Dog Holidays

At National Today, we are big fans of dogs. BIG fans. All of the good boys and girls around the world deserve every opportunity to be celebrated, which is why we have nearly 50 opportunities to do so. Not only are dogs the purest, sweetest creatures around, they can also serve very important military and health-related duties that help humans every day. In other words, we don’t deserve dogs, but we’re going to delegate holidays in their honor, anyway!
