(WCBD) – Who doesn’t love puppies?
Thursday, March 23 is a day to indulge in that puppy love. It’s National Puppy Day!
Founded in 2006 by celebrity pet and lifestyle author Colleen Paige, National Puppy Day was launched as a way to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring into our lives.
The day is also intended to help save orphaned puppies, to educate the public about puppy mills and to push for puppy-free pet stores.
Paige is also the founder behind National Dog Day and National Cat Day.
National Puppy Day has trended worldwide on Twitter since 2012, and so far, 2015 appears to be no exception. According to initial data from Topsy.com, the hashtag #NationalPuppyDay had already been used more than 10,000 times by noon.
