Turn up your volume and listen to my tunes..wooooof!

I am dog. I believe in unconditional love. I do not settle for infatuation or puppy love. I believe in true love to the end. I am a life-long lover who will lie at your feet, on the bed, by your chair, at your side. I am dog. I insist on your love. I will stay on a grave of a lover until my end. I believe in commitment. When we have chosen each other, I will be there for you with plenty. Out of my heart flows life and love. You fill my life with abundance and I am fulfilled. Unconditional love is the highest gift. I am committed to love.

My first award!

Kirby here!

Wow, this is my first blogger award! Thank you to 24 Paws of Love: and Honey Buzz: (sorry guys, mom hasn't figured out how to do the name and link thing yet.) You guys are great!

So now I need to share 7 things about me.
1. My name could have also been Finnegan, mom would have called me Finn for short OR I could have also been named Sonny (my mom's name is Cher....get it....Sonny and Cher!). But name was voted on by my mom's family and Kirby won by a landslide!
2. I eat Nutro Natural Small Bites Lamb and Rice dog food! Yummy! I have ate this since I first got home from the shelter and have loved it since!
3. I go for two walks every day. In the morning, I regrettably get out of my warm bed and go keep my mom company on her walk and then when she gets home from work we go for a walk again. In the summer it's actually three sometimes because if it's super nice we will go later in the evening too because it stays lighter out later.

4. I sleep in mom's bed at night. I have a special blanket at the foot of the bed, but at first I start out by mom so she can pet and rub me (this helps her to sleep) and then when she dozes off I move down to the foot of the bed.
5. I will pose for any kind of picture if a treat is involved. You can put Santa bears by me, toys, tennis balls long as I get a treat in the end!
6. I skip breakfast in the morning. I didn't always used to, but for the past couple of months, after mom takes me out for my morning pee, I RUN back to the bed and go back to sleep. Don't worry I get 3 treat balls during the day so it's not like I'm starving or anything.
7. I love to chase snowflakes! In the morning if it is snowing and the snowflakes hit the lights just right they look like little bugs or something and I love to go after them!

So hopefully you learned some new things about me. Now I must pass this award onto 15 more awesome blogging doggy dudes. (Again I apologize because mom hasn't figured out how to do the name/link thing yet).

According to Gus:
Pip gets back in the game:

All you bloggers have to do is put this award on your blog, thank the blogger that sent it to you, tell us 7 things about yourself and then pass it onto 15 other bloggers!

So stop by any of these blogs and check them out!



  1. Thanks so much, Kirby! We're honored:-)

  3. Thanks so much for the award!!! We are very happy here!
    Congratulations on your award too!!!

  4. Thank you, Kirby! This is our first award and we're glad it came from such a cute dogger!

    Gus is just like you at bedtime. He falls asleep up by us and then moves down in the middle of the night. We put a blanket at the foot of the bed too! It sounds like Gus and Kirby have a lot in common :)

  5. Thanks Kirby:)

    You did a great job for your first award. I'm sure you'll get many, many more.

  6. Thank you Kirby, we mentioned you in our blog tonight and linked back to your webpage. Mum got too tired to list 15 friends to give the award to, but she did get our 7 news worthy secrets on the blog! LOL!

    Love, Dozer and Cooper

  7. Thank you Kirby & Mum! This is most kind of you. :))

    I didn't know any of the seven things about you, all very interesting "Finnegan". Hehehehe. ;P

    I had a little giggle at your blog description - "The adventures of a mutt that has made his way to the sunny side of the street!" Then there is a picture of you in the snow! :D

    Cuddles & licks,
    and thank you again,
    Love Miley xxx

    P.S. To do the name-link-thing, when you post, highlight their name, and then push LINK in the toolbar.. then you paste in the link. :o)

  8. Hi Kirby! Congrats on your award and thanks so much for passing it on to me! I sleep at the end of my parent's bed as well - though I never skip breakfast or any other meal or treat. I LOVE to eat!

    Thanks again! You are a great friend!

    Your pal, Pip

    Your Pal,

  16. You did a super awesome job Kirby! I just knew you would!! I sleep on my mom's bed too. I demand to sleep under the covers. If I don't get my way, I will dig at the blankets until my maid, I mean my mom, lifts the blanket for me!

    Big slurps, HoneyBuzz

  17. Huge congrats and thank you so much! :)

  18. Hi Kirby,

    Congratulations & thanks so much for passing the award on to me! :-)

    That was a great post - I loved learning all those new things about you! I like the story about all the different name possibilities you had. And that's funny how you dive straight back to bed in the mornings! :-)

    Thanks again and I will try to post about this soon (I've got a couple of other things in the queue first!)

    Honey the Great Dane

  19. Sorry we are so late (mom is super busy these days). We feel very special to have received this award from you! I have many, many things I want to share about myself...I'll have to try and get mom to bump it up on her long list of things to do. We are so neglected!! :(
