August 26th

Happy National Dog Day!!!  I love dogs! I have been around animals from the day I was born. We had so many family dogs growing up....Missy, Penny, Lucky, Buck, Abby, Josey, Sophie  I think that's all of them. The first dog that was mine was Dexter. He was one of Abby's babies, and the best dog I ever had. Then I also had his brother Colby. They both died right after Angel was born. Then there was a short period when I owned a neurotic shih tzu names Leo. After his crazy trip through the neighborhood that didn't end well....I got my Miniature Austrailian Shepherd Grace. She is amazing and I love her so much!

Also today is Womens Equality Day:
In 1971, after much work, and at the urging of U.S. Representative Bella Abzug (D-NY), Congress designated August 26 each year as“Women’s Equality Day.” This day was selected to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution on August 26, 1920. This amendment granted women the right to vote.  This was the culmination of decades of effort by women suffragettes and other groups.  Their efforts dated back to first women’s rights convention in 1848 at Seneca Falls, New York.
