If your dogs are anything like mine, they follow your every move. Mine follow me around the house into every nook and cranny. Recently, I’ve had a few mishaps that I can look back and laugh at, but felt bad at the time.
It started with Buddy. I was getting ready to go somewhere with my usual routine…in and out of the bathroom and closet. After figuring out my attire, I shut the closet door as always. A short time later I heard a strange but familiar sound. I had shut Buddy in the closet and he was letting me know by thumping the door stopper with his paw. Smart boy…it worked!! You would have thought he was gone for a week after seeing the excitement of his brothers. If you are a dog owner, you know what I mean.
Not long after, I shut Coby in the same closet, but this time I noticed he was gone. The closet was one of the first places I checked. Lol
Yesterday, I had another incident with poor Buddy! I had taken the boys outside to potty, then brought them back inside through the sunroom. I closed the sliding door because it was hot and humid outside. I went back into the office to finish my work when Coby started ringing the bell to go outside again. I thought to myself, “Crazy dog, we just came in!” With that in mind I went about my business, but Coby wouldn’t give up on the bell ringing. After a few minutes, I went into the living room to see Coby sitting at the sliding door with Buddy sitting on the other side. Poor Buddy had been shut in the sunroom and couldn’t tell me. His brother was looking out for him! Again, the three boys were so excited to be reunited!!!
I think there is a lesson to be learned here. I need to pay better attention to the whereabouts of my babies! Always making sure all three are safe and sound in the house! I know worse things could happen, but I hope they don’t!
Love you, my babies!!
National Dog Day started in 2004 as a way to inform the public of the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year. It also acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort.

In honor of National Dog Day, here are some of my favorite ABC pics.
Disclosure: I received a free container of product from Lloyd & Lucy in return for my honest review. Affiliate links are attached.
Luxating Patella is a common condition in Yorkshire Terriers. Luxating Patella is when the knee cap pops out-of-place due to a misalignment of the knee. This can be an inherited condition or happen as a result of an injury. Two of my Yorkies were born with this condition. Patellar luxation is often divided into four grades of seriousness. Artie and Coby currently have low-grade issues. To help prevent the condition from getting worse, all three dogs are taking Glucosamine, which is a joint supplement. They have been taking it for just over a year as prescribed by our veterinarian.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to try Lloyd & Lucy’s Pet Supplies Best Value Glucosamine Hip and Joint Supplement for Dogs. This supplement contains high-quality ingredients such as Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Chondroitin, MSM, Vitamin C and Manganese. The product facts and directions for use are listed below in the chart.
There are a few things I like about Lloyd & Lucy’s supplements. First and most important, this supplement has made my life easier because my three Yorkies love the taste of the liver flavored tablets. They actually think it’s a treat! There is no need to hide the tablets. After they eat, I give each dog a 1/2 tablet, just as directed. The tablets are scored, so they are easy to break in half with your hands. It’s really so simple!!
Second, these supplements are manufactured in the USA. Most recalls for dog treats, supplements, and food occur for products manufactured outside the USA. For this reason, I try to buy dog products that are proudly made in the USA.
Third, Lloyd & Lucy’s product is a great value at 180 chewable tablets per container. Even though I am giving these supplements to three dogs, they will still last 120 days (since my dogs only need 1/2 a tablet).
Lastly, the company is so confident that your dog will love the taste of their supplement that they offer a 100%, no questions asked, taste guarantee. Just let them know within the first 45 days, and they will refund your first bottle – NO QUESTIONS ASKED! Not many companies offer that kind of guarantee. So what do you have to lose…start your dog on Lloyd & Lucy’s Best Value Glucosamine Hip and Joint Supplements today!!!
Some of the breeds on this list surprise me because they are such popular dogs.
