  3. Congratulations on your fabulous and--dare I say it--super shiny award. :-) And many, many thanks for passing it on to me. Loved your fun facts. My humans are talking about getting a little sister for me, and my mommy has a feeling that will be the end of her beautiful garden, too. She's decided that another golden retriever is better than a pretty garden. We'll see how she feels after the puppy actually arrives. ;-)

  4. Aww thanks!!! We are very honored!


  5. My latest garden escapades have involved jumping in the raised bed and pulling out the (sometimes not fully grown) carrots. They were meant for me anyway...might as well help myself!
    Thank you for the nomination! We will have to think of some

  6. Congratulations on your award! Of course you love to be brushed and groomed, Harlow. You're a Princess!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  7. Howdy Monty and Harlow. Congratulations on your award and thanks heaps mates for passing it on to us. We love knowing that you help your mum in the garden hehe. We do too! Take care. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  8. Congratulations!! I love that Monty makes his own light.

  9. Monty, we are big fans of dark red Retrievers - our biological Dad is a dark red Retriever (which is why I'm reddish and Abby is sort of creamsicle colored). We think you're both striking looking! :-)

  10. Christine I will be by to talk with you as long as I can see even a little little bit!!!!!!!!!
    Love you!!!

  11. I love learning all those random facts. Of course, Harlow cannot growl. She is sweet, through and through. I didn't know about Monty's blanket collection - that's cool!
