Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, even if your only children are fur babies, or babies of another kind. Larry is a great dad to all four of our four-legged children. They love him and appreciate him just as much as if we had two-legged children, in fact, at times possibly more, but then we do not have any two-legged children, so who really knows.

Father’s Day was inspired by Mother’s Day, which became official in 1908. Father’s Day was first made into a holiday in 1910, by President Woodrow Wilson, and was first celebrated in the state of Washington. However, it was not made an official “holiday” until 58 years later, in 1972. In the United States, Father’s Day is on June 20th. In other countries–especially in Europe and Latin America–fathers are honored on St. Joseph’s Day, a traditional Catholic holiday that falls on March 19.
Larry is the Daddy Dog in our family, but my daddy was a great daddy too. He has been gone now for 14 years, and there is not a day that goes by when I do not miss him or think about him. I have always been Daddy’s girl and always will be.
This is a very old picture. Sadly, all three of my “loves” here are all now up in Heaven.
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads. Make the day special and know that you are loved and appreciated for all that you do.
