Today is National Puppy Day! Adopt a Puppy! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Happiness, Charles M. Schulz famously observed, is a warm puppy.

Today, on National Puppy Day, there`s always plenty of happiness to go around

National Puppy Day is the brainchild of Colleen Paige, a lifestyle expert who also created National Dog Day and National Cat Day. The goal, says the National Puppy Day website, is "to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills."


Happiness is indeed a warm puppy, a warm puppy sleeping on your lap, a warm puppy making friends with your pet cats, a warm puppy following you around the house ...

Mandy has been my constant companion for almost a decade, when I adopted her from my local animal shelter she was a warm adorable puppy, after all this time she still likes to rest her warm muzzle on my lap, as we relax after  a long day of play.

National Puppy Day is the perfect time to remind people that there are many healthy and beautiful puppies waiting for a forever home at animal shelters.

Dogs at animal shelters are checked by veterinarians, spayed or neutered and vaccinated before they are released for adoption, they are much healthier than dogs purchased at doggy mills. 

Are you feeling lonely, depressed and exhausted? A warm puppy will brighten your spirits and energize your soul more than a session with shrink or a couple of hours at the gym.

My friend, I wish you happiness, I wish you a warm puppy.
