Today is a very special day for many of us. Today is the day that should all celebrate our ride or die, the ones who are always thrilled to see us walk through the door. National Dog Day exists to remind dog owners that we are in fact lucky to have them by our side.

If you don't have a dog, let me tell you there is no better feeling than coming home to a dog. They are thrilled and beyond excited that you made it home, I wish I was that happy to see people. If you wish you had your own welcoming home committee, just adopt a dog.

What can you do to show your dog how much you love them? Here are 7 easy things you can do.

Celebrate National Dog's Day by welcoming a new furry family member into your home. We have so many pets in the Ark-La-Tex needing new homes. You can help make a difference.
