No one is surprised that the person who couldn't get organized enough to participate in the Sadie Hawkins dance, didn't realize until too late yesterday that October 1 was National Black Dog Day. (We punished her by rolling in poop yesterday and then giving her the evil eye for cleaning it off of us and not letting us roll it all over her bed).
Better to celebrate late than never!
Black dogs are the last to get adopted. It may be that they don't photograph as well or that they look scarier. Either way, more black dogs are left behind then any other colour. Let's work to end the stigma toward black dogs and get to know a dog before we judge it by its breed or colour.
Happy Belated National Black Dog Day!
