Today, December 2nd is National Mutt Day. And while we might be a little slow on the update, we’d be remiss to mention it. After all, we’ve got a lot of mutts that we adore in our lives, #1 being our main-man Bear. Mixed breeds are the breed for me!
Created in 2005, this awesome holiday is celebrated twice a year! July 31st & Dec 2nd are the dates to honor your mixed breed mutt.
National Mutt Day was created to be celebrated on two dates per year to raise awareness of the plight of mixed breed dogs in shelters around the nation and to educate the public about the sea of mixed breed dogs that desperately await new homes.
Swoon. Talk about a cause near and dear to my heart! They’ve got a wonderfully extensive list of ways you can participate too, I’d love to know which one you’d do?? You can also find them on facebook here.
Dog parks are a huge thing here in Portland, quite like dogs’ themselves. Portland’s often voted the most dog-friendly city in the U.S.
We were invited on a doggy play date to the dog park by a few friends and haven’t looked back since. The dog park is awesome!! Bear does so much better meeting strange dogs off leash, and he just runs and runs while we’re there. Him coming home exhausted is an added bonus.
Do you & your dogs go to the dog park?
This is one of my all-time favorite photos of Bear & Scooter together. Bear’s eyes are absolutely stunning in this photo, and it captures the essence of who they are. Do you see Scooter tiny toofers peeking out?
I ran into Petco yesterday to grab a bag of dog treats and some bones that Scooter will chew (currently that’s only Greenies-who’s ingredient list I’m less than a fan of) and ended up getting pretty distracted with some of the other cute things they have there. Like these magnets for instance.
And for some reason, I loved that flat Jabba the Hut Star Wars toy at the bottom right. I think Scooter would love it!
But the best surprise of all was running across these Crunchkins rawhide cards in-store. I’d never seen them until we reviewed the Be Pawsitive box that included one but I’m crushin’ on them hard. They are so stinkin’ cute!
Bear & Scooter are saving their paw-llowance for some Christmas Crunchkins cards for their friends And because I’m officially on a Crunchkins kick myself, I added a few favorites to our amazon store. Like this one. Hello awesome!
And had we known about Crunchkins sooner, we’d have sent this one to sweet Stella when she had surgery last year. Because sitting. Staying. And healing was exactly what her doctor ordered. And that’s not easy for a busy germanshorthair lady!
Have you seen anything fun while shopping lately?
P.S. I’m not being paid to write about or promote any of these products, just some fun things I saw while out and about! But the crunchkin links (to amazon store) are affiliate links.
