National Purebred Dog Day
May 1st is National Purebred Dog Day!
This day is celebrated to honor the heritage, diversity, and predictability of the purebred dog.
It was created in 2013 by Suzi Szeremy who wanted to make sure all dogs are valued whatever their ancestry is. Over 400 dog breeds exist today, and many are at risk of vanishing. It is important to be aware of that.
On March 10th, 2015 Colorado became the first state in the country to recognize May 1st as National Purebred Dog Day, as Connecticut and Georgia followed later in time!
