Here's why we love dogs more than humans
Who let the dogs out!? Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige did in 2004. That's right, August 26, 2004 marked the first ever National Dog Day (yes, before Instagram). Thanks to Ms. Paige, we have this glorious day to collectively celebrate our pups!
Along with bringing awareness to all the precious dogs that need to be rescued, National Dog Day also serves to show appreciation to our pups for keeping us safe and bringing us comfort. Dogs are extremely helpful creatures in the society we live in. From holding insightful law enforcement positions to escorting the blind, our dogs really do deserve a day to be pampered.
