National Dog Day is celebrated each year on August 26th. This is a day to dote on our four-legged, best friends. It is a day to celebrate dogs of all breeds. It is a day to recognize the number of homeless dogs that are waiting for a family to give them a forever home. This is a day to honor our family dogs, dogs with jobs, and dogs in shelters, for their unconditional love and devotion.
National Dog Day was founded in 2004 by Colleen Paige, Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, to bring attention to the countless homeless animals and encourage pet adoption.

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate National Dog Day, just take the time to enjoy it. These furry family members give everything of themselves to their humans. Their time with us is too short. Savor the moments you have with them and make lasting memories. Take the time to let them know how much they mean to you and how much you love them.
I'm looking forward to spending the day with my two fur-babies, Gus and Charley, spoiling them rotten. I hope you enjoy your day too!
