Bob Gilbert's Katy Blog: Almost Wordless Wednesday - National Dog Day August 26, 2016

Almost Wordless Wednesday - National Dog Day August 26, 2016

Almost Wordless Wednesday - National Dog Day August 26, 2016


Friday August 26, 2016 is National Dog Day and I wanted to reach out to everyone a little early. I think this is a great time to go to a local shelter and make some poor homeless pup a very happy dog and adopt him or her! Way too many dogs are left to die on the street or in shelters or be horribly abused. It hurts my heart as these poor dogs cannot control their own destiny but you do! An adopted dog will be extremely loyal and loving to you for the rest of their life.


If you want to adopt a dog in the Katy or surrounding areas and do not know what to do and or where to go contact me at 281-904-6772 or and I will hook you up.





The above pictures are of our small dog who is a rescue dog. She is fiercely loyal and loving pup..  

Below is some information on this Day I found and edited from their web site:


National Dog Day celebrates all types of dogs including  mixed breed and purebred. The mission/ goal is to help attract public attention and to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Numerous Dogs put their lives on the line every day in so many different venues.

If you adopt a dog please let me know.. I guess this really was not a Wordless Post!! ::)))

Dogs are sooooo worth celebrating! I hope the shelter is very active on National Dog Day!

I celebrate my dog and cats too every day:)  They deserve it:) But it is nice that dogs have their own special day for celebration and hopefully, extra treats:)

Hi Bob... boy oh boy, are you ever singing my song. Adoption of shelter pets is a cause near and dear to my heart.

 My old partner Eddie saved a couple of pups around my new area! I hope you had a great day and are on your way home as we are having guests!

Bob, you walk the talk with your adoption of Duchess, and she is a great example of the love and loyalty that shelter dogs provide to their new owners!

Posted by Bruce Walter (Keller Williams Realty Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana) almost 4 years ago

That is the way to do it. I am glad that one more dog has a safe and happy home.

There is so much love to be acquired at a shelter. . .I don't dare go there because I have no will-power, and my two felines would divorce me!

Thanks for reminding us that National Dog Day is August 26th. Dogs are just so lovable. This is a great post, Bob.

I hope a whole bunch of dogs and cats found new forever homes today. I didn't know it was National Dog Day. I'm glad Lucky didn't know this, because he would be expecting something extra, and today that wouldn't have happened. (I was a bit busy). 

Love the new profile picture.

Good morning Bob.  Thanks for spreading the word about national dog day.  And, hopefully many pooches will find new homes on this day.

I hope your blog will encourage some pet adoptions.

This is good information to share.

Thank you everyone and the dogs thanks you. Right now the Fort Bend County Dog Shelter is full and they broadcast on Facebook they need 50 dogs to be adopted by Saturday! I hope the 50 dogs get adopted as I hate to think of what might happen. 

Posted by Robert Bob Gilbert, Your Katy TX ( West of Houston) Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties) almost 4 years ago

Hi Robert Bob Gilbert , You're right there are too many dogs, as well as cats that are abused. I hope many of those dogs are joined with some loving families.

Posted by Larry Johnston, Broker,Friends & Neighbors Real Estate, Elkhart,IN (Broker, Friends & Neighbors Real Estate and Elkhart County Subdivisions, LLC) almost 4 years ago

Bob, I hope the Fort Bend County Shelter met its goal of having 50 loving pets adopted into forever families!!!!  Thanks for blogging about this great cause!
