Today is a Special Day

Spread the love

TGIF!! Friday is here and that means weekend, time to put our feet up and relax.

Layla is still hobbling around so have kept her on bed rest as much as possible this week and her energy level is going through the roof LOL but am doing my utmost to prevent her from walking. I have taken her to the park once or twice to get fresh air but she starts walking so I bring her home although she loves sleeping there LOL.

Wearing my granny jacket cos it was cold but zzzzzzzzz

I phoned my vet today to discuss with her what is happening, and she was so great and told me to relax as Layla is a senior and it could take time for her paw to heal and that I am doing well with what I am doing. We have put her on Galliprant for a week which is an anti-inflammatory and pain killer which hopefully will help her paw, but it is making her sleep LOL, phew.

Now why is today a special day?

Today is National Dog Day is recognized worldwide on August 26th annually. We celebrate all dogs and encourage adoption.


It is so important to encourage adoption as there are so many dogs in shelters waiting for homes. It hurts me so much to see all the rescues and shelters posting photos of dogs needing homes and breeders still breeding to make money, we need to put a stop to all breeders till shelters and rescues are empty. I understand there are people that want pure bred dogs BUT you can adopt one from a breed rescue organization or from a shelter as there are so many there.


So why we celebrate dogs lets turn today into a day of adoption and celebrate the freedom of those caged dogs who need homes.


On this note we are asking to spread the word, help emptying shelters and giving all beautiful dogs a home and freedom.


Stay safe everyone, have a wonderful weekend

With love and woofs

  1. Poor Layla. I hope she heals up soon. It’s so hard to keep them off their feet. I so remember.

    Have a woof woof day and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

  2. I hope Layla is back to her normal self soon. Poor baby!

    Happy National Dog Day to beautiful Ms. Layla!

    I’m so glad you emphasized that you can adopt a breed-specific dog. Sometimes people don’t realize you can find specific breeds or even “designer” dogs at shelters or in foster care. That was a great tip! We think Henry is a cockapoo and people are amazed he was in foster care for four months. Love that you are bringing attention to the shelter animals and letting everyone know that no matter what kind of dog they want, they can find it at the shelter or in foster care. Excellent job! I’m sharing this with all my dog parents!

    • Terri I so agree with you and we need to speak out for those that do not have voices, thank you for sharing to get the word out, Happy National Dog Day to Henry

  3. Layla is obviously keen as mustard to be out and active. This is good, it mans she feels OK (even if her paw isn’t!!) I hope she heals soon and you two can enjoy some real park time.

    Happy Dog Day.

  4. First Happy Belated Dog Day! Miss Layla, I’m so happy your energy is going up! That is such a wonderful sign! I am sure Momma is so relieved. In no time you’ll be back to your wonderful adventures that I enjoy so much from my “armchair!” You rest now, pretty girl, and sending you both hugs! xo

    • Thanks Dorothy and she seems to be so much better every day phew and we cannot wait to start adventures again, I need them LOL and happy you enjoy them
      from your armchair. Hugs from us x
