National Dog Day

26 Aug

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


What a great day to celebrate – National Dog Day!  Today’s celebration has two goals:

* To honor our glorious friends the dogs AND
* To rescue dogs from homeless shelters and abuse

Dogs are loyal and great companions to so many people.  They give us unquestionable love and are always there to cheer you up.  They offer free kisses (like Houdini here at the Hotel Thompson).  Humans and other anipals count on them in so many different ways.  There are dogs that are pets.  There are dogs that are working dogs – like those that help lead the blind and help in search and rescue.  Regardless of what type of dog you are, most humans count you as family.

Today, let’s celebrate the dog in your family.  If you don’t have a dog in your family, visit a friend that has one.  Or for that matter, why don’t you visit a shelter and visit with a dog there… maybe even take one home with you 🙂

And P.S. my friends –

We would like to send out a speedy recovery to our pal Easy’s dad.  We are so glad to hear that you are back at home and recuperating – now we can finally breathe!  It seemed like we were all holding our breath waiting to hear something about your condition.  Mom wanted to jump a plane to come be by your mom’s side so bad.  Please take it easy and take care of YOU – and hey – NO MORE ROOF TOP ADVENTURES okay.  XOXO
