Today Mackey and I are joining in on the Friday nature walk. We aren't going far, just around the yard. We're been experiencing a severe drought so we have a shortage of flowers and the trees have taken a big hit, too. But we had some rain last week and again on Monday so a few flowers are showing off. Mackey says she's ready to get started.

Last week was National Mutt Day and we celebrated as we're sure all of you did, too. I looked it up and discovered that National Purebred Dog Day was May 1st. Oh oh, we missed it but we think our purebred family members deserve attention, so here's our rather late post.
I've lived with purebred dogs and I've lived with mutts. All I can say is that I love dogs.

Today is a special day.Mom has lived with dogs for her entire long life. She thinks dogs make better friends than people do. She has had all kinds of dogs, big ones and little ones, some with long straight hair, some with long curly hair and some with short smooth hair. She's had black dogs, white dogs, brown dogs and red dogs. She's had one color dogs and multi colored dogs and some very nice spotted dogs.
She has had a lot of purebred, pedigreed dogs and she's had a lot of MUTTS. She just loves dogs, no matter what flavor.
Here are some of the MUTTS that own important places in Mom's heart.
First was Hermione. She was part Shepherd and part Mystery.Hermione had four puppies. Their dad was a Cocker Spaniel.
They were Claude.Louie.
Pennyand Zelda. Zelda lived to be 17 years old. Then Mom moved to the beach and needed a beach dog. So she adopted Libby.Libby's mama was a Terrier and her daddy was a Boxer.Just before Mom and Dad got married, they adopted Pylon.Pylon was a Labrador mix.After Libby died, Py needed a friend so they adopted Porsche. She was four months old and a silly little Dachshund mix. What they didn't know was that she had caught parvo at the shelter and only lived for a week after they adopted her.Lucy was the next MUTT in their lives. Dad rescued her from a bad living situation. Lucy's mama was a Chihuahua and her daddy was a Pomeranian.
Then they all moved to Missouri and soon Dad came home with a gentle giant, big Monty.Monty's mama was a ChowChow and his daddy was a Doberman.Soon Miss Morgan joined the pack.Morgan's mama was a Shih Tzu and her daddy was a Lab.Next came Winston. His mama was a Golden Retriever and his daddy was a German Shepherd. He soon went to live with Mom's uncle, whose dog had recently died.
Then came Tsar.His mama was a Siberian Husky and his daddy was a Chow/Lab mix.
After Tsar died Mom was very sad but one day a hot tired Sebastian showed up at the door. He was very welcomed.Finally Dad surprised Mom was us, me and Sydney.Our mama was a Beagle and our daddy was a Dachshund.
MUTTS can do anything that purebred dogs can do. We're especially good at giving love and laughter to our peeps.
So happy National MUTT Day to all our doggy friends of all sizes, shapes, colors and breeds or mix of breeds.We love you all.
Your MUTT pal, Mackey
