This is for all my fellow dog devotees out there, lovers of those higher beings, the Canis lupus familiaris, a.k.a. pooch. Hound. Furface. Precious. I would like to dedicate this day to my dearly departed son, Earl James Pluto Frois. Here is my favorite picture of Earl, laughing, with me by a Christmas tree. I would also like to post Earl’s favorite, tune, “The Entertainer,” by Scott Joplin. Also to be witnessed is a picture of Sirius, the Dog Star, symbolic to anyone whose dog is the star of their life. This goes to everyone who has ever loved a dog in their life!

Happy National Dog Day!
