If you’re a dog owner, every day is a paws for celebration . . .
and August 26th is National Dog Day.
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.
Chloe and Gracie came to us from the same breeder 10 years ago. We refer to Chloe as 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 :)

Freekibble.com was launched in 2008, as the vision of then 11 year-old, Mimi Ausland. Mimi wanted to feed the hungry dogs and cats at her local shelter. “There are 10’s of thousands of dogs and cats in animal shelters across the country, all needing to be fed a good meal.” With this goal in mind, Freekibble was created.
Today, the Freekibble Network reaches over 500,000 passionate pet-lovers. This loyal community has helped feed over 14 million meals to homeless dogs and cats in shelters, rescues and food-banks across the country.
