National Dog Day - Celebrating in Style !

Today is National Dog Day and Mom said we have to celebrate in style - we love our Mom! Our day started off super early - even before the sun was up and we headed to MY park. First was a wander around the lake and then while waiting for the sun to come up - we got to see Mr Beaver again!!!

After walking around the lake REALLY slowly because Mom said we needed to get lots on good sniffing in - we headed up into the woods and decided to go to the little lookout. This looks out over MY other smaller park - the one with the board walk in the tree tops.

After that we went back to the lake and found a nice park bench in the shade and just relaxed. Mom had her cup of tea - we had a bowl of cool water and some cookies - she fed the ducks MY bread which today I didn't really care about because as you can see I had my happy face on :)

When we got home we were pretty hot (its been in the high 90's for the past week and will be for the next week too) so Mom went hunting in the freezer and found us a peanut butter frosty paws (they are hard to find the peanut butter ones but they do make them and we like them better than the original flavor) Mom says we could enter a synchronized tongue slurping competition and we must admit we REALLY enjoyed our cool down treats.

So here we were just chillaxin and thinking a nap would be good when Mom said "come on boyos - I have another surprise". And guess what - we went off to MY favorite pet store. Can you believe they didn't even know it was National Dog Day - we let them know with some very rambunctious barking and we each got a free dried duck foot for our endeavors. And look what else Mom bought ME US - raw marrow bones, fish skins, treats - dog oh dog - we want EVERY day to be National Dog Day!
