NATIONAL DOG DAY


Today is the National Dog Day in USA. Here in Brazil the Dog Day is in October 4th. Created by the National Dog Day Foundation, National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.


I just found in Jan, from "The Pritz Family" , in Dot, from "Strolling Through Georgia (and Sometimes Alabama)" and in Shammickite, from "Rook's Nest", a nice homage to their dogs. I like to join this homage, posting photos of my adorable friend Flora. By the way, as Flora was rescue as a little puppy by my daughter, no one knows exactly when Flora was born... then Sofia chooses September 3th. Flora will be eleven years old soon.

Happy Birthday dear Flora!




My husband and Flora: both loves each other!


Flora loves to take a nap in a chair




After her bath she loves enjoying the sun in a beautiful day

  1. I didn't know it was National Dog Day. I will have to do something special for my dogs tonight.

    This is a nice tribute to Flora :)

  2. No wonder you love Flora, she's just great. We've picked birthdays for some of our dogs, too. We always thought, it's good to have a birth date.

  6. Parabéns à Flora pelo seu dia! Que beleza vê-la assim tão feliz. E é verdade que os cães retribuem em dobro todo o carinho que dispensamos a eles.

  9. What a cute dog Flora is. I just bet she is spoiled too! I really didn't know there was such a thing as National Dog Day until Jan mentioned it. I think it's a nice day and remind us in October and we'll celebrate it again. Gypsy was actually born in October.

  14. a dog day is such a great idea! Romania should also adopt this idea, there are so many poor and abused dogs here :((. but from time to time also good things happen, like with your Flora!

  19. What a lovely happy looking dog! I posted about my three as well. They all got an extra treat for their special day.

  20. PERI, a Flora é vira-lata, mas pelas suas pintas nas pernas e pescoço, imagino que seu bisavô tenha sido um perdigueiro... quem sabe...

    Flora don't has any pedigree. She is a mutt. But as she has some spots on legs and neck, maybe your ancestral was a Pointer... who knows...

  21. Sonia,
    Debbie e Vida mandam felicitações à Flora pelo dia de hoje. Nossas amigas mais fiéis merecem mesmo uma homenagem pelo dia.
    Beijos!

  36. Hi Sonia! Okay, I'll do the Ecological Day. I have never done one of these linky things, so hope I don't mess it all up!

    I have just been looking at your Italy pictures on your other blog. I want to go there!! So beautiful! Your son is quite handsome also!!

  37. Sonia,

    li um comentário seu sobre a blogagem coletiva da menina Flávia. Como a Odele marcou exatamente no dia 15 de Setembro, e como dia 15 é dia de TERTÚLIA VIRTUAL, resolvemos ter como tema neste 15 próximo: SOLIDARIEDADE.
    Assim que quiser pode participar das duas blogagens, fazendo a inscrição dia 14 no TERTÚLIA VIRTUAL.
    Espero que a SOMA de BLOGS demonstre na prática o que é SOLIDARIEDADE!

    bjs

  38. Dogs are such faithfull companions - Flora looks like a sweet dog. I guess it is good to give them recognition, especially when one sees how badly some people treat theiir dogs.
    We just have cats at the moment
