Say what?! Finalist for Best Pet Blog Photo!

“You like me, you really like me!” -Sally Fields (Oscars 1984)BST-PETBLOG-PHOTO-n2n2015-FINALISTbadge

I am beyond words to express how excited we are to be a finalist at the Nose-to-Nose awards again this year! I feel like Sally Fields at the 1984 Oscars; crying and spouting gibberish. And if by chance we do win this year I will probably be completely ridiculous!

 This year we are up for Best Pet Blog Photo for Basil discovers the joy of mudI personally love these photos and I’m so happy they were nominated.

I share this category with these 3 other awesome blogs. Make sure to go check them out!

The Nose-to-Nose awards are held every year at the BlogPaws blogging conference. This year the conference is taking place in the country music capital, Nashville, TN. In 84 short days (We are hoping they are short because we really can’t wait!) Nashville will be over taken with dog/cat/ferret/bird/hippo bloggers and their pets. (Hopefully no hippos!) Along with the awards show the weekend will be packed full of classes, lectures, and socials so bloggers from all over the world can meet & mingle.

Last year was our first BlogPaws conference and it was such a blast. In honor of BlogPaws and throwback Thursday here is a photo of us on the red carpet from last years Nose-to-Nose awards. blogPaws 2014

Now I need to amp up my bow tie making game. This year I am thinking maybe matching bow ties for all of us? We’ll have to wait and see!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday. Have any awesome weekend plans?

The Happiest Dog in the World in the Great State of Texas!

Happy Wednesday all! I thought I would post just a few pictures from our current trip for your “wordless Wednesday” enjoyment. We have been having a ton of fun hanging out with family, enjoying the weather, and just letting Basil go nuts. A lot is happening so I’ll be taking a lot of photos and posting them here soon!
Have you ever seen a happier dog?! Basil pretty much thinks this is the best trip ever!
ps. The Petco Pupcrew boots you see him wearing are amazing! They are protecting Basil soft paws from all the rough terrain here in Texas hill country.
