In Honor of National Dog Day – My Rescue Story

My Rescue Story In Honor of National Dog Day! xoxox Baylie

My name is Baylie and I’m a Great Pyrenees and Border Collie mix. My mom rescued me from an awful situation when I was 5-6 weeks old. I was found by a nice man who scooped me up when my canine mom dropped me from her mouth while running.   What made it super scary was we were running along the side of a busy highway and there was a bad dog chasing us.  My canine mom tried her best to hold on to me really tight, but I was just too heavy.  But that’s okay, she did the best she could.  A nice man driving along in his truck saw her drop me, stopped his truck and scooped me up really fast so the mean dog couldn’t get me. He tried to help my canine mom too, but she ran. The nice man couldn’t keep me so he took me to where my human mom works to see if anyone would be willing to take me in.

It’s National Dog Day- August 26!

It’s here, it’s here!  Yes, it’s National Dog Day.  If you’re wondering about its origin, well, it has been around since 2004.  National Dog Day was created by animal advocate Colleen Paige and has been designated to bring attention to all dogs whether in need or not. Their motto is “Saving 10,000 Dogs – One Day at a Time”. President George W. Bush, a dog owner himself, sent a letter to the foundation in support of National Dog Day.

Paige wanted to give dogs a day to “show deep appreciation for our long connection to each other – for their endearing patience, unquestioning loyalty, for their work, their capacity for love and their ability to impact our lives everyday in the most miraculous ways. National Dog Day wishes to encourage dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure – and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and ”abuse-free life”.
