White Dog wants to thank everyone at Swimtaxi1234 for sharing this award with us. Coming from new friends, we are touched and honored that they found us worthy of such distinction. The entire White Dog Army tries very hard to maintain the honesty and quality of what we post and appreciate the encouragement that we receive.

Quinn, The Other White Dog, our shy boy, will celebrate his very first Gotcha Day this coming weekend. (Of course, there will be a Comment-A-Thon to celebrate). In honor of this wonderful upcoming event...and because the beautiful White Dog of Love, Daisy Mae, is visiting again tonight...we will let Quinn have the spotlight.

Seven things you may not know about me:

1. I do not like most dog treats, the exceptions being real jerky (not the pressed stuff) and cheese crackers.

2. I love standing outside in the rain or snow.

3. I do not like staying in hotels. The strange noises and unfamiliar smells and lack of a doggie door make me VERY nervous. I am much better staying at rental houses.

4. I am so camera shy that I once hid in the bushes and refused to come out while on a walk when dad and I passed a family taking a group photo in front of their house!

5. Even though it is totally allowed in our house, I will not get up on the furniture when anyone is watching. Sometimes when the humans are not home or are busy in other parts of the house, I will nap on the couch but the minute I hear them, I hop down and run outside.

6. I am totally a daddy's boy. My dad is the best and when he is home I stick to him like velcro.

7. Momma calls me her "Miracle Boy" because of the incredible luck and all of the amazing strangers and all of the perfect moments that came together to save me from Death Row and bring me to this family.

I know I am not the most cooperative for photo opportunities and that I still keep much of my story locked away, but I know I am one of the most blessed pups in the Universe because despite my reluctance you have taken me into your hearts and your lives. Thank you for welcoming me into this community and for becoming my extended family. A rescue dog, like me, prays and hopes for a chance at a real forever family. I got the perfect one PLUS all of you. How cool is that? Please visit me this Saturday for my celebration.

The Mighty Quinn.

P.S. The Honorary White Dog's (Dragon) new brother pup finally has a name: Sen-ge, which is Tibetan for "Tiger." So welcome, Sen-ge, may you grow and flourish in your new forever home.

hey White Dog Army,

Congratulations on your pawsome award! You so deserve it! What great new friends you have to acknowledge you and your blog with such prestige!

Quinn, that was a very sweet and honest "7 Things" list. I love that you love to stand outside in the rain and snow! Very cool! And I find your camera shyness curious, but that is one of the things that makes you so unique and special!

Can't wait for your big Gotcha-Day event! I am so furry happy that you found your forever home, and that you are my friend.

I love your award!

I love the list about Quinn. It's odd that he's so shy of cameras... I can see how that would make photo ops with him almost non existent.

I can't wait for his very first Gotcha Day Celebration.

We had a dog who used to sneak onto our couch (that's the only place that's off-limits to our dogs), and we'd catch him by feeling the cushions for the warm spot that he left behind. He's departed to the Rainbow Bridge now but his warm spot in our pack remains.

Congratulations on your award - and to your mom who has a pup that can stand the rain!

You know what we can be very good friends because we have something in common... we both love to hide from the camera. As a matter of fact I prefer to stay in my rabbit hutch and nap.
