National Dog Day is observed annually on August 26th. This day 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. ... The goal of theNational Dog Day Foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs each year. Here are some pics of my dogs "Pepper" & "Chopper" both Chihuahuas, and "Bowie" a Blue Merle Pomeranian, with one blue eye (like his namesake) taken from his Instagram page.
