You probably expect me to spend this post complaining about how mama abandoned me to go hang out with a cat! And I would, but I have more important things to talk about.
Especially dogs that served our country, some even our local communities, and are buried and honored at a very special War Dogs Memorial Cemetery.
Since today is Memorial Day my Aunt Karen, her dog Deuce, and mama and I went out to visit it this morning. (Aunt Karen provided my patriotic attire.) It was pretty amazing.
I felt very honored and almost overwhelmed to be visiting these amazing dogs and paying my respects. Deuce says he felt the same way. These were very special dogs, loved beyond measure, who worked hard at their jobs and who are honored here in this beautiful place not too far from where I live.
We spent a long time walking around, reading stones and thinking about these heroes.
If you are ever near South Lyon Michigan you should stop by. I guarantee you’ll have a better appreciation for all the work these dogs did while they were alive.
And then, if you’re lucky enough to have a Prince or Princess at home, give them an extra dog biscuit today. On me.
Talk to you all later…it’s a holiday and that calls for a nap!
