Puppies are adorable and puppies are perfect in young families where they can grow with children. They teach kids about responsibility and unconditional love amongst many other things that we could list. But, some have taken advantage of the cuteness and it's attraction. National Puppy Day wasn't founded to just look at cute puppy pictures (although it makes for a day full of smiles if you're on Facebook). It was created to bring awareness to the fact that there are puppy mills and other sources for puppies that might not be ideal.
"National Puppy Day is a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it's a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills, as well as further our mission for a nation of puppy-free pet stores." - Colleen Paige (founded NPD in 2006)
So . . . with that being said, I hope you Facebookers smile all day long from the overload of puppy pictures. Enjoy! :O)
