Super Smiley on National Mutt Day!

July 31 is my favorite holiday of all! I’m Super Smiley, blog dog, and I’m a mutt!

Mutts have been among us, protecting people, making them laugh, and giving love for a long, long time. Old Yeller from the classic film “Old Yeller” was a mutt! The original Benji from the movie “Benji” was a mutt!

Here are my top 5 reasons to adopt a mutt!

  1. We are the best! All our genes mixed from all those breeds give us the coolest qualities ever!
  2. We are fantastic working dogs and contribute to the welfare and care of people all over the world. We are military dogs, service dogs, therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs and movie stars!
  3. We are unique! How many dogs just like us are there in the world? Only one! We’re one of a kind! ‘Cause we’re mutts!
  4. We soooo appreciate being adopted, and we will never forget it, and will love you forever!
  5. We’re hardy and healthy and super smart, because we’re a mix of all those great dogs with all those super qualities.

Smiley, you are my mutt! Good boy! It’s Megan here now on National Mutt Day!

National Mutt Day was created by Celebrity Pet Expert, Colleen Paige, to celebrate mixed breed dogs and to encourage adoption. Millions of mixed breed dogs wait in shelters across the United States right now. If you rescue one, odds are they’ll rescue you right back.

Here are some ways you can celebrate National Mutt Day.

  1. Adopt a mutt!
  2. Strut your mutt! When someone asks you what kind of dog you have, instead of saying his designer mix label, proudly say, “He’s a shelter dog mutt!”
  3. Volunteer at your local shelter and encourage your friends to adopt.
  4. Donate to your local shelter. Ask them if they need blankets, bowls, food or any items that you might have lying around at home.
  5. Watch and share Super Smiley’s award winning film short, “Super Smiley Flash Mob – A Dogumentary,” that shouts it out for mutts with the chant: “The coolest thing, you can do… is get a thrown away dog… mutts rock! It’s true!”

Yep, that sums it up: Mutts rock! It’s true!

Now go celebrate your mutt.

Until Next Time,
Woof and Super Smiles from
