Friday Fun with "Fans"

Two of our "fans", the Pointer Pandemonium and Honey the Great Dane, were so kind to send this Sweet Stamp Award to us.

The cuddly pointers tell us that the award says:
“Proven! your blog has sweetness.”

Thank you to all of you for this beautiful compliment.

Then Honey the Great Dane also offered us the Proximadade Certificate.

The award states that “This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time, and relationships!”

In other words, “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

We are so grateful to Honey for this fine opinion of us and our blog.

And another big thank you to Checkers and Nessa for giving us this lovely award as well. You can read here about why we love blogging.

It is so very hard to pick just eight of our blogger friends who deserve these awards. So please make us happy and accept our gift of these awards to all who are visiting us.

We do have another "fan" to share today. Dakota wanted you all to see what the good Mom did for her yesterday to keep her comfortable.

"Hi to all my wonderful furiends.
Thank you so much for being so nice to me."

Wishes from us to all for a wonderful weekend.

Woos, the OP Pack

You deserve all those awards - you are three gorgeous dogs. Dakota looks so happy in front of the fan, my paws are still crossed for her health.

I was thinking Thunder's markings are similar to mine - but I think he is bigger than me.

Dear OP Pack, I was wondering if you would be interested in having Miss Kylie's Pink Baby visit you for a day or two while she is in town... I'm sure she would like to meet all of you. I could post a link to your site on my blog for that day(s). What do you think? Hope you're having a nice weekend.. woof, tank
