First of all I just want to wish my American pals a very happy Independence Day! 
I hope that you all have a great holiday!

We Mum is very very bad when it comes to awards, so we'll make a general apology for that now with absolutely no promise of getting any better! I Mum would completely understand if we never receive another one because we Mum is so rubbish at following the conditions. Anyway, whilst we are away at Ganny's I have left instructions for Other Mum (who is sooooo much more reliable) to at least thank everyone for our embarrassingly old recent awards.

Thanks to Sue & Aunty Song at Graceful Greyhounds for the Leibster Blog Award. This is so long ago, Song & Sue probably won't remember giving it to us, but you did - honestly! We have received the award a few times before and we are fairly sure that we passed it on the first time so this is our excuse reason for not doing so again. 

Thank you to Fred, Gloria and their Mum over at Basset Momma for the Pawsome Blogger Award. Again we have received this a few times so we are going to use the same old lame excuse have a good reason for not passing it on again!

Thank you to Barnie at BordoggyTerrier for the Sunshine Award. This is our first Sunshine Award so we haven't got a good excuse for not passing it on but everyone we know seems to have it. If you haven't then please do help yourself!

Now this is impressive as we only got this last week! Thank you very much to Molly the Wally for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Mum is completely out of excuses that only she would find acceptable anyway says that I might get away with must comply with some of the conditions, which are as follows: Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Friday 6th July is my first Gotcha Day
  • My Dad, Grandad and Gt. Grandad had 11701 puppies between them! It's no wonder I'm related to so many of my blogging greyhound pals. 
  • I stand 28" to the shoulder and weigh 32kg (71 lb)
  • I eat approximately 4.5kg (10 lbs) of kibble a week
  • My racing name was Barrigone Bank and I had 61 races between March 2009 and my retirement on Valentines Day 2011
  • My favourite place to sleep is my sofa
  • My favourite treat is a pig's ear, but I do like Tuna Fudge too!
Me and some of that kibble!
I am supposed to pass this on to 15 people, but honestly, I know lots of you already have it and I really don't want to suggest that some of you are better than others, because you are all great to me! If you haven't got it and would like it, then please help yourselves.

I'll catch up with you all soon when I am back from Ganny's!
