Getting up later these days and the weather has been cooperating. Still hot, but no unbearably so. Some plants have succumbed to the heat but they were mostly annuals and getting to the end of their life. Sad to see them go but that's why Spring is so wonderful, to see them again.
NATIONAL DOG DAY
National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.
Why did the poor dog chase his own tail?
What do you get if you cross a sheepdog with a rose?
"Because no one else will do it for them!"
Why didn't the dog speak to his foot?
Because it's not polite to talk back to your paw!
What is the dogs favorite city?
Who is the dogs favorite comedian?
What did the cowboy say when the bear ate Lassie?
What happened when the dog went to the flea circus?
He stole the show!
How can you tell if you have a slow dog?
It chases parked cars!
