National Puppy Day is the celebration of not only puppies but of every dog as they never really grow out of their childish, playful nature.

The date, March 23, was first set aside in 2006 by the author Colleen Paige, before other groups and organizations followed suit. The idea is to call attention to puppies in need of adoption and the abuses found in puppy mills.
