International Dog Day

International Dog Day 

Dog’s have long held a special role in our lives. They’ve kept us company and worked for us for thousands of years, so it’s fitting that there’s a day just for them. International Dog Day comes around each year August 26 to celebrate dogs and all they do for us and to encourage adoption of dogs in need of a home. We can see our relationship with dogs in the thousands of photographs, editorial cartoons, and other materials housed in our digital collections.
