See that picture? Go ahead and say it, ” awwwww!” Who couldn’t love that adorable black pup? But did you know that the same stigma that surrounds black cats also affects black dogs? It’s crazy but true! Even today, there are still people who mistakenly believe that black dogs are bad omens and harbingers of rotten luck. National Black Dog Day, celebrated each year on October 1, seeks to change that.
We love black dogs! Their shiny coats are like satin, especially when you’re out playing in the warm sunshine. Unfortunately, too many black dogs languish in shelters because people are hesitant to adopt them. Today is the day to give black dogs the love they deserve!
