Since 2004, dog lovers have celebrated National Dog Day on August 26th, a recognition of all canines, no matter what their lineage. The founder, Colleen Paige, is a pet and family lifestyle expert and animal advocate who hoped to bring attention to the many ways dogs enrich our lives. Her main goal was to shed light on the number of dogs available for adoption from rescues and shelters. If you’re lucky enough to share your life with a furry canine companion, there are lots of ways you can celebrate the holiday. But if you haven’t yet connected with a special dog, National Dog Day is the perfect day to add one to your family.
Share your amazing dog with the world on the social media platform of your choice. Write a few lines saying why your pet is so important to you. Tell the story of how you found your canine friend. Let everyone know the rewards of bringing a dog into your life. If you don’t have a pet for one reason or another, join in by posting a short story and photo of a dog that’s made an impact on your life.
