I feel very stupid, and it's all Mom's fault.  She thought yesterday was George Washington's birthday, but then she realized later that his birthday is really FEBRUARY 22 instead of January 22.  I am really mad at her for making me look dumb in my own blog, but Mom says I don't look so dumb.  She says I just look like I am "ahead of my time."  She is probably lying about this, but there's nothing I can do about the situation now.

Anyway, what you should do is save everything you learned about George Washington and his foxhounds and think about it all again on February 22, which is the true and correct date of his birthday.

And in the meantime, here are some very nice dogs from the shelter that all need homes, so please give them one if you can.

This first dog is named Hank.  He is not the same Hank that lives with Aunt Cheryl and who came to visit us in October.  This Hank is much bigger and looks very different.  The Hank from the shelter is a mix between a mastiff and a shepherd, and he's 4 years old.  He has sad eyes, but he is very friendly.  He likes to get in Mom's lap when she visits him at the shelter.  Sometimes he barks at the other dogs, so we're not sure if he likes other dogs or not.  Hank walks kind of funny in the back end because he probably got hit by a car before he came to the shelter.  But now he's getting better and he walks more like a regular dog.

Kelly is a cute black girl dog who likes to go around with one ear up and one ear down.  She's a lab/shepherd mix, and she's about 4 years old.  She doesn't like dominant dogs, but she gets along fine with calm, more submissive dogs.

This is Demmy, and he's only 6 months old.  This picture was taken when he was 4 months old, so Demmy is bigger now.  But he probably won't weigh more than 50 pounds when he's all grown up.  He's a German shepherd mix, and Mom says he's very playful and has a lot of energy.  He's a little shy when he goes to adoption events, but he's not shy with people he knows.

This last dog is Henry, and he's a collie mix who is one year old.  Of course, this is not our neighbor, Henry.  This is a totally different dog.  Mom has not got to play with Henry yet, so she doesn't know too much about him except that he is very pretty and he is supposed to be very friendly.

So anyway, that's all for today.  Just remember that there are many homeless dogs and cats sitting around in shelters and foster homes, so if you can do anything to help them out, they would appreciate it!
