National Dog Day

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 🙂

Rocky’s Nut Brunch

Brigham Young University has a very strict dress code.  Of course, you might see a single ear piercing in each ear on a woman but more than likely no more than that.  And of course, none in men.  You won’t see tattoo’s either and no tank tops bearing midriffs. And you won’t see any of the colorful hair designs or spiked hair that you might see at some other colleges.  But here’s something you might not know.

Male students enrolled at Brigham Young University need a doctor’s note to grow a beard.  Yep, you heard that right.  It’s in the Brigham Young University honor code.  No beards.  Men can have a trimmed mustache – but no beard.  The only exception is for medical reasons and then there is a step by step process to get approved to grow a beard.

Thoughts?

Memorial Day

20130507-222103.jpg

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States. On this day, which occurs every year on the last Monday of May, we remember the men and women who have died while serving our country.

Many people on this day will visit cemeteries and memorials placing an American flag at graves to honor our fallen heros.

Let’s remember that appreciation is not only one day out of the year – it’s year round.

Thank you to all of those who have died while serving our great country! I think this picture says it all.

Wags and Waves for Forrest Day

Welcome my friends to Wags and Waves for Forrest Day!  This day was put together by our Auntie Sharon of Gentle Stitches.  It’s a day created to help our friends Fozzie and her family at All Fur One and One Fur All  in the loss of their anipal Forrest (06/06/2003 – 04/27/2016) who is now an angel watching over all of us here.

Today, we are wagging and waving our tails as a tribute to a great guy in support of his family who is going through a rough time – as you can imagine.

Please my friends – I hope that you support the cause and do a posting on your blog today for this cause.  And if you get a chance, go visit Fozzie at  All Fur One and One Fur All  and let them know you are thinking of them.  You can also use this awesome badge that Sammy from One Spoiled Cat created.

 


And here we are my friends – our participation to Wags and Waves for Forest Day.  We know pal that you are watching over our Mouse Girl. ❤

Please Join us for Anipal Appreciation Day

 Attention fellow anipals and humans.  Me and my Cousin Sammy have collaborated together to initiate Anipal Appreciation Day scheduled for February 15, 2016.  What better time to get together and share the love than the month of February.

Whether you are a cat, a dog, a horse, a bird, a bun bun, a pig or a human – let’s get together for a day surrounded by love.  Why wait for the could have, should have or would have after one of us crosses the Rainbow Bridge.  Let’s celebrate life now and let each other know what they mean to us.

For example, my Cousin Sammy.  I’ve known him for years now.  He is a great guy – a bestest friend and always willing to lend a helping paw.  He goes out of his way to make you feel loved and welcomed even though at times I know he doesn’t feel well.  And you know what?  He gets that from his humans.  And technically, he and I *may* be related somewhere down the road with his parents and my parents being second, third or fourth cousins or something.  So there’s a shout out to my buddy.

This is what we are asking you to do.  Join me and Cousin Sammy on February 15, 2016. The rules are as follows:

Rules for Anipal Appreciation Day:

  1. Post your Anipal Appreciation Day blog on FEBRUARY 15, 2016.
  2. Title your blog Anipal Appreciation Day.
  3. Put the badge below on your blog post for the day.
  4. Give shout outs not only in the posting of your blog but throughout the day with the comments you may get.  There is no set number of shout out’s you are required to do – let your heart lead you.  We are *not* leaving anyone out.  If you don’t make the post on a blog, be sure to check messages and comments throughout the day that people and anipals might leave.
  5. If you can, link back your shout outs in your blogs for them to find.
  6. HAVE FUN!  This is the most important rule – have FUN and share the LOVE!

Don’t Forget Your Veterans!

20121112-082753.jpg

Don’t forget to thank a veteran!  We live due to veterans fighting for our freedom.  They are much appreciated, not just today, but everyday!

My country,’ tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing;
land where my fathers died,
land of the pilgrims’ pride,
from every mountainside let freedom ring! 

My native country, thee,
land of the noble free, thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
thy woods and templed hills;
my heart with rapture thrills, like that above. 

Let music swell the breeze,
and ring from all the trees sweet freedom’s song;
let mortal tongues awake;
let all that breathe partake;
let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.

Our fathers’ God, to thee,
author of liberty, to thee we sing;
long may our land be bright
with freedom’s holy light;
protect us by thy might, great God, our King.

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.

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
