Celebrate! Aug. 26 Is

National Dog Day! Woof! 


Sure, it seems like a holiday each and every day we are with our cool canines, but on Aug. 26, it is day dedicated to that top dog in your life in a national holiday known as National Dog Day.

Credit pet expert Colleen Paige for creating this day to celebrate all our dogs do for us. She was inspired to create this holiday after paging through a coffee table book that depicted the horrors and triumphs of 9/11 and discover there was not a single mention of the hundreds of rescue dogs who put their lives on the line at Ground Zero to help the emergency crews.

National Dog Party Day:

Hey all you paw-tee animals! Mark your calendars for June 21, 2013. That's the date for the third annual  National Dog Party Day! Created by Arden Moore, this annual K9 soiree is a true date night for you and your dog, and helps raise money and awareness for worthy pet charities. Doubly nice! 
We will be expanding more party sites in 2013, so keep checking the dog party site for details on how you can be a sponsor and participate. And, once again,  we are delighted to team up with Pet Sitters International, the sponsors of Take Your Dog To Work Day, for a Double Dog Day Celebration in which we "work like a dog by day and party like a pup at night."  

Lights, Cameras...Fascinating Pets! 



We're on the hunt for fun, funky and fascinating videos that spotlight cats, dogs and other animals. Please send your favorites to Arden to share in the next issue. This month, we feature two videos that demonstrate the full range of being a great dog.  


The first video, submitted by Audrey Pavia, depicts an aptly named German Shepherd named Hero who pulls a badly injured woman from her car after a severe crash. The second video, submitted by Greg Perkins, depicts the pure glee from a Corgi who discovers how to position himself to make a true splash at a dog splash pad. Enjoy!
