Happy National Dog Day!
National Dog Day is August 26. What a great excuse to appreciate dogs of all shapes and sizes (and breeds) for everything that they offer and do for us. Whether they are guide dogs, therapy dogs, and/or companion animals, all dogs are special. These remarkable creatures deserve some love and appreciation! So find a spot to cuddle up with your dog, and dig (or bite!) into one of our greatest past dog-blogs.
