“The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.” — M.K. Clinton If you believe the old saying, “A dog is a man’s best friend,” then chances are you already celebrate National Dog Day. For those not in the know, however, every year on August 26, dog owners across the United States and throughout the world honor their four-legged fur babies on National Dog Day by showing them some extra love with a special treat or a longer walk around the block, visiting or donating food, blankets, or money to local shelters, or encouraging others to adopt or foster.
A Special Day with a Special Purpose
In 2004, Colleen Paige, a pet and family lifestyle expert and animal advocate, created National Dog Day as a means to both celebrate dogs and increase the number of adoptions for shelter dogs who were in desperate need of a loving forever home. Paige chose August 26 for the day because on that date, when she was just 10 years old, her family adopted a Sheltie dog that would become their beloved companion. National Dog Day has since grown into a special day that is celebrated by many dog owners and dog lovers throughout the world. In fact, in 2013, the day was even written into New York legislation. To further Paige’s mission, those who are deeply involved with the holiday not only work with rescue organizations to help bring attention to the number of dogs in shelters who are in need of adoption, but also encourage prospective dog owners to adopt instead of shop. To date, approximately one million shelter dogs have been adopted. Moreover, Paige also uses the holiday she created to enlighten people to the many ways that dogs positively contribute to society. To do this, she shines a light on police dogs, therapy dogs, dogs who work in many different capacities within the medical community, guide dogs, and more.

Making the Most Out of National Dog Day

Remember, the celebrating doesn’t have to stop just because National Dog Day has come and gone. Make it a point to honor your dog daily through longer walks, lots more affection, special, healthy treats, a new fluffy bed, or any other way you can imagine. If you’re without a canine companion, then visit a local shelter and adopt your new best friend! Or if you know someone who could use a little more love in their life, celebrate National Dog Day by directing them to their nearest shelter. It’s true that dogs do lots of amazing things. This National Dog Day, let’s show them just how grateful we are for all that they do for us unconditionally.
