National Dog Day

26 Aug

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Today, August 26th, is a great day for all of the pooches in the world.  Today is National Dog Day.  Today we shall recognize and honor all dogs, to appreciate the importance of having them in our lives.  Whether you have them as a personal pet, a working dog or you work in a place homing dogs, take this day and let them know how much they are valued.  Even if you don’t have a dog of your own, perhaps today is the day to fix that and adopt a dog for your household.

At the Hotel Thompson, we no longer have dogs that run around the back yard and house.  But, the human mother has had that need longing again for a baby to add to the house.  Who knows what will come of this.  The last time, they got the oinker.  🙂

Remember, dogs as well as other pets ask for nothing but love in return of you taking care of them.  They are always there when you are having a good or a bad day.  They lean their shoulder when you have a good cry and make you laugh with all of their antics.  They keep you company and protect their home.  Be sure today and every day – give them some extra hugs and cuddles and perhaps a favorite treat or two.

    I had no idea that was this day! I’ll tell Kane, Layla and text or face-time Bodie – of course, I’ll have to break out the treats. Thanks for keeping me informed! 🙂
