Five Animal Blogs I Dig

Back a little while ago as I found myself crazed with family and health changes, I received a fun surprise. Sydney flipped out. “Four paws up!” he yipped.

Dog Leader Mysteries blog got gifted its first award.

The Liebster Award “Liebster is a German word that means favorite.”

My First Blog Award

The Dante Diaries gave it to me.  This mighty sweet, white five-pound Malti-Poo writes about her life and her travels. You can find this little love of a dog on Twitter at @DanteDiaries or look on Facebook for The Dante Diaries. The Liebster Award brings attention to worthy, lesser-known blogs.

The rules for the Liebster Award are:

  1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
  2. Reveal your top five picks (with less than 200 readers) and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
  4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite up-and-coming bloggers and keep it going.

Today, it’s my turn to share the love.

I have no way of knowing how many followers some of the blogs have but I do know all I read are worthy of thousands of readers.
