National Dog Day!!!
I don’t know about you, but I am so excited to celebrate today! I am utterly obsessed with my dog, and to me, nothing is better than having a whole day dedicated to celebrating my baby boy. Before I get started on ways to celebrate National Dog Day, I want to tell you a little bit about Diesel, my five-year-old Boxer.
Everyone always asks if I have a dog, and as soon as I hear the question, I just get so excited because I have the chance to talk about him. To me, he’s the cutest dog ever (but what owner doesn’t say that?!). Diesel is pretty small for a Boxer, but he’s not miniature if that makes sense. He has the cutest tail and a double underbite! My sweet boy was adopted on Valentine's Day in 2015 (he turned five this year). His favorite snack is a treat dipped in peanut butter, and he loves going to day camp! But enough about Diesel lets get started on ways to celebrate National Dog Day!
- Go to the dog park and have a playdate!
Dogs love to run and play! Grab a friend and have a play date at your nearest dog park!
- Grab a Puppuccino from Starbucks!
To all my fellow coffee lovers, grab a coffee, and get a treat for your dog at the same time! Starbucks has small cups of whipped cream that’s a perfect sized treat for all dogs!
