and the latest edition of STICK HUSTLER

And now showing the latest episode of STICK HUSTLER
I need my music please... lah dee doo dah.  mmmm

num num num chomp! slight break in the music for a snack!
dee do dah! ladadah dah!

And now my new dog bloggie friend Trooper asked if I (or/and mr. bizerko) ever slept and where? Stick hustling is tiring. I do retire to my favorite mobile unit bed box.  My fun aunt dee bought it for me when I was adopted and I prefer it over all my pillows. Can you believe I 'm not allowed on the furniture?  I see many dog bloggies are.. mom says something about dirt dirt mud and ticks and I need rules.  Whatever.  Trooper here is my sleeping nest.

and Trooper also honored me with this fabby award!  Thanks Pal 

The award states that “This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time, and relationships!”

In other words, “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

I am passing the award onto:
Stumpy-my fav staring friend and very understated!  
Vodka- you are so sweet and always up to something
Hootie and Baby Rocket- Every visit I get a great laugh! silly just silly!
Velcro- a sweet heeler with a heart of gold!
Tula- my cousin who just wants to have friends but oh so clever.  
Eric the square dog- you define clever my friend. 
the 4Bs- my fav poodles and schnoodle are friends with every poodle on the west coast!
Maggie and Mitch- those dales are always sharing their car trips and snacks with us!  I want a car ride with you! Pizza, etc.  Lucky!

That's it! Whew that was a long post!

  3. Hello crack me up the way you always go for the BIG stick! You must have really strong teeth!! I like your bed cuz you look so cozy when you're cuddled up in it. Congratulations on your awards...that Trooper is a real pal isn't he:)

  4. At least you stop moving sometimes. You are very busy. It is the best time of year for collecting sticks.


  5. Norwood, thanks for the award. We hope to pass it on soon!!! We sure do enjoy your blog and adventures, no matter how homesick you make us!!!

    You know, not only do we not have any water around here, but you can't even find a decent stick!!! What kind of life is that? No sticks, no water... sheesh, what else is there besides treats and you can only have so many of those...

    Thanks, again!!!

  6. What a wonderful stick you found here Norwood.. As you know sticks are our favoritest too..
    Nice bed you got there. WE don't have the no pups on furniture rule after all it is called Fur-niture..

  10. Hey Norwood! thanks for that pawsome award. it really makes us happy! we love hearing about your stick hustling adventures. how fun. but we think it's so sad that you can't get on the furniture. some humans are very possessive of their furniture and they like to make 'dog rules'. if you ever want to sit on the couch, you can come over to our house, okay?


  11. Good job with the sticks. You made yourself a treat.

  12. Ahh Norwood. That episode of the Stick Hussler had me hanging on the edge of my seat. Well to be truthful it's the squaries seat but hey ho. Excellent Norwood, what a sticky story. I enjoyed the singing too ...which reminds me... did you get my bandana photo in the end?

    I'm wagging happy about my award. Thanks ever so- what a chum.!! Now I'm off to sniff out Trooper. Wiry wags, Eric xxxxx

  13. You know how to pick out the most perfect sticks. =) What great places to nap, I too was tagged by Trooper, but have not made my post yet, will be doing that tomorrow. =)

  14. Hi Norwood-thanks so much for the award...I'll have to remind mom to add it to my blog!! She'll forget!!

    Do sticks taste funny? Does the bark get stuck in your throat? I've never carried a stick!

    Did your mom find out about herding???



  15. You and I agree that it is best to not allow our dog's on furniture. A much as I love them, I think they need to understand there are limits to where they can go. Sorry Norwood! Your bed looks comfy though!

  16. Hey Norwood... I like your cool little bed box. I think it's neat that you can take it from room to room with you.

    Your Pal,

    P.S. You are an awesome stick hustler! I prefer pinecones myself.
