I got some fan mail a little while ago. I figured that some of you might have the same question... so here it is:
Subject: [Give a dog a blog] 11/12/2006 10:27:03 PM
now, don't take offense at me asking, but, how did you get your name??
Hi. It's Poofy here. First, I find it interesting that you don't even HAVE a name, yet you talk about mine...
Secondly, my correct title is: His Royal Highness King Poofy I, ruler of the entire doggie universe.
Well, okay, Leah corrects me and says that I was this fluffy-wuffy ball of fur, and she tried to say Puffy, but it came out Poofy because she was so overcome with emotion and was doing strange things with her voice. She also points out that I always seemed to like my name, although there are times I respond to being called Buffy or Spoofy.
It's important to note, however, that I am an Israeli dog, who lives with an American mom and a Canadian step-dad, so neither of them think of Poofy as having homosexual connotations. Especially not since I knocked up their friend's dog. I'm a proud father of 5!
Thanks for your concern, though!
Poofy P. Goodman
