Ever have one of those days, where it seems like the whole world is against you and you desperately just want a friendly face to give you some compassion? Well, if you are a dog owner, then you know what its like to have had a bad day until you get home and a four-legged, furry-tailed companion comes trotting down the hall as you turn your house key to open the door. Finally, your bad day is forgotten and all you have in front of you are licks and a happy pup thats been waiting for you to come home. We picked this Youtube video because we loved the meaning behind it. 'The Mayhew Animal Home is one of the most effective animal welfare organizations in London, reaching thousands of dogs and cats to escape a life of abandonment, neglect and cruelty each year.' We applaud this wonderful organization for helping pets find good homes and helping create awareness of pet adoption and showcasing how loving abandoned pets are and how much love they give in return for simply adopting them.
National Dog Day was started in 2004 to recognize and encourage adoption for shelter pets. If you're looking for a companion of your own look into Petfinder.com to find a shelter near you.
We love this quote and thought it was perfect, being National Dog day in all,
'No Matter how little money or how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich.'
We couldn't agree more! So from our pups to yours "Happy National Dog Day!"
Check out the video (below) we thought was a perfect match for Bark4Green and a holiday like today! In the video appropriately titled, 'Wind in my ears' a dog named Odin and his friends are enjoying a simple car ride, but the smile on their faces and the scenery+the music is just pawsome! Yea for #OnTheGoDogs! Enjoy ;)
Have you seen the adorable Norman The Scooter Dog? We are huge fans of the this French Sheepdog & his pawsome tricks. It just so happens that Norman has successfully reached his attempt to set the record as the fastest scooter riding dog, yesterday, (See the video above!) He's been on The Late Show with David Letterman, GMA, and the Cartoon Network to name a few! Norman's goal is to end dogs being bred through puppy mills.
We are not only big fans of his unbelievable tricks but also this pups ability to create the proper awareness to such a great cause. Norman raises money for a very special group that helps rescue animals from high kill shelters and relocates them to No-Kill shelters.
