Celebrate National Dog Day!
How Will You Celebrate National Dog Day?
National Dog Day is always celebrated on August 26 of each year. It was created in 2004 by the National Dog Day Foundation as a way to encourage dog ownership and to provide dogs with a happy, safe, abuse free life. What a wonderful goal! That furry four-footed creature, little or big, who has stolen your heart... that amazing police dog you saw being a hero... those awesome dogs who serve the disabled as assistance dogs... and that fuzzy little scrawny mutt you rescued from the pound... That's who we're celebrating on National Dog Day!
Are you owned by a canine? Come on, 'fess up... you know you are! I certainly am. I've worked with over 50 rescue dog cases since 2000 when I started Sheila's Schnauzies Miniature Schnauzer Rescue & Sanctuary in Omaha, Nebraska... most of them Miniature Schnauzers, every one with a different personality, almost every one placed into a forever loving home! Those are the dogs I am personally celebrating on Dog Day! I'm also celebrating my own beloved pets who are now at Rainbow Bridge – Sheina Marie, Sparky Lynn, and Scrappy Jack. I'm celebrating my rescues who have gone to the Bridge too – so many – Lily Rose, Ivy, Baxter,Tosha, Springer, Bailey, Koby and Monty. And there are others. All of them passed away in loving homes after many wonderful years there.
So grab your own Fido or Fiona, give him or her a big hug for me, and let's explore how to celebrate National Dog Day!
