Pets Overload has honored WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE with the SUPAWSTARS SPOTLIGHT AWARD. Why is this award so special to Daisy Mae and I? Probably because this award is given to pet and animal blogs in recognition of a pawsome job from one pet blogger to another.

RULES:

  • You are to choose 5 pet bloggers and link to their blogs and describe why each of them deserves this award.
  • You must encourage the pet bloggers to shout out 5 bloggers themselves.
  • You must leave a comment on their blogs letting them know you’ve given them the spotlight.

I follow several good animal blogs so it’s hard to pick just 5.  Please note I will give this award out many times so if you don’t get the award this time you may get it another time. Since I will be awarding this early this month, I’ll be skipping March with the award.

MY NOMINEES ARE:

  1. Tails Around The Ranch
  • I have nominated Tails Around The Ranch because their blog is about a pawsome pooch and a the adventures of a pet therapy team. Helping pets deserves an award in my book.

2. Hands on Bowie

  • I have nominated Hands on Bowie because this pet blog is about a cat and deals with the journey of happiness and grief.

3. 4cats Blog

  • I nominated 4cats Blog because this animal blog deals with all kinds of pet issues than can come up at anytime plus I like the fact there are two types of posts and shops – English and German.

4. TWOspoiledcats

  • I nominated TWOspoiledcats pet blog because this pet blog deals with helping cats. I like pet blogs who are willing to help. Helping an animal doesn’t always mean you have to give money. This blog also deals with adopting cats and other animals.

5. The Blessing Of Animal Companions

  •  I nominated The Blessing Of Animal Companions because this pet blog deals with living with and caring for animals. This blog deals with something very near and dear to my heart – animals.

Any pet/animal blogs you want to suggest to me will be greatly appreciated. Please use the contact form below to suggest your blog or another blog(s).

Sparks Monday

My encouraging words for the week will be on strength. We all need strength to get through each day and I don’t mean the  weight lifting kind of strength. I get through each day by asking God each Morning just to give me the strength to get through the day and it does help. Below are 2 of many of my favorite Bible verses.
