Blog Of The Year, 2012.

Hi, yes it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!  We have been honoured with having the, "Blog Of The Year, 2012", forwarded onto to me and okay, my human, Gary.   We wish to thank Teresa and her very talented writing dog, Indy, who can be found at this site, A Likely Story.

Okay, there seems to be some kind of rules to go with this award.  So here they are.

1: Choose the blog(s) you consider to be deserving of the "Blog Of The Year, 2012", award.

2: Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen and 'present' them with their award.

3: Please include a link back to this page, Blog Of The Year, 2012 Award.  and include these 'rules' in your post (please don't alter the rules or the badges.)

4: Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the 'rules' with them.

5: You can also join the Facebook Group .     

6:  As a winner of the award, please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award.  Then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar.  Then you can start collecting stars.

Anyway, I'm now totally confused.  I just hope that by following the above links, you can figure this all out.  I think I will finish this and go for a well deserved doggy nap.  Oh yes, I'm supposed to tell you about the blog or blogs I have chosen and tell you all about them, or something like that.  I'm also supposed to let them or one person, or animal, know I have actually bestowed this here award to them.  Excuse me while I catch my breath.  Wow, I just watched my breath float around the room and now I've caught it....

It's a very difficult choice to pass on this award.  There are so many amazing blogs and the interaction from you is warmly embraced.  You are all superstars in the blogging world.  So here's what I'm going to do.  There is one young fellow who inspires so many with his informative, wonderfully written and heartfelt postings.  Many of you will know what I mean about this remarkable young man.  Several of us put up birthday tributes for this young blogger who has touched so many hearts.

And thus, it gives me and my human, great privilege on bestowing this award to Lenny Lee.  If you've never visited Lenny, you can find him here,  Lenny's World .  I know how much it would mean to him if you went and said "hi" and wished our terrific young buddy, "A Merry Christmas".

  12. Dear Penny, please get your human over to the computer. I want him to be there for you should you need support.
    Is he there? Good. OK. First of all, congrats on your award.
    I have been wanting to contact you for awhile now but didn't know what exactly to say to soften the blow. Here goes. In America we have an actually TV show called, "Dog with a Blog." It's OK Penny! Go pee on the rug so you can relax a bit. Hopefully your human has already given you a treat to soften the blow.
    I want you to know that neither I or my human have watched this show. We feel it would be rude and disloyal. But we wanted to tell you before you heard it somewhere else. Love, Maggie. My human has been calling me Maggie Maggot. Why?

    1. Hi Maggie!

      Okay, I dragged my human, kicking and screaming from his bed. Human Gary, read the comment.
      He thanks you rather shyly, for the congrats on the award. He knows that I'm the true genius on this site.
      I went and reluctantly checked that "Dog with a Blog" and I can safely say that I've nothing to worry about. It's my human that's jealous of the silly dog in that show.

      You are Maggie Mae! Tell your human that! Arf! Arf!

  23. Any "AWARD" that comes with its own set of rules and requirements is not an award as much as it is another hoop to jump through. Penny, do not go near the hoop!!!

    Any award deserving of being given to a truly brilliant person (and canine) as yourself, has NO silly list of requirements.

    Take it, post it, enjoy it, and ignore the orders. (or let me make you a really good one)

    1. Hi lotta joy,

      You really should read some of our past cynical postings that relate to awards. I made it abundantly clear to our young buddy, he need not follow on with the rules. I don't give a crap about the rules and the whole thing does smell of self-promotion by those that set it up.

      However, in the spirit of receiving the award and the sincere meaning of forwarding it onto a remarkable young man, is what I endeavour to do. It's as simple as that.

      I have an award that I send out every once in a while. It has no silly rules, no stipulations to link back to me. It is a positive award that embraces the ideals of the unconditional, non-judgemental love we animals share.

      So, I ignore the rules and just get on with it. Now then, the important thing here is that we celebrate a very brave and caring young man named Lenny.

I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
