For dog owners, this holiday is every day! It’s #NationalSpoilYourDogDay!
Now I am more of a cat person than a dog person, but I grew up with dogs in my house for most of my life. My family has owned a beagle, whippets, boxer-bulldog mix, labs, huskies, you name it. Many of them were adopted from a shelter. ADOPT! DON’T SHOP!
Many studies have shown that owning a pet can not only enrich our lives, but make us healthier, and more responsible. So make sure if there is a dog in your household make sure to give them a little extra loving. They make great companions, can help us when we are in danger, and can be great protectors of our little ones.
So perhaps play with them a little longer today. Give them a special treat. Maybe take them to a doggie spa…I think they have those. 🙂 And please consider going to your local shelter and if you are prepared to own one, ADOPT! You lives will be better for it. And do a little research to determine what breed could be best for your home.
So do you have any pictures of your canine friend? Share them with us!
