The whole world celebrated National Dog’s Appreciation Day on August 26, 2020. Have you recognized this day with your dog too? Did you do some surprise or some fantastic thing with them during that day?
Well, it’ll be useful if you threw a simple event at home that will be adored by your buddy. Some people tried offering a customize yummy cake for their pups, and others sought to take a day off to spend some bonding time with their dog.
The National Dog’s Day started in 2004. This celebration was initiated by Colleen Paige, an animal, and pet family lifestyle expert. Dog’s Awareness day aims to raise awareness about a massive number of dogs currently in the rescue centers.
This event also encourages the people, especially those who love dogs so much, to adopt dogs in the shelters.
Each year, thousands of homeless dogs are being recorded because some people abandoned their dogs. National Dog’s Day does not only commemorates those dogs who are in the rescue facilities but also those dogs who need care and assistance.
Before jumping through the end, we don’t want to end this post with a sad tone for our readers. So, we’ve got some trivia for you that might help get to know your dogs well!
Did you know that dogs spend almost half of their days asleep? According to akc.org, 30% of dogs are awake but relaxing and only %20 being active? Also, senior dogs tend to sleep more because they quickly get tired.
It also applies to the dog’s general rule that bigger dogs need to sleep more.
Although the world is having some crazy problems right now, celebrations like this keep everyone optimistic in the coming days. Plus, there are still many upcoming events in the remaining months of the year. Still, there’s so much to look forward to than having a negative mindset.
