I am truly honored for having received from bumpyroadtobubba The HUG Award© (Hope Unites Globally)


Thank you my friend! It could only have come from someone as special as you!


As you may guess by the name, this is a very special award and I quote:


“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


The HUG Award© recognizes and honors those who help keep hope alive in our current world, which is plagued by war, natural disasters, and economic recession. They nurture hope, in any of the above areas (in italics), by the work they do, or in their personal lives with things such as blogging, public speaking, charity work, etc.


The HUG Award© is for anyone, anywhere in the world, who meets the guidelines and wants to be nominated for the award. Please leave a comment on this page if you are interested in receiving this award, or if you would like to nominate someone else for the award.


The HUG Award© is for people who, without giving up or compromising their own religious, spiritual, or political beliefs, are able to nurture hope and respect the dignity of all people.


The HUG Award© is for those who, without bias or prejudice, use their resources and gifts to make the world a better place for everyone.


The HUG Award©is for people who have a hope or an expectant desire that the work or talents they use in things such as blogging, public speaking, charity work, etc., will make a positive impact on the world.”


You can read all about its origins, purposes and rules here.


Once this award is not blog specific, I will hand my first HUG Award© to my uncle Ste, an animal lover who fights everyday for the wellbeing of all the creatures of this planet and probably one of the purest souls I’ve ever met.


The next HUG Award© goes back to bumpyroadtobubba, a living example of HOPE and LOVE.


Another HUG Award© is for this incredible Facebook group called Dane Yard, a place where so many great people share their stories and love for their Danes and help and support one another.


And then, some more HUGs to these blogs I’ve come across and got hooked on for so many reasons:



I believe I handed them well and hope they do the same.


Hopeful slobbers,
