ONEN Dog of the Year Award
The ONEN Dog of the Year Award began in 2010 to honor the neighborhood’s beloved canine friends. The first dog recognized as Dog of the Year was Charles Wentworth. Charles has an extensive track record of community service throughout the Old North End and Pikes Peak region, and remains active in many service capacities, in good health and good spirits. The 2011 Dog of the Year, Shilo, was recognized for service that included Christmas Treecycle, suicide prevention, cancer research, and youth sports.
To nominate the next ONEN Dog of the Year, here are the requirements: The nominee must
1. Live within ONEN.
2. Love to play and behave well with kids.
3. Be active in service to benefit the neighborhood and community
4. Have no outstanding issues with neighbors (excessive barking and/or howling, unwanted gifts in neighbors’ yards, chasing neighborhood cats, attacks on postal, newspaper or delivery employees)
5. Have a great disposition around other animals and people
The Dog of the Year will have his or her picture published in the ONEN newsletter and web site. ONEN will honor this recognition by donating 50 pounds of dry dog food to the dog’s animal charity of choice, and deliver a grab bag of healthy snacks to the new Dog of the Year.
To nominate a worthy dog, please prepare a 50-100 word essay explaining why this dog deserves such an honor, and include a photo. We will announce the winner at the neighborhood meeting in May.
