26 August - International Dog Day
In the year 2004, the day was founded by animal welfare advocate and pet lifestyle expert, Collen Paige. He is also a conservationist, dog trainer, and author. The date 26 August was selected for International Dog Day because it was the first time when Paige's family adopted Sheltie; he was 10-years-old.
Dogs may be able to fall in love with you. Dogs can read our emotions. Dogs have 18 muscles to move their ears. Some dogs are incredible swimmers. Their sense of smell is at least 40x better than ours.
