Thinking Bloggers? Us? Must Ponder That!!

We are so honored!! Our whippet friends and their thoughful servant gave us this "thinking blogger award" for our egret-inspired interpretation of Edgar Allan Paw's famous pawm about a different bird (aka The Raven).

We admit it, that pawm was a challenge; but now we face a greater challenge: what do two wire fox terriers and two hard-working humans who live in a two-story townhouse crammed to the rafters with STUFF do with a petulant, moody, often hungry, somewhat unreliable bird?

We shall see. For the moment, he's been fishing in the lakes on the adjacent golf course. And we're not sure if this is a coincidence or not, but last night Mom and Dogdad had steamed mussels for dinner and today they're having shrimp scampi for lunch and grilled salmon for dinner. Something smells fishy, don't you think?

And that brings us back to the subject of this blog: thinking.

Here are the rules attached to this award:
1. You must write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think. (No fish or bird blogs, they'll just make you hungry)
2. Acknowledge this post.
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.
4. Go tell your humans to fork over the treats!

We have lots of very thoughtful friends, so it's kind of hard to decide who should share this award next, but here goes:

First, to our new friend, Blue, who has opened our eyes to the wonderful land of Dreamingspires and who always has something interesting to tell us!!

Second, to our old friends the Doodle's - Celestial Nigel, Ms. Gimlet Rose, Sammy, and yes, Joe the Cat who always make us think about important and controversial things, such as Google ads that lead to puppy mills, the dark side of organizations that pretend to be pro-animal, but that really do pretty despicable things, and other subjects we may prefer not to think about.

Third, to another friend from across the Atlantic, Pippa, who has opened our eyes to what it means to live on the streets before coming in from the cold to a loving family.

Fourth to Zorra, Katie, and Sam, who made us think that dogs with a mission can do anything -- even find a flighty egret.

And finally, fifth, to Ms. Sophie La Brador, who has made us think about lovely ladies in a very special way!!!

We're not too sure we've added the links correctly -- so we shall personally visit each of these thinking pals' blogs to tell them about this award.

And in the meantime, thank you again, whippets, and does anyone have a recipe for fish stew?

Jake and Just Harry

Whoops, after posting, we realized that both Blue and Pippa have already been given this award. Does that mean some [great?] thinkers think alike? Or that some [would-be?] thinkers weren't paying sufficient attention?? Hope the awardees don't mind!

Hi guys,

Congratulations on the award! It is well-deserved.

Sounds like you guys get many delicious and healthy meals. Do you have to have an egret in order to eat like you do? If so, where can I get one?

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Stanley said...

Congratulations, Buds!

You two ALWAYS make me think, and you totally deserve the award. Your choices for passing on the award are also very appropriate!

Goober love,
