My puppy Roxy is 10 months old now and bringing her home last summer was one of the smartest things my husband and I have done. She's a cuddler, a lover, and an over the top greeter when anyone comes to our home. She brought happiness after our old dog passed away.

National Puppy Day is a celebration of the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives.  National Puppy Day is also a day to bring awareness to the need for care of and homes for orphaned pups as well as to educate people about the horrors of puppy mills across the country.
