Liebster Award

I was nominated for dis Liebster Award by Frada and Riley over at My Mutt Riley.  Fanks so much!!

Dere's some rules dat come wif dis award, so here dey is:

1. Fank da person who nominated ya and link to dere blog.
2. Give readers 11 random facts bout yourself.
3. Answer 11 questuns from da blog of da person who nominated ya.
4. Nominate 5-11 bloggers for dis award (those wif fewer dan 200 followers is recommended).
5. Come up wif 11 questuns for your nominees.
6. List dese rules in the post along wif said nominees and da questuns ya wish em answer.
7. Notify your nominees.
8. Eat a cookie (I added dat one).

Ok, so for 11 facts bout me:

1.  I luvs da water.  Seriously.

2. I has invented my own game to play in da water.  It are called pool ball.  I floats round on my pool float (da S.S. Whitley) and bark until my momma throws a plastic play ball for me.  Den I bounce it off my nose.  Pool ball are my favorite game in da whole world.  Fetch are fun and all, tug are not really my game, but I luvs me some pool ball.

3.  I's bicoastal, I's lived on both coasts.  Now I lives near Dallas, which do not have a coast, but at least I has a pool.
4.  I has back wrinkles.  I don't know any udder westies dat does.  My vet are kinda fascinated wif em, he says he has no clue why I has em, but he has seen a few udder pups get em and dey don't mean nuffin bad.
5.  I has killed skwerrils (while on leash), rats, and a mousie.  So varmints, stay away from me!
6.  I live wif my BFF Finley and three kitties - Travis, Crockett, and Angelique.
7.  I has a more extensive wardrobe dan most people does.  Yeah, I's a spoiled princess and proud of it.
8.  I has a middle name.  It are Michelle.  Like da Beatles song.

9. I are Head of Security round these parts and make sure to bark a lot to let everyone know it.
10.  I patrol for zombies on pretty much a daily basis.
11.  I has lived in more states dan my momma (cuz I wuz born in Oklahoma).

So now for da 11 questuns:
1. What keeps your dog most entertained?  Well, I don't has a dog (BFF Finley are my BFF, not my posseshun) but I'll answer like you're askin bout me.  Stuffies work well to keep me entertained, so does Texas Toothpicks.  And playin in da pool of course.  Or da movie Oklahoma!
2.  Does your dog like grooming?  I'm ok wif da baff and da brushin, but I hate da strippin part.  Not as much as nail trimmin, dat are da worstest.
3.  Would your rather go for a morning walk or evening?  I'd rather sit and not move, but momma has me go on morning walks.  It are cooler in da morning dan da evening and stayin cool are important here.
4.  What is the most embarrassing thing your dog has ever done?  Probably when I peed on da hotel bed in Kingman, Arizona.  Hey, at dat point I wuz only used to peein on suburban lawns and didn't wanna pee in da desert dirt.  I figured da bed looked better. BOL BOL!
5.  Do you compete in any activities wif your dog and if not would you?  I don't do nuffin competitive, I mean, I beats Finn hands down in pool ball and barkin.  Momma always thought I'd be a good Earth Dog though since I's very prey-focused.
6.  Does your dog like water/swimming?  I think we all know da answer to dat one are YES.
7.  Has your dog ever won any prizes?  I's won some giveaways, but not prizes.
8.  Why did you name your dog what you did?  Momma wuz plannin on namin me Whitney (she liked da way it sounded - Whitney da Westie.)  Den she saw da name Whitley in a baby name book - it means from the white meadow and are Gaelic (and I's a Scottish pup).  And since her name are Kimberley, she liked dat it ended wif a -ley too, so she went wif Whitley.
9.  What do you like most about blogging?  Meetin new pals.
10.  What is your favourite flavor of ice cream?  I likes butter pecan a lot, momma are a big fan of Mocha Heath Bar Crunch and Mocha Almond Fudge.  But ice cream are kind of a sore subject round here, we is all missin our Bluebell real bad.
11. Does your dog have a special habit or thing about them?  Yeah, everything.  BOL BOL!

Ok, I are nominatin:

1.  Freckles
2.  Charlie
3.  Sweet William
4.  Mei Ling
5.  Wesley
6.  Princess Leah
7.  Duncan
