National Dog Day - August 26th

Today is
National Dog Day!

So celebrate the beloved best friend in your life!  More importantly remember that every year there are countless dogs who need to be rescued.  If you don't have one but have often thought about welcoming a dog into your life, then perhaps today is the day to visit your local shelter and see if there's one that's right for you.

After all, if it weren't for the many dedicated shelters across our country, our family may never have found Rilley, and we'd like to think that we're all better off for it.

Visit www.nationaldogday.com for more information.

Tweet about it with the hastag #NationalDogDay.

Four years since Rilley's life changed forever

"Wow, four years ago you say?"
We just wanted to post a small note to acknowledge that it was four years ago on this date that Rilley had his first Grand Mal seizure...at least his first that one of us had witnessed (poor Sara, it really frightened her).  It was this day that thrust him into the world of cancer and specifically brain tumours.

This may have been a dark day in Rilley's life but it did lead us to meeting many amazing people along the way and look where we are today...he is still a happy and healthy member of our family.
