Q is for Quirky

I am proud to say most of my life I have had an open mind. I also weathered most change with the attitude that it might take getting used to but would turn out for the better.

Welcome to my daily A-to-Z Challenge post.  Today’s letter is D and the word I chose is Dogs.

My theme is Pop Culture and you may be wondering what exactly do- dogs have to do with Pop-Culture.  I hope my post answers that question.

If you were expecting to see my monthly IWSG post, I apologize my dogs ate that post:(
