Dogs help us in so many ways that it’s nearly impossible to name everything they do.  From protecting us in the Military & Police force, finding us as Search and Rescue, and just being a part of our families.

National Dog day is August 26th and celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure. The mission is to help bring attention to the public the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. 

The most important part of National dog day is to spend some time with your dog.  You should do something that you normally don’t do.  Maybe buy them a toy.
