The Prized Princess


I have been given another award!!

Astonishing isn’t it?

Award by award I am creeping up to my goal of a reality star. I shall have my name in lights. Paparazzi will ‘dog’ my every move.

First of all the most important thing. To thank Taylor who gave me this award I Adopted A Dog – Now What? .

Taylor is a rather fetching Scottish terrier/Dachshund who also happens to be all black which as you know is really essential. Everyone should have that little black dog (LBD) in their lives πŸ™‚

I am thrilled to have another award but of course now come the rules which I am not so thrilled about.

The first rule is to thank the giver of the award – thank you, thank you, thank you to Taylor.

The second rule is to link back to the one who nominated you – Taylor – double done!

The fourth rule is to post the award (and no I haven’t forgotten the third rule I am exercising my prerogative to be ditzy).

The third rule is to talk about why I blog. That is really simple. By accident! Truly. It was Zac. Most of you know my pal Zac began blogging earlier this year and none of us realised what a short time he had left. We were devastated when the allergies and other health problems made his life intolerable and His Beloved could not continue blogging without him.

We had so many outpourings of love and sympathy from all who had got to know Zac a little that it was difficult to ignore them. So I stepped up and began to blog. It is an experiment. Zac’s Beloved still finds it tough and once or twice has almost given up.

Since stepping good naturedly into this role as a way to deal with my own grief, I have begun to realise that I have a place in the blogging world. I am not Zac. I am not a wise Tibbie. I am The Princess. I am ditzy. I panic. I am concerned about the way I look. I am fussy. I am an obvious celebrity!

So I have realised that this is my path to stardom. I shall be a Prominent Prestigious Pooch. My name will be in lights. I am in it for the fame, the fans and the fun! I am working with The Producer on a fashion line which I will bring you soon.

For now, back to the award. The last rule is the hardest. I have to name ten bloggers and let them know in the comments section of their blogs that I have nominated them. I have nibbled my nails to the quick with anxiety.

I know that some of you don’t enjoy receiving these awards and the accompanying ‘rules’ so if I nominate you and you don’t want to follow the rules that’s okay by me. If I nominate you and you already have it, consider yourself twice or even thrice acknowledged.

Here (drumroll) are my 10 nominees and ten blogs that I enjoy and if you don’t know them I recommend you take a look:

Clowie’s Corner

Jasper’s Doggy World

Lexi and Jasper the Great Danes

Sandyrobinson’s Blog

Firstpuppy (super-cute warning)

Hey…. It’s Jet Here

Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven


Okay, Okay. So I know that isn’t ten but my mind is about to blow up now and everyone else I follow seems to have this award already – that’s what I get for being the new kid on the block! Anyway a Princess is allowed to do what she likes – isn’t she?

These award ceremonies really stress me out and I have to say I didn’t think much of the goody bag The Producer gave me this time. She will have to do better in future. I insist on some liver treats in my dressing room. My comfortable bed at all times. The soft, SOFT brush for my tummy and no breaks for The Producer, constant tummy rubs.

And whatever you do do NOT leave me in the car!

Love from The Diva Princess


Author: Zena

I am The Princess (aka Zena), niece of Zac the All Black and awesome Tibetan Terrier who took me in when I was just a six week pup and tried to teach me all he knew. When I was six and he was eight, Zac crossed over the rainbow bridge and all of a sudden I was alone. I could no longer be the ditzy, happy-go-lucky pup that I had been. This is a diary of how one Princess managed when the world turned real.

  1. You know, I’m really glad that you have continued blogging and have found a way to do it with the Princess. Thanks for the award! πŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations! I’m glad you are blogging. Thank you for nominating me.

  3. We second that. Well done Princess – you’re doing it right! Give The Producer a little slack every now and then πŸ˜‰

  4. What? How can you say you are not a wise Tibbie? To recognize that you are truly a Princess and demand the finest things is quite wise indeed! Such beauty and brains in a LBD – Congratulations on yet another award Princess Zena!

    • Thank you. Perhaps you are right. It is a different sort of wisdom to Zac, I am not a deep thinker, I am a Tibbie of today. Social Media, attention seeking moments, living life out in the spotlight – that’s me!

  5. Congratulations Zena, you deserve it πŸ™‚ You are doing great and we all love you πŸ™‚ xx00xx

    • Hmmmmmm – is that a wicked laugh?
      Forgive me- I am nervous about the possibility of being Spooked by Mollie. I am in daily expectation and fear πŸ™‚
      But you are correct the slight look of disdain, the upward tilt of my nose (I practise in the mirror) – all these spell royalty.

  10. The crown suits you and we are glad you are blogging, we need royalty among us.
