For Thursday, August 26th, 2010
National Dog Day has two goals: to hon
or dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.
This day is intended to honor dogs for all that they do for us. In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety. They lead the blind. Dogs aid in search and rescue, and they seek out bombs and drugs.
The second goal of National Dog Day is to rescue dogs in need. On occasion, dogs need us to save them from homelesness and abuse. The goal of the National Dog Day foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year. Lend a hand to help a dog in need today, or any day.

One thing that I really love but haven't had in ages is
Cook potatoes in their jackets 20 minutes or until barely done, drain, peel and cube. Set aside.
Cook bacon until crisp, remove from pan and set aside. Add onions to bacon drippings and cook until soft and beginning to brown.
Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to form a roux (flour/fat paste for thickening sauces). Let it cook for 1 minute, then add the sweetener, salt and celery seed. Add water gradually, stirring constantly so that no lumps form.
Add vinegar, and bring sauce to a boil for 1-2 minutes. Add pepper. Taste and adjust
Add potatoes and crumbled bacon to pan. Stir and heat until potatoes are heated through. Put potato salad in a bowl and let it marinate until lukewarm.
Sprinkle chives on top to serve
Prayer for the Animals
by Albert Schweitzer
hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put to death.
and for those who deal with them, we ask a
a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals,
and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
