    Let's take some time to appreciate how much dogs have kept us busy during quarantine. Seriously, I'm pretty sure my dog is fed up with the amount of walks I take him.

    Some doggy facts..............The world's largest dog was the Great Dane named Zeus, he died in 2014 but still remains the largest dog ever.

    And the smallest dog in the world is the breed....Chihuahua! They tend to be overprotective of their owner, for such a small dog. They originated from Mexico.

    But seriously, International dog day is something very important. Its to raise awareness of the importance of providing rescue dogs with a safe and loving environment, and to adopt dogs. Deep and cute.

    So to all the dogs out there, HAPPY INTERNATIONAL DOG DAY! May your day be filled with hugs, tummy rubs, and treats!
