Day 616: Eighty-Eight Weeks... And A Huge Honor!

Today marks the completion of my first eighty-eight weeks in Forever Home (of my the Mom's dreams)! And if that isn't special enough, I am in complete disbelief... at the incredible Honor that I've been awarded...


This is a very special award, created by The Bumpass Hounds, and is another wonderful testament to their commitment and dedication to the Rescue Mission.

I am a HUGE fan of The Bumpass Hounds (and Kitties and their human folks!!!). The thoughtfulness behind this Award is incredible. The Hounds' dad tells it best, but in Navy talk... Bravo-Zulu means "well done", a commendation for somefing done "above and beyond"...

To even be mentioned in same way as first four recipients is... such an honor. I so don't feel deservin... and am kinda speechless, the Mom's got the leaky eyes and the Bleu... well, he spinnin and spinnin in he circles!

This Award is particularly special for my the Mom on a counta it come from the Homer J, Rescue Dog. And that is the ultimate in Rescue Reward... coming from a Happy Dog in he Forever Home. Seriously. Period. As TBH put it, award present itself as...

"something as simple as a muddy paw print on a white shirt or blouse or a big sloppy tongue kiss to one's cheek or a hug, a pat on the head or a strong stroke along the back of a neck. It's something that is instantaneously recognized when it happens."

And it's the inspiration to make it so... for so many other wonderful and deserving Goldens... and their future forever families. May we all ways live up to this honor!!!

Aunt Lisa,I would continue to feel undeservin, had I not consulted wif the Cousin Sidney...

And he say, "no, I absolutely do not want to sweep on the big bed all night... if the Mo-jo-ito do, may he shmuggle in the peace wif my the mom. Just sayin."

I take my "feel goods" from the Sid. And the Mojo. And also my the Aunt Lisa. They are the best family ever and I love the them!

Hey Luke, The Bleu, and Mom,
Please be assured that youse guys is as totally deserving of the BZ Award as all the previous recipients. It is not pretentious to post about your involvement in rescue proudly because it encourages others to also get involved. Individual circumstance dictate how much any particular blogger can do. But is the degree of commitment and involvement that matters most. Bill Gates can donate more money than us but not have any real involvement. We might only be able to donate time on weekends socializing shelter dogs or cleaning kennel crates/bays. What is important is how much helping out means to you and we know that it means a lot to y'all; that's what matters. So don't be shy about posting about what you do to help. No one can do it alone, we need everyone to do what they can be it a little or a lot. So please bask in the limelight of our humble award as you are most deserving awardees.
Luke, congratulations on 88 weeks on your second chance go around. Where would you, and The Bleu or even Mojo, be if your mom didn't care about rescue? Is her involvement important to you? Are you important to her? That sums up why you got the Bravo-Zulu.
