Favorite Video Friday – For you Dog Dads

My dad

Many people will be celebrating Father’s Day this weekend. I won’t be one of them, but I will be thinking of my dad. He and my Sheltie, Alicia, were pretty close back in the day. She watched over him after he recovered from heart surgery, often sleeping next to him when he took his daily naps, and she accompanied him on walks when he was getting better. He was quite fond of her. I love that she was his companion when he needed one most.

There are a lot of dog dads out there who don’t often get credit for being the awesome dog owners they are. And, they should.

When I think of great dog dads, I not only think of my dad, but also of the  men I have met at my dog park who really showed me the special relationship that exists between a man and his dog, people like Tom and his dog, Compton, and Corky and his dog Roscoe, and Jerry and Brutus, all huge dog lovers and great dog dads.

If you have that special man in your life who cares just as much for his dog as he does his kids, then give him a hug. Dads like him are worth celebrating.

Now, in honor of you dog dads everywhere, here is this week’s Favorite Friday video.

Happy Friday everyone!

And, Happy Father’s Day Dog Dads!

Happy Father’s Day! Yogi and His Ducklings

Not all fathers are the made the same. Some are tall. Some are short. Some like baseball. Some like football. Some don’t like sports at all. But, most just want to be there for you when you need them most.

In short, what makes a father a father isn’t always biology, it’s what they say and do.

That’s why this story caught my attention on this Father’s Day. You see, Yogi is not a typical father either. His wee little ones come with webbed feet. But, he is a father nonetheless.

This picture first appeared on Animal Planet’s Wall of Fame, but it was the follow up story on that I found most interesting. You can read more about Yogi and his ducklings here.

Happy Father’s Day to all those wonderful fathers out there!
