If there was ever a reason to pamper your pooch, the best excuse you could have is National "Dog Day", celebrated worldwide on August 27.

Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, Old Yeller, -- just a few familiar names that have captured the hearts of Americans for decades.

Thinking about adopting a 4 legged friend forever?  I'm sure our local animal shelters in Lufkin, Nacogdoches, and surrounding communities, could help you out.

Remember, an adoption should be for life.  Personally, I've adopted twice from the "pound".  Great dogs both times, one living for eight years, and the other for eleven.

My fondest memory was forgetting my baseball cap one day.  I had just left the house after spending an hour at the park with "Fido" (he loved retrieving the tennis ball, and seemed to never tucker out).  Was only out the door for about 30 seocnds, and when I went back inside, you would of thought I had been gone for two days!  Now, that's unconditional love for you.
