A #MemorialDay Weekend #FlashbackFriday Visit Down Memory Lane
It's here! While Memorial Day Weekend unofficially kicks off the summer season here, it is also important to remember why we celebrate, as my flashback poster above featuring Wolf depicts.
Thank You, Heroes...
Remembering our K9 Heroes...
Honor Your Veteran, Share A Memory
Share a Remembrance | National Memorial Day Concert | PBS: Honor the fallen: Share your memories of a friend or loved one on the National Memorial Day Concert's Wall of Remembrance.
“We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.”- ~James A. Garfield
May 30, 1868 Arlington National Cemetery
Thank you to all our veterans - male, female, and K9 - who gave the ultimate sacrifice in order for us to enjoy the freedoms we can enjoy.
This holiday weekend is also a time to get together with family and friends, gather for picnics and barbeques, open up swimming pools, and get yards into summer shape. This second flashback photo dates back over three years ago and is of my now furangel Gibson supervising the opening and readying of our pool! Ahh...I'm ready to go in, how about you?!
Please be sure to take extra care to keep beloved pets safe while enjoying some early summer fun. This third flashback photo is from several years ago of our Harley as a cover dog model for American Pet Magazine, along with some of our FiveSibes holiday safety tips:
Light a candle for a fallen veteran,
human and K9,
say "thank you" to a living veteran,
and have a safe and happy
holiday weekend with your family!
