“Every Dog Has It’s Day” And Today My MOM Is THAT DOG!

  This is not just another dog day afternoon in the “D” ( for those that live in other parts of the world, “D” stands for Detroit!!) Make no bones about it, this is one special day, my Mom, Caren , is having a birthday!
Try to restrain your enthusiasm my canine companions.
Some of you may be underwhelmed by this announcement , but in this Sheltie’s  doghouse I’m doing everything to make my alpha mom  happy for the next 24 hours.
 Chew on this morsel my four-legged furry ones:
”When Momma’s Not Happy
No One is Happy”
                                   All seriousness aside, Im extremely fortunate to have such a great  human like my Mom, Caren.
She is vigilant about taking me to Dr.Smiley for regular checkups [perhaps a little too vigilant for this Sheltie’s liking

This is a reasonable facsimile of "Dr.Smiley"

See? The likeness is simply remarkable!!!

Mom feeds me high quality Rachael Ray Nutrish dogfood [ Is that why Im so perky?]
She teaches me tricks and showers me with treats and affection.

Ok we realized Mom and I have NO photos together! This was in March before Mom lost 44 lbs and cut her fur!

Send out a bark to her my doggie dudes and dudettes [impressed by my use of alliteration? Alright Dad helped me a little.]
Let her know her tireless efforts, [shes dog tired many days]  has not gone unnoticed.
Have I kissed up enough yet?
Bol. Bark out LOUD
Love and licks,
Dakota “Apollo”
Apollo is my “dad-appointed”  middle name,
Mom hates when Dad calls me “Apollo”,
 but since I dictated this post through Dad and not Mom, what Dad wants, Dad GETS!
