During my travels I’ve made many friends. Although few reside in a different country, I believe they qualify as international friends because of our differences.
International Friendship Day was founded to encourage us to get to know others who have different ideas, lifestyles and even languages.
As a kitten I went to work with my mom every day at her dog grooming salon. Like all youngsters, I saw the dog customers only as perspective playmates.
We didn't speak the same language and I was different and smarter, but it didn't matter. I only wanted a friend to play with.

This is Dahlia, a Golden Retriever who traveled with Mom’s friend Julie April. Dahlia was going to grow up and become a Service Dog for a veteran. I think she intentionally failed her final exam, not because she didn’t like veterans, in fact she liked everyone. I know because I took the time to get to know her. She blew off the exams because she didn’t want to leave Julie.

What ever you do, widen your horizons. Make International Friendship Day the best ever!
