Celebrating National Mutt Day

Today is National Mutt Day! 

National Mutt Day was created to celebrate mixed breed dogs and bring attention to these dogs that most often end up in shelters. Mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, live longer and are just as loving as pure bred dogs.

My Lilah Rose is just such a mutt that has captured our hearts.  We rescued her from a shelter last fall and she is my joy and constant companion.



Lilah Rose is part chihuahua, dachshund, and terrier mix.  She is 13 months old and weighs about 15 lbs.

I miss little Winston but I know it was the right decision.  I am so glad he has his own family and home now.

Join me in celebrating the mutt in your life by showering the one you love with extra hugs, kisses, and treats. ♥

  1. Hi Gina!

    I love that you celebrate the National holidays, otherwise, I would never know what they are! Lilah is so adorable...that face, so cute!! I have had my share of mutts, but like you well know, they don't all work out. One time we found a big old black dog, not sure what he was...he was a mutt. We couldn't keep him, but a friend of mine said she would take him and love him. They kept him for over 10 years and he was such a good companion to them. He would go outside every night and wait by the driveway for the father to come home from work. One night he wasn't there, and they knew that something bad must have happened. He had passed away, very peacefully, lying on his bed, with one of his favorite toys between his paws. He was loved!

    My dog is not a mutt, but he is loved, spoiled and pampered...I'm such a pushover!

    Give an extra hug to Lilah!!

    Hugs and Love,
    Barb

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
