Dog Day is held on August 26. Was founded by a woman - Colleen Paige - in 2004. This event in the third decade of the month August is annual.
The date of 26 August is significant as it marks the day when Colleen's family adopted their first dog "Sheltie" from an animal shelter, when Colleen was 10 years old.
National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure.
