Humility Is A Virtue

Cocorue, a dear sweet dog with a heart of gold who hails from the beautiful country of Malaysia, has presented me with the lovely "Beautiful Blogger" award. *blush I have been called many things in my life, but being called "beautiful" is certainly one of my favorites. Followed closely behind by "gorgeous," "stunning," "spectacular," "magnificent," and "breathtaking." I am honored to be the recipient of this most apt award. Thank you Cocorue! I was so thrilled to receive this award that I did not have time to prepare a speech. OK, actually I did have time to prepare but I have been busy lounging in the warm rays of the sun these past few days. I must continue to look my very best and the sun makes me look radiant!

Now that my beauty has been officially recognized I decided it was time to put together a portfolio. I had my human, K, take some snapshots of me but as you can see they are less than perfect. The first is me under the almost-full Walapana moon, which means "windy big moon" in Hopi language (Hopitu Shinumo). A bit off center for my liking and I think I look a tad too stiff. For the next three photos I decided upon a very scenic spot next to a creek, since it was one of the few places left with wonderful snow. Unfortunately, K made me look as if my head were holding up the tilting tree. I was none too pleased. But, we have another photo shoot scheduled for later in the week and I am sure those photos will turn out much better. K has been mumbling that I have been acting like I am "all that, and then some" since receiving the "Beautiful Blogger" award, and that my looks have gone to my head. I woofed to her that she was exaggerating my behaviour and that I am the same sweet, delightful, and enchanting Suka she has always known and loved. I then informed her that I will no longer get out of my doghouse for less than 10 meaty treats a day. I'm just sayin'...

Actually Suka, I think that first photo of you is pretty cool! Congratulations on your award.

Suka,

You're so beautiful that you don't need to be humble! Plus, I'm impressed that you can hold up that tree with your head. You're strong as well as beautiful!

Selba said...

Congratulatons on the official recognition of your incredible beauty--both outside and inside! K's photos do more than capture your magnificent floofy tail and muscular body...they accent your soulful eyes and caring expression! Mom was thrilled that someone else knows of the Walapana moon (her and dad's wedding bands are designed by a Hopi artist from Second Mesa). So far having a brother is not so bad. He is gentle and unassuming and defers to me on everything. He is kind of growing on me (I'll let him closer once he gets groomed tomorrow 'cuz now? que huele!

Anya said...

ConCATulations on your award :-)

woof woof friend ....

Ok, no schooling AND no bath! Stinky and no party manners and it stays that way until Dr. Julia says Quinn is cured of his cough! And I thought it was bad when mom has to argue with the teenaged boy about showering! On the other hand, I get groomed tomorrow and will be clean, fluffy and smell like a tropical garden! Is that fair?

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The meds are already helping Quinn to cough less. I think that is good news. I left him in charge of barking at the mailman because I was at the grromer today and mom says he didn't even wake up from his nap when USPS came! Sometimes I think he is a slow learner...but mom tells me to be more patient that Quinn has been through a lot. But geez, EVERYONE knows to bark at the mailman!

Parsley said...

I still don't get your posts even though I follow but I found you! How have you been Suka and K?

Anya said...

Have all a relaxing weekend

Hugs Kareltje =^.^=

Parsley said...

Hey Suka...ever get sprayed by a skunk on your adventures? If so, what did K do? Rosie got it again and this time she was in her own territory!

Denise said...

That truly is a perfectly deserved award! I see you have your leash so you won't run away! Silly Suka. The photos look terrific!

Sallie said...

Congratulations!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Just wanted to say hi and to let you know I am thinking of you! Hope all is well. Quinn is not yet trained (by me) to the point of bringing me back yummy things to nosh, like Silvius does, but he is learning lots of stuff!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Hi my friend,
Just when I thought Quinn was going to be a great brother...he bit mom! SHE's not mad at him but I AM! After all we've done...all mom was doing was putting his harness on for a walk! Mom says Quinn has bad memories and demons that he needs to work through but still...

Suka,

Sorry about the 1st comment. My mom made a type-o and insisted on starting over. Congratulations on your award! You visited us after we lost Ziggy and we really appreciated hearing from you. It's taken awhile but we wanted to stop by and visit. My mom says you remind her of Ziggy, especially your ears!

I have missed you, my friend! I hope all is well with you, K and the rest of your family. Happy St. Patrick's Day (even though I am not Irish)...may all of the "snakes" be driven from your life and may you rest in an entire field of lucky four-leaf clover!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Hey, Suka! Stop by my blog; I have a special award I want to share with you! Missing your wisdom and your gentle words.
