Washington

September 9. And on this day in 1791, the capitol of the United States was named after President George Washington.  Wonder why they didn’t just call it George?

Anyway, I have talked before about the fact that George was a big dog lover – and he was instrumental in breeding American Foxhounds.
So when I went looking to see if I could find out any more about George and dogs, I found this very cool video.  It came out a year ago – and maybe you have seen it before, but I don’t remember seeing it.  It’s a true story about how George was in the midst of a battle during the Revolutionary War – and his enemy’s dog ended up in his camp.  Check it out…
I never knew that story.  Love the last line – and it’s so true.  We DO bring out the good in humans.   If we haven’t eaten their bed sheets….
Have a good one!  Peace and paws up!
