In the News: I'm awarded the Sisterhood Award (PLEASE IGNORE PINK SCARF)

Gina Collia-Suzuki has just awarded me with the 'Sisterhood Award'! (Now, obviously she meant to give this award to my mom, so DON'T GET ANY WRONG IDEAS!)

So on my mom's behalf, thank you, Gina! This is quite an honor.

If only my mom wouldn't have taken the award name too seriously and adorned me with a pink scarf! Mayra really has a sadistic sense of humor--don't be fooled by all those sweet children's stories she writes! While she put the scarf on me, my human little sister (her accomplice) took a surprise photo with her cell phone. As soon as we're left alone in the living room without my mom around, I'm going to bully her and cover her new pants with drool. Let's see who'll be the last to laugh.

So, I shall now pass the Sisterhood Award to the following ten lady bloggers I admire (sorry guys, this is a VERY sexist award):

Donna McDine, Write What Inspires You
Shari Lyle-Soffe, Out of My Mind
Margot Finke, Margot Finke's Books for Kids
Dixie Phyllips, From the Heart of Dixie
Lucy Coats, Scribble City Central
Lea Schizas, The Writing Jungle
Cheryl Malandrinos, The Book Connection
April, Cafe of Dreams
Jo Ann Hernandez, BronzeWord
Morgan Mandel, Double M's

These are the rules...

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

Woof! Woof!


  1. Oh, Amigo! You look so fetching in your pink scarf... quite the dandy. I bet, if the lady woofs were to see you in that, they'd be lining up outside your front door... and they'd bring treats. Maris the rat said that if she were a woof, and about twenty rat-years younger, she'd give you a call.

  2. well, if you say so... (blushing)

  3. Rascal thinks the Sisterhood Award was meant for her, since this is a pet blog. We'll have to fight over it. I wonder if I have any fancy scarves around?

  4. Hope you don't have to cleanup too much drool. Thanks for the award.

    Best wishes,

  5. I think Amigo looks good in the scarf!

    I've also been given the WOOFER AWARD


    :-) I know you haven't earned that award yet Mayra.... HA! You look sooo young and beautiful! :-)

  7. Thanks, Mayra. Sisters are Doin' it For Themselves--and never more so than now! Have been a bit AWOL on both blogs lately (been away) but More Good Stuff next week...

  8. Oh, and PS, Willow says if I EVER put him in a pink scarf he will bite me in the bum. I merely act as amanuensis. His words not mine. I would never use bum.

  9. Love the pet stories. Amigo has quite a personality.

  10. Thank you soooo much for this honor!! I am so very very thrilled. You are the greatest! I will get it posted and blogged about. I LOVE the picture/button!!!
