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.
In case you need any other reasons to cater to your pup today:
National Dog Day
Here's why we love dogs more than humans
First things first, dogs are always ready for food. You never eat alone with a pup by your side.
They can pull off pretty much any and every color.
When pups link up, they achieve the uttermost #squadgoals.
Having a canine means having a consistent and motivating workout buddy.
You'll never ever have to pose for a picture alone.
Children actually get sick less aka miss less school days when there's a dog in the house.
They're the most cordial when around their counterparts.
Dogs are just as obsessed with social media. A new pup breaks the internet everyday!
Like us, they like to experiment with their looks.
