The Original Only Friend Award!

My Aunt Mainey has a friend that we call "the Oof". Why is she called the Oof? I'll tell you a little story and you'll know why.

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:

The Musketeers
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!

  19. Hey there Sonic! Oof is a great idea! Great to see you - sorry we haven't been by for a while. Flat Brutus has just kept us SO busy. Speaking of which, he arrived safely in Singapore yesterday and is hanging out with The Musketeers! So he should be coming to see you really soon (then on to Coco in Kuala Lampur) - just wanted to give you a little extra advance warning (in case you want to build on a guest suite or something for him!).

    Brutus the Frenchie

  20. Hi Sonic,

    Happy to hear from you! Mommy says it's better to have one Good furrend then a bunch of furrends that aren't sooo good! And she's always right!

    Riley and Star.
