It depends on how you are using the word "dad".

If you are saying something like, "On Saturday, my dad took me

to the zoo" then you are using "dad"" as a common noun You are

talking about your relationship to the person who took you to the

zoo, not using the person's name.

If you are saying, "On Saturday, Dad took me to the zoo" then

you are using "dad" as a proper noun. You are using the name of the

person who took you to the zoo, in this instance, not talking about

your relationship to that person.
