Happy Emancipation Day and Joyous Homecoming Weekend to my Bahamian friends and family. On August 1, 1834 the Slavery Abolition Act ended slavery in the British Empire. What a monumental and magnificent day. Here on the island celebrations went from August 1st through today, the 6th. Cook outs, Fish Fry Events, a Bottom Fishing Tournament, Domino Tournament, Live Music, Sailing Races...big goings on. The island is full to bursting with friends and family from far away coming back home to revel in togetherness.
Remembering my own roots led me to wonder about the many dogs that live here on the island. How did they get here? What stories do they have to tell? What freedoms are they most grateful for? I decided to find the answers to these questions, and sat down with several local canines to get their two scents...er, cents. ;-)

We'll catch up with Henri in tomorrow's post. I wonder if he enjoys the same things as Stephani.
Until next time friends, Roll, Lick, & Love, cuz Life's too short to Growl about everything.
