National Dog Day!

Did you know today is National Dog Day?

Yup, every August 26th is National Dog Day– mark it on your calendars, fellow dog lovers!

The point of the holiday is to remind people about how many lovable furballs are out there, waiting to be adopted.  Our family really believes in rescuing dogs from the local animal shelter. Nugget #1 was adopted as a puppy from the local humane society, and Nugget #2 was a $20 Craigslist adoption story. I have grown up with rescued puppies and dogs my whole life, and I believe in rescuing puppies (and cats, if you're a cat person) whenever you can.

We don't have babies yet, so please allow me to gush over my adopted nuggets:

The nuggets' favorite chair (above) has been at my mom's house for two months now. She had slipcovers made for  it as my birthday present, and she's bringing it back to me today! I can't wait to see how the slipcovers turned out. I'll definitely take pictures and show you guys next week.

In honor of National Dog Day, I rounded up some of our dogs' favorite things:

Why the Benadryl, you ask? Well, Nugget #2 (the blonde) had a bad allergic reaction to a bee sting last year. We took her to the vet, who told us that we can give her human Benadryl if we see her swelling up again. Now we carry it with us wherever we take the puppies. She's about 50 lbs and she gets half of one Benadryl pill when she's having an allergy episode.

Lastly, I share with you my favorite dog-related YouTube video. This little cutie melts my heart and cracks me up at the same time.


Are you a dog lover, too? More of a cat person? I'd love to know!

Have a great weekend!
