Happy National Dog Day: 26 Facts About Bailey

Bailey with Hello World Collar Dot

Happy National Dog Day, pet parents!

Here at Dear Bailey, we’re big fans of pretty much every holiday. Any excuse for a celebration, are we right?! But today has got to be one of our paws-down favorite days of the year: National Dog Day!

Today, we celebrate dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes. That’s because we believe all dogs deserve to live long, happy, healthy lives.

So, if you have a dog – be sure to give them an extra hug and kiss today. Or bake them a yummy pet-friendly treat. Or take them on an extra long walk!

And if you don’t have a dog, consider donating supplies like blankets and food to your local animal welfare organization. Or gift your favorite pet parent a new Collar Dot for their fur baby!

In honor of National Dog Day falling on August 26, we’re sharing 26 fun facts about our own doggo, Bailey. Enjoy!
