National Dog Day is all over Facebook and various media outlets, yet it does not exist in Wikipedia. I did find a website attributing NDD to Colleen Paige of something called the Animal Miracle Foundation. This Animal Miracle Foundation/Network, while having a .org web address, states that it does not qualify as 501 charity. Neither Colleen Paige nor the foundation have entries on Wikipedia either. Seems a little self-referential and shifty to me.
Comparatively National Donut Day does have an entry and it’s origin is less puerile than expected.
Nonetheless, here are a few of pix from the last few days. For me, every day is a Dog Day and I like it that way.
