Awards and more....

OMDogness do I look mad in this picture? Well that's because I am, I don't know if it's our internet or blogger but we are having such a hard time posting and commenting on our friends blogs lately. Blogger needs to stop being a pain in the butt!

Anyways, now for our regularly scheduled post. First up is Awards we got awhile back and have taken us forever to post.
This award was given to us by Oisin the pug. Thank you Oisin.

This next award was given to us by Arlo the pug. Thanks Arlo.

The terms for this award are to share 5 things we like to do.

Swisher's List:

1. I like to eat!
2. I like to sleep on my sleeping bag.
3. I like to bark my head off at the gardner.
4. I like to water plants.
5. I like to snore really loud.

Oakley's List:

1. I like to cuddle with humans on the couch.
2. I like to play with my brother.
3. I like to chase tennis balls.
4. I like to chew on nylabones.
5. I like to snore REALLY loud.

We would like to pass on these awards to any blog buddy who doesn't have them yet.

So as you may have read a few posts ago we are playing Paw it Forward. So our mom did some shopping and we are sending a package to our buddy Mack and his sisters. We won't show everything we are sending so that they will be surprised and they can blog about it.

One thing we will show is the treats we are sending because they are our favorite. Sweet Potato and Fish...yummm! Mack we shipped it today so be on the look out for the post man.

We didn't get a lot of players for our Paw it Forward because we think most of our blog buddies have already played. While mom was out shopping she saw this...

In our local weekly paper they had this cute doggy on the cover with the title "Feed the Need". Mom picked it up to read the article, but there wasn't really an article to read. Inside the paper they chose about 70 non-profit community organizations that need help raising money especially in these hard times. The organization acquainted with the cover picture was Animal Friends Rescue Project. They are a non-profit organization that helps animals. The paper is accepting donations and whichever organization we choose to donate to they will match our donation. So as part of our Paw it Forward we are donating some $$ to AFRP so that doggies without a home will be safe this holiday season. She was glad the paper decided to put this cute guy on the cover because as it got her attention she knows it will grab others and all the organizations will hopefully get the help they need.

Oakley wanted to do his part by sealing the envelope.

After getting our packages together we did a little Christmas decorating. We have a little tree because mom says she doesn't trust us with a big one. How rude! We have our stockings up with our names on them. This way Santa Paws can fill them up with the good stuff we each like.

We are sorry about the LOOONG post but since we have blogger cooperating we must take advantage.

We hope everyone is having a great week.

Lots of Licks--

Swisher and Oakley
