Bogart’s 7th birthday was September 12th, but we celebrate it for a week. When you are a special dog like Bogart, there is no other way.
Bogart looks like he is ready to dive into this birthday cupcake, but in fact, it is a squeaky toy. He had a huge birthday treat on his actual birthday.
Happy birthday Bogart!

Yesterday I rode throughout lower Manhattan as an honor ride to pay my respects but also to ride to raise awareness about kindness, compassion, respect and gratitude. Crowds of people still come out to pay their respects and remember those lost on that day, thirteen years ago.
Engine 10 and Ladder 10 were on the street as were firefighters who traveled from across the world to be here on this day.
We shall never forget!

9/11, thirteen years later, and some people still choose to hate others.
As I rode along the East River today, I made a plan to ride in lower Manhattan all day tomorrow.
I’m hoping the signs on the Kindness Bicycle have an impact on those who could choose to show kindness, respect, compassion and love to others…the world could sure use it about right now!

On the grounds of Antler Ridge Wildlife Refuge is a small schoolhouse. A course in learning about nature is taught to area children by Nicole Rose, the founder of Discover Nature.
There is a big tie to kindness at these two facilities. I love returning every chance I can.

I love swinging through northeast Ohio and checking in with family and friends. Three generations of the Blake family couldn’t have looked any better sporting their new One Million Acts of Kindness apparel.

One of my favorite stops across this great country is a wildlife refuge in New Jersey. Kelly Simonetti who founded this safe haven for a cornucopia of recuperating creatures gives these beautiful animals a second chance at life through the loving hands of Dr. Karen and an army of volunteers. This place always puts a huge smile on my face. From Bogart meeting Sara Lee the pig to reading the words of one of my new books “Bogart Makes Breakfast in Bed for Himself” to the children of Discover Nature, I will carry these fond memories and many more for years to come.

Thank you to the Service Learning class at Aurora High School in Ohio for inviting me to their classroom today. Led by teacher, Mike Rubin, these students on day eight of their school year are well on their way to learning about the direct impact their actions have upon the world.
A big thanks to Erin and Rachel for taking the time during their holiday weekend for helping to make my visit a reality…bonus points!!
