Aroooo to you! Our new Life With Beagle award

Hello Team Beagle fans!

Lulu and I have been discussing it for some time. We love to receive blog awards, and we love to acknowledge the people who do amazing stuff.

So, with that in mind, we have come up with our own award. Periodically, we will post about a few people we think deserve this.

What's the criteria?

We see something you did, we like it, we offer you an award. You could be a blog. A rescue group. A business. Or just a regular person. We'll do this once in a while, at our discretion.

What do you have to do if you win?

Absolutely nothing. No surveys, no sharing, nothing. I encourage you to place the award on your website and link back to me. But you don't have to. :)

Can you nominate people for the award?

Sure! You can nominate on the Life With Beagle Facebook page, or tweet us @LifeWithBeagle. I reserve the right to choose who wins though.

So, without adieu, here are the first five Aroooo to You Award winners!

Carma Poodale and Bunny Allen

Carma is a poodle, and Bunny is her mom. Carma uses her blog to talk about her experience as a service dog and as a spokesdog for Owensboro Humane Society. Her and her mom Bunny champion dogs that may have been saved from being euthanized, but they are still living in a shelter, hoping for a home. Sometimes for a long time.

Recently, Dozer, a long time resident at the Humane Society, finally got a forever home. He waited three years. But he's home now, and it's thanks to them. Bunny does amazing work to help these dogs, and she and Carma deserve high praise.

Caren Gittleman

Caren runs two blogs: Cat Chat with Caren and Cody and Dakota's Den. She also is an ambassador for BlogPaws. She is the one who makes all the new bloggers feel most welcome in the blogging world. She is always great to all of us.

Caren deserves to be honored for the work on her blog, and also for just being a great advocate for dog bloggers every where.

Kol's Notes

 Jodi Chick's blog is all about ways to raise a pet the homegrown way. Check out their archive of recipes, and tips and tricks from handmade birthday cards to making doggy pillows. Great pictures, nicely designed blog! And great info too, that's easy to follow. I love Jodi's projects, plus Kolchak the puggle and Felix are adorable, if cantankerous.

The Pet Blog Lady

Lisa at the BlogPaws Nose to Nose Awards.
Lisa is quirky. It's what makes her blog so fun. That and her absolute adoration of animals. Lisa's blog celebrates all animals in fun and funny way. Her posts always make me smile, especially on Facebook. Whether she's talking about Oscar, her dog, Frank (the fish) or her trips to Mexico to help SPCA, or even Squirrel Appreciation Week, you will always enjoy what you're reading, and you'll learn something.

Oz the Terrier

Oz the Terrier is funny Cairn Terrier who writes beautiful poetry. Ok, they're dirty limericks about his friends. But he has their permission, so it's ok.

Oz and his mom Gina are also always traveling around Florida, camping out in all kinds of places and showing how to make these camping trips enjoyable for dogs of all shapes and sizes. And one of the first things I also enjoyed about his blog was how the title graphic used the same fonts you'd find in a copy of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." Toto was a Cairn Terrier, you know.
