7 days, 17 hours, 10 minutes, 39 secs left until National Dog Day on Saturday, 26th August, 2017
Dogs are considered to be Man’s best friend. Dogs are those furry four-legged animals who cannot speak to us yet are ready to give people uncommitted love, asking for nothing else in return except a bit of food, water, a place to put their head down at night and maybe a bit of love in return. So it seems only fair to honor dogs with their own special day.
National Dog Day was founded by the National Dog Day Foundation. The motto of the foundation calls for the saving of 10,000 dogs – a day at a time. This is a day to honor dogs.
One might wonder why so much importance is given to just dogs. There are guide dogs who lead the blind, sniffer dogs who risk their life sniffing out bombs and drugs, watchdogs who protect us and our property and the list just goes on and on. So here literally, every dog has its day.
"In some countries such as Nepal and India they worship dogs"
The above activities are just a few of the many dog-oriented things one can do on National Dog Day. The main thing to remember here is that to honor and respect dogs is something that anyone can do. On this day, just do your bit and contribute to the movement to show dogs that we care for them just as much as they care for us.
