Bella and DiDi the Standard Poodles: Who knew June was award season?


We always thought that the beginning of the calendar year was award season. During that time, there are the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Grammy Awards and of course the Academy Awards among others.

However, thanks to our amazing readers and fellow bloggers it appears that June has become the new time of year where awards are given and received. We are so incredibly honored.

The Bassas Blog You Make Me Shine Award









Our dear blog friend Bassa, has given us this award. We happily pass it on to:


Clowie’s Corner

The Ralphie Chronicles

Calliope’s Tablet

One Lovely Blog Award






Dianda who writes Cats & Co. has given us this lovely award. We would like to present it to:

Illuminating Blogger Award









Many thanks to Pickles and company from Nap a Day who kindly gave us this award.

The Illuminating Blogger Award is the creation of CJ at Food Stories – a blog worth visiting. There are a few requirements of winners.

1. The winner should visit the award site and leave a comment indicating that they have been given the award.

2. The winner should thank the blogger that gave the award to them by posting and including a link to their blog.

3. The winner should include a courtesy link back to the official award site:

4. Share one random thing about yourself.

Bella and DiDi: We both like to take morsels of kibble in our mouths, walk away from the bowls about 10 paces and then eat. We then repeat this until the kibble is gone. Our humans call it “travel eating.”

We would like to pass this award on to:

Monica’s Tangled Web

One Sister’s Rant


Dr. Rayya’s Online Veterinary Journal


Very Inspiring Blogger Award






The adorable Misaki presented us with this award. We are happy to know that at least we inspire one being and hope to reach many more. This award requires the winner to share seven things about yourself and pass it along to those you believe are worthy.

Here we go:

1. Bella and DiDi: We take any opportunity to jump up and rest on couches, beds and our lounge chairs.

2. Bella and DiDi: Several months ago, one of our human sisters had a little human. At first we weren’t sure about another human entering the family. However, now we love it when he visits.

3. DiDi: I was given my name because years ago my human sister used to call all canines “DiDis.” When I came around, everyone thought it fit.

4. Bella: My humans were going through an Italian phase when they named me.

5. Bella and DiDi: We like watching Animal Planet.

6. Bella and DiDi: We like to help our humans do laundry. Mainly, we take clean things out of the dryer.

7. Bella and DiDi: We’re happy dogs!

It is our honor, to give this award to:

For the Love of My Dogs

  2. Congrats!! Getting one award thrilled me’ you must be over the moon, or at least howling at it, lol. I still don’t let Lucy, Apollo and Wynonna type, feet are too big, so I do it for them, but they think it’s about time dogs got their due in the blog awards. I agree, you and your human, are most deserving. I don’t suppose you’re near (or passing through on vacation) CT, but we’d love to have you join us to play in our fenced yard. Our humans agree, the more the merrier.

    • Thank you so much! Say hi to Lucy, Apollo and Wynonna for us. Unfortunately, we’re not supposed to pass through CT soon. We would love to have a play date! We’ll let you know if we make it to your neck of the woods. :)

  6. Congratulations on all your awards. Thank you for thinking of us…you are so sweet and thoughtful. We will blog about the award soon. We really enjoy your blog. Hugs and nose kisses

  7. I can’t think of two more deserving dogs (other than Duke, of course, but I admit that I’m completely biased since I’ve known and loved him since he was a puppy!), Congratulations on earning so many awards, and thank you for giving the Reader Appreciation Award to A Grateful Man.


  8. Congratulations on your awards, you deserve them. Some of them are very pretty. Thank you very much for giving one to me – my tail is wagging!
