A big Ernie tail wag for dads.
It is their special day this month (June 18 Mary says) and I salute them for all they do.
They step in to feed the family four paws when others are too busy.
They take us on walks after dark when stinky skunks lurk in the bushes.
They pick up after us and they sometimes even hide our “mistakes” from mom. Sometimes they “accidentally” drop popcorn on the floor when they are watching movies or sneak a little food under the dinner table.
Just so you know in case you are invited for dinner, I like bacon.
They drive us to the doctor because nobody else wants to watch us get our shots or when we are really sick in the middle of the night.
And if we get lost (usually because they moved the house when we were sniffing around the neighborhood) they stay out all night calling our name until they find us.
Hooray for dads!
Happy two-legged Father’s Day.
