Happy Belated National Dog Appreciation Day

Happy Belated National Dog Appreciation Day

National Dog Appreciation Day on August 26th has been celebrated every year since 2004.  The purpose of the holiday is to show appreciation for the millions of the dogs in the U.S. that keep us safe and bring us comfort and companionship. We must not forget the dogs who are service animals and work for the police departments.

Here are 13 suggestions:

  1. Adopt a dog from your local shelter or pure breed rescue organization. Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to walk a dog or play with a dog, clean cages or anything else they need help with.
  2. Have a safety check of your home to make sure it’s safe for your dog and others.Make sure the dogs cannot get out of your fence in the yard.
  3. Donate blankets, food and toys to animal welfare organizations. In our area we have YAPS.
  4. Write your Congressman and ask that he/she support the ban of Puppy Mills and city shelters that are not no-kill shelters.
  5. Have a National Dog Day party and invite all your friends and their dogs!
  6. Spend the day taking photos of your dog.
  7. Assist an ill or elderly neighbor by walking their dog.
  8. Buy your dog a fun new dog toy or chewy sticks.
  9. Give your dog some fun exercise by taking him or her to a doggy day care.
  10. Brush your dog to eliminate excess fur.
  11. Give your dog a massage or holistic spa treatment.
  12. Teach your dog a new trick.
  13. Buy your dog a fashionable collar and leash.
  14. Give your dogs hugs and kisses every day not just on Dog Apprec. Day.

Here is my dog asleep at my desk. I don't usually get photos of her with her eyes shut.
