Monday Musings ~ August 26, 2019


Happy Monday and Happy National Dog Day. NDD celebrates all dogs, whether mixed breed or purebred. That includes celebrating Knuckleheads of all stripes and which I’m especially celebrating a certain Knucklehead who was presented an award this past weekend for having ‘pawticipated’ in more than 200 hospital visits. I couldn’t be more proud of this silly goofball who demonstrates pure loving attention to all he greets. Even when he faces the wrong way during the awards photo, he steals the show.


There will be more photos and a special post later this week but for now, please join me in saying, “attaboy, Sam.” Way to go, dude.Sam

No resting on our laurels now though. Tomorrow we return to hospital to bring more smiles to patients and staff.

Live, love, bark! 🐾

    1. Well Sam sure does. I wouldn’t go to far as to say I do but happy for the association. 😉

    1. Thanks for the kind words. It’s taken us a ‘bit’ than a year but we’re grateful to be part of a great group.

  1. Attaboy doesn’t even begin to cover it! Great job Mr. Sam, 200+ visits is a huge accomplishment for you and your Dog Mom, too! You’ll never really know the full depth of your contribution but it will live in the hearts of the many whom you’ve touched. Happy Dog Day!!!

        1. You got it! Course I’m sure will Elsa will try to filch it but we’ll do our best. 😁

    1. Sam is the real magic maker, I just have the vehicle that allows him to do his ‘thang.’

  2. Love the graphic and the saying. Very true.

    Way to go, Sam. That’s a wonderful milestone.

    Sorry I’m so late today. We boated from Rio Vista back to our slip and then drove home.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. ♥

        1. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, he is without a doubt the sweetest dog I’ve ever known and I’ve known my fair share of dogs.

  3. Our gratitude to you and your Mom Sam, when one of us does good things it creates a ripple that affects us all. Thank you for your service. LeeAnna

    1. Thank you, but it’s only fair to note I’m just the driver, Sam does all the hard work. And ever so sweetly.

    1. He’s such a Knucklehead. That away-from-the-camera pose exemplifies him. But you couldn’t ask for a sweeter fur angel.

                1. That’s not far off from the truth! And after a nice bath…so delicious smelling in addition to soft as all get out.

                    1. You got it. And he sends 55 hundred tail wags in return for the hugs.

    1. Many thanks and a bow from Sam. Ok, technically it was a tail wag but he is most appreciative.

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
