As you know I don’t accept Awards anymore, but this one I could not pass up! How cute is this Photo! 🙂

Bestowed upon me from the beautiful Ivonne at http:ivonnemontijo.wordpress.comthe-missy-award

The  Missy Award is presented to those bloggers who support and advocate for animals either in the blog as a whole or a blog post.  They can be animal lovers, vegetarian,vegan, rescue workers, doesn’t matter it’s all about the animals.

The Rules are:

1- You must post the Award Picture onto your blog–but who doesn’t love putting award pictures on their blog?!!!
2- Link back to
3-And answer two questions.

A- What inspires or motivates you to write?
Feelings that drift through my mind on any given moment of the day (or sadly) the night when sleep does not occur, words are frantically written into my phone under the covers, like a teenager sending messages to her boyfriend. Anything will inspire my desire to write. Songs, words, photos, conversations. It is something, possibly inbred in me and I know not why, but I cherish the gift of words, of imagination of being able to bare my soul on paper,  no matter what the subject. To have a site for my ramblings such as this (WP) is something I also cherish, for this has given me my outlet, to air my thoughts and to share my words.

B- Why do you love animals?
Because they are simply the most beautiful and devoted creatures on this planet. Their love is unconditional. They deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. Cruelty of any nature abhors me. I have loved animals,  particularly dogs and horses ever since I can remember. I shall continue to love and support when I can, those that are need of human help or intervention. We need to eradicate dog-fights, bear-fights, cock-fighting. The thrill for man to watch animals tearing each other apart sickens me. If you wish to visit this Post  There has to be an End,  for a more detailed explanation of why I feel this way. To our fur-babies – the ones still crying out for help, you will be heard. The ones that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, mum will see you again one day and to those that you have as part of your family be grateful everyday for the joy that bring you.

4-Nominate other worthy bloggers or just simply accept the award and do #’s 1-3

My nominations (other than those nominated in Ivonne’s Post) are:-

I nominate – for her love of dogs.
I nominate – for her beautiful photos of animals (puppies!!) in her posts.
I nominate – for recently adopting Benny – See her Post – How I trusted a perfect stranger.

5- Oh yes, please let your nominees know you nominated them.

Thank you Ivonne for also recently adopting two puppies , saving them from crossing the Rainbow Bridge  -xxx 🙂

One Lovely Blog Award – from Irish Katie


BANNER – Has disappeared off this Post- Aprologies

To be sure …to be sure  (No I had no idea) I thought I would try to get that resonant Irish tone in there somehow.
