My Favorite Holiday!

Humans finally came up with a holiday I can sink my teeth into, so to speak. I mean, bark. Did you know that today is National Love Your Pet Day?

I mean, hey. After all the endless hours I spend guarding, playing with, walking, protecting, supervising and watching my humans and all the weird stuff they do (“Teeth brushing”? What’s up with that?), isn’t it about time I get some extra recognition?

You gonna eat that?

So today Mom’s making my favorite homemade treats. Come on, beef burgers!

We’re going to play chase the breakers at the beach and throw the ball and frisbee, too! Unless it’s snowing. Or pouring rain. Then we’ll just play in the weather!

Alright, who hid the ball?

Afterwards, I’ll curl up on my soft, fuzzy doggie blanket near the heating vent, all nice and cozy. Or even better: I’ll hijack and hog Mom’s blanket. If she’ll let me hop onto the recliner. Since it’s National Love Your Pet Day, that’s a pretty sure bet. Or I can always deploy my patented, never-fail, 100% guaranteed Adorable Puppy Eyes.

Not even Mom can resist that.

Is this place great, or what?

Check out my snazzy HUNTER ORANGE coat! It’s even waterproof!

How are you loving your four-legged buddy today?

It seemed like a good idea at the time: a warm, blue, postcard-perfect summer day. An open afternoon. A recently renewed Y membership. A heated indoor pool. Almost-clean towels. (Nobody’s perfect.)
