It’s National Dog Day


Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Did you know today is National Dog Day? It’s celebrated every year on August 26th. It was founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert & Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige, who is also the founder of National Puppy Day, National Mutt Day & National Cat Day to bring attention to the plight of animals & encourage adoption.

National Dog Day honors family dogs as well as dogs that work selflessly to save lives, keep us safe & bring comfort. The purpose of the National Dog Day Foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs each year. Please paws for a moment to think about all the dogs in shelters or on the streets in need of a forever home.

When considering a new animal companion we always say, “adopt, don’t shop”. If you have your heart set on a purebred companion, consider visiting a website like or to find one at a shelter. Learn how organizations like these are changing the way we adopt. As you search for your new family member, get prepared. Keep in mind the needs of a small versus large dog. Also consider volunteering at your local shelter or fostering. Shelters can always use donations of food, litter, blankets or toys.

I believe Q & I will be celebrating with gratitude for a pawtacular forever home filled with pawsitive love  & a wagnificent walk that will include many treats followed by several naps. We would pawsitively love to hear how you are celebrating National Dog Day 🐾💜🐾

  1. Lulu: “Yay for National Dog Day! For some reason my Dada got all excited about the middle dog in that group picture.”
    Charlee: “You’ve seen pictures of Dennis around, haven’t you, Lulu? And Tucker? That middle dog is a vizsla like they were and Dada always likes to see pictures of vizslas.”
    Lulu: “Oh. But he would like a picture of a dog that looked like me just as much, right?”
    Charlee: “Of course! We all would.”
    Chaplin: “Yeah yeah sure sure. Dennis is still my favorite though. Don’t tell Lulu I said that.”
    Lulu: “But I’m sitting right here!”
