Today is National Dog Day. I haven’t had a dog since I was a boy but plenty of people around me in New York City have a dog. Big ones, small ones, multiple ones, seemingly in every other small apartment in the vast metropolis. I have no idea how they pull it off. Heck, I couldn’t stand myself if I needed to go outside for walkies three times a day, let alone arrange to have me or a hired hand do it for me. But they are plentiful. If you have a dog, especially in the city, snap a photo and put it on your social medias with the hashtag #NationalDogDay and show him/her off. And take the pooch for a walk would you?

#ATOBTTR update – Really? My dear Cincinnati Reds got swept by the lowly Pirates? Not a good move if we expect to make the playoffs, this was supposed to be the easy part of your schedule. What can I tell you? Shape up or we get shipped out of the season again. Go Reds!
