Yesterday, we celebrated a very special birthday! It was Shiner's 12th birthday. Yes, Shiner is a senior lady. I know it's hard to believe... she doesn't look (or act) a day over 3. ;)
For her birthday, Shiner first got a special meal. It was her normal food, mixed with chicken broth and a few treats on top. And as far as presents go, I let her destroy her Hippo Snail plush toy from her February PetBox. She had a lot of fun with that!
Later on that evening, I went out with the family to watch my daughter's choir performance at school. I came home, checked my computer, and learned that I am a Finalist in the 2015 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards! My blog post "How Important is Credibility" is a finalist for Best Written Pet Blog Post.
To be honest, I definitely was not expecting to be a Finalist in this category. The post is not my usual subject matter, but it's a topic that I felt strongly about when I wrote it. Perhaps it does pay to step outside of our comfort zones every now and then.
There are some excellent Finalists in all of the categories, and I can't wait to see who wins! Congratulations to my fellow bloggers who were nominated.
