National Dog Day August 26, 2017

Real Estate Agent with Kelly Right Real Estate

Today is National Dog Day.  I know when I was a kid, we did not have dogs until I was in elementary school (a long time ago).  My sister and I really wanted a dog and our parenOur dogsts finally relented, along with some rules.  The dog arrived, then another and the rules just kind of went away on their own.  Since then, I have had a dog except for grad school and my five-year Fortune 100 corporate career.  

Here are our current mutts, all of them rescue dogs. 

  1. Jessa is our tiny, but does not know better, feisty Miniature  Pinscher and my wife's little Princess
  2. Jax, our New Foundland, who is camera shy.  Not sure how we were able to get this picture
  3. Chance is an Australian Shepard (Chance is short for Tinkers to Evers to Chance, the Chicago Cubs Hall of Fame double play combination)
  4. Tucker is a Red Heeler (Austrailian Cattle Dog) who is very vocal and protective.
  5. We also have a Norwegian Forest Cat, Cashew, who goes on hikes with the dogs and runs to me when I'm calling for the dogs. Guess that makes him an honorary canine today.


Here are 20 Ways to Celebrate National Dog Day

Every day is dog day to my Henri and when reminded of a dog day I remember those no longer with me.

Joe, I agree with you about remembering dogs who have passed; they are always part of the family.

Can't say I'm a fan of dogs, but that cat -- that is what has my attention. Hope you enjoyed National Dog Day.

My two goldens don't need a designated day either.  They get spoiled everyday just like Joe Pryor 's Henri.

You have beautiful dogs.

Our beloved Samantha the Wonder Dog passed away this past June. We're not quite ready to adopt again, but we will be someday!
