Today is National Dog Day, and that’s going to mean different things to different people. If I know anything at all, it’s that everyone feels very passionate about their breed of dog! It doesn’t matter what the breed is, people are just sold on their specific type of dog!
I remember the days of having our purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgis. I was such a dog snob in those days! I liked other dogs to be sure, but I loved my Corgis like nobody’s business and I don’t think anyone could have ever convinced me that a better dog existed!
To this day, Corgis are without a doubt my very favorite breed of purebred dogs, but because I train all breeds, I have really come to love and appreciate the various different breeds of dogs for the wonderful attributes that they bring to the world. And I have to say, I absolutely love the passion I see in my clients for their dogs. It warms my heart at every lesson that I teach.
Today….I want to celebrate the All American Mutt!! My sweet little Rugby James doesn’t have a fancy pedigree behind him, and to be honest, his gene pool is dubious at best! But he’s my little guy, and as cute as a button, and I love him to the moon and back. For a little nutter of a dog, he has a huge heart, and never gives up trying to learn, and that makes up for a whole lot of other shortcomings in my book!
Happy National Dog Day to the pooch at your home that makes your own heart skip a beat! Extra snacks all around!
