Did you know?
I’m sure YOU did!
Seems everyone knew!
It was all over Facebook and Twitter.
Seems everyone knew…. (sigh)
Not sure how she could have overlooked the most wonderful day of the year…
Yesterday was National Dog Day!
August 26 – EVERY year! DUH!!!
You knew – right?!!??
And as much as I hate to admit – I do need Mom’s opposable thumbs to help type as I dictate my – err- “regular” blog posts here.
So thank you, Debi, for asking about me to remind my Mom I am missed by our lifeinbetweener friends here!
Sheesh! What is a dog to do?
Well – anyway – how did you spend National Dog Day?
Even though Mom overlooked this important day, I have to admit – I had a glorious day! My day included breakfast, naps, treats, donut time, jump on the bed time, a walk, dinner, some ear scratches and belly rubs, and a visit from the pizza delivery girl (it was Friday after all!).
What more could a dog want – right?
Here is a picture of me with one of my dog friends. This is Jager.
Jager is just a puppy – not even a year old – (even though he is quite a bit bigger than me already!) – so I have a lot to teach him since I am already 2. Jager can be a little bit annoying, but Mom tries to remind me that I was a pup once too (and annoying to older dogs – Really??!!). And puppies are really “exuberant!” They don’t quite understand when it is time to just “walk” versus time to “play.” They don’t quite know when it is time to “quit.” Pups don’t always understand boundaries and seniority and whose toys are whose, but I’ll teach him. That’s what older dogs do with younger dogs. It’s my job. I like jobs. It’s important to have a purpose.
We all have a purpose. Isn’t that great to know?
