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??? 

" 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!"
