National Dog Day

So apparently today is National Dog Day.  Don’t know if just New Zealand but given saw posting on Facebook from Australia – perhaps it is the Southern Hemisphere.

No matter where you are though let’s give a shout out to all the dogs.

Here’s our boys – doing what they do best…… one in particular – the goof-ball…….

Happy Dog’s Day everyone!

Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth.  Together with their dogs Nico and Ziggy they enjoy getting out and about and exploring the region.  The boys especially love to run on the beach and explore the bush.

    Lets not forget the fabulous dog owners like you and Stephen. Honestly, there are some days I wouldn’t mind swapping with Ziggy and Nico. Is that weird?

    Not at all Pam – I would often rather be them lol Dog sitters, Aunties and Uncles are all very important in dogs lifes. I just wish all dogs came from loving homes.

    I reckon Nico & Ziggy would have to be two of the luckiest dogs on the planet. How many other dogs get to experience all the fabulous wonders of the glorious West coast of NZ and the fantastic love and care of their wonderful owners.Hope you have had an enjoyable Dogs Day Nico & Ziggy.
    I know that you bring as much joy and love to your ‘Mum and Dad’ as the give to you.
    Hugs and snuggles from Nana and Grandad💞

      joy, tears. laughter and heartache – wish they could live forever but they don’t so have to love them as much and hard as possible while they are with us. Currently snuggled up in our beds – oh so cosy. Snuggles to Nana and Grandad

    Surprised to find it’s National Dog Day here in the US, also. I was not aware of this! It’s a great idea. I’ll have to go find some ears to scratch. 🙂
