This Friday, 3rd October, is World Smile Day. The theme is, “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!”


That sounds like a lovely idea to me! It would be wonderful if every day could be like that.

It’s something that is easy to get involved in as most of us animals enjoy making people smile. There will be a smile blog hop on Friday, you can find the details on Sugar’s blog.

I thought about what I could do to make all of you smile. I decided that many of my blogging friends have lovely smiles, so I would share a few pictures of them. I’m hoping you’ll smile with them! Enjoy their smiles in the gallery of photos and then I will introduce them to you and tell you where to find them.

Dakota of Dakota’s Den

Dakota, Sheltie, smiling Dakota is a Sheltie, or Shetland Sheepdog. He finds great books to review. He also gives his opinion on useful items and sometimes gives them away to his readers. He is fearless when it comes to tasting new treats! He has a knack for sniffing out interesting news. And he still finds time to have fun and make us laugh!

I’ve seen Misaki grow from a cute and mischievous pup into a beautiful adult Alaskan Malamute. She entertains us with her adventures and experiences. She still indulges in the occasional spot of mischief! She was feeling a little unwell yesterday, so stop by to cheer her up!

Emma of My GBGV Life

Emma, Bailie and Katie at the lake, dogs Emma, on the right, and Bailie are French scent hounds (Grand Bassett Griffon Vendéen). Katie is a Kuvasz. They are probably the busiest dogs I know! Sometimes they are cooking treats that make me drool on my keyboard! But you don’t have to worry about them putting on weight – they take lots of exercise and they are often out and about on their adventures.

  1. A great collection of smile inducing blogs Clowie, thanks for sharing!

  2. I like this blogs! I agree it was interesting to see how Misaki grew up and now we can see how Aspen grows a little bit with every post! I wish I would be a sheltie like Dakota, to manage the smile day, it’s not easy for a non-smiling breed to take a good photo :o)

    • Yes, some breeds have a natural smile! Other breeds just can’t look as though they’re smiling. I tried looking for a smiling cat and could only find the Cheshire Cat – I always find that more sinister than happy!
      You have other ways of looking cute and making people smile!

  3. Great selection and we will join you in a smile or two. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. momwithoutpaws smiles at strangers especially if they have a frown. She even talks to strangers. I guess she is not strange ..

  5. Dear friend, you always make me smile just by you being you. Spotlighting so many of your friends and their blogs is a great act of kindness, not only for them to be recognized but also for us so we can find out about them.
