I Love this Holiday.
We celebrate every day with big hugs for Lola. (our English Cream Golden Retriever)
Even when she’s just come in from the rain ...
This is my Song Selection for this very special Holiday ...
Rain Dogs by Tom Waits :
Our dogs deserve all the love and affection we can give them, which is why there’s a special day dedicated just to hugging them. It’s April 10: National Hug Your Dog Day.
Hugging your dog releases a hormone in both pup and person called “oxytocin,” informally referred to as “the cuddle hormone.” Not only does a good tight squeeze strengthen your bond, it shows your pet that you care. Today is a day to celebrate your dog for all they do.
So grab your dog and give them an extra cuddle today!
What’s a rain dog ?
A Rain Dog is a dog caught in the rain, with its whole trail washed away by the water so he can't get back home. A stranded dog, who wants nothing better than to get home.
People who live outdoors, people who sleep in doorways, loners knit together by some corporeal way of sharing pain and discomfort.
A term coined by Tom Waits on his album named Rain Dogs
Inside a broken clock
Splashing the wine with all the rain dogs
Taxi, we’d rather walk
Huddle a doorway with the rain dogs
For I am a rain dog too
