Our very good furiends Buddy and Ginger have conferred The Versatile Blogger Award upon this blog. They blog at Pawprints in the Sands of Time in case you haven't found their blog yet. I think most of you have, but it's a must read in case you haven't sniffed it out yet. I want to thank them and their Mom very much for this. She's a doctor and still finds time to type for them. Isn't that wonderful? I think it is.
Now part of the rules state that you should list seven things about yourself. I did that recently for another award, so will repost that, updating where necessary.
- I'm multi-lingual, conversationally, but I only understand commands in French. I posted about that not too long ago.I hate vegetables and kibble - not necessarily in that order.
- My humans have adjusted to the kibble issue but are not happy about the veggies. They worry that I'll get stopped up and constantly plot to get veggies into my diet.
- I like sidewalks. We don't have many in the residential areas around here and I'm so happy when we take walks in town where they're on every street. It's one thing I miss about the city. My humans worry that for a generally pretty smart dog I don't have a lot of traffic sense and they have to keep reminding me to keep to the side of the road when we're walking. I say that it's not a question of not having traffic sense. What we don't have is sidewalks. Cars on street, foot traffic on the sidewalk. You know where you are with a sidewalk. Of course there have been instances where that system has broken down and cars wind up on the sidewalk or in the window of a building, but no system is foolproof.
- Cheese. This one is very redundant but no post about me, Lola, would be complete without a bit of cheese appreciation.
- As a Shar Pei, I belong to a previously persecuted minority that was almost rendered extinct and not so very long ago, either, historically speaking. All Shar Pei know this history, but some other dogs might not. We do plan to talk more about this in the future.
- I am perfectly lovely to my cats, even if they fail utterly to appreciate my good nature and behave as though I were about to attack at any moment. For Dog's sake, I don't even engage in guarding behavior with my food. What else could they possibly want from me?
- Blogging is one of the best things Blog Mom and I decided to do. Not only have we met the most pawsome other dogs, humans and some great cats, we've gotten even closer than before. A dog's typist has to pay close attention so as to properly represent said dog's words and thoughts. Although it must be said that recently exhaustion has rendered her a little...limp. We expect that to be a temporary situation, however.
