Not to be confused with National Mutt Day (confusing, yes?) Of course, I love dogs so much that we could have a dog holiday every day and I’d be fine with that. How about National Dog Treat Day? National Big Dog Day? National Dog Grooming Day? National Doggie Barking at the TV Day? (Okay, my dog loves to bark at the TV, especially when there is a dog on the show. She has still yet to figure out that dogs on TV are not real.)
For those among you with fur babies of the canine variety, a few resources that you might find handy:
For dog owners with kids
Free Animal Health Resources Web Sites
Dog’s health, behavior, care, training and socialization
National organizations that provide financial assistance to pet owners in need
National Lost and Found Pet Database
Free doggie pics
And finally a video of dogs being dogs…
Treasure your pets because they treasure you.
And please pray for my friend Ruthie that she finds her beloved Gilbert.
So much that I made a batch of images with them. Feel free to share. Have a great weekend!
I love dogs. I don’t think there has ever been an extended period in my life where I haven’t had the companionship of a dog. I realized recently that just about every story I’ve ever written features a dog. My latest trilogy has dogs as a central theme. LOL, I just can’t get enough dogs. And please don’t take me to the pound with you to pick out a puppy because I will want to take all the dogs home with me.
Following are some of my all time favorite sayings about dogs:

I can’t help it, I’m so in love with new puppy Lily, I just had to post some pics. ❤
Unfortunately, I had to take them with my Kindle so the pics aren’t super sharp, but Lily was definitely enjoying her first chew bone. ❤
First, I’d like to say thank you to all of you who expressed sympathies about losing my dog Maggie last week. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me except to say, it meant a lot. So, thank you to everyone.
Going against my natural instincts, I decided to adopt another dog, rather than wait. I think that Maggie would’ve been happy about that. In fact, I am too. Because out of the deep sorrow I felt at losing my dog of 13 years, I am now feeling immense joy from the new puppy. Lily.
I will always have the old memories of Maggie – she was a remarkable dog – a remarkable ‘person’ and can’t be replaced. But Lily is a little white bundle of joy and I look forward to making new memories with her.
If you have lost a beloved pet, I empathize with you. Deeply. It is a profoundly sad experience. But if you are holding off in adopting a new pet, don’t. Please, don’t. There are so many wonderful animals out there just waiting to find a loving family. And you could be that family.
A day just for dawgs? Maggie and Emma think that’s super. Make a dog happy for life – adopt her from a local shelter or rescue. You won’t regret it. Dogs really are a man’s and a woman’s best friend. 😀
