Tuesday is MUTT'S Day!!

July 31st - It's Mutt's Day! Mutts deserve their day in the spotlight, as much as a pure breed. If you own a mutt, or you are a mutt (reading this), then you know this day is for you.
This is a picture of my favorite mutt - Smedley - part (get this) Rottweiller, part Bassett Hound!! He's the BEST!

By definition a mutt, sometimes called a "Halfbreed", is a dog that is of mixed breed. They come from two to several breeds. Purebred owners, and sometimes the public in general, view them as lesser in many ways. Mutt owners know better. They value the diversity and uniqueness of their mutts. Sure, a mutt doesn't carry the expensive price tag that a purebred with papers has on its head. To the mutt owner, however, the mutt is invaluable. In addition, mutts don't walk around needing to prove anything. You won't see them strutting around any dog shows trying to prove they are the best.
To all mutts and and mutt owners, we hope you thoroughly enjoy Mutt's Day. Spend the day relaxing and doing all the things you and your dog like to do. Do so with both of your chins held high. For your mutt is worth a million bucks!

Ramblings from the Mind of Monaco

Welcome to my corner of the World Wide Web!
Hi! My name is Kim Monaco and my blog will mostly focus on my creative endeavors and I would love to meet others who enjoy being creative as well-- so say hello whenever you like!
I hope that this blog ends up being more than me just talking to myself!

I will take the liberty of interjecting my personal life from time to time.... For instance - I recently became the proud grandmother of a beautiful baby boy - Carter. He is so precious and I am lucky enough to live just a mile away - so I can see him often.

I create jewelry (for your ears, neck, wrists, books, keys and walls!) and have committed myself to working on this full-time. I LOVE making it and have a shop on the internet on this FABULOUS site called Etsy. My Etsy address is http://monaco.etsy.com/ - take a look!
