Wee Dafty Dog Day – Here at Last!
Hurrah! Today is Wee Dafty Dog Day!
I bet you never thought the day would arrive, but at last, it’s finally here.
Perhaps you’re in the tiny, tiny, utterly small minority of people in the entire world who are wondering what in the world of heck is Wee Dafty Dog Day?
Well, let me tell you…
A Brief History of Wee Dafty Dog Day
Grandma was a proud Scot who kept her gorgeous Perthshire accent rolling despite moving down to England as a young mother.
As a child, whenever she’d arrive at our house, the first thing she’d say – every single time – would be, “And where’s that wee dafty dog the day?”
That would be Tipsy, our little Jack Russell. She used to wag herself in circles whenever Grandma arrived, happily bouncing off any piece of furniture within a one-meter stumble-zone.
She was named Tipsy by my little sister because of her apparent drunken gamblings when she got excited. Her rear end used to curl from one side to the other – out of control thanks to a tail-wagging speed that should have seen her hovering.
Not the Only Wee Dafty Dog
I now know that every dog is either/sometimes/often/always (delete as appropriate) a wee dafty dog.
That’s why we need a Wee Dafty Dog Day to celebrate the daftness we all love so much.
Just pop a photo in the comments below of your favourite wee dafty, and you’re in with a shout of winning a multipack of your dog’s favourite treats.
The competition ends Midnight Easter Monday, so get that photo in now and…
Let the daftery abound!
