Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there!
Guess what day it is? No, not hump day. It’s April Fools’ Day; sometimes called All Fools’ Day and one of the most light-hearted days of the year. Its origin is uncertain. Some see it as a celebration related to the turn of the seasons, while others believe it stems from the adoption of a new calendar. Whatever the origin, have fun with it, but be kind to one another!
It’s National Popcorn Day! Americans eat about 16 billion quarts of popcorn each year (about 51 quarts per person), which makes it one of the most popular snacks in the country. It is also one of the oldest.
To pay homage, here is my popcorn eating video from awhile back. I think I’ve mastered the art of puppy popcorn catching, don’t you? I missed my first attempt, but quickly get in the groove!
Baylie here. When mom rescued me on that fateful day last January, and I settled into my new home, mom and I sat down to have a little tete-a-tete …you know, girl to girl to lock down some house rules. I put my paw down on a multitude of issues, but most notably of which is that, “I will not wear frou-frou doggie clothes; end of conversation. Seems I should have expanded the no frou-frou clothes clause in my contractual agreement to read “no clothes of any description or on any occasion; no how, no way.”
Now, I don’t think the no clothes clause should be a mandatory rule for all doggies; as some of us K-9’s love to play dress-up and look super cute in a frilly frock. However, I’m just not the girly girl type. I fit the mold of the rough and tumble tomgirlpup of a gal. My idea of fun is playing ball or frisbee in the back yard. Frilly dresses and digging in the dirt; my favorite pastime, just don’t mesh.
