Swine and Cheese!

I am a bit down in the dumps. It has been busy around here. I've had to blog about the first 100 days (speaking of which, did you see me on the cover of the New Yorker?)

And then there was a SWINE FLU outbreak where my ma ape works and she didn't even get off work! I had to be alone all day! Well, with the peppy sheppys. But they're worse than swine flu.


I'm doing my part to help by eating the pig ears. I will eat the virus, I will eat it up!

I've been feeling a bit poorly, heart-wise, so this is a picture to summarize my week:

BUT! There is one bright ray of light. My bud Mango--who shares my affinity for ape stuffies and has to tolerate an obnoxious labradude brudder just like me--gave me an award! Thanks Mango Man!

Here's what it sez!

“This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it’s return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can’t wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a “Paw”some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award!”

Here are my four friends!

Moose! He's an awesome lab who sometimes fosters labby friends--even when they eat all his toys-- and always has AWESOME pictures and good stories to tell. ETA: Moose's foster brudder TeddyNo! got adopted this week! Ha-roooo!

Marvin! Marvin is one of my oldest blogging friends and he and Jeanne always have great adventures and deep thoughts. And great tunes! And pomes! Marvin is a renaissance man! Also, he looks like my sissy.

Ike! Another oldie but goodie friend. He and his mom have really big hearts and just adopted and then lost a very sick cat. Ike, in addition to being really nice, is SUPER DUPER funny and always has new fart stories.

StanMan! Stan's an old friend too. I have a lot of old friends. While i am giving him the award he might as well share it with Stella too (hi Stellanator!). And Merv. And his GoobMaster mom who is TOTES COOL and always tells me how cute I am.

Picking just four friends is hard. Thanks for the award, Mango! You saved my week.

Hi, Wally!
Do you think if I eat a pig ear that swine flu will go away?? I can do that! (if I find a pig ear of course!)
Congratulations on your award!
Kisses and hugs

Dearest Wally, my old pal. Thank you so much for your kind award, and congratulations on receiving yours too! Definitely very appropriate that you should receive such an honour!

I am quite the blushing Marvin this morning, after reading your kind words.

I do hope your heart problems don't prevent you from chewing a great deal more pig's ears. We need to keep on top of this bloomin' virus. I also hope your Ma Ape is ok, we have three cases in the next town down the river from here, it is such a worry!

lotsalicks, from your friend, Marvin xxxxx oh and love from Jeannie too.

ps we will post about the award shortly! Pig Willing!

Take good care of yourself. We would be so not in a good mood if anything happened to you.

ooooh Merv. I love Merv. Oops. Did I say that out loud. Wally! Don't worry baby. I am not flirting with any god damn cats, nor am I having a secret affair with any god damn cats. Sorry for that shock. I don't want to jolt your heart at all. I am sending giant hugs and cuddles for your heart to make it feel better.

Wally: We are Diss Dressed to hear that your wise old heart has not been feeling well, and hope to hear better news soon. Try not to eat that grass at the White House. We have always thought it was too green to be true.

I am sorry to hear your ticker is giving you issues buddy. I hope it kicks back in gear soon and you are feeling ok. More pigs ears would probably help.
