19 September – 4 October 2009 marks the official dates of the 2009 Oktoberfest celebration. Can you believe it is the 176th Oktoberfest?

Oktoberfest in Munich is the largest festival in the world. 16 days of BEER, music, people from all cultures and fun. It is such a popular festival that countries around the world hold their own Oktoberfest celebrations. Alot of different breweries release an Oktoberfest seasonal just in the fall. I of course encourage everyone to try out the Leinenkugel Brewery’s Oktoberfest!


However, check your local brewery for their fall seasonal. Mom goes nuts for the Shipyard Brewing Company’s Pumpkinhead Ale, and has been seen with a Samuel Adams Octoberfest.

Regardless of how you celebrate Oktoberfest, raise a pint of your favorite brew to King Ludwig I of Bavaria who married Princess Therese and just had to throw a big party to celebrate!

Pepper was telling me about September 11, 2001. She watched with Mom as a plane flew into the Pentagon and the Twin Towers fell.  So many dogs helped out at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

It was the largest deployment of search dogs in U.S. history and possibly the single greatest example of inter-species cooperation in the history of human disasters.  (http://dogsinthenews.com/stories/060911a.php)

Thank you dogs and your handlers that did all that sad work. Thank you to our men, women and dogs that are deployed in unsafe areas of the world….come home soon.
