...that 26 August in Oz is National Dog Day.

26 Aug, incidentally, is also the anniversary of Flem's death last year.
How quickly time flies.
Today, however, we had the pleasure of the company of our two furry grandkids - Molly and Zhaan.
These days, they spend about 2 days a week with us and we enjoy taking them for walks.
Being National Doggie Day, I took some pics of them today, when out in the front yard enjoying the weak winter sun.
Here's gentle-natured Zhaan, getting older, and now with some grey scattered through her black fur.
I don't know the full story of this one, but it sure sounds like he skipped assembly to watch the heavy machinery work (he's crazy about them). Skipping classes might just run in the family.
And here, Grandson R and his big sister A were all dressed up for their school's book week.
