I know it’s Wordless Wednesday here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs, but I have to bark out, “Happy National Dog Day to all good dogs everywhere!”
CEO Olivia ❤
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 bestfriends.org or petfinder.com 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 🐾💜🐾

Today is National Dog Day. 3 bum swings & 3 more!
National Dog Day is celebrated every 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. The date of August 26th is significant, as it’s the date that Colleen’s family adopted her first dog “Sheltie” when Colleen was 10 years old.
National Dog Day celebrates all good dogs. It serves to help humans be aware of the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, either from public shelters, or rescues. National Dog Day also honors family dogs as well as dogs that work selflessly such as service dogs for the blind or disabled.
To celebrate National Dog Day I’m going to share a heart warming video of one good dog named Zuzi who was rescued from a lonely & dangerous life in Romania. Near the end of the video you can click a link to see another video of Zuzi’s new life in Canada. Be warned, you may want to grab a box of tissues.
So remember folks, adopt don’t shop. When you rescue a dog you enrich three lives, yours, the dog you rescued & the one you just made space for.
