” Thanks to today’s Peanuts cartoon I didn’t miss this annual event. I’ll hug any dog I see, since I don’t live with one. But I do have this wonderful article with ideas for every dog owner.

Now I must tell you about Hogan. Hogan lives on Catalina Island, CA. Population 3,696. But Hogan has many pet owner friends in the neighborhood. So the owners (no other dogs today) are invited to a luncheon to celebrate Hogan. No not his birthday, just Hogan is star for the day. I haven’t been to one of his parties but my spirit is there. Here’s Hogan … painting by yours truly. So to celebrate National Dog Week, I send hugs to my friend Hogan.” Jackie 

PS. This is Hogan’s notecard, used as a handwritten invitation.  (CLICK HERE…Checkout the Note cards )

“Mans Best Friend” Ideas and Information f


National Dog Week was founded in 1928 by Captain Will Judy, a
former publisher of Dog World Magazine and a dog judge. He
created National Dog Week to educate all dog owners in their
responsibilities to their pets and to their communities. The origin
of “mans best friend” is alleged to have come from a closing
argument given by Sen. George Graham Vest. Vest was representing
a man whose dog was shot and killed by a neighbor.

In his closing statement, Vest gave what has become the
famous “Tribute to the American Dog.”

The speech was so
powerful that it won the case. Here is an excerpt from this
famous speech that truly shows how much a
dog means to his owner,

“The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can
have in this selfish world, the one that never
deserts him, the one that never proves
ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.”
Definitely take the time out this week to give
your dog the treatment that they deserve.
