JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As if you needed another reason to dote on your pup, here’s one more: Wednesday is National Dog Day.
At News4JAX, we want to help you celebrate. So, share pictures of your dog with us through StormPins. We’ve set up a special Dog Days category where you can submit glamour shots of your favorite pup. If yours is chosen, it could be featured during The Weather Authority’s Dog Walk Forecast.
This pet-friendly holiday — founded in 2004 by pet lifestyle expert Colleen Paige, according to National Day Calendar — is all about cherishing your best friend. Celebrating it is as easy as taking your pup out for a nice jaunt, giving them an extra treat for the occasion or snapping an adorable picture of them.
No dog at home? No problem. Now’s the perfect time to rescue one and give it a new home. If you’re not looking for that big of a commitment, you might want to consider asking an older neighbor if they could use some help walking their pup. Or you could volunteer as a dog-walker at your local shelter.
Whatever way you plan to celebrate, we’d love to see your dog pictures. Uploading them to StormPins can be done through the News4JAX Weather Authority app (Apple | Android). Otherwise, just login to your free News4JAX Insider account and then go to the StormPins section of our website.
