Today is one of the most adorable days of the year! It’s National Puppy Day! This very
cute day was established on March 23 2006 by Colleen Page. This day is all about celebrating puppies, and encouraging adoption. So go snuggle up to your own puppy or dog, or visit your local shelter and volunteer. What an amazing reason to spend a day with a puppy!
Now I know what you’re thinking this can’t be an actual day, but look! Celebrities such as Betty White@BettyMWhite and Adam Savage @donttrythis tweeted about it.
Their website www.nationalpuppyday.com has reasons why you should adopt instead of buy, with tips on making sure the puppies are properly treated whether you are adopting or buying one.
The website also has great tips on finding a new puppy, and how to take care of it. My favourite article they have is “Is your Dog, Your Child?” http://www.nationalpuppyday.com/#!dogchild/cexn
I know that today my dog will be getting even more love and attention! My dog is the most hyper dog you will ever find…..yet he is 12 years old!! I don’t understand how he is so hyper because in dog years he is 84 years old! Maybe his breed is just naturally hyper? He is a schnoodle, which is half schnauzer and half poodle. His name is Scooter and when he gets excited he runs laps around the living room and dining room, and it is the cutest thing ever! (The picture is not actually Scooter when he was a puppy but it is a picture of another schnoodle that looks like him when he was a puppy)
Here’s a video of some really cute puppies by The Daily. Make sure you’re sitting down for it because the video made me melt!
