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.
