We don’t need a National Dog Day. We at Woofington’s World support everyday in every way appreciation. But there is a National Dog Day (or National Dog Appreciation Day) every August 26th and here’s a helpful list from NationalDogDay.com of ways to celebrate. (I got thrown an extra biscuit because my owners missed the day!)

• Adopt a dog from your local shelter or pure breed rescue organization.
• Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to walk a dog or play with a dog, clean cages or anything else they need help with.
• Have a safety check of your home to make sure it’s safe for your dog and others.
• Donate blankets, food and toys to animal welfare organizations.
• Organize a peaceful demonstration in front of your community pet store that sells puppies.
• Write your Congressman and ask that he/she support the ban of Puppy Mills and Gas Chambers in your state.
• Order an adorable dog shaped flower arrangement from 1-800-Flowers.com
• Have a National Dog Day party and invite all your friends and their dogs!
• Spend the day taking photos of your dog.
• Assist an ill or elderly neighbor by walking their dog.
• Buy your dog a fun new dog toy….or two…or five.
• Give your dog some fun exercise by taking him or her to a doggy play resort.
• Brush your dog to eliminate excess fur.
• Give your dog a massage or holistic spa treatment.
• Teach your dog a new trick.
• Buy your dog a fashionable collar and leash.
