It’s National Puppy Day! This is one of my favorite holidays because it helps remind people to adopt pets like me. I don’t know where I would be if my owners didn’t adopt me. So spreading the word about pet adoption is one way I like to give back.

Whether you are planning to adopt a puppy or are just looking to celebrate the day with your four-legged companion, check out the National Puppy Day’s Official Site. You’ll find lots of goodies on the site, such as the top 20 Puppy Names of 2011 – is your name on the list? My name is on the list!  Also be sure to check the site for the winners of the “America’s Most Beautiful Puppy” Contest – they’ll be announcing the top 3 winners today. You have to check out the Puppy Theater for a collection of funny pet videos from across the internet! And finally, find 50 ways to celebrate National Puppy Day!

In addition to fun things like treating your pet to new treats and toys, a couple of my favorite ideas from the list are:

  • Microchip & I.D. Tag your puppy your puppy so the shelter can locate you if he gets lost.
  • Make sure you have all vaccines and a regular health exam.

I like these ideas because the serve as important health and safety reminders for us pets! Have fun today, celebrating this day for the dogs with your owners! Don’t forget to tell them how much you appreciate them adopting you, I know adoption has changed my life. How will you celebrate National Puppy Day?
