It's National Dog Day And We Think You Should Celebrate

Doggone, it’s National Dog Day! Which means two things – firstly, it’s a great day to celebrate your canine friend. Why not buy them a bone on your way home from work (or better yet, a pupcake!), give them a special tummy scratch or even let them roll around in a puddle.

Secondly, it gives you a totally legit excuse to a) check out The Ruffington Post on your Instagram, if you haven’t already, and b) watch our hilarious video (dogs annoying cats with friendship... you know you want to).

Happy National Dog Day, all!
