Today is National Dog Day! Have You Hugged Your Pooch Today?

By Robert Paul Reyes

Today is National Dog Day; the event was founded in 2004 to raise awareness of dogs in need of homes and the love and loyalty they bring to our lives.


I`ve been posting articles online since 1998, thousands of my essays on diverse and sundry subjects are floating in cyberspace, and I doubt that my political editorials have changed anyone`s minds, but I pray that my compositions on pets have inspired hundreds to adopt a kitten or a puppy.

I am on a mission from God to encourage folks to adopt pets from their local animal shelter, for a dog lover like me every day is National Dog Day.

You may have the greatest spouse in the world, the most fulfilling career, and loving and understanding friends, but your life isn`t complete without a pooch.

A canine is a faithful companion,  he will always be there for you, especially when you really need a wet sloppy kiss. National Dog Day is the perfect day to visit your local animal shelter and bring home a puppy.
