In case you missed it, National Dog Day was yesterday. Now in its 10th year running, the day was founded by animal behaviorist Colleen Paige in 2004 and has captured the heart of dog-lovers everywhere. Here's more on why Colleen founded the day from the official website:
”I founded National Dog Day in 2004 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."
Ten years later, dog-lovers are on YouTube and sharing their favorite dog videos. So without further ado, here's a selection of some of the best dog videos on the Internet:
