Happy National Dog Day It's pooch appreciation time for everyone's favorite Disney dog. Pluto "Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog the world will change forever" I love that quote so much tears come down my face. Today encourages dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure, and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and “abuse-free life”. Dogs give us companionship, they keep us safe and they aid those in need. It is a goal, for many on National Dog Day, to find homes for all dogs in need of a loving family. The goal of the National Dog Day foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs each year.
