Today is National Mutt Day! Unlike most dog holidays, today focuses solely on the mixed-breed dogs who often get overlooked.
Several country stars have adopted their very own mutts! Here are a few of our favorites:
Miranda Lambert - Jessi, Waylon, Delta Dawn, Cher, Bellamy, Thelma, Louise & J.D.
Michael Ray - Wrigley
Dierks Bentley - EmmyLou & Patch Adams
Dan Smyers - Chief, Joy & Ghost
Carrie Underwood – Ace & Penny
Brantley Gilbert – Alley & Sylo
Kacey Musgraves – Pearl
This is my girl, Pearl 🐶 We found each other the day after my 21st birthday. [look at the last picture..!] Since then she's been through SO much [2 car accidents, an amputation, a hip rod etc] and is still going strong. She's been through so many chapters with me. So many houses. Relationships. Adventures. Triumphs. I've never had a soul connection like this with any animal before. It makes me sad - she had to go live with my parents in Texas when I started touring. I had to face that the road did not suit her for many reasons. I'm grateful for the love and care she gets every day, and her quality of life is more important than anything, but it still hurts to miss her so much. Getting time with she and my family for my birthday was such a special treat for me. They leave in the morning. And no I'm not crying as I'm typing this..............#yesiam 😩
