Every dog has its day and it’s August 26th~ National Dog Day!
But if you’re a dog owner, everyday is paws for celebration. :)
National Dog Day was founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige. It’s celebrated August 26th every year to encourage dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure, and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and “abuse-free life”.
The National Dog Day Foundation supports all breeds and varieties of dogs and discourages purchasing from unethical backyard breeders and puppy mills; instead, supporting reputable breeders or adopting from rescue homes.
The goal of the National Dog Day Foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs each year.
We got Chloe and Gracie from the same breeder 10 years ago. We joke about Chloe being our “rescue” dog, since she’s so high maintenance chances are another family would have traded her in for a less neurotic dog a long time ago.
If you have a neurotic dog, I recommend trying ThunderShirt. . . and wine helps too :)
Celebrate National Dog Day by taking your dog for a ride. . .
Or with a treat. . .
