My limerick-writing pal, Karen-Jo has just awarded me the Extraordinary Gold Star Special Award, and I'm deeply touched.

This award was created by Storm, The Furry Fighter and is for bloggers who have achieved or done something special. The award celebrates beyond what is ordinary or usual.

The rules for accepting this award are:

1) Post the explanation and rules of the award and link back to the blogger who presented you with it and repeat the reason why you received it.

2) Pass the Award onto two other bloggers who you think deserve it and explain why.

Karen-Jo gave me this award because despite my ongoing health problems, she thinks I'm cheerful and funny. Thanks pal, I try!

Now who do I pass this onto? Mmm, after careful thought and consideration I would like to pass this award to Faya the airedale because she blogs in both English AND French! Mais oui!

My second nomination goes to Axel the WFT for all his hard work in publicising the terrible plight of the Blainville Wires.

To end, here is a rather nice photo of me. Please ignore the plant that J1 is slowly killing in the background.

Hey Jax...we have a plant that looks just like that...dead. Daddy swears it's regenerating itself, but I beg to differ.

Congrats on ur award!! We so agree with ur choices for passing it on...we're learning french on Faya's bloggie...and Axel is who got us to blogland...we had googled abused terriers and his blog popped up...we were hooked!

We're gonna be raffling the pups soon...Lacie's in Boston as you know and I need her help with the little slips of paper and such.

Wiry barks..,!

Congrats on the award, Jackson! A great honor.

My Mom is a bit hard on flora and fauna, too. She once pruned a poodle pom tree in the front yard and it died, I tell you, just curled up and quit.

Katherine and Pippa, said...

Good one on the award, we think you are cheerful and funny too. (Me, I'm just sleepy and furry).

I've only just noticed your ears. One of mine used to fall over like that, but only becuase it was top heavy with a nasty scabby on the end that mistress finally nursed better. It is a cute photo. Mistress likes the rad.

Ruff ruff, Pippa
