14 ways dogs celebrate National Dog Day

Happy National Dog Day

It’s National Dog Day, a day, according to Colleen Paige, “to celebrate dogs for their capacity to love and their ability to impact our lives everyday in the most miraculous ways.”

In honor of this day, we’ll be donating dog food to our local shelter, to help other dogs find a fur-ever home (article to come!)

As for our dogs, Lilah, Jasper and Tucker have been planning all sorts of activities to celebrate National Dog Day.  I asked them to help me make a list of suggestions for other dogs who want to celebrate their canine heritage.

Here’s their list:

1) Sleep in.
