hi every bloggie

It's been awhile since I posted. I'm trying to catch up with all of you. As the Pawdance Film Festival came to an end, I rendered a decision to award all winners and not declare a top flick. With that said, Miss Sunshade felt I unduly implied that I suspected she cheated. Rest assured that is not the case. Unfortunately the voting can not be tightly controlled by anyone and based on my analysis of the voting, I rendered a decision I believe was the most fair. I do continue to this day to have a lack of confidence in votes tallied and stand by my decision that all category winners should be awarded. The last thing I wanted to create was a storm of drama and conflict in our wonderful blogging community. Unfortunately there were some misunderstandings and Miss Sunshade felt I accused her unfairly and questioned her integrity. That was not my intent, most definitely. I hope we can just live with the fact that there was multiple winners.

Let's move on. I made a new friend. I tried to play bitey face but mom wouldn't let me.

I guess I can't have fun no matter what I do.


  1. Sometimes you just meet an introvert like that. You know, they will not come out of their shell.

  2. We LUVed your Pawdance Festival--and think having more than one winner is the best idea yet!

    now back to bloggie fun-except Nordude, that's not how you make friends. Had fun on our walkies this morning.. your fuzzbutt is clean once again!


  3. Hmmm... I didn't notice any names mentioned... whatever! The Pawdance Festival was great and we thought your executive decision, with regard to the winning film was Pawsome also.
    Stumpy is waiting for her trophy and a big cash award!

    Stay away from the snapping turtles!

  4. That is one strange ball thingy. It is Flat on one side??? Does it Squeak when you bitey it???
    What's that mom??? Turtle?
    Oh, I didn't know that turtles were REAL.. I thought they were just stuffie toys.
    Mom says they make grrreat Soup. I wonder what kind they make? Maybe Tomato or Chicken Noodle.
    Did your furend offer you any soup???

  5. You make all the fabulous friends, Norwood. Too bad you couldn't play bitey face...

    Sam and Pippen

  6. One day Norwood, you're gonna want to play bitey face with the wrong fella. Like an alligator. shivers...


    and i'm officially coming forward as the cheater. i voted once for every single finalist! I loved them ALL!

    (ok kidding, but i would have cheated and voted for all if i was silly enough to figure out how.)

  7. Hi Norwood!! Your two-legger sounds just like mine... "leave him" "leave him." They just don't understand! I have lots of questions for these interesting friends - how do you keep all of your biscuits and stuffies inside that tiny house? how do you get a good roll when you have to carry everything with you? etc. etc. My mom always acts like I'm about to do anything naughty. Hahahahaa... Looks like you had a little fun despite being held back a bit.


  8. If I met a turtle, I'd have tried to get him to play, too!

    I don't know anything about the voting, but I do know that we enjoyed watching the videos immensely!


  9. Hi, Norwood!
    I had a good laugh watching you "making friends" with that turtle!
    Sorry your mom did not let you play bitey face!
    Happy Sunday!
    Kisses and hugs

  10. If only Khousine Tula had been there to help!

    Khyra & Khousine Merdie

  11. Woof! Woof! Glad you left it alone. GOOD DOG! Lots of Golden Thanks for setting up the Pawdance Festival. YES everyone is a WINNER!!! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  12. Norwood, did you ask that guy his name? I think it might be my friend from a couple of summers ago, Tony the Turtle.

    Good to see you even if Mom didn't want to let you play.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  13. Norwood you are lucky it wasn't a snapping turtle. He might have gotten your nose.. Hope you are having a good weekend...

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

  14. I've been gone from blogland so long that I luckily missed any potential drama!

    I know you did the right thing Norwood, it was your contest to do what you saw fit!

  15. I think you did a pawesome job with the Festival and made a respectful decision as head of the Pawdance! Love your new pal - my mom's always saying "Leave it" too (although I've never run across one of those - hope I do one day!). But I'm so curious about other creatures! Have a great Sunday!
    Hugs xoxo

  16. Leave it, leave it... gosh whenever we find something fun it's like a tape player-leave it! BAH

    My mama made a staement once regarding pawlitics(saying dog blogs, SHE felt, were not the place to go on about it-during the 08 elections.) She mentioned not one name-had a very large response agreeing. And 1 person(who had finally come over for an award) said guess I can't have it anymore. GEEEEEEZ NO NAMES. To this day, after mom asked to be friends again, nope nada. FAHGET ABOUTEM(and my 4th grade teacher used to say"throw a stone into the dark, the guilty dog will always bark"
    (If sunshade reads this no accusation. just a fun film festival. cmon.)
    I think you did the right thing Norwood. Can we be part of eyewatch Friday??? (assuming the secretary stays with it.)
    Sunny,Scooter & Jamie too
    pee ess
    we follow you(sounds kinda creepy doncha think?)
    Wanna follow us-we are tryin to play follow the leader!!!

  17. pee ess
    when mom was a pup, her daddy was stationed at Hanscom AFB(sure it is closed now) but they lived in Bedford, close to Lexington Ma. Close to y'all?
    Mom remembers alot-pahk your cah in hahvahd squahya.
    Is the USS Constitution still in Boston Harbour?
    And LOBSTERS yum

  18. Mitch and I have met turtles before too, Norwood! Mitch like to flip them on their backs too! Mom says he plays too rough with them! Poor guy - imagine having to carry your house on your back?!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  19. Boys will be boys Norwood...Oliver would have done the same thing! Now us cats...well, we just don't care.
    your pal,

  22. Such a fuss. I frankly found the final competition most vexing because momma said I didn't have the best entry and almost wouldn't even let me vote for myself so I was totally relieved when you awarded all the finalists as winners.

    You were acting like a bully with that poor turtle. Made mom have to use stern voice. Not good. Shape up, buddy. Stick with more funballs pals like Tula.


  23. We just loved your film festival Norwood!! Of course Mama just loves watching and making TONS of movies!!

    What is your new friends name?? Looks like he plays a great game of bitey face!!

    Smileys & Snuggles!
    Dory, Jacob and Bilbo

  24. Oh Norwwod - as I've said again and again, the best fun about the Pawdance Film Festival was the PARTICIPATING!!! Who cares about winning?? That's not the point anyway! And besides, we ALL enjoyed watching all the videos - even if we did or didn't vote - whatever. Anyway I think you did a BRILLIANT job of hosting the festival and please don't let all this fuss get you down - I think you did the right thing about the voting in the end and it's nice just to have winners in different categories - after all, we're all different right? And if they were all different categories, then it would have been hard to compare Apples & Pears (it's like I never understand the Best in Show thing - how can you compare like a Toy Poodle to a Irish Wolfound??) -

    ANyway, I made some great new friends through PFF so I want to say THANK YOU again for an awesome competition and blog event and I really hope you will host it again next year as I've already got ideas for new movies! :-)

    Honey the Great Dane

  25. ps. oh Norwood - I just posted a new movie on my blog which would have been PERFECT for your Mystery & Suspense category - come over and check it out - what do you think?! :-) Wished I had thought it to submit during the PFF! If you run it again next year, I'm definitely submitting this one!

    Honey the Great Dane

  26. Your contest, your rules, plus I love your decision. Great job once again. Hey, I have a turtle to play with too.
