Things to DOO
It’s August! But I bet you know that.  Here’s are some things you may not know about this crazy, hot, fun time of year.  

  • August 19th 1960 – With Korabl-Sputnik 2, the Soviet Union launched the satellite with the dogs Belka and Strelka, 40 mice, two rats and a variety of plants. All of the creatures survived.
  • 1858 – The Billboard Hot 100 is published for the first time. The first number-one song of the Hot 100 was “Poor Little Fool” by Ricky Nelson.
  • Each year, Family Fun Month is celebrated throughout the month of August.  It is the opportune time to enjoy family with extra fun and activities.
  • National Dog Day is August 19th!  This day  encourages dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure, and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and “abuse-free life”.

Interesting!  Celebrate National Dog Day and Family Fun Month by adding a few of these events to your August:
