The Hug Award

The other day I got this very special award from the Sheriff of Blogville the one and only Sarge.  

This is what he said about me and it makes me blush and very proud that my Boss should think of me this way.:

To you, BERT, I pass on this award. I feel you deserve this for all of your years of tireless service as a Search and Rescue volunteer. This is a true gift to the world and even in your retirement you continue to give to humans with your therapy work. Man-kind should be grateful to you and I find you to be an inspiration. Thank you for being a good furiend and I bestow The HUG Award to you.

The HUG Award© is for people with an expectant desire for the world, for which they: Hope for Love; Hope for Freedom; Hope for Peace; Hope for Equality; Hope for Unity; Hope for Joy and Happiness; Hope for Compassion and Mercy; Hope for Faith; Hope for Wholeness and Wellness; Hope for Prosperity; Hope for Ecological Preservation:  Hope for Oneness

Please, if you get a chance go to The Hug Award website to read more about this award.  Thank you Sarge.  I wish I was better with words so I could tell you what this means to me.

Mazel tov on your well deserved award, Bert. Abby says we have to also offer congratulations to Allred.

Pouncey the Sumo Cat and I caught up with another Allred Horcrux and 'persuaded' him to take a nice boat ride with us. We happened to come across a school of hunting Great White sharks. Did you know they sometimes hunt in packs and coordinate their attacks? They mistook Allred for a really furry baby seal when he 'accidentally' fell into the water. One more Horcrux down, two to go. So don't worry if you don't see Allred for a while, Bert. Or ever again.

CONGRATULATIONS to YOU and Your Vickie Bert. TRULY deserved.

So after reading Jed and Abby and Pouncey's comment.. I guess that means that Allred is gonna be Shark Poop soon. I don't know if that is a GOOD or Bad thingy.

GOOSE said...

As if you don't get enough hugs as it is. I mean all those hospital workers and patients. Not to mention everyone you walk by. AND from my MOM. Don't think I don't know she hugs you, oh I know my friend.
With that said, there is no other dog I know that deserves this more. Heck when I see ya I want to hug ya in a I can out run ya brotherly sort of way.
Looking forward to our outing today if MOM gets her act together and can take some time off work.
Congratulations Bert.
