Today is National Dog Appreciation Day (Wednesday, Aug. 26), and since Michigan has been ranked the #12 most ‘Dog Happy‘ U.S. state, we know you’ll just LOVE this adorable ‘Thank You Doggy’ video!
My 3 little Yorkies pictured above here, are the ‘mama’ Priscilla, Elvis, and Priscilla’s ‘baby’ Miracle. Sadly, we lost our boy Elvis earlier this year, due to age and illness. My ‘fur-babies’ have my heart and soul for sure!
I thought this video was so cute and wanted to share with you too, so check out this heartwarming new video from Milo’s Kitchen, reminding us why we should hug our dog today!
Some of the survey findings included:
* 86% of dog parents say their dog “comforts them immeasurably”
* 71% say their dog “reminds them to seek out more joy in life”
* 64% say their dog “makes them look forward to going home more than anything else”
* 63% say their dogs “make them much more patient and responsible”
To create the national doggy appreciation ranking, Milo’s Kitchen brand dog treats surveyed 3,000 dog parents to determine how regularly they engage in thankful, grateful, and loving behaviors with their dogs (such as buying regular gifts for their dog, petting their dog, and telling their dog “I Love You”).
