Better, Awards and Contest

     Hi, everyone! It's ME, Nola back on the blog! I'm feeling much better; I'm ordering around the minions, stealing toys, looking at myself in the mirror (Dachshund Mommy: I swear to you, she really was), barking, following Mom and acting about 85% back to normal. I'm still a little tired, but I'm eating again. It's not my normal amount, maybe half of what I normally eat but at least I'm showing interest in food! Thank y'all so much for all your well wishes and crossed paws, they helped so much.

Thank you for the POTP!

     I've gotten not one, but TWO awards! First off is probably my favorite, just because of the name, from my handsome little furiend Higgins! Thanks, my furiend! May I present to you, the prestigious Devious, Clever, Genius Blog award (finally, an award that perfectly describes ME!)


     I must pass this award on to 5 other bloggers. That's tough, but here we go!

  1. Two Collies and a Mutt
  2. The Furries of Whisppy
  3. Wiener Tales/All The Small Stuff
  4. Spotty, Spotty, Polkadotty
  5. My BBFF(Beautiful Best Furiend Furever) Lily Belle

     The second award is from Tucker of Tucker Tells All and it is the One Sweet Blog award. Thanks, Tucker!

     The rules state to pass this award on to 5 other bloggers, but since I'm lazy I pass both of these awards on to the blogs listed above.

     I have a furry exciting announcement to make! I'm hosting my furry first contest! A Halloweenie costume contest!
It's part of The Dog Halloween Contest hosted by and runs till Nov. 1st, upon where I will choose 1 winner and post everyone's photos for y'all to see. The prize is a $25 gift card to Target so your peeps can get something for YOU!
Not only that, but after my contest is over everyone's photos will go to the main contest page here where you can vote for your favorite (promoting your picture on your blog/Facebook/Twitter is fine!) and the pup with the most votes wins a $500 Target gift card! It's a win-win.
It's fun to dress up!

     How do you enter? Easy! Just shoot me an email with a picture of you (or you and your siblings/minions) wearing your best costume! Send it to and I'll reply letting you know I got it.
Please include in your email:

  • Your name and the names of any dog in your photo
  • Your breed or breed mix, gender and age
  • Your blog addy
  • What you're dressed as

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
