Awards, Awards, Awards...

Thursday, January 17, 2008

So Mom is bummed. You see this whole writer's strike has gotten her down. Oh sure John and Stephen are back and that makes her happy, but this is her playoff season, the Oscars her SuperBowl. If Sunday's Golden Globes press conference is any indication of what she has to look forward too...well, I'll be in for a lot of whining (Ruby's Mom: I haven't been whining!!! Ruby: Oh, yes you have!).

Why I bring this up is because my Mom needs to look no further than right next to her. That's right that cute little dog, with the purple ball in her mouth is the winner of not one but two awards recently! W00t!! I've been a little remiss in mentioning them, so I'm really sorry, but here they are...

From Marvin, Maya & Kena, Harry & Cassidy and Bogart I got this...

I make their day!!! Well pups, you make mine too and so does...Mack, Clover, Tucker and the rest of the Brat Pack, diva girl Lola and the rest of the Jackman pups, Peanut & Flash, Sitka & Tia, Joey & Tanner, Maggie & Mitch and little Petra! All you pups make my day, everyday!!!

The next award I got was from Joe Stains...

In his introduction of me I believe he said that I make him think of "spunky Boston Babes". Now that is something...I think I'm blushing a little ;) This is a very cool award!!!

The rules attached to this award are:

1. You must write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Acknowledge this post.
3. Optional - proudly display the Thinking Blogger Award with a link to the post that you wrote.

So who makes me think? Let me think, let me think...

Stanley & Stella
, Marvin and Jeannie, Bella the Boxer, Asta (I know she already won, but she definitely makes me think), and of course Sir Chance.

Actually to me...every pup on DWB is a winner in my book...heck, who needs those other silly awards shows, right?

On to other things, don't forget about all our Aire Ruby adventures coming up. Of course there is the SuperBowl party and Koobie's Valentine's Pawty in the Poconos. I think Scruffy is playing poker this weekend and there is one super secret, extra-special trip both Sitka and I are planning. I'll tell you all about that tomorrow...but just a little hint... pack for the sun!!! For any of these trips, just leave me a comment about which trip and how many and I will save you a spot!!!

And finally...thanks for all the kind words and thoughts about Suki. I really, really miss her and will make sure to pass along all your messages! And I leave you with this because after all, it is my blog...

Thanks everypup, hammie, coyote and kittie for being my friend and putting up with me being a little slow visiting your sites lately. I woof you all!

Congrats on your awards!!!

Momo & Pinot

pee ess: Do you know if Oscar will be aired?!? (Note: This is a question from our mom to your mom! :D)

Bella the Boxer said... 6:22 PM

Ruby, we TOTALLY think alike! I can't believe you mentioned Tom Cruise. I was ready to mock him for his stature (and his latest antics) but my Mom made me erase my blog post 'cuz she thought I was being the Jack Russell. Ha, ha. But I appreciate that you understood where I was going with that post! Now I'll get busy passing along that tag...

xoxo - Bella

Thank you so much, Ruby, for the award you gave me! Can you believe I got the same award from Suki and you at the same time?! I will treasure it always.

I would love to come to the Valentine's Party! Valentine's Day is Motch & PA's anniversary, but I'm sure they won't mind if I go to a party & leave them behind for awhile.

Hey Ruby!

Nice awards! Just plain wonderful! Can I reserve TWO FIRST CLASS seats for MY Putter Girl and I to the Poconos? She and I are kinda a "thing"...

I can't wait!

Love, Hercules

G'day Ruby,
There are so many pawtys happening we're getting confused.
We would love to book 5 tickets for the Poconos, Koobies Pawty.
I'm really excited cause my girl Ellie said she'd come with me. Naturally my sissies want to come too......sigh. Thanks.

Hugs and tail wags

oh dear sweet Ruby! No worries about being late with your comments, I have had to BARK loudly at my Jeannie 'cos she has been neglecting my Blog just lately.

I would love to come to the Pawty, please reserve me a place, you know where I live, I will be waiting with my suitcase.....on the drive.

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Stanley said... 7:21 AM

Oh, Ruby Bug!

My aunt Kelly (my girl's sissy) came for the weekend and we were so busy giving her booties to scratch and bellies to rub that I'm just now catching up on everything from the weekend!

You are a most deserving award winning pupgirl! I am so proud.

Thanks for the thinking blog award. I'm not questioning your judgement, but I didn't know if we really make people think all that much (but we're stinkin' excited to accept this award)!

Have fun at the beach!

Goober love & lots of smooches,
