Today is National Puppy Day, and Daisy is almost 8 but we still think of her as our puppy dog! Most pet parents we know don’t need an excuse to spoil their fur kids, regardless of whether they are a puppy, adult or senior dog. There is one very special occasion that does deserves some extra celebrating and that’s your dog’s birthday or adoption day.

Daisy is a rescue dog so we celebrate her adoption day, which many dog moms and dads call “Gotcha Day”.
