Apr. 11, 2013 at 10:26am National Pet Day, 2013

Today is National Pet Day. (to find out more, click here)When I was a kid, I had a collie—he would do ANYTHING for me, but about the only thing he’d do for anyone else was… to go get ME! So if I was over at a neighbor’s house, and it was time to go home, Mom wouldn’t bother with the phone- I’d just beg to stay longer. Instead, she would tell him to go get me. He would go to the neighbor’s door, and he wouldn’t leave until I came with him.
