Those "Dog Gone" Days of Summer


Photo by me: Meet my dog, Bronte, who believes cars were made for dogs.

Two things tonight. I will keep this snappy.

1. So this afternoon my husband and I rescued a dog. (Not the one pictured above.) It’s kind of become a hobby for us. Whenever we see a pooch trotting down the street–particularly if it’s a busy road–we’ll pull the car over and snap into action. We have a little corner & capture approach we like to take. I think we’ve rescued 5 dogs in recent months. Thankfully, all of them have been reunited with their owners.

(Good thing, too, because our city has a pet limit.)

So when we located the dog’s owner today, the man told us that the meter reader left the gate open on the way out. The owner unwittingly let his 2 dogs out the back door (as he always does) and both dogs disappeared.

Note to self: always double-check the gate.

2. On a completely different note, Taste of Home wants to say, “Thanks” to the men and women of the Armed Forces who protect our freedom every day. Each time someone views Taste of Home‘s Flag Cake before July 4th, 2011, Taste of Home will donate 10¢ to the USO (up to $100,000)!

It takes 2 seconds, and the flag cake could actually get the wheels turning for July 4th celebrations we will begin planning soon. Win/win.
Final tip of the day: Don’t brush your teeth with a brick.

Speak Your Mind
