Did you know that August 26th is National Dog Day?
To celebrate our four-legged friends on their special day, we asked some members of the PetEdge staff to share some stories about their dogs and why they appreciate them.
We'd love to hear your stories, too. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post your comments on Facebook or this post. Thanks!
"My dog, Ella, is a 2 ½ year old hound mix. I am grateful that she is so loving and always ready to play. She is always very patient and gentle with children, but she also knows when and where she can play rough and crazy with the older crowd."
-- Miranda Walker, Assistant Product Manager, Merchandising Dept.
"Sophie is my 5 year old pure bred Chihuahua. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old, and she has never left my side. She has always been there to keep me company, and if she ever sees me cry, she runs up onto my lap and literally licks my tears away.
"She also is very protective and loving towards our 8-month-old son and they are quickly becoming fast friends. She is so lovable and sweet, and I am so thankful to have her!"
-- Amy Cooney, Merchandising Coordinator, Softlines
"We adopted our collie, Brisby, from a shelter last year. He had a rough start for his first 11 months of life. But now at 2 years of age, he is transformed. He is very happy and our family can’t imagine life without him!"
-- Judy Sullivan, Marketing Production Coordinator
-- Reginald Macon, PetEdge Marketing Team Member
"I'm grateful for Corinne's calm and quiet personality and Brownie's enthusiam and playful spirit. My favorite thing to do is take them both for a walk in the park or the woods on Saturday morning. I love how gentle they are with my young nephews and with their older "uncle" Anthony (a 10-year-old Bassett Hound)."
-- Brian Burns, Web Marketing Department
--Audrey Vogt, Professional Groomer and PetEdge Product Support Team Member
"Even if I'm only gone for five minutes, Molly, my five year old terrier mix, always greets met as enthusiastically as if I've been gone a week. She's always happy to see me and she's never afraid to show it."
--Jane Yanetti, PetEdge Product Support
“The thing I love most about my dogs (Murphy, a 7-year-old Boston Terrier and Porter, a 2-year-old Bull Mastiff) is that regardless of what kind of day I’ve had, they always know how to make me smile. Whether it’s doing a trick, licking my feet or snuggling with me on the sofa, they are always there for me.”
-- Katie Fawkes, PetEdge Marketing Department
