National Dog Day

by Meghann on August 26, 2011

Happy National Dog Day!


I’m dedicating this day to a few of my favorite dogs in my life…

Maddie (the love of my life)


Scooby (the original love of my life and main man of my parents’ lives)


Oliver (the love of my sister’s life, but he has a soft stop in my life too)


Sadie (the other love of my sister’s life and Oliver’s life)


The best group of dogs any girl could ask for. πŸ™‚




I’m a dog person. Clearly. πŸ˜‰

Everyday is dog day around here. Maddie rules the house.


Comfy, girl? Wouldn’t want to get in the way of your nap time.


I still love her.

Even when she breaks free from her crate. Or sheds everywhere. Or has an accident. Or tries to eat my lunch.


Maddie isn’t a fan of vegetables, but when I’m in the kitchen she assumes it’s something good and parks her butt at my feet. A piece of spinach or tomato falls and she’ll immediately go after it, give it a sniff, and then turns back to me as if there’s something better up there. she has high hopes a piece of juicy steak will fall one day.


No steak today, Maddie. Just a colorful salad of spinach, tomatoes, roasted red pepper, raisins, pretzels pieces, tabouli, northern beans, and goat cheese. You know – all things you hate (minus the beans and cheese), but Mama loves. πŸ˜‰


I snagged a piece of Melissa’s cookies & cream fudge for dessert.


No chocolate for dogs, though. Sorry Maddie!

I didn’t know it was national dog day!! I’m so glad that I took my pup Mo for a 6 mile run this morning – he loves running so very much!

Dogs really are a girls best friend πŸ˜€

I’ll have to show my puppy Addie some extra love today πŸ™‚ not that I don’t love her enough already. She makes my heart melt.

My dog won’t even look at a fruit or vegetable either. I tell her all the time there’s no way she can be related to me when she’s such a picky eater πŸ˜‰

I love random holidays like that! They are a great excuse to celebrate the little (or big) things in life that don’t make it on to most calendar but still hold a special place in our hearts πŸ˜€

Oh Maddie! So cute! She reminds me of my dog Wren — is Maddie a Jack Russell? My dog likes to sit in my lap while I blog too. Too funny! But weirdly Wren LOVES veggies, especially zucchini and squash. Crazy little pups.

My dogs are the worst beggers too!! If they even hear the bread drawer open, they will sprint from wherever they are laying to the kitchen. It’s so pathetic but obviously adorable. πŸ˜‰

Our family dog is a jack Russell too and she loves veggies – especially salad with vinagrette dressing!

18 Amanda August 26, 2011 at 7:44 pm

What awesome dogs! It looks like you all found your puppy-soulmates. I’ll have to give Reddick an extra hug or two today for National Dog Day.

Does it count if I eat a veggie hot dog? I don’t have an actual dog to love on… wah! All the dogs in your life are adorable!

Lovin’ the Dog Day photos! As the mama of two large pups (a 55-pound lab and a 110-pound American Bulldog-St. Bernard rescue mutt), I totally understand where you’re coming from πŸ™‚ Although, mine really, really love veggies πŸ˜‰
