Dozer Gave us An Award!

Our pal, Dozer, gave us an award! We convinced Grammy that now she HAD to let us do a post! Besides, she’s been sick for so long and is starting to feel better now, but there is no TELLING when she will ever get things “caught up” and let us start posting regularly. We are working on convincing her to try letting us do some Wordless Wednesday and Silent Saturday posts at least. We miss all of you SO MUCH!!!!

Apparently one must share 7 things about yourself as part of accepting this award. There are so many of us that we will have to see how this works out. We have decided that each of us will put down four things, so here goes…


(1) I’m almost 12 years old… only two months more.

(2) I’m in a wheelchair now to support my hind end, and may soon have to go into one to support my whole body since my shoulder is starting to have problems.

(3) I do NOT like Sadie, the Border Collie that lives here! (This is no big secret for those who have known us for sometime.)

(4) I do NOT think it is fair that I can’t go out on squirrel patrol anymore, and let EVERYONE know about it during the whole time the rest are outside. I’m beginning to think they’ve changed my name to “SHUT UP, OC!”


(1) I’m 4 and a half years old, and BG stands for Bud’s Grandson.

(2) I’m a helper dog for Grammy and pick things up for her from the floor so she doesn’t have to bend down so much since that hurts her back and hip. (if I can beat Sadie and Gimli to them.)

(3) I LOVE my Dad, and spend most of every evening on HIS lap!

(4) I’ve been having trouble convincing Gimli that I am top male dog in this family!

Little Dott

(1) I have taken over as the Alpha Dog in this household even though I am the smallest. They ALL listen to ME, and I can usually break up fights by putting myself in between whoever is fighting (unless it’s a bunch of them fighting and my Dad won’t LET me stop them!)

(2) I’m the mother of four pups, three of which live here with us in Corgi Country. They are ALL much bigger than me.  Here is a three generation "girl" picture.

(3) I’ve got all the humans in this household TOTALLY wrapped around my little dew claw!

(4) I’m very literary and have written and published a book, AND have my OWN facebook page with 597 people following me!


(1) I am 16 months old and was the firstborn of Mama Dott’s litter. I am the biggest of all the pups. (What do you think of my smile?)

(2) I had an infection for several months that made me lose most of the muscles in my head until it looked like a skeleton. It also thickened my nose and jaw some, so I look a little different than the other corgis, especially since my sister, Mercy, is an ear assassin and BROKE one of my ears down. Grammy loves me anyway, though!

(3) I am very smart and am learning very quickly how to be a helper dog for Grammy. This, sometimes causes some problems because I try to pick up things she drops and so does Uncle BG at the same time and then we get upset at each other.

(4) Since I am bigger, I think that I should be top male, and Uncle BG and I are having some major discussions about this!


(1) I’m the same age as Gimli and Pippin, was the second pup born, was one of two girls, and have an “angel” with outstretched wings marking on the back of my neck, so Dad (Robert) called me Mercy… as in the angel of Mercy.

(2) I was BORN an alpha dog, and have no place to put my “alpha-ness” which tends to make me grouchy.

(3) Dad has decided to say I am “smiling” and “purring” when around the other dogs. I DO love my Dad, Grammy and Papa, and my Uncle BG, and generally get along fairly well with Mama Dott.

(4) I HAVE learned to do “high fives” and give “kisses,” but, like Mama Dott, I am NOT a servant and refuse to do things that might make people think I am!!!


(1) I was third born, and am smaller than any of the other pups… almost as small as Mama Dott!

(2) I’m Papa’s dog, and LIVE for him and his return from work. I will even leave my dinner if he is going to bed, so Grammy often has to bring it into the bedroom for me to finish if she forgets and feeds us late.

(3) Everyone says that I am “a bit hyper…” This is NOT true. I just don’t like to be still (unless it is on Papa’s lap.)

(4) I LOVE my Unca BG and try to do everything he does… at least in regards to Papa… not Grammy, though she IS pretty good about treats!

We would like to pass this award onto some friends of ours, but since we’ve been off of here for so long, we don’t know who has already gotten it and who hasn’t. Since ALL the blogs we follow are so “Stylish” and interesting, feel free to pick it up for your blog if you don’t already have it, and thanks again, Dozer for giving it to us (and "figuratively" kicking Grammy in the tush so she would let us post again!)

PS:  We just heard some bad news about our friend, Twix!  She is very sick and needs prayers and possible ideas as to what is wrong as the vets are stumped at this time.  You can go to her blog to read about it HERE!

What about the hapless Sadie? Doesn't she get to share too? Nice to get to know you all better. Quite the pack of personalities.
