national dog day

today is national dog day. a day to "bring attention to the plight of animals and encourage adoption." i don't know how y'all ended up at your forever homes but bailey was a stray. she was found running loose on the streets. can you imagine? poor little thing.

in my adult life, i have had 3 dogs: my first (rocky) was from a breeder but my next two (kibbles & bailey) were rescues. in 1995 when i was looking for our second dog, i went to the shelters. i was there every week. i've seen the conditions they live in and i've seen the sadness in all of their eyes first hand and it was heartbreaking. i wasn't looking for a specific breed but i was looking for a specific size, so it took a while. when i finally found kibbles (a dachshund mix), my search was over but the search to find a home for all the shelter dogs will never be over. there just aren't enough people willing to adopt from a shelter. if you are looking to adopt, please at least consider a "pound puppy."

give your pooch an extra smooch today and tell them it was from me!

until we meet again my friends-


  1. I agree, Bailey IS one lucky pup! Happy National Dog Day! DakotasDen

  2. Yes, please adopt a dog or cat from a shelter and give them a forever home. They have many to choose from.

  3. I wish I had superpowers and get all those dogs out of the shelters and find them a nice home. If only breeders would stop being greedy and stop selling puppies. 😪
