Guess What We're Celebrating Today

Bentley: “Hey Pierre!  Guess what we are celebrating today.
Pierre: “Is it my happy birthday?  Do we get cake?”
Bentley: “No, it’s not your birthday.  Today is George Washington’s birthday.”
Pierre: “Ummm, is there cherry pie?  I’m good with some cherry pie ala mode.  Woo Hoo!  I love pie.”
Bentley: “There is no pie.  I was just pointing out that while it is not your birthday, it is our first president’s 283rd birthday.”
Pierre: “Holy cow!  Surely, that is in dog years.  He must be even older than Gramma!”
Bentley: “Dude, he’s been dead for over 200 years!  Anyway, that is not what we are celebrating.  The country celebrated his birthday last week on President’s Day.  It is National Walking the Dog Day.  We need to get in at least a mile walk today to celebrate.  I’ll go tell Mom and Dad, so they can get ready.”
Pierre: “Hold on just a second.  It is pouring down rain.  We can’t go for a walk in this mess.  Look, it’s Be Humble Day.  We can celebrate being humble.  Let me just Google it here and read what it says…’having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance.’  Well, that definitely doesn’t sound like us!  Bahaha!”
Bentley: “It’s hard to be humble when you’re a Hound.  Do I need to mention Westminster again?  Oh, look!  Here’s something that suits us perfectly.  It’s International Thinking Day.  If anyone needs us, we’ll be here having deep thoughts.” 

"Cherry Pie...I really wanted Cherry Pie Ala Mode."

"Mom looks busy, maybe I should go mooch a belly rub."

  2. Hmmm pie lucky dudes. Have a serene and easy Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. I love the idea of thinking day! Bailie and I are all worked up as there was a wabbit at our front window when we came downstairs at 6 this morning. I will close my eyes and think about catching the wabbit and about you naturally ;)

  4. Pierre, I could go for some cherry pie too!

  5. Thinking of Cherry pie and Belly Rubs are GOOD thingys to contemplate.

  6. AWWW, those are great pics. Momma said she just wants to plant a big kiss on both of those noses! I hate it when she does that to me.

  7. I do wonder what deep thoughts my dogs are thinking sometimes. I have a feeling you may be right about belly rubs -- and maybe a game of fetch for my Tucker.

  9. There sure are a lot of days to celebrate today.

  10. Since we have terrible winds today we'll vote for the pie too!

    Your pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  11. nice warm pie sounds like a great way to celebrate to us :)

  12. It's a something for everyone day! It's too bad you couldn't have a walk though, or cherry pie. Deep thinking is always good sometimes too, when there's no pie or walks anyway.

  13. BOL! So many days in one! I am happy to say that we happened to have honored National Walking the Dog Day (albeit unintentionally), because today was the first day where the snow melted enough for me to actually take a full walk around the neighborhood with my Papa! YAY! It was a little wet, but the sun was out and it wasn't so cold today, so we made it to the outskirts of our favorite park (which is unfortunately still buried). Soon enough... SPRING!! Thank warm thoughts, guys! *wags* - Gilligan from

  14. You sure do look like you are having deep thoughts. Great photos! Did you get pie?
