CHICAGO (CBS) – If you are a dog owner, you have just one shopping day left before National Dog Day, celebrated annually on August 26, which is tomorrow (Monday). Non-dog owners are being urged to adopt from a local shelter by pet advocate Colleen Paige, the human who created the canine holiday back in 2004.
“Dogs are really doing everything that we wished we could do for each other,” says Paige. “They love unconditionally and we really can’t love each other unconditionally…we’re just not made like that. I think it’s such a travesty that dogs are so abused and neglected when they are one of the most wonderful creatures on this earth.”
