Truthful Tuesday

I am the first to admit I am a poor receiver and undeserving of all the great awards that you wonderful bloggers have bestowed on me since I began blogging in December of last year. I did not display them because I was unappreciative but because I was in the process of learning and I shamefully confess that I didn't know how to do it. (head hanging low).

So here I am trying to turn over a new leaf. I want to start displayin' some of the cool awards I get by dogs who choose to blog about themselves and their pack. Each and every one of you who stop by are special and your comments give me great pleasure to read. So thanks to all, whether you've awarded me or not.

Sad as it is, I do not remember who gave me this "You're a Gem" award but I gotta start somewhere. I saved it hoping to get around to displayin' it but forgot to save the sender of it. So whoever you are, thanks! It is a very nice award, although "You're a Germ" is more likely how it should be stated.

Second on my list may seem distasteful to some but it is one I will display proudly for it says so much about me. It is the Oops! I ate it award from Coco the Chihuahua. The Oops is only to try and convince 2 leggers of my innocence. Sadly it may take much more than that, I'm afraid.

Part of this award is to confess to things I have eaten. I'm supposin' that means stuff I shouldn't have eaten, but did anyway. This was very hard to narrow down and took some serious self-relfection. This is what came quickly to mind:

Socks, underwear, pen, pencil, un-frosted cake, gum on the floor at Lowe's, cigarette butts, raccoon poop, baby birdies, my own bandana, Mom's shirt, the oven mitt (ya can't eat just one!), stones, tulips, daisies, sticks, soybeans, corn, green beans (outta the bucket Dad was snippin' them in), grocery lists, receipts, tissues, meat wrappers outta the garbage can, newspapers.......................... The list could go on and on, as you can surely see. I think you get the idea though that nothin' is safe around me. So thanks, Coco for this award which allows me to confess my eatin' crimes. It also asks that I pass this on to 5 other of my dog friends. It's so hard for me to decide so feel free to snag it-just like you would a tasty morsel-and throw it on your blog for all the world to see if you so desire.

There it is, my first attempt to start showin' my appreciation to the folks who think of me when handing out awards. Bear with me as I hope to do better in the future. Now I'll see if I can manage to get them displayed on my side bar.
*Mom is technically challenged and is no help whatsoever.

That's it for today. I'm gonna trot on down the road now.

Just fired up my computer for the day and saw your new blog post!

Cocorue is right, it's never too late to show appreciation. And this post is a lovely start! I'll look forward to reading more as you sort out all the wonderful (and deserving, I'm sure) Blog Awards you've received in your relatively short blogging career.

Hugs to you and your mom!

YD, sometimes with Samantha & June said...

Congrats on your awards Chester.
You've got quite a list of things you ate...bet you didn't eat $100 bills. I(Samantha) ate 3 of them!

This is great news! I just sent 500 e-mail messages to cat bloggers asking them to tag you.

Enjoy! :P

Stella said...

OK, Chester, check out that last comment from your future brother-in-law/father-in-law. Scarey enough for you?

I rest my case.


Holly said...

Congrats, Big Brown. Well deserved we say. Fiona & Rory send congratulatory, "Aroos!"

Budrow Wilson Spain said...

Oh Chester my friend, all the awards are very well deserved! We get great joy out of reading your adventures. My confession is that I have a nasty habit of eating cigarette butts everywhere I go. Once I ate an entire x-large over flowing ashtray at the recording studio my two-legger takes me to once in a while. She gets soooo mad at me when I eat them! I try to be sly about it but my poop rats me out each and every time! I will have to look into the raccoon poop as that sound tasty! Thanks for the great stories!!

Congrats on the awards!!!!

My secty is doubled over in pain, laughing - at the post, at the commentary. Sorry we haven't visited in a while, but we do follow up on your hijinks at FB. Man! Your coat is bootiful in that picture! Anyhoo, just want to say that I think you do great with your blog and forgiveness come naturally from us doggies! Love your answers on the "oops" and I just got tagged with it and just may outdo you - OMD! But you definitely rock with all that yumzers stuff.
