There is no such thing as labor day for a dog. Service, guide and assistance dogs work every day because they love what they do. Maybe this is where the phrase "labor of love" comes from? I wouldn't be surprised if a dog inspired or invented that. BOL
Obesity in pets is a real problem. Often when a mom brings home a new baby, the pet gets fat according to this New Baby Means Fat Pet story on Petside.com. This city dog (me!) had a few months there (okay, six) where I was on the heavy side (ten extra LBs), but fortunately I responded quickly to a change in diet and exercise.
How did I do it?
When I first read about the dog days of summer, it made me mad. Muggy? Me? I'm a German Shepherd-Husky dog, I'm the opposite of muggy. I stop muggers!
However when I read that a big dog is the brightest of the stars in the summer night sky, then I was Sirius -ly happy.
Do you think if I win Funniest Blog or Blogger, I could get them to rename Sirius, the dog *super* star? BOL
