Snowy Noses & Nose-to-Noses

Maxwell's feeling well enough to investigate the snowfall today.



And you can tell by his expression what he thinks of it.
He bent down to sniff and got a nose-full!

 ***



Speaking of noses (how's that for a segue?) ...

As a member of the BlogPaws Blogger Influencer Group, we've been asked to share the news about:
The 3rd Annual BlogPaws 
Nose-to-Nose Awards

It's nomination time, and there are many fantastic pet blogs out there that deserve to be nominated.

The Good News: This is one-time only.
Once a blog is nominated, you're done!

More Good News: No daily begging for votes!
That's what we really like about the Nose-to-Nose awards. A panel of judges will determine the winners in each category, so no stumping for votes on blogs!

The Categories:
There are 12 categories, including:



For the first time, you can nominate a 501(c)3 for Best Social Media Use, so be thinking of all the deserving rescues out there you can nominate!

NOMINATION DEADLINE: NEXT WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12!

What you'll need to know:
You'll need to grab the blog owner's contact information and the link to the blog's homepage.

  3. So happy to hear Maxwell is better!
    He seems to have the same feeling about the snow as our Mommy does. MOL!

    We nominated Maxie's action shot for best photo, but it was a hard decision as we loved Allie's shot, too.

    Happy Thursday!
    XOXO
