A long time ago, Aunt Mainey would only ever invite this one friend over to our place. So anytime my Momma and Pops would meet one of Aunt Mainey's friends, it would be her. After seeing only this friend for a long time, Momma and Pops decided to jokingly call her "the Only Friend." But as time went by, my Humans met more and more of Aunt Mainey's friends, so "Only Friend" became "Friend #1", as you could still count the amount of friends Aunt Mainey had on one paw.
Aunt Mainey and the Oof
Aunt Mainey swears that she has more friends than we know about, but Ostrich wisdom says that if you can't see them, they're not there.
Well, now Aunt Mainey has introduced us to a lot of her friends, so "Friend #1" is no longer a special enough title. That's when they decided to give her a new title, and that's how she became the Original Only Friend, or the Oof.
I remember when I started this blog, it was pretty lonely, and the only comments for over a month were from my Aunt Mainey and Aunt Jol. My Momma entered me into the DWB site, then after a while a pretty Mexican dachshund started to visit my blog regularly. Soon after that, a bunch of other dog-bloggers became my friends too, and I started getting more comments!
So in honor of the Oof, I decided to make an award to let these pawsome dogs know how special they are!
The Oof Award goes to the following dogs:
Martha and Bailey
Maggie and Mitch
I've since made a lot of other really special friends, and you're all really pawsome too... but I felt that I should do something extra for these dogs. Thanks to everyone out there for being my friends!
