It’s Autumn, or is it?

Today, (September 22, 2017), at 4:02 pm EST, autumn officially arrived in the Northern Hemisphere

OR IS IT?

Could someone please tell our temperatures in Michigan that it is now autumn? Our temps are supposed to be in the 80s (F) until the middle of next week. My Mom is NOT happy! And…”if Mama isn’t happy, then NOBODY is happy!!”

 

Barks and licks and love,

Dakota

Happy Labor Day to those celebrating!

Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. Wikipedia

For everyone else, Happy Monday!

Friday Funny: “Let Me Take A Sheltie”

Hi! Is anyone out there? My DEEPEST apologies that we have not posted in AGES!!! All is basically ok, but this past week Dakota was ill with “the runs.” He is FINE now thank goodness!

I am a member of a group on Facebook (Sheltie Owners) and was recently “friended” by a Sheltie Mom of a handsome Sheltie-boy named “Nico.” While perusing her photos, I ran across this:

Rather than the current “selfie” craze I would MUCH RATHER see a “Sheltie Craze” take place!! (I would credit the cartoon but I don’t know where it originated), all I know is, I LOVE IT!!

 

 

Lazy Day

Today is my kind of day! It is “Lazy Day!”

FROM DAYS OF THE YEAR:

“Here’s a special day you can celebrate without getting up from the sofa. Lazy Day is an ideal excuse to take a break and enjoy some precious “me” time, without feeling guilty about it.”

“Now’s your chance to stop tearing around doing chores and organising events. Sit down and relax, or go back to bed for a nap. You could even mark the occasion by pampering yourself with a massage treatment or visit to a spa – if getting there doesn’t seem too much like hard work, that is.”

 

“The founders of Lazy Day aren’t known, possibly because they were too busy chilling out to keep a record of their efforts! However, their idea has caught on, with many people enjoying the chance to get away from everyday stress. So lie back on the couch, give your TV remote control some exercise, and enjoy a well-earned rest”

Mom says that for a Sheltie I am one of the LAZIEST dogs that she knows! I have no idea what she is talking about! Just because I don’t love taking walks it doesn’t mean I am lazy! I work security around my den 24/7 and in my opinion that is FAR from being lazy!

Barks and licks and love
