MOL I received the Doggie Blog Award!!!

Well let me say I, Madi, proudly accept this Doggie Blog Award from Olive.
Why my feline friends are asking?

Well BECAUSE without Doggie Blogs, I, Madi, would not be here!!! First of all, Mom had no clue 
about blogging..then she meet Ms. K and her bunch at Dog Daze  Mom faithfully read all about the adventures of Buddy, Sassy and Zack each day.   Lo and behold, in early Spring 2009,  Ms. K said you and Madi should have a blog??!!  WHAT Mom exclaimed, I can't make a blog.  Well Ms. K said yes you can (that is the teacher in her).  I'm here to answer any questions.   So we jumped in the blogging pond feet first with lots of determination.  Here we are 17 months later blogging our hearts away and loving every minute of it. Over the last year we have met so many puppies and kitties and their two leggers who were very kind and friendly.  Everyone offered lots of help and encouragement and we thank each and everyone of you for your friendship.
The rules are simple:
1.  Say thank you to Olive!!!
2. Name 10 things about us --creative, weird, enticing, etc.
1. You were right Olive, Madi is a dog at heart.  She will eat absolutely anything!!
Most recently she surprised us by eating a dab of baked sweet potato. 
 Her favorite snack is Feline GREENIES...she gets 4 every night at 8 pm and she will remind me!!!
2. Madi has never met a stranger...once she decides to grace them with her presence.
3. Madi doesn't know she is 8 years old and should be cranky...she is full of vim and vigor.
4. She secretly wants to be known as Madi the Chef not Madi the Diva. From her favorite spot just across from the island in the kitchen, she can snoopervise all meal prep....but she never interfers. 
5.  Madi has a darling little patch of gray fur on her back left paw about the size of a medium pen point.
I often try to get a picture but she is very protective of her pet spot.
1. Loves to watch people when she is out and she isn't a stalker. She just finds it interesting to watch people and how they interact with each other.
2. Her favorite weekday lunch sandwich is tuna salad toasted on 7 grain bread from Zoe's Kitchen
with a side dish of Braised white beans she has a 10 gallon  32 oz. refillable Zoe's cup that she always fills up with their delicious iced tea.
3. After last Friday's posting of the ice cream machine, I'm sure no one will be surprised to learn
Mom is an ICE CREAM FREAK. No she does not share because she is selfish says it isn't good for me!!
4. She is an avid reader...she will read anything that does not walk away from her. 
5.  Mom is a die hard fan of The Amazing Race.  Do not call her between 8 and 9 pm on Sunday night unless you are bleeding profusely.

We are supposed to select 10 bloggers to pass this onto but we'll just say if you haven't done it and would like to please feel free.
Madi and Mom

  15. YAY sweet and gorgeous Madi on your award!!!!!!

    We loved reading the facts about you and your mom.

    Mama says if she doesn't forget, when things calm down a bit, she's gonna make you a header with your chef's hat on.


  16. Mmm, sweet potatoo~ Now you got me drooling, Madi!


  17. Congratulations on your awardie, Madi and Mom!

    Oh, Madi! I sure wish you'd let your mom take a picture of your cute little paw spot.

    And here's something else you and Brudder Capn Ripley have in common. Mom and Dad often call him the DogCat. Cuz he luvs people food (although he hardly gets any cuz, well, you saw his picture today, right?), and he'll come when you call him, and he'll even play FETCH! He's actually way better at fetch than either me or Brudder Ranger. Isn't that kooky?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  18. Fun!
    In my family, ice cream has always been considered THE top food group!

  19. Hi Madi!
