Today, August 26th is National Dog Day!

This is a day set aside to celebrate the wonderful and beautiful best friend of man! The DOG! Here's the deal and I can not think of a better day! According to National Dog Day.com-

 "It's aim is to honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It was founded in 2004 by National Dog Day Foundation. National Dog Day wishes to encourage dog ownership of all breeds and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and ”abuse-free life”.

It's no secret that I am a lover of animals and it's also no secret that I have 2 rescue dogs, adopted from the shelter. Lushious, is a 7 year old female Border Collie and Rightious, a 7 year old male Australian Sheppard. For those that know the breed, these are working or herding dogs and are some of the brightest and smartest breeds.  I'm not just saying that because I'm partial to my dogs, it's a fact.

Staff

I am supportive of any and all non kill shelters. Dogs perform so many services from medical to companionship to protecting and serving our country in combat situations. They also serve in law enforcement.

Today is a great day to consider going to the shelter and make a quality decision of adding some enjoyment to your life. The quality of life is much better with a dog!

On your way home today, pick up a special treat for FIDO!
