Introducing a Friend

Qannik is so incredibly honored.  He – and the rest of The Herd – were introduced in a very touching tribute on the Op Pack’s blog just yesterday.  Since he is such a fan of his older twin Dakota, he is almost embarrassed with all of the fuss:


Here is the deal.  Daisy had a birthday and her birthday wish was to make new friends via this contest:


Here are the rules:

We all have lots of blog friends, and often make new friends by looking at each other’s blogs. But sometimes there are so many, it’s hard to pick. So to enter our contest, we want you to put a post on your blog about one of your friends or group of friends, and why they are special. We are encourging you to pick someone who is not as well know, so we can meet some new friends, but you don’t have to. If you want to let us know about some special friends, that is alright too. When you make your post, please link back to our blog so anyone that wants to get in on the contest can find us. Also, please leave us a comment about your post, or drop us a pee-mail at [email protected].

Isn’t that cool?  We thought that was a really creative way to celebrate a birthday, so Happy Birthday, Daisy, and thank you to the Op Pack!

Qannik is now going to go dream about the beautiful Dakota:

    Hi Qannik,

    I wonder what was happening in your dream? Hmmmm were you two on a run together–chasing bunnies and squirrels. Or were you dreaming of chasing each other? Soooo romantic!

    I don’t know whose paws are next to Qannik in the second photo but I was beginning to think he had invented some new form of doga!
