Apparently, we're stylish!

Happy FRIDAY everyone!  Bring on the long weekend!

We received the "Stylish Blogger Award" yesterday from Leroy and Sherman... what an honor!  A big thank you to you furbabies... and your Mom too!  We now need to share 7 things about us that you may not know, as well as award 7 other blogs that we think are stylish.  So here it goes...

1. Zeus is going to hit the double digits in a couple weeks... he'll be 10 on March 7.

Lola2. Lola greets us at the door with a toy in her mouth every time we come home.

Teutul_babyFootball 3. Teutul is named after The Teutul family from "American Chopper" / OCC.  I originally wanted to call him Brady (after Tom, we got him on Superbowl Sunday), but that was vetoed.  Then I wanted to call him Mikey and Matt said "how about Mikey Teutul?"  Teutul stuck, Tut for short... and King Tut for his nickname.  He's the only dog we actually named.  Zeus came from friends already named, Lola from the local Humane Society already named and Sophie was originally "Scuff" when she came to us for fostering.  I immediately suggested changing her name to Maggie, but there was already a Maggie on the rescue site, so they picked Sophie.

SophieBall4. Sophie has quite the overbite... a birth defect we assume (she was born a stray on the streets).

5. Tut was our first ever foster - and we "failed." Sophie was our last "failed foster" - she decided she was staying with us.  We fostered many in between who are now in their loving forever homes.

6. Zeus weighed a mere 16 pounds when we first brought him home, at 7 weeks.  At his annual vet visit yesterday, he weighed in at 116 pounds.  At his heaviest, he was 145 pounds.... we're all quite happy with his slimmer figure. 

babyZeus7. Zeus, Lola and Tut are pretty good actors.  They can all "die" on command ("bang") for a treat.  After Zeus' TPLO surgery, he learned that limping got him lots of attention and will sometimes show that acting skill off.  Sophie's best trick is looking at you with those big eyes and whacking you with her paw when she wants attention (and I do mean whack!). 

And now, we pass this award on to 7 friends.... in no particular order and in now way did I mean to leave anyone out.  I'm passing this along to several friends who are all within the same blog circle and will need others to pass it along to as well...
