Hershey and I had to shake mom out of her misery into typing out this post for us. We are still going through a rough patch here and mom is still pretty leaky on most days. She's spending a lot of her time swimming, reading and basically just trying to keep herself and her mind occupied.

It was all getting pretty bleak UNTIL we received a message from sweet Opy!! We almost couldn't believe it when we got the message from Opy that we have been nominated for the October Awesome Blog Award!! Ok, yes, I know we have only been nominated and haven't won anything yet, but the honor of being nominated is a joy in itself!!

We are totally flattered that someone thinks so highly of our humble blog.. and I must add that this is one of the greatest achievements since we started blogging 3 years ago... (other than making all the new friends of course because nothing can beat that!). If you like our blog, please do go over to the The Bone Zone to cast your votes for us! We are up against Max, a handsome Golden Retriever in South Africa... We just visited him on his blog and it is totally awesome! You can visit Max here...

To those who have already voted for us, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts right to the tip of our little tails. THANK YOU... **muacks**

Before we go, I leave you with a (freaky) photo of Hershey... It's titled 'Look Ma, No Eyes'...

Ohhh ok.. and mom says we got to be 'play fair', so here's a humiliating photo the still very nekkid looking me. It LOOKS like I am sniffing my a$$, but I assure you that I wasn't. I just happen to be in the latest Doga position. Humans... what do they know right? (And I bet they can't do this pose...LOL).

Huskee you always make me SMILE!!!
Mom said she checked with the Casey's peeps. They are purrty sure they never had another Border Collie, so it looks like Hershey is yours for life!! :-)!!
Hershey that is such a good eyeless picture. Your mom has a good eye (pun intended) for a good picture.
Congrats on the well deserved nomination!!! You two give Mom a big sloppy lick from me.

Hi H & H (Do you know there is a famous bagel company here in NYC called H & H?),

Huskee, don't feel bad about your nakedness. I got stripped last week and sure, for a few days, you feel like you're walking around in your underwear, but then it's not so bad. You get more pats and cuddles because you're so soft and smell delicious (although I preferred smelling like pluff mud and the marsh and the ocean adn something I rolled in on the beach.)

We're still handsome guys. We just can't help it!

Your pal,
