First created in 2004 by founder and animal advocate Colleen Paige, National Dog day is an event to celebrate all kinds of dogs, whether purebred, mutts, rescues, or foster dogs, according to the website NationalDogDay.com.
While celebrities and known animal lovers like Arci Munoz, Sunshine Cruz, Joseph Marco, Kim Molina, Rocco Nacino, Joyce Pring, Jason Abalos chose to post photos of themselves with their beloved pets, other personalities like Yassi Pressman, Hero Angeles, and Vivoree Esclito preferred to give the spotlight to their furbabies with a solo photo or video.
