Of all the holidays taking space on the calendar, National Puppy Day is amongst the most exciting. Not that we don't celebrate pups and doggos everyday. Give me 10 minutes on the Instagram discover page, and I will be approximately 100 puppy videos deep. But the day belongs to the pups, so to celebrate, there are tons of deals and coupons for National Puppy Day. So, you can throw the dog a bone and then a second one for half off!
Even if you're a cat person, it's hard to deny the power of the pup. Seeing a good dog trot down the street overwhelms us with emotion to the point where we lose function and our voice climbs a few octaves and our language is manipulated into a gibberish that somehow makes tails wag.
Get ready to speak the aforementioned puppy language and parade your best four pawed pal around. National Puppy Day, established in 2006, will be celebrated on Mar. 23. But it's not only a day to give your dog some extra treats. It's a day to acknowledge the dogs in shelters and spotlight that adopt-don't-shop life. National Puppy Day's official website describes the now international holiday as, "a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it's a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills."
While you're perusing deals for your pup, think about all the pups awaiting their furever homes and donate time, supplies, and maybe even your home to the very worthy, very cute, very snuggly dogs at a local shelter.
