National Dog Day: August 26th

 

It's National Dog Day today! Are you a dog parent to one or more dogs? Then it's your day to go out and celebrate with your dog(s) and show appreciation for their unconditional love and loyalty. It's a great day to do something really special with your dog(s)...  or for dogs, in general, if you're not a dog parent, but a lover of dogs.

 

 

 

 

20 Things You Can Do To Celebrate National Dog Day

Carol Williams hi Carol... millions of dogs and cats in shelters and so many euthanized because they can't get adopted. It's really heart-breaking.

Great ideas, Nina Hollander !  If my husband wasn't allergic, I am sure we would have several pets. I grew up with cats, but I think a dog is more in my husband's personality.

Roy Kelley you know me by now, Roy. I'll use any excuse to beat the drum for pet adoption. Every single one adopted is one less in a shelter.
