About National Puppy Day

When is National Puppy Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 23

National Puppy Day, also called International Puppy Day, celebrates puppies! This March 23 holiday is a special day to recognize the unconditional love puppies give us, and the joy they bring into our lives. It should come as no surprise, that one of the goals of National Puppy Day, is to encourage us to adopt orphaned puppies. Also, we might add that adopting an adult dog is a good way to celebrate today.  They need good homes, too.

Bringing a new dog into your home is a mixture of pure joy and trouble at the same time. Who can resist adopting these adorable, playful little guys!? A dog is truly a man’s, and woman’s best friend. They anxiously await your return from work or shopping. Dogs are always at your side, especially if they know you have a treat in your hand or pocket. And, puppies are especially playful, jumping all over you and your furniture, nipping, and eating any shoes you’ve carelessly left out. Slippers are fair game for them, too. You never know what mischief they will get into until you find the toilet paper roll is unraveled and destroyed, or the garbage can is tipped over with refuse all over the kitchen.

As you consider taking a dog into your family, remember that little puppies grow up to be big puppies. Keep in mind the potential size of the puppy you are thinking of getting. Otherwise, he will take (drag) you for walks when he is mature.
