The Liebster Award

Ok, our newest bff nominated Pit Bulls and Other Animals for a Liebster Blog Award! For those of you, like us, who do not know what the Liebster Award is, please read the following excerpt from:

EMT April 10, 2013 at 9:05 AM Hello! Just stopping by to let you know I have nominated your blog for a Liebster award.

So our nominator is The Five Dog Blog

Please visit for all the information!

So, we have a couple of minutes and here goes....

The following was excerpted from The Five Dog Blog:

I'm relatively new to the blogging world and was not familiar with the Liebster Award and what it

really meant. So I jumped on my trusty Google browser and started searching. Most of the entries were other blog posts from blogs that had also received this award, so it seems legit :). I like awards. And the Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 200 followers to help spread the word about their blog. I like followers :).
I figure it's kind of like a chain letter - a blogger to blogger award. And even though it's a chain letter, it's still fun to get to know other bloggers! Apparently, liebster is a German word meaning sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Seriously, that is a lot of  adjectives for one damn word! Maybe some of my German friends can tell me if that's a real translation or just chain letter nonsense.

LuLu and Nolan...a GREAT love story....

Nolan looking for love....
Nolan came to Reunion Rescue just barely missing having become yet another Spindletop victim. When we got Nolan, he weighed less than 70 pounds and was very sick. High heartworm positive among other maladies, Nolan has made a miraculous recovery.

Once he put some meat back on his bones, Nolan went to Doug's for lots of fresh air and exercise with the other dogs at the daycare. LuLu was abandoned at Doug's, but she was not sad for too long.

LuLu is a gorgeous GREAT Pyrenees and Nolan is a GREAT Dane/American Bulldog mix. These two have become best friends forever. The other day, LuLu had a much needed grooming appointment. Nolan spent the entire day looking for her.

What we've seen between LuLu and Nolan has prompted Reunion Rescue to only consider adopting Nolan and LuLu
LuLu and her Nolan...
together. They are large breed dogs, both with GREAT in their names. That's appropriate, because they are GREAT dogs.

Both dogs are raw fed, crate trained, mellow, super dog and people friendly and full, full, full of love.

LuLu and Nolan have a Facebook page:

If you want to learn more about our incredible program, check out namely the Health Page.

Nolan and LuLu are available for adoption...together! Both are linked to our website.

Imagine sharing your world with these two lovebugs where every minute of every day is a joyful one.

Always happy...
