Isn’t She LovelyPosted: August 4, 2017 Filed under: Dogs I Like, People I Like, Things I Like | Tags: Awards, Blogging, Dogs, Golden Retriever, Harper Lee, One Lovely Blog Award, Pet Photography, Pets, Tallulah, Thek9harperlee 33 Comments
Several weeks ago, my friend Mia from It’s a Pibble’s Life! nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I cannot thank her enough. Mia is an amazing girl. She lives in Vancouver with her humom and her furbrother, Keiko. Click here to pay Mia a little visit. You’re likely to find her playing in the ocean or racing through the forest. I’ve decided to delegate the duties associated with this award to my little sister, Tallulah. This is a really big deal. It’s her first time to speak on my blog. She just has to do two things: 1) Tell us seven things about herself and 2) nominate 15 bloggers to receive the award. Sounds simple, right? You obviously don’t know my little sister, but here goes.
Seven Facts About Me, Tallulah Bee
1. I am a super happy girl. Ok, before I get started, let me just say Wow! I’m blogging! Sissy’s finally letting me speak! Ok, enough of that. I better get serious before she pulls the plug on this little experiment. Where was I? Oh, that’s right. I am a super happy girl. I mean just look at my smile. I’m always smiling and my tail is always wagging.
2. I have a lot of nicknames. My registered name is Rhythm’s Tallulah Bee for Harper Lee. That’s kind of a lot to say, so humans just call me Tallulah. Unless I’m in trouble. And then my human mommy calls me Tallulah Bee, which to me sounds like “Stop it now!” But when I’m being good (which, for the record, is most of the time), my humans call me Bee, Buzzy Bee, Woo Bee, Bee Girl, Bubba, Bubba Bee, and Bubz.
3. I love to watch television. Actually, I love to watch video on anything–televisions, computers, smartphones, anything. I especially like to watch animals, but I also enjoy sporting events and pharmaceutical commercials with little cartoon-like characters. Now you’re going to be looking for those, aren’t you?
4. I’m rather fond of human beds. Technically, I’m not allowed on human beds. But sometimes I just can’t help myself. And when I do take the forbidden leap? Well, I’m just so super cute that the humans give in. Unless the bed is freshly made, and then that’s another story.
5. When it comes to food, I’m a bit of a pig. I have a tendency to inhale my meals, so I have this fancy pink bowl that slows me down. Very slightly.
6. I have a drinking problem. Not that kind of drinking problem, sillies. I mean I am not a neat drinker. And I drink gallons of water, so you’d think I’d be better at it. But I’m not. I kind of forget to swallow, and then water runs out of my mouth. Everywhere. Sorry about that, Mommy.
7. I love my big sister with all of my heart. Harper Lee has been the best big sister ever. She’s been patient and kind, and she always looks out for me. I love sleeping right next to her. And sometimes on her.
And my nominees for the One Lovely Blog Award are . . .
It said up there in the rules that I’m supposed to nominate 15 bloggers for this award. Hey. I’m just a puppy. (Ok, I’m two, but Mommy says we’re using that puppy excuse until I’m three.) I have a short attention span. Fifteen is a big number. How about if I just do eight? That’s more than half, right? And how about if I tell my nominees that they aren’t obligated to follow all of those silly award rules unless they want to. I just want them to know that I’m really happy that my big sister introduced me to them and I really like what they do.
Cast Light — This blog reminds us that we can we choose to “cast shadows” (gossip, complaints, cynicism) or to “cast light” (enthusiasm, encouragement, generosity). Golden Retriever Abby and Samoyed Sasha make the occasional appearance.
Gardens for Goldens — Escape to the beauty of the Memorial Garden at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary and meet the people and dogs who make it such an enchanting place.
Golden Kali — Golden Retriever Kali lives with her little sister Kloe, also a Golden, in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California. Hey, kind of sounds like my big sister and me, except we live below sea level in South Louisiana.
Home Sweet Home Wyoming — Check out the big blue skies and meet cute pups Bear and Sammy.
Peace With My Life: Comfort and Compassion Out of Chaos — From time to time, we’re all surrounded by a bit of chaos (you should see my living room when I decide to take all the toys out of the toy basket), so it’s nice to know where you can go for a little peace, comfort, and compassion. And you’ll get to meet a cute pup named Jazz.
Piglove — Meet Bacon, the cutest, funniest little piggy ever. And follow the adventures of the whole Hotel Thompson gang. Warning: You will definitely laugh.
Saving Sammie: An Adoption Story — Follow the adventures of sisters Sammie (a German Shepherd) and Emma (a Doodleman Pinscher). And these girls have two cats. Not so sure that would work at my house. Haha!
Tails Around the Ranch — Sam and Elsa are Standard Poodles. Sam does pet therapy at a large hospital and hospice center and Elsa is his pesky sister who gets into trouble. Hmmmmm, sounds familiar.
So, if you choose, here are the One Lovely Blog Award rules:
- Thank the person (or dog) that nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
- List the rules.
- Display the award on your post.
- List seven facts about yourself.
- Nominate 15 bloggers (give or take) for this award and comment on one of their posts to let them know you have nominated them.
But feel free to ignore the rules. I do it all the time. And have a fabulous weekend!
Love, Tallulah Bee
Miss Bee, it was very nice to get to know you a bit. And yes, you are definitely still a pup at 2. You made me a LOL with the water running back out of your mouth. It must be hard to think about something and remember to swallow at the same time. 🙂
You nailed it. 🙂 Who has time to think about swallowing when there are other things like treats and toys to get to. That’s why we have humans to mop up the dribbles. Love, The Bee
aawww what an awesome posting beautiful!!! Thanks so much. XOXO – Bacon
My pleasure, Bacon. By the way, the pink pig toy that arrived at our house with Bashful last fall is one of my all-time favorites. I love it so much that Mommy just had to give it a bath. 😉 Love, Tallulah Bee
aawww! I’m so glad you love it sweet friend. AND that you think of me with it. You are so sweet! ❤ XOXO – Bacon
Congratulations and LOVE the photos!
Thank you so much. There’s no shortage of photos on Mommy’s camera roll. 😉 Love, Harper Lee and Tallulah Bee
Thank you Harper Lee for the nomination, and Tallulah Bee for the kind words. Jazz and I will whip something up soon and tell people about our favorite blogs! There are so many to choose from, that it could take a few days!
You are quite welcome. We cannot wait to see the blogs that you share. It’s always fun making new friends. Love, Harper Lee and Tallulah
Aww, Miss. Tallulah, you sweet girl. Thank you for the nomination. We received one from Miss Amy and her sweet Lucy from Lexi the Schnauzer a couple weeks ago but haven’t done a post yet. Finding out more about you was a real treat. We hope your sister lets you blog more often. Have a pawsome weekend and congrats on the recognition. We love you girls and your blog❣️
That makes you a doubly lovely doubly nominated lovely blog. Wow! Harper Lee seems to approve of the blogging job I did (but since she’s my big sister, you know she wouldn’t actually tell me that 😉 ). So I might get another shot. Stay tuned. Love, Tallulah Bee
Our paws are crossed for you sweet girl❣️
Congratulations on your award Miss Tallulah Bee. We enjoyed getting to know you better. You have the prettiest smile. Thanks for nominating us.
Your nomination was my pleasure, and thank you so much for complimenting my smile. My humans love it too. Love (with a big smile), Tallulah Bee
We got positive comments back from our two senators and representative. Turns out I had written one last October and forgot and had gotten a letter back then too. My memory needs ginkgo. 🌻
I’m so happy to hear that you received such good responses. And there’s no harm in duplicating requests for support when the cause is such a good one. 😉
Well, well, Tallulah Bee, you are the BOMB! The very best … next to Miss Harper Lee, of course. These pictures are wondrous, and I love them very much. I wish I could have marked “love” instead of just “like” on your blog. Smooch, Smooch
Hold on just a minute, Miss Sheila. Harper Lee here. You’ve done it now. You’ve given my bratty little sister the big head with all those sweet things you said about her. How on Earth will we get that girl back under control? 😉
I have confidence in you, Miss Harper Lee!! 🙂
Congratulations on your award. I haven’t seen these awards in a while.
Thanks, Emma. It does seem that the awards died down a bit over that past few years. It’s nice to see them again. Gives us a chance to get to know new blogs through everyone’s nominations. And it gave my little sister a chance to try her paw at blogging . . . but she better not get too comfortable at the keyboard. 😉 Love, Harper Lee
Y’all definitely deserve the Lovely award. I think Tallulah Bee is bee-utiful. Bentley would love her since they have a similar drinking problem.
Thank you so much! Mommy laughed when she thought of Bentley’s drinking problem combined with his ears. 🙂 If he and The Bee had a date we’d have to spread a tarp on the ground! Love, Miss Harper Lee
Congrats on your award, and what fun hearing from Tallulah and learning more about her! Luke appreciates your drinking style, Tallulah, since he has the exact same style!
Haha! If Luke and I had a date, we’d need a chaperone with a mop! Love, The Bee
Oh Bee, you are one adorable puppers fursure! You knows I am BFF’s with your Big Sis, so I guess that makes you my BFF too! Oh, and I gots a drinkin’ problem too…butts, YES, it IS that kind of drinkin’ problem! BOL!!! what can I say, I do loves my margaritas!!! Oh, and I make puddles too…just that my beard soaks up all the water and drips everywhere! And for added funs, I shake my head and gives my Ma a beard shower! BOL!!! Anyhu, CONGRATS on the awardie, and I gots to get Ma on the ball and do my postie too!
Oh, Ruby, we are definitely BFFs. I might be a little young to join you for those margaritas, but I can definitely hang with a girl who gives her Ma a beard shadow. I’ve been known to sit in my drinking puddles, get the water all over my fluffy tail, and then share the water love throughout the house. 😉 Love, The Bee
Tallulah Bee you are wonderful – and yes you are still a puppy, so still have your puppy license!!! Love your pics, especially the one of you and Harper Lee – so sweet. Dillon has a water problem too – usually because he’s heading for food before he’s finished drinking!! Think you did a great job with your first blog, maybe big sis will let you have another go! 😊🐾🐾
Thank you so much . . . and Mommy’s just hoping I don’t end up getting my puppy license renewed. We’ll see. 😉 Love, Tallulah Bee
Tallulah, I love your name and nickname too! It was fun learning more about you.
My humans love thinking up dog names. They had mine years before I actually entered the picture, and it ended up fitting me perfectly. 🙂 Love, Tallulah Bee
3 bum swings! 3 more!
Tallulah you did a pawsome job! Your fursister will be very proud of you.
Love all the names. I too have more than I can’t count on all 4 paws; well, I can’t count that high but you get what I mean.
Thanks for being real & sharing the real you.
Your nominees are wooftastic! I’m pawing on over to their blogs & pouncing on their follow button.
So happy I could introduce you to some new friends! Love Tallulah Bee (aka Buzzy Bee, Bee Girl, The Bee, etc.) 😉
