We here at the Meadow have been out of the award business for a while for life has been rough here for a while and Dad was retraining, looking for a new job and time was short.  But, the rebound is hopefully under way and we were pleased and surprised to get an award from one of our favorites…. the piggies at:

LIVING THE SQUEEK LIFE which you can visit at;


When wheeeee discovered this cute blog full of lil piggies and read about their life we knew we had to keep coming back.  Their pig-english is terrific and funny and they are all so cute.  We love seeing what happens each day and the love their family has for them is very obvious! We want to thank our friends for this award and cannot believe this is their first award for their blog deserves to have every award ever conceived.  We plan on changing this so keep reading. 🙂

Whee collies saw that Wheee  have to follow some rules so here goes…

Name Ten Things About Ourselves-

1. The Meadow is a animal sanctuary in that wild life seems to know it is welcome here by Mom and Dad and many come here to die spending their last days being taken care of by our family. We have nursed many wild animals as their final days come and the piggies will be pleased to learn that the most unusual was a woodchuck who came and which Dad held and nursed till it passed away.

2. The first dog to live at the Meadow was a part collie named Chessie.

3.  The first cat to live here was Cheyenne.

4. With the exception of MacKenzie, Niamh, Lad, Branwen and the pups born here all our other collies were rescues from a friend who helped place them with us as a kennel shut down.

5. Members of our collie bloodline from the core group who inspired this blog have littermates or descendents living from the East Coast to the West Coast and from just across the river from Canada to Florida.  It is amazing how far the family has spread in less than ten years…..

6. The collies love cats… except for Branwen who.. well.. doesn’t like anyone… hehehehe

7. Yes, Ginger truly wants to rule the world……

8. Yes, Ginger does really plot and scheme to get what she wants… it is amazing to watch….

9. Dad’s favorite Terhune book is Gray Dawn.

10. The collies really do cheer when Liverpool scores, but that is because dad is cheering….. although some of them do listen to the games and we believe it is the crowd noise that fascinates them.

Now whee get to give this award!
