It is party time. Check out a dozen favorite Molly and Lilly photos to celebrate the greatest of all national holidays—National Dog Day. Give your dog extra pets, an extra treat, or a longer wake. Bandanas and bows all around.
Molly and Lilly will have a pampered day. Some expensive dog food topped with a treat. Multiple backyard play walks. Lots of toys. Some petting. A chin scratch or two. All with treats sprinkled in.
I guess it is not much different than normal, except daddy is taking more pictures for the inter-web thing...

Have a great National Dog Day - Don't forget to comment about your dogs.

Absolutely adorable girls. You are a good Dad and a very good cook. I appreciate you sharing your expertise.
I am years old and now i do not for the first time in my life i am without a FuzzyButt. Love seeing Lilly and Mollie. Absolutely Beautiful babies and i know a joy to be around and watch as they make for some beautiful memories.
My last one was Westie who i had put down with bone cancer, the love of my life.
Now living in Arizona and at my age i will not attempt to have one with the coyotes here and that they would most likely outlive me and who is to take care of them the way i would want?
I want to thank you for all the photos of the two babies you have and for making them a part of your family, they are, extensions of the family and i regard them the same a having a young child that never totally grows up. A big committment and a big responsibility and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. People put them outside and they are not included in the total daily routines they so deserve and tie them to a tree to what? protect the tree or yard? No put them inside where they belong.
I have never in my life trusted anyone that does not love animals, I have always thought there was someting upstairs not totally connected when that happens and i have always been right with that kind of thinking. They were never welcome at my home and the animals knew it and stayed away from them. Smarter than we know, right?
I love your site and thank you for all the hard work you put into it for us.
Best of everything for you.

Hey I loved this post. I have had lots of doggies over the years and I always think the one I have now is the greatest ever. You too, I bet. Oh, and the recipes are great too.;-)
There is no measuring the joy pets bring into our lives. You, Molly and Lilly are so lucky to have each other. Thanks for sharing those pix. Our little guy is Nimbus, a just turned ten Westie. We too spoil him ever day, but birthdays and this day are special times that need more spoiling. After all, pets give to us everyday!
Hello dog lovers! I too have an English Cream Golden like Molly and Lilly. His name is Luke and our son has Luke's sister/litter mate, Sophie. This breed is so mild mannered the whole family just loves them both. I would attach a pic or two if I could. We're taking our boy to the dog park today to let him romp with friends. Happy National Dog Day! And BTW...LOVE Cooking For Two!
So glad there are people in the world like you who genuinely appreciate how blessed they are to have beautiful doggie friends/loved ones! May God bless all of you.....take care.....enjoy!
Dr Dan, I too am a dog lover and I can see clearly that Lilly and Molly are truly loved and pampered! I have always enjoyed seeing the pictures of them mixed in with your wonderful recipes. Happy Doggie Day Molly and Lilly!

Welcome to the blog.
Molly and Lilly say thanks. They had a wonderful holiday and hope you did too.
Thanks for the note.
Oh my Dog they are so wonderful. Just puts a smile on my face. Is there really such a thing as Dog Day? Well there should be.
Surprisingly, it is "a thing", every August 26th. This year I didn't remember until our kennel had a Facebook post. So I had to wipe up a post by modifying last years'. I have now added it to my blog calendar so I will at least have a few days.
Lilly and Molly are so sweet--I love seeing the pictures of the two of them interacting and enjoying each other's company. One of our two mutts is more interested in a relationship than the other, which is kind of sad. But they're both loved and loving, and they're getting lots of extra petting and attention today. Oh, and treats, too, of course!
Always extra treats. They do keep each other entertained.
