Hi all! It’s Dakota and today is Social Media Day! It is a day to celebrate (or curse) all of your social media channels and the friendships you have made (or lost, MOL!) as a result of having them.

Social Media Day was launched back in 2010 by Mashable.

I would like to celebrate this day by thanking  everyone who takes the time to visit my blog and my other social channels which are all listed below. THANK YOU!! YOU ALL MAKE MY DAY  EXTRA SPECIAL!!!

Barks and licks and love,

Dakota

#ThankAVeterinarian on Veterinarian Appreciation Day™

Hi my furiends!!! Along with today being Father’s Day, is also Veterinarian Appreciation Day!!!   I have always loved my Vet and Mom and Dad are super impressed at the way I am the PERFECT GENTLEMAN when I go there!

Cody and Dakota at Vet

Mom thinks the reason I am so good at the Vet comes from the fact that my breeder was a Veterinarian (well, she STILL is!), and Mom thinks I got used to being poked and prodded from puppy hood. Plus, she thinks I got used to the smells that are associated with being at the Vet.

Now I love our Vet because he is an exceptionally kind, caring, compassionate and honest person. Whenever I see him, he speaks to me and touches me in a way that shows nothing but love. I KNOW he loves me and has my best interest at heart, so I am pretty relaxed when I go there. In fact, my Vet says that I “take things in stride” when I go there! Many times since I am groomed at the Vet too, I get a shot on the same day and Mom and Dad aren’t even there when I get it because they know I am fine there and that I completely trust my Vet.

Mom, Dad, Cody and I are grateful to have “Dr.Smiley” as our Vet. There are MANY, MANY times that he has gone above and beyond, returning Mom’s frantic calls,  even when he was on vacation.

Veterinarians are dedicated, caring people and today is the perfect day to show them some love!

It’s Father’s Day!!!

Thank you Dad for loving me each and every day,

thank you for not yelling at me when I bark the day away.

Thank you Dad for waking up at the butt crack of dawn,

you feed my kitty brother and I extremely early,

despite trying to muffle a yawn.

Thank you Dad for picking up my poop 

no matter what the weather!

When it comes to great Sheltie Dads,

NO ONE DOES IT BETTER!!!

Barks and licks and love,

Dakota

We also would like to wish all Kitty Dads, Doggy Dads, Uncles, Brothers, Grandfathers, anyone who has taken on the role of “Dad” (even WOMEN who have to take on the role of “Dad” !) a Happy Happy Father’s Day!!!

Take time to REMEMBER: Memorial Day
