...and it's BISCUIT TIME!
...For all of you!
Mom and I have been pondering as to the greater meaning of 'BISCUIT TIME' and we came up with the idea that its not just about giving biscuits to us doggies in this household, but to extend our BISCUIT TIME...
TO OUR FURRY FRIENDS IN DOGGIE-BLOGGIE-CYBERWORLD!!!
We really do want YOU to know how special you are to us, so we thought of having an all-round moment in the form of this post to simply acknowledge you.
* To all our furry friends on our BLOG LIST -(even though you may not be specifically listed below); thank you for the enjoyment we get from reading your blogs and for sharing your lives with us. You provide immense excitement in our household by showing us your world and your ways!
* TO 'THOR': We give you Biscuits for giving us our first bloggie award! ...for being one of our first fur-friends and for bringing us amazing pictures of your walks.
* TO 'STELLA' and 'ALI-Z': For being the first doggie to REALLY encourage us and introduce us to the doggie world and helping us network. For always being so sweet and patient.
Ali-Z: You have given us real insight into the world of kitties. You are a great educator and have opened our eyes to your status amongst furry friends.
* TO 'PACO,MILO & MAYA': for extending your friendship into emails behind the scenes. Thank you for your gentle, encouraging natures and for bringing us stories and pictures of your wonderful countryside in Italy.

*TO 'MUSOLE'-the great soldier and lion dog- at RAFFINGORA in desolate ZIMBABWE. Thank you for inspiring us with your resolve to survive and for also reminding us that we have a responsibility to encourage others and to help them along the way. (We wait excitedly for more stories of the lion cubs!)
*TO 'MADD' : For one of the greatest bantering sessions ever! - even if it was with a CAT! For being my first South African commentator. For joining me in flying the South African flag and for helping me with my ommissions with the Tour Guiding stuff. We look forward to your blog too!!!
*TO 'LORENZA': For always being there. You have been one of the most consistent commentators and we truly appreciate it! We are inspired by your designer dresses and your sweet nature.
*TO 'MANGO': For giving us the greatest laughs ever! For allowing us to dissolve into side-splitting mirth and then to gently remind us of your goodlooking wrinkledness. We appreciate your intrinsic ability to deal with the irritations in life...(and Dexter - thank you for showing us how to deal with the complex and massive Mango!) ...Giant Biscuits for you, big guy!
*TO 'CLIVE' and "THE LITTLE MAN": For showing us another wonderful and fascinating world and allowing us to see it through your eyes.

We give you lots and lots of biscuits for being willing to share your house with others. You have shown your true colours in the acceptance of Tagpi. Thank you for sharing your world!
*TO MY FAMILY: Thank you for putting up with my blogging and eventually joining in in all the fun. Thank you, especially, to "The Boss" for paying for all of this!!! As you guys know, South Africa has the most expensive internet connection in the world, so a big thank you for letting me fulfill me creativity.
ENJOY YOUR BISCUITS!
HAVE A WONDERFUL AND BARKFUL WEEKEND!
