Mostly True Memoirs
It’s National Dog Rescue Day – A Great Day to Celebrate Your Dog!
It’s National Dog Rescue Day.
We’ve always rescued our dogs.
The first one was Schatzi.
We got her as a puppy.
She is the reason we prefer to rescue older dogs.
Puppies are destructive.
She grew up to be a very good girl, though.
Our next dog was Dave.
He was a senior rescue.
We named him after David Brenner.
We didn’t think that one through.
Things could get awkward around guys with the same name.
Dave spent his golden years with us, being a very happy doofus.
Wrigley was our special dog.
We had her for 15 years.
She raised the boys.
Although all dogs are the Best Dog Ever, Wrigley really was the Best Dog Ever.
And now we have Blue.
I had just started her on obedience training when I wrecked my knee.
She has taken full advantage of my injury.
She has been very naughty.
Just this week she chewed up some socks, got into the trash, and ate some meatballs that were meant for our dinner.
I’m going to have to improvise some knee-injury-worthy obedience training.
I simply can’t sacrifice any more meatballs.
Happy National Dog Rescue Day!
