Hello Handsome…

Basil is so modest. Just look at that face. It just screams “Don’t look at me… Wait, don’t look away!”

"Are you talking about me?!"
“Are you talking about me?!”
"Oh no, stop."
“Oh no, stop.”
"Actually no, go on!"
“Actually no, go on!”

This is also a little sneak peak of Basil upcoming Outfit of the day series that starts October 1st. We’ll post daily OOTD’s of all of Basil’s adorable doggie wears.

How is your week going? Is your dog this “humble?”

Travel well, nap well, live well!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! 

Waking up this morning we still can’t believe it! Saturday night, at the Nose to Nose awards for the BlogPaws conference 2015, we won the best pet photo award for the picture below.

 We were up against some hard competition but Basil’s cuteness prevail! Although we were unable to attend the conference this year we were able to watch it streaming live on YouTube.

I want to thank BlogPaws for this award and everyone that reads this blog and loves my dog, we are truly thankful!

Now to start planning for the 2016 BlogPaws conference being held in Phoenix, AZ. Xoxo

Throwback Thursday – BlogPaws Conference 2014

Today all of our fellow pet blogger friends are gathered in Nashville, TN for the 2015 BlogPaws conference. We really wish we could have been there this year but the cross country move just didn’t make it possible.

For throwback Thursday I thought I would post a few of our favorite photos from last years conference in Las Vegas, NV.  BlogPaws 2015 Las Vegas, NV BlogPaws 2015 Las Vegas, NV BlogPaws 2015 Las Vegas, NVAlthough we are missing the conference this year we will still be able to watch the Nose-to-Nose award show online, which we are nominated for an award in the Best Photo category. If you want to watch the award show along with us you can find the live stream here, starting at 7pm CST on Saturday May 30th.

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?
