Today is Independence Day in the United States. How do you think it would be different if dogs did the holiday planning?
If Dogs Celebrated Independence Day
They’d change the name to Co-Dependence Day. What do you think they are? Cats?
Instead of fireworks, they’d only set off stink bombs.
“Fire up that grill. Let’s make some meat. On second thought, why waste time cooking? Just toss me that raw burger.”
The town parade would feature every male dog scent-marking mailboxes and utility poles.
The local band concert would play patriotic favorites like the “Battle Hymn of the Re-pup-lick,” “Dog Bless America,” and “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandie Dinmont Terrier.”
Instead of red, white, and blue bunting, they’d hang half-chewed stuffies from the porch to show what they’re most proud of.
A local politician would read the Declaration of Interdependence over the radio.
Happy Independence Day, Everyone!
