What is are the Petties Awards
Be a part of the 2011 Petties Awards, Dogtime’s annual celebration recognizing excellence among animal-loving bloggers of all stripes. The Petties are the only awards nominated by, voted for, and presented to individuals in the pet blogging community. The best part? Winners are honored with a $1,000 donation to the shelter of their choice — it’s our way of saying thanks for making a difference!
My original thought process was that I would not participate this year. Let’s face it we are Two Little Cavaliers not a powerhouse dog blog like Life with Dogs. Nor do we have the interaction from our readers like Pawcurious. We aren’t a 24 /7 rescue blog and while cats do get some mentions on our blog we aren’t a cat blog by any stretch of the imagination. But then I read about the new categories and really thought about it.
How cool would it be to get our amazing Blog Designer some recogniztion for the incredible work she did on our blog? The decision was made we would go for Best Designed Blog and if we make it to the finals invite our Designer to come to BlogPaws in case we win so she can accept the award with us. If she can’t come then she can watch the awards ceremony which will be broadcast live and invite her other clients to watch as well.
We would of course allow her to choose where the $1000 donation will go and she would be able to tell all of her future clients her Design won a Petties.
So there you have it we would love to be Nominated for Best Blog Design which means you need some more information from us in order to fill out the form.

Remember to check the box that says Best Designed Blog and briefly say why you think we should win. It can be something as simple as great design. Davinia and Indiana are awesome.
