"WOOF! You know what day today is, right, Sammy?"

"Meows. Hiss! No, but I know you're going to tell me, right?"

"BARKS! YES! You need to be kept current- up-to-date on the latest and greatest, especially an impawtant day as this!"

"Purrs! Just tell me so I can get back to napping in the sun near the window so I can peek at the birds too!"

"GRRR! WOOF!! It's National I Love Lucy Day!" 

"Purr- oh. Ok. So? I mean, what do you want me to do about it?" 

"Well, we have to celebrate! I Love Lucy starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley, made its debut on October 15, 1951. It created a new television experience by being the first filmed and scripted program performed before a live audience. The new concept, the I Love Lucy show, was popular, winning five Emmy Awards and numerous awards. Three cameras were used to provide views from several angles, creating quite a popular show.

Sammy, did you know the I Love Lucy show was the most-watching show in its airtime slot for most of the seasons it aired? These days, at any given moment, someplace, somewhere in this pawsome universe, is "I Love Lucy" playing on someone's television! It is credited with being the longest broadcasted show in history!" 

"So, meows, I guess we have to celebrate this day somehow, right? Hiss!" 

"Of course! Lest we be slackers in acknowledging this great show. National Calendar Day provided a few suggestions-

  • Experience the flavor of I Love Lucy by cooking recipes from The I Love Lucy Cookbook.
  • Test your knowledge of the sitcom by reading the "I Love Lucy Book of Trivia."
  • Lucille Ball knew how to turn a phrase. Read more in The Quotable I Love Lucy.
  • Watch a documentary or your favorite episodes.
  • Dress up as the iconic comedian and bring some humor to those around you.
Barks! When you celebrate National I Love Lucy Day, pawlease share your favorite Lucy antics using #ILoveLucy when posting on social media. 

Paws, you know how we'll celebrate the day? Right Sammy?"

"HISS! I am afraid to ask! I know you and Dad- especially Dad - he loves the show and gets a little weird with it. ... I shall do my usual thing until everything else gets out of control... hide in the basement or somewhere-! So tell me, Noah, how?"

"Woof, I saw Dad grab a set of DVDs from his complete collection of "I Love Lucy" on DVD! I'm thinking of a marathon of shows on the day. Instead of fighting it, we can watch them again and annoy for more treats!"

Paws, how will you celebrate "National I Love Lucy Day?" Please share in the comments below!

WOOF! WOOF! Barks! My friend "Lab Lady" from Lab Rescue brought by a pawsome friend for you to meet! Salty! He is looking for his "Forever Home!" with humans to love who will love him too. Woofs! Salty is a very handsome 9-year-old Chocolate Labrador Retriever who is eligible for a $50 savings off his adoption fee in October, thanks to a kind donor.

Salty is looking for a "Forever Home" in a rural or suburban single-family home with limited stops. He will need a fenced yard. 

Woofly, Salty is enjoying his foster home. He is a sweetheart and loves humans. 

Salty is working on learning his leash skills. Barks, he still gets excited when going for walks but is calming down as he learns the neighborhood.  

Barkingly, he isn't a fan of the full staircase! He does some steps with his foster's encouragement but limited is recommended as they make him nervous! 

Barks, at home, he likes to follow his fosters around the house or lounges on his dog bed by the back door.

WOOF! Barkingly, he slept a night out of his crate and did pawsomely well! Barks! 

Paws, Salty is healthy and active. He loves going outside in the backyard and playing. He loves retrieving and thinks getting treats is great! 

Salty loves going for car rides and going to new places.  He loves playtime too. 

Barkingly, Salty would like a family with a fenced yard who will give him lots of love, playtime, and walks! 

Meet Salty in his videos: Salty and Sit!
