Dogs Saved by Aviators

Check out this video from NBC News about the Pilots-N-Paws organization. It’s worth watching (if for no other reason) to see the adorable puppies!

Pilots-N-Paws picks up dogs from shelters where they would be killed and flies them in small private planes to more urban areas where people are looking for animals to adopt.

What a great show of cooperation to keep these dogs from being euthanized!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Aug 26th is National Dog Day

Founder of National Dog Day Colleen Paige started celebrating and publicizing this day in 2004 in memory and honor of the search and rescue dogs who worked at Ground Zero. She wanted to encourage people to adopt shelter dogs, and her efforts have now gone international with six countries participating in the celebration in 2011.

So, join with dog lovers around the globe this Sunday and celebrate National Dog Day by adopting a shelter or rescue dog. If you can’t adopt, consider fostering or donating.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
