Seriously, how can you not want to snuggle up to this cute lil’ puppy. Doesn’t it just make you want to stop what you’re doing and take the rest of the day off and play with this cute little thing. Of course, today would be a perfect day to do it because it’s National Puppy Day.
As much as it is nice to cuddle up to a cute little puppy, National Puppy Day is designed to build awareness around the hundreds of thousands of orphaned puppies around the world, as well as to help educate individuals about the awful stories and events happening within puppy mills. National Puppy Day actually started back in 2006 and stems from National Dog and National Cat Day. The founder of National Puppy Day is Colleen Paige. She is a nationally recognized animal behaviorist, interior designer, writer, author and photographer and her work has been recognized around the globe.
National Puppy Day, is a great opportunity to reach out to your puppy or dog and show them they love and affection they deserve in return, especially on a day like today. Take a few minutes to evaluate your relationship with your puppy. Are they eating well? Are they digesting well? Do they take the appropriate vitamins/supplements to develop a strong body? Is there any stress in their life, what can be done to relieve that anxiety? Are they comfortable? Are they happy? What are somethings that you can do to make them feel better about life.
Even if you don’t have a puppy, maybe you know someone that does. Take a few minutes to reach out to them and ask for a quick cuddle. Your day will be much better once you do.
Happy Dogs. Inside and Out.
