Happy Leap-Year-Day! Today my blog is dedicated to recent features of dogs in the media, showing how PAWSOME we are.
You remember Uno the beagle, the winner of Westminster this year? He has been visiting fans all over, especially in retirement homes.
Shortly after Westminster, there was an auction with beautiful dog art up for sale. We heard it on NPR, and then looked at the pictures online. Lots of terriers in there! Priceless!
There also have been some really nice stories about dogs coming to America from Iraq. Boris and Mama were adopted by a soldier's family after he died in Iraq. He had been taking care of them over there. Nubs is a dog who came to America after being rescued by a Marine. He ran 65 miles through the desert - in a war zone - to find his person after they had to leave him and go to a different base! Amazing.
And who knew that dogs can help with homework, heal broken hearts, and even give snack food advice?
I guess I need to learn how to do handstands to get a job in Hollywood.
My mom is running her 10K tomorrow morning - please send her good thoughts, because she is still coming back from her pulled muscle, and she hasn't run that far yet! I know she can do it. Then she is going to Ohio for the weekend to help her favorite candidate get out the vote. So if you are Buckeye dog, look out - my mom may come knocking on your door! Anyway, she will be gone until Monday, and I don't know the password to get on to her computer, so I will not be back for a few days. Have a great weekend, everyone!
