It's a National Howliday for Us Dogs!
Woo! While every day is Dog Day here at FiveSibes, who are we to argue with a national holiday just for canines, right? I mean, what dog wouldn't want extra hugs and some special treats, and doesn't that all just go paw-in-paw with it being a holiday?! Today, we are enjoying the "howliday" by just lazing on the shady deck poolside enjoying the beautiful breeze together, which is a real treat since the weather had been so steamy and humid the past month. So this is a real treat!
National Dog Day was created by lifestyle expert and pet advocate to encourage people to Colleen Paige, who also is tops in our books as she also created some other pretty special bark-worthy howlidays, including National Cat Day, National Puppy Day, National Mutt Day, National Horse Protection Day, National Kids & Pets Day and National Specially-Abled Pets Day, and one I just did an article on for 4Knines, National Beach Day!
"National Dog Day celebrates all breeds, pure and mixed and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, either from public shelters, rescues and pure breed rescues. National Dog Day honors family dogs and dogs that work selflessly to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day - for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage." ~Colleen Paige, Founder of NationalDogDay.com
How are you spending National Dog Day?
