The Versatile Blogger Award

I am so honored that One Pibbles Wish gave me the Versatile Blogger Award.  Before I pass the award on I am supposed to tell you seven things about myself (sorry if its a bit dull)

1).  I always wanted a dog as a kid but my mom is afraid of them.  When I got married my mom and dad gave us Tubby as a wedding present, that was 10 years ago.

2).  My cat Baby was my first pet as an adult.  I had two cats, Munchkin and Cleo, growing up.   My husband and I got Baby when we moved to Brooklyn after we graduated from college.  She is now 11 years old.

3.) My favorite yearly event in Manhattan is Meet the Breeds.  

4.) I am a terrible driver, however, I do like bicycles.  I ride my folding commuter bike from Bike Friday to work every day.  I ride to the train station in Jersey City, fold it, and then get of in Manhattan and unfold it and ride it to the school I teach at.  Now that I am on summer break I ride it for fun.

5.) I love to eat and I'm always trying new restaurants.  My favorite thing about New York is definitely the food.

6.) I'm a science fiction and fantasy nerd and have a big collection of my favorite shows and movies on DVD.  If I like them I can watch them a 100 times  I am very excited about the new Harry Potter movie.  

7.) One of my dogs is a rescue, one is a semi-rescue (she was returned to the breeder), and three are from breeders.   I support responsible breeding and rescue.  Bob my bulldog comes from red brick bulldogs and his breeder is really terrific.   

There are lots of wonderful blogs so its  hard to pick 7 to pass this on too, but here it goes:
