It's Knox here. My mom told me to put "y'all" in the title to get your attention and I hoped it worked! I just had to share the news about my mom's big award with you and thought it was only fitting that I write her "whoopee" discussion. I would hate for you to think that it's all about me, but I want to make it perfectly clear that FLASH had absolutely NOTHING to do with her getting this award. She earned her addicted status back in April, LONG before he weaseled his way into our lives. Clearly, her addiction can be fully attributed to ME...well, me and perhaps a few random rescues. I can remember when she happened across this crazy site. It was in the Spring of 2010 when I was only a few months old and she lurked around for quite a while before ever saying a word. My dad says that he fondly remembers life before DK as that was when she still had time to clean, cook and do other things that I can't mention in mixed company. Nevertheless, my mom has met alot of friends -- local and far away-- for both of us, and what can be better than that? Why oh why she had to venture over to the DRC website is an question that I'll save for another day, but suffice it to say that my mom has enjoyed every bit of being a member of DK and is thrilled to officially be a HOPELESS DOODLE ADDICT! Just between you and me, she has always been a bit HOPELESS, but now she has something legitimate to attach to it...sort of.
Before I show you the pics that Christine (Shelby's mom) took, I want to thank Ginny and her gang for sending us such a nice package! Flash and I LOVED the toys and treats and mom says that she's anxious to try the goodies that Ginny sent for her. If I gave kisses to anyone, I'd give one to Ginny for the great surprises!
Now for the pics. Please ignore Flash. I really wanted this to be a "Mom and Knox Event" but he kept butting in. Even Courtney thought that she needed to make an appearance and since she's old and mean, I didn't argue.
I'm not good at putting captions where they need to be, so let's just go from the beginning to the end...
My mom said to tell all of y'all that she's so honored to have this award and that it will be making its way somewhere soon! I'm secretly hoping that she will send Flash along with it : ) Just kidding...sort of...
You did a great job, Christine!
Knox you did such an awesome job writing this, and I LOVE all the pictures (especially the one with you, Flash and your Mom). Those are some great surprises from Ginny and her "pack". Tell your Mom I'll be buying her some "umbrella drinks" to celebrate!
Miss Jane, my mom said to tell you to bring those 'lil umbrella drinks on! She's looking forward to collecting more umbrellas with you!
Hi Knox!!! You're looking happier these days! Congrats to your momma on her new HDA status!!!
i love your bandana! Flash's too!!! I can't keep mine on for too long because Bender starts tugging at it GRRRRR.
Zoe, thanks for the nice congrats! Has your mom tried a dog buff instead of a bandana? It goes around your head and is harder for bothersome brothers to yank off!
Congratulations! And welcome to the club. The pictures are great!
Thanks, Leslie! Christine gets all of the photo credit!
Thanks, Sue! Flash actually kissed the trophy too but Knox didn't want to include that pic!
Oh, Finnley, I must say that you seem to like my metro-doodle style better than the shaggy doodle look that Flash, Vern and Jack (just examples!) sport! You like your men cleaned cut, don't you?? I'm starting to think that you may be my perfect Valentine! Let's not let the distance between us get in our way!
Give your mom a message from my mom, please. She thinks your mom is hopeless already, despite her DK status!
