NATIONAL PUPPY DAY!
I love puppies 💖💖🐶🐩
Observed each year on March 23rd is National Puppy Day. National Puppy Day will be celebrated on the Friday or Monday closest to March 23rd if that day falls on a weekend. This day was created to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives.
Psst… In case you didn’t know, today is a very special day indeed. If you happen to be a dog owner, you should be celebrating right about now. Why? Well, because today is actually the official National Puppy Day. That’s right. It’s the one day a year when you should pay extra attention to your pup and show them just how much they mean to you.
So, how should you celebrate this very special day?
TAKE YOUR PUPPY ON A WALK
If there’s one thing that dogs love more than anything else in the world, it’s walks. Exercise is essential for your pet, especially if you want them to be both happy and healthy. Today, why not take your pup on an extra long walk? Or a ride in a puppy-stroller if he/she is a pint-size. Make sure that you plan out the route ahead of time. Nothing could be better than spending quality time with your dog.
GIVE YOUR PUPPY CUDDLES ON THE SOFA
Oh, and the doggy love does not have to stop there! While you’re unwinding with a book or watching your favorite Netflix series, make some room for your pet. Call your puppy up onto the sofa with you and give them all the love and attention they deserve. You honestly won’t regret it.
🐩🐩 They'll never break your heart, they'll never make you cry... 🐕#NationalPuppyDay 💖💖
BUY PUPPY TREATS
There are healthy treats available online and delivered to your door. Or you can stop off at the store on the way home and grab them something tasty.
GET YOUR PUPPY A BRAND NEW TOY
If your pup has been extra good recently, you will want to show them how much you care. Getting them a new toy is fun for everyone! If your puppy is still young, buy them a fun chew-toy so that you can help them with the teething process. Or, my puppy (Chanel) and I both play 'squeak-toy' play-off. I'll squeak 3-times on my and she will echo with her toy--they we switch :-).
Is your pet looking a little dirty? Well, never fear! There’s just one thing that you need to do. Run a warm-ish bath for your puppy and give them a wash. They might not like it at first, but they will adore the feeling of being clean and cozy afterward.
TALK TO YOUR PUPPY
You may not realize it but dogs happen to love it when you chat to them. Many dog owners don’t bother to chit-chat with their pet, but you really should! Take the time to say encouraging, loving things to your dog. It will make them oh-so-happy. Puppies love the sound of you voice
PLAY IN THE YARD WITH THEM
If you don’t have time to take your dog for walk, you should still give them a little exercise. Play a game of catch in the yard with them. They will love the extra attention you give them and you will definitely have a whole load of fun too.
JUST LOVE THEM MORE THAN EVER!
Finally, this day is all about love and affection. Just show your dog some extra attention today! After all, that’s what really counts. Our puppies are the cutest and sweetest things in our lives. Let’s take today to celebrate how very much they mean to us.
Wishing you had a puppy to call your own?
Adopting, Fostering, or looking for a puppy who is available for and older dog available via re-homing is always an option.
My late greyhound, Justine, was abandoned in the hills of Alta Loma, CA. Rescued, and re-homed with me, she was the gentlest and sweetest couch-potato I'd ever known. She lived to be 16 years old--and I still miss her.
