Happy National Dog Day!

August 26, 2020

.

Did you do anything special for National Dog Day today?  Mummy said that she would read us a book, but that isn’t really SPECIAL, because she does that a lot anyway!  Does your Mommy ever read to you?  Mummy had this special harness made for me many years ago because it reminded her of a little poem that HER MOMMY used to read to HER when she was a little girl.  When she was little, she wanted a kitten REALLY, REALLY BAD… and one year for Christmas she FINALLY got one… and she named her kitten “INKY” after the little kitten in the poem.   You can see on my little harness that all of the characters from the poem are stitched on the front. It is really very special to me AND to Mummy because it reminds her of the times when her Mummy used to read to HER.  Now… getting back to NATIONAL DOG DAY, I think that after reading a few books, perhaps we need to get some extra SNACKS and maybe watch a good movie tonight!  That would be my choice for a great day.  What would YOU choose to do?

Happy Dog Day to you and your sisters, Millie! Isn’t that nice that Mummy reads to you. I read things out loud to my girls like the newspaper! LOL. I made them scrambled eggs for their special day!

Happy National Dog Day! Well my furry kids are pretty much disappointed because we had a sort of family crisis this afternoon and then I needed to mow the grass before any bad weather comes here tomorrow (they are calling for storms here) plus they are showing Hurricane Laura could head our way after she hits the south so we didn’t get to really celebrate. Are you in TN or SC? have you been visiting your place in TN?

Oh I am so very sorry about your family crisis! I hope everything is better now. We are in SC and praying hard for anyone in the storm’s path. We have been having work done on our place in TN so we have not been able to visit there but hopefully can get there soon.

Thank you so very much. When Mummy was a little girl she was always bringing home little critters of some sort… turtles, tadpoles, stray cats that would run off, and she was always finding baby birds for some odd reason. But she always wanted a little kitten. Who knew that one day she would grow up and have a houseful of YORKIES! We did actually have a kitty but she passed away several years ago.

Thank you very much… the harness was something that helped to remind her of the time she spent doing things with her own Mummy.

DEAR MILLIE,
 
HOPE YOU, YOUR SISTERS AND DOG FRIENDS HAD A DELIGHTFUL NATIONAL DOG DAY.
 
YOUR HARNESS THAT HAS THE CHARACTERS IN THE POEM ON IT IS LOVELY…ESPECIALLY ON YOU.
 
A COUPLE OF COMMENTS SENT TO YOU REMINDED ME HOW MUCH I LOVE HAVING MY MISTRESS’ UNDIVIDED ATTENTION WHEN SHE HAND-FEEDS ME SCRABBLED EGGS WITH MY VITAMINS MIXED INTO THEM, SHE READS MY EMAIL WITH ME AND WE WATCH ANIMAL VIDEOS TOGETHER.
 
WHEN DO YOU HAVE YOUR MISTRESS AND/OR MASTER TO YOURSELF.

Hi Millie and clan
Sounds like you girls had a wonderful National Dog Day. Oliver had a great day also. We went for a long walk on the beach. His favorite place to meet all ibis fur friends.
Seems mommy and I had a kitten named Inky. I adopted him from a shelter.
Wishing you a happy healthy day!
Oliver and mommy

Millie and Mummy to celebrate Yankee had some steak, broccoli and cucumbers. BUT It’s just like any other day because he’s very spoiled! I don’t know if you and Mummy remember but Yankee only has one eye like Tulip. He lost it in 2016 right after we met you all kn Hershey Park, PA.

Hi Millie! Your harness is just beautiful! National Dog Day was also Maggie’s 3rd birthday. She got a new soccer ball and a few little balls that she loves to grab by the tags and shake them like crazy. Maggie and Lucy play catch with the football.

Hi Millie, My nanny, Jill, is with me now because my Mommy (who is a pharmacist) is working at an evacuation center up in Northern California where the fires are so TERRIBLE and SCARY! You and your parents and sisters met Jill once in Port Angeles, WA. Yesterday she took me for an extra walk to the park and we got to stay as long as I wanted to and then I got an extra piece of chicken jerky for my snack! It was ALMOST as much fun as being with my mommy. I hope you and your sisters got… Read more »

Millie, this is Jill, the lucky nanny for Miss Prissy. Yes, her mommy is truly an ANGEL! I picked her up at the airport yesterday and she said she hoped she could stay home for one week before going out again to help others. I hope she gets to do it, too! You’re right though, there are so MANY folks to pray for right now…we hope they will survive everything that’s coming their way. And now there’s a fire down here in the San Diego area. We (my cat Ivy and I) can smell the smoke from our home. We… Read more »

Happy Doggy Day to you from Lolly and my silly sister, Layla! We are all the lucky ones…we are so very loved. We need to think about all of the doggies out there who are in shelters or worse, on the street or being abused. They need our help.

That is so true on every count. Also, report any one who abuse their pets, leaving them without food and water, abandoning them, beating or kicking them, leaving them in a hot car – or just being cruel. These little guys have no voice so we have to be their voice. They depend on us for all of their needs.
