3rd Annual Make A Dog’s Day is October 22, 2021

Dogs with physical differences on the outside are still one-hundred percent dog on the inside. Maybe they’re missing an eye, or a leg, but they’re not missing heart. All this month, Subaru is proud to be celebrating shelter dogs with special needs. These incredible Underdogs may be the last ones to be adopted, but they’ll be the first ones into your heart. And, as this commercial demonstrates, these inspiring Underdogs can still do all the great things we love about dogs. Consider adopting today.

Seasonal Lap Changes

We have had a major upset at my house with the change of seasons. Checkers, the Coonhound in the background looking like the world has ended, has taken her afternoon snoozle in my lap all summer because Rosie the Vizsla wasn’t interested. However, now that the weather is a bit cooler, Rosie is all about being a lap dog.

For the past couple of days, Checkers has been spending a lot of time barking and whining at the back door, but not wanting to go outside. I couldn’t figure it out until it finally dawned on me that we went through this last fall, too. Checkers hopes that she will entice Rosie to get off my lap to see what’s going on so she (Checkers) can jump up on me for her turn. Rosie is a year smarter now and isn’t falling for it, and I have yet to convince them that they will both fit at the same time.

Oh, the joys of having multiple dogs in the family!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
