If you were considering getting a dog why not make this the day?

It's National Dog Day. It's a day to celebrate man's best friend. Normally I don't jump on the national day bandwagons very often but why not when the main focus are cute dogs? Dog owners love to show of their four legged companions any chance they get. This is the day to celebrate your pups.

According to Psychology Today, owning a dog can help increase your mood, lower your stress levels along with make you more active physically and socially.
