TAGGED and we don't mean GUTENTAG

Flori tagged us and we are happy to participate! (She is the cutest German Labrador Retriever living in England we know!)

The tag requires us to list 8 random facts/habits - Dory and I are taking this on together as a project. These are some things that aren't generally known about us:

1. LEGS: Liza has an artifical knee made of titanium. Very cool but now she buzzes at the airport! Dory still has her dew claws on all four feet, not fun on nail clipping day.

2. HOMETOWN: Liza was born in but never LIVED in the state of Connecticut. Dory came from Northern Mississippi as a rescue dog and has the southern drawl to prove it.

3. TELEVISION: Liza never misses an episode of LOST or The Sopranos. Dory adores old reruns of PBS/BBC All Creatures Great and Small and enjoys the Dog Whisperer. (She makes a very funny face when she hears cows moo on TV!)

4. MOVIES: Liza is a huge fan of World War 2 movies like The Great Escape and Saving Private Ryan. Dory cries every time we watch Charlotte's Web and Homeward Bound.

5. HOBBIES: Liza's favorite hobbies are knitting and photography. Dory's favorite hobby is "surfing" - that is countersurfing and surfing the web!

6. FOOD: Liza loves Indian food, especially Chicken Tikka Masala. Dory loves pizza and raw lamb chops. (see hobbies above!)

7. MUSIC: Liza loves U2, Goo Goo Dolls and Bon Jovi (she's still stuck in the 80's). Dory's favorite hits include "Black Dog" by Led Zepplin, "Givin the Dog a Bone" by AC/DC and "Rubber Biscuit" by the Blues Brothers.

8. VACATION: Liza's favorite vacation spot is anywhere on Cape Cod as long as it is on the beach. Dory's favorite vacation spot is Gramma's house - it is dog friendly and everyone knows her name!

So here are the rules for those who I am tagging:

1. Each person tagged starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2. The person tagged blogs about each of these facts and posts these rules.
3. At the end of the blog entry, list eight people to get tagged.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged, and to read your blog.

I hate to do it but here is our "tagee" list - Maggie and Mitch, Peanut and Flash, Ruby, Boo Cassanova, Sparky, Kaos, Sophie and the Dachsies!
