MOUNTAIN AREA — We noticed that National Dog Day was looming on the calendar, and decided to act on an impulse. Designated as Aug. 26, National Dog Day is one that needs no explanation for many, as canines are our constant companions, true sometimes most especially here in the foothills. We put the word out on SNO social media suggesting that people may want to post pics of their precious pooches. And you did!
We received pictures of canines sleeping, chewing, playing, and posing, and images of dogs in bed, dogs at work and dogs clearly on vacation. Tall, small, long and short hair, pure breeds and mutts, all the photos were delivered in fine fashion like a pair of slippers — and they are guaranteed to have one thing in common: these dogs are loved by their humans. You know, the ones who sent in the pictures.
