August 26th National Dog Day

Created by the National Dog Day Foundation whose motto is “Saving 10,000 Dogs – One Day at a Time.” Anybody who reads the blogs I do on a regular basis knows I love dogs. I truly believe they are man’s best friend. They are able to serve us in so many ways but I think the main purpose they serve is just to love us humans. Save a dog if you are able, you won’t regret it. They will be your friend forever. It may take a little effort, particularly if it’s a rescue dog because you don’t know what they have been through or how they have been treated. Give them a chance and they will reward you beyond what you can ever imagine.

How to celebrate – Rescue a dog. Give your dog a special treat today. Take your best friend for a special outing today. Take plenty of pictures.

July 31st National Mutt’s Day

Who’s your buddy? It only seems right that after yesterday being International Day of Friendship that today we celebrate our true friends, dogs. Now the pure bred dogs are fun to look at but for a true friend, you require the half-breed, the mutt. This is a dog that has nothing to prove and often nothing to lose so they give you their all and often asking for only a small bit of you in return. I am a true dog lover. They are my best friends which makes me want to give them all I can. They celebrate with us on our highs and stay by our sides during our lows. They don’t care about about what kind of house we have or what kind of car we drive, whether we were the most fashionable or dress like a bum, they love us because… they love us. And the best of all is the mutt. They may not be pretty and they may never win a ribbon, but they will always be your friend.

Hot to celebrate – Love your dog. Adopt a rescue. Treat your dog like a King or Queen today.
