National Mutt Day is Today - Surf for a Friend

Today is National Mutt Day.  No it's not a day to celebrate my dog, Lettie.  It is a day to rescue deserving animals from the doom of a shelter to help them have a better life.

If you are considering getting a dog, please consider a rescue dog.  I did, and saved my dog from having a life in a no-kill shelter.  What I got in return was a lifelong friend who has actually saved my life more than once.  She's also the (unofficial) Ambassador to Snowbirds for the City of Wilton Manors since every person here on vacation seems to want to pet her, but that's a different story. 

The goal of National Mutt Day is to get 10000 shelter dogs a forever home and saved from either euthanasia or a life in a shelter.  It helps keep the number of puppies born in the horrific conditions of a puppy mill down because one dog saved from a shelter is one dog that isn't born in a cage or worse.

I found my Lettie in a shelter by surfing online at but you can get more details about National Mutt Day on their website at . Every dog has it's own personality, you can find one that will meet your own lifestyle there...

Oh!  One really nice benefit of adopting an adult dog... 
No Housebreaking!!!
