Most Influential Blogger Nomination

Hello friends and doggies and kitties everywhere! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your humble doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel along with my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.

We have been nominated for the Most Influential Blogger Award! Hooray! Many thanks to the ones that nominated us: Pipo and Minko, and Charlie (addresses below.) 

We were so surprised that there are kitties out there like Pipo and Minko who read our doggie blog. Perhaps we should have our friend and former house-mate Maddie (aka The Kitten Overlord or TKO) to do a column on The Daily Bone. 

Looking at the rules of this nomination, our ghostwriter was overjoyed to see we had to post a video! Wow! She collects music from all around the world and can whip up a play list in no time. But she couldn't decide which ONE video she liked the best. When we looked at the blogs of some of the other nominees, we saw that they featured their national anthem. Since we're still pumped from the Thunderbirds visiting our area and flying right over our house, we decided this video was a good one to show. 

But if you ask Joey and me to pick OUR favorite doggie video it has to be this one: 


Next we have to nominate ten more bloggers for this award and here they are in no particular order.

Thank you for your beautiful photos, thoughtful and funny stories, great information, and help with blogging. (We're hoping our ghostwriter did this all correctly. How do we send the award nomination to these 10 bloggers?)

So after a lot of careful thought and consideration, here is the video we all agree is one of our favorites. We love these guys! (Watch for the doggies about halfway though!) But, the main reason we chose this video is because of it's over-riding message. In the midst of all the worrisome, frightening and even horrifying news lately we must always remember this:





  1. You did good, Chester and Joseph!

    If you want to send the nomination to the others, just use the links you made to hook up with them and leave them your address in the message about being nominated.
