August 26: National Dog Day

Regular readers, sorry this is late! There’s been way too much sickness in our house lately. I hope you still have time to celebrate today!

Dog people, rejoice! August 26 is all about those furry four footers, thanks to the National Dog Day Foundation.

Dogs are definitely man’s best friend. Guard dogs, guide dogs, police K9 units, nursing home comfort and entertainment, the furriest member of any family . . . face it: who else jumps for joy when they see you?

If you’ve got a dog, spend some extra time playing fetch or going on a walk today. You can even toss in a extra treat when you get home. If you don’t have a dog, give your local animal shelter a call. They always need volunteers!

“How many are your works, O Lord!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.”

Psalm 104:24
