An award from my friends

Thank you to my friends Sassy, Zach and Buddy over at Dog Daze and also to Dory and Bilbo too over at Dory's Backyard for passing on this award to me. I love you all and please go and visit both of these very fun blogs.

The translation is: Your blog is a dream
Wow, how cool is that??

Ok now the rule things: Give 7 beauty secrets and then pass it on.

Beauty secrets makes me giggle just a little, because if you follow my blog, you know I don't much care for water or being brushed or groomed in general. I have posted this picture before, but I think it pretty much sums up how I feel about grooming.

I do, however have beauty secrets to pass on to doggy friends. My human friends may not agree, I know my Mom doesn't, in fact she breaks my first rule much too often.

1. Don't take baths, maybe only once or twice a year, but no more. The stinkier the better.
2. Brush your teeth every day, even more than once a day. We need our teeth for many things.
3. Roll in the grass whenever possible, every day if you can. The grass is cleansing, the smell wonderful.
4. Eat lots of treats, they are good for everything.
5. Drink plenty of water, also good for everything.
6. Chase your tail, it is good exercise and let me know if you ever catch yours.
7. Real beauty is found within. There is no need for all that grooming nonsense, it is what is on the inside that counts. Ok Mom did you get that NO NEED FOR GROOMING!

I will pass this on to:
Checkers The Peek A Poo , Checkers just got back from vacation and may have some grooming tips.
EL DIARIO DE LORENZA Lorenza certainly knows about beauty, she will have some great tips, I am sure.
Honeygo Beasley Another dog who knows a lot about beauty
I need a Sugar fix I have to give a shout out to my twin sister Sugar, she is also beautiful.
Martha and Bailey's Blog Martha and Bailey are also beautiful and I am sure will have tips to share.
Corgi Country There has been a lot of recent grooming here, so these beauties should have tips, I hope.

I tried to pick different blogs than my friends who gave me the award picked. I love you all.

Oh Sasha I think you're a genius. Rolling in the grass is much better than a bath and a brush any day!

Khongrats on your award and for sharing those sekhrets!

Well, I've yet to have a bath...maybe I'm onto something?!?


Lillian Robinson said...

Congrats Sasha! And you're right about rolling. Mom likes to watch the horses roll. She doesn't like it so much when I do it. She thinks it makes me smell bad!

Sasha, conrats on your award. Those are great beauty tips. I agree water is for drinking and nothing else. But how can you not like brushing it feels so good. It's almost as good as scritchies behind my ear!

Lots of love and purrrrs,

Hi Sashy,

Beauty tips...no wonder you really are beautiful!



♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Wow you got ice cream!!
Mommy gives me a treat everyday that looks like a chicken drumstick. It's got dried chicken on the outside and the stick part is a teeth cleaner. It's yummy and good for my teethies too.


BRUTUS said...

Hey Sasha-
Some valid tips there! Don't our humans get that we have our own ideas about what it is to be clean, and what smells good to us?? Sure isn't that perfume-y shampoo!!

Jan Mader said...

I just love reading your blog! I will share your tips with Annabelle and Maddie.

I gave Tango a bath today. He was not happy until he went out and rolled in the blackest mud he could find. He was dirtier after his bath than before...go figure!

Donna Quesada said...

I love stinky dogs! I have a stinky, adorable poodle named Simba. He's 12 now, and he is the love of my life - I've had him since he was a baby. Simba has a very pretty chow-chow sister named Frijoles, and now he has a kitten named Jacques. Jacques drives him crazy, biting him all the time, and pushing him out of his bed. But he'll grow out of that. (Do you like cats?)

I invite you to visit my blog too, if you get a moment - there are many nice words there about life.

Koobuss said...

Hi Shasha!

My name is Koobuss and I am a wire fox terrier. I want to thank you for visiting my blog.

Your beauty tips are excellent. The only thing that I would add is that when you roll around in the grass, also try to roll in some stinky stuff. I do that a lot. This will add some goo to your fur along with giving it a most pleasant aroma. When I do this, I like to get the stinky stuff on my shoulder so that it's close to my nose and I can better enjoy it's amazing scent. Unfortunately, this is short-lived since said stinky stuff will always land me in the tub for one of those dreaded baths. My mom doesn't appreciate anything.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
