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!
