Dearest pet owners — it’s National Dog Day! Sure, we celebrate our beloved furry friends every day — but today is the day to really show them how much joy they bring to your lives! Together let’s celebrate the four-legged heroes in our lives who bring us comfort, keep us safe, and save lives.
All a dog wants to do is love you and be loved by you. These amazing, courageous and sensitive beings deserve the utmost compassion and respect, especially from you, their pet parents. Take the day to pamper them a little, indulge them even! Give them some possibly much needed relaxation and comfort — it is Friday after all!
If you want to show them a little extra love, try baking them a delicious and special treat, or if baking isn’t so much your style, splurge a little on something really tasty they’re sure to love. You can also treat them to a spa afternoon, whether that’s at home or at an actual doggie spa. Give them a massage; work it into a good brushing session with them (maybe following a nice warm bath). Let them know you think they’re beautiful inside and out — and make them feel that way!
While National Dog Day is about celebrating the lives of our dogs at home, it’s also to honor those who haven’t found theirs yet. Even more, it is to help bring attention to the plight of those animals, and to encourage adoption, understanding that pure breds and mutts alike are still looking for their forever families. If you have a moment where you can maybe help a local shelter near you, take that moment! And be sure to encourage those around you to always consider adoption first if they’re looking to bring a new beautiful soul into their lives.
National Dog Day was founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige, also the founder of National Puppy Day, National Mutt Day and National Cat Day and many more philanthropic days.
