The days have become noticeably shorter with the darkness of night creeping in earlier each day. Canadian Geese are practicing for their flight south.

August 26th also happens to be International Dog Day.
My dog, Rickie certainly would never want to miss an opportunity for a walk through the local conservation area. His perma-smile lights up his face so often I almost forget that not all dogs smile. Rickie was one of 268 dogs in a Tampa Bay shelter that was scheduled to be euthanized. A local radio station decided to sponsor the over crowded shelter and had all the dogs on “special” for $20. So my $20 dog joined our family. He was very ill with a severe case of Kennel cough, anemia and ear mites. The initial vet bill cost me 10 times what we paid for him. He instantly became ingrained in our family and still charms everyone he meets. Sometimes it seems as if he knew we saved him from the needle.
