Missed Celebration

04 Dec

Fish bowl picture of BongoI am so bummed!

I missed it!

It’s not my fault.

It’s my person’s fault.

She didn’t remind me.

She should have had a party planned for me and invited all my friends over.

A party with treats, and toys, and games, and maybe even a pool.

That’s it. A pool in my yard so I could go swimming.


Come to think of it, my person could still get me the pool. Even if it is two days late.

You see, Monday was National Mutt Day.

I figured they made that day just for me.

I am the muttest of the muttliest.

The pride of the shelter – wait, what? What did I just say?

The shelter, isn’t that dog jail?

I never want to go back there.

And there’s a bunch of other dogs in there that don’t want to be there. They want a forever home full of loves and treats.

That’s what National Mutt Day is for. To remind people about all the mutts in shelters needing homes.

So even if it’s late, go adopt one anyway.

Or do something to help out your local shelter.

But you don’t have to wait all the way until next December to celebrate National Mutt Day on the right day – because it’s also celebrated on July 31st.

That way twice as many mutts can find forever homes.

Hey person, I think I might need another mutt to splash in my pool with.

Like next summer maybe? You can’t let me forget National Mutt Day twice.

    Break out the bubbly & celebrate Bongo! You certainly found a pretty cool forever home (if only that Scratchy would be nice).

      Lola, I sure did find a good forever home. Too bad Scratchy was already here. He still thinks it’s all his house.

    Oh, yes you are the “muttest of the muttliest”!!!!! 🙂 Great day to celebrate! I’d say twice a year is not enough! Here’s to a new pool with a new friend to play with! 🙂

      Thanks Marina. I should celebrate this day every day – but maybe if I hold out I’ll get that pool sooner.

    Every day is a good day to be a mutt, especially a well loved one like you!

      Thanks Will and Eko. It’s even better being a mutt when I have great friends like you two.

    It was always my dream to find a big house in the middle of nowhere and have all the stray dogs and cats come to live with me..they would be completely free to come and go as they wished……not very practical as it would cost s lot and I don, t have much…so instesd I have three dogs and three cats…so I, m sorta there……….

      Patrecia, I bet your place is a really fun place for a dog to live. Wish I could come and visit.

    How nice of you and your person to post about National Mutt Day. We would not know there was such a day if not for your post sweet Bongo. We wish we could go get lots of mutts and bring them home with us but we have a full house. We hope lots of doggies and kitties found loving homes on that day and lots more will find homes very soon. Hugs and nose kisses

      Chancy and Mumsy, I would love to have lots of mutts here to play with too, but my person say I fill up the house all by myself. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    I missed Mutt Day, too! What’s up? I am also a mutty mutt.. Mom says I might be part monkey because of my long monkey-tail.

    Love and licks,

      Kevin, wouldn’t it be awesome if Everypaw had a good forever home. I’m looking forward to the next National Mutt Day.
