I was SO surprised when I received an Inspirational Blogger Award this week from one of my favorite bloggers at Tales and Tails. I really enjoy and look forward to reading her blog and keeping up with the antics of Lilac, Bunny, Blueberry and Morgan.  If you aren't already a follower of theirs, check it out.  I highly recommend it - both for the beautiful photography and the hilarious stories and conversations with the dogs. I haven't been doing this very long, but it is certainly becoming addictive.  As a recipient of the award, you are asked to share ten other blogs that inspire you.  All the bloggers I have conversed with have been extremely friendly and all their blogs are inspiring to me so it will be hard to pick 10 of them to pass on the award but here goes:

1.The Greyhound Beckett & His Dog Treats. This was actually the first dog blog that I ever came across, while I was searching for home made dog treat recipes.  It caught my attention because she has a greyhound named "Beckett" too.  Veil, Beckett and Maddy recommend the Peant Butter Pumpkin dog treats - yummy! She hasn't posted anything for a few weeks, but my guys are anxiously awaiting a new recipe!

2. Retired From Racing...Not From Life. Check out this blog for the Art Book Project, where the proceeds will be going to the Greyhound Health and Wellness Program at Ohio State University. A worthy cause for sure and it inspires me to think about other ways to benefit greyhounds.  I know I am looking forwarded to the day when the book is published and available for sale.

The rest of the blogs are well known to everyone.  I'm sure they have received this award many, many times but I will list them anyway because they have inspired me to (a) start my own blog and (b) more importantly; to do more things, go more places and take more pictures of my own greyhounds.

3. Never Say Never Greyhounds
4.Two Greyhound Town
5.Dogs Rock!!
6.Greyhounds Can Sit
7.Its A Greyt Day
8.Cult of the Greyhound
9.From Sophie's View
10.Hiking Hounds

Believe me, there are many more that are inspiring to me too. 


  1. You've got a great list of blogs as reward recipients! :) We're looking forward to following all your adventures, too!

    Bunny says that she'd be happy to compare notes with Veil any time!

  2. Thank you so much for the honor of the award. I have been enjoying reading your blog and am looking forward to more great posts and wonderful photos.
