Monday Mischief: Do We Look Irish?

We got our spring hair/fur cuts and Sonya, our groomer extraordinaire, gave us cute little shamrock bandanas. Do we look Irish? March 17th is the Feast of Saint Patrick. He was the patron saint of Ireland around the year 461 and supposedly March 17 is when he died.

Though it is an Irish thing, we celebrate it big here in the US. Actually, according to, it is celebrated bigger in North America than in Ireland. Americans have actually had parades since the 1600s to celebrate.

We have a lot of Irish friends: Irish Wolfhounds, Irish Terriers, Wheaten Terriers, Kerry Blue Terriers, Irish Setters, Irish Water Spaniels, and who could forget the cutest little Glen of Imaal Terrier.

Well, maybe we don’t look Irish, but everyone can be Irish for one day. Now, where is that pot of gold they talk about at the end of the rainbow?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤
