Reality Award from Urban Hounds

We recently received a couple of awards!
The first one is a Reality Blog Award.

Our wonderful friends at Urban Hounds gave us this award. Thank you so much. We really enjoy their blog. It is filled with dogs and recipes (for humans and dogs) and historical info, product reviews. And their pug Weasley is about the same age as Greta, so it has been fun seeing the two "grow up together".

The rules and instruction for this award are as follows . . .
1) Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2) Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back to them.
3) Answer the 5 simple questions. (see below)
4) Nominate up to 20 blogs for the award and notify each of them. (see below)
5) Display the award on your blog somewhere.

1) If you could change one thing, what would you change?
All five (pugs and 'rents) of us would love it if Mom and Dad could be retired and stay home every day with us. On second thought sometimes we look forward to Monday so we can get our rest!
2) If you could repeat an age, what would it be? any year?
Bailey and Hazel 5 or 6 would be a good age. They could stay that age forever Mom would be happy.
Greta is not quite one year old. We do not want to repeat this first year it has been a challenge and she is just starting to be not soo naughty (still crazy though) all the time.
Mom would go back to her 40's. It was after she met Dad and had more energy for everything.
3) What is one thing that really scares you?

Bailey - he is scared of thunder, fireworks and the kitchen floor. He won't walk across it sometimes like he is afraid it will swallow him or something .
Hazel - doesn't like sirens
Greta - has no fear!! Except the GiantPugFace Tshirt - that freaked her out.

4) What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it?

Bailey - To get his Companion Dog title. Probably not going to happen, he is ten and just doesn't like going to the shows.
Hazel - To get her Rally Advanced title. Still might be in the cards as she is more settled now and since Greta joined the family more anxious to show Mom that she can do it.
Greta - Just getting started, right now the sky is the limit, not only in Obedience and Rally, but she will be (we hope) Mom's first agility pug! She has soo much potential it is up to Mom to be a good trainer.
5) If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
WE like us puggies just as we are! Spoiled & pampered.
Mom would like to be a master dog trainer, but for longer than a day.
I would like to pass this award to:
the Gospel of Goose
Through the Eyes of Tweedles
Bert - Four Legged Views
Bowl of Noodles
the Online Canine
A Day in the Life of Pugs
Southern Fried Pugs
Thanks again to Urban Hounds!!
