NATIONAL DOG DAY

Sunday, August 26th: Today is for the dogs; it’s NATIONAL DOG DAY. Sponsored by the Animal Miracle Foundation, they share a slew of ideas about how to celebrate the day. Below are a few, for the rest go check out their site http://www.nationaldogday.com/ways_to_celebrate.htm

  • 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.
  • Donate blankets, food and toys to animal welfare organizations.
  • Have a National Dog Day party and invite all your friends and their dogs!
  • Join a fun, dog friendly community online and post pics of your pooch for the world to ooh and ahh over!
  • Assist an ill or elderly neighbor by walking their dog.
  • Buy your dog a fun new dog toy.
  • Give your dog some fun exercise by taking him or her to a doggy play resort.
  • Brush your dog to eliminate excess fur.
  • Give your dog a massage or holistic spa treatment.
  • Buy your dog a new collar.
  • Take your dog on a pet friendly vacation.
  • Buy yourself and your dog some matching tee shirts!
  • Create a Facebook page for your dog to share photos and stories for friends and family.
  • Dog-proof your pool to prevent the risk of drowning.
  • Microchip & I.D. Tag your dog so the shelter can locate you if he gets lost.
  • Teach your children and their friends to be kind to your dog by never pulling on his ears or tail.
  • Pledge to walk your dog every day for proper health and behavior management.
  • Install a fence around your unfenced yard so your dog can run and enjoy some freedom at home.
  • Pledge to never chain your dog to a tree or doghouse. Always include your dog in your family by letting him live inside the home with you.
  • And last but not least – pledge to never yell at or hit your dog…to be patient and kind and give your dog lots of love and praise every day.
