Moms have a special day dedicated to them.   Dads are celebrated in June. 

Did you know dogs have a holiday, too?  National Dog Day is celebrated annually on August 26th

It's also known as International Dog Day & National Dog Appreciation Day. 

It was founded in 2004 by Colleen Paige, an animal behaviorist and author.  "I founded National Dog Day  to honor dogs, to give them "a day", to show our deep appreciation for the historical connection of companionship with one another - for their endearing patience, unquestioning loyalty, for their work protecting our streets, homes and families as Police K-9's, Military Working Dogs, Guide Dogs and Therapy Dogs," said Paige.
