National Mutt Day

I  rarely publish more than one post in a day but today is National Mutt Day!  It's a day to celebrate all the doggers who aren't purebloods.  In Harry Potter's world humans who aren't born with magic are "muggles" or "mugbloods" so I'm thinking in our world dogs who aren't pure bloods are pure magic!

It's estimated that today the mutts outnumber the purebreeds.  So if your heart is set on a purebreed by all means get one.  But if you aren't sure what kind of dog you want then consider a mix or hybrid dog.  They can be found in so many shelters and rescues just waiting for a new home and family to love.  They are full of vigor and energy ready to bring a smile to your face with their adorkable silliness and joy.

A popular search today on MSN lists the top hybrid dogs of the season with pictures and great information about each one.

We just love all dogs in all shapes and sizes but we are somewhat partial to the Dorkies!  Do you own a mutt? A hybrid? A purebreed?  We would love to hear and see pictures!
