It's National Puppy Day & We Can't Handle The Cuteness!

Friday is arguably the cutest, fluffiest, cuddliest day of the year... that's because it's National Puppy Day!

"Puppies are the most trusting and joyous creatures on the planet," said Colleen Paige, founder of National Puppy Day. "Oh, to be more like a puppy."

According to the day's very own website, "National Puppy Day is 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."

The National Puppy Day website lists ways to celebrate the day, including (but not limited to):

  1. Adopt a puppy from your local shelter, rescue or pure breed rescue organization
  2. Are you prepared for puppy parenting? Start off on the right paw! Hire a professional that can help you
  3. Donate money, food and toys to your local shelter
  4. Organize a peaceful demonstration in front of your community pet store that sells puppies
  5. Write your Congressman and ask that he/she support the ban of Puppy Mills in your state
  6. Assist an ill or elderly neighbor by walking their puppy
  7. Have a puppy party and invite all your friends and their puppies!
  8. Join a fun, dog friendly community online and post pics of your puppy for the world to ooh and ahh over!
  9. Host a community event to raise money for your local animal shelter
  10. Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to walk a puppy or play with a puppy, clean cages or anything else they need help with
