National Dog Day is being celebrated across the country on Thursday! From precious pets to life-saving Labradors, the day encourages people to share their lives with dogs of all breeds. Dogs are the most popular pet in America, with The American Veterinary Medical Association citing that 57 percent of households had a pet at the end of 2016.
