Happy G-Day!

Did you know that today is Grandparents Day? The brainchild of West Virginian natives Marian and Joe McQuade, Grandparents Day was first proclaimed a national holiday in 1978 when President Jimmy Carter signed the bill into law designating the first Sunday after Labor Day as national Grandparents Day.

While some cynics might view Grandparents Day as just another money-maker for the card companies, passionate pups like Rog, Thelma Lou, and I choose to celebrate the occasion with cards and calls to our loved ones. So whether you call your grandparent G-Dawg, Grammar, or Puppaw, make sure you let them how much you love them  ̶  today and everyday.

The sun rises and sets with grandparents
