National Black Dog Day ~ October 1st

Celebrating National #BlackDogDay ~ October 1st

Our boy Bogey is a tri~colored Cavalier with much more black than most, and for whatever reasons was given up by someone when he was just a pup. We adopted him from CavalierRescueUSA a few years back, and he has been a loving member of our family ever since! (Cleo loves her brother Bogey!)

Did you know??? 

"...black animals are the least adoptable pets in shelters because of their color. All too often, black dogs are overlooked because of many stigmas such as; the color black is evil, (the same stigma cats have), black dogs do not show up as well in photographs as multi~colored or light colored dogs, and black dogs look scary or intimidating because their facial expressions cannot be seen as easily, etc. They are easily overlooked when searching for a new dog and the first to be euthanized in overcrowded conditions.

Please think about adopting a black dog and show the world how much light they have inside and out!"
