Puppies are little angels on earth, with furs instead of wings and tiny barks instead of wands that weave happiness into your life.
While we should appreciate these little wonders every day, National Puppy Day is only about them!
When is the National Puppy Day?
Celebrated on 23rd March every year, National Puppy Day was conceptualized to bring awareness to these little animals’ health and well-being.
Colleen Paige, an animal behaviorist, animal welfare advocate, Pet Lifestyle expert, initiated National Puppy Day, National Dog Day, National Cat Day, National Pet Day, National Wildlife Day, etc. That’s why our Li’l paw friends got an extra special day to love and care more.
There are lots to talk about puppy habits, routines to enhance their immunity, special care for their growth, mental health, and physical well-being.
Let’s dive into various ways to celebrate our adorable puppies, spread love, disseminate information about puppy adoption, bring awareness to diabolical puppy mills, etc.
Etymologists suggest that the term puppy may have originated from poupeé, a French word meaning doll or toy. The word puppy didn’t become a part of the English language until the late 16th century. Before that era, English speakers called baby dogs whelps.
Gift Your Valuable Time for Your Precious Pups
You can spend time with your pup by taking him/her to the dog park, the beach, puppy play areas, long walks, and many more, and trust me, they will be thankful for every minute of it.
Its Treats All The Way!
Dog owners know that their pup’s best part is their love for food, and foodies are the best kind to hang with. Treat your pup with their favorite binge food, take them to their favorite pet-friendly restaurant and get ice cream or something they drool over.
Also, make some homemade treats for your pet and toss them with Waggle Pet Camera. Ensure the treats are dry and must be 9 – 15mm in size for an easy toss. Yup! Your Li’l pup will enjoy this treat game.
Do Things Together
Did you know that puppy therapies in major cities are brought to your home to spend time with you, as long you need it!
You could also take your pup to a doggy spa where they’re treated like royalty, giving them grooming, bath, hair cut, nail trim, clean ears, cologne sprays, and even cucumbers placed on their eyes in a sauna. When you find a facility that offers a doggy spa near you, trust me, this will be more than just a one-time thing.
Puppy photoshoots are shooting up in popularity as people sometimes love their dogs more than their families, and you could go to exotic locations or to your backyard to snap stunning pictures with your pup.
Say No to Puppy Mills
According to humanesociety.org, a heart-wrenching 2.6 million puppies that are bred in mills are sold annually. These dogs are birthed from inhumane breeding practices where they are locked up in cages and are forced to breed just for money.
Being aware of this practice and ensuring the dog you’re buying or adopting is not a product of this heartless factory will not only save puppy lives but put the monsters who practice it behind bars. If you come across a puppy mill, raise a complaint with your nearest authorities.
ASPCA approximates that around 3.3 million dogs enter shelters annually, and some of these are merely weeks old. Fostering, adopting, and feeding stray puppies are the best ways to celebrate national puppy day, and we urge you to adopt a puppy from the shelter rather than purchasing one. Adopting saves a dog that may be put down, discourages puppy mills, and saves you money.
