Friday love and my family tree

why-i-love-thee-award

The first thing I want to tell you is that my friend Sammy (onespoiledcat) gave me the “Why I Love Thee Award” – you can read what he had to say here. As it’s all about love, I thought it would be nice if I wrote about it this week!

The rules are quite straightforward.

First you thank the friend who passed the award to you – thank you very much, Sammy! And link to their blog – see above.

Then if you’re an animal you tell everyone why you love your bipeds, your people. If you’re a biped you tell why you love your animal(s), or why you love animals in general, or anything you like about love. (I added the last two because not all bipeds are lucky enough to have animals living with them.)

Then you pass the award on to at least one other blogger.

Why I love my bipeds

I love my bipeds because they make me happy. They make sure I have everything I need. They spent time socialising and training with me so that I am relaxed and calm – I get to go to all sorts of places with them. I am part of the family and I know they love me and I feel secure. I have been with them since I was a puppy and I have never had to worry about a thing – I wish all animals could be as lucky as I am.

I would like to pass this award to:

A Husky Life

My Family Tree

This is the other thing I want to tell you – Kirby’s Dawg Blog has researched my family tree. There are a few rogues amongst my ancestors and I have links to royalty – the essential ingredients of any family tree!

The post gives a lot of interesting information about Pyrenean Mountain Dogs (Great Pyrenees). There are some fascinating old photographs and a video, so if you haven’t seen it – here’s the link.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Yeah Clowie! Well deserved.
    It’s true isn’t it – if only everyone got a good family – thankful for the straw we drew over here too 🙂

  2. Congrats to you Clowie on your award. You sure do deserve that one. We really like Pyreness but have never been around many of them. We do know that they are great at guarding other animals. A lot of people use them for sheep or goats.

    • Thank you! Our traditional role is protection of flocks, we are naturally protective of our families – but we are sensible about it as long as we are socialised well.

  7. Hi Clowie, Marsa here..
    How are you? I want to inform you that I’ve changed my address of my blog. The new address is :
    taskylonea.com

    I hope you like it because it has changed its appearance. I have added more interesting and useful things such as translation into many many languages (at last, ah?) Now, you can read my news more easily, I hope.
    I’m wagging my tail with joy to you,
    Marsa.

  9. Clowie, I met two of the prettiest Pyrs last week! Soft and calm. I thought of you the entire time I was petting them.

I love reading your comments
