My Sunshine Award

Yeesh, Momma is gettin' furgetful... seems Whitley awarded me da Sunshine Award and my Momma/secrementary nevfur got 'round to writin' down whut I had dictated... I tell ya, all dat gardenin' of hers is gettin' in my way-- today I had to wait fur zombie patrol while she hacked down some more of dose holly bushes (trees!) in da backyard. She don't like 'em cuz dey's huge and take up too much room and has prickly leaves... she wants sumthin' that blooms. If it don't bloom, she don't want it. (Well, she makes some exceptions to dat rule, but not many...) Hmm.... I better work on bloomin', I guess....

Back to my Award... Whitley of Whitley Westie gave me dis award...

Da Sunshine Award are given by bloggers to other bloggers dat dey admire.  Here are how dis award works...
1. Thank da person who gave you da award. So fanks Whitley!
2. Name ten things bout yourself dat others might not know.
3. Pass the award on to ten other bloggers (be sure to shows da Sunshine Award logo so dey can use it too)

1.  I loves tangerines! Most pups don't like citrus, but I comes runnin' when Momma sez, "Tangerines, Finley!!

2.  I quacks like a duck if I goes on a walk with just a leash and my collar... so I always has to use my harness and leash...hee hee...

3. I has been known to cuddle wiff cats...

4. I likes to steal my Daddy's spot in da big bed when he gets up to go to work...  I snuggle under da covers and duz my best Daddy impersonation, 'cept I don't snore...

5. I luvs belly rubs... I will give ya a quick kissie and den flop ovfur to gets my belly rubbed... which might explain #6...

6. I frequently sleeps belly-up... the better to facilitate belly-rubs??????

7. I has a deal where I sits upright next to ya in your lap like I was a hooman... the better for ya to rub my belly... Momma sez it comes from Daddy holdin' me like I wuz a hooman baby when I was a tiny pup... it progressed to me sitting up in his lap like I wuz a person...

8. I hates, hates, hates being rubbed with a towel. So when I gets my frequent waterboardin', they has to wrap me up in towels and hold me fur a while while I's blotted dry... I gots my peeple trained real good...hee hee...

9. I's a fearsome varmint killer... I's killed a couple of rats and a field mouse, too! Two shakes and they're done fur!! Then ya brings them to your folks and lays dem at their feet... they is overcome with emotion, I tells ya!!

10. I plays pool ball, Whitley taught me how...

But I ain't as nutso about it as Whitley is... I prefers to spend my time outside chilling on a lounge chair...

I's givin' dis award to....

    1. Momma gets da giggles when she sees it...

  10. Only time I like me a belly rub is in the morning when the peeps furst wake me up...
    I like kitties too, but they don't wanna snuggle with me at all...tho Minko will come close by...Pipo hates me, sigh...

    Human beds are off limits fur the furry ones here...

    Nice blooms you got there!

  11. Thank you for the nomination Finley! My typist is thinking hard about my next blog entry for this award. Loved all the pictures and getting to know you better!

  12. Quacks like a duck? Likes tangerines? Cuddles with cats?
    Good job you said that stuff about being a varmint killer Finley. I was beginning to worry that you were any kind of a terrier at all.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Thank you so much for nominating me for the Sunshine Award, but I regret to have to tell you that Gail is very strict on this matter and has never ever allowed me to accept any awards at all, on the ground that I am quite big-headed enough as it is...

  13. Bentley loves belly rubs too! Pierre hates to be cleaned up. It must be a Westie trait!

  14. Finley, mom finally wrote up our Sunshine Award. Thanks so much for the nomination.
