From BlogPaws: The “Nose-to-Nose” Awards is the only awards program in which pet bloggers and microbloggers are judged on their expertise, creativity, and performance in one or more of 12 categories by a panel of distinguished professionals. The BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards are not a popularity contest!
Nominations open at 12:00 PM EST on Wednesday, February 27th, 2013 - and close at 3:00 PM EST on Friday, March 8th.
Yep, that's right! You don't have to experience angst wondering who you are going to nominate, you can nominate ALL of your favorites in as many categories as you would like!
As an example, Cody and I have already begun nominating blogs in the categories of:
Best Wiggle Blog (for animals other than cats or dogs)
and you know what? There are a number of blogs that we feel are deserving in EACH category and we aren't going to just nominate one per category, we are going to nominate ALL of our faves for EACH category! That way, EVERY FURRY will be considered! How cool is that?
One thing that we love about the Nose-to-Nose awards is that even if you are just nominated ONCE, you are in the running, AND, you CAN NOMINATE YOURSELF!
Every blog that is nominated will be reviewed by the judges panel, but just once.
Please, please nominate ALL of the blogs/bloggers that you love for whatever category!

Now...here is where we have to eat some crow. A while back we blogged about how it was becoming confusing/cumbersome etc. to acknowledge every blogger that blessed us with various small blog awards that travel the net on a daily basis. We mentioned that we are deeply appreciative of the awards we were given by so many of you, YOU are the reason that we are here, but we couldn't devote multiple posts per week to the zillions of small blogging awards being created every day.
We are HONORED and FLATTERED that so many of you visit us on a regular basis, or even that you visit us at all! That being said, if there was a post that made you smile, a photo that you loved, a book review that inspired you to buy/read a book, a contest that you won, a product that you learned about here or anything else that you loved, that we work painstakingly and with all of our heart to share with you, we would be HONORED if you wish to nominate us for whatever category you see fit. Well, except best bark blog since this isn't a dog blog! MOL! Our chances of being a finalist or even of gasp, WINNING...are next to none, but it would mean the world to us if we were even to be considered.
Should you wish to nominate us and we THANK YOU if you do, you can click on each category that we mentioned above and it will take you right to the nomination pages.
