Dogs bring so much joy to our lives. We are forever grateful for their unconditional love, slobbery kisses and goofy grins. They do so much for us that it’s only fitting to have a day set aside to celebrate and honor these loyal companions.
National Dog Day, held annually on August 26, is a day to reflect on all of the reasons why dogs are so amazing and to show our four-legged friends just how much we love and appreciate them.
But is one day really enough? Here are 10 reasons why every day should be National Dog Day.
No judgment here.
Derpy faces cure all.
They never skip ahead and watch episodes of your favorite shows without you!
You could come up with 100 reasons why you should never go outside (there’s PEOPLE out there!), but if you have a dog, you have one very good reason to get up, go outside and enjoy some fresh air.
Speaking of going outside, when we’re out and about, our dogs are attention magnets. They’re the celebrities and you’re the celebrity’s assistant caught in the background of a paparazzi pic with your mouth open. But with all that attention can come the opportunity to meet new people and possible even *gasp* make new friends!
They just know.
Even though they have a comfy orthopedic dog bed just for themselves.
Or at least they they try to be.
Dogs just might love you more than they love themselves.
