International dog day
Did you know? August 26 is International Dog Day!
On this Day all dogs, mixed breed and pure are celebrated.
Why August 26th
This holiday was created in 2004 by Colleen Paige, a Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate. She created this day so that all dogs can be celebrated and also to draw attention to the number of dogs in shelters and to encourage adoption to those who have yet to find a place to call home. August 26 is significant to Colleen because it is the day her family adopted her Sheltie when she was 10 years old.
National Dog Day is against any kind of breed ban. “Dogs should not have to lose their lives because of the atrocities they have been forced to endure at the hands of man”, says Colleen Paige.
International Dog Day
We know, no one can win hearts like man’s best friend and in honour of this bond between man and canine, Dog Day is celebrated.
Take time to appreciate the love and value that dogs bring to our daily lives, and to do your bit for homeless and abused dogs the world over.
Whether mixed or purebred, embrace the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe, and abuse-free life. They all give us companionship. Additionally, they keep us safe, and they aid those in need, working for the emergency services to supporting people who are blind, deaf, or disabled, dogs do a lot for us humans.They play many other roles in our lives, too! They keep us healthy, both physically and mentally and this is an opportunity to give something back.
As dog lovers, we want to give our furry friends the best, always know where they are, and spoil them with love and affection. What better occasion to do so than this international day of dogs?
