National Dog Day: A Special Day for Dogs

3 years ago

It's a dog's day in the afternoon. Warm, moist, just as summer should be. As I walk, my dog trots by my side. He pants as his paws pad through the grass. His nose ready to find what only he can find. My son laughs with so much glee, he seems to elevate.

That's what having a dog can do. Our dog entered our family as a stray. He's now got a home. My son with Down syndrome thinks he's the funniest thing ever. Like ever. The dog does nothing more than tilt his head or wag his tail. That is all it takes to make my son laugh.DSCN0775

Dogs got that thing. My son knows it. I know it. The one's that don't need to find out. It's too cool of a thing to miss.

Happy dog day to all the canine's out there. May you all have a home and a person to call your own.
