Finalist for a Pettie Award for Best Dog Blog – Please Vote!!

Dog_Blog (2)My Pals, I have HUGE news to share with you! is a finalist for a Pettie award in the category of Best Dog Blog. The Petties are annual awards given by DogTime Media to recognize the best of the pet blogging community. Needless to say, we are so excited!

This is better than a walk, a treat, or … gasp … even chasing a cat! We are so honored to even be considered for this amazing award (think of it as the Academy Award for pet bloggers!). We also know that we are only a finalist because of you, all my pals, my readers, my Facebook pals, and my Twitter followers. I would like to give each of you a hug, a tail wag, and a face lick for believing in this little white dog and our blog.

So what happens if I win you ask? Well, I get a really cool trophy to put in my crate with my name on it. Also, more importantly, I will win $1,000 to give to an animal 501(c)3 of my choice. I debated and debated on whom I would give it to if I am lucky enough to win. After much deliberation and talking with the rents, I plan to my blog to learn who I want to give the funds to.

So how do we win? We NEED YOUR HELP! Please get out there and vote for us every day! The voting is open daily until July 31st and requires a Facebook account.

Please go to:

We would also like to suggest some of our pet blogger friends to vote for. Our pal Gracey from The Tiniest Tiger’s Conservation Cub Club is up for Best Blog Post. Also, our friends at are up for an award for best Pet Blog

AGAIN, PLEASE remember to vote every day for your favorite pet bloggers HERE ==>
